But does it always protect investors in all high volatility markets including the stock and derivatives markets Related News BY: Anshul Verma and RK Pattnaik A ban on bitcoin is not the answer to the RBI’s regulatory concerns Last year a virtual currency (bitcoin) boomed from $13 to $1250 per unit value reaching over Rs 63000 in the Indian market along its rollercoaster ride There came a bump on the road when the Reserve Bank of India issued a notification on December 24 2013 cautioning “users holders and traders of virtual currencies (VCs) including bitcoin about the potential financial operational and legal customer protection and security related risks that they are exposing themselves to” On February 12 in reply to a question posed to him at the annual Nasscom India Leadership Forum the RBI governor said that he has worries about the underlying fluctuations in the price of bitcoin and also the maintenance of its value The concern shown by the governor is in light of the fact that any currency gets its value from its stability which is not the case with virtual currencies He also said that the RBI is understanding virtual currencies better and will come out with a more considered view In this context it is important to note that virtual currency is a currency that relies on cryptography peer-to-peer networking and decentralisation In some cases like bitcoin a proof-of-work scheme is used to create and manage the currency These currencies especially bitcoin boast of many exciting features that make it “the perfect digital currency” Some of these features are frictionless anonymous and cryptographically secure Given that bitcoin is invisible to law enforcement agencies and taxation departments its growing appeal is understandable But if these currencies are so good why are governments and central banks not encouraging such trading Are they pretending to be advocates of a free market economy while still wanting to keep their monopolistic positions in the currencies market First it is important to address the volatility in bitcoin as it results in high risk for investors The RBI is concerned about probable losses to investors due to volatility in virtual currency markets The analysis of data from bitcoinschartscom suggests that the bid-ask spread has a high range between 310 for GBP and 554907 for the rupee However does the RBI always protect investors in all high volatility markets including the stock and derivatives markets Second the RBI also has concerns relating to taxation Taxes are seen as the medium of providing growth to the economy and virtual currencies like bitcoin are a threat to the federal taxation system due to their intrinsic quality of not identifying the person transacting in the currency But is a ban on bitcoin likely to solve this concern A third concern is security There could be security risk in transactions relating to trading in virtual currencies like bitcoin but one must not forget that this kind of risk is built into any transaction done through internet or for that matter plastic money as well Thus if the argument holds true for virtual currencies it also holds true for plastic money and e-wallets At least bitcoin has a proof-of-work scheme to prevent it Fourth is the concern about money laundering There had been strong opposition to the activities of money laundering which is said to pose a threat to the federal economic system due to its links to black money and support for anti-national activities The authorities have strongly acted against hawala transactions where identifying transacting parties had been easy but it may take new shape through virtual currencies like bitcoin Given the over-protective approach of the regulator it is likely that its considered view is going to lean towards a ban on transactions in virtual currency Such trade cannot be stopped by a command-and-control approach alone If the authorities reallywant to stop trading in virtual currencies like bitcoin they may have to ban the internet Is that even feasible The RBI must not throw the baby out with the bathwater If it desires to counter the rise of these currencies it must take some intelligent steps like lowering the transaction fee; accelerating the process of receiving payments through cards or the banking system etc The RBI could also try to incorporate virtual currencies in their framework for typical transactions like forex which may counter the typical problems of current account deficit People invest to earn and if they think bitcoin helps earnings they will trade in it; if not bitcoin will perish automatically The writers are professors at SP Jain Institute of Management & Research Mumbai Views are personal For all the latest Opinion News download

Bollywood’s power couple Kareena Kapoor Khan and Saif Ali Khan are inseparable A few days back Kareena was seen at Mumbai airport as she left the country to join her husband in London where he was shooting for his upcoming film Chef a remake of Jon Favreau film Kareena’s solo appearance at the airport without baby Taimur Ali Khan garnered a lot of attention However the couple is back in the town after a short trip to London We did not spot Taimur Ali Khan with them but could it be because it is too early for the tiny tot to fly Kareena had a swell time in London as she met designer Sandeep Khosla and Rhea Kapoor The entire Kapoor family — Anil and Sunita Kapoor with daughters Rhea and Sonam — was in London to celebrate Sunita’s birthday Going by their airport looks both Kareena and Saif were looking very stylish Kareena wore a pair of jacket and black slacks Saif who likes to keep it simple and classic went for a pair of denim and a blue jacket Kareena who usually poses happily for shutterbugs seemed in a hurry We wonder if that was due to little Taimur waiting at home On the work front Saif Ali Khan’s next film Chef is the official remake of 2014 American film by the same name Saif has apparently brushed up his culinary skills for the film which also stars Raman Raghav 20 actor Sobhita Dhulipala and is slated to release later this year Saif was last seen in

