The year 2021 was a great one for the cryptocurrency industry. From institutions getting involved with cryptocurrencies and raising millions of dollars to invest in the space to the thriving NFTs, the space is exploding. Bitcoin has seen a number of new all-time high prices, as well as increased institutional buy-in from some major corporations. Ethereum, the second-largest cryptocurrency, also recently reached a new all-time high. It's a hot topic not only between investors, but also in popular culture, thanks to everyone from long-term investors like Elon Musk to that kid from high school on Facebook.

Bitcoin, a digital currency administered by a single controller sent from user to user on the peer-to-peer bitcoin network without mediators. Bitcoinsare designed as a reward for a method known as mining. They can be traded for other currencies, products, and services, but the real-world price of the coins is highly expansive.
Billions of people around the world use cryptocurrencies, yet no country owns it or controls it. Cryptocurrency is also somewhat like the Internet. It is not owned or managed by a country or a bank. They are not issued by the country's central bank, in our case, the Reserve Bank Of India, as legal tender. Neither are they recognized by the Government as legal tender, nor are they regulated by the RBI. There are no laws that prohibit or allow trading in crypto. In that sense, cryptocurrency is like any other asset class such as gold, commodities, or real estate. People trade in gold without the Government creating a law for it. The same is the status of cryptocurrency at the moment. It isn’t a legitimate currency in the conventional sense, which means that you cannot spend cryptocurrency to buy or sell anything in India. The currency of a country is legal tender upheld by a sovereign guarantee. In India, only the RBI can issue any currency.
