NRIs experiment with Cryptos for remittances


In October for the first time, Roychaudhary bought cryptocurrencies worth half that amount – ₹1 lakh – and his wife who has access to his wallet could use the sum when needed.

Roychaudhary like many Indian, Pakistani, Bangladeshi and Filipino expats are increasingly experimenting with cryptocurrencies to remit money to their families back home and save on commissions charged by wire transfer companies and other middlemen.
“The process of remittances through cryptocurrencies into India is a lot more efficient and faster than the conventional process, and all transactions are visible on the blockchain network from a regulatory point of view,” said Edul Patel, CEO of Mudrex, a Global Crypto Investing Platform.

Remittances in India are pegged at about $80 billion which are mainly transferred through banking or other financial channels.
