I have been playing this game for a few days now and it’s quite addictive, but a little bit slow. Upland is a virtual property metaverse that offers true ownership of NFT property parcels mapped to real addresses.
Upland is a blockchain-based game in which users can buy, sell, and trade virtual properties mapped to the real world. By becoming a “digital landowner,” users can build properties and earn UPX coins. The project utilizes blockchain to tie each property within the Upland platform to an NFT.
The game will be slow unless you trade of buy some in game currency.
If you want to try out upland for yourself please check out womplay – they have a suite of mobile and desktop games – I will review some of these in the future.
Perhaps unique from many new rising blockchain-based games, Upland is seeking to create a market-based digital economy that blurs the lines between the real world and the digital world.
Users can purchase digital assets within the game with fiat or cryptocurrency (using the UPX coin) and trade the assets with other players. However, it’s worth noting that for sometimes there was no way to cash out your UPX token – all you could do is reinvest it in other properties, which earn you more UPX.
Its partner Tilia Pay specializes in helping video game publishers create in-world economies and monetize their interaction with other users. This partnership now enables users to essentially convert their holdings back into real-world value, breaking the barrier between the real world and the digital world.
Here’s how it works:
- Players can place their assets up for sale on the platform in USD.
- The user goes through a KYC (Know Your Customer) process.
- Once a property NFT is sold, the Uplander can pull out their USD earnings directly to their private Paypal account.
The Upland community appears to be small but fairly interested in gameplay. One player, Wulfinite, bought three properties for $500 UD each and his logic was as followed:
- 350 Mcallister St. (initial mint price of 193,280 UPX, or ~$193 USD) was bought because it is near City Hall.
- 3 Community Visitor Center (initial mint price of 135,520 UPX, or ~$135 USD) was bought because of the Rarity of Angel Island locations.
- 401 23rd St. (initial mint price of 356,860 UPX, or ~$356 USD) was bought for its area, as Wulfinite intends to create a preschool there.
