Upland, which is described as "a non-fungible token (NFT)-based virtual real estate game with an added social experience," is one of the most high-profile games to launch recently on the blockchain. The Upland world allows players to collect unique tokens associated with physical locations around the globe with gamification elements including auctions, achievements, and leaderboards.
The tokens you buy with your real world money cannot be duplicated, so they have intrinsic value. In this way, Upland is a lot like a digital version of Monopoly. In the online version of the board game, the properties can be transferred from one player to another, but there's no way for you to print off a duplicate set of property cards. Each set of properties belongs to a single player and can never belong to another player.
