Unicoin: everything you need to know about the unicorn-powered cryptocurrency
“I feel that for people that were curious about cryptocurrency and unaware, and even for people that feel they’re experts, listening to some of these answers will have further illuminated them,” says Chris Diamantopoulos towards the end of the new episode of Unicorn Hunters, the business TV series that has been revolutionizing the way investors and high-potential businesses connect since May 2021.
The reality show is a pioneer in the genre of “enrichtainment” (a blend of entertainment and wealth generation). It’s already featured a range of companies with highly innovative and disruptive profiles in sectors related to biotechnology, artificial intelligence, fitness and climate change solutions.
Unlike other episodes of the show, the first programme in the new season puts the focus on Unicoin, a latest-generation cryptocurrency that’s been designed to avoid the volatility that’s so typical of other digital assets. Diamantopoulos, a social entrepreneur and actor known for his role in the HBO series Silicon Valley, is guest host on the special, and each of the “hunters” reveals the what, how and why of Unicoin in their own way.
Hunters with answers
“Bitcoin was created by an anonymous person to provide anonymity to people who wanted to hide their financial transactions. And even though anonymity proved to be quite a sizable demand on the market, many more investors are interested in stability and returns.” Alex Konanykhin’s answer about bitcoin clears up many frequent doubts shared by people on both sides of the screen. And the panel soon begins to outline the strengths of Unicoin. Konanykhin, CEO of TransparentBusiness and one of the creators of Unicorn Hunters, isn’t the only member with high expectations for a cryptocurrency that aims to connect potential investors with potential unicorns in future years.
Rosie Rios, the former US treasurer and one of the members of the Unicorn Hunters jury, is well attuned to the current scenario facing the cryptocurrency world. “When interest rates rise, investments change,” she notes. And, noting that Bitcoin is a floating asset, she says of Unicoin: “Everyone has to assess their own level of risk, but, for me personally, I like the fact that it is a securitized digital asset. It’s tied to these emerging growth companies, and it’s tied to this show.”
Why Unicoin and why now
Some 83% of all millionaires aged under 40 have invested in a blockchain-backed cryptocurrency, and Joe Biden this year became the first US president to sign an executive order instructing the Federal Reserve to regulate digital currencies. These are just two details illustrating a global trend towards the expansion of cryptocurrencies that come up in the episode while Diamantopoulos, as presenter, resolves different questions with each member of the Circle of Money.
It comes to Silvina Moschini, an entrepreneur and also co-founder and president of Unicoin, to answer an apparently simple question: “What would you say to someone to encourage them to invest in this cryptocurrency?”
“One of the things they need to look at is who is behind the company they will be investing in and also the size of the opportunity. When you enter early on in a company, like what we are doing now with Unicoin at 10 cents per dollar, you have a significant opportunity to multiply exponentially your return,” Moschini explains.
As well as Konanykhin, Ríos and Moschini, the Unicorn Hunters Circle of Money features the NFL legend and Hall of Famer Cris Carter, the artist and investor Lance Bass and the former White House principal advisor Moe Vela.
Social media ambassadors
In parallel with the launch of the new season of Unicorn Hunters, social media influencers have the chance to become Unicoin ambassadors through the Unicoin 100 initiative. This is an opportunity for digital creators to monetize their content while driving an affiliate program for the new cryptocurrency through their own social networks.
The initial incentive is 100 free Unicoins and the creators will receive optimized content from the Unicorn Hunters YouTube channel about the companies being supported by the platform through their phases of consolidation and growth.
