FinLab EOS VC Fund and several angel investors have invested a combined $2 million in Uplandme, maker of a digital property-trading game running on top of the EOS blockchain. The game, known as Upland, is billed as “‘Monopoly’ meets blockchain,” and as in the classic Parker Brothers board game, players buy, sell, and trade imaginary properties based on real-world addresses.

Community chest Angel investors in the seed round include Kai Bolik, co-founder and CEO of Gameduell, a gaming community with more than 70 games and 130 million players worldwide; Jan Sprengnetter, CEO of Sprengnetter Group, a leading service provider for real estate property valuation; and Markus Ogurek, a former vice president of Hewlett Packard Enterprise. “We invested into Uplandme, Inc. because we like the genuine idea of a virtual property market powered by the EOS Blockchain and the very experienced and passionate team behind it,” said Stefan Schuetze, managing director of FinLab EOS VC Fund.
