India is yet to onboard the blockchain friendly regulations that countries like Australia, Switzerland, Malta, and many others are already running on. Despite the harsh remarks from regulatory authorities in the past, Indian blockchain community is still doubling down on the budding blockchain technology and crypto-centric companies within the country.
Although India’s crypto and blockchain industry are still in limbo, few prominent Indian blockchain enthusiasts are playing hard to assist policy makers/Govt agencies in signing in the friendly blockchain regulations. One such enthusiast is ‘Akshay Aggarwal’, co-founder of Blockchained India, an open blockchain community.

Akshay Aggarwal with his Blockchained India team has successfully voiced the opinions of the Indian blockchain community through open town halls that captured top-bulletins just last month. These open town halls, The Blockchain Roadshow conducted across Indian cities is now a draft of blockchain regulations report being presented to lawmakers through their upcoming conference – The India Dapp Fest 2019.

Speaking to news.bitcoin.com, Mr. Aggarwal asserted that;
“We have found Delhi and Bangalore to be the most mature ecosystems. The enthusiasm, especially in Delhi, is another level altogether. Though when you look specifically at enterprise blockchains, Hyderabad comes quite close to Bangalore. This is due to the initiative of the Telangana government to form a blockchain district.”
Since the underlying vision behind the street show is tagged with ‘Does India need crypto regulations?’, the news achieved mainstream media attention. As India’s connection to crypto & blockchain industry is something that has raised the eyebrows of other countries which positively entered its friendly zone.
