In this article, we have tried to list the top 7 crypto influencers in India. Learning using crypto is also really tough as the technology is really new.
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 really tough as the technology is really new.
That’s where the crypto influencers or crypto KOL come into the picture. You can get them as your business or personal advisor and adopt the things first. Crypto influencers can be founders, traders, promoters, and even developers. Each group helps you understand a certain part of the crypto space. And the more time you spend reading their thoughts or spending time with them, the clearer the market becomes.
