Image What is Ultima (ULT) ?
"The emergence of blockchain-based decentralized digital currencies woke up hopes for the beginning of a better world. A world, where wealth is distributed fairly without control and influence of a powerful middleman. Although blockchain technology equipped us with a perfect tool to make this dream come true, it will not happen by itself.

The concept of a socially responsible cryptocurrency inspired us to create Ultima - a platform designed to support endeavors of its community in various areas. The Ultima Multi-Module Platform (MMP) includes functionalities ranging from a digital marketplace to crowdfunding and charity components. By working together on noble causes we will regain the faith in cryptocurrencies. "

What you need to mine ULT on a mining pool ?

1. Wallets.

You'll need a wallet address to receive the ULT coins mined. It is better to either create a web wallet or download the wallet according to your Operating System.

2.1 Miner Software.

For nVidia cards we recommand using CCminer.
You can download ccminer according to your Operating System:

CCminer 2.2.5 (tpruvot) : https://github.com/tpruvot/ccminer/releases
CCminer 8.21 (KlausT) : https://github.com/KlausT/ccminer/releases

2.2 Miner Configuration.

2.2.1 Create a new launch file ("mine ULT on unimining.bat" using notepad or notepad++ under windows) and paste the following command into it:
ccminer -a skein -o stratum+tcp://skein.eu1.unimining.net:4935 -u UbFCPpjtJcsiLHuhR9W2LKLN8zGWJJMUBB.workername -p c=ULT
Please note the following arguments to the miner ccminer :
-a skein : set the algorithm to skein
-o stratum+tcp://skein.eu1.unimining.net:4935 : set the mining pool URL and stratum port.
-u UbFCPpjtJcsiLHuhR9W2LKLN8zGWJJMUBB : wallet address used as username. Please remove this example address and write your own address created at step 1
-p c=ULT : optional (password) parameters. -p is used to give the password related to the username. As mining is anonymous, the password is used to pass optional arguments. c=ULT is used to force YiiMP to mine Ultima (ULT is the symbol defined on the pool for Ultima) : YiiMP should detect the crypto-currency mined according to the wallet address but as coins are forks of other coins (and some don't adapt address' code), it doesn't always work as expected. So we recommand to always set the coin with at least the optional parameter c (ex: c=ULT).. stats is used to perform a benchmark of your GPU (first GPU on multi-GPU) on the 50st share. To add several parameter, seperate them by commas, e.g. -p c=ULT,stats to set the coin as Ultima and perform benchmark

2.2.2 Launch the *.bat file and check wallets' page after 5 to 10 minutes.

Remark: some anti-virus and anti-malware may detect the miner as a virus. It is due to the fact that miners were integrated in malwares and virusses so some anti-virus detect the miner as a potentially dangerous component. We use these binaries since years: we've never encounter problems because we avoid to download any binaries and always use the offial binary release on bitcointalk or github.
