There will be no need to withdraw in the form of dollars for this. Sharp fluctuations in its prices are also a big concern.

If you look at the opinions and reports of experts regarding cryptocurrency, then most believe that in the year 2022, there may be more approval from governments regarding cryptocurrency transactions, although its pace may be more or less in different countries. The picture regarding cryptocurrency in India will be more clear and from the Reserve Bank to the government can find a way between a complete ban to permission with conditions. In fact, the government wants a solution to the security concerns regarding cryptocurrency. Hopefully 2022 can show many directions on this.
At the same time, if foreign experts are to be believed, after Tesla, many more companies can recognize payments in major cryptocurrencies. At the same time, crypto can get legal recognition in some other countries this year as well.
In the year 2022 also, there can be a lot of volatility in the currency. Some reports have given estimates of bitcoin reaching one lakh dollars. However, it has been clearly stated in most of the reports that there are many types of risks in the estimates of crypto currency, in which the government will get to see the effect of the move the most.
