Decision of Supreme Court came in Haste
Investment in Crypto is much easier than that in Gold. As for investing in Crypto one just has to go online and then buy Crypto rather than verifying it as one did in Gold.
Apart from this; since last year, rapid increase in investments in Crypto is cause of the decision of Supreme Court regarding Cryptocurrencies trading. Supreme Court had reversed the decision of Reserve Bank and removed Ban from Crypto trading. Although this currency has still not got legal recognition by Reserve Bank of India.
But as of now; it seems Indian population is willing to take risk by increasingly adopting this trading, despite of the fact that Cryptocurrency has not got any legal framework yet.
