India: Government Panel Not In Favour Of Banning Cryptocurrency

in #india3 years ago

A panel setup by the Indian government to research into cryptocurrencies doesn't seem to be in favour of banning it according to the tweet by Economic Times.


Frankly, regulation is what India needs to grow it's cryptocurrency sector. The clampdown on cryptocurrencies have been due to several ponzi scams taking place and RBI's mandate has certainly thwarted many new ponzi scams from taking place.

However, it has also shrunk the market size for cryptocurrency in India by a large amount. This is mostly due to the FUD associated with such a move. However, with regulation we're likely to see a growth in this sector.

At this point though things are still uncertain. Economic Times is a major daily in the country and we're not sure of their source. But the fact is that government is likely to loose out by not regulating this market.

While I'm not a big fan of government regulating everything, having certain parameters in place for smooth and legal operations of cryptocurrency exchanges will benefit everyone. Many naive investors have jumped on the Bitcoin bandwagon by believing ponzi scheme peddlers selling get-quick-rich schemes.

Regulations might allow exchanges to continue their marketing efforts and also allow them to educate their customers on the correct ways of speculating in cryptocurrencies.

I look forward to some solid updates on this matter in the weeks to come. Stay tuned.

Hope this will be done by Indian govt. If this happens, this is very good for all steemians and crypto user/trader.
We all waiting for any solid update from market and you.

I can't believe how low alts are now, many of them have lost all the gains they'd made since last year, which is unbelievable when you think of it.

You are right sir, there is great profit in cryptocurrency and this should be developed all over the world and also, the belief of everything being a ponzi scheme from cryptocurrency to investments and all that, the sector of cryto currency needs to stop being speculated about and start being classified into legit investment that is worth the time and risk, quit a lot of people think and have the belief that crypt currencies is just another way to scam and that belief needs and must be eradicated so as to ensure progress and proper development in the sector.

A ray of hope. Brilliant! indeed a great post for an Indian. Cheers!

India is full of millennials that would one hold the wealth of nation. This age group is the one that is the most excited about cryptocurrencies and that is why countries with younger demographics can be so very important for the crypto market.

On one hand it understandable that RBI would take steps to suppress scams but on the other hand the hurt produced on the crypto market is unjustified. Sooner or later they would need to understand that if they don't take the initiative like Japan and Korea, they are going to miss this historic ride.

Thanks for sharing the info @firepower

yes, it's a good news,I also read the news and also your article. the panel formed by the govt. may give a decision in support of allowing cryptocurrency in India. Thank you for sharing the article.

@firepower, as cryptos become more widespread, governments will sofen their regulation towards cryptos. In a more distant future, different governments will even compete in trying to attract crypto investments :)

What an important subject, thanks @firepower!

Maybe the focus should not be talking about "regulating crypto".

Maybe the focus should rather be on regulating Ponzis and other forms of exploitation in the monetary world as a whole.

Maybe Cryptos should rather just be welcomed into this arena an improvement on the existing monetary system.

Exploiting the weaknesses of one's fellow beings is a disease in its own right, that has absolutely nothing to do with what cryptocurrency is all about.

On the contrary, proper application of cryptocurrencies is a form of defense against improper corruption of the freedom and security of everyone.

It can be banned finally some positive words from indian government.

Good news.
Indian government has set up a panel to research into cryptocurrencies which don't seem to be in favor of banning of cryptocurrencies. This might educate customers on the correct ways of speculating in cryptocurrencies.
