OKX Ends Services in India
OKX clients in India must close positions by April end, then can only withdraw funds.

This shift is pivotal for OKX and its Indian users, showing regulatory frameworks’ impact on global crypto exchanges.

OKX’s Departure: A Regulatory Impact Case

The decision by OKX is a direct response to the evolving regulatory landscape in India. In March 2023, India included crypto exchanges in its anti-money laundering (AML) framework. Exchanges must register with FIU IND and follow its rules to operate in India due to regulatory changes.

By the end of 2023, unlike 28 registered companies, OKX hadn’t registered with FIU IND, failing to meet new regulations. Unregistered with FIU IND, OKX reevaluated and decided to withdraw from India’s market. This development is significant for several reasons:

  • It emphasizes regulatory compliance’s importance for exchanges:  As nations navigate crypto’s challenges and opportunities, regulatory compliance is key to exchanges’ success in these markets.
  • OKX’s exit from India warns both exchanges and regulators: For exchanges, it highlights the necessity of proactive engagement with regulatory frameworks and the potential consequences of non-compliance. For regulators, it highlights balancing consumer protection with digital asset sector growth.
