India and cryptocurrency share a rough connection. The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has issued a ban on cryptocurrency trading. And following that they provided an order directing financial institutions to stop supplying services to crypto exchanges and also traders. The Indian crypto neighborhood interested the High court to grant a stay versus the RBI’s restriction on cryptocurrency. But this was to no avail, as the High court chose not to stay the RBI’s restriction. Now it seems crypto exchanges as well as traders are back to fresh start, with no bank all set to provide services!
