Namaste Tribe! March was a ray of hope for the Indian crypto ecosystem. While we were waiting for the crypto bill to be presented in the Parliament, our Finance Minister offered us clarity by saying that India is going to take a calibrated view on crypto. This approach will give us ample room to innovate and grow the crypto ecosystem. At WazirX, we’re always innovating and working hard to ensure that India not only participates in crypto, but also stays at the forefront of this revolution! ?

What happened last month

What we’re building

[Ongoing] NFT Marketplace: We’re launching decentralized NFT marketplace where you can buy, sell, trade digital assets and intellectual properties, including art pieces, audio files, videos, programs & even tweets. Pre-register for it here. Join our Telegram channel here.

[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

Something to add

As an industry, we’re reaching out to the Government and the regulators in the country. We have solutions to all the concerns around crypto and at the same time we can ensure India stays competitive in this sector. In the meantime, I request YOU to do your bit, and keep busting the myths and misinformation around crypto. Let’s win!

Jai Hind ??
