Farhad Dejpsand, the Minister of Economic Affairs and Finance, said that it was said that Iran had been able to circumvent the sanctions with cryptocurrencies, adding that the illegal extraction of digital currencies should be countered. “We need to move towards a smart economy in order to find a good place in the international economy,” he said.
According to digital currency and to Quoted From ISNA, Farhad Dejpsand at the unveiling ceremony of the capital market regulation test (sandbox) test environment and the Sharif Center for Excellence in Intelligent Economy and Digital Transformation, said:
In the field of smart economics, a number of projects were defined that had to be implemented. During the last two and a half years, important measures were designed and implemented, some of which did not go ahead due to the conditions in line with the plans, and in this regard, the deviation caused by the management was very small.
“We did not know the factors of mutation and development or we could not use them if we knew them,” he said.
We are still talking about e-government and we are behind, but now we have to talk about smart government. If we turned e-commerce into mobile and smart commerce, we could take effective steps despite the barriers to sanctions. In the last two years, the share of e-commerce in GDP has increased 2.4 times.
Dejpsand said that the growth of tax revenues depends on the use of communication technologies and added:
Over the next three to four years, the share of blockchain in GDP will increase. Therefore, in the face of rapid developments in world technologies such as cryptocurrencies, we must actively manage because the opportunity is lost. The more traditional the economy, the higher the percentage of costs, and economics technologies reduce costs by 70%.
By relying on technology, sanctions can be circumvented. Cryptocurrencies have the ability to circumvent sanctions, but illegal extraction must be combated. Let’s move on to adapting ourselves faster to the components of the smart economy. Our country’s capital market has the highest ranking in the world in terms of using technologies.
The Minister of Economy said:
If we want to find a good place in the international economy, we must move towards a smart economy. The law on store terminals should be implemented by the end of the year, and the smart economy should not be forgotten with the change of minister.
The Ministry of Economy is trying to bring the cryptocurrencies to a significant position in the government. The best thing is to deal with them actively and take advantage of them. The economy is now losing ground on cryptocurrencies because we look at it as elimination.
Then, the head of the Stock Exchange and Securities Organization said at the unveiling ceremony of the capital market regulation test (sandbox) environment plan:
A capital market regulatory test environment is one in which an idea is implemented in a supervised environment to provide opportunities for growth and resolution.
Dehghan, stating that he is one of the driving forces of the technology capital market, added:
Now, the concept of regulation in this environment, the government and an organization can no longer regulate, but without optimal participation, regulation can not be done, which we hope to achieve by unveiling this environment today.
