Buying UOS with credit card on Ultra is as easy as 1,2,3

We announced our partnership with Simplex in April and now that the wallet-only client is up and running, we’re expanding the Ultra Wallet’s functionality.

To add UOS directly to your Ultra Wallet, you’ll no longer have to spend time purchasing it on an exchange and transferring it to your Ultra Wallet account. Instead, you can simply use Simplex within the platform to buy UOS with a credit card.

To purchase UOS within the platform, follow these simple steps:

  1. Download Ultra and create an account if you haven’t already
  2. Head to the Ultra Wallet application within the platform
  3. Click “Buy UOS Coins”
  4. You will be redirected to Simplex
  5. Select Ultra (UOS) in the dropdown menu
  6. Insert the amount of UOS you wish to purchase and your Ultra Wallet address (make sure to double check that you have entered the correct Ultra Wallet address)
  7. Proceed with your payment on Simplex’s page
  8. Complete Simplex’s KYC process

And that’s it, you’re all set! You’ll receive the UOS you purchased directly in your Ultra Wallet within 1–30 minutes.

Making the Ultra platform accessible to all gamers

Ultra provides users with the freedom to buy games and NFTs in whichever way they’d like. The integration of Simplex adds another level of choice, with users being able to buy games and NFTs with the UOS that they’ve purchased through Simplex, directly within the Ultra platform.

“There are 3.24 billion gamers worldwide with the number rising more and more each year. We strategically built our blockchain infrastructure to provide seamless access to our platform and remove any barriers that gamers struggle with on different networks. Our partnership with Simplex proves our commitment to providing a flawless user experience and will aid in making UOS available to all gamers.”

Nicolas Gilot, Co-CEO of Ultra

As UOS is a core component of Ultra’s NFT Marketplace, we ensured that the process was as simple as possible so that any user, whether they are familiar with cryptocurrencies or not, can participate. Unlocking easy UOS purchasing on the platform also allows creators to automatically receive their revenue share for each second hand transaction. This feature will attract creators of all kinds to sell their NFTs on our marketplace and ensure timely and accurate pay-outs for each consequent sale.

Facilitating the purchasing of UOS directly from within the Ultra platform is a very important enabler moving forward as we release the various apps within the ecosystem.
