The Panel discussion dwelled upon: Adding Crypto to India Stack- a step towards reducing the MSME financing gap? India has a unique opportunity to close the SME financing gap by allowing validated investors through Indian and global exchange which will help bridge the SME financing gap of as much as $500 million. This will create a new class of global crypto investors, by using everything the India Stack offers – particularly UPI, Aadhaar, GST, and the informational collateral they generate – to help connect the trillion-dollar crypto economy to capital-hungry Indian entrepreneurs. Are we at the dawn of a brand-new era of enterprise finance?
