Decentralized currency from India for India, South Asia and the world on Blockchain Technology. Created in 2016, Rupee is an open-source cryptocurrency based on the Litecoin source code (see Technical Specifications section for details). Rupee was initially launched in India by the developer Adam S. and made available on a few exchanges. To generate funds for development, Adam sold the majority of the pre-mined coins on an exchange at accessible prices, thus distributing the coins among a broader base (more details in the Technical Specifications section). In 2017, a motivated team from the US, Europe, India and Israel realized the potential of Rupee and started working on the project. They spearheaded a relaunch initiative in September 2017. It included additional team members, an improved placeholder website, streamlined social media, and marketing initiatives, an in-depth code and technology review and updates, Rupee development work, and the listing of Rupee on a new exchange (Cryptopia). Since then, our team of dedicated developers and marketers has been working hard to improve the code and make Rupee available on multiple exchanges. They developed a payment portal, partnered with multiple payment platforms, and much more (see the Roadmap for details).”
