India wants crypto

This is coming at a time where proposals have been made to ban private cryptocurrencies in the country. The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has issued several warnings that cryptos can undermine the financial stability of the economy. Exchanges and crypto-related companies in the country seek regulation of digital currencies rather than banning them.
