    The world must take collective action to regulate crypto industry — India’s finance minister

    In a recent television interview, India’s Finance Minister, Nirmala Sitharaman, suggested that regulation “cannot be done” by a single country; it requires an international effort.

    Speaking to Rahul Joshi on CNBC-TV18 in India on Feb. 3, Sitharaman noted that while the central bank is the “authority for issuing cryptocurrency,” the rest of the digital assets created outside are “using very useful financial technologies.”

    Sitharaman said that India is looking at a “global” standard operating procedure to be “agreed upon” for regulating crypto assets, ahead of hosting the G20 finance ministers and central bank governors meeting in Bengaluru later this month.

    She suggested that for crypto regulations to be effective it requires global consensus. She noted:

    “Regulation cannot be done by any one country singularly, it has to be a collective action because technology doesn’t group any borders.”

    This comes after the news that Sitharaman didn’t mention any changes to income tax laws in relation to crypto, central bank digital currency or blockchain technology in the union budget on Feb. 1.

    There have been numerous developments in crypto regulations by various countries within the G20.

    Most recently, the Australian government released a token mapping consultation paper on Feb. 3, ahead of their plans to release a licensing and custody framework in mid-2023.

    During a speech in Paris on Jan. 5, the Governor of the Bank of France, Francois Villeroy de Galhau, stated that France shouldn’t wait on European Union crypto laws but instead take action on licensing “as soon as possible.”

    Brazil and Argentina are having their own discussions about creating a common digital currency together in an effort to reduce dependance on the U.S. dollar.

    Meanwhile, Huang Yiping, a former member of the Monetary Policy Committee at the People’s Bank of China, believes that the Chinese government should reconsider its ban on cryptocurrency trading, suggesting it may not be sustainable in the long run.
