Upland Creates CryptoKitties Retirement Community
SAN FRANCISCO – Tuesday, June 23, 2020 – Today the developers of the blockchain-based property trading game and virtual parallel world Upland announced to its community that it has created “an island retirement resort for all your hardworking CryptoKitties” just off the coast of San Francisco on Angel Island.
In a nod to blockchain pioneer Dapper Labs and its highly successful digital cat collecting & breeding game, Upland is running a week-long event. Starting today at 7 AM PDT and running through 7 AM PDT on June 30th, CryptoKitties players can send some of their many beloved but less fruitful cats to Upland’s in-game island retirement community where they will “be immortalized in our platform, enjoying the beaches, sipping milk-based cocktails, laying around in the sun and enjoying all the fish they can eat”.
In exchange, participants get a chance to win up to 75,000 UPX, Upland’s in-game currency. The more CryptoKitties retired the higher the participant’s ranking, which will be tracked via a leaderboard. And, of course, they are encouraged to join Upland where they can visit their retired cats on the Angel Island retirement community any time. Full details and a tutorial can be found here.
The Upland platform is a virtual layer mapped to real-world addresses and offers players true ownership of digital property that they can buy, trade, and sell on the Upland open marketplace.
Launched as an open beta with properties in San Francisco early this year, future iterations of Upland will expand to include other cities and regions throughout the world, the possibility to erect structures on properties, and will enable developers to build and run businesses on the platform. Upland also plans to allow the use of digital assets created outside of Upland, and the CryptoKitties event is a sneak peek at this upcoming feature.
