LAUSANNE, SWITZERLAND / ACCESSWIRE / May 13, 2022 / YouHodler FinTech Platform recently closed his first treasure hunt in the Decentraland metaverse. The experience was created in collaboration with MetaDigital, a Swiss Metaverse brand of Arcades Digital, CEO Chistroph Ebell and Kuble AG, CEO Christian Aichhorn.
The three-day “treasure hunt” challenged more than 1,000 players in a virtual “escape room style” experience to win real $30,000 in the virtual world. After the winners were announced, YouHodler conducted an interview with them to share on the company blog.
“Overall, the scavenger hunt was a resounding success.” Said YouHodler Head of Partnerships Vaida Saltenyte. “More than 1,000 participants took part in the scavenger hunt from May 2 to 4, 2022. As expected, the audience was well-balanced, made up of members of the YouHodler and Decentraland community. For three days, the event was trending on Decentraland and NFT wearables were a big part of that.”
Saltenyte also added that due to growing demand, wearable hoodies sold out quickly, but YouHodler was then dropped more directly into customers’ wallets.
In total there were three winners whose winning rules were eventually changed due to community feedback and suspicion of cheating by participants. Day 1 winner was disqualified for violating the terms and conditions (entry from a restricted country). The second day 1 winner has not responded and YouHodler is currently working on delivering the prize.
Day 2 was more positive. The winner of this day made a total of 63 attempts to perfect his results and managed to win. Commenting on the event, the Day 2 winner – whose name will remain anonymous for security reasons – said: “This was my first time playing a treasure hunt on the metaverse. I found it refreshing, but I have to say I was expecting something more difficult due to the huge $30,000 winner reward. I would have liked to see a larger building with several floors and more in-depth questions about the platform.”
As a finishing touch, YouHodler decided to offer a surprise bonus prize to all new users who joined and also update the tweet – one of the quests. Those who did receive a welcome reward of $30 MANA.
“Overall, the very first scavenger hunt was a lot of fun and the community left a lot of positive feedback,” Saltenyte concluded. “For the next one, we’ll experiment with longer duration, more difficult tasks, and a larger, multi-story YouHodler building. Stay tuned for more details in the future.”
