India as well as cryptocurrency share a rocky connection. The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has provided a ban on cryptocurrency trading. And adhering to that they issued an order guiding banks to stop supplying services to crypto exchanges and also investors. The Indian crypto community appealed to the High court to grant a stay against the RBI’s restriction on cryptocurrency. But this was fruitless, as the High court chose not to stay the RBI’s restriction. Currently it appears crypto exchanges and also traders are back to square one, with no financial institution prepared to use services!
