Metaverse News: What are Layer 1 and Layer 2 in the Upland Metaverse?
Layer 1 is simply put the most basic infrastructure layer provided to us by the Upland Management and Development Team.
Your EOS blockchain entries, the data, the land, the spark, the buildings, cars, factories, NFTs, Legits, Momentos, et cetera there are all either Layer One Protocols or Layer 1 use cases.
Layer 2 is essentially an endless ability to build on the layer 1 stack with no limit but only your imagination and ability to execute it.
If you can imagine it, and build it or get it built-in software such as Blender it can be done, with the caveat that it is in the best interest of the platform and the community and is rubber-stamped by Upland, me Inc.
You may remember Olijah since I did a whole detailed interview with him for the Season 1 of Reading Between the Lines with Tan The Man. Here is the Interview:
Let’s ask The Founder of The Real Node LA Mr. Olijah Anderson what he thinks:
Question: According to you what’s the difference between Layer 1 and Layer 2 when it comes to Upland? How do you explain it to a beginner?
Answer: layer 1 is usually where your digital assets are created, sold, and stored. Layer 2 is usually where you can use the assets. Aka Utility.
Question: What is Real Node LA trying to do when it comes to Layer 2?
Answer: The Real-Node-LA is the convergence of digital spaces, mixed reality, Augmented reality, and virtual reality. The real node will utilize Digital resources to foster community growth. Our Layer 2 will appear as a hub that connects neighbors with digital resources and digital experiences.
Question: What is an example or an idea you think someone should do on Layer 2 and will be immensely successful?
Answer: there aren’t many ideas out there, so any idea should have a chance at success.
Question: Since we have Layer 1, and now developers are using Layer 2, will there ever be a Layer 2 protocol that will develop Layer 3, which will help creators create content and get monetised perhaps using both Layer 1 and Layer 2
Answer: Anything is possible.
Question: Why do you think the masses aren’t aware of what Layer 2 is and what can we do to educate them on Layer 2?
Answer: As Upland releases more purple dots, the user base will begin to see use cases of Layer 2 dev shops.
Question: A lot of Early players in Upland, think of only Layer 1, as that’s all that they have known. However, the most important aspect of Upland is Layer 2. Does it make sense to chase yield Maximisation and Land Flipping in Layer 1 or does it make sense to focus on Developing Layer 2.
Answer: Upland has already stated that earnings would eventually go away. I look at earnings as a temporary economy booster that is in place until Upland has more in-app entrepreneurial opportunities. Flipping property is a small part of Upland’s potential. This space promises the opportunity to be a digital entrepreneur with a Digital storefront. This is much more valuable than a quick 15k UPX flip.
Question: Can you make more money in Layer 1 or Layer 2 and how will this change in the future?
Answer: I think making money in Upland will be based on creativity and meeting the market’s demand.
Question: Where can people involved in the Upland Metaverse Ecosystem gain more knowledge and resources to build in Layer 2?
Answer: YouTube search web design should be a good start. You’ll need a website for layer 2 development.
Some people say that Layer 2 is so much more in the Upland Metaverse and the monetisation backbone of Upland’s will be built on 2 key aspects – Digital Advertising and eCommerce which will merge both the digital and the physical into a Phygital Metaverse World!
