The new regulation can provide a template for cryptocurrency standards in India. The regulatory landscape has mostly been vacant after the Supreme Court subdue a Reserve Bank of India ban on crypto-related cost in March 2020 


A fresh set of concepts projected by the US Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (Fincen) calls for US exchanges to study transfers of cryptocurrency such as Bitcoin above $10,000 to non-custodial? notecase to Fincen.?
