CryptocurrencyCryptocurrencies- Web 3.0 Version

December 20, 20210

Little has been legitimately aired but much more has been rumored rather.


The bill proposals are yet to be finalized and are awaited to be enforced by law.

But the moot question is whether to “ban” or “regulate” Crypto while maintaining a strict no to the usage of “Crypto as a Currency”. The concern and journey of resistance is already known to the public at large.


As an asset, the quantum of tax with the exchequer will be hefty. Hence the explorations and possibility to treat it as an asset class cannot be ruled out.


Further, wallets like TrustWallet which work without even a KYC can be restricted. Metamask can also be under the scanner.

A transfer of crypto or funds from one exchange to another, due to an affiliation between an Indian and foreign exchange, can also be fixed.


The legal compliances by way of KYC, tax implications and scenarios of FEMA violation besides being used by anti-social elements had been a concern.


Perhaps the solution is structural regulation of Crypto since a big decision, if taken, to remain outside the realm of the ecosystem of Web 3.0 can lag other developments and the new world of blockchain.

A school of thought is that “Crypto” cannot be avoided or tarnished in this world but can only be regulated especially when “Metaverse” is on the verge of seeing the daylight and “Facebook” has renamed itself to “Meta” to bring a digital world replica at par with the physical world.
