Azari-Jahromi is the youngest minister in the country. He is in favour of innovation. The research department of the ministry of ICT as well as the research institute of financial and monetary of the central bank have worked together to review and develop a legal framework for crypto-currencies. This decision would have been taken in order to escape the economic sanctions of the european Union and the United States.
Ban the iranian central bank
Concerning the prohibition of the central bank of the country on the subject of digital currencies, Azari-Jahromi stated that this position would not impact on the development of this crypto-currency. According to the minister of ICT, crypto-currencies can change the model of financial exchange in the country.
Azari-Jahromi stated that this prohibition does not mean the restriction of the use of virtual currency for the economic development of the country. This initiative will enable Iran to cope with the new set of economic sanctions of the EU and the United States.
