As blockchain offers a promising and affordable option to protect users' assets, entrepreneurs and influencers can operate their businesses in the metaverse with endless, immediate opportunities from anywhere in the world. Like most of the DeepTechs in the world, India is blessed with an abundance of talent in blockchain technology, which combines with the creative Indian artists, not to mention the country's huge market, a rare thanks to our huge population.
