According to a report by ET, government departments in the country were aware and very much in support of the circulated draft. Nischal Shetty, the CEO of WazirX, a Mumbai-based cryptocurrency exchange, in a recent tweet, insisted that regulations in the cryptocurrency sector is important and not a blanket ban which would only stimulate money laundering.

India: Finance Secy claims crypto report is ready; WazirX CEO says it’s ‘too early’ for regulations

India would soon be deciding the fate of cryptocurrencies in the country; Subhash Chandra Garg, the Finance Secretary, said that the report pertaining cryptocurrency regulation was ready and would soon be submitted to the Finance Minister, cited by Business Standard. Garg said: “We will submit it to the finance minister (soon). Of course, once the approval is done, it will be made public.” Subhash Chandra Garg was heading a committee to understand cryptocurrencies and decide regulations for the same. The previous hearing with the Supreme Court on March 29 was supposed to provide the crypto community some clarity on the status of crypto in the country. However, the case was adjourned. As the newly appointed Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharam approves the said document, it will be made public, cited the report. The Chief Executive Officer of WazirX Nischal Shetty added that once the draft becomes public, the government should consider the views of people in the crypto-space. He added: “Inviting the crypto industry for comments on the new draft is very important since crypto is a relatively new field with less domain knowledge in the country.” Even though regulations would ensure the protection of investors from fraudulent activities and help businesses grow, it’s imperative that the regulations are levied over time and not right away, he said. Shetty further added: “I honestly think it’s too early to implement any regulation in this space. Every nation is working with drafts and recommendations with its industry participants. So while the draft is good for the industry, it shouldn’t be implemented without trialing it out in a sandboxed manner.” The Supreme Court of India is scheduled to listen to the ‘Crypto Vs. RBI’ case in July 2019. The post India: Finance Secy claims crypto report is ready; WazirX CEO says it’s ‘too early’ for regulations appeared first on AMBCrypto.

Indian crypto exchange WazirX offers refund on withdrawal fees for users moving from Coindelta

Coindelta joins the list of crypto exchanges shutting down in India, owing to the lack of regulations and the ongoing Reserve Bank of India [RBI] ban on crypto transactions. Coindelta ceased operations on 30 March at 2 pm IST, announcing the same via a blog, “It has been really difficult for us to operate Coindelta exchange for the last 6 months. The curb on the bank accounts by RBI has made us handicapped in order to provide seamless deposit and withdrawal services.” However, the shutdown comes with users having to pay hiked withdrawal fees to withdraw their crypto from Coindelta. This issue of exchanges hiking their withdrawal fees was highlighted previously when Zebpay ceased operations in India and increased withdrawal fees for users. At the time, Bitbns, another prominent exchange, took advantage of the situation and asked Zebpay users to transfer their funds to Bitbns. They were then refunded the withdrawal fees paid to Zebpay. WazirX, a cryptocurrency exchange in India, followed the footsteps of Bitbns and offered Coindelta users to move to WazirX and get a full refund of their withdrawal fees to Coindelta. Nischal Shetty, the founder and CEO of WazirX, announced this through a video and a tweet, “We heard you. Got many messages that withdrawal fees from Coindelta has been increased.

The matter was to be heard on March 29, but was adjourned owing to the government’s request. The new date has not been provided by the court, but the hearing is supposed to take place in the second week of July.
