According to reports, Indian Crypto Exchanges are already initiating and aiding all peer-to-peer crypto operations. This development by the exchanges manifested in a bid to forestall the numerous restrictions inflicted by banks and other payment firms. In view of this, the Indian Crypto exchanges now offer P2P transfer as an avenue to avert the usage of payment platforms.

Accordingly, the Indian Crypto exchanges in actualizing such efforts usually acquire a buy order. Afterward, the exchanges directly connect the seller with the buyer with immediate effect. Having done this, the buyer becomes eligible to transfer funds using either banks or payments platform to the seller. Then, the seller grossly transfers the crypto assets from his wallet to the wallet of the buyer. This development implies that the direct transfers between payment platforms or banks to the exchange have been averted.

However, the new development by the Indian Crypto Exchanges became obtainable following the restrictions recently imposed on payments platforms in India. As reported by local media, the restrictions manifested since April 18.

Why are Indian crypto exchanges aiding P2P transactions?

According to an undisclosed staff in one of the exchanges, the new development remains a seamless money transfer from A to B. The anonymous official believes that’s not how exchanges are meant to function because the trend remains less productive. He, however, feels exchanges subscribe to the process because it lacks violations, restrictions, or law. Accordingly, the process functions using third-party payments processors, which usually manifest as Fiat on and off-ramps obtainable between the exchange and their clients.

Consequently, the Reserve Bank of India recently warned payment companies to desist from working with Indian crypto exchanges. According to reports, Coinbase suspended its payment partner just a few days after the exchange became launched in the country. The suspension, however, manifested from numerous pressures by the apex bank of India. Initially, Coinbase intended to begin with popular unified payment interface (UPI) offerings.

However, the imposition of the state financial regulations paused the plan as regulators claims unawareness of the exchange using UPI
More so, one of the Indian crypto exchanges, identified as CoinSwitch Kuber disabled all crypto deposits and withdrawals obtainable on its payment platform. This, however, limited Indians to few alternatives in an attempt for fiat to exchange transactions.

Furthermore, numerous Indian crypto exchanges plan to employ different mechanisms to aid payments. The aggregate intention remained geared toward acquiring the crypto funds directly from clients into their respective bank accounts. Afterward, the crypto exchange proceeds to relay the digital assets into the crypto wallets of the users.
