The Indian Crypto Bulls Roadshow describes itself as a not-for-profit initiative that seeks to educate Indian citizens as to the emerging blockchain and cryptocurrency sectors.

It has been reported that the roadshow was originally scheduled to visit eight major Indian cities over 20 days — New Delhi, Jaipur, Ahmedabad, Surat, Mumbai, Pune, Hyderabad, and Bangalore.

However, after India’s Supreme Court ruling that the Reserve Bank of India’s (RBI) ban on banks providing services to companies operating with crypto was unconstitutional, the roadshow has scheduled seven additional cities to host the event — Chennai, Visakhapatnam, Bhubaneswar, Kolkata, Patna, and Kanpur.

To plan for the additional locations, the roadshow’s starting date has moved from March 12 to April 3. The event will now span more than 7,000 kilometers, with its organizers claiming that it will be the largest crypto awareness movement in the world.

While international crypto companies will be represented at the event, public voting from the event will be used to select local representatives to speak at Consensus 2020 in New York.

Moreover, Crypto Bulls’ website predicts that the events will see more than 10,000 attendees including representatives from more than 500 startups.

It has been analyzed that the roadshow was created by Indian cryptocurrency pioneers, Kumar Gaurav of UK-based payments platform Cashaa, and Gaurav Dubey of Dubai-based virtual currency hedge fund 01ex.

Likewise, within 24 hours of the RBI ban being repealed, Indian exchanges Unocoin, Wazirx, and CoinDCX had resumed fiat deposit services.

WazirX was acquired by Binance during November 2019, while OKEx partnered with CoinDCX to launch a futures product last month.

Also, HashCash Consultants announced that it would invest $10 million into the Indian crypto sector during 2020.

It has also been analyzed that according to research firm Crebaco Global, India’s blockchain and crypto industries have a potential market size of over $12.9 billion with the possibility of creating 20,000 jobs.

Despite the crypto community rejoicing over the repeal of the RBI ban, India’s cryptocurrency industry is not out of the woods yet.

However, on March 6, The Economic Times reported that RBI is still concerned that widespread virtual currency adoption could put India’s banking system at risk, and plans to appeal the Supreme Court’s decision.

Thus, India’s parliament is also yet to rule on the pending “Banning of Cryptocurrency and Regulation of Official Digital Currency Bill” from 2019.
