BAYC Announced Decentraland Riverboat Casino, Find Out More About the Event& How To Attend
After teasing a Decentrland Metaverse experience last month, The Bored Ape Yacht Club announced the grand opening of the club’s Riverboat Casino.
“Join us Friday, August 6th for the grand opening of the BAYC Riverboat Casino in @Decentraland, The BAYC tweeted. “Festivities begin at 6pm EST and include an epic (play money) poker tournament powered by @DecentralGames.”
After the announcement, bored apes across Twitter were quick to show their excitement for the new club perk.
“So the BAYC Metaverse officially begins,” BAYC member kobrakao tweeted.
Even apes who are not poker players themselves but enjoy the game were excited for the announcement. “I just sent this to my wife cause she loves watching poker , BAYC member Gay Bored Ape tweeted. “We will be there! Can’t wait to hang again!”
The BAYC Riverboat Casino is located at Decentraland coordinates -111,-120, according to the BAYC Riverboat Casino - Grand Opening event page.
For those apes that are unfamiliar with Decentraland, it’s a “decentralized virtual reality platform powered by the Ethereum blockchain. Within the Decentraland platform, users can create, experience, and monetize their content and applications,” according to the sites website.
Bored Apes who are interested in attending will need to set up an account on Decentraland. This can either be a new account or they can play as a guest. Be aware, if this is your first time going to Decentraland, apes may want to set up an account prior to the event in order to customize their avatars or connect a wallet.
While Decentraland has an option to play as a guest (apes who attend playing as guest will still be able to participate in the event), apes may want to link their wallets in order to use the Decentraland BAYC hoodie that was previously airdropped to holders.
