Hitting a definitive stop over the looming speculations of cryptocurrency being banned in India, the government clarified that it is not looking to ban cryptocurrencies, but to regulate them as ‘assets’. Reportedly, all Indian crypto exchanges will come under the purview of the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI). Additionally, citizens will no longer be allowed to hold their crypto assets on foreign exchanges or in private wallets, per the cabinet note.

Bitcoin, along with other cryptocurrencies on Saturday, saw a major fall in its market value, in another indication of the risk aversion sweeping across financial markets. The overall crypto sector has shed around a fifth of its value, sliding to $2.2 trillion, according to tracker CoinGecko.
