    • EI Salvador’s decision to make Bitcoin a legal tender will boost financial inclusion in their country as the majority of the population does not have access to formal banking channels, according to Shivam Thakral, CEO of BuyUcoin, IANS reported.
    • “In India, our approach towards crypto is different. We don’t see it as a legal tender but as an asset class. Indian investors have shown their faith in crypto even during the massive price fluctuations because they have an investment horizon of 2-3 years,” Thakral said in a statement recently. We are eagerly waiting for CBDC (central bank digital currency) in India which will open up new avenues of growth for the digital asset industry,” Thakral was quoted as saying by IANS.
