We launched CoinSwitch Kuber in India during the lockdown in June, and onboarded over 1 million users in just six months. The journey from 1 million to 10 million has taken us just 9 months. We aim to accelerate this growth by offering continued simplicity, security, the best rates and experience to our users.”

“CoinSwitch Kuber is on a mission to bring financial freedom to all Indians by democratising crypto investments and eliminating all complexities from the process of crypto buying and selling. CoinSwitch Kuber has educational crypto content on the platform itself, ensuring that both novice and experienced investors make informed decisions. Reaching 10 million users to become the largest and the most preferred crypto platform in India indicates that we are on the right path towards building trust among Indians to achieve our inclusive goals. We want to bring the revolutionary technology of crypto and blockchain to billions in our nation,” he added.
