In fact, the hotel is hosting this year one of the largest conferences bank of Asia. “This annual conference has become the ‘flagship event in the calendar of the members of any brotherhood bank and financial of the country “, one can read on the official Web-site of the conference.
The indian government has not yet formalized the prohibition crypto-currencies
During the conference, Kumar has not ceased to reiterate the position of the RBI, according to which any user, owner, investor and trader of crypto-currencies will do so at their own risk.
