Not very good relations with cryptocurrency markets government of india, according to a planned bill, it looks like it will decide to ban cryptocurrencies, including crypto assets such as Bitcoin and Ethereum. The government plans to take this decision so that cryptocurrencies, which it sees as a great risk due to the volatility of cryptocurrencies, do not harm its citizens.

The ban that will be introduced seems to herald the digital currency (CBDC) to be issued by the Reserve Bank of India. According to media claims, this CBDC is expected to hit the markets by 2022.
The press does not seem to have been ‘shocked’ by this news from India because the attitude of the Indian government towards ‘crypto-assets’ was already well known. On the other hand, crypto money markets do not seem to have reacted very clearly to this news yet.
According to a report by U.Today, a government source told Reuters last week that the government will ban all cryptocurrencies without approval.
After the relevant ban, any crypto assets not approved by the Indian government cannot be traded, sold, stored, otherwise it will be considered a criminal offence.
But earlier this November, the Economic Times reported that cryptocurrencies will only be banned as a means of payment in India. As it is known, a similar move had come from our country before.
