Sanju shared his life journey from Kerala to Singapore. He said, “I worked in various IT firms in Kochi, but a passion to make something different grew in me gradually. I was fascinated with finance. By 2018, I moved to Bengaluru to explore the potential in computer engineering. Later, I started thinking about cryptocurrency. In my pursuit of my dream, I met Darshan Bathijia, a native of Coimbatore. We discussed the possibility of marketing cryptocurrencies. He was passionate about the field and started Vauld. com jointly in Bengaluru on December 31, 2018”.

Sanju, chief technology officer of the firm, shared about his cryptocurrency business. He said, “In India, dealing in cryptocurrencies is not favored much. Many frauds have been reported in the field. The laws in India are weak to manage such firms. Hence, the startup was registered in Singapore and we operated it from Bengaluru. In Singapore, crypto deals are regulated by government laws. So, we shifted to Singapore by mid-2019”. He added, “In the initial stage, customers used Vauld.com for purchasing and selling cryptocurrencies like bitcoin and ethereum. We now plan to convert Vauld into a neo-bank like any of the nationalized banks in India”.
