According to broker discovery and comparison platform BrokerChooser, India tops in terms of number of crypto owners.

Let us tell you that the Government of India is making a special plan regarding cryptocurrency in the country. The Modi government has decided to introduce the Cryptocurrency and Regulation of Official Digital Currency Bill in the Parliament. However, information about this bill is not yet public. This bill will legally regulate the use of cryptocurrencies in the country.
Currently, Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are outside the legal framework in India. However, they cannot be termed as illegal as they have not yet been authorized for use by any central authority in the country. Cryptocurrency is currently outside the scope of any guidelines, regulations or regulations. Because of this bitcoin and altcoin transactions are risky as disputes arising from these exchanges will not be legally bound.
Reserve Bank of India (RBI) Governor Shaktikanta Das recently said that the central bank has conveyed its concerns regarding cryptocurrencies to the government. Now the government has to look into it. He said that now it is for the central government to decide how to deal with the proliferation of such platforms.
