Brave New World
Confidentiality is the modern web’s essential issue. Targeted advertising and automated geolocation tracking are great business tools, but real users are truly concerned about hidden analysis of, and possible unauthorized access to, their personal data. The thing is, global data collection practices have practically become the new norm, which we have gradually adapted to. Corporate giants provide services and solutions free of charge, making indefinite profits by impacting and even manipulating user behavior for personal business goals.
Can This Be Avoided?
This is our ultimate goal at Utopia – to provide an innovative ecosystem that transforms data exchange as you know it, introducing a new, absolutely secure online environment that promotes full freedom of thought, speech, and belief. Let us share our own take on the unique project that has been developed through the years.
Concept of Utopia Ecosystem
The global crypto community strives for decentralization, streamlined functionality, and absolute privacy. Every other human being strives for freedom. Inspired by these natural ambitions and George Orwell-esque dystopian vibes, in 2013, the 1984 Group was gathered to kick off the development of a reinforced digital environment – a data exchange ecosystem that is completely out of Big Brother’s reach.
Utopia’s operating philosophy is built on such essential values as privacy, decentralization, security, and performance. Utopia is about real-deal confidentiality, not the vague concept they promise to grant you from the big screen – to create a personal account, you don’t need to specify either a phone number or email address.
More than that, no live employees or server data centers are required for managing or maintaining the platform, while developers cannot possibly acquire the ability to tweak the underlying algorithms in any way. As opposed to many other similar projects, the full absence of such system vulnerabilities allows Utopia to offer users the most secure foundation for an ecosystem of this comprehensive nature.
As a thoroughly underlying concept of the cryptoverse, decentralization in Utopia gains a new uncompromising yet accessible meaning. Utopia’s cryptographic data exchange mechanisms grant security that expands user freedom instead of restricting it.
The functionality of Utopia is not just a vast set of high-quality, efficient features, but rather a unique case of an ecosystem that has everything an online user may need to replace all the usual communication methods, including social media.
Could This Really Work?
Utopia’s performance is near to impossible to undermine – it simply cannot be hindered, shut down, or blocked.
And all of that is thanks to the underlying support by interconnected network users. Utopia users form an independent interconnected structure where all users and all connections between users are kept anonymous. To exchange data, the data stream is sent via a chain of other random users to reach the receiving end in the fastest and most secure way possible. The data transfer mechanism automatically identifies optimal data passage windows and shoots data through them to other nodes. With this independent foundation, the ecosystem cannot be felled even by a global Internet shutdown, if one ever occurs.
Can transferring my messages and other data via such “chains” of interconnected users really be secure? – one may ask.
Although surely you may have doubts, indeed, this is the safest way to route and exchange data streams. In the process, the data are re-encrypted and re-converted as many times as there are participants in the “chain”. This way, it becomes virtually impossible to track data routing and define sender/receiver identifiers. And there may be up to a few hundred “links” in one “chain”.
At the same time, data decryption keys belong only to a sender and a receiver who automatically exchanged communication setup keys upon adding each other to the contact list. Cryptography with the Ed25519 public key based on elliptical curves developed by Daniel J. Bernstein is used as the underlying mechanism for digital signature creation.
As for individual data assets, in Utopia, they are not stored or processed in any way. The ecosystem does not have central servers – all the user account data remains in the user’s local storage and goes through 256-bit AES encryption.
Utopia packs all the basic social features required for private communication and online payments.
The platform supports 29 languages, including Russian, Chinese and even Arabic. Once you install the application, you will need to come up with a reliable password that will be used for individual data access on the platform. You may also optionally specify a unique login nickname to identify yourself among other platform users (or remain completely anonymous if you like).
Personal network address generation takes about a minute, after which you become a fully-registered member of Utopia with all of these game-changing platform fruits and opportunities open to you.
Through the eight years of development, the creators managed to build an ingenious, secure alternative to existing data sharing solutions with a lightweight, friendly interface.
A convenient Utopia ecosystem tool for secure and immediate message and media exchange. It has everything for comfortable chatting, including sets of smiles and stickers, as well as group chats with an unlimited number of members.
