Cryptocurrency becomes a no-go area for Indian authorities but they are keen to explore its technology — blockchain. In the past, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) Governor Shaktikanta Das and finance minister Nirmala Sithraman have expressed his displeasure about cryptocurrencies. Meanwhile, Das said that while RBI is not very open about cryptocurrencies, it is very much interested in blockchain technology.

Even during the keynote address of the Future of Banking, former RBI deputy governor warned about implementing cryptocurrency.

In order to understand if blockchain can become the backbone of banking in the near future, the fourth session on ‘The Future of Banking’ will be held on March 10 from 3pm onwards.

The panelists for this discussion will be Karthik Iyer, CEO, BlockchainMonk and Ambassador, P2P-Foundation; and Anupam Saraph, innovator and polymath who has been an advisor in governance.
