This partnership will help the Unocoin users to select the “Buy Bitcoin” tab and choose ‘Netbanking’ as the mode of payment along with the required details and confirm the order.
On successful completion of the transaction, the user will be credited with their Bitcoin immediately into their Unocoin Wallet. The PayUBiz payment gateway would facilitate the transaction with PCI-DSS compliance, ensuring complete security of the transactions.

The company recently launched its mobile app which is a full featured mobile bitcoin app. The app offers 24/7 access to real-time bitcoin market prices and instantaneous trading transactions.
