Un is rare, fair SHA256d, pure Proof of Work crypto-currency with fast 3 minute block targets and KGW difficulty adjustments every block.
It was fairly launched October 18, 2013 by Blazr2.
There was no pre-mine of Unobtanium, not even a single block, and no IPO. There is no POS inflation. The launch was an undisputed fair start, with low rewards of .001 Un the first 2000 blocks to give all miners a fair shot. Unobtanium's blockchain (aka "The Rockchain") has been consistently mined at high difficulty since it's launch.
Block rewards began with 1 coin per block, halving every 100,000 blocks and finishing with a minimum subsidy of .00001 Un. The final 250,000th Un will be mined in about 300 years. The current Un block reward is .015625.
Un is often referred to as a crypto-commodity due to it's rarity and desirability, and it's tendency to hold it's value even in a declining Bitcoin market. Many merchants accept Un for variety of products through CoinPayments.net, or directly. Uno has an active community, a trust-based exchange, a secure merged mined blockchain.
Take a look at Unobtanium, and you'll quickly see that it is set apart from other cryptocurrencies in important ways, including low inflation, community, longevity, fairness, rareness, distribution, simplicity, security, and optimism. Uno is a different kind of cryptocurrency, and is well on its way to becoming the first cryptocurrency desired as a non-asset backed commodity.
Uno implemented merge mining with Bitcoin at block 600,000 in May, 2015. Merge mining allows a Bitcoin miners to also mine for Uno. As a result the security of Uno's blockchain increased significantly. Bitcoin miners earn more for their hash, while contributing to the security of Uno's blockchain. Miners will continue to receive Uno block rewards for the next 300 years.

Great to see UNO markets on Cryptopia!
UNO is rare, low inflation, high hash, strong network, launched fairly in 2013. It's a solid coin for a basemarket pairing.
I've been looking forward to seeing this open up.
Can we adjust the font size of the coinpayments banner?
my support of cryptopia and love of UNO are highly co-related
The UNO network is strong, but if you would like to help make it stronger, consider sponsoring a node.
My actual cost of adding a UNO node through AWS is approximately us$60/year ($5/month). I have experience doing this, and now have an image that lets me stamp them out pretty fast.
Let me know if you would like to sponsor a UNO node, and I will add your node to the OP with a "Sponsored by <Your Name>". Yes, I accept UNO. I will set it up and manage everything on your behalf. You can select the region (East US, West US, Europe, India, Australia, South America, Japan, Korea, Singapore, etc). I will tie these node together to create a tight network
BONUS: These stable little Windows servers can handle 2 different coins (as long as the blockchain is < 1GB and not too torrid. I couldn't operate a BTC node, for example).
So if you sponsor a UNO node, I can piggy back another altcoin on the same server for no additional cost (as long as it has a stable and working Windows wallet).
This is a way to improve UNO's network and help other altcoins in the process.
Lets strengthen the network, provide a list of known and trusted UNO community sponsored nodes, and help some other altcoins in the process.
GOAL 1: Add 20 new trusted and interconnected connected nodes across all global regions. Redundancy, reliability, strength will help ensure that UNO remains among the strongest and most reliable cryptocurrency networks.
GOAL 2: Support the price of UNO. The annual cost of a node is us$60 in the day's UNO equivalent (47 Un today). I intend to hodl Uno payment for orders.
GOAL 3: Help other altcoins, combine our mutual interests, share our community's expertise, and maybe even ignite some interest in the altcoin<>Uno pair on Cryptopia.co.nz, if one exists. Its an outreach. The UNO community shares your interest in keeping the servers up, since our interests are combined.
Latest update i Found Regards Lafu
I'm not sure who LaFu is, but he copied text from our thread on Bitcointalk. Hopefully he's a well meaning member of the UNO community just trying to get the word out. The NODE program is indeed an effort by the Unobtanium community. We want to make our network stronger by helping the networks of other altcoins.
I am the point of contact for this program, and I will be setting up and managing the node server. You can read about the initiative as posted on BCT here. You can confirm my identity by messaging me on BCT as fallingknife.
You can contact me through UNO's email address, email@example.com, or bitmessage me at the BM- address posted in my signature on BCT.
Please don't send money for this program to anyone else. I wouldn't want you to be disappointed.
These are UNO nodes that we have already set up.

Happy 3rd Birthday UNO!
Today UNO was fairly launched by Blazr2.
The launch was pre-announced publicly on BCT. Not one block was premined. The first 1K blocks were mined at low reward to give miners a chance to configure their equipment. To fund the first UNO faucet, Blazr2 had to beg to buy UNO from miners.
I doubt it is even possible to launch a coin like UNO today.
While 1000's of other coins have perished, UNO continues to be supported by a dedicated cadre of enthusiasts, most are crypto longtimers who still actively trade altcoins, but make UNO their "homebase coin."
UNO is merged mined with Bitcoin, and today has about 2 Petahash (2000 THS) on it. The network is strong, with community sponsored nodes around the world. The blockchain (called the 'rockchain' in Uno parlance) is 3x faster and more lean than Bitcoin. KGW protects the rockchain from being stranded at high difficulty. UNO has an active core developer and the support of other developers who have stepped in when needed to keep UNO solid.
UNO is the most successful of the "rare" limited issue altcoins. Only 250,000 UNO will ever be mined in 300 years. Today there are about 197,000 UNO, with only about 3 Uno being produced each day. UNO has passed well through its inflationary phase, and today has one of the lowest inflation rates of any coin, making it a great base pair for trading on Cryptopia exchange.

it should work now in unobtanium.conf file, or by typing into the console: addnode node1.unobtanium.uno add <enter>
Honered that UNO is still at the Cryptopia table.
The UN market seems to be on pause but extremely tight.
Please open the gates. The ALT pairings drive volitility.
Right now UN is +/- 1cent in USDT.
Solid in LTC.
And explosive in BTC, Doge, given sudden shifts.
Looks like UNO fits nicely with LTC DOGE and USDT combo base pairings.
Again focus is on the ALT markets, so the BTC trade might be sluggish, with pronounced floors and ceilings.
Now wonder is it possible for a small cap to dictate the markets of ETC or XMR? No that's crazy, but it might start with Doge!
May I also ask that FTC phoenix and DOT pairs be added. They would be lovely additions to the family UN.
UNO has been on fire! About to break $12/uno.
