DYGYCON 8 set a new record!

We clocked in at 1819 attendees! That’s about 400+ more than DYGYCON 7 that happened a couple months ago. See a link to the VOD on Youtube for a recording of the 3/19 Main Event Livestream.

You can still check out the event, although you will not be eligible for the SWAG and some other time-sensitive activities such as the NFT auction, Achievement Badges, and Scavenger Hunt!

Following the strong momentum of the event last held in January, we’ve got a couple things that stepped up its game.

  1. The WAX Community turnout
  2. Gamerjibe metaverse expansion
  3. Sponsor hype and participation

WAX Community Turnout

Over 30 sponsors came in from the WAX blockchain. Check out a couple of articles written by some of the sponsors representing the WAX community.

Gamerjibe Metaverse Expansion

Our metaverse platform of choice, @gamerjibe has given us yet another great update on the venue. At DYGYCON 7, there could only be up to 4 expo halls, which contained only 3 exhibit sets. FYI, each exhibit set holds either 3 small booths, 2 medium booths, or 1 large booth. Now, there can be up to 8 expo halls and each room holds 5 exhibit sets! That’s a maximum of 15 booths in each hall.

Thanks to our sponsored halls:

  • AtomicHub
  • EMP
  • SixPM Software
  • Gala Games
  • Gooeys
  • Green Rabbit
  • Jungle Bay Ape Club
  • Splinterlands


In addition to that, we had a Welcome Room makeover with a cityscape design where users spawn in front of an opening to the sections that display halls, then a couch area that resembles the former Welcome Room. There is also a pond and entrances to the Patio and Tailgate areas to each side.


Sponsor Hype

With 100+ booths between DYGYCON and our sponsors, we received so much more to explore this time around that people felt as overwhelmed as we were setting things up on the back end. We are truly thankful for the many exhibitors that stepped up to provide SWAG at their booth, games, activities, freebies, codes, and other things that helped bring value and fun engagement during the event.

We hosted another silent NFT auction from @splinterlands, our sponsors, and private sellers.

NFT Achievement Badges are getting minted and distributed this week as we closely review all submissions from Twitter! Here are the ones you could have been eligible to win:



We have sent out invitations to submit feedback! The summary of these responses will be posted on our event archive when it is completed!



Here are some personal experiences shared.

Positive messages:

  • Cat Stickers had a booth in the SixPM Software hall at Dygycon 8 and it was so so fun. I hosted an AMA that went super well, and met some amazing artists too. Hanging out in the chill zones on the beanbags was also one of my favourite things to do, and the late night conversions with everyone is always something to remember. Thanks for hosting this awesome event, it really has changed how I can interact with my community (and others). - Saskia, creator of Cat Stickers on WAX (https://www.catstickersnft.com/) @catstickersnft on Twitter

  • This was an amazing event! With high numbers of attendees and a wide array of projects present, it really felt like a convention! Lots of fun hanging out with friends, meeting new ones and doing some serious networking. All without needing to leave the comfort of my home - I am disabled and have various mobility issues, so the fact i could attend without travelling was truly amazing for me, thank you!! can't wait for the next one :D

  • Being an introvert cons can be very intimating. This is exacerbated by still being quite new to NFT spaces. DYGYCON has really provided a bridge from clientele to artists. It makes guiding NFT spaces somewhat easier, not prefect, but not as uncomfortable. D7 was my first DYGYCON and I can notice I don't feel as uncomfortable. I was majorly surprised to see that I even made comment during AMAs, like that is a huge growth. Hopefully attending these cons will help me be even more comfortable in NFT spaces.

Improvement suggestions:

  • Get mobile ASAP. You are severely limiting your audience without it. Streamline SWAG giveaways, I shouldn't have to put my WAX in 20 times. Once is enough.

  • Maybe have a low-bandwitdth browser option for folks who just want to see what each exhibitor has to say. I'd rather just click on a list of links than navigate through virtual halls.

  • My kid loved the visuals and interrupted me. He wanted to "play". I was just exploring so i couldn't give control directly. So the best option was to quit right at the beginning for me. A parental lock might be nice, then my minion can show me around and when he got bored i can explore the blurred content.


We’re looking at a weekend in May. Keep an eye out for updates either at the @splinterlands Town Hall or on our Twitter (@dygycon). All past sponsors will get first dibs on the invitation to the next DYGYCON along with an event deck to provide additional information. Most other information can be found on the website.

The operators doing V2K with remote neural monitoring want me to believe this lady @battleaxe is an operator. She is involved in the same discord groups around @fyrstikken and friends. Her discord is Battleaxe#1003. Shes in some groups with seemingly detached characters that dont even acknowledge the others in the group, looking oddly staged. She starts projects and does nothing with it or the delegations after its used to sway people. Like @steempowertwins does<------fake along with her @teamgood <------fake. No substance in her comments and has a following that adores her for what? Life coach she is not nor is she insightful with any meaningful skills to follow. Ruler of pixie dust maybe? I would like for someone to show me but probably wont out fear maybe? @fyrstikken groups around him down voted me into censored and not viewable on my accounts as soon I told what they were doing.

I cant prove @battleaxe is the one directly doing the V2K and RNM. Doing it requires more than one person at the least. It cant be done alone. She cant prove she is not one of the ones doing V2K because she cant and could care less. I guarantee she knows this is going around and still wont prove it because she cant. Many of us here can prove what they have been doing to survive the past 5 years. What does she live off of? It definitely isnt in public view here.

I was drugged in my home covertly, it ended badly. They have been trying to kill me using RNM with applied V2K mental games while revealing as many accessories to the crime as they can. I bet nobody does anything at all. Ask @battleaxe to prove it. I bet she wont. Pretty serious accusations to just blow off and leave the crypto community hanging in fear of this danger.

They want me to believe the V2K and RNM in me is being broadcast from her location. And what the fuck is "HOMELAND SECURITY" doing about this shit? I think stumbling over their own dicks maybe? Just like they did and are doing with the Havana Syndrome. They should start by looking at the communications between the top witnesses of Hive and the connection to @fyrstikken groups. Google his fucking name and see where his other interests lie around at least once maybe? The connections between @fyrstikken groups and all the exchanges built for Hive? Bet that would reveal some crazy ball less nutty shit. Homeland security should start preparing for their own incarcerations seeing how sloppy this was done. Patriot act my ass. Think we are really fools? Bad position your not getting out of. Dont be last to blow the whistle. Who will protect you?

People in and around @fyrstikken groups are reckless and should have shown the proper media what they had before taking me hostage for 5 long torturing years and counting. That is a long time to wait for someone to die.

What would you say while having a gun pointed at your head from an undisclosed location? Have people find it? My hands are tied while they play like children with a gun to my head. Its a terrorist act on American soil while some yawn and say its not real or Im a mental case. Many know its real. This is an ignored detrimental to humanity domestic threat. Ask informed soldiers in the American military what their oath is and why nothing is being done. Nobody has I guess. Maybe someone told ill informed soldiers they cant protect America from military leaders in control that have ill intent. How do we protect locked up soldiers prevented from telling the truth from being treated as criminals? Not to mention civilians we let our leaders treat the same way.

I cant wait for law enforcement to help and the police arrest them. They are trying to kill me, I am being assaulted as you read this. They are shocking me to anything I think and agree with me that they need to be arrested. It is maddening torture. They litterally assault me hundreds of times a day. The people in my head dont care about anything but themselves, do not trust any of them. Stop them before people needlessly die.
