And ICE Poker daily active players reached 7,389.

🔨 DG Website Updates

🔨 ICE Poker Metaverse Updates
ICE Poker Teleporters
We’ve added teleporters to enable players to easily teleport between ICE venues to find open tables within the same realm.
💻 Development Focus
This week, the DG team is working on:
Assigned seating is our main priority development-wise, as it will most effectively address collusion and check tables. Following implementation, we are eager to add additional features to reward for top scoring players and guilds.
Alongside assigned seating, we will also include a cooldown period to further combat check tables.
If you leave a table that has 3 or more players playing, you will enter a cooldown period before you can join another table. The cooldown period will get progressively longer each subsequent time you exit a table throughout the day.
Finally, we will add an IP check to ensure that players that share the same IP cannot join the same table.
Guild Management Gamification
Following assigned seating, we’re adding several features to the delegation dashboard to further gamify the guild management experience unlocked by holding a certain balance of xDG.
Name your Guild and Players
ICE Poker guild owners will be able to save a custom guild name to be displayed on the future ICE Poker Guild leaderboards, as well as nickname players for easier management.
The ICE Poker Guild Leaderboard will rank top guilds by their net chips gain per player during a given time frame.
Player Lookup Tool
The ICE Poker player lookup tool that will allow you to enter an address and see their historical ICE Poker performance.
Improved Minting Experience
We are implementing a better minting experience that will automatically change the mint button to active during drops so that you are not required to refresh at the top of the hour, as well as a waiting room experience that should further reduce the amount of token minting errors.
DG Website Optimization for Mobile
Currently all web3 functionality within the DG and ICE Poker ecosystem is only available on desktop. We have started development on bringing all website functionality - staking/unstaking DG, delegating ICE wearables, viewing your ICE Poker delegation dashboard, claiming ICE, upgrading wearables, etc - to your mobile browser through deep linking to authenticate via Metamask Mobile.
ICE Poker Mobile
We’ve started development on a lightweight, mobile-focused ICE Poker experience that will enable greater accessibility and exponential scaling.

🏛 DG Governance
The following 3 proposals were passed this week:
100K xDG to submit a proposal and 10M xDG to reach a quorum.
Update the ICE Poker leaderboard multipliers to:
Allow the team to conduct advertising deals where approved partners would be able to place video, audio and/or still image ads within the ICE Poker venues in exchange for stablecoins (USDC, USDT, and/or DAI) to be used for one or more of the following at the DG team's discretion:
buy $ICE to burn
add to ICE-USDC Quickswap LP
At the end of each month, the DG team would disclose the ad revenue totals and specific allocation of funds towards the items listed above to the community.
