There were some problems and doubts related to the Bitcoin because the government didn't want the people to invest in the risky and decentralized cryptocurrency which is quite volatile in nature. But lately, the Finance ministry of India formed a separate committee to study the structure of blockchain technology, take suggestions/opinions from people and industries about their views on Bitcoins. It is not that the cryptocurrency is illegal in India. Government will soon be deciding to make it legal and regulate it under some authority to guide and help investors for the procedures to invest in Bitcoins. The Bitcoin prices are soaring since its recent hard forking, due to which it got split into Bitcoin cash and Bitcoin.
Recently, the prices of Bitcoin crossed $3400 in the global market, due to which the investors had a relief over the confusions over the market value of Bitcoins after the split. India being the developing country is an economy which is growing steadily.

The economy can benefit a lot if India adopts Bitcoins currency or make it legal so that the industrial sector can invest in it freely and gain profit.
India is a developing country. It can easily adopt and change the currency system in its economy. Bitbay, which is a Poland based Bitcoin exchange will launch its platform in India, that will allow bitcoin trade in India, as it also wishes to collaborate with the government so that whatever confusions are there in India regarding Bitcoins, they can work together on clearing it make India a legal platform for Bitcoins growth. With such transformations in the market prices and collaborations in India, we can expect the high changes in the Indian economy as well in terms of Bitcoins, and India can truly become a platform for the big market of Bitcoins.
