The Government of Maharashtra recently announced that it is partnering with LegitDoc, an Indian blockchain startup, to provide tamper-proof diploma certificates. The announcement comes not long after reports that the state government was using the Polygon Network to track the results of RT-PCR tests.

As computer graphics become more advanced, it becomes easier to forge paper-based documents. Naturally, this is a problem for a bureaucracy where most processes are still conducted with manual verification — which is often cursory at best.

Solutions like the government’s DigiLocker are a step in the right direction. However, these are built on a centralized…


DEXes and their Differences

A decentralized exchange or DEX, is a peer-to-peer marketplace that connects cryptocurrency buyers and sellers. DEXes employ smart contracts that self-execute under set conditions and record each transaction to the blockchain. ZebPay now lists a total of four DEX projects for trading. Let’s take a closer look at them.

DEXes are important because:

- You have control on your private keys. Private key, let’s say, is an alphanumeric string that allows you to access your digital assets.
- Centralized exchanges don’t have a private key.
- Centralized exchanges choose the cryptocurrencies they list, they record the transactions and they are in charge of…


Bitcoin Monday

26th July 2021 | ZebPay Trade-Desk

Bitcoin has witnessed an uptrend over the past couple of days as it skyrocketed from $30,000 to $38,500 levels. The asset finally beat the stiff resistance of $35,000, and since then has rallied upwards. We have also seen volumes build up gradually, as institutional investors seem to be building their positions at these levels.

Bitcoin last week did not test the support of $28,800 (Previous Low) and reversed from the weekly low of $29,301. Technically on the daily time frame, the asset has made a ‘Bullish Engulfing’ pattern and has surged almost by 35% making…


Weekly Trade Summary Report

22 July 2021 | ZebPay Trade-Desk

Over the course of the month, crypto markets have largely seen a downside as Bitcoin and Altcoins continue to ride the downward trend. Most analysts and traders continue to maintain a bearish stance across major assets. Some basic analysis will indicate that trading activity had collapsed with spot exchange volumes having fallen more than 60% from the highs in May. The derivatives market has also seen an exodus of leverage traders and the Bitcoin futures open interest is back to the early 2021 levels. In current times, any movement across any asset is very largely…


Altcoin Thursday: BAT

22nd July 2021 | ZebPay Trade-Desk

BAT derives utility from the Brave browser. It has seen better mass adoption among both retailers and publishers, over the past few months, and coupled with the fact that BAT is still relatively undervalued given its utility, acquiring the asset at these levels seems to look like a highly attractive proposition for long term investors. In addition, as the ERC-20, and DeFi space continues to grow, this asset is poised for success.BAT post making a weekly high of $0.60135, corrected almost 24%(up to $0.45582) as the candles made ‘Lower Top Lower Bottom’ formation. Currently, the…


The Launch of Curve DAO Token at ZebPay

14 July 2021| ZebPay Trade-Desk

Curve is a DeFi exchange for stablecoins like (DAI -USDC) and utilises AMM’s to provide and manage liquidity on the platform. It was launched in January 2020 and has now become one of the largest decentralized exchanges, since it witnessed phenomenal growth in the latter part of 2020. In August last year, Curve introduced a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO), with CRV as its native token. The DAO is built on an Ethereum based tool, Aragon, which connects multiple smart contracts that enable users to deposit liquidity. As of June 2021, 39 active pools are available for…


The STORY of STORJ

‘The needs for cloud storage are pretty simple. Data was supposed to be private, hack-proof and always available.’ Storj delivers on this promise, while delivering the world’s first decentralized cloud storage service. Better yet — you can now trade STORJ tokens on ZebPay!

Before we begin, I’m just going to come out and say it. I’ve been saying storrj all week as I did my research for this post. With that crucial piece of information delivered, let’s dive in!

How does Storj work?

One way to think about Storj is as the Uber of cloud storage. The Atlanta-based startup does not own a…


SNX: Bringing new assets to blockchain

SNX is coming to ZebPay! Starting July 14th, you can govern part of the DeFi ecosystem and vote on which new assets will enter the blockchain. As DeFi matures, we’re seeing a greater intersection between traditional and decentralized finance. Synthetix is leading the charge, by introducing blockchain-based derivatives.

This is a synthesizer. It may look just like a piano, but it is one of the most versatile musical instruments in the world.

If you can play a synthesizer, you can play any instrument! Synthesizers radically changed music since they were first widely used in the 1970s. Today, there are only a…


Stay ahead of the Curve with CRV

Curve Finance is coming to ZebPay! Curve DAO’s governance token CRV has been a standout performer in 2021, hitting a high on Jan 17, before settling at ₹143. Rather than directly compete in the DeFi market maker space, Curve’s stablecoin-driven model helps it build a niche for itself.

Much like Uniswap, Curve Finance is a decentralized exchange or DEX, powered by an automated market-maker. So, you can use Curve the same way you use ZebPay — as a platform to exchange different crypto.

However, instead of placing the responsibility of running this platform with any individual organisation — Curve has algorithms…


What are APR and APY?

As you evaluate a potential investment, ROI is one of the first questions which spring to mind. It’s natural to want to get the most out of your investments! APR and APY are two terms used to calculate interest on investments and debts. Both sound similar, but are calculated differently. Let’s learn about them!

Before we dive deeper into APR and APY, let’s revisit a concept from middle-school mathematics. There are two ways to calculate interest on an amount:

Simple interest, which only takes the principal into account. Compound interest, which factors in interest you have already earned. …
