One way to earn is by creating assets as NFTs within Upland that can be utilized by other players for different reasons. Whether it is something purely visually appealing to have on your property, or it provides additional utility in a layer 2 experience, the metaverse sky is the limit.

In game user generated assets must be manufactured and sold. The manufacturing is done through factories, and sales of these items will be done through showrooms. Learn more about the manufacturing process here. Showroom owners can utilize the space to sell map assets, structure ornaments and cars. Any player will have the ability to list a manufactured item in a showroom by becoming a sub-merchant. The seller will be able to set a sales price, and the showroom owner will be able to earn a commission on each sale, after accepting the item to be listed in their metaventure. In addition, the original manufacturer will also earn a royalty on the sale. Alternatively, if you own both a manufacturing plant, and a showroom you are able to list your own items, and keep your costs low.
Showrooms will be of different sizes, each of which with its own inventory capacity.
