The core team led by Nischal Shetty had an ‘’idea’’ to bring transparency into P2P exchanges&trading platforms firstly on India, then all around the world on February, 2018. To achieve this ‘’basic’’ feature, the team created the WazirX Exchange with the feature of ‘’the most trusted cryptocurrency exchange’’ goal. They’re not the first and won’t be the last on the infinite crypto ecocsystem but the main goal brings them into current place. Let’s look further into WazirX…
How they started?
On 1st of February, 2018 the CEO of WazirX Nischal Shetty shared an Medium article on his individual blog. In this article, we understand that CEO had some issues over the current cryptocurrency exchanges at that time about their ‘’transparency policy’’. He stated that they solved problems about social media management via ‘’Crowdfire’’. He described this as a ‘’challenge’’ and bringing transparency to crypto world became his next target.
‘’We’re building an exchange that will bring anyone who believes in crypto to join the digital cryptocurrency revolution. The world is moving on to this revolution at an unprecedented pace.’’
Why ‘’WazirX’’ ?
Everyone knows that there are 5 chess pieces different than ‘’check-king’’. The ‘’queen’’ is the leader of the chess pieces with its unlimited movement capacity and strength. And ‘’wazir’’ is one of the local expressions of queen in the chess game. The team believes that they will bring the strength and speed of the crypto ecosystem into India and they agreed to use ‘’WazirX’’.
As you know, the upgrade of the ‘’pawn’’ into the ‘’queen’’ is one the most specific, also the most special movement. In my opinion, they used this word because they believe to bring the superiority of the cryptos into our daily lives via WazirX.
Why ‘’INDIA’’ ?
India, with over 1 billion people, is the 2nd most crowded country in today’s world. So it has very huge potential to reach people. With the features they built, the main goal is ‘’to share the wealth instead of hoarding it’’. So sharing the benefits of crypto worlds with Indians make them reach one of their primary goals.
Also, they’re from India. Maybe this is one the reasons:D
What are the features that WazirX provides for its users?
The main goal at the beginning is ‘’to bring transparency’’ as I said. But it’s not the only one. They became one of the leading cryptocurrency exchanges both in India, also all around the world. Firstly, ‘’the speed of transactions’’ is too high when sending/receiving even though it’s not as easy and fast as bank transfers. The availability of reaching anyone is another factor. Because when we think about the crowdedness of Indian cities, reaching banks ‘’in anytime you want’’ should be a problem. Besides that, the WazirX platform is available on 5 different platforms so you can use it anywhere you want.

What is WRX token?
As a standard, every exchange creates its own token. So we can basically define ‘’WRX’’ as a exchange token. ‘’WRX’’ was created on BinanceChain BEP2 with the total supply of 1,000,000,000. You can check the allocation details on the 16th page of the whitepaper. As you can see here, 15% of total supply is for ‘’WRX Airdrop & Mining acitivities’’, which explains us the other utilization areas of WRX. The airdrop amount and mining details will be based your your WRX holding amount so they award ‘’the believers of WazirX’’ continously.
Fee deduction is another term in WRX utility. The team decided to lower the exchange the trading fees in the following 4 years with lowering the percentage. If you hold WRX, you can earn from airdrop and fee deduction at the same time. Check this article for details.
In the upcoming future, the team plans to burn 10% of total supply of WRX in different periods of time. The burnings will be notified to the community. And another 10% of total supply of WRX was used for Binance Launchpad and 5% for private sale again on Binance. You can check the deatialed information about token sale of WRX with the related Binance Research Report.
After several weeks from the launch of WazirX, RBI (The Reserve Bank of India) has announced complete ban of cryptocurrencies which takes total prohibitions to crypto sales, purchases or trading. This may cause the end of story at the very beginning. But the expert team has achieved to overcome this situaiton and on 4th of March, 2020 RBI lifted this ban.
Within these 2 year-period, WazirX get acquired by Binance which is the current leader of the crpyto ecosystem all over the world. And you can read the full announcement about partnership here. WazirX is the leader crypto exchange on India and Binance is the most well-known and trusted company in crypto world. So the partnership will increase both 2 teams’ reputation and the one of the goals of WazirX has been reached.
The IEO price of WRX was 0.02 per token, and it peaked up to 2600 sats which equals about 13X within 1-month period. So Binance users are excited and interested in WRX, also. Besides that, it shows us that what a good partnership between 2 exchanges was made.
‘’WazirX revolutionise the P2P segment the way Binance has revolutionised the crypto-to-crypto segment.’’
