Previous and Recent Developments
Bitcoin has a slow but a steady growth in India and Coinsecure, with other major Bitcoin exchanges in the country, has helped in strengthening the cryptocurrency’s adoption in the country.

Coinsecure up to this day, still, has the highest funding amongst other Bitcoin companies in the country.
One of the issues that Coinsecure has solved is the liquidity problem of Bitcoin in India. In a Cointelegraph interview to CTO Benson Samuel, he said that Coinsecure has proven to be one of the best startups in India and they have developed from being just an exchange to delivering a wallet and a merchant gateway too. He also mentioned Bitcoin has opened up the eyes of Indian people that there is an alternative to the traditional centralized financial system.
In March 2016, Coinsecure launch a new feature which allows Bitcoin users to create or give names to their own Bitcoin wallet. It was made possible through a partnership with Netki, a company that provides digital identity certificates to companies that use the blockchain technology. The main purpose of Coinsecure about this wallet naming is to make wallets easier and more reliable to use.
Early this year, Coinsecure collaborated with other Indian Bitcoin exchange Zebpay and Unocoin by forming an industry-wide organization named as the Blockchain and Virtual Currency of India. With this association, member companies can form regulatory frameworks and work together to move the Bitcoin industry in India forward, helping Indian people to adapt to the cryptocurrency.
