India will decide on implementing cryptocurrency regulations after extensive discussions with other countries, a senior official said on Sunday, virtually ruling out a ban on such assets.
“The G20 Leaders have welcomed the IMF-FSB Synthesis paper. We expect a lot more discussion on how to implement the regulations faster.
The foundation is ready and we can take it forward,” a sen-or finance ministry official said.
He further noted that the discussions will have to be taken beyond the G20 to other countries and then there would have to be internal discussions in India, as well.
“We don’t see it as a binary of ban versus regulations.
There are a set of recommen-dations. If any country wants to ban it, it can. But if the rest of the countries don’t ban it, then that ban will not work.
Discussions would now place take on cryptocurrency regulations and how far to take it.
