Superior Blockchain Technology
Relying on a single algorithm (SHA256d) has led to an arms race in mining hardware, resulting in an eco-system where
only those willing to invest significant capital can mine Bitcoin on a profitable basis
– and only then if a very cheap source of power can be utilized.
This has now caused significant centralization of mining resources – effectively concentrating the direction and power of the Bitcoin network within a few large players.
At its core, Unitus is based on Bitcoin. This provides the proven and tested blockchain technology that is now used by the leading crypto currencies.
By enhancing the Bitcoin codebase and adding support for multiple mining algorithms, the balance of power is now restored.
Cryptocurrency done right – fast, secure, decentralised and accessible to everyone.
Unitus uses 5 independent algorithms to ensure the blockchain remains secure and can be mined by anyone, regardless of the hardware they have available to them.
Merge mining allows a miner to mine a parent coin, whilst at the same time contribute network hashrate to Unitus – and earn from both of the coins at the same time.
No Premine, ICO or Developer Tax. Just pure miner reward. Gradual decline in block rewards, more resembling the natural decline of a valuable resource.
A community driven coin
Unitus is a coin driven by volunteers. There is no company backing it and no-one is paid for any work done. No Premine, ICO or Developer Tax. Just pure miner reward. Gradual decline in block rewards, more resembling the natural decline of a valuable resource.
Unitus uses 5 independent algorithms to ensure the blockchain remains secure and mineable by any type of hardware.
Winner of the 2013 Password Hashing Competition, a memory and thread intensive algorithm resilient to GPU and ASIC.
A finalist in the NIST hash function competition, was a GPU algorithm now dominated by ASIC miners.
A chained algorithm with the unique use of Lyra2 password hashing algorithm. Developed for use within Vertcoin in an attempt to fight off ASICs.
The X11 hashing algorithm was invented for use within Dash. Currently, it can only be profitably mined with the new generation of ASICs.
The evolution of the Scrypt hashing algorithm designed to be hostile to even GPU mining, due to its complexity and built-in defences.

The Unitus Wallet
Current Wallet is version 0.14.2.2, released 28th April 2018
Merge mining allows a miner to mine a parent coin, whilst at the same time
contribute network hashrate to Unitus – and earn both the parent coin’s mining
rewards and Unitus at the same time, with no additional effort, cost or overhead
on the miner’s behalf.
This results in Unitus having zero environmental impact (as a result of not requiring any additional power being used to mine), whilst providing additional profit for the miner.
