Yes we strongly feel Indian users will use Indian exchanges. The kind of ease, and sense of security, Indian crypto exchanges offer is second to none.


What is your take on Indian Crypto Tax Laws, Do you think its favorable? If not , are you in talks with govt to impose a better taxation on crypto?

The current crypto tax laws in India present both challenges and opportunities. While they provide a clear framework for taxation, the high tax rates can be seen as a deterrent for investors and traders. At KoinBX, we advocate for a more balanced approach to taxation that fosters innovation and growth in the crypto sector. We are actively engaging in discussions with government bodies to propose a more favorable tax regime that encourages participation while ensuring compliance and revenue for the state.

As an Indian exchange how you are managing the exchange liquidity, seems there are other Indian crypto exchanges are using international exchanges order books, Are you doing the same?

Liquidity is a critical aspect of any crypto exchange, and we take this very seriously at KoinBX. While some Indian exchanges rely on international order books to enhance liquidity, we have developed a hybrid approach. We ensure sufficient liquidity through a combination of our own reserves and strategic partnerships with other liquidity providers. This enables us to offer competitive trading conditions and meet the needs of our users effectively.

If the taxation in India doesn’t change, do you have plans to shift the business on ONCHAIN ( Making into Decentralized Exchange )

Taxation alone does not influence business decision. We firmly believe in the motto of democratizing crypto assets, and with regards to that, we will definitely consider stepping into DeFi space in future. At KoinBX, our mission is to be at the forefront of innovation and regulatory compliance in the Indian crypto market. We are committed to delivering a secure, efficient, and user-friendly platform that caters to the needs of Indian crypto enthusiasts.
