India as well as cryptocurrency share a rocky partnership. The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has issued a restriction on cryptocurrency trading. And complying with that they provided an order routing financial institutions to stop offering solutions to crypto exchanges as well as investors. The Indian crypto community appealed to the High court to grant a stay versus the RBI’s ban on cryptocurrency. Yet this was to no avail, as the High court chose not to stay the RBI’s restriction. Currently it appears crypto exchanges and investors are back to square one, without any financial institution all set to provide solutions!
