Decrypting crypto, today on Explained Live.

The much anticipated Bill to regulate cryptocurrencies has not been introduced in Parliament’s Winter Session, even as investments in these digital assets have continued to soar.

However, behind the gleam and glimmer of currencies like Bitcoin, Ether, Dogecoin, Tether, and Solano lies a technology that some believe will shape the next phase of Internet.
