Metaventure Registration

Registration for Upland Metaventures is open to the general public as of August 2022. To sell Legits or block explorers you do not need to own a metaventure. You can list them in other players stores by becoming a sub-merchant. Each business owner earns a commission when a sub merchant sells an asset in the store. If you are interested in opening a metaventure, read below to understand the application process. It’s important to note that it is free to apply to open a shop, but there are some basic restrictions that are detailed below. As a shop owner you must pay monthly metaventure dues that vary based on city, type and number of shops, and previous month overall sales. Learn more about the calculation of venture dues here. If you are just looking for the link to register your metaventure, here it is. However, we encourage you to read on as there is a lot of important information you should prepare before jumping to the registration link.

If you are contemplating opening a metaventure but don’t know where to start, here is a checklist of topics that you need to address to ensure you are setting yourself up for success.

Specific metaventures aren’t easy to find in Upland, and that’s why we have two helpful tools to help you get noticed:

  1. Get listed on the Upland Guide Maps. In addition to the complete world map, we have maps broken down by specific metaventures as well. See all the different maps we have.
  2. Listing your business on the Upland Guide business directory

Why do this? What are the objectives?

  • Increase activity in a specific neighborhood or node.  Having metaventures in a neighborhood will increase its neighborhood score.  In the future, neighborhoods with high scores will spawn new collection.
  • Create a brand.  In the future, different types of Metaventures can be opened.  If you are looking to create a brand for yourself or a chain of stores, you may want to start with one of the available types of Metaventures.
