1 to 5 BTC or ETH limit is there for trading platform.
But for safety you can send BTC ETH to other wallet.
I prefer hardware wallet, but hardware are prone to physical damage for long term. Online wallet also have similar limit. But I don’t know anything about charges for wallet online.

I need clarification on few points. if someone can help. it would be awesome.

1. heard that Binance is best to trade but not availabe in India.

2. Cheapest way to use Binance, we can load money to zebpay, then convert to some coin(I think TRX), then send to Binance.

3. same process can be used with CoinDCX and WazirX also.

4. Someone told me that WazirX can directly be linked to Binance and we should transfer all money to Binance and do the trade.

Please suggest.
