Apparently India is set to followfollowing the example of China - ban cryptocurrencies, but accept blockchain. Next year, a hearing will take place regarding the ban on banking services for cryptocurrency companies, which was introduced a year and a half ago. But perhaps India will completely ban the use of cryptocurrencies.
