Development Updates

Redeem code is ready for use!

As mentioned in the previous Ultra Notes, redeem codes are now available on the Uniq Marketplace. These will allow users to redeem Uniqs directly within the Ultra platform and can be obtained through competitions, campaigns, and perks from owned Uniqs.

A few weeks ago, we used the redeem code feature for the first time and sent codes to some Uniq holders. Select Uniq holders successfully received the initial batch of codes and were able to redeem their free Infinity Pet. We received valuable feedback about users’ experience using the feature and plan to continue using the redeem code functionality for further utility and marketing activities!

Ultra Wallet Chrome Extension progress!

The Ultra Wallet Chrome Extension development is progressing steadily. We’re currently working on adding two key features. The first functionality lets users disconnect all connected sites using the wallet app. Secondly, we’re linking the extension to Simplex, a crypto transactions processing system, to buy UOS using the extension.

Additionally, we are in the process of preparing for a code audit for the wallet extension. We’ll share more details in another update.

Uniq pages supporting MP4!

We’re developing a feature to allow Uniq pages to support MP4 files. We’ll share more details about this feature soon. If you still haven’t tried the Uniq Marketplace, download the client and start browsing!
