Earlier, the Head of Treasury and Executive Vice President Rukhsana Narejo of Sindh Bank while addressing the seminar organized by the Civic and Social Responsibility Society of the University of Karachi and Sindh Bank on financial literacy for students and cryptocurrency shared that the digital currency has grabbed the attention across the globe and has gained legal status in some parts of the world whereas it is still ill-legal in most countries.

She informed the audience about how cryptocurrency works around the world and what kind of risk factor is involved while dealing with it in different countries. According to her, the digital currency has attracted a lot of investment, and its use is common in some countries but is still not considered the main option to do business.

Rukhsana Narejo observed that although Pakistan has banned digital currency but people are still investing their money in cryptocurrency and as they do not have efficient information and knowledge about digital currency chances are high that they could face financial losses while making deals in it. The event was held at the Arts Auditorium.

The Civic and Social Responsibility Society is one of the official societies of the University of Karachi and is a part of the KU Students Advisors’ Office.