On top of private and public chats, there are also community channels that users can create and customize, enabling their own privacy settings. The messenger is fast, well-protected from spam, and is integrated with a ton of other useful features.
Email has long since become an essential part of any web user’s life. Unfortunately, the standards that govern modern email security and performance haven’t changed much since their original introduction back in 1971. Today, we can hardly deem data exchanges that go through emails confidential.
Public email service operators have practically unlimited access to your exchange of digital letters. And the most popular services analyze the contents of emails in order to better target ads. Then there are also private email services, however, they are also vulnerable to the human element as well. Meanwhile, servers and software that store and process user mail are regularly attacked by hackers and accessed using password-generating algorithms.
Utopia offers a worthwhile alternative to traditional email – a system free from human vulnerability where the functionality doesn’t require extra software or servers to store data. This is, ultimately, a safer and “cleaner” option.
You keep your Utopia email address for good, there are no fees or charges, and the system looks and works just like a traditional email inbox with tools for exchanging messages, sharing files, filtering incoming/outcoming mails, and searching messages by their content.
Every living and working person today uses online payment services and digital e-wallets. Users of the Utopia ecosystem get Crypton – a unique crypto-wallet based on custom technology.
The main advantage of making payments via Utopia is a special set of tools that make transactions and other payment operations fast and reliable.
Users can send and receive transactions via the built-in digital wallet. And as opposed to other solutions in the niche, Utopia’s blockchain restricts all third parties from accessing any data concerning your transactions, including amounts and credentials. The wallet cannot be blocked and any descriptions including the balance are encrypted. Other crypto platforms allow only partially concealing payment operation details whereas Utopia guarantees full data concealment.
On top of making regular transactions, users can also create crypto cards, which is a decentralized version of traditional bank cards. Using crypto cards in Utopia, you can make payments via your crypto-wallet offline by simply sharing your card credentials with an online store or another Utopia user. Flexible configurations allow setting limits for separate operations and vendors while the unauthorized charge-off confirmation system doesn’t leave cybercriminals any openings.
And there are many more convenient tools for payment operations taking place both inside the ecosystem and externally.
User rewards for network support
Utopia is the ecosystem that runs based on a network made up of individual users. Every 15 minutes, all network members get a reward for helping exchange data packages by providing RAM and traffic for the ecosystem’s needs. Provided resources are used as a data exchange and user payments buffer.
All you need to do to start getting rewards is launch a special UAM application on any Linux server with at least 4 GB RAM and a quad-core CPU. These resources should be enough to help the network and its members generate data routes no matter where users are situated on the planet.
Currently, around 40,000 nodes have been launched. This can be compared in size with some of the biggest blockchain projects, but Utopia is much more energy-efficient as UAM does not require resource-intense GPU or CPU consumption to run. Utopia’s blockchain can be confidently deemed the most eco-friendly blockchain out there.
Application’s Operating System
Utopia has numerous additional features, such as multiplayer online games, a cartography section, a catalog of communities and channels. The choice can only be limited to the extent of user needs and desires.
There are 4 visual and 6 audio themes for user interface and personal platform environment customizing. Developers have done a great job of granting extensive Utopia personalization that is easy to master for both newcomers and advanced users.
On top of that, there is extended functionality of administrative needs and savvy users – you get a full-on Tor browser alternative where decentralized UNS replaces the classic DNS-based system as a safer option.
A convenient API interface for developers allows integrating Utopia features with other projects, for instance, using the payment functionality to enable sales in your own online store or application.
With such tech capabilities in place, Utopia almost fits the description of an operating system. You can see the years that went into the platform’s development with a naked eye. The project is not so well-known, however, because the development was closed and public beta testing started only in 2019.
Utopia is a one-of-a-kind solution that combines the advantages of a decentralized system with convenient communication. The ecosystem has all the communication tools a modern user may need with an extra layer of protection by cryptographic protocols and innovative data exchange methods that grant a whole range of messaging and data sharing safety features.
With the advent of Utopia, users are no longer forced to choose between convenience and safety. The platform has all the chances to become a standard tool for the protection of basic human rights and freedoms.
