Influencers anticipate conducive regulatory environment for cryptocurrency in India
The proposed ban on private cryptocurrencies in India had triggered panic selling by investors in the last week of November.

“I don’t think, BAN is coming.. India will adopt Crypto with regulations..Now only challenge is the way Babu’s will understand and regulate it.. but complete ban is unlikely now.”
- Ajeet Khurana, Advisor, and former CEO at Zebpay:
“Despite the price-bloodbath today, and the prospect of more FUD (fear, uncertainty, and doubt), my GUESS is that we are not in for a “banning.” Despite stringent controls coming in, the crypto industry in India will eventually see a more enabling policy framework eventually.”
- Lavanya Mohan, Freelance Writer:
“India’s crypto end game increasingly looks like it will mirror China’s – bringing in a digital rupee that employs blockchain while prohibiting private currencies. Hope some middle ground can be achieved!”
