Happy U Year!

We did a good job. We started the digital transformation of our planet, creating the common digital infrastructure for ubots(software robots), smart contracts and digital assets.

Business Development:

4 from 6 major continents were opened and partnerships were established in Asia(Malaysia, Kazakhstan, Russia, China), MiddleEast(Bahrain), Africa(Tunis), South America(Mexico) and Europe(Liechtenstein, Finland).

192 flights taken, 32 countries were visited — Lithuania, Poland, Germany, Netherlands, Italy, Monaco, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, France, Latvia, Spain, Estonia, Finland, Denmark, Russia, Kazakhstan, Thailand, Turkey, Malta, Tunis, Kenya, Mexico, Qatar, UAE, Bahrain, Singapore, Hong Kong, China, Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines and Japan.

We talked with governments and ministries, governors and mayors, central banks and commercial banks, large enterprises and system integrators across the globe.

We were able to sign several governments, dozen ministries and companies to take a leap of faith into digital transformation era. It is a best achievement we could even dream back in 2017.

We started from tokenizing BTC and ETH in May, created hyper-tokens uBTC and uETH, then created Smart.Money engine, which allowed us to release digital gold(uGold) and digital Franc(uCHF) in December. The tokenizing race has just started and much more digital assets will be tokenized in 2019 by Universa.

31 Keynote Presentations were delivered at Conferences from Monaco and Mexico via Tunis and Russia to Bahrain and China. Almost 3 times per month. From Arab Banking Summit in Paris and WEF in Davos, to 1st National Blockchain Workshop in Ankara,Turkey and First China FixExpo in Xiamen, China.

We were interviewed many times by national, international magazines and TV channels and even host our own Chain Reaction TV show at RBC channel.

We resolved more than 10 000 support tickets, answered about 40 000 emails and trying to keep you informed in our telegram chats and on Facebook as 24х7 service. Community and Universa organized 1st Community Meetup in Amsterdam, where our strategy and plans were announced. We had awesome party, beer and wine. Have to repeat ;)

Universa MainNet for the Earth // Public Blockchain

We launched Universa Mainnet on 12th April in memory of Yury Gagarin. Since that time, Universa Mainnet is the fastest public blockchain available for your smart contracts, digital assets and ubots. 20,000 transactions per second, $0.01 per tx. Basic RTFM is here — https://kb.universa.io/universa:_first_steps/44

  • uBots Distributed self-executing smart contracts.Full-functional JavaScript client in smart contracts: safe, signed smart-contract applications, already supported by uniclient. Ubots network uses this technology. Also, it is possible to write convenient scripts to create complex contracts and revisions in JavaScript.
  • SLOT1 feature: keep your contracts safe by storing in the decentralized network.
  • FOLLOW contract: subscribe and get informed when your contracts are changing their state.
  • Uni.Con Extended and heavily optimized linked-contract referencing system allow to create very complex dependencies between contracts affecting permissions and roles. And all this works even faster than simple contracts last year.
  • Uni.Chat New fast and simple, fully featured rich chat/communications engine, with two synchronous interfaces: HTTP REST API with SSE and WebSocket-based with JavaScript API. http://demo-chat.universa.io
  • Uni.Node v4 is coming: same protocols and interfaces, complete redesign: C++ and V8 JavaScript engine for best performance. Environment friendly: Oracle free!

Now we have two options for you to play with Universa Blockchain, old good http://access.universa.io and the brand new http://beta.universa.io where you can create mintable tokens or any digital assets, transfer hyperTokens uBTC and uETH with a speed and cost of Universa(20k TPS/$0.01 per tx), exchange your UTN for UTNP and back if needed.


We spend a lot of efforts to make our smart contracts real smart, to get to the level of self-executing software robots or uBots. So, right now you can play with notary, escrow templates, batch of linked smart contracts, add executable javascript into your uBot and use short addresses instead of public keys(strongly recommended).

We have created a lot of libraries to get your job easier, from MiniCrypto library for Android developers and UMI(Universal Method Invocation) to Ruby Gem and JavaScript API. Please check the following chapter of our KnowledgeBase:
