Crypto News – In a recent announcement reported by CoinDesk, India’s stance on cryptocurrencies is set to take shape in the coming months, according to a senior official from the Finance Ministry. India, which currently ranks among the less cryptocurrency-friendly regions globally, is gearing up to leverage insights gleaned from the G20’s efforts in developing a cryptocurrency risk assessment framework to formulate its own regulatory policies.

Ajay Seth, the Secretary of the Department of Economic Affairs, made this revelation during the G20 leaders’ summit, stating that “India’s definitive position will be determined in the ensuing months.”

India’s approach to cryptocurrencies has been under scrutiny for several years, marred by a series of challenges, including high taxation, a downturn in the cryptocurrency market, the imposition of a “shadow ban,” anti-money laundering regulations, and enforcement actions taken against prominent cryptocurrency exchanges.

This scrutiny intensified after India took a proactive stance in shaping global cryptocurrency regulations during its G20 presidency. This goal culminated in the release of a “synthesis paper” jointly presented by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the Financial Stability Board (FSB).

In a notable development, India’s Finance Minister announced just last month that G20 member nations had given their official endorsement to the recommendations put forth by the Financial Stability Board concerning cryptocurrency assets and stablecoins.

This endorsement underscores the growing consensus among G20 nations regarding the imperative need to address the challenges posed by cryptocurrency assets comprehensively. It signifies a significant step toward the establishment of a robust, internationally coordinated regulatory framework aimed at ensuring the stability and integrity of financial markets on a global scale.
