Altcoin Exchanges

Using Indian exchanges, you can only trade in a limited number of cryptocurrencies using INR. Your options are very less. However, there are many other cryptocurrencies with huge potential which are not yet listed on Indian exchanges. Most of them would be listed on pure cryptocurency exchanges (exchanges which do not transact in FIAT money). I have compiled a list of all such exchanges below. I have also mentioned the number of cryptocurrencies that are available in each of the exchanges as well as the requirements to register and other details for each. I have also provided links to access those exchanges. 

Each exchange has its own advantage over the others in terms of usage and available cryptocurrencies. My recommendation to you would be to register in ALL the exchanges so that you have lots of options to choose and benefit from.
