Something to add

In April, we saw crypto market show signs of improvement despite the global crisis. On a light note, this lockdown has given more time in people’s hands, and they are reading about crypto. We’re also seeing more and more users sign up and trade. 💪 At WazirX, we continue to work remotely. In the meantime, I hope you all maintain social distancing and stay safe.
