5 Rising Crypto Influencers in India

3 mins

Cryptocurrency is a digital asset, virtual money that can be used to make online transactions. It is built on blockchain technology which is privately owned and doesn't come under the purview of the government’s authority. 

However, in the 2022 budget, the Union government of India imposed 30% taxation on crypto profits, which led to a brief decline of 60-80% in trade on compliant Indian exchanges. On a brighter note, by bringing cryptocurrency in India under the tax net, the government's positions on crypto became clear. At least there was not going to be a blanket ban on this alternate exchange market, which was ongoing speculation since 2020. 

In fact,  The Reserve Bank of India has launched its own digital currency 

Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC), which is at the pilot stage of its development and implementation. The primary motive behind this move is to protect users from the uncertainty of the crypto market and give them a secure and legal form of digital currency. 

Despite the uncertainty and speculation around cryptocurrency in India, the interest and enthusiasm for this decentralized system of transactions have not taken a beating. As per Statista report, revenue in the cryptocurrency market in India is projected to reach US$222.70 m by the end of 2023 and thereafter will grow at an annual growth rate of 9.83%.

People are constantly looking for ways to invest their money, and investing in cryptocurrency in India may seem like a profitable one. But the crypto landscape is constantly evolving and for an average person, understanding its complexities can be quite daunting.

This is where the role of crypto influencers becomes relevant. Crypto influencers are individuals who have gained significant influence and following within the cryptocurrency community through their expertise, knowledge sharing,  insights, and promotion of various influencer marketing campaigns dealing with cryptocurrencies and blockchain
