India reported bitcoin illegal currency, bitcoin exchange counter
Recently, India bitcoin exchange Zebpay dismissed the country’s media reports about bitcoin. The country has been in the news media in the government of India has declared bitcoin as “illegal” currency.
In March 24th, India Senator KiritSomaiya said bitcoin is a Ponzi scheme
March 24th (Friday), India politician KiritSomaiya bitcoin labeled as a “virtual currency”, said bitcoin only exists in an imaginary consciousness, the overall operation of the structure is similar to the “Ponzi scheme”.
KiritSomaiya party is the ruling party of India, a member of the parliament of India itself is he. KiritSomaiya recently expressed concern on the domestic financial regulatory agencies, including the Central Bank of India.
Since then, India has the news media reported the story, and in the comments reported in KiritSomaiya as “the government of India has classified as” illegal “bitcoin currency”. Because the media that the identity of the KiritSomaiya on behalf of the parliament of India, and the “Ponzi scheme” itself is illegal, so the media will draw on the equal sign.
As one of India’s largest bitcoin exchange, Zebpay said in its blog rebuttal,
“No, this is not true (referring to the media false statements). The legal status of bitcoin this week in India without any change. In our view, bitcoin is not illegal. Bitcoin does not violate any of the laws of India. All in India to carry out bitcoin exchange is still business as usual.”
The reality is that since bitcoin entered India, India government has never claimed bitcoin illegal, also did not pass legislation to confirm the legitimacy of bitcoin. Therefore, the India local media reports that the government of India has been classified as “illegal” bitcoin currency “speech is indeed not correct.
