Regarding the latest situation of indigenous digital currency in the country, the Minister of Communications and Information Technology stated that the Central Bank has now reached the stage of recognizing and interacting with digital currencies from a stage that generally rejected cryptocurrencies as a process and technology Slowly
According to digital currency and to Quoted From ISNA, when talking about digital currencies in our country became hot, in March 2017, Mohammad Javad Azari Jahromi, Minister of Communications and Information Technology, announced the pilot implementation of the country’s first digital currency by Postbank and its submission to the banking system for approval.
The Minister of Communications had announced at the time:
It will be useful if foreign digital currencies operate in Iran and we can use them in some small transactions. However, the central bank’s policy is that it does not currently recognize bitcoins, Ethereums and other currencies.
However, three years after the introduction of the indigenous digital currency scheme, there has been no specific news of the launch of this technology product. However, since then, the Blockchain Association has also announced that steps have been taken to launch a national digital currency, including a number of projects in Iran, the final sample of which is ready and on a trial basis. However, due to the fact that no news was heard from local digital currencies during this period, it was assumed that the central bank did not give the green light to this technology.
However, the central bank’s policy on dealing with cryptocurrencies now seems to be changing. It seems that Abdul Nasser Hemmati, the governor of the Central Bank, recently wrote on his Instagram about the Central Bank password:
The Central Bank of the Islamic Republic of Iran, by examining the new global trend and focusing on different models, seeks to select the best possible strategy in this area and has prepared the initial version of the comprehensive document on currency code. I have asked my colleagues in the relevant departments of the Central Bank to review the regulations on the issuance of the Central Bank’s monetary code based on the measures taken and to present it for decision-making so that its results can be used in monetary policy.
In this regard, in an interview with ISNA, Azari Jahromi stated that we once started discussing the pursuit of Ramzarz:
During the previous administration of Dr. Seif, the Central Bank was of the opinion that Ramzarz is one of the areas of activity of the Central Bank because it is a kind of currency. We also transferred all the work done in this area to them with the framework in question. They have to move on.
The latest news on this issue was the news of Mr. Hemmati on their Instagram page, who reached conclusions on Ramzarz and gave the latest report. Dr. Hemmati’s message was that the central bank has moved from recognizing cryptocurrencies as a process and technology to recognizing and interacting with cryptocurrencies. This was the most important message of the Governor of the Central Bank in the new era that is happening and moving forward
