Mitesh Shah, Co-Founder, Inflection Point Ventures says, “Crypto and other digital assets are fast gaining popularity in India; however, many aspiring investors of this asset class still find it difficult to understand the trading in such assets. Because these assets are built on Web3 and pillars of decentralization, the system by nature is designed to be trustless as it is completely automated. Hence, there is a need for a safe, fast and efficient trading platform which can be adopted by enterprises to profit from by enabling digital asset trading. Rooba is addressing this large untapped market, which we believe will experience an exponential growth in the next 24 months.”
The platform comprises an institutional-grade layer 2 network and a Threshold Multi Party Computation Wallet that will let customers manage their assets without the need to ever create or manage a private key.
