Bitcoin and Crypto Speculation in Finance Ministry and Reserve Bank of India

Well, these encouraging words just come at a time when the crypto-interdiction has been repeatedly reported in India. In recent months, India’s central bank – the  Reserve Bank of India(RBI) – hinted at a crypto-ban.

For the Indian crypto community, this is a very good statement, which was looking forward to a positive development in this area. Furthermore, the statements of the Indian Finance Minister come when Bitcoin (BTC) reaches a $61k all-time high.

The fintech developments in India are further recognised by Sitharaman. She said blockchain technology is the backbone of FinTech and cryptography and therefore the window for some experiments should be available.

The Finance Minister added:

From our (the finance ministry’s) side we are very clear that we are not shutting all options. We will allow a certain window for people to do experiments on blockchain, bitcoins, or cryptocurrency. We are not going to shut it off all
