5 Best Bitcoin Exchange in India 2020


Let’s today discuss Best Bitcoin exchanges in India in 2020.

After India’s Supreme Court verdict revoking the ban of cryptocurrency imposed by the RBI, cryptocurrency exchanges are now able to directly take deposits and process withdrawal without any hassle from debit/credit card and bank account.

Prior to the verdict most exchanges either halted their operations in India or used the P2P system for deposit and withdrawal. These few exchanges never left the Indian crypto community hanging in between and helpless.

Considering their trustworthiness, commitment and performance towards the community. Here is the list of best Bitcoin exchanges to buy/sell bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies in India.

My Thoughts:

The above five as per my experience are the best Bitcoin trading platforms in India. Bitcoin rates provided on these Bitcoin exchanges are realtime and in par with the global price. 

All of them have their presence on Telegram and are active 24/7. Half of the time issue does get resolved on telegram, incase if it does not then you can always raise a support ticket.

Till to date, I have never experienced any major issues in their service. They all have brilliant support, who are very helpful and are able to resolve all issues within 24 hours.

You can not only buy/sell Bitcoin on these cryptocurrency exchanges but also trade other cryptocurrencies. I personally recommend opening up an account on all of them.

In case if you do not find your altcoin traded on any one of them you can try the other. In general, all of them have listed all the major altcoins on their exchange.

If you introduce your family members or friends to these 5 exchange then do use their referral program. All the above exchanges have a very rewarding referral program.

In the End:

I would never recommend anyone to hold their assets on a cryptocurrency exchange, it is always recommended to hold them on a cold wallet. In case if you are not familiar with a cold storage wallet.

It is a wallet that is not connected to the internet or is connected occasionally. The desktop and hardware wallet are the best examples of cold storage wallets.

Use exchange wallets only for trading. I personally use ledger wallet to hold my cryptocurrencies.

Always do your own research before investing in cryptocurrencies.
