mission

Our mission is to promote decentralization, improve and spread the adoption of the blockchain technology by active development and promotion. To achieve this, we have drawn an extensive roadmap, underlining the upcoming improvement and changes that are to be brought to the UFO core.

UFO 2018 roadmap

The UFO network, after being updated to the latest available codebase, will add a Lightning Network allowing rapid transactions, bi-directional payment channels, atomic swaps between other cryptocurrencies as well as many other features. Post SegWit enablement, a web hosted wallet will be available with Multisig and SegWit address support and Raw Transaction tools. An overview of the development plan can be found under the roadmap section and more detailed information for current and past releases can be found in the news section.
