Top Up UOS easily with Credit Cards Through Ultra’s Integration of Simplex
The PC market soared in 2020, and is expected to continue its upward trajectory with an impressive 8% growth in 2021 according to Canalys. With 496.8 million PC units expected to ship this year alone and an estimated 2.7 billion gamers around the world, blockchain technologies aren’t yet accessible to this huge audience. This is why we’re excited to announce a feature that will make UOS as accessible as possible for every gamer.
In Ultra’s upcoming client update, users will discover some new wallet features.
One that will be particularly interesting for our community is the integration of a direct top up mechanism that will allow anyone to buy UOS with a credit card, directly within the Ultra wallet. Combine that with the ease of creating an Ultra account, we believe that cryptocurrencies have never been this accessible for gamers up until now.
How it Works
In a few clicks, Ultra users will be able to purchase UOS at market price directly by using their credit card. Everything else happens behind the scenes: The requested transactions on exchanges where we’re listed will be executed by Simplex and sent back in UOS to an Ultra user’s account.
To acquire UOS using this method is far more convenient than using a crypto exchange or other gateways. It eliminates common obstacles that many users face when they seek to interact with cryptocurrencies. By integrating Simplex into its ecosystem, Ultra adds another tool geared toward breaking the entry barrier in the blockchain space, directly from the account creation process to the acquisition of, and interaction with, UOS.
After an Ultra user’s wallet has been topped up, gamers can spend their UOS to acquire games and items, while also using it in our ecosystem in various other ways. For example, gamers can use UOS to participate in tournaments, donate to their favorite streamers, buy a tokenized item for their favorite game, and much more.
