Block Explorers are different avatars that you can used and are your identity in the game. They will also become drivers in car races. There are some standard avatars that can be chosen 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 assets that you own. Each one has its own description and quantities that exist. Block Explorers can be bought from the Upland store, player run metaventures, or earned by participating in events or challenges. See here the block explorer directory to learn about a block explorer’s origin, when and under what circumstances it was issued.
Block explorers are your identity in the game. When you define your Upland home, you are also able to generate a custom profile picture with your block explorer. Below is an example of mine with Dale the Llama, and learn more about creating your metaverse identity here.
Some of the most coveted block explorers are terraformers and wizards, which are introduced when new features are introduced into the metaverse. Learn more about terraformers and wizards here.
With the introduction of cars, the different block explorers will be drivers of the cars. If you plan on participating in car racing, it will be important to have a quality driver. Since every block explorer is unique, each explorer will also have different characteristics and driving abilities. Watch the video below to learn a bit more, and also read up about cars in Upland.
