"We continue to deliver on this promise with millions of viewers and millions in investment requests and remain focused on becoming the most watched and impactful business series in the world."
"Unicorn Hunters is back bigger and bolder with new founders, new cast members, a live audience, special guests, and surprises. It has also upped the game with Unicoin, its official cryptocurrency which is a perfect extension of its mission to democratize access to investment," said Silvina Moschini, co-founder, president, and chairwoman of Unicorn Hunters and Unicoin. "Unicoin gives people the opportunity to invest in a diversified portfolio made up of the companies that are part of the Unicorn Hunters through a security token and gives founders who appear on the show the opportunity to receive even more funding to bring their ideas to life."
In February of this year, Unicorn Hunters launched Unicoin, a next-generation coin designed to solve extreme volatility, the major problem of traditional tokens. It is intended to be asset-backed and dividend-paying and this differentiation is especially relevant in today’s cryptocurrency market, which has experienced an unprecedented downturn. In the new episodes of Unicorn Hunters, founders who pitch the Circle of Money and obtain a yes from more than one panelist will receive Unicoins. Those who receive a commitment of investment from all the members of the Circle of Money will receive up to 10 million Unicoins.
"As a reality television show producer, I have always prided myself on taking risks, pushing the envelope, being ahead of the curve, and challenging audiences. I have always been a trendsetter, not a trend follower. And my goal was no different with my first streaming show, Unicorn Hunters," said Craig Plestis, executive producer of Unicorn Hunters. "This revolutionary new business program, which has a dynamic participatory element, is innovative and engaging and has the high-quality production values of a network show. I could not be prouder of the show, the panel, and the team behind Unicorn Hunters."
