Reserve Bank of India to study blockchain applications

Reserve Bank of India (RBI) proposed to local banks to study blockchain applications.
In fact, a bank deputy governor encouraged other Indian banks to collaborate within a research group previously created by the central bank on blockchain projects.
During a recent event held by the Institute for Development and Research in Banking Technology (IDRBT) on 19th July, Rama Gandhi explained how banks should develop applications for the blockchain and cryptocurrencies.
These were his words:
“Cloud-based computing, blockchain processing technologies and virtualization of IT systems are a few examples which hold potential for being used in a big way … Banks and IDRBT can work together to study these, test them out and adapt for best use.”

Bank of India wants its own digital currency

The Reserve Bank of India has been investigating distributed ledger applications of the technology since 2014, according to reports.
Back then Central bank governor Raghuram Rajan said that the bank could release its own cryptocurrency but no more details are available about this project.
