In the event that the Indian government chooses to propose a restriction on digital forms of money, it needs to concoct a way to repay 7 million individuals who hold resources worth more than $1 billion, believes Nischal Shetty – CEO of one of India’s leading investment platforms WazirX.
The proposal comes at a time when several cryptocurrencies including Bitcoin and Dogecoin have seen a massive surge in their value. Bitcoin has crossed the $50,000 mark for the first time after getting investment from Elon Musk’s Tesla. Shetty said that even WazirX witnessed a rise in sign-ups following Musk’s investment. He said that investors must also understand that cryptocurrencies are high risk investment tools, and they need to do their research before investing.
We realize that the Cryptocurrency and Regulation of Official Digital Currency Bill, 2021 is among the rundown of bills to be introduced in this Parliament meeting. Nonetheless, I need to add that the substance of the bill are not known. I’m hopeful that our administration won’t go for a backward move like an inside and out boycott. According to Mr Anurag Thakur’s assertion in the Parliament, the bill is drawing upon Garg Committee’s IMC report named as “Forbidding of Cryptocurrency and guideline of true computerized cash” in 2019. This has likely been changed to be presently called “Cryptographic money and Regulation of Official Digital Currency Bill, 2021”. It’s intriguing to see that this time around, there’s no notice of a boycott for the sake of the bill. Mr. Thakur has additionally added that they will probably control crypto.
On the off chance that the bill proposes a total prohibition on crypto anyway far-fetched the public authority needs to think of a way to help 7 Million+ individuals who at present hold resources worth $1 Billion+ on the most proficient method to repay them for this. The public authority can’t delete abundance of a particularly huge segment of individuals in India as it would probably prompt a monetary emergency in the country.
