#IndiaWantsCrypto crosses 1000 days

Chennai: Marking a milestone, the #IndiaWantsCrypto campaign started by Nischal Shetty, founder and CEO, WazirX on 1 November, 2018, has completed 1000 days.

Nischal started the campaign after the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) banned Indian banks
from doing business with crypto exchanges.

Even though the exchange – as a part of the Internet and Mobile Association of India (IAMAI) – was fighting the court case against the RBI in the Supreme Court, Shetty realised that the bigger reason behind the banking ban was the lack of awareness about crypto amongst the masses and regulators, a release said and added that this led him to start the campaign with the objective of spreading the right information about crypto and channelising the crypto community of India to discuss the right regulations.
