    It is better to sell out all cryptos and wait for clarity. Alternately, we can buy US stocks like Microstrategy, which are a proxy for crypto.

    good news for dollar.because India has decided that crypto will not be possible in India. actually Indian Black Market are using 12-22 types of crypto and small investors trapped with 2.6 billion $ lossed last year, and crazy people also trapped by Indian exchange and broker. I think it is good decision for near future.
