They expressed their concerns regarding the cryptocurrency issue and how it can threaten India’s economic stability.

According to central bank officials, cryptocurrencies have the ability to replace real-world money and can be a medium of exchange in domestic and cross-border financial activities instead. And it will harm the RBI’s system in managing the flow of money.

In the discussion about cryptocurrency effects, the officials stated that it could have a negative effect on the banking system. Because when the public will invest their hard-earned money in the currencies, the bank will not be able to lend money for not having enough resources.
