What are the Best Places to Buy Bitcoin in 2021

Cryptocurrency’s legal standing in India is uncertain but that hasn’t dampened the spirit of Indians from investing in the asset. As per an annual proliferation index put together by broker discovery and comparison platform BrokerChoose, India has the highest number of cryptocurrency owners globally in terms of an individual number of holders.

The United States and Russia were ranked a fairly distant second and third, respectively. In terms of number of crypto owners in terms of population, India has the fifth-highest crypto ownership rate, but the country’s sheer population blows other countries away.

ecently, Chainalysis published its 2021 Global Crypto Adoption Index, which placed India second out of 154 nations. The Chainalysis study also noted the role of big institutional investors in India who we’re key in driving volumes. Accounting for 42 percent of transactions from India, the report also recently revealed that India’s crypto industry increased 641 percent, with 59 percent of activity occurring on DeFi platforms. That said, since the nation lacks a legislative framework and regulatory requirements for cryptocurrencies are still a fair bit away, India is still far from realising its potential as a powerhouse nation in the space.
