A recent funding round has just added quite a bit to an Indian crypto exchange’s coffers.

Mumbai-based exchange CoinCDX announced on March 24 it had received $3 million in new funding. The Series A round was led by Bain Capital Ventures, Polychain, and HDR Group.

CEO and Co-founder of CoinDCX, Sumit Gupta, said that the funding would provide the means for the exchange to further the mass adoption of crypto in India


Leading the way for digital assets in India

The investment comes right on the heels of a Supreme Court decision effectively overturning a ban on cryptocurrency by the Bank of India. With fewer restrictions in place for the expansion of crypto across the country, CoinDCX intends to use the funds for developing new products, marketing activities, research and development, and human resources.

Established in 2018, CoinDCX is the largest crypto exchange in India and has partnered with global exchanges including OKEx, Binance, and Huobi. The exchange recently announced a $1.3 million venture to increase awareness and adoption of cryptocurrencies in India.


India coming around to crypto?

India has had a complicated relationship with crypto. The number of exchanges is growing in response to the Supreme Court decision, with others expanding their features. The Indian exchange Unocoin is planning to launch crypto derivatives on its platform within a few months.

However, many are still concerned over the future of the industry with the nation having stymied many efforts to expand the crypto industry locally. Developing a digital rupee is still on hold.
