Crypto investors in many countries are an unstoppable force and are challenging traditional financial systems. Governments around the world are taking notice of the trillion-dollar investment in cryptos and financial regulators are trying to contain its growth. However, despite the opposition, crypto markets are thriving by attracting new investors for the first time every day.

From America to Asia and Africa, crypto markets have spread their wings far and wide in every country in the world. The United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) has published a report highlighting a list of countries with the most crypto investors.

While Ukraine and Russia remain in the lead, India ranks first in terms of crypto investors by population. India’s population is 1.38 billion and 7.3% of crypto investors make 100.4 million holders. India has the largest number of crypto investors in the world. However, the Indian government imposed a 30% tax on crypto transactions along with a 1% TDS.

Indian investors find the tax laws to be draconian, as the average Joe ends up with little or no profit. Furthermore, Indian financial regulators, the Enforcement Directorate (ED), are investigating crypto trading platforms and have also seized some of their bank accounts.
