UBIC is an innovative cryptocurrency where coin distribution is achieved following a universal basic income scheme. To participate in the minting process all you have to do is to register by scanning the NFC chip of your passport. The scanning of the passport serves only to prove that you are a unique human being and your personal information are not being used for the registration. Your identity will remain hidden to other users of UBIC.
How do I get my UBI?
Go to the "My UBI" tab and click on "register a passport"
Fill out the different fields and click next.
Place your NFC capable smartphone on the inner cover of your E-Passport (try out both sides).
Wait until the progress bar reaches 100%, you should then see a message congratulating you.
If you wait some minutes you will see something appear on your balance.
