Before NFT Worlds, there was Uplift World. Built on the WAX blockchain, Uplift World features several different Minecraft servers where players own plots of land. After some reorganization back in February, they’re now planning an airdrop in June for their new DAO governance token, appropriately called, Uplift DAO Token.
Earlier this year, the founders of Uplift World decided to buy out the rights to the game from their principal investor, with the goal of converting the project into a DAO-based governance system. And now, the first phase of that project begins in earnest as the team prepares to airdrop a significant number of DAO tokens onto land holders!
The snapshot for the airdrop was take on May 1st. But if you own any plots in any of the Uplift World servers, or have burned some of their Upliftium tokens, then you are eligible for the airdrop. Visit the Uplift World website and link your Metamask wallet TODAY to join the airdrop list! Make sure to click the Link button to lock it in once you have selected your wallet. Though the game runs on the WAX blockchain, the DAO token will exist on the Ethereum network for ease of voting.
The Uplift DAO Token (UDT) will see a full mint of their 100 million tokens on the first day. 25% of the total tokens are allocated for airdrop distribution in two batches. Neither airdrop date is set, but I would expect at least one in early June. The team wants to build a real community DAO, where every big decision goes up for vote. DAO proposals and voting will occur on snapshot.org, with an initial quorum of 15% needed for a full vote. Their will be various DAO committees to take care of the actual management of the DAO. And, in true democratic spirit, the election of committee members will happen through DAO votes as well!
To be a part of the community, I strongly suggest that you join their Discord server. This is the primary point of communication and the place to go for the latest news and happenings in the lands of Uplift World!
What is Uplift World?
Uplift World is a Minecraft based game built on the WAX blockchain. Offering player owned plots, Uplift World hosts several servers, both creative and survival types. The game features a checkboard pattern rail system for ease of travel. Many other WAX games and projects own land plots with their own special builds.
Uplift World drops WAX and Upliftium tokens to players based on their activity and plot owners based on the amount of activity on their plot. They promote a play and earn economy rather than play to earn. This system encourages plot owners to make interesting builds and hold events to attract players to their site. And indeed there are regular events on the servers. From village defense, to treasure hunts, to dance parties! , and .
Uplift World does feature its own token, but it’s for in-game use only. Players can use Upliftium to import images into the game, install portals, setup shops, and other game activities. The token iteself doesn’t exist outside of the game, but players can burn tokens into an NFT, which can then be traded on the markets and redeemed for the same amount.
