CrossTower Launches Trading Platform in India: Report

Thirty-five people have been hired to operate the new unit in India, with plans to increase headcount to 100 in the coming months.

Digital currency exchange CrossTower has launched a trading platform in India, seemingly shrugging off any ongoing regulatory uncertainties there.

  • CrossTower has hired 35 people to operate its new unit in India and plans to increase headcount to 100 in the next six to nine months, Reuters reported Tuesday.
  • The move comes despite ongoing regulatory uncertainty about the future of cryptocurrency in India. The government was planning to present a bill in the current session of parliament that could have seen an outright ban on crypto in the country.
  • This, however, has yet to occur, and the government’s plans for crypto remain uncertain.
  • CrossTower co-founder and CEO Kapil Rathi has said the company is taking “a calculated risk” in entering India.
  • Crypto remains popular in the country, with India recently ranking second in Chainalysis’s Global Crypto Adoption Index for 2021.
  • Major crypto exchanges have been plotting expansion into India in recent months, with Kraken, Bitfinex and KuCoin all reportedly seeking information about the market and potential entry points.
