New Delhi [India], Dec 1 (ANI): India's leading 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 all in one place, from any remote device.

It becomes the first company in India to offer a full featured mobile bitcoin app, with 24/7 access to real-time bitcoin market prices and instantaneous trading transactions. The implementation is timely because bitcoin adoption is rapidly ascending in India, coupled by government's decision to demonetize Rs. 500 and 1000 notes.

The implementation of a mobile app aligns with Unocoin's mission in enhancing mainstream adoption and help bring bitcoin into the hands of billions.

"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 Co-Founder and CMO of Unocoin, Abhinand Kaseti.

The app will include the buy and sell pairing for BTC/INR, mobile/DTH (Direct to Home Satellite Program) recharge, SIP (Systematic Investment Plan) access.

Unocoin has also released its POS (Point of Sale) app on both App Store and Play Store to enable physical stores to accept bitcoin as a mode of payment about six months ago.

"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," added Kaseti.

The Unocoin wallet app requires iOS 7.0 or later for iPhone, iPad and iTouch users, and Jelly Bean or later for Android users. (ANI)
