About today’s draft cabinet note on crypto ban in India
About today’s draft note on crypto ban in India Namaste Tribe! This article is based on a note, contents of which are unclear. It’s not clear whether the finance ministry intends to work upon the old draconian crypto bill or whether they plan to work on bringing a new bill.With over 5 Million young crypto enthusiasts, India is poised to gain a big share of the the $250+ Billion crypto market. The crypto ecosystem and technology evolves quickly and it’s in India’s best interests to revisit the entire bill and think in the direction of innovation. Encouraging a fast growing industry is in India’s best interest. We’re living in dangerous times where we have lost many lives due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The global economy has also taken a hit with majority of once-thriving industries in shambles. Crypto, on the other hand, has been generating jobs across a variety of functions — legal, compliance, tech, marketing, business development, finance, etc. — in India and abroad. There are top-notch projects that have come out of India. Imagine what we can achieve with positive regulation! I’ve also said it before, that when it comes to regulating crypto, I’m positive that India will follow the footsteps of developed countries like Japan, USA, UK, Australia, and more. India has been on fence for a long time while most of the developed world has accepted and introduced positive regulations. The question that ...

|WazirX Shuts Down NFT Marketplace Due to Low Traction
Indian crypto exchange WazirX has wound up its NFT marketplace operations with immediate effect. Currently, the WazirX NFT site displays a message to this effect.
WazirX NFT Sunsetted
“The WazirX NFT marketplace has been sunsetted. You can still trade your NFTs on OpenSea,” the message reads.
In a statement on its site, Wazir said despite creating a “safe and secure” marketplace, the business “did not gain much traction.”
“NFTs are decentralized, and owners have complete control over their assets, which is why they have become so popular. Our users can rest assured that they can continue to hold their NFTs in their wallets, and these can be sold in other marketplaces such as OpenSea,” the statement clarified.
A report by Inc42 said that WazirX NFTs has 52,253 items on sale on OpenSea.
No Notice, Rug Pull…
The news was received with surprise on social media. Several posts on Twitter pointed to “Zero notice,” and some termed it a rug-pull. A Twitter user complained that the NFTs hosted on this platform will now fetch nothing.
WazirX CEO Nischal Shetty replied to a tweet that termed the closing down of the WazirX NFT marketplace a rug-pull.
“Rugpull? NFTs have always been under self-custody of those participating,” he said.
Only a day before WazirX shut down its marketplace, an NFT collection unde...
|Indian Crypto Exchange Wazirx Calls Binance's Allegations 'False and Uns...
Indian crypto exchange Wazirx has denied the allegations made by Binance regarding the relationship between the two crypto exchanges. Emphasizing that the allegations 'are false and unsubstantiated,' Wazirx stressed. 'As far as Binance's actions are concerned, we are taking the necessary steps to seek recourse and protect our legal rights.'Wazirx Says Binance's Accusations Are 'False and Unsubstantiated'
Wazirx said Tuesday that Binance's allegations regarding its relationship with Zanmai Labs, allegedly the entity that operates the Indian crypto exchange, are 'false' and 'misleading.' The company added that it is seeking recourse.
Wazirx wrote on its website:
The allegations made by Binance in their blog are false and unsubstantiated. As far as Binance's actions are concerned, we are taking the necessary steps to seek recourse and protect our legal rights.
The global cryptocurrency exchange has accused Zanmai of making 'a series of misleading claims related to Binance's alleged role in and responsibility for operating the Wazirx exchange.' Binance said on Friday, Feb. 3: 'The false and misleading narrative put forth to the public misrepresented Binance as maintaining control over Wazirx users' assets, user activity, and the platform's operations.'
Binance's announcement followed a public dispute between the two crypto exchanges. In August last year, Wazirx founder Nischal Shetty insisted that Wazirx is owned and controlled by Binance. 'Zanmai Labs has [a] license from Binanc...
|Binance Says Indian Crypto Exchange Wazirx Can No Longer Use Its Wallet ...
