A look at the first month of the Uniq Marketplace!

After only one month since the Uniq Marketplace launch, the app has already positioned itself as one of the top 20 marketplaces worldwide in trading volume.

In the first 30 days, six exclusive collections have dropped and sold out in less than 30 minutes:

  • 613 Ultra’s Power Uniqs: a curated collection of virtual VIP Uniqs for early adopters
  • 49 Ultra OG Collection Uniqs: created by an avid Ultra community member and initially launched in November 2021 as a token of appreciation for the Ultra community
  • 359 Galaxy DroidZ: an exclusive collection of Uniqs created by two of Ultra’s longest-serving community members. More dropping in the following weeks
  • 700 Elemental Souls: a collection of 7 different Uniqs inspired by nature. 63 Collective Souls have been given to selected holders who own all 7 Elemental Souls
  • 30 Legends of Elysium Uniqs: an exclusive Uniq collection from our gaming partners, Legends of Elysium
  • 325 Elarium KeyCards: a collection by one of our gaming partners, the play-and-earn first-person shooter Elarium

Users have traded more than $1.2M worth of Uniqs in both the first-hand and secondary markets and have bought an average of 3.57 Uniqs on the launchpad! Keep an eye out for new collections dropping soon.

Ultra NFT PFP hackathon!

With the recent release of the Uniq Marketplace, Ultra is opening up the possibilities to more NFT creators in our first NFT hackathon. To submit an entry, participants must create a set of no less than 5 (with a limit of 10,000) unique profile picture (PFP) designs.

Winners and some participants will be awarded UOS tokens to commend them for their creations and their collection distributed on the Uniq Marketplace. There is $30k in UOS up for grabs.

The deadline to send submissions is November 7th, 2022.

Partnership with Wasder!

We recently announced our partnership with Wasder, a gamified social media platform where players can express themselves, connect with others, explore the world of games, and earn rewards. Through this partnership, we plan to make web2 and web3 gaming more accessible and provide a more seamless user experience for game developers and players. Read more about the partnership.

Elarium drop!

Elarium launched a collection of Uniqs on the Uniq Marketplace called the Elarium KeyCards, which consists of 6 Uniqs that each holds varying utility. Elarium is a play-and-earn FPS title that will be released exclusively on Ultra Games. All 325 Uniqs sold out in a few minutes on the launchpad, each with varying supply and price. Learn more about the collection and explore a variety of Uniqs on the Uniq Marketplace!

Wider adoption of Ultra’s networks!

We published this article covering some of the features our team is working on aiming for mass adoption of the Ultra networks, which include:

  • A comprehensive set of documentation for developers looking to create smart contracts on Ultra’s networks
  • Developer workflows and the Ultra Authenticator are built into the Ultra Client to ensure a secure flow through a trusted application
  • Developers can use an Ultra Chrome extension to develop flows and verify that they can authenticate and sign transactions on Ultra’s networks
  • A strong foundation for developers building up the Ultra ecosystem, one app at a time

Uniqs in the metaverse!

We shared the first Uniqs exhibition in the metaverse on the third floor of AMD’s Voxels space. It currently displays several Uniqs that have launched on the Uniq Marketplace and the Galaxy DroidZ trailer. Check it out!

Development Updates

New Ultra Mainnet Discord integration!

We developed a new proof of concept to link Discord and Ultra accounts using a Discord bot. Through this integration, users can link their in-app identity to their permanent identity on Ultra’s networks, proving that digital identities can be decentralized and globally accessible. Users can also send small sums of UOS tokens to other users. For a tutorial on how to enable this feature, click here.

A list of available commands using the bot!

More external wallet development progress!

To enable external developers to build quickly and efficiently, we are adding functionality to our Ultra Chrome Extension which will allow them to connect to a multitude of test networks, including those that are required for local development. This will allow developers to test both their smart contracts and the apps which leverage them before pushing them to a public Testnet or to our Mainnet.

Next major release is coming soon!

Our next major release, 2.0.0, is coming soon. We plan to deploy it this month as an improved version of the client. This update will include a Digital Rights Management (DRM) system that ensures the protection of copyrighted titles, a new free-to-play workflow, and a redeem code functionality for Uniqs. It will also include some new administration features for games and a brand-new product page. More details will be released shortly.

Tournament platform is advancing!

Ultra’s tournament platform’s development is advancing at a steady pace and its progress is looking very promising. The platform intends to transform how gamers interact with tournaments. We’ll be sharing more information about the app soon.
