Startup Street: As SC lifts ban on cryptocurrencies, will future of virtual money be bright?

The Supreme Court has struck down RBI’s ban on trading in virtual currency, cryptocurrencies and bitcoins. India's cryptocurrency community has been battling this ban for nearly two years.
The RBI, in April 2018, had barred recognised entities from cryptocurrency transactions in India. This is a huge step forward for India’s crypto community and hopefully there will now be more startups emerging from this space in the next few months.
