Digital transactions become the first choice
Vipin Kumar, CEO of Technoloader Pvt Ltd, says that launching a digital rupee using blockchain is not a difficult task for the government. He said that people in India are doing digital transactions or payments in the form of UPI ID and bar code. At present, many people are giving more importance to digital transactions.
Transaction will be done easily
Let us tell you that digital currency created with blockchain technology will be transferred from one digital wallet to another like other crypto assets. To transfer money, punch in the wallet address of the recipient. This will be similar to today’s UPI transaction, where the value of money is transferred from one’s wallet or bank account to another.
