Promoting Cryptocurrencies to the Indian Masses as Commercially Viable Alternatives

The Coinome exchange also details that traders in India can begin trading immediately due to the firm’s “instant e-KYC” service managed by Hatio Innovations Pvt. Ltd. The exchange operators detail they aim to support roughly 20 cryptocurrencies soon but for now the exchange deals in bitcoin (BTC), rupee (INR), and bitcoin cash (BCH).

“We would fundamentally like to provide Indian users with a secure and convenient means for buying and selling Bitcoins, alongside other cryptocurrencies,” says Coinome’s CEO, Vivek Steve Francis.

In one year, our target is to support up to 20 popular cryptocurrencies and promoting them to the Indian masses as commercially viable alternatives for building their digital assets.

Trading fees are charged on a per trade basis and a trade commission of 0.1% (maker) and 0.3% (taker) is taken. Minimum trade commissions are 0.1 INR, 0.000001 BTC, 0.000001 for BCH and deposits and withdrawals are free.
