As India deliberates on implementing crypto regulations amidst the winter session of the parliament, Singapore-based virtual currency exchange Coinstore has launched its web and app platforms in India, along with planning branches in Bangalore, New Delhi and Mumbai.

While various media outlets have reported that the legislation effectively plans to bar all private cryptocurrencies, India will have to also align with the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) guidelines that were issued last month with regards virtual assets (cryptocurrencies) and virtual asset providers (cryptocurrency exchanges), in a bid to build a coordinated effort towards countering money laundering and terrorism. The countries will be evaluated on the revised metrics, incorporating their performance in this space as well.
