Sathvik Vishwanath, an MBA graduate from Melbourne Business School, is now a successful entrepreneur and has always put his heart into innovative and disruptive technology!
His business journey started with VentureNext in 2008, which was involved with custom scripting for the businesses in the virtual world called SecondLife. Since 2013, he heads Unocoin - the most popular bitcoin and crypto-asset platform in India and is serving about 1.3 M customers.
We’ve seen a dramatic increase of crypto adoption in India following the lifting of an industry-wide ban by the Reserve Bank of India enacted in 2018. Customer growth rates have surged by more than 10X in the month the supreme court verdict was announced, accompanied by a 5X increase in trading volume in subsequent months. The funding will help us scale our business further, and give us a strong financial foothold to expand our platform’s offerings. We will double down on our efforts to improve our product features and offerings, which will enhance the overall usability and functionality for our customers.28 October 2020
