The top 5 mobile gaming Dapp has expanded its Metaverse to New York City. Upland has featured properties in San Francisco since its beta launch and has found huge success.
Upland is a virtual property game based on actual addresses in the world. Players can buy, sell, and trade these properties to earn income or connect with other players. Each property is an NFT (non-fungible token) that can be traded in secondary markets. The Upland economy already consists of active traders who are flipping their properties for profit on a daily basis.
New York City
Dirk Lueth, Co-Founder of Upland says, “We have been so encouraged by the success of the San Francisco launch and we are now ready to launch NYC, one of the most famous cities in the world. There are countless people who visited and are fascinated by New York City’s beautiful skylines and rich culture. We are excited to bring ‘the city that never sleeps’ to life in Upland.”
Manhattan will be the initial area of launch in The Big Apple and will continue to expand to Midtown, Upper West Side, Lower East Side, Upper East Side, and Village/Chelsea. Players can also look forward to treasure hunts, special events, and challenges that will be available soon.
Upland is built on EOS blockchain and has its own cryptocurrency, UPX. Players can generate a passive income (UPX) by owning properties and increase their earnings by completing missions. Winning treasure hunts and participating in live events also gives players more opportunities to earn.
Upland has also announced a partnership with Tilia Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Linden Research, Inc. (“Linden Lab”), the creator of Second Life. They will work together to bring about more features in Q4 this year. Upland is currently available on iOS, Android, and desktop devices.
