Bitget’s Strategic Move into the Indian Market

Crypto trading platform Bitget is making headlines with its plans to expand into the Indian market. Recognized as one of the fastest-growing crypto markets globally, India has caught the attention of Bitget’s strategic planners. On Wednesday, a Bitget representative revealed that “India is a high-priority market for Bitget”, indicating the platform’s commitment to navigating through the regulatory landscape to ensure compliance and service to Indian users.

Engaging with Indian Regulators

Bitget’s approach to its expansion involves active discussions with Indian regulators regarding licensing requirements. The platform’s commitment to compliance is evident as it aims to adhere to India’s anti-money laundering framework introduced in March 2023. This framework has seen Indian authorities crackdown on non-compliant crypto exchanges, including issuing notices to nine exchanges in December, such as Binance and Kraken.

India’s Potential in the Crypto and Web3 Space

Simran Alphonso, Head of Global Communications at Bitget, highlighted the vast potential of the Indian market in the Web3 space. She noted that India’s high-skilled talent, tech-savvy population, and emerging positive regulations make it a promising territory for Bitget’s expansion efforts.

Bitget’s Global Expansion and Compliance Strategy

Bitget’s expansion strategy is not limited to India. The Seychelles-registered exchange has been keen on establishing itself in jurisdictions with clear licensing and registration guidelines. For instance, Bitget expanded into the UAE last year, focusing on setting up a compliant exchange and recruiting more employees to bolster its Middle East team.

Additionally, Bitget has acquired Virtual Assets Service Provider (VASP) licenses in Lithuania and Poland, reinforcing its commitment to global compliance and user transparency. The exchange provides access to verifiable Proof of Reserves data and comprehensive fund storage information to its users.


Bitget’s Commitment to Indian Users

In a separate tweet, the official Bitget India handle emphasized the importance of Indian users to the platform, stating that they are “extremely valuable and important.” This sentiment underscores Bitget’s dedication to serving the Indian market and ensuring a compliant and user-friendly trading environment.
