Indian Bitcoin company Unocoin has announced the launch of its new mobile app for both iOS and Android devices. Developed by Unocoin, the app will allow consumers to buy, sell, send, receive and store bitcoin in one place, from any remote device. The app provides unlimited access to real-time bitcoin market prices and instantaneous trading transactions.
The implementation of a mobile app furthers Unocoin’s mission to enhance mainstream adoption and help bring bitcoin to the masses. Unocoin’s app is currently live and is expected to accelerate demand for the cryptocurrency, particularly in a mobile-heavy market.
Abhinand Kaseti, Co-Founder and CMO of Unocoin, said: “As of now, there are more than 1 billion Indians who use mobile phones. More than 300 million use their phones regularly for accessing the internet. This trend is expected to go up by 56% per year. 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.”
After raising $1.5 million USD in October, Unocoin released the app shortly after implementing a robust new API. The company designed the app to include every feature already embedded into the company website. The app will include the buy and sell pairing for BTC/INR, mobile/Direct to Home Satellite Program recharge, and Systematic Investment Plan access. The company also previously released its Point of Sale app on both App Store and Play Store to enable physical stores to accept bitcoin as a mode of payment which went live about six months ago.
Kaseti added: “We built this app from the ground up, using our very own public API, to ensure security and ease of use. It is secure with TouchID for iOS devices and password access for Android devices, and boasts a one touch button for buying and selling bitcoin, complete with inbuilt conversion. The dashboard displays the users BTC wallet, with the option to send and request bitcoin, and the INR wallet, with the option to add and withdraw Indian Rupees. The dashboard also features a 24 hour price graph, address books, messaging capability and transaction progress and confirmations,”
The Unocoin wallet app requires iOS 7.0 or later for iPhone, iPad and iTouch users, and Jelly Bean or later for Android users.
