This month has seen the Reserve Bank of India turn its bank on cryptocurrency-related accounts. In a new development, the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP), the country’s central bank, advised Pakistani citizens not to transact in cryptocurrencies, while telling banks and financial institutions not to facilitate crypto-related business.
In a statement published on the central bank’s website, it states cryptocurrencies are not recognized as legal tender.
