Never heard of UNIRIS? Yet, this young startup born in 2017, founded by cyber-security and finance specialists, got into Blockchain very early on… and just launched its UCO token on,, and! Why should you keep an eye on the project? We’ll explain it all to you!

Your identity under high protection

UNIRIS, what is it? Nothing less than a French project carried out in order to disrupt the security of personal data, especially in the emerging world of decentralized digital identity. A way to finally protect your personal data very effectively, in short!

But what exactly does UNIRIS propose to achieve this goal?

The startup has in fact developed a biometric authentication solution based on the venous network… and coupled with an ultra-fast and secure blockchain! That’s it, folks!

The project has been judged very solid, and not by just anyone: as you will see, CNRS researchers are part of the team and have given their support to this company like no other… But the company is also a privileged partner of the 2024 Olympics, which will soon take place in Paris.

A strong track record

And the blockchain to support the project is exactly what will interest you! It works with a new in-house consensus called ARCH. This allows us to combine ridiculous energy consumption (compared to ancient crypto-currencies operating with Proof-Of-Work), very high tolerance to malicious validators, and a Dantesque number of transactions per second to be able to support the protocols deployed on the network with complete peace of mind.

In short, as you will have understood, the project is not afraid to be ambitious in front of the classic giant that can be for example Ethereum. All this complex technical side is based on quality work, co-directed by Dr. Charron-Bost, a world-renowned scientist in decentralized networks and a researcher at the CNRS.

A promising token

The project also has plenty of ambition for its homemade token, the UCO token. This token, designed on a fixed offer of 10 billion UCOs, is based on a pre-programmed token destruction mechanism. This “burn” where tokens are progressively destroyed will reduce the available supply over time!

The UCO token is available on several exchanges and you can visit the website to know all the project and listing details.

The team also incorporates certain conditions restricting the release of the tokens intended for it, so that it would only be possible to release capital for investment in certain specific and previously defined cases.

As you will have understood, the UNIRIS project is a big one, but the team seems strong enough to tackle it. Would you like to take part in the adventure? Feel free to give it a try, to support this young French company which is certainly not finished making a name for itself!
