Crypto Community in Panic
The unfortunate news of crypto Prohibition in India has devised a panic within the crypto community.

Was the Ban planned in 2018?
In 2018, India’s central bank had effectively banned the crypto transactions after they observed a series of frauds and scams related to money laundering. Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi also stated the cons and gave a decision for banks to halt all crypto activities in the country. Since then, the crypto ecosystem in India has not flourished. But the cherry on top is Indian Parliament’s proposed bill stating the ban of private crypto countrywide!
The Reserve Bank of India seems to explore possibilities of digital currency!
