Here’s a fairly common scene in a lot of action movies:
A hero (usually male) is riding a bike (a fancy one) very fast while being chased by bad people. These goons aren’t just chasing him, but they are also firing bullets at him. Our hero ducks to dodge the bullet and miraculously dodges every bullet fired his way.

For the last couple of years, the price for 50 coins was ₹50. From September 25th, 2019, we are going to link the price of coins to USD. This will increase the price of 50 coins to approx ₹70. Also, the price will vary according to the USD-INR rate.
Why I wrote this post? After I sent the email announcing the price increase, most people just bought coins in bulk. Others mailed us suggesting it’s wrong to increase the price - and we were violating their trust.
