How many Cryptocurrency Users in Pakistan ?

It is estimated that over 16 million people, 6.4% of Pakistan’s total population, currently own cryptocurrency or are involved in either trading crypto assets.

Many Pakistanis think crypto is the solution to their financial woes. The country is facing high inflation, heavy debts, and low foreign reserves. Industry experts have given Pakistan’s plan to ban crypto a thumbs down as they believe that banning crypto is no solution and Pakistan is likely to make a big mistake.
