DASH (DASH) is one of the fastest digital currencies in the crypto space. It offers a seamless payment method for users in the crypto ecosystem, allowing them the privacy and user-friendliness of cash with the security of the blockchain. It was first developed in 2014 by Evan Duffield under the original name XCoin, which was later changed to DASH, meaning ‘Digital Cash.’

Step 3: Complete your KYC

You’re free to explore the app and get the hang of the features at this juncture. If you want to start investing right away, you’ll need to complete your KYC (Know Your Customer) process. This step is mandated by the Government of India and is required to verify your identity with your bank and our servers. To complete this step, head on to the ‘Profile’ section of the app in the bottom right corner and click on ‘User Verification’.

  • Enter your name, PAN number, date of birth, and your email address for primary verification of your identity. Once this is done, you will be asked to upload your PAN card’s picture along with a picture of a government-issued ID card to complete the verification.

It takes a moment for the app to register and verify everything, and once it’s done, we’ll send you an email to let you know. Voila! You’re ready to start trading/investing in your favourite cryptocurrencies now.

Step 5: Add bank details

To transfer funds from your bank account to the CoinSwitch app, you need to provide the app with the relevant details. These include your account number and IFSC code only. The app sends Rs. 1 to your account to verify if the details are correct and if they are, the account is linked to your profile.

Note: We encourage you to perform all transactions relating to your CoinSwitch account with your registered bank account only to avoid unnecessary mixups. If you want to change your bank account, go to the ‘Bank Details’ section under Profile and click ‘Edit’.

CoinSwitch Kuber is one of the only crypto exchanges in the country that seamlessly allows you to transfer funds to the app by Net Banking or UPI. For Net Banking:

  • Transfer money to the given bank account details on the app through your preferred transfer mode. The funds will reflect in your wallet as soon as we receive them. The process may take up to 48 hours to complete. Note: Please ONLY use your registered bank account to transfer funds through Net Banking. If you use an unregistered bank account, it may take us up to 7 days to refund your money back.

  • Enter the amount you want to transfer and your preferred UPI ID
  • CoinSwitch will send you a request on your UPI app
