Now that the cryptocurrency industry has started gaining mainstream adoption, even third world companies are making full use of the situation. When it comes to information, technology, computing, algorithms, there is one third world country that is currently on the frontlines.
Over the past couple of years, the government of India has displayed a very non-serious kind of attitude towards the cryptocurrency industry. Even after so many obstacles and problems, the cryptocurrency industry has still managed to thrive and increase its user-base in the country.
There are many India-based cryptocurrency exchanges that have claimed that they are catering a very decent amount of users. It has been claimed by the crypto-exchanges from India that the majority of the investors they have are from the retail sectors.
