Zebpay Marketing

For the start, Zebpay has planned a good marketing scheme of offering zero fee deposits and zero maker fees. Also, the exchange is rewarding 0.25% of every transaction to its users till the 31st of December this year. Users can currently trade BTC to EURO, ETH to BTC, LTC to BTC, XRP to BTC, BCH to BTC, EOS to BTC and TRX to BTC. The new Bitcoin hardfork BSV is currently excluded from the list.

 

Zebpay Entities:

Zebpay is currently registered as Awlencan Innovations Malta Limited in Malta for its exchange and also registered in Singapore as Zeb Ventures Pte Ltd for buying and selling of cryptocurrencies on its mobile application or Zebpay App.

 

No Registrations from India:

Zebpay has clearly declared that it is not accepting any new registrations from India, the country where Zebpay originated. Cryptocurrency banking is still prohibited in India and there are rumors all around the country that the government is soon going to declare cryptocurrencies totally illegal which means that no one would be allowed to trade or even store any cryptocurrency such as bitcoin.
