India and cryptocurrency share a rocky partnership. The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has actually issued a restriction on cryptocurrency trading. And following that they released an order routing banks to quit providing services to crypto exchanges and traders. The Indian crypto neighborhood attracted the Supreme Court to grant a stay against the RBI’s ban on cryptocurrency. But this was to no avail, as the Supreme Court refused to remain the RBI’s restriction. Currently it seems crypto exchanges as well as traders are back to square one, without bank ready to offer services!
