Indian Government Plans to Block IP Addresses of Crypto Exchanges

As per a Business Standard report, the Indian government is contemplating blocking the IP addresses of crypto exchanges as part of its forthcoming ban on digital currencies. Nevertheless, the government did not mention whether it plans to block IP addresses of domestic exchanges or international ones. Moreover, earlier, the Central government attempted to block the IP addresses of adult sites and hundreds of Chinese applications, although people could still access them.
