If you have already setup 2 factor authentication though Google authenticator, then no action is required from your end. Else if you have smart phone, please install Google authenticator app and activate the 2 factor authentication on Unocoin. Once you login, use the SECURITY link on the left hand menu to start up with the procedure and follow the instructions.

If you do not enable Google authentication by 1st of June 2015, then your Unocoin account will automatically have 2 factor authentication enabled using SMS. In this case, you will be asked for the 6 digit code that is sent to your registered mobile number as an SMS while you are logging in and when ever you are sending out bitcoins from your Unocoin wallet.

Posted at 7:05 pm on April 4, 2015 under Development

Systematic Investment Plan (SIP) is a new and exciting way to acquire bitcoin – the first of its kind that is introduced by Unocoin. This is a more conservative approach to investing in bitcoin than spending all your money on bitcoin at once. This technique allows you to commit to a fixed INR amount on bitcoin on a regular schedule regardless of the price. You can invest as little as 50 INR per interval. You need to fund your INR wallet and schedule the orders below to start with SIP. This feature helps with financial discipline by averaging out your cost and there by reducing risk resulting in generating better returns.
