India: dietro il bando si pensa ad una propria moneta cryptografica.

Le brutte notizie per le crypto, questa volta arrivano dall’India

La Reserve Bank of India (RBI), la banca centrale indiana, ha diretto tutte le entità regolamentate, comprese le banche, a non fornire servizi alle imprese che si occupano di criptovalute come bitcoin.

La decisione della RBI nasce con lo scopo dichiarato di proteggere l’interesse dei consumatori e per rallentare il riciclaggio di denaro; questo è quanto si legge in un comunicato emesso dalla stessa RBI ed inoltre è stato annunciata la formazione di un gruppo di studio,  per consigliare il secondo paese più popoloso del mondo, alla possibilità di emettere una propria moneta digitale, sostenuta interamente dallo stato.

L’intera circolare emessa da RBI è integralmente leggibile a questo Link https://www.rbi.org.in/scripts/BS_PressReleaseDisplay.aspx?prid=43574 di assoluto interesse i punti 12 e 13

12. Central Bank Digital Currency

Rapid changes in the landscape of the payments industry along with factors such as emergence of private digital tokens and the rising costs of managing fiat paper/metallic money have led central banks around the world to explore the option of introducing fiat digital currencies. While many central banks are still engaged in the debate, an inter-departmental group has been constituted by the Reserve Bank to study and provide guidance on the desirability and feasibility to introduce a central bank digital currency. The Report will be submitted by end-June 2018.

13. Ring-fencing regulated entities from virtual currencies

Technological innovations, including those underlying virtual currencies, have the potential to improve the efficiency and inclusiveness of the financial system. However, Virtual Currencies (VCs), also variously referred to as crypto currencies and crypto assets, raise concerns of consumer protection, market integrity and money laundering, among others.

Reserve Bank has repeatedly cautioned users, holders and traders of virtual currencies, including Bitcoins, regarding various risks associated in dealing with such virtual currencies. In view of the associated risks, it has been decided that, with immediate effect, entities regulated by RBI shall not deal with or provide services to any individual or business entities dealing with or settling VCs. Regulated entities which already provide such services shall exit the relationship within a specified time. A circular in this regard is being issued separately.

Intanto i volumi sul mercato Locale sono impazziti … ma tutti verso l’alto.

Stau Tuned.
