The Unocoin Saga: A Walk Through Memory Lane!
The story started with Canadian-born Sunny Ray, co-founder of Unocoin, who, out of sheer fascination for Bitcoin, initiated a blog site named “Unocoin” (Uno, a Spanish word meaning “one”). This journey took a significant turn when Sunny, during a community meet-up in Bangalore, crossed paths with Sathvik Vishwanath, a tech enthusiast with a profound interest in cryptocurrencies. Their shared thoughts and aligned ideas laid the foundation for India’s first cryptocurrency exchange.
The Initial Years:
While the world’s billionaires marveled at the fast-paced technology, India remained skeptical and speculative about cryptocurrencies. The initial years were a rollercoaster of ups and downs, seeking validation. The turning point came when Barry Silbert, a key figure in the crypto world, decided to invest in Unocoin, providing more than just financial support—a stamp of accreditation.
Attaining the Legal Right to Exist:
As Unocoin gained prominence among Indians exploring financial technology, the Indian Government, concerned about the uncertainty in the rapidly growing asset market, proposed a blanket ban on cryptocurrencies. This posed a significant challenge, leading some businesses to close shop. However, Unocoin’s third founder, Mr. Harish B. V., stood up against it and triumphed. The legal victory marked the beginning of a new era, validating the crypto space sought after for years.
A Decade Later:
Now, a decade later, the founding pillars remain strong, and Unocoin has experienced tremendous growth. The company continues to tirelessly work towards providing financial freedom to fellow Indians. As we celebrate the 10th anniversary, we look back at the milestones achieved and forward to many more years of innovation, growth, and the pursuit of financial inclusion.
