India, 24 January, 2024 – On this International Day of Education, WazirX proudly reaffirms its dedication to fostering knowledge and awareness within the crypto space.

In the past year, WazirX has conducted specialized training sessions for law enforcement agencies, and government bodies, including Cyber Crime Units [CCU] in Bhopal and Goa, Vigilance Directorate in Odisha, EOW in Bhubaneswar, National Investigation Agency, Lucknow Police Headquarters, JCCT Guwahati & Cyber Crime North East Region. The sessions covered a spectrum of topics, from the history of money and crypto to the application of Blockchain in Cyber Security.

Partnering with law enforcement agencies, WazirX has also helped solve key cases that involved Virtual Digital Assets (VDA) for illicit transactions. WazirX worked with Enforcement Directorates in various cities to crack down on such cases. It also demonstrated in real time how cases can be solved by tracing the movement of VDA across blockchain, and assisted law enforcement with ample information which was crucial in nabbing the culprits. In one of the cases, transactions worth over Rs 7,000 crore were carried out from over 300+ accounts with a fraudulent mobile gaming application, e-Nuggets in Kolkata. In another case, an MLM scheme was being run by an individual in Bhubaneswar using a digital token which the local community had started using and investing in. WazirX helped identify the fund movement and legal ramifications of such illicit transactions.

Notably, Mr. Ishan Kanungo, Legal Manager, WazirX, a pivotal figure in these initiatives, received acknowledgment from IGP Shri J.N Pankaj, IPS, Economic Offences Wing, Bhubaneswar, Odisha, for his significant contributions to advancing crypto investigations.

WazirX’s dedication transcends training sessions, extending to a variety of educational resources through its diverse channels:

In the fight against misinformation, WazirX had partnered with Gurukula Kangri, Haridwar (Deemed to be University) to offer a free certificate course on Blockchain. This initiative, under the #PadhegaDeshBadhegaDesh campaign, aimed to educate individuals about various aspects of decentralized technology, and create job opportunities in the crypto sector for Indian youth.

For two consecutive years, WazirX conducted training sessions at IIT Mumbai during their tech fest, empowering students with valuable insights into the dynamic world of cryptocurrencies.

Fortifying its commitment, WazirX established strategic partnerships with organizations such as, the Bharat Web3 Association, emphasizing blockchain awareness and ensuring the national and global dissemination of accurate information.

Recognizing the importance of educating and assisting users on Virtual Digital Assets (VDA) taxation, WazirX partnered with TaxNodes. This collaboration is a testament to WazirX’s comprehensive strategy to provide accurate and reliable information on navigating the complexities of crypto taxation.

Mr. Rajagopal Menon, VP – Marketing at WazirX, encapsulated the ethos, stating, “WazirX is more than just a platform; it’s a commitment to empower individuals with the knowledge and tools to navigate the evolving world of cryptos responsibly.
