Decentral Games Celebrates 2nd Anniversary

Decentral Games 2nd anniversary

2 years ago, the $DG token was launched and the Decentral Games DAO was born—it’s been an amazing journey so far.

This Thursday, December 1 marks a major milestone for us and we have a lot to be proud of as a community. To celebrate, we’ll be hosting a 2nd anniversary party and tournament! Come join us for live music, great vibes, and special giveaways. (Details at the bottom.)

The past year was a rollercoaster of highs and lows. While recent events have damaged our industry, our vision of an open Metaverse has not changed.

We couldn’t be more excited about DG’s future. Let’s recap the highlights from the past year and focus for the upcoming year so you can share our excitement.

Table of Contents


The DG community has grown immensely and now includes 120,000+ social media followers, a vibrant Discord server with 40,000+ members, and 125,000+ token holders.

It’s amazing to see people from around the world coming together to build a community-owned gaming ecosystem.


Collectively we’ve made huge accomplishments in managing our treasury and making key decisions, such as:

  • Implementing a new reward system.
  • Balancing various ICE Poker gameplay settings.
  • Funding marketing campaigns, tournament competitions, and other initiatives.
  • Setting up an ETH node and Polygon node as revenue streams to support the treasury.

We wouldn’t be here without our community members voting, submitting proposals, and providing feedback to help shape the future of DG.


This past year, we’ve hosted over 600 (!) Metaverse events that have attracted hundreds of thousands of monthly visitors worldwide. 

These events brought various artists into the Metaverse, such as Steve Aoki, and provided new opportunities for emerging artists to connect with a global audience.

Community Led Initiatives

We love seeing community members get involved and take initiative.

Various community members have started their own projects to support the ecosystem such as Royal BabesDG Tools, and Diamond Hands Thursday.

What started as a small poker night between Crown holders has grown to a staple event that the community looks forward to every week. A huge shout out to morph, jar0d, and other Crown owners for their efforts.

Community Ambassadors

Recently we brought on @iceyyy_gaming as our first brand ambassador.

He’ll be streaming every week, giving poker tips, providing good vibes, and talking about all things ICE Poker.

We appreciate all our content creators for making guides, recording videos, streaming, translating, and helping grow the community. We look forward to bringing on more ambassadors in the future.

ICE Poker

In October, we celebrated ICE Poker’s 1st anniversary!

This past year was focused on laying down the foundation for a sustainable gaming ecosystem. With the pieces in place, we’ll be doubling down on growing our player base.

ICE Poker has come a long way since launch. We’ve been heads down building and shipping several key milestones, such as:

For a full recap, check out our 1st Anniversary article.


Throughout this year, we’ve partnered with various brands and communities to welcome them into the Metaverse and help grow their presence.

In June, we launched Metaverse advertising in our venues with major brands such as Mastercard and Tyson Foods. We also partnered with GITEX GLOBAL, one of the world’s largest tech events, to host a Decentraland-wide scavenger hunt.

Through ICE Poker Arcade, we partnered with several communities to create custom themed wearables for their members:

  • The Milk Road
  • WonderZone
  • Mutant Cartel
  • Quirkies
  • SX Bet
  • PoolTogether
  • Akumu Dragonz
  • Royal Society of Players
  • Lonely Alien Space Club
  • Blvck Paris
  • Chibi Dinos
  • Metakey

We also organized events with each partner to help onboard new players into Decentraland. Each one was a blast! We loved seeing everyone’s excitement as they tried on their wearables and took their first steps in the Metaverse.

We’re thrilled to continue working with communities interested in growing their presence in the Metaverse, organizing events, launching digital collectibles, and more.

Let’s build 🫡

Looking Forward to 2023

We thank you for your continued support. It’s incredible to see how far we’ve come, and how early we still are. We can’t contain our excitement for the future ahead as we build on our progress.

We’ll continue to ship exciting new ICE Poker features, improve the new player onboarding experience, and add more social elements such as a player leveling system, a complete free to play mode, and more. If that excites you, check out our roadmap for what’s to come.

Another key focus is ramping up our user acquisition. We’ve already started to run test campaigns and we’ll be sharing reports with the community so everyone can be part of the process. To learn more, here’s our full marketing strategy overview.

Lastly, we’ll be testing out new ways to reward our community such as referral programs, bounties, and quests (first quest down below). Community is our greatest asset. The loyalty and advocacy of the community must be encouraged and rewarded.

Bull or bear market, we’ll be here building, shipping, and playing.

Here’s to the next year of DG 🥂
