With around 15-20 million active cryptocurrency investors in India, it is clear that they have the best minds in crypto platforms.
Blockchain and cryptocurrency technology has been in a kind of hidden mode for almost a decade. However, as the government actively discusses cryptocurrency regulation (Cryptocurrency regulation in India has always been a trend), merchants accept cryptocurrency payments, and people see cryptocurrency as a safe digital asset that can be moved. The situation is changing.
But still, for most people, the crypto space is a huge, zero-idea zone. Since the technology is really new, cryptography is also very difficult to learn.
This is where cryptocurrency influencers and cryptocurrency KOLs come into play. You can get them as business or personal advisors and hire them first. Cryptocurrency influencers can be founders, traders, promoters and even developers. Each group helps you understand a particular part of the crypto space. And the more you read their thoughts and spend time with them, the clearer the market becomes.
