Tarusha Mittal and Mohit Madan were running one of India's first Etherium exchanges — ethx.co — when the Reserve Bank of India banned Indian banks from supporting crypto transactions.

So, the duo decided to pivot and built a fintech app that recorded transactions on the blockchain, allowing users to diversify their portfolios beyond traditional assets by investing in multiple digital assets such as digital gold and silver. This was the genesis for OroPocket.

The startup maintains reserves of gold and silver, which are allocated to a user when they purchase it digitally. Ownership and future transactions are all recorded on the Ethereum, Tezos and Polygon blockchains. 

“When these transactions are recorded on the blockchain, anyone can see it, and thus there is more transparency and security," Tarusha explains.

Further, it provides customers with financial services on top of these investments, helping make the assets liquid.
