Several crypto exchanges have lowered their fees for Indians.

Earlier this year, the Supreme Court overturned the Reserve Bank of India’s (RBI) crypto ban. Following the said move, the Indian crypto sector has started to grow with more Indians getting interested in bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. Also, local crypto exchanges are seeing increased trade volumes and signups during the nationwide lockups due to coronavirus.

Among the factors one considers when choosing a cryptocurrency exchange is the fee structure. Several bitcoin and crypto exchanges in India have already lowered their fees including Wazirx and Zebpay.

According CEO Nischal Shetty, the crypto exchange charges 0.1% when the transaction is paid through WRX.

“We lowered our USDT fees to make it zero fees for transfer to Binance,” Shetty told Bitcoin.com. “So effectively maximum users in India now enjoy 0 fee USDT transfer from Wazirx to Binance and for other withdrawals, the fee has been lowered to 1.5 USDT. We’re planning to lower withdrawal fees for other tokens as well over time.”

Zebpay, one of the largest cryptocurrency exchanges in India has recently relaunched in the country. The exchange also announced on Friday that it would be waving “the normal 1.5% netbanking fee through April 10.” Using the platform, customers can trade BTC-USDT, ETH-USDT, XRP-USDT, ETH-BTC & TUSD-USDT without trading fees this month. At present, the exchange charges 0.00049 BTC for withdrawal fees.

Meanwhile, Coindcx charges 0.0005 BTC for withdrawals. The crypto exchange is among the firms that offer competitive fees in India.

“We have been competitive since [the] start as a policy as we believe in crypto adoption. As we have been maintaining the best price, compared to some competitors, we didn’t have to bring the fees down,” said Coindcx Co-founder and CEO Sumit Gupta.

Other popular crypto exchanges in India are Cashaa, Pocketbits, Giottus, and Bitbns. Pocketbits advertises 0% trading fees and a withdrawal fee of 0.0003 BTC. On the other hand, Giottus’ withdrawal fee is 0.0001 BTC while Bitbns charges 0.0005 BTC for the same service.

Meanwhile, Ajit Tripathi, an entrepreneur, crypto co-host and columnist at CoinDesk, was hoping that the overturning of RBI’s crypto ban will unlock the important source of financing for India’s blockchain technology startups and bring one million developers from India alone to blockchain and crypto platforms.

FRAUDULENT BROKERS - RBOPTIONS

Binary options involve predicting the movements of commodity, asset or index prices over a short time. Although they may be a legitimate financial product with many licensed firms trading in them, binary options are speculative, high risk products that are almost impossible to predict, even for professionals. There are groups of scammers who use binary options to steal your money.
I would like to drop off few words about my negative and teaching experience with RB Options company. Like many others, I was contacted by the broker in 2019, and despite the fact I didn't have any knowledge about financial markets, got convinced by Peter Oaks, that I'll have all his assistance in order to make successful trades. Alright, sounds good, why not to try?
After putting a large amount on my account, ive watched how my balance would go higher and higher. Ofcourse seeing this proof of how im good at it, my manager Peter made me invest more over 35,000 Euro. After a couple weeks of such magnificent trading, my account ended up over 95,000 Euro. An excellent opportunity to file a withdraw, no? No!! They released only 12,000 in order to trick me invest more 100,000. I didnt have such money at the moment and I was put on hold. Weeks after nobody would even answer my calls or my emails. It became very clear, that Ive become a victim of a huge and shameless scam. Time passed by and I was growing disappointed and very angry with my own naive.
I had paid Birman Law 10% of my principle loss with nothing to show for it, I think the algorithm of these programs are designed for us to lose money in some way. If you flushed your money down the toilet with a binary broker then just learn your lesson, it took me 3 months to figure out how to get my money back after made failed attempts; I contacted several lawyers but it was all waste of time and money, they couldn't render an inch of help. I later came across a certified binary options recovery expert through a family member , I was able to hire him to recover my money within 15days from the brokers(RB options), he was able to retrieve my funds successfully . If you have found yourself in same situation as me you can contact the expert on '''instantfundsrecovery (A T ) protonml (cm)" just in case you find yourself in same situation; I can assure he would be able to help you just as he helped me. Be cautious of where and how you invest
