Players buy, sell, trade and develop virtual properties that are based on real-world addresses. Blockchain technology ensures true ownership for the players. Uplanders collect in-game currency called UPX as a reward for their ownership and for completing missions in the game (collections, treasure hunts,...). UPX can be used to purchase more properties, to develop land and to pay for digital goods and services other Uplanders will create and provide. The objective is to establish an open economy where various stakeholders interact/transact with each other directly, i.e. without intermediaries. Check them out: Upland.me
