India is Not Being Smart About Tokens

India's move to ban cryptos, and hurt companies that are working with a valuable new technology is pretty dumb. In addition to having a huge unbanked population, India suffers from ongoing problems related to a heavy bureaucracy that has been documented to be highly corrupt.

During the COVID-19 lockdowns, images of poor migrants being sprayed down with dangerous chemicals in India were common, and these working poor had no chance to defend themselves from government actions that served no one.

Additionally, it has been shown that Indian PM Modi supports vicious discrimination against religious minorities, much in the same what that the Chinese government puts ethnic Muslims in 'reeducation' camps.
