Zebpay is app-enabled cryptocurrency exchange and wallet provider headquartered in Singapore with registered office in Malta. [1][2][3]

The company was founded by Mahin Gupta in late 2012 under the name Buysellbitco.in and was India's first bitcoin exchange.[4][5] Later it was rebranded to Zebpay in September 2014 adding two more partners - Saurabh Agrawal and Sandeep Goenka.[6]

On September 28, 2018, Zebpay announced it was shutting down operations. [7] In a blog post, the company attributed its shut down to the Indian government's regulatory clampdown on cryptocurrencies.[8] In a press release Zebpay states that it continues to offer wallet services to existing users.[9]

In December 2018, Zebpay announced the launch of cryptocurrency exchange and wallet operations in Europe.[10]
