Getting Started

1. What can I do using Utopia?

With Utopia you can send instant text and voice messages, transfer files, create group chats and channels, news feeds, and conduct a private discussion. A channel can be geotagged using integrated uMaps which simplifies the Utopia channel search and adds an additional security layer. As a result there is no need to use public map services which are known to collect your data to feed Big Data massives.

uMail is a decentralized alternative to the classic e-mail. No servers are used for mail transmission or storage. Your uMail account, which is created in a minute, enables unlimited messaging and attachment storage. The Utopia ecosystem encryption guarantees the security of mail transmission and storage. Your uMail, as an internal part of Utopia, cannot be blocked or seized.

All financial functionality can be found in Utopia's built-in uWallet: make and accept instant payments denominated in Utopia's mineable cryptocurrency Crypton, accept payments on your website, pay by Crypto Cards without revealing your identity, or bill fellow Utopia users for your services.

Other features include the API and console client for fast and easy integration.

The Utopia network includes a safe alternative to the traditional Domain Name System (DNS) called the Utopia Name System (uNS). This is a decentralized registry of names that are impossible to expropriate, freeze or corrupt by any 3rd-party. Once registered it is your property in perpetuity.

uNS, combined with the Packet Forwarding functional, allow Utopia to tunnel any kind of data between users within the ecosystem, making it possible to host different types of resources, including websites, inside the Utopia network. Utopia's built-in Idyll Browser allows you to view websites within the Utopia peer-to-peer network. Idyll is a great alternative to TOR browser.

There are many other amazing features you will enjoy, like voice encryption, tons of stickers and smileys, multiplayer games, and collaboration and organizational tools.

Take advantage of all of the above features, while you stay anonymous, and your data remains secure.

Crypton Mining

3. What is Crypton mining?

Cryptocurrency mining is a process by which new coins are introduced into the existing circulating supply. Utopia rewards users that support the ecosystem through mining by emission of new Cryptons. When you run Utopia mining bot you will receive your share of the collective mining reward. The more time your Utopia bots spend online, the more reward you will earn.

The purpose of the Utopia Mining Bots is to promote the stability of the ecosystem by increasing the number of routing connections and providing additional storage.

4. Requirements for mining Cryptons (CRP)

  • 64 CRP each bot
  • 64-bit operating system
  • More than 4 GB of RAM
  • 4 CPU cores or more
  • Public IP address (Static IP) and high-speed Internet connection

6. Mining in Home PC possible?

Technically it is possible, yes. But most home users find great difficulty because of the Public IP (Static IP) requirement. The Pubic IP is the trickiest requirement for most home users because many ISPs don't actually give those out to customers. But because it's necessary for network health and increased routing, no mining will take place without it. You can either continue using and exploring Utopia for free from home using this client, or if you really want to earn CRP (mine) then find a suitable VPS to host a bot.

Highly recommended to use a VPS for mining.

Please review for a list of working VPS providers. None are free, though.

7. Mining Data

If total mining threads are below 1000 then reward per thread will be 0.048 CRP and if total mining threads are above 1000 then reward will decrease marginally to share 48 CRP equally among all threads.

Maximum reward per thread: 0.048 CRP (When threads are 1000 or below)

Maximum total reward generated per block: 48 CRP

Block Time: 15 minutes

Maximum CRP can be mined per year: 1.68 million CRP

8. When will the mining bot start generating rewards?

Once the requirements are met and a bot has begun working, it will take 24 hours for enough incoming links to be formed (approximately 5) for CRP rewards to begin generating.

The longer your bot is online, the better the chance that the mining will generate rewards.

9. Utopia Alternative Miner (UAM)

Mining with Utopia Client is not possible anymore. Classic Bot for Windows, MacOS and Linux also discontinued. Team has developed a new alternative mining client (Utopia Alternative Miner) based on a completely new code base written from scratch with high performance and low resource consumption in mind. Download and try from below link (Linux Only).

An example of how to launch a bot from the command prompt:


10. Is there a limit on the number of bots i can run?

You can launch unlimited number of bots, but with the condition that each bot works on a separate host and have 64 CRP each bot in your uWallet. (e.g: If you want to run 10 bots, you must have 640 CRP in your uWallet)

11. Delegate CRP

Crypton (CRP)

15. About Crypton (CRP)

Crypton is a truly breakthrough cryptocurrency that guarantees complete privacy protection and is fully protected from any regulatory-related risks unlike any other cryptocurrency launched by any world-famous or even just public company. There is no government authority of any country that can influence on Crypton's market rate or it's fate as well as there is no way to take control on Crypton or entire Utopia ecosystem and it's team which stays and will always stay anonymous.

Multi-faceted and highly-professional approach to liquidity support and stable market rate of Crypton is well-organized with 3 main levers:
  • Adjustable amount of issued Cryptons per 15 minute block for regulating emission
  • Adjustable Proof-of-Stake Rate for storing Cryptons that can be positive or even negative if it's necessary for market rate stability
  • Adjustable fees settings for all paid services available within Utopia ecosystem
All of three adjustable settings listed above are currently controlled by Utopia development team but after implementation of decentralized referendum, self-governance and voting systems the full control of adjustable settings will be transferred to society. Crypton's ideology and main priority is strived to complete anonymity and privacy protection to deliver the highest level of freedom, security and stability to its users.

29. Why Utopia is not open source?

The 1984 Group, which is the anonymous development team behind Utopia, may disclose certain parts of code, specifically related to communication and encryption. However, the decentralized protocol will not be released. Utopia is very knowledge-intensive software. A lot of time, effort and resources went into this product, and the 1984 Group do not want to share all of know-how as it will result in forks which in turn may result in instability of Utopia main network. Fork will lead to the division of the community, while The 1984 Group's intention is the unification of the community of like-minded individuals. The bottom line here is that a lot of software is closed source, and this does not hurt them a bit. In addition, the 1984 Group will audit Utopia code.
