Upland is a blockchain-based metaverse game that merges the physical world with the virtual one, allowing players to buy, sell, and trade virtual properties that correspond to real-world addresses. The game operates on a play-to-earn model, where players can earn UPX, the in-game currency, by participating in various activities within the game.
Players can purchase real estate, landmarks, and build structures, with the ultimate goal of generating profit through trading and renting properties. The game uses blockchain technology to verify and track ownership of these virtual properties, making each player’s holdings transparent and secure.
Upland also facilitates a thriving digital economy, with players able to run businesses, visit cities, and interact with others within the Upland community.
