What crypto exchanges are saying about the current market scenario

Kunji founder Anurag Dixit offered his take, “As the crypto industry matures, regulations will play a key role in shaping its future. Governments and authorities are recognizing the complexity and specific nature of the space and are moving towards the differentiated treatment of top market cap assets such as Bitcoin, NFTs and Defi tokens. A one-size-fits-all approach is not effective, a tailored and asset-specific approach is required to foster innovation and growth while ensuring regulations are appropriate.”
