Crypto mining with Azure is restricted on certain subscriptions types, including the Azure Free Account and the Azure for Students account.

Please check Azure Legal Information here in this link - https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/support/legal/

However, on Pay-as-you-go subscription type it does not currently have any terms that prohibit cryptocurrency mining.
