But in reality, cryptos are not untouchable as there are various activities that can influence the crypto-currency market.
The simple fact still remains that the market price and value of crypto-currency is driven by the increasing demands for these currencies. So whenever there is a threat to it’s validity in any country there is likely going to be a shake in the value of these currencies.
