The project leverages blockchain technology to tie each property within the upland world. It allows users to buy the virtual property and, in return, earn UPX coins. Users can also purchase digital assets within the game with either fiat or cryptocurrency and also trade assets with other players.

What Is Upland? 

Upland is a blockchain-based game that allows users to buy, sell and trade virtual properties that are mapped to the real world by becoming a digital land owner. Upland started its journey in June 2019 with selected properties in San Francisco, and a limited number of individuals were granted access as beta testers.

Upland’s initial version has gained a lot of global attraction, and people have shown their excitement to play the game, proving it to be a success.

For some time, Upland didn’t allow users to cash out the UPX tokens; all you could do was reinvest it in other properties, which, in turn, resulted in more UPX. However, this issue is now resolved as Upland has partnered with Tilia pace, which assists game developers in creating in-world economies and monetizing their interaction with other users. This partnership has benefited in a way that now they can convert their holdings back into real-world value, hence bridging the gap between the real world and the digital world.

Tilia pay supports PayPal as the main payment mechanism, enabling players to buy NFT representations of real estate in the virtual land of Upland and sell it for real USD Dollars. 

Upland aims to create a market-based digital economy that breaks the barriers between real and digital worlds. With an aim to reach a wider audience, the upland application is available on both web, iOS, and Android.

How To Play In Upland?

Upland has a tier system:


All players begin their journey on Upland as visitors. It is the primary stage in Upland. In this phase, the user’s Upland account is associated with an EOS account owned by Upland, meaning that Upland owns the private key for that account. In order to support visitor activity, Upland has a pool of such accounts. 

In case a visitor does no activity for more than seven days, the assets present in that particular account are recycled back in favor of the community.

Visitors become Uplanders when they accumulate a net worth (UPX balance and value of owned property combined) of 10,000 UPX

After this, a new private key is generated by Upland smart clients that are private to that Uplander and unreadable to the Upland backend and creates a dedicated EOS account to be associated with their Upland account, giving true ownerships to the users.
