India and also cryptocurrency share a rocky connection. The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has actually released a restriction on cryptocurrency trading. And following that they released an order routing banks to stop using services to crypto exchanges and traders. The Indian crypto area interested the High court to grant a stay versus the RBI’s ban on cryptocurrency. But this was fruitless, as the High court chose not to stay the RBI’s ban. Now it appears crypto exchanges and investors are back to square one, without any bank ready to offer services!