Binance has announced that Indian crypto exchange Wazirx can no longer use Binance wallet services. Zanmai, the operator of Wazirx, has until Feb. 3 'to remove the funds from the accounts that they used for Wazirx's operations.' The move followed a public dispute regarding the relationship between Binance and Wazirx.
Binance Ends Wallet Services to Wazirx
Cryptocurrency exchange Binance said Friday that Indian crypto exchange Wazirx 'can no longer use Binance wallet services.'
Noting that it 'has no control over Wazirx user funds or any aspect of the Wazirx exchange's operations,' Binance explained:
We provided wallet and related technology services to the exchange's operator, Zanmai Labs (Zanmai), – a service we are terminating.
While Zanmai has conveyed its intention to withdraw funds from relevant accounts, Binance noted that at the time of its announcement, the Indian company 'has not fully withdrawn assets held in the Binance wallets that it uses for Wazirx's operations.'
The Public Dispute Between Binance and Wazirx
Binance's termination of wallet services to Zanmai followed a public debate between Binance and Wazirx regarding the nature of the relationship between the two cryptocurrency trading platforms.
'Zanmai has made a series of misleading claims related to Binance's alleged role in and responsibility for operating the Wazirx exchange,' Binance described, elaborating:
The false and misleading narrative put forth to the public misrepresented Binance as mainta...
|Binance Gives Deadline for WazirX to Withdraw Client Assets Stored in it...
The world's leading crypto exchange has given an ultimatum to the operator of WazirX to withdraw all customer funds stored on Binance's infrastructure and wallets.
This comes as Zanmai has supposedly refused to retract a previous 'false public statement' against Binance.
The spat between the two crypto trading platforms began last year when the Indian government went after WazirX, raided offices belonging to Zanmai (the exchange's operator), and froze over $8 million in assets.
Binance, which had previously invested in the Indian company, refused to have any other affiliation with it, even though there were reports that it actually owns at least a portion.
Earlier today, the CZ-led crypto giant issued another statement, urging Zanmai to 'work out arrangements with us to withdraw any remaining assets in the relevant accounts after 3 February.'
This is because Binance believes WazirX's operator had made numerous 'false public statements' in the past related to the former's 'alleged role in and responsibility for operating' the latter.
'On 26 January 2023, we offered Zanmai a choice between retracting the false public statements (and continuing to use our services) or terminating the use of our wallet service. Since Zanmai has refused to clarify their misleading statements, Zanmai has till 3 February 2023 (23:59 UTC) to remove the funds from the accounts that they used for WazirX’s operations.'
Binance said it only provides wallet services and general infrastructure to ...
|India's WazirX Releases Proof-of-Reserves With Over 1:1 Liability Ratio
Indian crypto exchange WazirX released its proof-of-reserves (PoR) report disclosing its reserves-to-liability ratio of over 1:1. Alongside the paper, published by CoinGabbar, a third-party platform that tracks crypto assets, WazirX also made its wallet addresses, and list of exchanges available to the public.
At press time, the Indian company had over $283 million of total user assets in the form of stablecoin USDT.
WazirX, in a statement, highlighted that the platform is not only India’s largest crypto exchange by volume but is also the largest in terms of reserves. According to the report, 90% of user assets are held in wallets at Binance despite a very public spat between the CEOs of the two crypto exchanges - CZ and Nischal Shetty - over WazirX's ownership.
Meanwhile, the remaining user asset balance of 10% is stored in hot and warm wallets. This adds to nearly $257.25 million and $26.59 million, respectively.
The wallets used by the platform are multi-sig with multiple private keys required to perform certain tasks, thereby making it difficult to get compromised.
Over the last two months, several crypto exchanges have rushed to publish PoR reports in a seeming attempt to reassure clients their funds are safe after FTX's meltdown. WazirX is the latest to hop on the trend. In case of liquidation, the company assured the customers that it has sufficient funds 'till the last minute' to enable withdrawals in case of liquidation.

