Economy

Upland is play to earn game. This new category of gaming is made possible due to the blockchain which means that players have ownership over their digital assets. As a player who own something you can decide what to do with it – hold and collect it, or even sell it. The ability to sell your assets to other players open up countless opportunities for players. Learn all the different ways that players can earn while playing Upland, and the different types of assets one can own.

The Upland economy has two primary tokens – UPX and Spark. Both are tokens that only exist in the Upland Metaverse. UPX is the currency used to purchase assets. You can purchase UPX using USD or cryptocurrencies at a rate of 1 USD = 1,000 UPX. Spark is a token used for manufacturing and constructing. The spark you own is yours forever. It can never be consumed. It is staked, or temporarily attached to a construction project such as building a home, and you are always in control of managing where and how it is used. More can be read about spark here. Spark can be earned in several ways, and there is even regular spark weeks where you can purchase spark from the Upland store and have additional opportunities to earn this important metaverse resource.

Players are able to open business, or metaventures within Upland. Some examples of these businesses are Block Explorer shops, or outdoor decor shops. In addition to these types of in game businesses, there is a variety of businesses that have been created to provide Uplanders with all types of services – such as spark rentals, or updates regarding property listings. Some of these businesses can be found in the Upland Guide Premium Business Directory.
