Central Bank of India unofficially urges banks to stop cooperation with crypto projects

The central bank of India is unofficially trying to urge banks to stop cooperating with cryptocurrency projects, in particular with traders and exchanges. As stated by three anonymous sources at once, the regulator is concerned about the serious growth of the speculative market.

“The regulator has been unofficially asking us that why are we dealing in such business when it is ultra speculative. A lot of money flows overseas via this trade which the RBI is not comfortable with as it may lead to money laundering, “ said a senior executive of the bank, which the Central Bank of India had contacted.

According to Reuters, many new users are being introduced into the cryptocurrency space every day amid the active growth of the market. According to experts, there are about 10 million cryptocurrency investors in India.
