As our Wave 1 is coming soon to its conclusion, we’re taking the opportunity to give you an update on the progress we made and the various community activities that are ongoing.

- New UI for Geofencing management in a Token Factory.
- Refund management interface to better handle refund requests.
Gate and Bithumb Listings
On February 22, UOS was listed on Bithumb, a Korean leading exchange. It is an important listing for Ultra:»Korea is a key country for eSport and we already have a fledgling community in the region!
We are excited to increase our presence in Korea and hope to work further with crypto and gaming Korean companies in the near future.
On March 15, we were pleased to learn that UOS was listed on Gate.io, a popular exchange which is highly trusted in the crypto space. We are currently working to add more exchanges in the coming future, as we want to increase UOS volume for the release of Ultra.
In the heat of the NFT hype, Ultra didn’t go unnoticed. Cointelegraph published an article that underlines UOS recent growth as well as Ultra’s leading innovation in the crypto-gaming sector. You can read the article below.
Crypto: Against all Odds
As a surprise to our Wave 1 users, we partnered with Pictagor to publish “Crypto: Against all Odds” on the Ultra platform the same day as its Steam/GoG release. It was our first game launch and a perfect occasion to tighten our relationship with Plugin Digital by helping to promote a game based on the crypto universe.
Pictagor was impressed by our community’s amazing response and are now considering adding UOS as a component of the game. Kudos to them and the Ultra’s community for their impressive radness and we hope that things will go even further when we’ll make our SDK available for NFT creation, gamification, cross-platform publishing, and so on.
Our Theta’s streamers enjoyed the game too! LaDime gave “Crypto: Against all Odds” a long and meticulous try on Tuesday, March 9 to celebrate the release. We can’t wait for the Wave 2’s surprises!
In this community update, we really want to thank our community members for their incredible support. Not only Ultra community’s enthusiastic involvement stimulates the interest and increases the awareness about the project among gamers and crypto users, but having a strong and organized community also inevitably leads to more support from game devs, exchanges, media, etc.
Ultra community’s commitment has manifested itself in a multitude of creative ways some of which are showcased here. Note that we are, as always, open for new ideas and initiatives! If you want to contribute, feel free to send a DM to our Community Managers Emmanuel or Anthony on Telegram.
Surf The Wave 2
During 3 weeks in February, we organized an event in partnership with Theta to offer exclusive Wave 2 accesses during live streams hosted by our WaffleUncle, Kmack710, and Saifou and his crew from La Cabane (French people!).
During this fun celebration you could see the Wave 1 version of our platform live and win one of the many prizes including 6000 UOS, 4500 TFUEL and 9 Wave 2 accesses.
Our Surf The Wave 2 event concluded with a French AMA involving our Co-CEOs David & Nicolas. If you missed it, here is the recording.
Because our community is also very active on Twitter, we collaborated with @Ultra_Community to offer a few Wave 2 accesses through various contests of their choice. The first contest gave 3 accesses to those who did the best Ultra logo IRL. Entries are amazing, check them out!
The second contest, still ongoing (registrations are closed though), is a price prediction game with another 3 accesses to win!
Very interesting and detailed articles were published during the last weeks too. One that caught a lot of eyes is the price prediction / investment thesis written by @Ultra_Community (below). The article explores 3 possible growth scenarios based on various expected metrics such as game purchases, mining, advertising, game reselling, …
A French website also made a detailed article about Ultra which reminds the one of Cryptoast. Our French community is definitively very active!
MDX is also an early supporter of Ultra, and that’s why we are always pleased to come back to him when we want to talk about Ultra in a deep way! Below you’ll find a full presentation of Ultra with Nicolas and David answering very interesting questions from MDX and his community, make sure to check it out:
We really want to thank you all for your support, with your content creation, support on telegram and twitter, etc. We can clearly see why Ultra as a community centric platform has a real chance against Steam!
We are still pushing Ultra to all kinds of future actors to build our ecosystem of games and applications, and all feedback we get is awesome, people are truly impressed by Ultra! The hype around NFTs helps us, as even outsiders realize now the potential of this technology but how difficult/impossible would it be for them to onboard their community on Ethereum or others solutions. Giving us even more confidence about the product and technologies we are building!
