Introducing Utrust - Digital Currency Deposits

MindArk is pleased to introduce Utrust as a new deposit method for Entropia Universe. Digital currencies through Utrust are now available to be used as a regular deposit method.

“Allowing our customers to use cryptocurrencies to deposit into their Entropia Universe accounts has been part of our long-term strategy. The Utrust system fits with our business model which facilitates fiat money transfers to avatar accounts.” – Henrik Nel, CEO.

With Utrust, Entropia Universe participants can now add funds to their avatar accounts using cryptocurrency. The unique real-cash economy of Entropia Universe allows participants to fund their avatars’ activities for entertainment or to build their own businesses inside the unique MMO game experience of Entropia Universe. The Entropia Universe currency (PED) is tied to the value of the real-world USD at a rate of 10 PED to 1 USD.

Utrust is available for transfers of 5 USD or more in digital currencies.

Notice

Like many of you, MindArk is saddened and angered by the unjustified and unlawful Russian invasion of Ukraine. 

The MindArk PE AB Board of Directors has therefore decided to indefinitely suspend all financial transactions to and from Russia. This includes disabling of new accounts from Russia, as well as deposits to and withdrawals from Entropia Universe by persons and/or entities located in Russia.

Later today, MindArk will be donating 50,000 USD to the UNHCR (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees) to help Ukrainians in need due to the conflict. For more information about the UNHCR, visit: https://sverigeforunhcr.se/ukraina.

 
In addition, 10% of MindArk’s revenue generated in Entropia Universe between March 10, 2022 and April 10, 2022 (minus today’s donation of 50,000 USD), will be donated to the UNHCR, allowing Entropians to also help those in need via their activity in Entropia Universe.

New Treasure Island Shares Update

After the server downtime for release 17.13.0, New Treasure Island shares will be tradable on the Entropia Exchange.

User Interface Update Postponed

Due to changing priorities related to the development of the Unreal Engine 5 client, Mindark has determined that it is not practical to implement the previously-announced User Interface update in 2021.

The process of upgrading the current CryEngine 2 client User Interface has been taking a lot of resources and is somewhat risky with regard to the technical aspects, given the complexity of the old UI framework. The decision therefore has been made to focus on implementing significant UI improvements in Unreal Engine 5 instead.

The efforts made thus far on the UI upgrade project have provided many insights and highlighted areas for improvement, which will of course help guide our efforts in crafting the user interface for the Unreal Engine 5 client.

Thank you for your patience and understanding!
