India and cryptocurrency share a rocky partnership. The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has issued a ban on cryptocurrency trading. And following that they issued an order directing financial institutions to quit providing solutions to crypto exchanges and investors. The Indian crypto area appealed to the High court to grant a stay versus the RBI’s ban on cryptocurrency. However this was to no avail, as the Supreme Court chose not to stay the RBI’s ban. Now it seems crypto exchanges and also investors are back to square one, without financial institution prepared to offer solutions!
