We want all our users to have the ease of trading or exchanging on our platform. Through this seamless banking process, we endeavour to make the entire crypto experience more user-centric that offers ease of utilizing the gained currency for shopping and other necessary affairs,” Sathvik Vishwanath, CEO and Co-Founder said.
