What led to Panic Selling By Investors On 23rd November?
On Tuesday, 23rd of November the Government issued a parliamentary notice stating that it is ready with the much-awaited Cryptocurrency bill and will be passing it in the Winter session of the parliament.
What followed was a wave of panic selling by the investors as they assumed that the government will most likely ban private cryptocurrencies as is suggested by RBI. This led to a major crash on most Indian crypto exchanges.

It is portable to note that popular cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Etgereum are considered public cryptocurrencies as their transactions are traceable, unlike private cryptocurrencies.
If you are to believe experts, such a ban is highly unlikely. Avinash Shekhar, the co-CEO of Zebpay, one of India’s leading crypto exchanges pointed out that while the government will focus on sticker regulations on crypto as it for snot want crypto to attain the status of fiat currency in the country, it will not be outright banning cryptocurrencies.
Hitesh Malviya, founder, itsblockchain.com, blamed different interpretations about the “definition of private cryptocurrencies by media and influencers ‘ for the panic witnessed yesterday on Indian crypto exchanges.
While also stating that the ruling government should be more responsible in demarcating what exactly is “private cryptocurrency”
