The battle for cryptocurrencies has been tumultuous in the country. While digital currencies have no faced an outright ban, they have however been made increasingly difficult to acquire. This is because the central banking system has banned the purchase of them, and that makes it near impossible for citizens of the country to buy and sell their Bitcoin or other cryptos.
Many users have been very unhappy that they were unable to purchase using their bank cards. It seems some of those problems have been eased, and there are a number of exchanges which now allow bank purchases.
India cryptocurrency regulation does not restrict the use of BTC or other cryptocurrencies, but they are also not considered legal tender. The central bank of IN famously issued a banking ban which made it difficult for many users to acquire Bitcoin. However, due to the large number of the country's citizens who do remote work, they've found some more enterprising ways to acquire this currency.
Namely by using their wages earned from Amazon's mechanical Turk to cash out their earnings to BTC with Purse thanks to some help from crypto owners in other countries. The point being, that while the government may hamper the usage of these currencies a bit, they have not removed all methods of entry from the nation.
