WazirX is India's largest cryptocurrency exchange that provides a platform for trading various cryptocurrencies on its website and app. It was founded by Nischal Shetty in 2018 and has headquarters in Mumbai.
WazirX was founded in March 2018 by a computer engineer Nischal Shetty with two co-founders. Soon after WazirX was launched, the Government of India banned crypto trading in the country. Two days after the ban WazirX launched a peer-to-peer system which would link sellers and buyers directly and eliminate the need of financial institutions. At the point of its launch no other exchanges has this feature that helped the company to grow rapidly.
