Reliance Jio to develop its own cryptocurrency

"The team would work on various blockchain products", sources say. However, Reliance Jio did not give any response on this issue.

Even as the Indian government has cautioned against Bitcoin, a report suggests that Mukesh Ambani's Reliance Jio Infocomm Ltd might create its own cyptocurrency ' JioCoin'.

On one hand, the investment in cryptocurrencies is coming under the radar of Indian government, India's largest corporate conglomerate is planning to launch its own cryptocurrency named JioCoin in the near future.

Mukesh Ambani's older son Akash Ambani will lead the JioCoin project, and a 50-member team of young professionals will work on the blockchain technology required for the currency, the report said.

For the uninitiated, blockchain is basically a digital ledger which can store data, usually on the cloud and is a closed chain and as the links keep getting built, those building the chains get rewarded with the digital coins that can be traded or en-cashed by the owner.

While the JioCoin plan is still in initial stage, the official did tell the business daily as to how Reliance Jio could use the new technology. In simple terms, blockchain decentralizes information without it being copied.

However, the Indian government and the Reserve Bank of India have warned users against virtual currencies.

Millions of people started investing in cryptocurrency and making money in it.
