Now what’s going on in India is the true definition of FUD. I don’t mind banning crypto where transactions are hard to trace at all.

But everything else including meme tokens on public blockchains should stay. If by any chance the ban is worse than we all thought .. I will still be holding on to my crypto to buy digital assets in future. It’s still not all lost 🙂

Mc= most cute government will ban soon life in india

India will never ban crypto, as most of the politicians money is in this. Govt is churning money out of crypto. How they do is this way..
They say its not legal and going to ban.. there’s a panic sell and all crypto goes down . Govt gets a chance to buy at lowest rate. Later for few years they dnt say anything until its back at highest peak. Remember the first dip in 2017-2018.
Same is happening now.

Think again if they are trying to ban and say its not a legal tender how come they allow the trading platforms to advertise on television ads.🤭

The definition of private tokens told here is not even one percent of what it actually is. Just saying it is anonymous doesn’t tell why government wants to ban it.

In Simple Words :-

First thing to know private tokens or Cryptocurrency in general is not tied to border limits i.e Cryotocurrency is a global market, if one country bans it that almost doesn’t matter at all as activity just shifts elsewhere.

Now Coming to Private coins :-

What’s make them private??

- Nobody Knows the source of these coins as these are bought using Decentralised and P2P exchanges (Disposable E-mails, No KYC, VPN/Proxy/Tor).
- Nobody Knows the amount of Funds as that’s the function of these coins i.e hiding addresses.
- Nobody Knows To Whom The Funds are being sent You are only left with public address of these coins and you can’t do anything with that as the real operation is going in the blockchain of these coins.

That’s the beauty of these coins. And that’s the only reason government want to ban them as :-

- Governments can’t have control over it’s citizens
- Money Laundering at its best , Government can’t tax as the source of these token is already anonymous and the person is anonymous and the coin is anonymous lol.
- Criminals can do illegal activities without getting traced.

In my opinion government won’t be able to put a complete ban on it but they can surely prevent it for mass adoption. It looks futile effort to me as the biggest criminal currency is still cash and by banning Cryptocurrency (Which is not even sure that they are banning) India might lose big in coming years. wink

I think government is not to ban crypto but to comes with new guidelines.please don’t panic to sell or buy crypto.

If India doesnot embrace Cryptos soon then it will be too late when the world would have embraced it.In stead of begging in streets and doing robbery these low income groups can make living for themselves.After all Indians can bring in foreign currency which is good.
