Although through irregular lockdown, restrictions on transportation, and shrinkage of developmental activities, a recessionary phase has been initiated into the economy, it is safe to say that the green shoots of recovery are being witnessed. Moreover, companies are looking to recover and productivity is on the upward rise. In such a scenario, digital transactions have become the norm with people averse to go physically to the banking institutions and ask for the deposit amount or withdrawal amount to be charged. Moreover, all banking transactions are feasible to be made on the online platform through the digital transfer of money. This system of digitization in currency has brought about the inception of cryptocurrency or digitized currency.
