Patra said India will proceed very gradually on the subject as there are concerns on privacy, its impact on monetary policy formulation and energy intensity.

He also emphasized that the Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) will be introduced in FY23 as announced by Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman in the Budget speech.

Also, now advertisers will have to prominently carry a disclaimer for crypto products and non-fungible tokens mentioning that these products are ”unregulated and can be highly risky”, according to the Advertising Standards Council of India (ASCI).

ASCI has released guidelines for crypto or virtual digital assets related advertisements, which will be applicable on or after April 1. Earlier advertisements must not appear in the public domain unless they comply with the new guidelines after April 15, 2022.

One of the most popular metaverse projects in the crypto space, The Sandbox is a play-to-earn game where players build their own games, digital assets and get to personalize them.

It uses SAND – its native token – to facilitate transactions and player engagement. Its popularity can be witnessed in its 2021 performance, where it went from $0.04 to an all-time high of $8.51 – a 24,000 per cent increase.

Chart-SANDET CONTRIBUTORSSince then, however, it has also corrected nearly 70 per cent as it bounces between a long parallel channel post a corrective ABC Elliot wave and struggles to stay afloat while Bitcoin’s bearish moves affect the broader altcoin market. Like many other altcoins, however, it seems to be headed for a double bottom.

This level is in confluence with the middle of the parallel channel and may send it across resistances at $3.96 and $4.82 should bullishness resume. In the bearish case, its recent low of $2.55 is crucial. If this level is lost, the next viable support is at $2.34 and $2.03.

Major levels:
Support: $2.55, $2.34, $2.03
Resistance: $3.43, $3.96, $4.82
