Indian Crypto Firms propose policy ideas to government forward of a possible ban
Exchanges containing WazirX, CoinDCX, and others are presenting government officials with their vision for how India should control crypto.

The industry appeal comes as Indian lawmakers float a prospective ban on private cryptocurrencies.
The bundle will be sent to Indian Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, the Department of Economic Affairs, the Reserve Bank of India, and the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology, rendering the report.
The presentation, studied by CoinDesk, says India presently has more than 10 million crypto users, over half-a-million day traders and more than 3,000 people working in the crypto industry.

The exchanges recommended research on potential significance if India bans crypto, proposals on the upcoming regulation, a current code of conduct for crypto exchanges to accept and an overview of crypto regulation practices everywhere in the world.
