Zebpay is on a mission to #SetCryptoFree. We’ve done this over our five-year history through all the innovations we brought to the crypto world. Batching on-chain transactions, removing exchange trading fees, and being the first global exchange to rollout the Lightning Network to over 3 million users are some of our best achievements as part of this vision.
Given the warm welcome Australian crypto industry has shown us this past week since our launch on May 7th, it is clear to us that Australia is special. The enthusiasm in the community, support of government and regulators for this industry and the forward-thinking approach is set to catapult Australia into a major innovation hub and a significant player in the crypto industry. We look forward to playing a part in this narrative.
Zebpay is probably the first exchange in Australia to offer Lightning Network payments. It would be our honor and privilege if we can facilitate your first ever lightning network transaction. To make it even more compelling for early bird users of Zebpay Australia, here is a welcome offer.
It’s simple, for a limited time, Zebpay Australia users receive a one time AUD 30 bonus on FIAT deposit worth AUD 100 or more. The bonus amount is straightaway deposited in your Zebpay wallet soon after your AUD deposit. Visit this link to know more.
As part of our campaign to #SetCryptoFree, Zebpay has brought expansive innovation in 132 countries across the world. We recently launched support for Lightning, you can learn more about it here and also make a test payment.

Zebpay will soon stop supporting AE and ZIL tokens.
Cryptocurrency is evolving — organisations are finding ways to improve functionality and build more efficient services on their blockchains. As part of this movement to innovate, many cryptocurrencies are migrating from ERC20 tokens towards their own blockchains.
Zebpay’s exchange operations are not available in India at the moment, and Aeternity (AE) and Zilliqa (ZIL) aren’t accessible for trading. We will soon stop supporting these tokens on Zebpay entirely, since their migration towards mainnet will require an architectural overhaul.
Aeternity Moves to Mainnet
Zebpay users holding Aeternity ERC20 tokens in their Zebpay wallet must withdraw their tokens from Zebpay.
Once withdrawn to their own wallet, users can migrate their ERC20 AE tokens at any point before September 2019 to the mainnet. Follow their guide to migrate these tokens to the mainnet. Zebpay will only support these tokens until 2 weeks before the freeze.
Zilliqa Moves to Mainnet
Zebpay users holding Zilliqa ERC20 tokens in their Zebpay wallet must withdraw their tokens from Zebpay.
At the moment, Zilliqa token holders require no action on their part to be migrated to the ZIL mainnet, as there will be a token swap in this case. The Zilliqa token swap is expected to be completed by June 2019, and ERC20 ZIL tokens will be frozen thereafter. Zebpay will only support these tokens until 2 weeks before the freeze.
We therefore advise all Zebpay users to withdraw their AE and ZIL tokens from Zebpay to their own wallets, to continue to have ownership of their assets.
As part of our campaign to #SetCryptoFree, Zebpay has launched zero crypto trading fees in over 131 countries across the world. We recently launched support for Lightning, so make your first Lighting payment on Zebpay!

We are excited to announce that Zebpay is launching its Lightning Network integration. Starting today, Zebpay customers from around the world can use the BTC balances on their Zebpay wallet to make payments in a flash on the Lightning Network.
Zebpay is rolling out the Lightning feature to all app users starting today
Zebpay users can start using Lightning immediately by signing into their wallet and activating the Lightning tab.
This historical success marks our first entrance into the Lightning Network space for public use. We are the first major exchange to permit payments through the Lightning Network. Zebpay users can make up to 10 transactions a day with amounts as low as 1 Satoshi. The maximum permitted transaction value is 0.001 BTC.
Zebpay is built by a group of believers who have committed their careers to set crypto free. It is only natural that we are super excited by the possibilities that Lightning brings. Today reflects the first step taken by us to bring this technology to the fingertips of every smartphone user.
“Making Bitcoin technology widely accessible is a key component of our roadmap. Today, with the integration of the Lightning Network, we have taken yet another step in this direction,” said Ajeet Khurana, CEO, Zebpay.
Setting Crypto Free
As we continue on our mission of setting crypto free from the shackles of trading fees, we are committed to keep the cost of adopting this technology low for users across the globe. Zebpay would bear the transaction cost for all lightning transactions done from its wallet and continue to evangelise this technology.
