Uplandme, a San Francisco, CA-based maker of a new property trading game, raises a seven figure funding round.
The round was led by Finlab EOS VC Fund, a venture capital fund backed by both Block.one, the publisher of the blockchain protocol EOSIO, and FinLab AG, one of Europe’s largest company builders and investors focused on financial services technologies, with participation from several angel investors.
The funds will be used to support the initial development and launch of Upland.
Founded in 2018 by serial entrepreneurs Dirk Lueth, Mani Honigstein, and Idan Zuckerman, Uplandme makes Upland, a blockchain technology based digital property trading game that blurs the boundaries between real and virtual worlds. Players buy, sell, and trade properties based on real-world addresses. An in-game currency called UPX will power the economy of Upland. Players will be able to complete property collections, use location-based features and trade their properties on a marketplace.
Upland launched a closed beta in June 2019 where early adopters of the game can buy virtual properties in San Francisco.
