In the case of domestically extracted cryptocurrencies, the task is clear and can be used to import goods.
Regarding the management and regulation of exchanges of other digital currencies, the highest official of the Central Bank reminded:
The management and regulation of exchanges of other cryptocurrencies requires a comprehensive, comprehensive and coherent review, and I believe that the necessary coordination between all actors and stakeholders must be established before any negative action or even facilitation.

Contrary to rumors and published news, the Central Bank has not been passive in this area and in order to draw a comprehensive plan for the management of the current space, while consulting with various areas of government and the government to explain the country’s strategy in the face of cryptocurrencies, We have cooperated with the National Cyberspace Center and we hope to create optimal conditions for our dear country by creating the same intellectual and mental model in the executive and legislative body of the country, and in this way the role of the parliament in regulating the relevant laws is very important.
