Million Doge Disco is a new blockchain-powered Pokémon GO style augmented reality (AR) game that rewards players with ‘Disco Doge’ non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and Dogecoin ($DOGE). The beta version of the game is being launched globally on Saturday (July 3).
According to a press release by Vancouver-based DDP Studios, the concept for the game comes from Gary Lachance, a Dogecoin millionaire and the founder of the Decentralized Dance Party, who is “giving away one million of his personal Dogecoin that he has held on a paper wallet since 2014″ (back then, 1M $DOGE was worth around C$300). With the huge increase in the value of $DOGE over the past year, that 1M $DOGE is now worth more than C$300,000.
“We have developed a Pokemon GO style, augmented reality game that is accessible from any smartphone, powered by the BLOCKv platform. 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.“
Here is how the press release describes BLOCKv:
“BLOCKv is a platform for creating highly programmable, interactive NFTs called Vatoms that can be collected through social media, AR and VR, geo-location drops, QR codes and NFC technology. Powered by the VEE token, Vatom NFTs connect brands and customers, artists and fans, citizens and governments, friends, families and communities worldwide. They can be transferred, shared, combined, traded on a marketplace or redeemed for a real world good. BLOCKv offers businesses, creatives and developers a complete architecture integrated with multiple blockchains such as Ethereum, Polygon, Binance Smart Chain and EOS.“
Apparently, “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.”
Lachance went on to say:
“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. We want to reinvigorate the culture of gifting that was a hallmark of the Dogecoin community in the early days of crypto.“
