India and also cryptocurrency share a rough relationship. The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has issued a ban on cryptocurrency trading. As well as complying with that they released an order guiding financial institutions to stop providing services to crypto exchanges and investors. The Indian crypto neighborhood attracted the High court to grant a stay against the RBI’s restriction on cryptocurrency. But this was to no avail, as the Supreme Court refused to remain the RBI’s ban.
