What are Upland Tours? A tour in the metaverse is the same as one in real life. You visit locations of importance and learn about them. The benefit of the Upland tours are that you don’t physically have to travel there, only your block explorer does. You get to experience the sites, and even get a souvenir at the end!
In honor of World Tourism Week, Upland is hosting some of its favorite tours. By completing them, you are able to earn some special custom block explorers, and potentially some spark!. These events will take place the week of September 27, 2021).Jump to the bottom to learn how to register, or continue reading to find out more about tours.
Each tour is unique to its city and surroundings and a great way to get to travel and experience different cities in the metaverse!
Aside form experiencing a tour, each player who completes the tour receives a custom block explorer that commemorates the tour. Below is the custom block explorer that was given to participants of the “A Hero Is Drawn” comic book tour of Manhattan. Click here to view the tour locations on our instagram stories. In addition, you receive UPX which comes close to covering the cost of registration for the tour. (Make sure that you read the press release for the tour you are participating in. This information may not be 100% accurate).
How to register and participate?
- During the specified registration times, click on the treasures button in the main menu within the game.
- Select the specific tour you wish to participate in. If you don’t see the tour listed, ensure that you have selected the appropriate city. Click on the globe to see a list of cities. Note that you do not need to be in the city where to tour is taking place to register, but you do have to travel there to participate.
- Pay the registration fee in UPX
Before travelling to the city, make sure you collect maximum sends. Upland will give you enough sends in order to participate in the tour, but its always nice to maximize them beforehand, especially if you are coming from a lower tiered city where visits are cheaper.
If you are a new player with limited UPX, ask yourself does it make sense for me to spend UPX to travel to another city to participate in the tour. The tour itself is typically live streamed on youtube. You can watch it there are learn about the sites. A block explorer is a nice collectible to have, but ask yourself if its worth it at the moment if you are still trying to grow your portfolio and net worth.
Once the tour goes live, go back into the treasures tab and select the tour. Note that you must register during the defined times, and your block explorer must be in the city where the tour is taking place. You do not immediately receive your custom block explorer at the end of the tour. It typically takes over a week.
