India and cryptocurrency share a rocky connection. The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has actually issued a ban on cryptocurrency trading. And complying with that they issued an order guiding banks to quit offering services to crypto exchanges as well as traders. The Indian crypto neighborhood attracted the Supreme Court to grant a stay versus 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 appears crypto exchanges as well as investors are back to fresh start, without financial institution prepared to supply services!
