Investors risk appetite went on safe-haven cryptocurrency such as USDT and QC due to market uncertainty caused by a senior India government official that reportedly stated that the country will be proposing a stringent law banning the use of crypto even as a holding asset.

From Sources, the bill, if passed, can be one of the world’s strictest actions against crypto and would not only criminalize possession, issuance, mining, trading, and transfer of crypto but also leave a big dent in the crypto market in Asia.
