Make the most of your games
No more are the days where you buy a game, play them, and leave them collecting figurative dust in your games library once you’re done with them. With Ultra, you’ll be able to trade and sell your games on the NFT marketplace, providing you with the opportunity to finally have more freedom when it comes to owning your digital items.
This second-hand market is designed to fully support the developers involved as Ultra provides them with complete control on how and when their games are distributed on the marketplace. Our GDC has a variety of customisable options for developers, including but not limited to choosing the minimum resale price, the period at which it can be sold in, and geographically where it can be resold.
On Ultra, we reward players for sharing their love for games with their friends. Our 2-step referral program provides players with rewards for each time they bring someone new to the platform, giving you all the chance to earn through your experience with us. Your rewards will be available in your Ultra Wallet where you’ll have the chance to spend on anything within the platform. Whether you want to try out the latest titles to drop on Ultra Games or purchase one of the NFTs on our marketplace, you’ll be spoilt for choice.
Streamers and content creators, we got you too! Our simple promoter program rewards you for sharing gameplay and speaking about your favourite titles on Ultra. Simply share and speak about your favourite games on Ultra and get rewarded for supporting the title when someone purchases the game through your special link.
