HiveFest⁶ will kick off soon. The event is a good opportunity to meet and have a talk with people from the community.
As usual, the HiveBuzz team will add some fun to the event by allowing you to participate in a simple and funny contest that will last for the whole duration of HiveFest⁶.
The HiveFest⁶ Meetings Contest
The contest is open to all HiveFest’s attendees and we made the participation process and rules as simple as possible.
The contest will officially begin when HiveFest⁶ is kicked-off by @roelandp on the main stage. No need to rush before it starts!
1. Register at HiveFest⁶
Upon entering HiveFest in the Lobby area you can find a big computer, which is actually running the blockchain. This is where you can register for the event.
As soon as you have registered at HiveFest⁶ at the Lobby's computer, you can go to HiveBuzz website and type your name to access your board. You will notice there is a new HiveFest⁶ tab. If you are a HiveFest⁶ attendee, this tab will be automatically selected when you go to your board.
The tab contains the avatar of all registered attendees and they will all be grayed and locked at the beginning of the contest.
You can hover or click on an avatar to display its name.
3. Meet your fellow HiveFest⁶ participants
Your goal is to meet as many people as possible and light up a maximum of badges among the ones available!
To do so, you need to scan the badge of someone you haven't met yet.
In AltpsaceVR, you will be able to "scan" someone's badge by clicking on it. A menu will appear asking you what you want to do.
Among the available options, you can choose to type the letter "H" for HiveBuzz. This means that you want to enter a meeting with someone.
For the meeting to be valid:
- Scan his/her HiveFest badge.
- You will have to spend some time with your new friend.
A delay of at least1 minutesis required between 2 mutual scans. Use this time to get to know each others.
- Ask your new friend to scan your own HiveFest badge.
Each time you meet someone (i.e. do a successful mutual badge scan), both of you will get one point and the related badge on both boards will light up and display as an unlocked avatar.
As there are more than 500 expected attendees, use will be able to use the filter button to change how the list of attendees will be displayed
|All||Click to display all the participants (this is the default view)|
|Friends||Click to display people you've already met|
|To Meet them||Click to display the participants you have not met yet|
3. The mysterious and valuable Special Attendees
Among the participants of HiveFest⁶, some of them are “special attendees” who will bring you more points (up to 115) if you meet them!
|1 gold||20 points|
|5 silver||15 points|
|10 bronze||10 points|
However, no one knows who the “special attendees” are!
Note: A random number will be assigned to each attendee. @roelandp will draw 16 random numbers, encrypt them and store them in a transaction on the blockchain. He will provide us with the encryption key in another transaction when the contest is over. This way, nobody will know who are the special attendees while the contest is running.
End of the contest
The contest will end on Saturday 13 at midnight UTC.
