Great step by the government towards a total ban of virtual private currencies
There are many false narratives that we should not be left behind in the technology revolution etc. all meant to put the government on the defensive. This is totally untrue. Cryptocurrencies are not the only use of blockchain technology. Government and private organisations can use this technology wherever there is a case for decentralised record keeping. The problems of losing one's crypto wallet by hacking, hardware failures and accidental erasures are just being glossed over. Only rosy pictures of multi-fold returns are being projected without mentioning the risks. People who say that cryptocurrency should not be banned but only regulated will be the first to break the regulations through loopholes if such regulations are brought. That is why a total ban is necessary.
Another common claim is that even countries have recognised Bitcoin as valid currency. The only country which did that is El Salvador a couple of months back. I do not know how many of those who talk about this even can point the country on the world map. I had to search for it. Some interesting facts.
This Central American country has a population which is much lower than most of our metros.
The country has NO CURRENCY OF ITS OWN. The currency which they had earlier is now defunct. So the country uses the currency of the neighboring USA as its own.
Can you imagine India doing that? more
