But before giving the entire market in the hands of cryptocurrency we should also remember the drawbacks of crypto trading. Cryptocurrency comes with several disadvantages too.
Most people are not aware of how to use cryptocurrency and hence open themselves to the hacker. Digital currency technology is somewhat complex and therefore most of the people in India cant use it freely. Thus, it will reach in limited hands creating medium disparities. Moreover, in case of a false transaction, there is no way to get a refund of the amount paid. So, we can say that cryptocurrency comes as a mixed bag some part of it benefits us while others may put us in danger.
