Bitcoin in India is gaining momentum, and it is legal to buy and sell Bitcoin in India. However, there are only a handful of quality Indian crypto exchanges where you can buy Bitcoin.

P2P model is yet the best way to buy/sell cryptocurrency in India.  Many exchanges offers innovative P2P solutions to facilitate Indian traders.

Note: When making a P2P transfer for cryptos, do not use any word like crypto, exchange name in the remark, that could identify the purpose of the transfer.

Here, I’m listing down those Indian Bitcoin exchange and trading websites that you can use to buy and sell Bitcoin. I have listed these websites based on their popularity and ease of use.

One thing that I have noticed with almost all of the Indian Bitcoin exchange websites is their pricing differs in real-time. So I would suggest that you don’t put all of your eggs in one basket. Instead, purchase Bitcoin from different places.

Here is the updated list of most popular Indian Bitcoin exchanges from where people from India can buy/sell Bitcoins:

  1. Wazirx
  2. Binance (Use USDT for trading, later on, transfer profit to India exchange and withdraw in INR)
  3. Localbitcoins (Multiple Indian Payment options)
  4. CoinDCX
  5. Bitbns
  6. Coinmama (Buy using debit/credit cards)
  7. Purse (Buy bitcoins using Amazon gift card)
  8. Coinmama & (Buy bitcoins using a debit/credit card)

With this, let’s get started and look at all the popular Indian Bitcoin exchange websites.

Popular Indian Bitcoin Exchange Websites to Buy Bitcoins

1. Wazirx

Wazirx is another famous crypto exchange in India which has joined the party only recently.

It is founded by an experienced team which is continually innovating with a mission to involve every Indian in the blockchain revolution.

In the present situation, they have come up with a new way of peer to peer trading which enables Indians to withdraw and deposit INR while trading cryptocurrencies. Deposit and Withdrawal using UPI method has made buying Bitcoin in India fast and instantaneous. WazirX mobile app is feature rich and lets you trade crypto from anywhere.

Here is the sneak peek into Wazirx methods:


If you want to sell your BTC worth $5000 which is equivalent to approximately ₹3.4 Lakhs INR, here’s what to do (Source):

  • Sell your crypto (BTC in this case) for 5000 USDT. Your trades will execute instantly because our USDT market has great liquidity! Now since USDT is a stable coin, its value will not fluctuate like volatile cryptos.
  • Put your 5000 USDT for sale on WazirX P2P.
  • When someone comes to buy 5000 USDT on WazirX P2P, they will transfer ₹3.4 Lakhs to your bank account via UPI or NEFT.
  • The support is fast and reliable. The Wazirx community is super active on Twitter and telegram.

2. LocalBitcoins

Do you want to buy Bitcoin using cash?

Well, this is where LocalBitcoins comes into the picture. Here you can find a seller who wishes to sell Bitcoin using different payment modes (including cash). In the below screenshot you can see the various options available for an Indian to buy Bitcoin.


LocalBitcoins is also popular amongst those who are looking to buy Bitcoin using PayPal. From a security perspective, they have added a 2-factor authentication, and another level of authentication gets activated when you log in from a new device.

The price to buy Bitcoin is higher here, but for those looking to buy Bitcoin ‘off the radar’, it is an ideal choice. If you wish to buy Bitcoin via cash, make sure you do the transaction in a public place. If you are looking to sell Bitcoins in India at a higher price, this is a great choice for you.

Here is a step-by-step process to understand how you can buy/sell BTC using Paytm app in India:

Founded by IIT graduates, also crypto enthusiasts, Bitbns is an Indian crypto exchange which commenced operations in December 2017.  The Bitbns team focusses on ease of use, security, and customer support right from the beginning. Do check our detailed BitBNS review.

The Bitbns team has also pioneered the innovative P2P model for exchange cryptocurrencies and INR despite difficult times in the Indian crypto scene.

4. CoinDcx Flux (This one is closed now)

CoinDelta is another new entrant that offers a multi-cryptocurrency exchange. They have listed many popular currencies, and are customer-centric. At the time of updating this list of Indian Bitcoin exchanges, these are the cryptos supported by CoinDelta, but now it has moved to a P2P model called Flux.

Flux is a peer-to-peer exchange where you can start trading cryptocurrencies in just a few steps. You can choose to buy or sell from a list of orders. A buyer transfers money directly to the seller’s account. It’s simple, quick and safe.

On flux, you can trade Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Ripple (XRP) and Tether (USDT).

Note: You can trade ETH, BTC, USDT, and XRP on it as of now.

You can choose any of the websites listed above based on your preferences. I will keep updating the list as I discover quality websites to buy and sell Bitcoin.

      Yah, heard of it and tried registering. Found it funny that they ask money for completing the KYC. Anyhow, we will do a detailed review of Koinex in the coming days.

  2. I stumbled upon an exchange called “Bitcoin India” , the name confused me a bit but apparently they have a trade mark. What are your views on this site?? I am considering them since they are going to provide access to both BTC and B2X post the fork on 16 NOV.
    Should I go with this or would you advice to keep my coins in a cold storage instead?
    Thank you.
