👾 Assigned Seating
We deployed the first iteration of assigned seating to Osiris in production on Monday! This has enabled us to test the new feature with more concurrent players as we perfect it. Hop in to test it here.
We understand that this feature has been a turnoff for exploiters, but it’s better we remove these folks from our community earlier rather than later. Following successful testing in production over the next 1-2 weeks, and any fixes we need to make, we plan to then merge the feature into all 4 ICE Poker venues!
💎 Assign A Guild Manager
The 'Assign a Manager' feature is now live for Premium ICE Poker guild owners!
Guild managers can view the owner's delegation dashboard, as well as send and revoke delegations on the owner’s behalf. This is huge for the ICE Poker ecosystem as it seamlessly enables a new category of jobs to exist.
Note: Managers only can manage one owner's guild per address, and the manager's address cannot have any wearables themselves. If you are a manager who wants to manage several guilds, then you must do so from several unique addresses.
📱 ICE Poker Mobile
We’ve made considerable progress with the development of ICE Poker Mobile, now gearing up for closed beta testing within the next 1-2 weeks. Check out this recent sneak peek of the beta. All mobile mints will be in ICE – more on this soon.
📰 Bloomberg Feature
ICE Poker was featured in Bloomberg for providing economic opportunity to folks in Argentina who’ve been severely hurt by inflation.

💻 Development Focus
This week, the DG team is continuing work on:
Assigned Seating/Cooldown Period
Following another 1-2 weeks of additional testing and bug fixes, we will prepare to merge assigned seating and cooldown period features to all 4 ICE Poker production venues.
We are continuing work on the guild leaderboard and leagues, which will further gamify the ICE Poker Guild owner experience. We will add custom guild uniforms to the ICE Accessories marketplace that owners can mint with ICE for their players.
Custom NFT Emotes
Decentraland just rolled out support for custom NFT emotes! We will be rolling some out on the ICE Accessories marketplace mintable with ICE, and players will be able to choose which emote their avatar would use for their win animation.
Diamond Hands City
We will continue development of Diamond Hands City, our first Diamond Hands gated ICE Poker venue where we will host exclusive tournaments.
ICE Poker Mobile
We’re continuing development on ICE Poker Mobile, which will enable greater accessibility and exponential scaling as we grow to millions of daily active players. All ICE Poker Mobile mints will be in ICE.
Native NFT Marketplace
We will start development of a native Decentral Games NFT Marketplace to support secondary sales of ICE Wearables in ICE and save hundreds of thousands of dollars from leaving the ecosystem in OpenSea fees each month.
