The Play to Earn Game Festival, powered by Gala Games, has created big waves across the metaverse as we registered more than 13.000 visitors over the course of one week. That’s almost double the amount from the first festival. Without a doubt this marks the Play to Earn Game Festival as the biggest business-to-consumer event in the metaverse.
With publishing this post, the festival has officially ended. This has been one week of crazy events, treasure hunting, learning about blockchain gaming, discovering new projects and of course joining in giveaways. During the week both Gala Games and NFT Live have done live streams at our event, which is a fun way to create engagement and interaction in the metaverse.
When I announced the Play to Earn Game Festival as a concept in September last year, I set a goal to reach at least 10 thousand visits. The first festival didn’t reach that mark, gathering 6750 visits over 11 days. However, in the past 7 days we’ve attracted more than 13 thousand visits from gamers, blockchain enthusiasts and NFT hunters from all across the globe. I couldn’t be more proud.
Special thanks goes out to Gala Games, for believing in this event and being our event branding sponsor. I’d also like to thank our event sponsors: Animoca Brands, REVV Motorsport, The Sandbox and Alien Worlds. Once again, all of you, thank you for supporting this community event, thank you for believing in creating awareness through the metaverse.
Above everything, thank you, visitors of the Play to Earn Game Festival, for taking the leap into the metaverse and being this early into the next revolution of gaming. Smartphones, VR helmets, computers, are just tools to get into the metaverse, while the real revolution is all about play-to-earn and user empowerment. 💪
Festival NFT collectible
The first Play to Earn Game Festival we issued a digital collectible NFT, a card in the Nonfungible Memories series. Even though this card series has yet to come to fruition, we will issue a collectible based on this second event as well. The earlier mentioned after-movie will be made into a card and tokenized on the blockchain through our own smart contract. The collectible will unlock a downloadable full HD video of the after-movie. This festival collectible can ONLY be purchased using PLAY.
And the giveaways?
Please know that we had 13.000 visits in the past week, and plenty of you have joined in one or more giveaways. During this week we will dive into the forms, check all entries and run raffles to pick the winners. Winners will be communicated through on our Twitter, and where needed we will reach out to winners before sending prizes.
Keep in mind, in most cases prizes are issued by our fantastic game partners. Even though we wish to take care of this as fast as possible, in same cases the NFTs aren’t ready yet or will be sent at a later date.
The next Play to Earn Game Festival
So, where are we going now? The Play to Earn Game Festival is meant as a quarterly event. First I will make an after-movie and do an event analysis, after which planning for the next event will start. The next Play to Earn Game Festival will take place in June 2021, three months from now. It could very well take place at the same location, obviously revamped for the occasion. However, don’t be surprised if we would expand our footprint more across the metaverse, embracing other virtual worlds.
The dates aren’t set in stone yet. but expect the next festival to happen at the end of June. Think about 21st to 27th of June. Whenever the event takes place, you can expect lots of cool games to learn about. There will be treasure hunts, puzzles, giveaways, interactive environments, and secret lairs. Did everybody find the CryptoStache Lair behind the broken arcade cabinet on the ground floor? If there’s one thing I want to expand upon, it’s having live events on-location.
