Private Cryptocurrencies A Big Threat To Stability, Says RBI Governer
The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has once again warned investors in India about the dangers of private cryptocurrencies. At a press conference on the monetary policy committee’s decision, Shaktikanta Das, the governor of the Reserve Bank of India, declared at a press conference that “cryptocurrencies have no underlying value” (asset). Not even a tulip”.
He was referring to the 17th-century tulip mania in Europe, particularly Holland, which culminated in a horrific crash.
Yet, there are increasing signs of rising acceptance of cryptocurrencies in other parts of the world as well. According to CoinDesk, BlackRock, the world’s largest asset management company, is preparing to give its clients a bitcoin trading service. The asset management firm is in charge of more than $10 trillion in assets.
The company’s comprehensive investment management platform, Aladdin (short for Asset, Liability, Debt, and Derivative Investment Network), is likely to provide crypto trading, according to the report. Many large financial services firms, such as Visa and PayPal, have actually started laying the groundwork for future crypto investments and trading choices available to their clients. In this context, policymakers are also proactively designing frameworks.
