India as well as cryptocurrency share a rough relationship. The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has actually issued a restriction on cryptocurrency trading. And following that they provided an order directing banks to quit offering services to crypto exchanges and traders. The Indian crypto area interested the Supreme Court to grant a stay against the RBI’s restriction on cryptocurrency. But this was to no avail, as the High court chose not to remain the RBI’s restriction. Currently it appears crypto exchanges and also traders are back to square one, without any financial institution prepared to use services!
