💰 MANA Incentives for ICE-USDC LP

Our Decentraland DAO proposal to allocate $1M USD in MANA to incentivize the ICE-USDC Quickswap liquidity pool is now in the 3rd and final stage.

Proposal voting ends on June 16th. If you hold MANA or Decentraland LAND, we urge you to vote on this proposal here.

We thank you and appreciate your continued support.

📱 ICE Poker Go Alpha Test

Last Tuesday, we began alpha testing ICE Poker Go — our new mobile game mode.

We ran our first alpha testing session with around 30 community members and it went smooth! Here’s some of the initial feedback:

👾 Metaverse Advertising

Last Wednesday, Matthew (CMO) shared updates on our advertising deal.

Matthew’s Advertisement Update

Our first ad partners will be:

  • Mastercard — the second-largest payment network in the world
  • Tyson Foods — the largest food company in the US and one of the largest food producers in the world

These ads will go live in mid-July. We’ll have teleporters and leverage our Decentraland venue billboards to run display advertising. The ad revenue generated will flow directly into the ecosystem via ICE buys and burns.

We’re talking with more similar-sized companies as well as smaller web3 companies. We can’t share specific details at the moment but we’ll give updates to the community as soon as we can.

(Big thanks to Gabe and Murph for their work on this 🙌)

You can watch a video overview or read Matthew’s full post in our Discord’s announcements channel here.

🏛 DG Hodler Roundtable

Last Thursday, we held our DG Hodler Roundtable. Thank you to all who joined!

We had great discussions on:

  • Delegation V2
  • Future marketing initiatives
  • Upcoming games modes (SNG and Go)

If you missed it then you can listen to the recording or read the notes here.

💎 ICE Purchase and Burn

Last Monday, we allocated our Polygon validator node rewards and wearable secondary sale royalties to buy and burn 5.2M ICE — our largest ICE burn to date!

These weekly ICE burns are part of our ongoing efforts to stabilize the ICE ecosystem following the passed governance proposals below:

So far we’ve burned a total of 9.2M ICE. We’ll continue posting weekly ICE burns in Discord and on Twitter each Monday.

💻 Development Focus

This week, the DG team is continuing to work on:


We are:

  • Internally testing the Metaverse gameplay
  • Starting SNG implementation for ICE Poker Go (mobile)
  • Aiming to invite community members this week to test out the check-in flow, waiting room experience, and tournament gameplay

ICE Poker Go (Mobile)

We started alpha testing on Tuesday. We’ll open up testing to more community members during the beta testing phase.

Sign up for the beta test here.

Guild Leaderboard/Leagues

The guild leaderboards are going through final QA testing.

Product Roadmap

We’re finalizing our holistic product roadmap to publish on the Decentral Games website.

Native NFT Marketplace

We’re continuing the early development of a native Decentral Games NFT Marketplace.

The marketplace will support secondary sales of wearables in ICE and marketplace fees will be used to burn ICE.

This serves as an additional ICE sink and saves hundreds of thousands of dollars from leaving the ecosystem in OpenSea fees each month.


The DG Treasury now holds $21.29M.
