Cryptocurrencies worse than Ponzi schemes: RBI Deputy Governor


Government’s decision to levy a 30% tax on cryptocurrency gains gave an idea that the government might acknowledge crypto as a legal tender. However, in her post-budget press conference, finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman clarified that the government considers crypto as ‘Digital Assets’ , which shall be taxed from the next financial year.

Recently RBI Deputy Governor T Rabi Sankar expressed his opinions on an outright ban on cryptocurrencies. He stated that there are various reasons to keep cryptocurrencies away from the country’s formal financial system. Mr. Sankar believes that cryptocurrencies have the power to threaten India’s financial sovereignty and make it very prone to exploitation from private corporations/ governments’ who own these currencies.
