India and also cryptocurrency share a rough connection. The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has issued a restriction on cryptocurrency trading. And also adhering to that they released an order routing banks to quit using services to crypto exchanges as well as investors. The Indian crypto community interested the Supreme Court to grant a stay versus the RBI’s restriction on cryptocurrency. But this was fruitless, as the Supreme Court chose not to stay the RBI’s ban. Now it seems crypto exchanges as well as traders are back to square one, without any financial institution prepared to use services!
