ICE Chef Drop
DG Website Updates
ICE Poker Metaverse Updates
👩🍳 ICE Chef Drop
Last week, the ICE Chef Drop distributed 1,250 ICE wearables to the community and added $2.3M to the DG Treasury.
So far, funds have been allocated towards:
Convert $2.1M to DAI for stable coin reserves
Buy $100k of DG
Add $300k to DG-ETH Uniswap V2 LP
🔨 DG Website Updates
With 2,421 native ICE Poker guilds and counting, our main focus in website development has been around optimizing the delegation dashboard.
Withdraw Delegation From Delegation Dashboard
We added the ability to withdraw delegation directly from the individual player breakdown modal of the delegation dashboard. Before this, it was only possible through the ICE inventory tab of the account page.
See Checked-In Status From Delegation Dashboard
We added a green icon next to a checked-in player on the delegation dashboard to easily view which players have already checked in during a given day.
Sort Columns on Delegation Dashboard
Clicking on the header of any column of the delegation dashboard now sorts your players by that statistic.
Improved Empty States on Delegation Dashboard
We added better empty states to the delegation dashboard to route new users to purchase an ICE wearable in order to delegate.
🔨 ICE Poker Metaverse Updates
We’ve added new animations for ICE Poker gameplay actions including ‘bet’, ‘raise’, ‘check’, and ‘fold’. The animations appear in front of a player as they make a move.
Multi-Account Ban Wave
In our ongoing effort to prevent abuse and bad actors in ICE Poker, we’ve banned addresses who have been suspected of multi-accounting. These addresses were undelegated, and will not be able to play ICE Poker again. Additionally, these addresses been removed from the ICE Beach Day whitelist.
If you are a guild owner and have noticed some of your wearables have been undelegated, we strongly urge you to find a new legitimate player via twitter versus discord. We will be taking these issues around abuse extremely seriously because if unaddressed, they can be very detrimental to the ICE Poker ecosystem and DG community.
Improved ICE Poker UI Logic
We updated the top right corner ICE Poker UI to reset for each new betting round, which makes it much easier to follow the game. Prior to this, it would show players’ moves from previous rounds, which made it confusing to follow at times.
💻 Development Focus
This week, the DG team is working on:
Improving ICE Poker Gameplay
We are implementing assigned seating, cooldown periods, and IP checks to prevent against collusion.
Preparation for Ice Beach Club NFT Drop
We will be preparing for the ICE Beach Club NFT Drop, which will be held on Tuesday, February 1st at 6pm UTC for 8,000 ICE on the DG Marketplace.
For this mint, we will deploy improved logic for handing larger amounts of concurrent mint transactions.
Read the full announcement including the whitelist logic here.
ICE Poker Mobile
We’ve started development on a lightweight, mobile-focused ICE Poker experience that will enable greater accessibility and exponential scaling.
💰 DG Treasury Snapshot
The DG treasury now holds $50.30M.
ICE Poker NFT Royalties
Last week, the ICE Poker OpenSea collection accumulated 955.18 ETH in secondary market trading volume, generating 46.80 ETH ($122,694) in royalties for the DG treasury.
ICE Poker NFT Activation/Upgrade Revenue
Last week, 357,900 DG ($115,493) was added to the DG Treasury from ICE Poker NFT activations and upgrades.

🏛 DG Governance
The following proposal did not pass as it did not reach quorum:
Update the ICE Poker leaderboard multipliers to:
This new structure would leave multipliers the same for the top 5% to top 30%, increase multipliers for top 30% to top 55%, and decrease multipliers for the bottom 35% – all while ensuring that everyone who completes challenges receives ICE.
