In domestic news, Chief Economic Adviser V Anantha Nageswaran has said crypto and decentralised financial instruments seem to be a case of regulatory arbitrage rather than financial innovation.

"Decentralised finance...I would reserve judgment on whether it is truly innovative, or truly disruptive in a positive sense, or is it something that we would come to regret," he said.

The CEA added, "Much of what is happening in the space of cryptos or decentralised finance – and I completely endorse what Dy RBI Guv Rabi Sankar, has been saying – as of now they do appear to be a case of regulatory arbitrage rather than a case of true financial innovation in my opinion."

Sankar has been critical of private cryptocurrencies over the last year or so and called for more scepticism when it comes to these technologies.

In international news, a senior Bank of Canada official said crypto regulation efforts need to keep pace with market growth.

Noting that the number of Canadians who own crypto assets is growing rapidly and many people may not understand the risk of investing in products like Bitcoin, Bank of Canada Senior Deputy Governor Carolyn Rogers told Reuters.

The issue is growing more pressing as crypto assets become integrated into Canada's financial system, increasing the risk that crypto shocks - like the recent price plunge - could end up hitting the broader financial system.

"This is an area that is still small, but it's growing really rapidly. And it is largely unregulated. We don't want to wait until it gets a lot larger before we bring regulatory controls in place," in an interview.
