There are around 15 to 20 million active cryptocurrency investors in India; it is only obvious to us to have some of the best minds in the crypto platform.

The technology of Blockchain and Cryptocurrency was in a kind of hidden mode for almost a decade. But the situation has changed as the governments are actively discussing crypto regulation (Indian crypto regulation was always trending), merchants accepting crypto payment, people are considering crypto as a movable safe digital asset, etc.

 But still, for most, the crypto space is huge and zero idea zone. Learning about how to accept crypto or build a business using crypto is hurting due to a lack of knowledge. Learning using crypto is also tough as the technology is really new.
