Earning USD

The Digital Asset-to-USD Program

To date, players have earned over $1.8M US Dollars by trading properties in Upland! This is all facilitated by our digital asset-to-USD program, courtesy of our partners at Tilia Pay. This program enables players to list any property directly for US Dollars, meaning when another player purchases your property you'll have US Dollars deposited into your account instead of UPX. While digital asset-to-USD only currently supports property sales, it will be expanding to support all types of digital assets in the Upland metaverse, including Legits, Block Explorers, and more!

Applying for Digital asset-to-USD

All players who level up to Uplander will automatically be added to the digital asset-to-USD program. Players can learn more about how it works, as well as terms and restrictions here.

Leveraging UPX to Earn USD

While you can buy and sell properties on the open marketplace for USD, the only way to acquire fresh properties is to mint them using UPX. Many players capitalize on new city releases by stacking UPX and minting several fresh properties at release. Players often take these properties and list them on the secondary market for USD, thereby turning their UPX holdings into real-world dollars.

UPX to Acquire Digital Dssets

As the metaverse develops, there will be a variety of digital asset-types that are only acquirable using UPX. This includes but is not limited to, Upland Legits (Collectible 3D Objects), Structure Ornaments, Block Explorers, and more! The true utility in UPX is the ability to acquire rare and unique digital assets, and subsequently, trade those on the open marketplace. Alternatively, players may opt to hold them and put them to use in player homes, galleries, and more.
