In an interaction with CNBC TV 18 on Wednesday, former Reserve Bank of India (RBI) governor Raghuram Rajan said that among 6,000 cryptocurrency which exist today, most of them will die and only a “handful” will survive.
“Do we really need 6,000 cryptocurrencies to do payments? One or two, may be a handful, that is going to survive to be used for payments even if the technology is so useful that it is a substitute for cash and currency. That would suggest that most cryptos are unlikely to survive with high values going forward,” Rajan was quoted as saying by CNBC-TV18.
