How to start a bitcoin exchange in India?

Personally, I would list four prerequisites that you must go through before you start a bitcoin exchange platform. These are: Legality, Banking, volume and tech & security.
In India, cryptocurrency plays the role of schrodinger’s cat. Schrodinger’s cat is a famous paradox used in quantum physics. It is used to explain the duality of matter, i.e. matter existing both as a particle as well as a wave. In this thought experiment, a cat, poison and a radioactive material are placed inside a box. Physicists agree that unless the box is opened, the cat is both simultaneously dead and alive. Similarly in India, Cryptocurrency is both legal and illegal. While the RBI has not banned cryptocurrency and its trading, they have repeatedly warned everyone to not engage in cryptocurrency. The RBI has yet to take a stand firm for or against cryptocurrency and at this time, the decision can go either way.
Since, you are engaging in a cryptocurrency exchange platform, it is vital that you select the best bank for all your transactions. Depending upon whether you plan to operate globally or nationally, it becomes very important that you sit with the bank personal and share every details regarding your financial plans.
Do note that banks do not approve of cryptocurrency, therefore there might be banks that do not cater or provide assistance/service to digital currency (cryptocurrency) exchanges. Now a days, many people are engaging in a cryptocurrency exchange platform.
