Namaste WazirX Tribe!

Your safety is our utmost priority at WazirX. In this post, we aim to empower you with knowledge about the risks associated with Peer-to-Peer (P2P) trading. सावधान रहें, सतर्क रहें!

P2P trading has become a popular and efficient way for buyers and sellers to engage directly in crypto transactions. However, being aware of potential risks is essential to ensure a secure trading experience.

Digital Money Scams

P2P trading opens the door to digital money scams orchestrated by malicious actors. It’s crucial to exercise caution and verify the legitimacy of transactions to avoid falling victim to fraudulent activities.

Account Freezing by Authorities

Law enforcement authorities may freeze bank accounts associated with P2P trading for investigation purposes. While we prioritize your privacy and security, it’s important to be aware that certain transactions might draw the attention of authorities, leading to temporary freezes.

Tax Implications

P2P trades are sometimes subject to circumventing tax regulations. International exchanges may not adhere to the tax requirements set by the Indian government (1% TDS). Engaging in such transactions could potentially bring you under the scrutiny of tax authorities.
