? Cool Title, but what’s the news?
Today is the last day to monetise your cryptocurrency investment in India as all the banks and financial entities will stop operating accounts linked to virtual currencies from tomorrow.
? Okay, but what does it mean?
? Why should I care?
Investors would only be able to do peer-to-peer (P2P) transactions with a fellow trader. If you are still invested in any cryptocurrency you won’t be able to transfer the money in your bank account after midnight. Besides peer-to-peer exchanges, some exchanges many also provide alternatives solutions like buying bitcoin in other currency like dollar through Paypal.
Any prospective bitcoin buyer in India will now have to buy it from peers, presumably after paying a premium over the current exchange rate.
