The Upland team had quite a busy first half of 2019. They've launched the Alpha version of Upland, then they've entered beta and eventually launched on the EOS mainnet. And now, they're announcing many great things for the second half of 2019.
Upland's Currency Is Coming
The Upland team said that its native currency, UPX, will arrive by the end of 2019. UPX will act as a utility token on the EOS mainnet system and enable the players to seamlessly exchange value in-game and purchase goods in the store.
Players will also be able to purchase properties with UPX, and trade, buy or sell those properties to other players, also in UPX. Moreover, they'll be able to collect yields from their properties in UPX.
The Upland Collection will be a set of properties grouped in one unit. These Collections will consist of a limited number of properties that will either be settled near each other or will have similar characteristics.
You'll be able to collect various types of properties, such as trees, parks, museums, and buildings. For example, if you own all museums in a particular city, this will form a Culture Collection. Each collection will be pre-determined and limited, which will encourage the users to pursuit the properties to complete collections. And, whenever you complete a Collection, you'll receive a one-time reward from the Upland team.
Marketplace And Avatars
The Upland marketplace will enable the players to freely trade their assets. The marketplace will be particularly useful for completing collections because it will enable you to make offers on any property, whether or not the owner put it on sale.
Similarly, you will be able to sell unwanted assets and accept lucrative offers from other players. Keep in mind that you'll be able to trade and swap properties with other players in a way that suits both parties.
And lastly, the team promised to add avatars by the end of 2019. Avatars will be everything in Upland because they'll bind all the features we mentioned thus far. Through avatars, you'll be able to explore the world, look for new properties and go on random adventures. There'll be a variety of avatars to choose from, of which some will be extra special.
If you're still not performing Upland, consider joining the beta waitlist on the Upland official website. And as always, feel free to browse through our DGaming Store to find other cool DGames. If you like Upland, you may want to try games that are similar to it, like MegaCryptoPolis, NeoWorld, or ExoPlanets.
