Congratulations! You’re here! Cryptocurrency is no longer this complex, mysterious financial revolution that everyone else is talking about.

You don’t need to be an Elon Musk level Billionaire or an anonymous master hacker to enter the world of Bitcoin and Crypto. In fact, with the right partner to sort out the nitty gritties for you, it’s as simple as trading stock or investing in real estate or Gold. All you need to know is how to use the CoinSwitch Kuber app!
You must be wondering why 6 million Indians have made us their Crypto app of choice. Well, we deliver you the best cryptocurrency trading experience ever. We pride ourselves on being user-driven – catering to your needs in the simplest, most no-nonsense way possible.
Our app is the easiest way to get into Crypto, but yeah, even the simplest of things need to come with an instruction manual, right?
Here’s our super-quick guide on how you can get started on CoinSwitch Kuber and become a Crypto Rockstar! (Or a Crypto pro at the very least 😛)

The Fastest KYC Ever
Here’s the deal. Cryptocurrencies themselves are built on strong blockchain ledgers, which means that each transaction is transparent, immutable and decentralized.
However, Crypto regulations are still a work in progress worldwide, and India is no exception. One of the hard and fast rules in this state of flux is that Crypto transactions have to be accounted for so that the government knows what’s going on.
Which is why you, our valued user, have to tell us who you are. Cryptocurrency is legal in India, but the government doesn’t want Crypto to get into the hands of anyone with an illegal bent of mind, and neither do we.
Don’t worry about it, though, because our KYC process is super fast and super easy (Definitely much easier than filing your taxes!)
What do you need to have ready?
Any one of your Aadhar Card, Driving License or Passport
A phone with a front camera
Once you have these ready, it’s a simple three-step process.
Check out the video below to see how to go about it.
Here’s how to use the CoinSwitch Kuber app
1. Depositing Money into your CoinSwitch Wallet
Once you’ve linked your bank account to your CoinSwitch profile, making transactions is just a matter of a few clicks. You’ll find the ‘Deposit INR’ option on the top right of your home screen, as well as at the top of your Portfolio section.
We support UPI transactions, which means you can make direct deposits using payment apps like Google Pay, Phone Pe and others.
You can also make direct deposits from your registered bank account. This can be done via NEFT, RGS or IMPS.
2. Choosing your First Crypto
To buy Crypto, you need to go to the Market section on CoinSwitch Kuber. Here you’ll find all the Cryptocurrency that we currently have listed, along with important information such as price charts, market rank, market cap, circulating supply and trading activity. You can see the Top Gainers and Top Losers in this section. To make it easier for you to monitor Cryptocurrency that you want to buy, you can add them to your personalized Watchlist – As simple as adding your favourite songs to a playlist.
Once you’ve bought Crypto, it will show up on the Portfolio section of the app. Here you can see what your wallet looks like, with a list of the Cryptocurrency that you currently own. This section is where you need to check out essential details like your current investment value, initial invested value, gain or loss percentage (both on individual Coins and your total investment) and total INR balance.
3. Buying and Selling Crypto
When you choose to buy a cryptocurrency or sell it, you have an additional choice of how you want to buy or sell based on your unique trading needs and what you feel will get you maximum gains.
We currently support three types of orders –
Market Order – Buy or sell your specified amount of Crypto instantly at the current market buy price.
Limit Order – Set a specific price to buy or sell a particular Cryptocurrency, and we will execute the order automatically when it hits that price. Read this article to know more.
Once you have sold your Crypto and made some gains, you can transfer your earnings straight to your registered bank account. Worried about CoinSwitch Kuber withdrawal fees? Well, you’ll be glad to know there’s no such thing. There are no CoinSwitch Kuber fees that you need to pay for deposits, trading or withdrawals. All you need to do to withdraw is –
Go to your Portfolio
Tap on Total INR Balance
Tap on Withdraw at the bottom right
Enter your desired amount
Tap on Withdraw
