After the cryptocurrency market crash in 2021, he opened a tea stall in Marathahalli.
- He has put up a placard showcasing the INR to USD rate at his tea stall for those who wish to pay in crypto.
- He said that adding Bitcoin as an option for payment has made his business grow as 20 customers a week on average use cryptocurrency to pay.
Rags-to-riches-to-rags: Although the cryptocurrency market crash left Saini back to where he started, he refused to take money from his parents, resulting in the setting up of his tea stall. With the help of Bitcoin payments, he has revived his fortunes.
