On July 14 & 15, 2022, Qtum attended CoinGecko’s GeckoCon. Coingecko is the world’s largest independent crypto data aggregator. GeckoCon’s main mission was to update users on how Web3 will empower the Decentralized Future. The most innovative facet of the conference was its location in the metaverse. Take a look at the booths below, including the Qtum team:
Your assertion is correct, that is not some old-school RPG, that is GeckoCon in all its glory!
We also had an entire space dedicated to us at GeckoCon. So, ladies and gentlemen, introducing the Qtum Realm!
The Qtum section consisted of four main activities:
- Guarda wallet rewards
- The GeckCon treasure hunt
- Fashion show + live music from a DJ + live concert
- Miguel Palencia’s speech
The Guarda wallet is one of Qtum’s most important and valuable partners. Every Guarda wallet owner could show their wallet in the Qtum realm and receive a reward of 2 QTUM. Users could show their wallets installed on their devices via their webcam. Then, wallet owners scanned a QR code to earn their reward.
Qtum also hosted a fun treasure hunt for all attendees. If anyone found the Qtum logo at GeckoLand, they received a chance to win a Qtum branded USB battery pack, T-shirt, or an NFT.
Qtum also hosted the most epic party on the metaverse! Streaming live from Colombia, Qtum hosted a fashion show and a live band performance!
Finally, we wrapped things up with a Keynote speech from Qtum co-founder Miguel Palencia. Miguel talked about the decentralized future and Qtum’s role in that rapidly growing landscape.
This was one of the most memorable conferences we have ever participated in. “Metaverse-as-a-conference” could be one of the most interesting things in the future. As Miguel Palencia puts it:
“It isn’t possible for all our users to leave everything and attend a conference out of the blue. GeckoCon has shown us that it is entirely possible for people from all over the world to directly experience a conference without leaving their homes. We are privileged to have a diverse and global user base. It was brilliant that our team could engage with them in the metaverse!”
