EOS Nation Joins Ultra as Block Producer

Today, the EOS Nation team is excited to announce that we are joining Ultra as a new block producer, alongside Ubisoft, Bitfinex, EOS Rio, and EOS Seoul! We will join the launch of the Ultra public Testnet, which should take place in the next couple weeks.

We are excited to welcome EOS Nation as a block producer of Ultra’s blockchain, their experience speaks for itself with 99.9% round availability and their ongoing contribution to the EOSIO ecosystem. EOS Nation will offer prime access to all the EOSIO developers, evangelizing the technology Ultra built for the past years, bringing the first mass market blockchain solution to the games industry. – Nicolas Gilot, Ultra Co-CEO

Our responsibilities, providing the highest quality infrastructure, validating transactions and securing the network, will consist of providing feedback to the Ultra blockchain team on the launch of the testnet, and the switch to mainnet. Together, Ultra and the block producers will work to make the Ultra blockchain launch and the token swap as smooth as possible.

EOS Nation is excited to join Ultra in their quest to transform the video game publishing industry. Our world class infrastructure is well suited for the needs of the Ultra network and we’re honored to contribute our EOSIO expertise alongside other industry leaders as we all work together to deliver more value to gamers and game developers all around the world. We have no doubts that the future of gaming will play out on the blockchain and we believe that Ultra is well positioned to be a leader in this new industry. – Yves La Rose

Our technical team is already working with Ultra and we can’t wait to be producing in the Ultra distributed network!
