The Apex court of India upheld the ban imposed by Reserve Bank of India on Cryptocurrency

The supreme court refused to provide interim relief to investors affected by the decision of RBI to stop all dealing in Cryptocurrency by RBI regulated institutions
The Supreme Court has hence once more declined to remain RBI’s April 6 roundabout, which had guided all banks to separate themselves from existing associations with crypto trades and dealers inside three months, because of produce results July sixth.
The national bank’s dubious bar has provoked both open and industry-drove petitions, with some speaking to the courts in light of the fact that the choice is unlawful.
The Internet and Mobile Association of India (IAMAI), which considers its individuals a few of the crypto trades testing RBI’s position, asked for the present early hearing at the Supreme Court. The court had set an underlying date of July 20, two weeks after the boycott will have produced results.
At a past appeal to hearing on May 17, IAMAI was apparently asked for to present a portrayal against the national bank. Nischal Shetty, CEO of crypto trade WazirX, is cited by Quartz India saying:
“We had submitted a detailed presentation that could have given RBI a clearer picture on what is blockchain, how the exchanges work, etc. But we hadn’t heard back from them yet. Today, the supreme court has also directed the RBI to respond to those representations made by the firms in the next seven days.”
A Twitter post from a team of Indian lawyers involved in crypto regulatory analysis confirms that the Supreme Court has today directed RBI “to respond with reasons” to the IAMAI’s representation. The Supreme Court will hear existing petitions at the aforementioned July 20 hearing.
Notwithstanding its hardline stance against decentralized cryptocurrencies, RBI is said to be considering issuing its own central bank digital currency (CBDC).
Some remain optimistic about the country’s future in crypto, with Ripple (XRP)’s global head of infrastructure innovation saying earlier this month that he expects a positive regulatory framework to be forthcoming from RBI in the longer term.
