Crypto Industry News:
After the president of El Salvador announced that bitcoin was adopted as legal tender, the Indian Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) intends to reconsider the current cryptocurrency ban and initiate cryptocurrency regulation oversight processes.
India's top cryptocurrency industry leaders are negotiating with the finance ministry on a new set of regulatory rules, and the ministry is now looking at it.
According to the cited source, the new bill on the regulation of cryptocurrencies will probably be discussed by parliament for discussion during the monsoon season, i.e. between June and October this year.
Reserve Bank of India (RBI) again banned lenders from working with companies whose activities are related to virtual currencies - mainly crypto exchanges due to the high volatility of cryptocurrency prices.
However, El Salvador legalizing bitcoin as a tender and other Latin American countries that wish to follow suit may have prompted Indian regulators to consider changing their stance.

The next long-term target for bears is seen at the level of $1,728 (61% Fibonacci retracement of the last wave up) and $1,420 ( January 2018 swing high). The up trend is resumed when the level of min. $3,000 is clearly violated.
