Exchanging Real Money for Virtual Estate

About Upland

With over 2.5 million users, Upland's metaverse is one of the fastest-growing blockchain-based economies. Players can buy, sell, and trade virtual properties and other assets within the game.

The Challenge

To create a complete digital economy that provided players with the opportunity for real-world financial gain. They needed a way to accept USD payments from players for digital goods, and to enable player-to-player purchases of digital goods.

The Solution

Upland used Tilia's API to power incoming payments, transactions, and user payouts, saving their team countless amounts of time and resources. Tilia’s built-in compliance management and enhanced security monitoring make it easy for Upland to enable transactions and payouts without regulatory concerns.

“Tilia helps fulfill our promise of offering players true ownership of their digital property by allowing those goods to retain value in a fair and open marketplace.”

About Second Life

Second Life was a pioneer in virtual worlds and metaverses when it launched in 2003. Almost 20 years later, it continues to have a large and dedicated user base building an ever-expanding virtual world where residents can play, live, and conduct business together.

The Challenge

Second Life wanted a fully-functioning economy that benefited creators. In addition to needing the ability to accept payments, Second Life needed to offer Stored Value Wallet to support the digital economy, and enable creators’ to extract real money from in-world earnings.

The Solution

Tilia was created by the team at Second Life as a compliant solution to power its entire economy. After spending years and significant resources securing Money Transmitter Licenses in all required US states and territories, Tilia now accepts payments and processes payouts for Second Life’s $650 million USD economy.

“Tilia is built to scale and already safely and securely supports transactions in the Internet’s leading virtual world.”
