By VisionX | Blockchain365 | 25 Feb 2021


Blockchain technology makes things easier to run so many real-world applications. This genuine groundbreaking technology has opened the door for endless possibilities in the digital world. The simulated economies from the traditional games have the notorious downside as such games do not offer true ownership to the players over their assets because game creators are there to take control over the activities of players. Blockchain technology is the game changer to bring the revolution even in the gaming industry. Immutable records from a transparent ledger of blockchain ensure the true ownership of the assets for a player and the creation of a decentralized marketplace is possible by enabling blockchain to the gaming platforms. Additionally, blockchain allows the creation of Non-Fungible Tokens (NFT) that can be allocated to the unique accounts, and the NFT holders can be distinguished genuinely even on the public blockchain.

Recently, Upland Foundation has introduced EOS blockchain-powered Upland and its OPEN BETA allows you to:

  • Own, sell, trade, and collect the digital properties which are mapped to the real-world addresses with genuine ownership.
  • Utilize the rapidly advancing blockchain technology to reach a mass audience via blockchain-powered gamified experiences in a fun way.
  • Provide true ownership to players by adopting the "Open Market Economy" model.
  • Allow stakeholders to interact directly with each other in a decentralized market by creating a sound economy.

Technical background of Upland:
EOS.IO blockchain software-enabled Upland uses EOS mainnet. The virtual collectibles game allows players to have ownership of virtual real estate properties that are mapped to real-world addresses and to ensures transparency to everyone, ownership of the properties will be recorded on the blockchain that. The private key of EOS accounts of players will be encrypted on the client level and can only be decrypted by using the login credentials on the Upland account.
