Dogecoin makes a massive entry into the Indian crypto industry and makes record sales at the majority of Indian crypto trading platforms, including Binance, backed by WazirX.
India is one of the rapidly adopting crypto countries of the world. However, the country is currently undergoing the worst of them all pandemic crisis. The number of corona-infected patients in India reportedly been exceeding 400,000 on daily basis. It is reported that there is an acute shortage of oxygen and necessary medical supplies. The number of death counts is presently the highest compared with other countries of the world.
However, even in the hardest times ever, the Indian crypto industry has wholeheartedly welcomed the famous meme coin, Dogecoin. It was reported that Dogecoin has successfully made its way into the locally operating crypto trading platforms of India. It was reported by several Indian crypto exchanges that they are able to make record sales of Dogecoin. They said that prior to the coming of Dogecoin in the Indian crypto market; they were not expecting such an overwhelming response.
WazirX, which is the largest crypto trading platform in India, informed that they are receiving huge numbers of Dogecoin requests. The demand is so high that it caused a temporary blockage of services at WazirX, told exchange operators. WazirX apprised that the system failed to respond because it was faced with a high number of requests, which it had never seen before. Resultantly, WazirX customers were unable to execute their Dogecoin trading transactions and grew frustrated.
Thereafter the customers took their complaints at Twitter and criticized WazirX. However, WazirX then clarified the present situation and successfully calmed down its customers.
CoinSwitch Kuber that its Dogecoin trading volume has surged by 200% on monthly basis further recorded it. However, the firm noticed that the major surge of 1300% was caused in less than two weeks’ time alone.
It is said that the present Dogecoin surge is because of Elon Musk’s upcoming appearance in a TV show called SNL. Some days ago, Musk revealed that he has been invited to a short gig, which will be broadcasted on SNL – an American TV show. He revealed that in his SNL appearance he would be discussing the meme coin.
It has been confirmed by WazirX that in less than 24 hours’ time, it has managed to trade Dogecoin for 600 Crores in Indian Rupees. While CoinSwitch Cuber reported that, its single-day Dogecoin trading volume successfully hit 100 Crores in Indian Rupees.
It is intriguing that simultaneously almost all Indian crypto exchange platforms have integrated Dogecoin. However, still, there are a few trading platforms that have deliberately refrained from enlisting the meme coin. For instance, ZebPay is one of those Indian crypto platforms that has not inducted Dogecoin. The company was of the view that when the time will come, they will adopt Dogecoin but not now.
