The Supreme Court of India, recently, struck down the RBI’s circular for banks regarding cryptocurrency. This has open the way for the people who are interested in crypto trading in India. Earlier, Indians were not much aware of cryptocurrency, but slowly it got popular among people. At present, we can find many Indians who are enthusiastic crypto-traders, they buy cryptocurrency, sell it. India now has its own blockchain exchange for crypto-trading.

In the year 2019, when the RBI issued a circular to the banks for not trading cryptocurrencies, many of the exchanges suffered and shut down their business in India. But as soon as the SC declared that the banking ban was unconstitutional the exchanges resumed their businesses. The best thing that happened to the crypto-exchanges is that now, more people are investing in it.

Although there are some Indians who do not feel safe to invest in cryptocurrency because of its decentralized nature, it is not so, investing in any cryptocurrency is safe.

There are many countries in the world, that are using cryptocurrencies because they consider it as a store of value.

Let’s just see it that way, if it would have been unsafe then companies like Facebook, Google, JPMorgan and Goldman Sachs, might not invest in cryptocurrencies and promote it.

Good To Invest In Bitcoin




According to research, around 40 percent of the Indians do not have a bank account and because of that, they have to depend on cash payments. The reason those people do not have a bank account is, either they do not have their fixed address or any relevant information required to open an account. In that case, Bitcoin may help those people, as it does not need a bank account. The person would just need to register themself on any exchange and then could make payment anywhere in the world.

Till date, around 600,000 Indians have invested in Bitcoin because they feel that with the help of it they can make a quick, cheap and secure payment.

In the coming years, we will notice that many Indian industries would also start accepting the crypto payment.

If you still are in confusion, whether to invest in Bitcoin or not, then think that you by making an investment in Bitcoin or any other cryptocurrencies, you will be adopting a new way of transaction.
