Neblio Technologies, which runs cryptocurrency trading platform CoinDCX, has launched an online educational service DCX Learn.

The platform, which aims to cater to both beginners and advanced users, provides access to learning materials such as online courses, interactive lectures, quizzes and guides for topics such as blockchain, cryptocurrency, economics and security, as per a statement.

The content on DCX Learn will also be supported by collaborators including CryptoKanoon, CoinCrunch, Inlox Network and Cashaa, the statement added.

The platform launch comes at a time when the central government reportedly plans to introduce a law to ban cryptocurrencies, months after the Supreme Court quashed a Reserve Bank of India notice that prevented banks from dealing in the digital currency.

“With the potential to accelerate financial inclusion in India, as well as opening gateways to new forms of investing, cryptocurrencies can benefit everyone. However, for Indians to take full advantage of crypto, we need to lay the groundwork through appropriate education. With DCX Learn, we want to arm users with the knowledge necessary to navigate crypto markets,” Sumit Gupta, co-founder and CEO of CoinDCX, said.

Gupta set up CoinDCX in 2018 with fellow India Institute of Technology, Bombay, alumnus Neeraj Khandelwal. The company provides liquidity aggregation and is integrated with global exchanges such as Binance, Huobi and OKEx.

It last raised capital in May, when returning investor Polychain Capital invested $2.5 million in the company, along with new investor Coinbase Ventures. 

Last month, CoinDCX chose Palo Alto headquartered digital asset trust and security company BitGo as its custodian. Custodians are third-party storage and security service providers for cryptocurrencies. 

In April, Hong Kong-based payments platform Crypto.com said it would list its CRO token on CoinDCX.
