While the current tax norms provide a good starting point for the Indian government, reducing TDS and Capital Gains Taxes further to align them with other assets like stocks and bonds would facilitate greater growth in the industry. Implementing clear governance and regulatory standards is essential to monitor and deter bad actors. We strongly support the establishment of constructive regulations and have high hopes that these regulations will foster a thriving industry.

TechGraph: Cryptocurrency adoption in India has been on the rise, with more individuals and businesses exploring digital assets. What strategies has ZebPay implemented to educate and onboard new users, and how do you ensure transaction security and transparency?

Anuj Kumar Garg: Our dedicated focus is to provide investors with accurate information and robust tools, empowering them to make well-informed decisions. We advise all crypto investors to conduct thorough due diligence before making any buy/sell decision. Investors should also ensure that they have a clear plan about when to take a position on a certain token. By comprehending the market dynamics and conducting personal research, one can make sound investment choices. Equipped with the right information, individuals can avoid making impulsive decisions driven by fear, cultivate valuable market timing skills, and maximize their earnings by strategically buying and selling at opportune moments.

TechGraph: Looking ahead, what are ZebPay’s plans for expansion and growth in India’s crypto market? How do you see the future of cryptocurrencies in the country?

Anuj Kumar Garg: The future of crypto in India is bright, with Indian entrepreneurs leading the way in crypto innovation since its inception. We are pleased to see the Government’s recognition of crypto. While lower tax rates would incentivize more investors to enter the crypto market, the current scenario provides a favorable starting point.

It’s important to note that crypto extends beyond trading alone. The crypto space is witnessing remarkable innovations, leading to the development of decentralized applications and services. Web 3.0, Decentralized Finance (DeFi), and Metaverse gaming are among the rapidly growing focus areas. Owning crypto assets that power these technologies can offer business and retail investors a significant advantage in the future.

India has the potential to become a hub for crypto innovation in the near future. According to a recent report released by strategy and management consulting firm Arthur D. Little, the Web3 and Metaverse market opportunity in India is expected to grow at an annual growth rate of nearly 40%, with the potential to become a US $200 billion industry by 2035.

This indicates a substantial foundation for growth, considering the significant increase in crypto adoption within India. Overall, the crypto landscape in India holds immense potential. With Indian entrepreneurs leading the way and the growing adoption of crypto assets, India is poised to become a center for crypto innovation in the coming years.

ZebPay’s primary focus has always been customer satisfaction and compliance. With that in mind, we are gearing up for a series of product updates that will help our customers seamlessly trade crypto, visualize their portfolio, and use all possible indicators to make the right trading decisions. We recommend users stay tuned to our app and website as we constantly communicate with our users through these channels.
