Earning USD

The NFT-to-USD Program

To date, players have earned over $1.6M US Dollars by trading properties in Upland! This is all facilitated by our NFT-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 NFT-to-USD only currently supports property sales, it will be expanding to support all types of NFTs in the Upland metaverse, including Legits, Block Explorers, and more!

Applying for NFT-to-USD

To sign up for the NFT-to-USD program, visit City Hall in San Francisco (1 DR CARLTON B GOODLET PL, San Francisco, USA) and complete the registration form. Players are accepted on a rolling basis and will be notified via email upon acceptance.

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 NFTs

As the metaverse develops, there will be a variety of NFT-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 NFTs, 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.
