Ultra’s Mainnet is Here!

We’re proud and humbled to announce that today, Ultra’s blockchain technology is feature complete and ready for primetime! Together with 7 Block Producers from around the world, we’ll be launching Ultra’s Mainnet on the 29th of June and opening Ultra’s network to the public.

Ultra’s blockchain journey

When building the Ultra platform, we recognized in the beginning that existing blockchain solutions didn’t offer the technology had a need to power the next-generation gaming ecosystem we envisioned. The solutions that are available are either too complicated for end-users, unreliable, too slow, or just too costly and inadequate to meet our business needs. With a solid team behind us and an unwavering determination to undertake our vision, Ultra’s blockchain was created.

To acquire a better idea of what we deemed necessary for Ultra’s blockchain during the development of the ecosystem, let’s take a look at our hard requirements:

  • Ease of use and reliability
  • Low operational cost
  • Tax compliance
  • Regulatory compliance
  • Security and intellectual property protections
  • No transaction fees
  • No onboarding fees
  • High transaction throughput

We acknowledged that blockchains are mainly designed for finance apps and because of that, users have to jump through hoops to interact with apps. Yes, we could’ve just built the platform on an existing blockchain and called it a day but we refused to take the simple way out and have our future users deal with the limitations that come with it.

If you know anything about Ultra, you know that we thrive in challenging environments and work tirelessly to ensure our service is usable by everybody else, everywhere. Of course, designing and developing a blockchain solution that meets each one of our requirements was no small feat, but we have 65+ talented, passionate, and hard-working downline putting their heads right down to provide all that’s necessary for our team, community, and partners.

We’re proud to say Ultra has created a revolutionary turnkey blockchain solution that will breathe a new life in the gaming and entertainment industries. Today’s announcement marks an important milestone for Ultra and brings us one step closer to delivering a fully-fledged blockchain infrastructure that’s capable of empowering apps with NFTs and trustless services, usable by positively any gamer or game developer.

Ultra’s infrastructure aims to become the gold standard for both developers and large corporations looking to enter the blockchain space.

Ultra’s client is really a full-fledged ecosystem designed to provide all gaming needs in one single application and includes:

  • Ultra Games , a blockchain-powered games distribution platform
  • Ultra Games Dev Center , a self-service game developer right back office, created to manage and publish games
  • Ultra NFT , a custom business-centric regulatory compliant NFT standard
  • Ultra Wallet , a cryptocurrency and NFT wallet with cross-chain asset swap capabilities
  • Ultra Authenticator , an universal blockchain transaction manager
  • Ultra Cloud , an SDK for games and apps
  • Ultra Chronos , a queryable blockchain history database

Launching Mainnet is just the start

Launching Ultra’s Mainnet is a huge milestone, but it doesn’t stop there. There’s a lot ahead of us that we’re excited about.

Firstly, in July anyone will be able to download the Wallet-Only client to create a free account and reserve their username. Once you’ve created your Ultra account, downloaded the customer, and logged in, you’ll have a working blockchain account and access to one application: The Ultra Wallet. We decided to give everyone use of the Ultra Wallet ahead of the platform launches so everybody else can perform token swaps from ERC20 UOS token native UOS (and vice versa) as quickly as possible. This will also allow you to purchase UOS coins with a charge card, as well as receive and send UOS coins.

In the Ultra Wallet, you’ll also look for a personal referral link that can be used when bringing new users to Ultra. You will receive 2% of the revenue generated from any game or DLC purchases made on Ultra Games by users that used your link and it’ll be delivered to your wallet. You’ll get an additional 1% of the revenue generated if anyone you referred refers other users. We’ll be providing more information about the longevity and parameters surrounding the referral link ahead of the Wallet-Only client release!

As the platform opens up to the general public, those individuals who have downloaded the Wallet-Only client will receive automatic updates with features such as Ultra Games, the NFT Marketplace, and much more being made accessible.

Our second phase of the closed beta, Wave 2, will commence shortly after the release of the public client! This means more community members and some influencers will get access to additional features within the platform and you will be able to purchase games and play them directly within the Ultra client.

We’ll be going over the facts of Wave 2 in the coming weeks!

As you can imagine, we’re eager to share more in what we’ve built and will explore the Ultra blockchain, developer onboarding, token swaps, and what’s to come next so keep your eyes peeled!

We want to say a massive thank you to everyone who has supported us with this journey so far and assure you that this is just the start. Ultra started out as an idea. An idea so big that it took patience, dedication, and trust to make it happen. We’re unraveling each part of Ultra’s infrastructure as time goes by to make this new era of gaming altcoins true reality for everyone.
