Uniq Marketplace launch!
The Uniq Marketplace, Ultra’s digital asset marketplace, officially launched on the 29th of August. In just over a week of opening up the app to the general public, thousands of users have logged in to explore, buy, and sell a range of utility-driven Uniqs. Users can buy Uniqs using $UOS or a credit card in just a few clicks. Download the Ultra platform and start exploring the Ultraverse now!
The first collections sold out!
We dropped several exclusive Uniq collections that have been selling very fast (in a matter of seconds in some cases). These are the collections dropped so far:
- The Ultra’s Power Collection: A collection of 13 utility-driven Uniqs dedicated to the futurists and innovators who see the true impact of the Ultra ecosystem.
- The first 2 batches of Galaxy DroidZ: An exclusive collection of 767 DroidZ spread across 8 different classes; only available to buy and sell on the Uniq Marketplace.
- The Legends of Elysium Uniq collection: A collection of special Uniqs from our partners at Legends of Elysium with special perks.
- The first Elemental Souls: A collection of 7 distinct Uniqs inspired by nature that grant the holder many perks and rewards (5 have been dropped already).

Partnership with Polkastarter Gaming!
We announced our exciting partnership with Polkastarter, an industry-leading fundraising company. This partnership will leverage Ultra’s ecosystem and Polkastarter Gaming’s platform to offer innovative resources to gaming projects. With this partnership, we aim to welcome more exciting games and apps to Ultra. Ultra and Polkastarter agreed to join efforts in co-marketing and game distribution. Ultra will grant access to its SDK, tools, and resources, whilst Polkastarter will source new relevant games and apps for Ultra and list our unannounced carbon-neutral token initiative on the Polkastarter DEX.
New title coming to Ultra Games: Koakuma!
Koakuma is an MMO-ARPG packed with immersive combat mechanics within a graphics-intensive metaverse. Their team will leverage Ultra’s ecosystem and Ultra’s Uniq standard to offer an innovative experience for players and grow their fanbase. Koakuma has been supported by relevant companies in the space, including our partner Polkastarter. Find out more about this partnership.
Ultra at Gamescom 2022!
Nicolas Gilot, Co-CEO of Ultra, and Oubial Lhoussain, Head Business Development Manager for Gaming, attended Gamescom in Cologne this month. Gamescom is one of the main events in gaming, where more than 250,000 visitors participated this year, amassing over 130,000,000 views of the show’s program. They had a very intensive schedule and secured several meetings with potential partners. We’ll be sharing some news about these when the time comes!
Free-to-play on Ultra Games!
We’re working to facilitate free-to-play titles on Ultra Games, enabling publishers and game developers to publish free games under this category. Ultra Games is the game store on the Ultra ecosystem which will be launched soon.
External wallet on testnet!
The team has been working on an Ultra wallet extension, so users are able to sign their transactions on external browser-based sites. The wallet extension will be on testnet for internal testing and then become available to the public shortly after. We’ll provide more updates on this soon.
Working on Uniq Marketplace feedback!
When we launched the Uniq Marketplace, we received valuable feedback which our support team has been addressing and passing on to the wider Ultra teams. We are taking the feedback onboard and prioritizing major improvements to the app. If you have any feedback to share, please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
