Bitcoin and Ether are increasing.  The ban on encryption in India might not be so bad.

The bill “seeks to prohibit all private cryptocurrencies in India, however, it allows for certain exceptions to promote the underlying technology of cryptocurrency and its uses,” according to a bulletin posted Tuesday on the parliamentary website. Ether
came under pressure Wednesday, as markets reacted to India’s intention to ban most cryptos as part of a plan to introduce a digital currency regulated by its central bank.

Bitcoin, which is the largest crypto with a market capitalization of $1.1 trillion, rose 4% Thursday to around $58,700, up from lows near $56,000 reached Wednesday, according to price data from CoinDesk. Bitcoin has fallen some 15% from its all time high of nearly $69,000 hit earlier this month.  Ether, the second-largest digital asset, was similarly 4% higher to $4,450, but remains more than 8% down from its early-November record high near $4,900. “We met the finance committee of Parliament around two weeks back,” the crypto executive said. “The message or the feelers which we are getting from the government is that they’re looking for some kind of regulation—strict regulation, but not a complete ban.”

Shekhar told the media outlet that there have “been lots of positive vibes from the government.” “My belief is that we will have some kind of coherent regulation, but on the tougher side,” Avinash Shekhar, the co-CEO of Zebpay—an Indian cryptocurrency exchange—told CNBC Thursday.
