Finally there’s some good news for the Indian cryptocurrency ecosystem—and this one’s from a global financial body.
An inter-governmental body that makes recommendations about the health of the world economy has said that virtual currencies are not a threat.
The observation was made by the Financial Stability Board (FSB), which counts over 20 countries as its members, including the US, UK, China, and India. The assessment came to light after India’s central bank, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI), quoted the agency in a report released last week. ”The FSB has undertaken a review of the financial stability risks posed by the rapid growth of crypto-assets. Its initial assessment is that crypto-assets do not pose risks to global financial stability currently,” the RBI report said.
