Blockchained India takes a leap for India’s Blockchain Space

Blockchain and Cryptocurrency are still confused terms in India, but it’s enthusiasts are seen to be solving the jigsaw puzzle one step at a time. One such Blockchain group in India, Blockchained India is taking the forefront in terms of the most vital topic – regulations.

Aggarwal is examining real-time use cases related to the blockchain ecosystem in Switzerland , in order to showcase and include it in India’s Blockchain friendly draft report.

India’s Much Needed Step for Blockchain

The Indian government’s confused state of what Blockchain is, and not understanding the technology behind it has left the Blockchain and Crypto enthusiasts of the country taking matters in their own hands.

Akshay Aggarwal highlighted in a previous article about the enthusiasm about Blockchain in India. Aggarwal said, “We have found Delhi and Bangalore to be the most mature ecosystems. The enthusiasm, especially in Delhi, is another level altogether. Though when you look specifically at enterprise blockchains, Hyderabad comes quite close to Bangalore. This is due to the initiative of the Telangana government to form a blockchain district.”

India Losing Opportunities in Crypto Space

If India’s government keeps a closed mind on fintech in terms of cryptocurrency, they will lose out on plenty of long term opportunities. Many countries are already sensing India’s scope and have invited Indian companies to partake in their cryptocurrency spaces.

The Central Bank of Bahrain for example have invited Indian firms, to explore fintech opportunities in the space of Blockchain and Cryptocurrency. Along with this the EDB which is the investment promotion arm of Bahrain has already signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with one of the states in India which is the Maharashtra state’s government to provide a framework for co-operation in the fintech field.

India’s decision on cryptocurrency and the final cryptocurrency regulations is quite an important chapter of Cryptocurrency mass adoption given that India has a growing population of over 1.3 billion.
