Upland Partners with The Sandbox

Upland has partnered with The Sandbox to foster creativity and participation across both metaverses. This partnership coincided with the full release of Bermuda Island and was announced at the Genesis LIVE event in Las Vegas this June.

Upland and The Sandbox announced their partnership to encourage both communities to create and participate in each metaverse. Upland is setting up an HQ in The Sandbox, while The Sandbox gets an exclusive neighborhood in Upland. LAND owners can participate in an exclusive drop by The Sandbox, including properties from its Upland neighborhood. Upland users can win $SAND tokens and exclusive NFTs by completing tasks in The Sandbox.

Sebastien Borget, COO and Co-Founder of The Sandbox, highlighted the significance of this partnership. He emphasized that this collaboration brings together two strong Web3 gaming communities to offer new ways for people to build, create, and connect. Borget sees this as a step towards revolutionizing digital interaction and enhancing creativity and innovation across different ecosystems.

To celebrate this partnership, there will be a joint design competition. Creators can submit voxel-styled structures for The Sandbox neighborhood in Upland. They can also design Upland's headquarters in The Sandbox.

Dirk Lueth, Co-Founder and Co-CEO of Upland, expressed excitement about this collaboration. He stated that this partnership enriches the experience for both communities and advances the vision of an Open Metaverse, where players and assets can move across platforms for a more immersive web experience.

Bermuda: Complete Island Discharge

Following an April Fools offering, Bermuda has now been fully released. All remaining properties on the island were opened on June 7th at 10 AM PT. No further openings are planned for this unique city inspired by the Bermuda Triangle.

A total of 16,500 properties are now available in Bermuda. The island features an airport, 13 landmarks, 10 collections, 9 neighborhoods, and around 10% of FSA properties. There is no train terminal, and no future expansions are planned. The official treasure hunt tier is set to 4, with average property prices listed at 62,908 UPX, a minimum of 1558 UPX, and a maximum of 1,536,000 UPX.

This launch also introduces new structures, including 5 residential designs and 2 factory options, allowing Bermuda property holders to create a distinct world.

Collections for this opening will be revealed on June 14th at 9 AM PT. The team advises the community to check their marketplace properties before the reveal and to consider removing them from the marketplace until the collections are disclosed. Unminted properties in collections will be locked 5 minutes before the reveal on Discord, in-game chat, and an official article. At 9:30 AM PT, unminted properties in the collections will be unlocked for users to mint.

To guarantee property minting in Bermuda after the collections are revealed, a Bermuda Pass is needed. This pass also gives a 15% chance for a property to be part of a collection. A sale of 1000 passes occurred on June 6th at 9 AM PT for $4.99 each. These passes can be traded, so interested users may still acquire one before the snapshot on June 14th. Eligible holders have until June 19th, 9 AM PT, to mint their properties. After this deadline, unminted properties will go into public minting at a surprise date and time.

Community Bundles

Neighborhood Bundles offer partners and large communities the option to buy entire neighborhoods in this Web3 metaverse. These bundles are very limited and can be purchased using ETH, with unique discounts applied. Prices are coupled with USD, meaning the ETH price will change to match the USD value.

When a bundle is purchased, buyers can choose to mint all or some of the included properties. They can also open some properties for sale, with minting proceeds sent to the buyer's account monthly. Buyers can opt for a mix of both minting and opening properties for sale.

This initiative is designed to prepare Upland for future growth. Three Neighborhood Bundles were released last week: Queensridge in Las Vegas (994 properties for 6.99 ETH), Wynwood Industrial District in Miami (308 properties for 10.79 ETH), and Treasure Island in San Francisco (851 properties for 19.56 ETH).
