KuCoin, the People’s Exchange and your preferred platform to find the next crypto gem, is pleased to announce that we have become among the first global crypto exchanges to register with India's Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU).

It also reflects KuCoin’s unwavering commitment to expanding its footprint in key markets worldwide, including the burgeoning Indian cryptocurrency market.

A Leap Towards Regulatory Harmony and Enhanced Security

The Financial Intelligence Unit plays a pivotal role in the global fight against money laundering and financial crimes.

This cooperative stance enhances the integrity of the financial system, ensuring a safer and more transparent cryptocurrency market in India.

The registration with FIU-India underscores KuCoin's dedication to adhering to the regulatory frameworks essential for operating within India's crypto market. By becoming a Reporting Entity, KuCoin is not just aligning with India's financial regulations but also elevating the standards for user asset security and anti-money laundering (AML) practices. This alignment with the FIU is a testament to KuCoin's global strategy to foster a secure, regulated, and innovative cryptocurrency ecosystem.
