At this event, Nirmala Sitharaman encouraged accountants to use Web3, Blockchain, AI, and similar concepts for better financial management.
Sitharaman Backs Web3
The finance minister urged all accountants to rely on Web3 using Blockchain technology, cloud computing, and data analytics for better financial handling. Sitharaman believes Web3 could help accountants collect, assess, and interpret data more efficiently. She also claims Web3 could help accountants overcome various issues in ensuring efficient financial management.
India’s Gradual Shift in Perception of Crypto
There are several reasons why the crypto market failed to operate or set a base in India. One of the primary reasons was the lack of awareness and skills in crypto trading. Such an issue mainly stemmed from the lack of financial literacy. Moreover, the finance minister also encouraged the development of comprehensive crypto laws to regulate crypto activities.
However, with Sitharaman’s recent statement, the change of stance on crypto is evident. While previously, the minister disclosed her and the country’s constant concern about money laundering activities carried out through crypto transactions. However, with the minister encouraging accountants to rely on Web3, the evident shift in stance is undeniable.
India Might Use Web3 for Its Operations
With the recent declaration of Nirmala Sitharaman, the government’s trust in Web3 and Blockchain technologies is evident. This also marks the way for crypto in India.
If the country encourages using Web3 and Blockchain in financial handling and other activities, it is bound to develop more trust in people. Thus, India might soon overcome its grey zone in Blockchain operations and show a positive move.