Anyone, Anywhere at No Cost
Crypto enthusiasts around the world can pay anywhere where Lightning is supported and buy virtually anything by identifying the store, copying or scanning the invoice of the product or service, and finalizing the payment — all within milliseconds.
With Lightning, Bitcoin payments are made in a flash
Hard forks have been exciting yet tumultuous events in the crypto ecosystem. Given the decentralised nature of blockchain technology, we expect new coins and tokens would emerge in the future. With each fork, it’s natural to have some questions regarding how various services will be affected. This post is here to give clarity about Zebpay’s support of various hard blockchain forks and how our policy can affect our users.
The vision that influences our stance
While we continue to recommend users to store their cryptocurrencies in wallets where they control their own private keys, Zebpay has always been a safe place to store digital assets. We take pride in our security practices and our incident-free operation since inception. Over 3 million people have trusted Zebpay to securely trade in billions of dollars worth of their crypto assets. Our stance on hard forks aims to reflect this.
TL;DR: Any coins we recover from a fork will be rightfully credited to your wallet!
How does Zebpay deal with hard forks?
The most important factors that determine our hard fork policy are:
Consensus in the community — do all stakeholders overall support the forked coin?
Price of coins — does the community agree to marketable prices for the forked coin?
Security vulnerabilities in the protocol or client software — is it safe to distribute to Zebpay users?
Frequency of commits to the core protocol code repository — are the developers of the fork active?
Technical feasibility — how difficult is it for Zebpay to implement?
Liquidity of the asset — is the coin being actively traded by consumers?
If Zebpay decides to recover the coins, it WILL credit the coins to all the eligible users who held the coin being split at the time of the fork. If Zebpay chooses not to support a hard fork coin, it will not recover the new coins being created.
As a practice, Zebpay might decide to pause operations before and after the fork, to ensure the safety of user funds.
When will forked coins not be credited?
Zebpay might not credit forked coins to users with a balance below a certain minimum limit, if it is not possible or impractical to recover the coins. This limit will depend on each hard fork but is designed to be as small as operationally feasible.
When would I get my new coins after a supported fork?
Zebpay operates with multi-layered security protocols while undertaking a high volume of transactions. Given our robust processes and unconditional support towards user security, we aren’t poised to immediately credit new coins after a hard fork.
Depending on several factors, this process can take a few days, weeks or more. We always make proactive announcements on our social and support channels regarding the timeline, in the case of every fork. However, users who want to access the coins immediately after the fork should withdraw the coins from Zebpay to a wallet in which they control the private keys.
Here’s our core message regarding hard forks: We won’t add any asset which would put at risk the security of customer funds held on Zebpay, or any asset that violates our strict compliance programs. On a case by case basis, where it’s both feasible and safe, users can expect to receive forked assets that they rightfully own.
Setting Cryptos Free — Introducing Zero Trading Fees on ZebpayZebpay v3 With Zero Trading Fees
As part of Zebpay’s continued commitment to the international crypto community — starting today — all traders on the Zebpay exchange will now be able to participate in zero-fee trading in all 131 countries where the exchange is available.
The ethos of the Crypto space is all about empowering individuals through decentralization. In this scenario, we strongly felt that it wasn’t fair to tax the actions of these empowered individuals. That’s why we got rid of the trading fee entirely. No maker-fees. No taker-fees.
With any cryptocurrency exchange consumers pay around 0.25% commission per trade. While this may not seem like a hefty fee, for active traders who enter and exit positions on a frequent basis, exchange trading fees certainly add up and can eat into their trading profits. As for traders who aren’t super active on a daily basis, fees may dissuade them for becoming more participatory in the market.
By offering zero-fee trading, we act on our mission to liberate crypto from the shackles of trading fees, and to reduce the friction for all those who are new to crypto.
Zebpay does not require investors to have a minimum balance in their wallets and there are no limits to the amount of trades investors can make per day. Zebpay currently supports six of the leading cryptocurrencies with 11 trading pairs.
We are excited to be the first major exchange to offer zero-fee crypto trading and we hope the community makes the most of this!
Today, we are also releasing an all new brand identity, Zebpay v3. You will notice a refreshingly new Zebpay experience across the board.
