These days, the debate over the parliament’s plan to regulate digital currencies has become hot. Rafsanjan MP Hossein Jalali, in his latest statement, referring to the various dimensions of digital currencies, predicted that the bill would probably be rejected by parliament.
to the Report Arzdigital, quoting Hossein Jalali, a member of the 11th parliament, said in a recent interview:
The Economic Commission of the Islamic Consultative Assembly has entered into the discussion of digital currencies, but the issue of cryptocurrencies is a vague one for the Assembly and most experts. We are worried that it will become a stock market issue and cause problems for the people. As a result, it seems wrong to agree to cryptographic permissions. If the Islamic Consultative Assembly approves the plan, it has made a big mistake. People will have problems in the future.
Proponents of cryptocurrency legislation argue that the issue of digital currencies should be made public in order to get out of the underground. By doing so, we can tax digital currencies, but the problem of digital currencies being underground is not something that cannot be observed. The industry consumes a lot of electricity and it is easy to monitor electricity consumption. As a result, legal permission should not be granted for these issues. Digital currencies do not create employment or a dynamic economy for the country.
Most members of parliament oppose the introduction of digital currencies. Basically, we have a problem with discussing cryptocurrencies, our only problem is not knowing the origin and destination of cryptocurrencies. Many religious issues are not observed in cryptocurrencies. No action should be taken to regulate digital currencies at this time. Whenever all aspects of the issue are clarified, then we must seek to legislate. It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post. Must be fully specified. There are black, white, zero and one hundred comments in this area.
The MP emphasized:
Exchange offices still face problems in converting digital currencies, so stimulating people to enter this market can create conditions similar to the stock market, and we can see losses in this area.
The representative of the people of Rafsanjan continued:
The issue of digital currency extraction in Rafsanjan is still unclear, we have the largest digital currency extraction farm in Rafsanjan. Many believe that this farm belongs to the Chinese. On the other hand, many claim to have partnered with the Chinese. There are even rumors that these farms are covered so that stakeholders can work in this area, such as nobles and officials, but because it is not a problem for them, they say that the Chinese are active in the area.
Jalali pointed out:
There is a lot of capital accumulated in this area and there are many miners. Due to the electricity problem, they were not allowed to extract until October, but after solving the electrical problems, the extraction permit was issued again. If miners in Iran use electricity at a commercial price, it is still profitable for them. The electricity consumption of this industry is high and energy is expensive in the world. If the mining industry works only three months a year, they will make a good income.
Rafsanjan farms are large and unfortunately licensed legally. They have received a legal license from the Samat Keshvar Organization, and large investments are present there.
The MP concluded:
The government needs to clear up ambiguities in the field of digital currencies and make them more transparent. If the Ministry of Silence gives permission, legal work has been done and they should not be stopped during the power outage. Dualism and multiplicity in this area must be eliminated. The duality has caused ambiguity. If the permit is issued, the government must support it. The Economic Commission seems to agree with the plan, but the general atmosphere of the parliament does not agree with the plan and will probably be rejected.
