India as well as cryptocurrency share a rough relationship. The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has released a restriction on cryptocurrency trading. And following that they issued an order directing banks to quit providing services to crypto exchanges and investors. The Indian crypto neighborhood interested the Supreme Court to grant a stay versus the RBI’s restriction on cryptocurrency. However this was fruitless, as the Supreme Court chose not to remain the RBI’s restriction. Now it seems crypto exchanges and traders are back to fresh start, with no bank ready to supply services!
