Zebpay to Stop Fiat Withdrawal

Local crypto community hopes that issues will be solved ASAP

Leading bitcoin-exchange of India Zebpay announced the stop of deposits and the possibility of withdrawing funds in Indian rupee (INR) due to the ban of the country's central bank to provide banking services to crypto-cash companies.

On April 5, the Central Bank of India banned all financial institutions of the country, including banks, to provide services to companies whose activities are related to crypto-currencies. RBI has given banks three months to fulfill this order.

Despite several attempts to challenge the innovation in court, the Supreme Court of India left the ban in force.

Last month, Zebpay urged users to actively file requests for withdrawal of funds in fiat money, warning that withdrawing the fiat deposits could become "impossible."

Meanwhile, local crypto-enthusiasts, investors and industry representatives still hope that rules will soon be adopted that will legalize this sector.

The developers of the Waves blockchain platform have released the previously announced browser extension Waves Keeper to securely sign of transactions.

Team said that the extension allows to confirm transactions online without providing confidential information to third-party resources and the need to enter a private key. Also, several accounts can be used in Waves Keeper.

The major benefit is that private keys are stored securely within the extension, allowing the user to confirm transactions and engage with Waves-enabled web services and dApps without entering their private keys or passwords. This mitigates the threat from malicious websites, while making using Waves online frictionless.
