When you join the Metaverse, you will need to choose your starting city. Ideally, your first task is to mint a property. Minting a property refers to being the first person to purchase the property and creating it on the block chain. As mentioned, your starting city can differ based on your initial strategy and the amount of money you are putting into the game. At any given time, the answer could change. Upland announcements, new in game features, secondary market prices are all dynamic and can have influence on the question “What city should I start in?” This page may not have the answer to where you should start, but it will tell you where not to start.
Below are the cities in order of their release dates, and their statuses. Feel free to send us a message using the blue button in the bottom right corner with any questions you might have about where is the best place to start right now.

It is possible for new properties to become available in cities that are listed above as sold out. When a visitor is inactive for one week his account automatically gets deleted. All of his properties are returned back into the game for other players to mint. It is entirely possible that this occurs. It might be worth checking to see on up2land prior to choosing your city of choice. You might be able to find something there that can get you a great markup sale.
