✅ Last Week’s Summary

Decentral Games hosted LandVault’s first metaverse event yesterday, which included an album drop from Richard Vagner, a 10 POAP scavenger hunt, an NFT giveaway from several LandVault partners, and a Texas Hold’em poker tournament!

The event had over 300 concurrent participants and also set a DG record for most simultaneous poker players at just over 50:

Last week’s development progress included key updates to poker and the website.

Poker Updates

The team continued heavy internal testing of crypto poker, finalizing the last few optimizations to implement before officially rolling it out to the public. Additionally, improved disconnect logic is now live so players will not be disconnected while jumping at the table.

You can hop in to play poker here. To sign up to compete for crypto prizes in our daily community poker tournaments at 12pm EST and 8pm EST, check out the Discord channel.

Website Updates

The website now features new and improved Get Started landing page for referral links that better explains how to onboard to Decentral Games:

Additional website updates from last week include:

  • User balances now auto refresh on account after a deposit or withdraw

General Updates

We've made some key updates to our games infrastructure for the upcoming Decentraland Node API changes, which go live August 9th. This update will better handle realms to optimize user experience with larger groups.
