Among speculations on the future of cryptocurrency in India, Finance Secretary T.V. Somanathan, while giving an interview to CNBC TV18, made it clear that “crypto won’t be a legal tender by any means”.

As speculation runs through the market, the industry is not favouring a complete ban on cryptocurrencies. "A complete ban on cryptocurrencies will only give rise to the black market and disintegrate us from the global economy," says Kumar Gaurav, founder and CEO of Cashaa, a crypto exchange.