India's Directorate of Enforcement (ED) says it has frozen more cryptocurrencies, including bitcoin, tether, and the Wazirx token. The action is part of its investigation of the mobile gaming app E-nuggets. In its latest announcement, the ED revealed that nearly 86 bitcoins found at crypto exchange Binance were frozen.Indian Authority Freezes More Cryptocurrencies: Bitcoin, Tether, Wazirx Token
India's Directorate of Enforcement (ED) announced Friday that it has frozen two more cryptocurrencies under the country's Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA). The ED is the Indian government's law enforcement and economic intelligence agency. The announcement details:
Directorate of Enforcement (ED) has freezed the crypto currencies WRX (utility token of Wazirx) and USDT (tether, an Ethereum token that is pegged to the value of a U.S. dollar) equivalent to Rs 47.64 lakhs.
The ED initiated a money laundering investigation of Aamir Khan and others relating to E-nuggets on the basis of an FIR dated Feb. 15, 2021.
Aamir Khan, S/o Nesar Ahmed Khan launched E-Nuggets, 'which was designed for the purpose of defrauding public,' the Indian authority said. 'Further, after collecting handsome amount from the public, all of the sudden, the withdrawal from the said app, was stopped, on the pretext of one and other excuses.'
The agency explained that its investigations have revealed that the accused transferred the amount earned through the E-nuggets gaming app using a cryptocurrency exchange...
|Wazirx Follows in Binance's Footsteps Unlisting USDC, USDP and TUSD
On September 19, WazirX, one of India's leading cryptocurrency exchanges, announced the delisting of Circle's USDC, Paxos' USDP, and TrueUSD (TUSD) stablecoins, effective September 26, following in Binance's footsteps.
According to the statement, USDC, USDP, and TUSD deposits have already been suspended. In addition, users will have to withdraw their funds by October 05, or they will be automatically converted to BUSD —just like Binance did.
'Auto-conversion will be done on or before October 05. After the Auto-Conversion is completed, users will be able to withdraw USDC, USDP, or TUSD at a ratio of 1:1 from their BUSD balances.'
Tether's USDT will still be supported.
WazirX's Goal Is 'To Enhance Liquidity And Capital Efficiency'
According to WazirX, the delisting of USDC, USDP, and TUSD, seeks to enhance liquidity and capital efficiency for users, a claim identical to what Binance made recently when it delisted the same stablecoins.
Like Binance, WazirX ended its statement by indicating that it could include other significant stablecoins. However, the exchange did not provide further information in this regard.
The relationship between Binance and WazirX is tricky. On its official site, WazirX claims it is affiliated with the Binance group, so the decision could be in line with Binance's interests to make BUSD one of the most important stablecoins in the ecosystem, increasing its market capitalization, which is currently around $20.52B.
However, as CryptoPotato recently...

Wazirx customers have until September 23 to withdraw their stablecoins if they don't want the funds converted.Wazirx Plans to Drop 3 Stablecoins and Auto-Convert Them to BUSD by October 5
During the first week of September, the world's largest crypto exchange by trade volume, Binance, revealed it would be dropping a number of stablecoins. Binance also noted at the time, that customers had a certain period of time to withdraw the stablecoins or the funds would be automatically converted to BUSD.
On September 19, 2022, the cryptocurrency exchange Wazirx said it would no longer support deposits for USDC, TUSD, and USDP. The announcement published on Monday details that customers can still withdraw the aforementioned stablecoins but only until Friday, September 23.
Wazirx will 'support withdrawals of USDC, USDP, and TUSD till 5 PM IST on 23rd September 2022,' and 'delist USDC, USDP, and TUSD spot market pairs at 07:30 AM IST on 26th September 2022,' the exchange announcement notes. By October 5, any stablecoin balances left on the exchange will be automatically converted to BUSD.
Binance and Wazirx dropping USDC, TUSD, and USDP follow commentary from Circle's CEO Jeremy Allaire about Binance's decision, and Trueusd and Paxos representatives supporting the idea. The move by Wazirx also follows the reports concerning the disagr...

Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao (CZ) has warned that his company could 'disable Wazirx wallets on a tech level,' advising anyone with funds on the Indian crypto exchange to transfer them to Binance. The warning followed numerous tweets by CZ and Wazirx's founder regarding whether Binance acquired Wazirx.

|WazirX CEO, COO Move Out of India to Dubai: Report
A news report suggesting that India’s hostile policy towards the digital asset sector is leading to an exodus of crypto-entrepreneurs from the country has said that Nischal Shetty and Siddharth Menon, both co-founders of WazirX, have left India along with their families for Dubai. Shetty and Menon are CEO and COO at WazirX, respectively.
The Binance-operated company, the largest Indian crypto exchange by volume, is among the many local trading venues that had seen a sharp fall in transactions since April 1, when the new crypto taxations rules became effective.
Although there is no official confirmation or denial of these rumors, WazirX has addressed the media query in this regard with a statement that says the company is a remote-first and its executives can work from anywhere, the news report said.
'We are a remote-first organisation with employees from over 70+ locations. This gives all the company employees the option to work from anywhere, subject to their comfort and convenience unless they are required to travel officially. WazirX is headquartered in Mumbai and Bengaluru, and there is no change in any of our operating procedures. It is business as usual,' Business Today quotes from the statement in its report.
