How to use 50 trillion Shiba Inu in India, which hit Covid and the cautious crypt

Nailwal’s team has collected $1.04 billion worth of cryptocurrencies in donations. The efforts come at a time when India is
struggling with
record daily coronavirus infections and deaths on the back of a crumbling health infrastructure lacking vaccines, medicines, oxygen supply and hospital beds. India has reported more than 300,000 daily infections for 22 consecutive days, highlighting the country’s slide into the world’s worst health crisis.
“Transferring donations, even large ones, is secure and simple through crypto,” said Vikram Rangala, chief operating officer of crypto exchange ZebPay, that aims to support Nailwal’s covid fund. “Blockchain has advantages over traditional rupee or fiat payments. There’s no way that people are using donations as a way to get rid of their crypto. They can just sell it if they don’t want it anymore.” The Crypto Coid Relief Fund didn’t immediately reply to an email seeking comment. Nailwal didn’t answer calls and messages. Representatives for India’s finance ministry and central bank didn’t immediately reply to emails seeking comment.

The massive crypto donation comes at a time when India’s regulator has been expressing concerns about the asset class such as questions about the source of funds. That has spurred discussions about whether charities that receive such donations must dispose of the coins before any looming ban.
Sandeep Nailwal, a cryptocurrency entrepreneur from New Delhi who created the fund three weeks ago, says he has hit upon a solution. He announced last month that his India Covid Crypto Relief Fund has already identified an entity to convert the donations into rupees, and an aid-receiver compliant with India’s Foreign Contribution Regulation Act. He now vows to “act responsibly” to protect the retail community. The fund intends to liquidate only gradually to protect prices.

Source economictimes.indiatimes.com Bloomberg’s Vrishti Beniwal and Anirban Nag contributed to this story.

“Transferring cryptos from Indian citizens into the covid relief funds is faster as it is easy to conduct a due-diligence on the source of such funds to comply with regulatory rules,” said Ramalingam Subramanian, head of marketing at CoinDCX, one of the exchanges offering support.
Other cryptocurrency exchanges have also tied up with Nailwal’s fund to provide support with fund collections, audit, and procurement of materials.
