What we’re building
[Ongoing] AMM Protocol: There have been unforeseen delays in some of the protocols that our DEX is dependent upon. This is preventing us from going live. At this moment, we don’t have an ETA on how long this will take. Be assured that we’re working very hard with the protocol team to expedite the process.
[Ongoing] New tokens: We’ll be listing more tokens on WazirX in the coming weeks. Got any suggestions? Please tweet to us @WazirXIndia
[Ongoing] Faster KYC: We have been seeing a sudden and huge surge in new signups on WazirX. We are working hard to ensure KYC approval is expedited.

Something to add
2020 was an important year in the history of Bitcoin due to three important factors – pandemic, Bitcoin halving, and institutional participation. But we’re just getting started, and more players will join in soon. 2021 is a crucial year for crypto in India and around the world. Wish you all a crypto filled new year, tribe!
