ASCI joins hands with CoinDCX to build trust and credibility in crypto advertising

CoinDCX Joins Advertising Standards Council of India
  • CoinDCX and ASCI aim to enhance confidence and credibility of India’s rapidly growing cryptocurrency and digital asset industry.
  • The move comes after crypto exchanges in India — which includes WazirX, CoinSwitch Kuber and CoinDCX — have been putting the pedal to the metal when it comes to advertising in the country.
Earlier last month, a notice by the Delhi High Court had asked Indian exchanges to add ‘standardised’ disclaimers to their ads in response to a plea that complained that the currency disclaimers are too small to read. Now, Advertising Standards Council of India (ASCI), a voluntary self-regulatory organisation of the advertising industry has partnered with CoinDCX to mull over regulations to build transparency in crypto advertising.

With this membership, CoinDCX will actively support the advancement of advertising standards within India’s cryptocurrency and digital asset industry — thereby promoting transparency in communications and building public confidence in the space.

Sumit Gupta, Co-Founder and CEO of CoinDCX, said: “We are honoured to be a member of ASCI that safeguards consumers' interests. The involvement reaffirms our commitment towards ensuring safety and security for our users, and to raise the bar for advertising transparency in crypto space in India. This will boost confidence among the users, and they can use our platform without any apprehension. Being the safest crypto exchange, we have always gone the extra mile to ensure we are fully compliant with the laws and imbue credibility and trust in our service and products.”

Commenting on CoinDCX’s membership, Subhash Kamath, Chairman of ASCI said: “As ASCI steps into a digital age the nature of advertisers and advertising is changing rapidly. We welcome members representing these new industries, who believe in self-regulation. Collaboration and consultation with all stakeholders are keys to navigating the consumer protection challenges posed in this digital age.”

Founded in 2018, CoinDCX has already onboarded more than 3.5 million users. It will now carry forward the vision of making crypto accessible in India and accelerate its efforts towards bringing 50 million Indians into crypto. With the growing positive sentiments in the crypto space this year, CoinDCX will continue to scale its dedicated products on the investments and trading side.
