G-20 meetings & India
In the present time, the Indian finance ministry is doing its best to bring Global crypto regulation as a top agenda in the G-20 meetings, to prohibit the illegal use of cryptocurrencies.
Under the G-20 presidency, Indian finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman many times said that a single country can’t regulate the crypto sector because cryptocurrencies are backed by decentralised technology, so there is a need to bring collaboration between all the countries to deal with this sector & ensure the safety of the investors.
IMF vs El Salvador
As we know, El Salvador is a bitcoin supporter country. In September 2021, the El Salvador government officially released regulatory approval for Bitcoin as a legal tender alongside the US dollar.
After a visit to El Salvador earlier this month, the IMF agency released its report on El Salvador’s Bitcoin legal tender plan and suggested that they should think again. According to the IMF agency, if El Salvador will not drag its feet back then surely it may face a very big financial stability risk.
