Popular crypto exchange Zebpay has announced that it is going down under.
“At the beginning of 2019, Zebpay was available in 20 international markets,” said Ajeet Khurana, CEO. “Today, we add Australia to our crypto-family and can gratefully say we have a presence in over 132 international crypto-economies, which speaks volumes to our community’s ambition. Australia is an ideal market for Zebpay’s services with its clear stance on regulation, openness to fintech innovation and thirst for crypto products."
Khurana said the "clarity of Australia’s regulatory atmosphere" made it an "appealing country" for expansion. The company acquired a AUSTRAC license from Australia's financial regulatory agency.
