A recent report stated that more than 115 million cryptocurrency investors are from India. But, the governor of the RBI (Reserve Bank of India) believes that crypto cannot be fruitful for any economic country, including India.
In a recent interview, the governor of RBI was asked about his views on cryptocurrency. Shaktikanta Das stated that developing economies operate very differently from developed nations. Therefore, the ongoing atmosphere promoting digital assets and the blockchain industry doesn’t apply to India or countries with developing economic stature.
"India near 115 million crypto investors
Governor of #RBI stated that #crypto is not useful for developing economies like India"
Crypto is a big revulsion, will change the economy of the world
Even before the advent of the Internet, people say the same thing, but today is life.

Dollarization isn’t the best thing happening to our economy
Das said that the application of dollarization isn’t the best thing for our country, especially considering the nation’s economic conditions. Since almost every crypto transaction is denominated in dollars, they will not be favourable for nations like India. On the other hand, crypto could prove to be a great opportunity for countries with advanced economic stature.
A recent report, collected from reliable sources, has highlighted the importance of the statement made by the RBI governor. Already, more than 115 million investors from India have become part of the crypto community; more and more people are planning on expanding their future holdings horizons.
In May 2022, the Central Bank of India released a warning against cryptocurrency holdings to the country’s parliament. Stablecoins could very likely unstabilize the economy of India by causing unintentional dollarization.
Although the Central Bank is in favor of investing in the latest fintech opportunities, RBI will have the power to assess all the inclusive risks prevailing in the industry.
