MetaMask Integrates Onramp.money to Ease Crypto Investments in India
Onramp.money is an Indian supplier of crypto-to-fiat on-ramp solutions that have been linked with MetaMask. The connection would enable Indian users to buy cryptocurrencies from inside the MetaMask wallet app via Onramp.money’s API, which backs domestic payment options including UPI and IMPS.
MetaMask’s product manager, Lorenzo Santos, stated, “We are thrilled to work with Onramp.money to provide rapid transaction facilities to our Indian customers.” This, we think, will contribute to the increased use of blockchain technology throughout India.
Regardless of the challenging regulatory structure for cryptocurrency investments in India, which includes a 30% tax on cryptocurrency profits and a 1% source levy, this incorporation will make it simpler for Indian customers to build wealth on the Ethereum, Polygon, and BNB Chain and utilize them within decentralized applications. The absence of legal certainty from the state and the difficulties of locating on-ramp banking services continue to be obstacles for the Indian cryptocurrency business.
Nirmala Sitharaman, the Indian Finance Minister, avoided speaking about cryptocurrency asset-related changes or regulations in her latest budget statement for the fiscal year 2023–2024. Sitharaman and rest of the government officials have still underlined the need for a standard strategy for governing cryptocurrencies, consistent with international regulations, in order to offer cryptocurrency investors in the nation with specific rules.
