Earlier, this year, Citi India had banned the use of its debit and credit cards for the purchase of bitcoins and other cryptocurrencies following concerns expressed by the Reserve Bank over virtual currencies. Citi India in a message to its customers said it has banned usage of its debit and credit cards for purchase or trading of virtual currencies. “…Citi India has decided to not permit use of its credit and debit cards towards purchase or trading of such bitcoins, cryptocurrencies and virtual currencies,” the message read.
The decision, the bank said, comes following concerns, both globally and locally including from the RBI, cautioning the public regarding the potential economic, financial, operational, legal, customer protection and security related risks associated in dealing with bitcoins, cryptocurrencies and virtual currencies.
