India as well as cryptocurrency share a rocky partnership. The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has released a ban on cryptocurrency trading. And complying with that they issued an order guiding financial institutions to stop supplying solutions to crypto exchanges and investors. The Indian crypto neighborhood attracted the High court to grant a stay versus the RBI’s ban on cryptocurrency. But this was fruitless, as the Supreme Court refused to remain the RBI’s ban. Currently it seems crypto exchanges and traders are back to fresh start, with no financial institution ready to offer services!
