Utopia just launched a beta version of it’s network. So I decided to test it out and i would say that i am impressed . I would advice you to give it a try if you are interested in Decentralized Technology.
First you will have to sign-up through Utopia Website, download Utopia software for Windows, Linux or Mac (around 175 M, install it, activate and run it.
Utopia application has a simple and an eye catchy user interface. The first time it launches it will open the official channel main chat where you can chat in channels or send private messages to Utopia users.
You also can use Utopia to send decentralized emails through Utopia uMail (Currently it only supports sending emails to Utopia users)
As for the wallet, as mentioned you can earn Crypton coin through RAM mining. I left Utopia application running for 30 minutes and i earned some Cryptons. Yay!
When you request payment you will need to reveal your Public Key. yet, in Utopia you can recieve payment using an option called Crypto Card, but there is a small fees for it paid using Crypton.
You can allocate some RAM for mining, the more RAM the more mining threads the more rewards
If you have ideas, you can submit it through Utopia Web where community can vote. Points are earned through voting as well.
What makes Utopia so amazing?
Making Groups, Adding users, Chatting and Emailing, Sending Mails and Mining Cryptons might be the highlights but Utopia claims to be an ecosystem therefore they had to incorporate many more features so that users of Utopia ecosystem do not feel the need to go out of the system. List of other useful features within the Utopia Application are listed
Packet Forwarding : uNS Manager lists option of ‘Packet Forwarding’ which is an internal system allowing any utopian user to host a website which can be accessed by the Idyll browser, the naming system of the website is explained above, if you register hackology uNS you can make a website and it will open when you visit http://hackology/ and that is it. This option allows to tunnel any kind of data between users in ecosystem, making possible to host different types of resources including websites inside Utopia Network. At the time of writing few fellow Utopia users made Utopia sites which can be accessed at http://trade/ and at http://crystalforest
File Manager : All files which are sent or received in Utopia can be accessed from the builtin file manager which also includes an image viewer. As of now the file transfers are limited to 100MB.
Voice Notes : Utopia also supports sending and receiving of Voice messages which you can send to those who are added with you.
Dark Theme : The program comes in standard theme but how can they miss out a Dark Theme for the privacy savvy ? Users can opt for dark theme by going to Tools > Settings > Interface and selecting the ‘Dark Space‘ theme
Utopia API : Utopia comes with a comprehensive API for users to incorporate in their own projects. For instance, using API you can accept payments denominated in Crypton at your website, automatically manage your channels, send instant messages and much more. To get started once you enable the API you can also access the API documentation.
Network Fee Structure : Utopia provides us with an option to view all the network enforced fee and they are updated live on the network as the fee structure changes, thus one can stay updated with the current fee structure. You can access the Network Fee from uWallet > Treasury Data > Network Fee
Game : Utopia also supports in-app games which can be played in multiplayer, as of writing there is a working Chess game.
