Today the crypto space is seeing phenomenal growth. Several corporates and institutions have expressed their interest in Crypto assets, and some have even added Bitcoins to their balance sheet. We see new products getting launched frequently. New investors and enthusiasts are joining the race. In this rush, it’s important to remember that there is still room for growth, and the proper infrastructure is and has to be built around the Crypto class.
However, India is way ahead of many countries in terms of digital payments. This can give Indians leverage over the others to explore the potential of Crypto assets/digital currencies.
Pro tip: Crypto should be looked at as a brand new asset class. It’s a new technology. Do not invest more than what you can afford to lose. Investors have to be prepared to deal with the volatility and should have a good risk appetite. Small allocations are advisable for freshers.
