Upland Assets are possessions that you own within the game. To view your assets, click on the assets button in the bottom menu. Any player can see your assets by clicking on your block explorer, or by clicking your username on one of the properties you own. You can buy, sell, and trade assets within Upland. (Not all types of assets can currently be bought, sold, or traded yet. More detailed below).
Below is a list of the different types of assets that exist in Upland:
Properties are the foundation of Upland. Just like in the real world, owning land can be extremely important. Within Upland, owning land provides you with yield on those properties. Currently land owners earn 17.28% annually on the mint price of their properties. This is paid out on a 3 hour basis. Adding properties to collections can provide you with a boost to those earnings.
Another reason to own land is to hold on to it in the hopes that it will increase in value. Applying simple economic principles such as supply and demand, it can be expected that cities that have sold out can expect to see an increase in property pricing as demand for those cities increase. In the future, you will need a place to park your car, and naturally you would want to build structures on your land.
In Upland, properties can be bought (for UPX or USD), sold (for UPX or USD) and traded for other properties.
Structures are homes that can be built upon properties that you own. Spark is a limited resource that is required to build these homes and other inanimate objects. Building a structure on a property will forever link the two together. This means that you can’t sell a structure without also selling the land that it is on.
Having a home will be important as you will need to define a primary residence in the future. If you want to open a metaventure (in game business), this will need to be done using a structure.
In Upland, structures can be bought, sold and traded along with the properties they are on.

Ornaments are 3D overlay designs that are added to a structure. The first ornaments introduced to Upland were part of the Spirit Halloween Legits. Players were able to decorate their homes with spooky ornaments. Each structure type has its own ornament. It is not possible to put an ornament of one structure type on a different structure.
In Upland, structure ornaments can be bought from Upland and traded.
Block Explorers are different avatars that you can use. There are some standard avatars that can be chosen from that Upland provides, based on your status within the game. Once you reach Director status, you can travel to City Hall in San Francisco to apply for a custom 1 of 1 block explorer. All block explorers (with the exception of the standard ones provided) are your possessions. Each one has its own description and quantities that exist. Block Explorers can be bought from the Upland store, or earned by participating in events or challenges.
In Upland, block explorers can be traded. In the future you will be able to sell them in Block Explorer Metaventures.
Uploads display assets that are imported from outside the Upland Game. In the future you will be able to import NFTs you own on the WAX blockchain (and other blockchains as well) into Upland where you will be able to display them in your home, or even trade or sell them. At the moment only Upland Cards can be uploaded through the Upland NFT Portal.

In Upland, NFLPA Legits can be bought from the Upland store, and traded. In the future you will be able to buy and sell them through fan stores that will operate as metaventure businesses.
In Upland, Spirit Legits were on sale during the 2021 Halloween season. They were sold in bundles that included block explorers, Legits, and structure ornaments of different rarities.
These Legits can be traded between players. At the moment you cannot buy or sell them.
