Amid the future of cryptocurrencies in India, Indian Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman highlighted concerns about cryptocurrencies yesterday.
Speaking at a seminar at the IMF spring meeting in yesterday, Sitharaman said: “I think the biggest risk for all countries in general is money laundering and also the monetary aspect used to finance terrorism.”
She said the only answer was regulation. “Technology regulation needs to be smarter so that it doesn’t exaggerate the curve, but keeps it up to date.”
According to the ANI report, he reached an official visit to Washington this morning to attend the World Bank’s spring meetings, the G20 finance ministers ‘meetings and the central bank governors’ meeting (FMCBG).
