‘Aiding Gram cryptocurrency constitutes criminal act’

December 31, 2018

TEHRAN – Secretary of Criminal Content Definition Task Force has said any cooperation with Telegram messaging app to launch Gram, the messaging app’s cryptocurrency, in Iran constitutes an action against national security and will be dealt with as a disruption to national economy.

“One of the most important factors in banning Telegram was a sense of serious economic threat from its activities, which was unfortunately marginalized and neglected due to the fuss in the political atmosphere of the country,” Javad Javidnia said, Fars reported on Sunday.

Earlier this year, the Judiciary issued an order to ban Telegram to protect national security.
