Some Suggestions by Attendees
From the meetings currently held, “One feedback that is common is the expression of regret towards RBI’s shadow ban for cryptocurrencies,” Aggarwal informed news.Bitscoins.web. The reserve bank, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI), released a circular in April in 2015 prohibiting banks from supplying services to crypto services. Some banks have also taken actions to close client accounts that reveal indications of cryptocurrency deals.
“Everyone states that [the RBI ban] was a deliberate relocation to eliminate the entire community and they have actually prospered in doing simply that and taking India a minimum of 3-4 years behind in regards to development,” the co-founder remembered. “That has been a real shot in the knees of every team that was doing any sort of work in this space in India. Some even stated that there hasn’t been a single good new project in this space from India after that banking ban took place.”
Aggarwal shared a few of the recommendations made by guests of the occasions held up until now:
Lift the restriction right away, if it continues for over another one year, India would not be taking part in this paradigm shift other than as retail financiers.
He even more detailed: “Some have suggested jurisdictions in forward-looking states like Andhra Pradesh, Telangana or Rajasthan that gives an experimental ground for cryptocurrency companies. If the experiment fails, we can then shut everything down in that jurisdiction, but until then let data suggest the way forward.”
