- About 2.75 million people in the US invest in cryptocurrencies
- China has officially banned cryptocurrency trading since 2019 but operates online.
The Central Government has successfully awakened against the growing cryptocurrency empire in India and is going to take appropriate action in a timely manner. Given the rapid rise in investment in cryptocurrencies in the country, alarm bells are ringing on many fronts besides the economy. One of the secrets behind cryptocurrency is that it does not currently fall into any currency, investment medium or asset category. This means that those who are investing money in cryptocurrency cannot be called investors.
Surprisingly, the number of people investing in cryptocurrencies in India has crossed 100 million in a very short period of time and this figure is much higher than the number of investors connected to the Indian stock market. This means that in the last 100-125 years, the number of investors in the country’s stock markets has reached close to 80 million, while cryptocurrency has managed to attract 10.07 million investors in just a few years. About 2.75 million people in the US invest in cryptocurrencies. India and the United States, which are number one and number two, have a huge gap between these figures.
Amid the temptation to invest in cryptocurrencies to make more money in less time, they are completely unaware of the basics of what they are buying and why. The motto behind their investment is the same that investors should make a lot of money by selling at very high prices in the coming days, months or even years. Cryptocurrency is being invested without any kind of understanding, sale or analysis of the situation.
Cryptocurrency does not have any kind of control i.e. is unregulated, it is quite possible to be used in improper activities. Neither the government nor the central bank has any control over it. In these circumstances, the government of India needs to get out of the cryptocurrency before it can introduce a bill on cryptocurrency in Parliament and enact it into law, otherwise the price hike could erode at any moment and the boom bubble could burst at any moment.
There are many countries around the world that have banned cryptocurrency, some of which have recognized it. As far as banning or controlling cryptocurrencies in India is concerned, India has the highest number of people investing in cryptocurrencies.
