Crypto tax in India

Platforms such asand Clear have emerged to solve crypto taxation problems. International platforms such as CoinTracker and TaxBit are also looking to enter the Indian market. Binocs too intends to do the same. Besides the India market, Binocs is also launching its platform in the US, the UK, South Africa, and Australia.
