CoinDCX had recently managed to raise $13.9 million in a Series B round which was held eight months ago. CoinDCX’s Sumit Gupta has further stated that to meet the rising demand of cryptocurrency in India as well as to scale and expand their work operations, the organization has decided to raise funds and has managed to raise $90 million in a Series C round.
CoinDCX at present hosts approximately 4 million users on its platform. According to CoinDCX’s CEO Sumit Gupta, the firm is looking forward to expanding its business and accelerating its work operations by increasing the number of users to approximately 50 million in near future. In a bid to solidify its prominence as one of the leading crypto exchanges, CoinDCX has also been consistently adopting strong digital marketing tactics and social media advertisements to appeal to the masses and attract global attention.
According to Gupta, the company is currently looking forward to hiring service personnel to help assist the firm to strengthen their work and is also considering plans to collaborate with a fintech firm to enhance their client base and set up a successful R&D unit to simplify crypto data and information analysis. CoinDCX is also working on introducing two premium products known as CoinDCX Prime and Cosmex to tend to wealthy clients (Prime) and offer seamless crypto to crypto user trading (Cosmex) in an efficient manner.
Indian cryptocurrency exchanges have been managing to raise significant funds despite facing regulatory pressure from the authorities.
