Announcements | December 5, 2016 By:

Unocoin has launched of a mobile application for bitcoin trading for devices with iOS and Android operating systems.

It makes Unocoin the first company to offer a full featured mobile bitcoin app in India, which is seeing a surge in interest in cryptocurrency, in particular of late with the government’s decision to demonetize 500 and 1,000 rupee notes. Places like Mumbai and Bangalore are now seasoned technology hubs, and Unocoin knows the mobile market could potentially run to over a billion users.

“We focused on creating a design and interface that provided a seamless user experience on mobile. Customer satisfaction, easy navigation and user simplicity are the most important tenets to us, and we wanted to provide an even more convenient way for users to access and manage their digital currency portfolio when a home or work computer is out of reach,” said Abhinand Kaseti, co-founder and CMO of Unocoin.

The launch comes roughly two months after Unocoin closed a $1.5m funding round backed by both domestic and international investors. Unocoin had previously raised a smaller seed round in mid-2014.

Unocoin is the largest bitcoin trading platform in India.
