The Majlis Economic Commission and the government are collaborating to prepare a comprehensive plan for regulating cryptocurrencies, Mohammad Reza Pourebrahimi, the head of the commission, said. 
"The commission started working on the issue in the past.  However, the former [Rouhani] administration preferred not to get involved," ISNA quoted him as saying.
