Launching OTC Platform for high volume traders

Posted at 5:49 pm on August 30, 2016 under Development

A bitcoin-OTC is an over-the-counter marketplace for buying or selling bitcoin for traders looking to trade in bulk with the minimum order of 25 BTC. Each order placed on the OTC platform may be tailored to match based on parameters such as ‘greater than’, ‘less than’, or ‘equal to’ a reference price from popular platforms such as: coindesk, localbitcoins, bitstamp, btcxindia, zebpay etc.

For example: A customer may place an order to buy 50 BTC when the price is less than coindesk’s price by 100 INR and Unocoin shall give a call to the customer when Unocoin is able to honor such a request to get the re-confirmation and move with the execution of the order.

“The OTC feature will come as a relief to traders who wished to trade bitcoin in larger quantities and weren’t able to do so previously due to: 1) buy/sell limit or 2) low liquidity in Indian bitcoin exchanges. This was a service that more serious Indian bitcoin traders were lacking, until now.” says Harish B V, Co-Founder and CFO at Unocoin.

Earlier this month, Unocoin launched its iOS mobile app for traders which is being received well and the android app is set to launch shortly. Unocoin’s Merchant PoS mobile app also hit the market in July. “In the coming few months, we are aiming to launch more exciting services which will contribute towards building a stronger bitcoin ecosystem in India” says Sathvik Vishwanath, Co-Founder and CEO, Unocoin, “we are on a singular mission here, take bitcoin to billions.”

Unocoin is India’s leading bitcoin company, has 90,000+ customers and is growing at a rate of 10-20% month over month. Backers include Digital Currency Group, Drapers’ Boost, BankToTheFuture and is ranked among the top 20 FinTech companies in India by FinTech City. Unocoin makes it easy to securely buy, sell, store, use and accept bitcoin in India.

Launching Merchant PoS Mobile app to accept bitcoin

Posted at 2:46 pm on April 23, 2016 under Development

As Bitcoin takes a stand in India, the Unocoin team – India’s leading Bitcoin company – is about to make it easier for physical stores in India to accept bitcoin for products and services.

Over the past year, our web traffic has increased by more than 500%. We added more than 6,000 users just last month alone and our volume is skyrocketing. While the company’s vision is to bring bitcoin to billions, it is now aiming to make physical stores and merchants in India easier to accept bitcoin. This is presently unmarked territory in India. With our new mobile app that is both available on Play store for Android and Appstore for iOS, it’s all about to change.

Unocoin announces an epic launch of the mobile merchant application – called the “Unocoin PoS“, where PoS stands for Point of Sale. Early users are already calling it the world’s simplest Bitcoin PoS app and it is going to make payments much easier and smarter.

So what does it take for the merchant to start accepting bitcoin?

Step 1: The Indian merchant needs to sign up with Unocoin and get their account verified. Once complete, simply install the Unocoin PoS mobile app and scan the QR code on our website to pair the mobile app to the merchant account. Now they are ready to accept bitcoin from their customers and may begin calling himself/herself a smart merchant who now accepts Bitcoin. Scan the QR code below from your iOS or Android based mobile phone or tablet to get started with Unocoin PoS app installation.

Step 2: When a customer is willing to pay the invoice in bitcoin, the merchant simply opens the Unocoin PoS app, keys in the invoice amount and generates a QR code to accept bitcoin payment from the customer. The merchant may accept bitcoin directly into their app or share the payment instructions over email (or social media) to get paid if the customer is not physically present in the same location. The merchant will have an option to either keep the payment in bitcoin or to have it converted into INR and have the money sent to their bank account in the same business day. This enables cheaper, faster and reliable payments through a product that is designed for both merchants and users in mind. This truly is the new way to pay or get paid.
