India and also cryptocurrency share a rocky connection. The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has actually issued a restriction on cryptocurrency trading. And adhering to that they issued an order guiding banks to stop using services to crypto exchanges and also investors. The Indian crypto area attracted the Supreme Court to grant a stay against the RBI’s restriction on cryptocurrency. Yet this was fruitless, as the Supreme Court chose not to stay the RBI’s restriction. Now it seems crypto exchanges and also investors are back to square one, without any bank all set to use solutions!
