Today, we are proud to announce that Ultra, the cryptocurrency native to the Ultranet marketplace, has been listed and can be traded on LAToken, a top ten crypto exchange. This marks a big step for the Ultranet marketplace, the only marketplace where all orders are end-to-end encrypted and listings can’t be taken down or censored. With Ultra being listed on LAToken, merchants and users will be able to exchange Ultra for Bitcoin, Tether, Ethereum, and many other cryptocurrencies (and vice versa). Moreover, by increasing access to Ultra, we expect both buyers and sellers will become more comfortable using the Ultranet marketplace in the same way Bitcoin becoming trade-able on Mt. Gox promoted it from being just a pet project to being a widely-used internet currency.
In addition to trading Ultra on LAToken, users can also purchase Ultra with Bitcoin in minutes using the Ultranet app’s built-in decentralized exchange. Ultra is also listed and tradable on the p2pb2b.io exchange.
Over a year ago, we had a vision for a truly decentralized marketplace. A marketplace that is 100% open-source to challenge the currently-unchecked power of the platform oligarchy that rules over us (Amazon, Alibaba, and the other tech giants). Every day the community supporting the Ultranet gets a little stronger. And now, having gained the trust of LAToken, a top ten exchange with millions of users, we are closer than ever to creating a world where what we do online is in our hands rather than the hands of a privileged few.
