The miners play a vital role in the crypto market and due to this, the security of the cryptocurrency is assured. Recently, mining operations came into the sight of governments and they started imposing a ban. China was the number 1 miner in the world and they almost shut down all of the mining operations. Iran crypto miners also faced these bans.

Hassan Rouhani, former supreme leader of Iran imposed a ban to avoid power blackout in the summer and to normal the increasing frustration due to power shortages in the masses. The licenses issued from the Ministry of Industry were 30. The unlicensed crypto miners were consuming 2000-3000 MW daily.
The unlicensed miners were the main reason for the ban on the Iran crypto miners. According to the Tavanir 212,313 mining rigs were seized in the last 12 months which were seized from the unlicensed miners. 180 trillion rials was the damaged caused buy these unlicensed miners to the Iran.
For one kilowatt-hour of energy the terrify was set 16,574 rials for the crypto miners. The terrif is cut to half in case of the less load on power grid. This terrif by the government is four times the previous terrif of 4800 per kilowatt-hour.
