Regulating Cryptocurrencies

Not too long ago when rumours were circulating "the Chinese" are mining bitcoin in massive farms in Iran, the Energy Ministry's response was not to deny but only to comment "at three hundred mega watts, it's only a fraction of total electricity use."

Cyrptocurrencies provided some relief to the government, who allegedly used it not only for profit but to help going around the sanctions' wall.

But that era of enthusiasm is nearing an end —for the private player. Both the Central Bank and the parliament, citing laws and regulations that are not there yet, are strongly signalling they are to crack down on cryptos. Recently they put a semi-official ban on advertising any related businesses, but that is just the tip of the iceberg.

There are a few reasons the state would go for strict regulations. For one, money laundering is an issue. There is also the matter of foreign fiat currency reserves and unsactioned cross-border money transfers. Given the recent economic shocks, the Central Bank needs to govern the circulation to ration resources —not that it has been flawlessly innocent though. But then this reason is short-lived and instead there are taxes to be had. There is also the traditionally Iranian state's tendency to control: just like in the Tehran Stock Exchange or fiat foreign currency exchanges or cross border trade, this is an area the state prefers to have the infrastructure so, without any constraints, it can intervene, direct, control, set the rules and decide the players. And then there is the social order. The cryptocurrencies have been generating income for an estimated million people in Iran. While taxing that income is in the pipeline, at a more fundamental level, that is disturbing the state's preferences for wealth distribution.

But the more critical perspective is that currently Iranian cryptocurrency exchanges are connected to the global marketplace uninhibitedly and prices are determined by not only the Iranian players but mostly the global free flow. This is against the state's preference for a closed system and we could expect the government will set caps on exchanges with the distributed ledgers, e.g. quotas on how much cryptocurrency each exchange can trade on any given day --and it will parade this initiative instead as regulatory mechanisms to safeguard people's interests.

As for the mechanisms, ICT regulations in Iran closely follow those in the US. With the recent talks in the Congress and SEC to rein in cryptocurrencies and trading, we could expect some of the approaches adopted by the US government will almost immediately be adopted in Tehran as well.

We could also expect few select players to be handpicked and supported to sway control over the majority of the market. Avenues like Nobitex, if they are not already part of IRGC or under the protection of another major player, will soon find themselves yielding to a superior.
