Binance, one of the largest crypto-currency exchanges, joined the Digital Asset Exchange committee of the Indian Internet and Mobile Association (IAMAI).
The association is the leading trade body representing digital companies in India and was one of those that confronted the Central Bank of India when it ordered a local bank to ban transactions with Immediate Bitcoin companies. The ban was overturned by the Supreme Court earlier this year.
A week ago in India, the local media reported that the Ministry of Finance had again proposed a total ban on crypto currency.
