Ashish Singhal is the founder and CEO of CoinSwitch, India’s largest cryptocurrency company with 15 million registered users. Be it the note-taking app from his engineering days or the 1-hour delivery service he developed at Amazon as a JeffB crack-team member, Ashish’s approach is straightforward: Build the product the customer wants, and make it as simple as he wishes. It is a maxim that today underpins CoinSwitch, no matter the sophistication of the crypto technology.
Founded in 2017 with Govind Soni and Vimal Sagar Tiwari as a single window to purchase crypto from global exchanges at the best price, CoinSwitch expanded to INR-Crypto trading in June 2020, providing Indians with a simple, safe and secure platform to partake in the crypto revolution. Today, users can purchase over 90 crypto assets on CoinSwitch, including Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Solana — either through a one-time order or by automating a recurring purchase. As the Co-Chair of the Blockchain and Crypto Assets Council (BACC), a part of the Internet and Mobile Association of India (IAMAI), Ashish also leads the cause of effecting a blockchain-based technological shift in India.
