Iran Finalizes Pricing for Cryptocurrency Miners
Meanwhile, according to a July 21 report, the Iranian Economic Commission reported a finalized tariff scheme for cryptocurrency miners.
Energy Minister Homayoon Ha’eri was indicating the expected approval from the Cabinet of Iran while the tariff scheme has been finalized.
Previously, the head of Iran Electrical Industry Syndicate, Ali Bakhshi, was proposing a price of $0.07 per kilowatt-hour for cryptocurrency miners.
Due to government subsidies, electricity in Iran is currently very cheap.
With power being cheaper in the agricultural and industrial sectors, a one-kilowatt hour of electricity currently only costs $0.05.
Mostafa Rajabi Mashhadi, the Energy Ministry spokesman for the power department, has put the prices in context. But as previously specified, the making of digital coins uses about $1,400 in state subsidies.
In a news report, mining one Bitcoin allegedly consumes as much electricity as 24 buildings in Tehran do in one year.
