Matthias Nemack –
India’s economy is actually considered to be quite progressive. A number of banks, a crypto threatens customers, but now-ban. Reason is a requirement of the Central Bank.
Central Bank says banks, cryptographic activities
In the case of crypto-currencies, such as the new requirements of the Indian Reserve Bank of India can, unfortunately, recognize, the country is rather backward. The banks are reacting very obedient on a new instruction of the Central Bank of India, as the following Details show. The Central Bank of the large country has issued a Revision of its guidelines for the regulation of the domestic banking sector is a clear prohibition. Problems, it had already in the spring of 2018 between the Central Bank and crypto exchanges.
Banks, for their part, customers in the duty
The banks and regulated financial service providers are allowed to submit their customers, with immediate effect, no quotes from the sector of the crypto-currencies. Means: does not have a direct investment in Ethereum or Ripple, nor recommendations to deposits in products such as the increasingly discussed Bitcoin ETFs are available in the future is permissible, and could even have consequences. As these measures by the Central Bank could look like, so far there has been no information. As the banking industry is responding, on the other hand is well known. In at least some banks of obedience prevails. The “black Peter”, so to speak, to your customer.

From a “both … and … also …” is for customers with an “either … or …” if customers have to the classic products and the crypto market are equally of interest. Hopefully the example makes more school and also in the other States. However, it is unclear what the consequences would have been a violation of the requirements for the customer. Possibly enough the signature of the banks alone as a hedge.
