Understanding the Fees Structure of CoinDCX

Understanding CoinDCX Fees Structure


With the massive introduction of the crypto space in India mostly after the revoking of the Banking ban imposed by the RBI back in 2018, the Indian mass was looking for understanding what crypto is and how to dive in. Taking the market scenario in mind, CoinDCX, India’s most valuable crypto investment app was launched. The brand, since its inception, has been dedicated to making crypto accessible in a simple way. Through the years, CoinDCX has solved numerous problems faced by the Indian crypto community with solutions around crypto investing, crypto trading & crypto literacy.

Now that the crypto ecosystem has been a subject of interest by the institutions and the Indian Government, there have been a lot of procedures that are being set. A huge part of it is the different modes of fees that users have to pay. CoinDCX, being the consumer first brand, has worked around offering a very transparent fee structure, making it a favorite among traders. To understand the different forms of CoinDCX fees you might face, here is a quick rundown of them.

As a step towards making the trading fee structure better, CoinDCX has introduced a Dynamic Fee Structure! The structure introduces a fee method where an individual’s transaction fee will depend on their previous 30-day INR transaction volume. 

This step to introduce a new structure is to further strengthen CoinDCX’s promised efforts in providing its users with the safest and simplest crypto trading experience.

Introducing the new dynamic fee structure

To simply explain the Dynamic Fee Structure, the higher the trading volume, the lower will be the trading fees. This new feature has a tiered structure set in place for easier understanding.

For example, if the total INR trading volume from 2nd to 31 August 2022, i.e. for 30 days, is INR 7,00,000, then the transaction fees applicable for the same on 1 September, 2022, will be 0.4%, i.e., Level 2 of the Dynamic Fee Structure
