Bitcoin Surged Over 800% in FY21; The Sensex and the Nifty made some impressive double-digit gains in the financial year 2020-21 but the dizzying rise of the bitcoin, the world’s leading cryptocurrency, makes their journey look like a crawl at best.

Bitcoin surged 816 percent in FY21 from $6,412.5 on March 31, 2020 to $58,763.7 on March 31, 2021, data available with investing.com shows. After March 2020, bitcoin started to surge and even went past $61,000 briefly. Investors lapped up bitcoin as an alternative asset class, anticipating strong gains and also as a hedge against inflation.

As reported by Moneycontrol, the government is considering blocking internet protocol (IP) addresses of cryptocurrency companies and exchanges as a part of its bill to ban digital currencies.
