Raftaar’s manager Ankit Khanna has been an influential person when it comes to dealing in cryptocurrency.

Ankit Khanna remarked, “In my opinion, music will be one of the first industries to be entirely and thoroughly disrupted through blockchain. The artiste can now go directly to the people in every single way without the need for mediators. Blockchain has the potential to expedite a seamless experience for anyone involved with generating or interacting with music.

“It’s amazing to welcome the upcoming digital transaction process by the new generation. Raftaar has always encouraged the upcoming generation and becoming a voice for them,” Ankit shared.
