We at CoinDCX are delighted to share with you that we have raised ₹100 Crore ($13.9 Million) in our Series B funding round which will be used to accelerate our initiatives in driving mass crypto adoption in India and the world. We would like to thank our investors DG, Jump Capital, Block.one, Uncorrelated Ventures, Mehta Ventures and Alex Pack, and our returning investors such as Coinbase Ventures and Polychain Capital for participating in this round and trusting in our vision. The financing represents a giant leap forward in our efforts to create more advanced crypto-based products, simplify investing into cryptos, modernize the financial space, and hiring some of the top talents in the industry.
We at CoinDCX believe in removing each and every impediment which stops people from investing and trading cryptocurrencies. Our products, features, partnerships, academy, and campaigns are a clear testament of the steps we have taken in this direction. As acceptance of cryptocurrencies is becoming a norm globally, we will strengthen our #TryCrypto movement with our aspirations in becoming the safest and easiest place to invest in cryptos alongside creating sophisticated and professional products and services creating a pathway for legacy investors as well. Soon, we are going to launch a new app which is going to be the simplest Bitcoin app in the world where Indians will be able to invest in top cryptocurrencies legally, easily and safely with zero fee.
Sumit Gupta, Our CEO and co-founder of CoinDCX, “This has been the most exciting year for CoinDCX. While the pandemic forced everyone indoors, CoinDCX scaled up exponentially and continues to do so. Our team tripled in number from 30 in March to 90 in December, and we are continuing to hire aggressively. The funds raised in the past as well as the current round, will help us develop our newly launched crypto to INR app, CoinDCX and make it the easiest and the safest way to onboard the everyday Indian into cryptocurrencies. The new app, is a flagship product from our #TryCrypto movement which aims to onboard 50 million Indians into the cryptocurrency market.”

With a seasoned team that is growing, CoinDCX is poised to strengthen its position as the largest crypto company in India.”
Brendan Blumer, the CEO of Block.One, the tech company producing the EOS.IO distributed ledger software, said, “Leading up to 2020, interest in digital assets was growing consistently as more investors explored these new liquidity options. With the global events this year, we’re seeing this trend accelerate exponentially, as both institutional and individual investors embrace these new asset classes to diversify their portfolios. With the increased interest in digital currencies, CoinDCX’s role in making cryptocurrencies accessible to everyone in the world’s second most populous country is even more vital. We’re excited to be partnering with some of the smartest investors in blockchain and crypto to support mass-scale digital asset adoption.”
