As per the warning notice:

‘’A few cases of investors of cryptocurrencies being cheated have been reported in Tamil Nadu. Cases have been registered and accused were arrested. The public is hereby advised not to deal with cryptocurrencies including Bitcoins, Ethereum, Ripple and more. Those trading in virtual currencies were doing so at their own risk, given that the Central bank has not given a licence or authorisation to any company to deal in such cryptocurrencies.’’

The special unit of Police, in a press release, also said that cryptocurrency is not the currency per the rules and regulations of the government. It is the same like the assets such as gold or other precious metals. Moreover, it is also non-legal equity as cryptocurrency is not backed by any centralized authority.

Due to the lack of knowledge about the blockchain and digital money, common folks of India considered it a very risky and non-secure asset. However, it is true that the risk level is very high due to volatile nature. But in terms of security, the concept is wrong as digital coins work through secure public ledger-that is not possible to hack.
