If you are new to Bitcoin System then please read our earlier topic “What is Bitcoin and How it differs from Other Currencies?” once.
Most of the Bitcoin Selling Services in India provides you IMPS / NEFT bank transfer method so as to buy bitcoins. The risk is moderate in such cases, once the transfer is completed you can’t get the amount back in case of any fraud issues. Thus the best way is introducing mediator in between You and the Bitcoin Seller.
Today we are going to have a discussion on two different services which can be used in combination in order to purchase Bitcoins. Let’s have a little introduction on those Services.
Unocoin is one of the most popular Bitcoin Company in India. It’s very easy to Buy, Sell, Store, Accept, Use and Transfer Bitcoins using Unocoin. What exactly you need is Creating an Account on Unocoin and it is obviously Free of Cost. You will get your Wallet Address upon successful verification and confirmation of your Account.

- Unocoin provides you IMPS / NEFT Direct Bank Transfer method for purchasing Bitcoins. If you want to go ahead with Bank Transfer then there is no need of PayUMoney Account. Anyone can simply use the following Bank details of Unocoin to transfer funds and buy bitcoins. After the transfer is completed, provide them the Reference Number of Transaction via the form placed on their site.
