Sharing his views on the new development, Mr Sathvik Vishwanath, Co-Founder & CEO Unocoin said “Bitcoin as a barter asset is being accepted & traded by millions of users worldwide through this initiative we would like to educate the Indian audience about the multi-dimensional use of the cryptocurrency.”
“While there are tens of thousands of physical outlets and e-commerce portals accepting bitcoin as a mode of payment in the countries like the US, our country doesn’t have such acceptability yet. Our offering answers the popular question of where someone can spend bitcoin in India!” – He further adds
While the first and foremost reason a cryptocurrency like bitcoin got created is to allow users to do fast and free payments across the internet. While the bitcoin adoption takes some more time, this features by Unocoin forms an indirect way to pay using bitcoin on a popular e-commerce portal in India. Unocoin is providing its users with a diversified option of brands across sectors like travel, restaurants, lifestyle companies, clothes, accessories, hotels, and much more to use their Bitcoins as an alternative cash commodity. These vouchers can even make a fantastic gift to a loved one. All they have to do is to have to pass on the E-voucher information electronically or through printing it out and handing over the copy of the voucher.
