Commenting on the adoption of bitcoins in India, Sandeep Goenka Co-founder and Chief Operating Officer, Zebpay said, “Trade volumes at Zebpay are significant for India but still tiny compared to global trade volume of Rs 20,000 crores per day. Buoyed by positive industry growth, Zebpay has crossed 500,000 downloads and is adding 4,500 users every day. While it is encouraging to see growth in bitcoins adoption and scale, we are still at the tip of the iceberg vis-à-vis globally large trade volume. Nevertheless, we remain optimistic about the growth potential of bitcoin globally and in India as an emerging asset class.”
