Algorithm: Changed algorithm to Ubqhash due to possibility of Ethash attacks (November, 2018).

Marketplace Redundancy: Listed on multiple major exchanges, including Bittrex.


Communication: Spoke with a developer, Kris Hansen, via LinkedIn (March, 2019). I have found that multiple developers for the Ubiq project have other developments (or jobs) they are currently working on. However, projects still do get completed and typically on time.

Community: There is a large-sized development community, who release a continuous flow of new and sometimes innovative products.

Methodology: Airdrops and marketing methods are being utilized. A proprietary Google Chrome extension was just released to help speed up adoption and their marketing efforts are a sufficient step in adoption (April, 2019).

Graphical User Interface

Additional Note #1: Ubiq’s mining reward per-block lowers substantially in 2024.

Additional Note #2: Ubiq will be much more appealing if it transitions to a Proof-of-Stake scheme due to a reduction in coin output.

Additional Note #3: Ubiq needs to spur adoption by reaching out to institutions and like-minded organizations. Much of their progress to date was based on Cryptopia, whom should be out of business by now.
