Upland has just hit a major milestone in their platform, and for the NFT landscape as a whole. Being one of the world’s fastest growing digital metaverses, Upland’s users have recently minted the millionth NFT property on the platform.
Not long after being featured on CBS/Paramount Plus’ 60 Minutes+, Upland, the property trading metaverse, has reached a record-breaking milestone by surpassing over one million NFT properties minted in just 18 months since its inception. Upland is one of the world’s fastest growing blockchain games, with an active community of tens of thousands of daily active players flipping properties and growing their net worths. The millionth property NFT was officially minted on June 15.
Upland is an NFT metaverse mapped to real world addresses, where people around the world can buy, sell and trade virtual properties. The cities which are live in Upland include San Francisco, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Fresno, Oakland, Bakersfield, Staten Island, and most recently Chicago, with the release of Cleveland right around the corner, but can be played by anyone across the world. Each property in the Upland metaverse is a non-fungible token on the EOS blockchain, giving the users true ownership of their properties.
The game’s user base has been rapidly growing their in-game net worth, and flipping properties left and right. Players have been seeing incredible returns after putting some time and strategy into their property investments. When asked how players’ net worth has changed over time, a player named BEN68 responded with: “From 4,000UPX when I started in January 2020, to 64,500,000UPX in June 2021” representing an astonishing 1,612,400% increase in net worth! GreenTurtle, another Uplander, reported only investing $5 into the platform and realizing gains of over 100,000%.
It’s not uncommon to see these types of stories in the metaverse, as the number of players and cities continue to increase quickly.
1,000 UPX is equivalent to 1 USD, and with the Property-to-USD feature that was recently introduced to Upland, more players are taking full advantage of Upland’s Play-to-Earn gaming model and cashing out their gains to real U.S. dollars. This gaming model allows players to have true ownership of their in-game assets, with full command over how they want to manage those assets.
Upland’s free market economy-focused approach will soon mean players being able to start their own businesses, continuing to flip property NFTs, and seeing their in-game investments turn into real dollars. Real laws of supply-and-demand are already taking hold in Upland, and it will continue to grow as more features, partnerships and collaborations develop.
