The volume of crypto trading in cryptocurrency exchange rises in India as the ban on crypto trading is removed.

However, the Supreme Court of India overturned the RBI cryptocurrency trading ban from March 4. However, the lockdown due to COVID-19 is the main cause of increasing crypto trading volume in India.

Not only in India but also in other countries, the trading volume has increased during the lockdown period. This is a good sign of the adoption of crypto around the world. However, many development activities for making the transaction process easier and smoother by many front-line crypto companies also act as a catalyst for this increment of the trading volume. In the case of India, many new users also registered in trading exchanges.
