The events after the launch of Coinbase exchange in India have spelled trouble for all Indian exchanges. For starters, UPI has been withdrawn as an option to buy cryptocurrencies to avoid NPCI’s wrath. Moreover, the other convenient mode of deposit, MobiKwik, has also suspended its services across all crypto exchanges in India.
All these factors, coupled with the recently imposed 30 per cent tax on gains from virtual digital assets, which include cryptocurrencies, have caused a steep plunge in the trading volumes of cryptocurrency exchanges in India.
