Crypto Basics

1What is Crypto?
A cryptocurrency is a digital currency that is secured by cryptography, which makes it nearly impossible to counterfeit or double-spend. Many cryptocurrencies are decentralized blockchain networks—a distributed ledger enforced by a disparate network of computers.
2What is WAX?
The Worldwide Asset eXchange™ (WAX), known as the King of NFTs, is the world's #1 blockchain as measured by both the number of users and by the number of transactions, according to Dappradar.com. The term "WAX" is also often used in regards to the WAXP token used for transacting on the WAX Blockchain.
3What is an NFT?
An NFT is a Non-Fungible Token. In its most simple explanation, it attributes ownership of a digital property to one single person.
4What is Defi?
DeFi, or Decentralized Finance, is financial services with no central authority. It involves taking traditional elements of the financial system and replacing the middleman with a smart contract. It is the merger of banks and blockchain technology.

6How do I buy stuff?
There are several marketplaces to use your Wax Cloud Wallet. Start at Atomic Hub and log in using the credentials you used to sign up with Wax Cloud Wallet
7What makes the Wax Blockchain better than others?
The WAX Blockchain is specifically aimed at the NFT collecting and gaming community and has been optimized for this purpose. The Proof of Stake method of verification allows users to not be required to pay constant transaction fees like they would on many other blockchains. Beyond this, WAX is a carbon neutral blockchain so users can feel good about the lack of negative impact on the environment globally.
8What are "Air Drops" and why do I want them?
An Air Drop is when a project sends you a NFT, often as a reward, for being part of their Community or for holding specific NFTs from that or partner projects. Yoshidrops, for example, will Air Drop NFTs every month for those who hold their lifetime memberships in their wallet. You can buy and sell these on marketplaces like Atomic Hub.

Uplift / Metaverse

1What is the Metaverse?
The Metaverse is the collection of Minecraft Worlds created inside of The Uplift World project where users can construct incredible buildings, pieces of art, etc on their plots while building Community amongst themselves.
2What is the Uplift?
The Uplift is a project built on Minecraft utilizing the WAX Blockchain and NFT technology to offer land ownership to its users. To find out more visit the link we provided here.
3Do I need Java?
Yes! A Minecraft Java account is required to enter into The Uplift World. Don't have an account? Just follow the link we provided here.
4What is the difference between Uplift worlds?
There are 3 types of Worlds that exist within The Uplift.
  • Creative: The World known as Genesis is a land of Creativity. There is no danger in this world and you have access to all available blocks to limit your designs and builds only by your imagination (and your plot size)
  • Survival: The Survival worlds, while still tame, offer a different experience from Genesis. Rather than having all blocks at your fingertips you must collect wood from trees, mine stone and minerals, or be transported into the Nether for the rarest of items. Community is more important than ever on Survival worlds where you may wish to trade or even be gifted (or gifting) items to help fellow Survival players build up their plots. Survival worlds include Londom, Chik'in Ka'ah, as well as several others.
  • Hardcore: Unlike the other 2 options there is no land ownership in the Hard Core world. Tread carefully alone or join an adventuring group into the depths and dangers of the World which has no sun, Nemesis
5Should I play on Creative or Survival?
This is more of a personal choice. Creative, as the name suggests, is geared more towards those who want to let their creativity flow into pixelated blocks as quickly and seamlessly as possible. Start building right away with all the blocks you need at your fingertips. Survival is more for those who are looking for a challenge or a more gamefied feeling to their plot building. Bring your creativity AND your wits to the Survival worlds.
