Metaventures, or in game businesses are an important part of Upland and its economy. These metaventures will allow people sell Legits, block explorers, map assets, your own NFT project, and more in the future! The car economy is playing a large part of the metaverse, and in addition to the car showroom and speedway metaventures, there will be many more types of car shops. Learn more about the vehicle economy in Upland.

Developers can now integrate 3rd party games, apps, experiences in Upland and contribute to the entrepreneur’s metaverse. As a developer (no need to any special knowledge about NFTs or blockchain), you can start creating experiences for Uplanders. Learn more here.

Not every Uplander will likely have the means or desire to open their own metaventure, however they will need a place to list their asset for sale. Players have the ability to become a sub-merchant and list their assets in a store, with the metaventure owner taking a commission (2-10%) on its sale. Read more here about how to become a sub-merchant and list your asset in a shop. Check out the Upland Guide metaventures, where we offer the lowest commission fees possible. If you do wish to open a shop, learn about the general registration process here, or what it takes to manage a business at the bottom of this page. You can also take our quiz to make sure you know all the basics.

Several different types of metaventures will exist within Upland.  The following table details the different types of metaventures. If you contemplating opening up one of these Metaventures, head over to our planning page where we have a guide/checklist that can help you conceptualize your Metaverse business plan. You can also use the playground to verify if a specific type of structure for a metaventure can fit properly on your property. The best part is this can be tested on any property in the metaverse – not only those that you own.

The monthly fees, or venture dues required to maintain a metaventure is based on its type, city it is in and the number of businesses of that type operating simultaneously. As there are more similar metaventures in the same city, the cost to operate a metaventure will increase in order to discourage over saturation of the market. Click here to understand in more detail the calculation of venture dues.

Upland has stated “Metaventures will mostly be self-regulated, and will require little interference from the Upland team”. This makes the Upland Guide Metaverse Directory the ideal place to advertise your metaventure, or to find existing ones operating in your city.
