The The crypto market has observed some favorable signs, mainly due to the ease in macroeconomic activity. This has triggered the cost to increase. MoreoverThe crypto market’s overall trading volume has risen to record highs. June 2021.

What Indian Investors Should Consider During The Crypto Rally?

The potential increase in crypto values have attracted both high-net-worth individuals and institutional investors to capture some short-term trading gains. It is important to stick to these simple rules and strategies while investing:

  • Diversify your portfolio by investing in different types of investments.
  • Spread your risk of experiencing a possible downturn in any crypto.
  • Conduct your own research (DYOR) and keep up to date with industry news.
  • Don’t rush into making decisions or be pulled in by the hype.
  • Maintain a disciplined approach to investing.
  • Prioritize security by keeping your crypto assets safe in secure wallets with backups and security measures.

Experts suggest caution as any new development in the crypto space could cause a shift. According to the research team of one of India’s largest crypto exchanges, CoinDCX, “This momentum can be treated as a mid-bear market rally. Investors should limit small-cap token exposure and deploy the majority to projects that are fundamentally strong and continuously developing.”

Raj Karkara, COO of Zebpay, recommends an education-first approach as it is essential to stay informed on news and technical analysis. “It is essential that investors fully comprehend the fundamentals of a crypto token before investing. There are various investment strategies that can be used during a rally, so investors can make sensible decisions.”

The CEO and founder of Taxnodes, Avinash Shekhar, encourages Indian investors not to invest based on popular stories. Instead, they should take the time to understand the fundamentals of crypto. “Investors should start with small amounts and gradually increase their exposure by making educated investment decisions rather than wagering on speculation. Cryptocurrencies are currently a volatile asset class, but with the right innovation and regulations, the potential of the Web3 space will be unleashed and the asset class will mature.”

Undoubtedly, the crypto markets are recovering from the crash, yet there is still a sense of “fear” within the crypto community. It is my strong belief that the sentiment is still mixed. The Indian crypto industry was hoping for some tax relief from the government, however, the Union Budget 2023, announced on February 1, 2023, did not mention any tax relief for the sector. There are still questions about the tax rates and regulatory framework in India. But, given the global macroeconomic environment, trading volumes have increased. Indian exchanges are expected to experience an uptick from rock bottom prices. Investors have been advised to continue trading cautiously and vigilantly as it is uncertain if the crypto rally will remain.
