Unitus was developed as a community-centered project with the goal of uniting smaller groups of cryptocoin enthusiasts.

The project is open-source, public, and decentralized - it is not owned or controlled by anyone, and it's free to use.

Unitus provides a common ground for people from all over the world who were previously unable to work together; with multi-algo mining, participants can continue using their own separate methods while also combining their efforts into something bigger.

The coin is mined using 5 algorithms: Blake256 (8-round), Skein, Qubit, X11, and Yescrypt. Each algo can be merge-mined, and the block reward decreases by 1 percent every 7 days.

A new block is added approximately every 60 seconds, continuing the blockchain in an unbroken sequence going back to its beginning on December 27, 2014.

UIS is bought and sold at Poloniex.com.
