India and cryptocurrency share a rocky partnership. The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has actually provided a restriction on cryptocurrency trading. As well as adhering to that they issued an order directing financial institutions to stop using solutions to crypto exchanges and investors. The Indian crypto community attracted the High court to grant a stay against the RBI’s restriction on cryptocurrency. But this was to no avail, as the High court refused to stay the RBI’s ban. Currently it appears crypto exchanges and also investors are back to fresh start, with no financial institution ready to provide services!
