Two Students from South Asia Discover Joys of Rupaya

Ahmed and Wazir viewing their RUPX wallet

Two A Level students from South Asia explain how Rupaya is transforming their lives. Ahmed and Wazir were working on a class assignment when they saw advertisement for crypto currency and, being business students, it grabbed their attention. They were motivated to do some more research on this new technology. While on their searching journey they discovered Rupaya, the first south Asian crypto currency. After a lot more research they borrowed money to invest in the project so they could afford all the necessities required for their education.

According to Wazir their journey was full of surprises, they never thought that money could flow through the air like this and all they needed was a tool to grab it. He feels lucky that the advertisement popped up at the right time and they followed their gut instinct to invest in Rupaya.

Ahmed was very skeptical initially about purchasing a master node, but after receiving the rewards and looking at the active community he knows that they made the right choice in Rupaya.

Project Development

New Wallet UI

Last week we showed what the light theme of our new wallet UI will look like. This week we’re showing off the dark version of the wallet UI.

10k Masternode Competition — July

This month we required submissions for the 10k Masternode Competition to be made as a video on YouTube. Submissions were allowed, and encouraged, in any language, but had to be informative and include several pieces of key information.

Two excellent submissions have been received so far this month. Each chose to answer the competition requirements from a very different angle. Watch them below.

💡If you need a video translated: Turn on CC, then select the Gear Icon and choose Subtitles > Auto-Translate, and choose your language.

The July competition officially ends on July 31 at 11:59PM UTC, all submission links must be posted to the #10kmncompetition channel on our Discord by that time.
