The game will launch in full playable beta on July 3, 2021, and is powered by the BLOCKv platform
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, June 30, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Million Doge Disco, an augmented reality mobile game that enables players to earn exclusive, interactive non-fungible tokens (NFTs), and Dogecoin within the game, is announcing that it will launch globally in beta on July 3, 2021.
The concept was created by Gary Lachance, a Vancouver-based Dogecoin millionaire and the founder of the Decentralized Dance Party. Lachance is giving away one million of his personal Dogecoin that he has held on a paper wallet since 2014; in 2014 it was worth approximately $300. A paper wallet is a simple piece of paper with two QR codes, one to add value and one to subtract value.
With the meteoric rise in the value of Dogecoin over the past year, thanks in part to advocates such as Elon Musk and Snoop Dogg, that one million Dogecoin is, at time of writing, worth more than $300,000 CAD. At Dogecoin’s peak in May, its value nearly reached $1,000,000.
“We have developed a Pokemon GO style, augmented reality game that is accessible from any smartphone, powered by the BLOCKv platform,” said Gary Lachance, Co-Founder of the Million Doge Disco. “One million Dogecoin and other digital NFT artifacts will be scattered across the globe. Each player will earn a Tamagotchi-style, interactive, Disco Doge NFT or ‘Dogeagotchi’ that you can dance with in augmented reality, receive daily ‘Dogely’ wisdom from, and use to collect Dogecoin and other rewards.”
BLOCKv is a platform for creating highly programmable, interactive NFTs called Vatoms powered by VEE tokens.
The launch will be celebrated with a free, virtual Decentralized Dance Party on July 3, at which time the Dogecoin from the paper wallet will begin to be distributed. Sign up for the Party here: vddp.eventbrite.com
Lachance’s dream is to create a ‘Doge-fueled Party metaverse’ or a new ‘Party layer’ that will sit atop reality, allowing anyone, anywhere to instantly step into a parallel dimension that is alive with sound, light, and positive vibes – turning the entire world into a dance floor.
“We will also debut a ‘Proof of Partying’ mechanism that incentivizes everyone, everywhere to dance with their Doges in order to receive Dogecoin donations from the community,” added Lachance. “We want to reinvigorate the culture of gifting that was a hallmark of the Dogecoin community in the early days of crypto.”
Lachance’s ultimate goal is to leverage open-source technologies, public dance parties and Doge memes to unify humanity.
