As we are all aware of the unfortunate scenarios that COVID-19 has imposed upon all of us, many businesses pulled down their shutters permanently, while others were at tremendous losses and unemployment was surging through the roof. But, some businesses pulled through the situation and the COVID-imposed lockdowns due to the nature of their business and CoinDCX was one of such companies.
As claimed by the company spokesperson, the crypto-financial platform scaled up exponentially and is continuing to do so. Besides, they have claimed to almost triple their workforce from 30 employees in March to 90 in December, according to a report by Live Mint.
Sumit Gupta, CEO and co-founder, CoinDCX mentioned in a statement that the company is hiring new talents aggressively to meet the needs of their operations. Furthermore, he adds that the company is currently focusing to scale up its crypto investment app, the CoinDCX Go which is a part of their #TryCrypto movement which aims to onboard over 50 million Indian into the digital currency market as they ultimately aim to lead the crypto adoption in India.
India is continuously advancing on all digital platforms with the boost in the on-going digitisation wave that resulted during the nation-wide lockdowns and making cryptocurrencies accessible to everyone in a country like India- world’s second-most populous country can turn out to be very profitable and CoinDCX is capitalising on this opportunity.
