India as well as cryptocurrency share a rocky connection. The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has actually provided a ban on cryptocurrency trading. And following that they provided an order directing banks to quit supplying services to crypto exchanges as well as investors. The Indian crypto community interested the High court to grant a stay against the RBI’s ban on cryptocurrency. However this was fruitless, as the High court refused to remain the RBI’s ban. Currently it appears crypto exchanges and also traders are back to square one, without financial institution ready to offer solutions!
