When WazirX was launched back in 2018, no one could have predicted the heights it would reach. Now, on the occasion of its fifth birthday, it’s worth looking back at all the milestones it has achieved and how it has revolutionized the world of crypto.

From the moment WazirX was launched, it became clear that it was a platform that was determined to make a difference – to make crypto accessible to every Indian The introduction of the WRX token was a game-changer, providing users with a new level of access and opportunity in the world of crypto. With the highest referral commission payout, WazirX quickly became one of the most popular platforms in India.

In July 2018, WazirX made a significant stride in the crypto market by launching the world’s first auto-matching P2P engine. This P2P engine is designed to make Fiat <> Crypto conversion cheaper, faster, and simpler for everyone. This innovative feature came at a time when the RBI ban came into effect, but WazirX P2P came to the rescue. The ban didn’t stop Indians from trading crypto! WazirX’s P2P engine helped to keep the trading process going smoothly, ensuring that people could still trade cryptos without facing any hurdles.

WazirX didn’t stop there. CEO Nischal Shetty’s Twitter campaign called #IndiaWantsCrypto showed the platform’s dedication to expanding the crypto market in India. As more people started to embrace the potential of crypto, WazirX stepped up to meet the demand.

But perhaps the biggest moment in WazirX’s history came in 2020. The Supreme Court of India overturned the banking ban, providing a huge boost to the country’s crypto market. WazirX wasted no time in capitalizing on this new opportunity, partnering with educational institutions to launch the WazirX Warrior Programs and Pan-IIT trading workshops.

The year 2021 was a landmark year for WazirX. WazirX began the year with a customer base of over 1 million, while its monthly trading volume was $2.4 billion USD, and its total trade volume was a staggering $44 billion. The introduction of the QuickBuy feature made it easier than ever for users to get involved in crypto trading, further cementing WazirX’s status as the go-to exchange for crypto enthusiasts. By the end of the year, WazirX surpassed all expectations, achieving an impressive milestone of 10 million customers. 

But WazirX’s accomplishments in 2021 went beyond just business success. The platform showed its commitment to social responsibility by donating Rs. 8 crores for COVID relief, supporting the community during tough times. WazirX also proved its dedication to transparency and accountability by releasing its first-ever Transparency Report, with three more soon after.

As 2022 dawned, WazirX didn’t rest on its laurels. Instead, it continued to innovate and expand its reach, introducing new features and initiatives. The Blockchain Course #PadhegaDeshBadhegaDesh was launched to educate and empower users, while the introduction of the Blockchain Park in Goa provided a hub for the crypto community. Additionally, the publication of Coin Reports in collaboration with Crebaco and IntoTheBlocks demonstrated WazirX’s commitment to providing valuable insights to its users.

WazirX didn’t forget about the little things either. The introduction of the Address Book Feature for crypto withdrawals, the Learn & Earn campaign series, the Gift Card and Nominee feature, and the availability of the Profit and Loss statement showed that WazirX was always listening to its users and striving to improve their experience.
