Utopia is a brand new decentralized network that enables you to Chat, send Text Messages, Emails, share files, host a wallet, earn through mining, perform financial transactions and much more while you stay anonymous and secure.

Utopia uses it’s own crypto currency, it’s called Crypton (CRP). Every Utopia’s user can mine, send and receive Cryptons through Utopia Main application. The mining itself would require you to leave Utopia application running, it would use some of your PC’s RAM.

Utopia just launched a beta version of it’s network. So I decided to test it out and i would say that i am impressed :). I would advice you to give it a try if you are interested in Decentralized Technology.

First you will have to sign-up through Utopia Website, download Utopia software for Windows, Linux or Mac (around 175 MB), install it, activate and run it.

Utopia application has a simple and an eye catchy user interface. The first time it launches it will open the official channel main chat where you can chat in channels or send private messages to Utopia users.

You also can use Utopia to send decentralized emails through Utopia uMail (Currently it only supports sending emails to Utopia users)

As for the wallet, as mentioned you can earn Crypton coin through RAM mining. I left Utopia application running for 30 minutes and i earned some Cryptons. Yay!.

When you request payment you will need to reveal your Public Key. yet, in Utopia you can recieve payment using an option called Crypto Card, but there is a small fees for it paid using Crypton.

You can allocate some RAM for mining, the more RAM the more mining threads the more rewards.
