PMC Bank of India Shows the World Why Cryptocurrency Is Necessary

in #btuniverse11 months ago



India is Ground Zero for the battle between the establishment and cryptocurrency.

The second most populated nation is doing its best to ban cryptocurrencies and give the banks a free path to continue their games. The level of corruption in India is moving to new highs.

Punjab and Maharashtra Cooperative(PMC) Bank is now mired in the middle of a scandal. The ones feeling the biggest impact is the customers of the bank who are cut off from their funds.

The bank tried regulators by using technology and misreporting financial information. Non-performing assets were hidden by submitting manipulated financial information.

This is an ongoing trend we see in the banking world. A tweet last month summed up what is taking place.

We are starting to see millions around the world affected. It makes one wonder when the tipping point will be reached and people will stop accepting this behavior.

Another on Twitter explored that very idea.

The situation does not apply only to Indians. Venezuela is seeing hyperinflation due to the actions of the government. Wells Fargo, one of the largest banks in the United States, is continually in hot water with regulators for corrupt actions that rob customers.

In the end, only fines are levied which the bank happily pays.

Cryptocurrency provides ownership of one's money. There is no way to prevent one from accessing it. As long as the key is held, the money is available.

Blockchain also negates the behavior we are seeing out of the bankers. With all transactions immutable on the blockhain, technology cannot be used to hide nefarious activities like in the case of PMC.

As the list of banks robbing customers grows, when do people stand up and say no more? With Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies providing viable alternatives, it is only a matter of time before people wake up.

That is unless the bankers start changing their behavior. Of course, they have shown an unwillingess to do this.

This is really necessary for all around countries

India won't accept cryto-currencies until it figures out how to make tax from it...

but its been year court is not decided yet its just dum thing india do is just time waste

I think they know it's almost impossible. But they'll try there best.

Interesting that they think about it, but I do not think that would happen.

All governments will eventually capitulate. To remain relevant from a geopolitical context, they need to enable adoption. Otherwise they'll get out innovated by other countries.