(Source: AP) Related News On January 28 1980 Muhammad Ali floated into Bombay like a butterfly and stung the city’s press corps like a bee My then colleague Ayesha Kagal and I know this because we were there Lowly sub-editors who primed copy for the Sunday magazine of The Times of India we nursed this ambition of clinching an exclusive Ali interview Neither of us knew anything about boxing but that minor detail didn’t stop us We pushed our way into Ali’s crowded press conference He was having fun demolishing the assembly with his verbal jabs cuts and hooks His gags rose up in the air: “I get paid to act crazy what’s your excuse”; “Okay now let’s have the intelligent questions”; “I’m not as dumb as I look”; “I think this interview/deserves a higher IQ” The 40-minute presser went by in what felt like five If the insults flowed freely so did the laughter He was everything he was made out to be: brassy opinionated narcissistic yet very human Before long the performance was over and the star was whisked away Ayesha and I looked at each other — that exclusive interview in our heads was appearing a very elusive one Ambition however burned brightly Early next morning found us at the reception desk of the Taj hotel In those days it was easy to gain entry but details of where the prized guest was located were strictly withheld By the dint of hanging around we gathered Ali was in the hotel’s most exclusive suite: Sixth floor old building Minutes later we were ensconced in a sofa outside the rose pink door of Suite No 640 A laundry man served as the door opener His knock and voila Ali appeared He showed no surprise on being asked for an interview almost as if he expected us “Come on in” he said in his low lilting voice while alerting wife Veronica that they had guests At last we were face-to-face with The Champ At 38 he was still “pretty” Traces of grey were touching the temples and the jaw line was losing its firmness but his eyes held a schoolboy glint There was little of the braggadocio of yesterday He had questions for us as well: Do you have problems in Bombay How often do people die of hunger in Bombay If a man had $100000 would he be rich in India His India visit he said was tied to a desire to set up a “global non-profit organisation for charity” Will charity solve the world’s problems we asked The response was quick: “No charity can solve the world’s problems Jesus Christ couldn’t solve the world’s problems Muhammad of Arabia couldn’t solve the world’ s problems President Carter can’t solve them Muhammad Ali can’t solve them We’re doing what little we can to help” We teased him by suggesting he read Marx to address poverty He looked interested: “Don’t know him Was he a religious man” For his part he was driven by an idea: “Everybody in the world seems to know Muhammad Ali I believe Allah did this for a reason That’s why I feel I got to do something We are hoping people give us ideas If you’ve got ideas any man from president to pauper got an idea we’ll take it” His humaneness came through in the organisation’s motto: “The world is my home and every country has only a room And all the people of all races all religions are my brothers and sisters” We asked many questions: Did his mother lose her front teeth because he swung his fist as a baby “Yeh my first knock-out” Who was his toughest opponent “Joe Frazier” Has commercialism killed boxing “Commercialism what’s that Money Well the idea that a man can make money encourages him to do better” Did he know his quote “I am the Greatest” didn’t make it to the Oxford Dictionary of Quotations because it’s been said before “It’s been said before” (Incredulous) “Where’s the book from” (Wary) From England “Is there any page there that says somebody else said it” (Suspicious) We didn’t know What about the rumour that he was paid $300000 to retire “No Bob Arum didn’t pay me no money to retire I was gonna retire anyway He had this retirement party fixed They put it up on national TV So I said through my attorney ‘If you put a retirement party on TV you’re gonna make money So Muhammad Ali wants $300000 to have his name used’ So they paid me” He went on to say that the “whole white power structure” was after him “The white man in America is the most powerful man on earth militarily wealth-wise technologicallyand when he is out to get you he gets you I challenged America with Allah I challenged the draft I challenged the system and came up victorious” Our last question was about growing old Pensive now he said “Old age is something that I want to be one day I want to live up to hundred and twenty if I can” Then as an afterthought “Know something Everybody wants to go to heaven but nobody wants to die” Death finally found Muhammad Ali at 74 but it doesn’t have the power in its right fist to knock The Legend down (This article first appeared in the print edition under the headline ‘Death can’t knock him down’) For all the latest Opinion News

government as captive to corporate interests but such hyperbole does disservice to the issue at stake Related News A day after he made a feisty return to Parliament Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi raised the issue of net neutrality in the House arguing for the principle that internet service providers (ISPs) be barred from prioritising data in exchange for money This paper agrees that this principle must be defended if the open and innovative nature of the internet is to be preserved However as with his intervention on the land acquisition bill Gandhi did so by casting private corporations in the role of evil marauders and accused the Narendra Modi government of trying to “carve out the Net and hand it over to some corporates” That’s rich coming from a leader whose party’s government was embroiled in scandal over its preferential allocation of 2G spectrum to select telecom providers However Communications and Information Technology Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad’s response too failed to illuminate the pros and cons of net neutrality reiterating only the opaque platitude that his government’s “aim is that the country’s 125 crore people should have internet” From the Congress’s point of view it might look like good political strategy to paint the government as captive to corporate interests as the post-sabbatical Rahul seems bent on doing but such hyperbole does disservice to the issue at stake The unparalleled growth of the mobile industry in India occurred when the state got out of the way and created a regulatory environment that enabled private enterprise to flourish Competition helped drive prices down so that the poor could also afford mobiles So when telecom companies like Vodafone and Airtel primary ISPs in a country where fixed internet infrastructure has not spread argue that they should be able to partner for a fee with online counterparts like Facebook or Google to offer certain services to consumers for free there is more to it than greed Net neutrality is essential to ensuring that the online marketplace of ideas continues to reward the best product but it is not a policy without costs It may slow down internet penetration in poorer more cut-off areas because companies will then be less inclined to invest in the creation of infrastructure The government will have to pursue alternate methods to achieve that objective On internet related issues neither the BJP nor the Congress has a robust record Both adopted indefensible positions on the now-defunct Section 66A of the IT act Their claim to being the guardian of internet freedom is therefore suspect Now they could make up for past mistakes by enshrining net neutrality in law But internet governance is an ongoing project — will either party take up the cudgels for say the right to privacy the enactment of which could curtail the state’s snooping capabilities For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related Newscomputer centre.
