The amount burnt this quarter was tied to WazirX exchange volume and its growth. In the past quarter, WazirX crossed over $6.1 Billion in USD trading volume which is the highest across any Indian Exchange so far.

Also, the WazirX team introduced a bunch of new features and announcements to keep the community engaged.

  • India’s first-ever weekly crypto show presented by WazirX and CNBC-TV18 was announced last quarter.

  • WRX price rallied from Rs 30 to Rs 400 and above.

Let me quickly explain what is a burn event and why is it beneficial for token holders. The burning of tokens leads to a reduction in token supply and with each quarterly burn the supply will further keep reducing. As more and more use-cases of the token start to come up, people will be keen to invest more in the project which is a good thing for long-term believers of the project.
