Daiquiri 2 Update, Development Begins and so much more
Today Upland rolled out a big update. They have put in place the Daiquiri 2 update. This update has a number of back end work that will enable all the described features to come out. What it also does is add a few other unexpected fun things, including the beginning of construction of City Hall. As in the real world, construction will happen over time, so for now only the the frame is visible.
This is very exciting as it shows the next major evolution in the game is ready to roll out. So what does all this mean? Well lets take each point really quickly.
Prep for NYC opening, Air Travel, and "Heist"
This is a pretty big deal an encompasses a number of things. The NYC opening is more than just NYC. It will formalize and deploy the mechanics for air travel. It will set up "the heist" the winners of which will win the first flights in Upland and be given the opportunity to have the genesis mint in NYC (aside from the airports which are needed to get there). It sets up the mechanics for walking, driving and flying speed travel. This update also establishes the mechanics for new creations. These will all be written on the blockchain to be provably fair. I really suggest you read the medium article the team wrote to get the full view.
Badges, 3D models/property development, and general improvements
These items were more of a surprise, we all knew that property development was coming soon. It was also a debate, which is first NYC or Development. Leave it to the team to drop them both together! Now, I admit, this is just the prep work, development isn't fully available nor is NYC, but it is exciting that the same update put the mechanics in place for both. Very slick. Another surprise was the badges. This means that explorers for founders and broadcasters will be on block explorers. So what do those two things mean. A founder is anyone that was in the game before Dec 2019. If you are a founder you kinda know you are a founder. A broadcaster is anyone who is a verified UCN member. I would fall into this category and I am very excited for my badge.
So that's it for now, but keep an eye open for updates by myself and all the talented UCN broadcasters. If you are not already part of the Upland family feel free to use this link to get a 50% bonus on your first UPX purchase. Give me my UPX!
