What is DYGYCON?
DYGYCON is an immersive metaverse experience hosted by Splinterlands – a next-generation online collectible card game. Held on the Gamerjibe platform, DYGYCON allows you to traverse a digital conference space using a 3D virtual character, interacting with others via text, voice and webcam, and exploring the various expo halls, chill-out zones and activities.

What Can You Do at DYGYCON?
DYGYCON is a fantastic experience for both exhibitors and attendees as it facilitates networking and making connections that simply wouldn’t be possible elsewhere.
The event has a large array of booths where you can meet and learn more about your favourite games, artists and NFT projects, as well as compete in auctions, load up in the SWAG booth and take part in scavenger hunts, mini-games and various other ventures that are held throughout the weekend.
How Do I Join?
RSVP to the event here and join in the fun by clicking the “Enter Virtual Space” button (if you haven’t registered yet, the button will say “Register for Event”). If a password is required, it means that the event is not open yet. Once DYGYCON 9 is live, you will not need a password.
Your character will spawn in front of the Welcome Room. Once you head inside, you’ll find the various expo hall doors on your left and right-hand sides. Walking through the doors will take you to those respective halls where you can see all the different exhibitors!
An easier way to get to the exhibit you’re interested in is by teleporting there. To do so, click on the top-right “info” icon to view the list of exhibitors. Click on an exhibit you wish to visit, and click on “Go To Exhibit” to be teleported to them in an instant!

We’ll See You There!
Each DYGYCON continues to get better and better, and with the amount of fun we had at DYGYCON 8, I’m really looking forward to DYGYCON 9.
Even if you can’t stay for too long or don’t want to turn your mic on, it’s definitely worth popping into the event to see some of the exhibits on display, pick up a few free NFTs or perhaps take part in an activity or two.
I’ll see you there!
