RBI concern over Bitcoin
On December 5, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) reiterated its concerns about Bitcoins, whose values have turned volatile recently.
RBI has clearly stated that those trading in Virtual Currencies (VCs) were doing so at their own risk, given that the central bank has not given a licence or authorisation for any company to deal in such cryptocurrencies.
The central bank had said in a December 24, 2013, note:
There is no underlying or backing of any asset for VCs. As such, their value seems to be a matter of speculation. Huge volatility in the value of VCs has been noticed in the recent past. Thus, the users are exposed to potential losses on account of such volatility in value.
Bitcoin values in New York, for instance, have soared nearly 1,600 per cent in 2016 and currently range upwards of 15,000. In India, bitcoins have been trading at more than 10 lakh each, while people are investing amounts ranging from 3,000 to several lakhs to buy these.
It is an open payment platform and decentralized exchange issued on all crypto exchange
- Slogan: Unbank the Banked
