Last Sunday, Bengaluru was witness to an event by the largest cryptocurrency exchange by volume Binance. Binance’s India team setup a meet-up in the IT hub of the country. Here’s a walk through from on ground.
Binance Bengaluru Meetup
Binance Exchange has successfully hosted an interesting meet-up in Begaluru, the Silicon Valley of India. The event was organised on March 30, 2019, by Binance India team under ‘Naman Mittal’, of course, backed by CEO Changpeng Zhao and his team.
Beyond a serious discussion, it was more of close chat, where Naman Mittal happily welcomes all the attendees and asked for a cup of coffee or anything that interests them. The event was kick-started around 10.20 am at Coworks space, at RMZ Infinity, Bengaluru.
Binance in India – The Offerings
As per Naman Mittal, the mission of meetup was to enhance Binance and crypto awareness across India and to show how safely Binance helps them with user’s crypto holding. Citing various pillars that Binance exchange is having, including Binance trust wallet, Binance launch pad, Binance Charity, Binance Academy and more, Mittal addressed the audiences and their queries. Although there wasn’t any special or specific announcement, the meetup was quite interesting as one-to-one chat.

Will Binance launch a Peer to Peer Exchange?
One of the exciting questions from the audience was ‘Is Binance planning to launch P2P trading platform in India”? However, there was no concrete answer by Mittal as to whether or not Binance really has any future plan but he does clear that Binance always looks for more potential in a country that is crypto friendly – as such he referred the recent expansion in Australia.
Addressing the similar question asked on Twitter, Binance CEO, CZ, responded as follows;
Stage is theirs too
Beside Binance, two more crypto & blockchain based Indian companies showed their presence – Koinfox and Nucleus Vision. While Koinfox works as an aggregator to crypto holdings, trading and more, Nucleus Vision is majorly focusing on bringing crypto into the retail sector via its native token nCash which presently valued at $0.002012.
Responding to my question, Pitti said nCash devices can also be found in India (besides S. Korea) he specifically mentioned Mumbai
All in all, it was a great meet-up for networking, to understand and know crypto-oriented Indian peers, firms, and groups. With an epic group photo, Binance wrapped up the conference around 1.20 pm.
