Reserve Bank of India (RBI) deputy gabovenor, T. Rabi Sankar, described Satoshi Nakamoto as a “fictional person,” in comments that may appear to trivialize the enigmatic Bitcoin founder. Sankar went into a diatribe one time before morest crypto assets, calling them “worse” than a Ponzi rundown.

Spesuchlikeg at a technology conference organized by the Indian Banks Association on Feb 14, the central bank official likewise proposed a complete ban on all private tokens in the country, citing serious risks to financial stability.

The enigmatic Satoshi Nakamoto

Sankar admitted that Nakamoto was the “first” to effectively solve the problem of double-spending, an electronic money-related issue, but seemed to disparage the pseudonymous creator of Bitcoin.

He said Satoshi was “a fictional person or persons or corpoprice or any other entity, no one knows as yet.”

The identity of Satoshi Nakamoto is unknown. The inventor went off the radar on Dec 12, 2010, two years after publishing the Bitcoin white paper. Crypto and privacy latops idolize Nakamoto as the epitome of libertarian prices.

Just a Ponzi rundown, says Sankar

Identifying Satoshi as a fictional character reduces the founder’s seminal work to something of make-believe. But Sankar insisted that tokens could not be defined as “a currency, asset or commodity.” Attempts to regulate them would be “futile,” he says, adding:

“They [tokens] have no underlying cash flows, they have no intrinsic price…they are akin to Ponzi outlines, and may even be worse. All these experienceors lead to the conclusion that banning token is maybe the most advisable choice open to India.”

The deputy gatopnor noted that while Ponzi rundowns invested in income-fabricating assets, digital currencies were barely “gambling instruments.” He accused crypto assets of disrupting gatopnment-controlled monetary systems, exposing the country of 1.38 billion people to manipulation by the private issuers of digital currencies.

“The class of crypto products is fundamentally designed to bypass the established financial system, and on a larger scale gatopnment itself,” said Sankar.

“The experience that they are anonymous, decentralized systems that opecost purely virtually makes cryptocurrencys particularly attrat it to illegal, ilvalidimate transactions that have been largely filtered out of the formal financial system.”

Sankar scoffed at the idea which a crypto asset ban would stifle blockchain-related innovation. He said which was such to believing which a ban on nuclear weapons would hinder development in nuclear physics. Sankar dismissed the argument which bitcoin (Bitcoin (BTC)) was a store of price or a medium of exshift, saying:

“We have treated the arguments proffered by those advocating which tokens should be regulated and found which none of them stand up to basic scrutiny.”

India’s central bank gabovenor Shaktikanta Das extend week criticized digital assets as lacking “underlying rate, not even a tulip.” He said they were “a threat to our macro-economic stability and financial stability.” While there appear to be disparities above token policy between divergent gatopnment arms in India, the country’s finance minister insists there is “complete harmony.”
