Chennai: Giottus a customer-centric, all-in-one crypto investment platform that is changing
the way Indian investors trade their virtual digital assets. Giottus is the only bootstrapped
exchange in India to have achieved this feat. Founded in November 2017, Giottus opened
up for trade in April 2018 and has remained resilient through regulatory uncertainties over
In India, there are several platforms for you to trade or invest in crypto assets. The sheer
competition is brutal on the exchanges/platforms but is a boon for the customers because
they get a better product at the end. Now, while everyone must have heard of the big
names in the crypto industry, there is this exchange from Chennai called Giottus.
Here are the key features of Giottus that a crypto investor can take advantage of:
- Crypto users are used to having multiple accounts depending on their goals,
convenience and objectives. But moving around does not come free. There are fees
involved at every withdrawal. At Giottus, TRX withdrawal fees, for example, are free.
This makes the platform a very popular exchange among the advanced users who
are used to moving crypto assets all the time.
- Giottus is a zero-fee exchange. While unbelievable it may sound at first, let us see if
we are bluffing or not. Once you sign up and complete the KYC, bank verification,
there is an instant deposit feature available with zero fees. Once you do that, you
can buy the first BTC (with zero fees). Or, if you need to buy any other crypto, you
can either buy USDT or BTC again with zero fees or then buy whatever crypto you
want at zero fees again. Believable now, huh?
- When it comes to investment amounts, there is no right or wrong in the amount you
choose to invest in Bitcoin, if you invest less, you will make less. If you invest more in
BTC, then you get more returns. Same for losses too. The good thing about Giottus is
that you can invest from as low as Rs.10. If you are scared to go with big amounts of
money, Giottus lets you build trust first.
- Giottus has partnered with leading global exchange Bitfinex to provide deep
liquidity, which means you will be able to exchange your asset for fiat currency (INR)
anytime. To be honest, it depends on the interest of the users who want to trade
too, so the liquidity partly depends on the demand generated by the customers also.
It’s a two way street but we are one of the best in ensuring that.
- Security of customers is paramount to any business and Giottus is at the forefront of
that. Giottus has partnered with the Global leader in custodial service, Bitgo, to
ensure insurance protection to your investments. Cold wallets are secured by 100%
insurance against cyber thefts.
- Now to the subjective parts. Investing/trading is intuitive and straightforward as
Giottus designs every feature to hide the complexities that could confuse the new
investors. The KYC process is instant, and you can start investing within minutes of
submitting the KYC details. Well, sometimes, documents might get rejected and can
become frustrating but the support team is one of the best. Let’s look at that now.
- Giottus arguably has the best customer support in the industry and you get an
answer within 4 hours of raising a ticket. You can also converse in Hindi, Tamil,
Telugu, and Bengali, apart from English with our support team.
In line with its stated aim of making crypto investments easier and safe, Giottus has
launched investment products like Baskets, FD, and SIP.
Giottus Baskets are a curated, thematic selection of crypto assets. Starting at Rs.100,
Baskets let you invest in a set of crypto assets with one-click. Over the long term, baskets
represent the smartest way to invest in the growth of a theme such as DeFi, Metaverse etc.
Giottus SIPs allow investors to automate and schedule regular buys of popular crypto assets.
SIP is a proven method of beating volatility in an emerging market like crypto.

best APY rates of up to 20% on Tether-USDT, 30% on AXS, and 25% on APE. The advantage is
