Indian Government Looking To Ban Crypto
Ever since the Indian supreme court removed the ban from the crypto sector, India’s ties with the crypto market are quite complicated. The Central Bank of India and major ministers have taken a stand against cryptocurrencies and going to restrict crypto activities in the country.
There are now reports that Indian legislators are actively working on a cryptocurrency draft bill entitled “Banning of Cryptocurrency and Regulation of Official Digital Currency Bill, 2019.”
Jay Hao, CEO of OKEx, stated that the firm had been investigating the Indian crypto market for a long time. He said:
“We are willing to support our Indian partners and are hopeful that we can work with regulators to clarify their main doubts and issues with cryptocurrencies and help build a framework that allows this booming industry to continue to flourish.”
