Tapping into the Gram cryptocurrency offered by the instant messaging app Telegram by Iranians is considered a “redline” in the eyes of the High Council of Cyberspace, the country’s watchdog and regulator of online activities.
This was announced by HCC Secretary Abolhassan Firouzabadi who happens to a staunch detractor of the platform that boasts some 40 million Iranians among its subscribers. 
“Offering digital currencies by Telegram and providing non-traditional services that don’t exist in other major social media networks in the world are considered a redline of the country’s cyberspace for protecting the security of the people,” the official said during a late-night TV interview on Monday.
“If the trend of Telegram’s activities continues under such circumstances, officials must react,” he added.
