Namaste Tribe! January was a rocking start to the new year, and we hope that the rest of 2021 is equally amazing. We hit some great milestones in this month like crossing 1 Billion USDT volume, and many more. ?

[Done] 1 new USDT pair: In January, we added a new token in our USDT market. You can now buy, sell, trade SUSHI in our USDT market. Happy trading!

[Done] WRX/INR trading contest: To celebrate the milestone of crossing 1 million users on WazirX, we conducted a trading competition for WRX/INR. It was a 36-hour long trading marathon where we gave away ₹2,00,000 worth WRX among top 80 traders.
[Done] 3 new WRX pairs: In January, we also added three new token listings in our WRX market. You can now buy, sell, trade EOS, LTC, and LINK in our WRX market for ZERO fee. Happy trading!

What we’re building
[Ongoing] AMM Protocol: There have been unforeseen delays in some of the protocols that our DEX is dependent upon. This is preventing us from going live. At this moment, we don’t have an ETA on how long this will take. Be assured that we’re working very hard with the protocol team to expedite the process.
[Ongoing] New tokens: We’ll be listing more tokens on WazirX in the coming weeks. Got any suggestions? Please tweet to us @WazirXIndia
[Ongoing] Faster KYC: We have been seeing a sudden and huge surge in new signups on WazirX. We are working hard to ensure KYC approval is expedited.

Something to add
The last few weeks have been concerning for the Indian crypto community, but I request you to not panic. WazirX will ensure that you are always informed. Please keep using the hashtag #IndiaWantsCrypto in all your tweets. This is the first time all of us are dealing with regulatory processes. Regulations take time and effort. But we must stick together, and do this for our country, and for a better future. Let’s not give up till we reach our destination!
