PRESS RELEASE. In mid-June of this year, Upland reached a major milestone, where 1 million Property NFTs were minted on their platform. Another gigantic leap has recently been made in the metaverse: players have earned $1,000,000 by participating in the Upland Metaverse Economy.
Upland.me is an NFT metaverse mapped to the real world, where players can buy, sell, and trade digital properties. They have been breaking records in recent months, and have just hit a new milestone. $1 million worth of NFTs have been either bought, sold, or traded between Upland users. This means that digital property trades between players have crossed the $1,000,000 threshold.
Upland currently has in-game locations in various US cities such as: New York City, San Francisco, Chicago, Oakland, Cleveland, and other smaller cities spread across the United States, with more on the way. Each property in the Upland metaverse is a non-fungible token (NFT) on the EOS blockchain, giving the users true ownership of their properties.
Upland’s metaverse stands out amongst other NFT metaverses largely because it is mapped to the real world. This allows players to explore a familiar metaverse and buy property NFTs that are meaningful to them. Property development is also being rolled out, and players can now build on their property parcels with Upland’s unique, stakeable, Spark token, which creates a unique Structure NFT built on their owned land.
Upland’s approach to a free market economy means that players are able to flip property NFTs and make informed decisions about their property buying strategy. Soon, players will also be able to start their own businesses to enable greater economic activity to support real-world earnings. Real laws of supply-and-demand are already taking hold in Upland, and the metaverse will continue to grow as more features, partnerships and collaborations develop.
Everything in the metaverse is scaled to real world economics. Their in-game token, UPX, is the primary means for players to purchase, trade, or sell their assets amongst each other, allowing them to cut deals and enact their own wit to grow their net worth. UPX has a fixed rate of $1 to 1,000 UPX.
Players have seen incredible returns by making strategic property purchases and later selling these properties for a profit. When asked how players’ net worth has changed over time, player BEN68 recalled that his net worth had grown “From 4,000UPX when [he] started in January 2020, to 64,500,000UPX in June 2021.” This represents an astonishing 1,612,400% increase in his net worth! GreenTurtle, another Uplander, reported only investing $5 into the platform and has realized gains of over 100,000%.
This is just the beginning for the Upland metaverse. The Property-to-USD beta facilitates trade between players with real US dollars, allowing them to also earn fiat currency from their in-game assets. This enables Upland’s Play-to-Earn gaming model, which gives players the unique opportunity to see real-life returns from their strategy and ingenuity.
