A community roadshow has been uniting crypto enthusiasts in several cities in India to share their ideas on the country’s crypto regulation. “The best ones will be included in the report to be submitted to the decision makers amongst the government,” the organizer of the events explained.
Uniting Crypto Enthusiasts
Blockchained India has been hosting a series of roadshow meetups in a number of cities in the country where it has chapters. The theme of the meetings is “Does India need crypto regulations?” These events are part of a run-up to the group’s larger event called the “India Dapp Fest” which is planned for May.
There are four open town hall meetings altogether. One is being held on March 16 in Hyderabad. Two have already been held: one in Delhi and the other in Mumbai. The fourth meeting in the series will take place in Bangalore on March 30. Manav Ailawadi, a key member of the group, was quoted by Crypto News India on Friday as saying:
So far, everything that has been happening on a national level (for crypto) has been about cryptocurrency exchanges, primarily. We wanted to unite the community which also includes, investors, stakeholders, developers, and make them a part of the conversation.
Blockchained India co-founder Akshay Aggarwal tweeted on Friday that “The intentions with this roadshow are pure. We want to help the good folks hustling day and night from the crypto space.” He has urged the community to join in on the roadshow and voice their opinions regarding the crypto regulation in India. On March 6, he tweeted:
… it’s time for you all this Saturday to share your opinions around whether India needs crypto regulations.
