Lausanne, Switzerland – MAY 14, 2022 – FinTech platform YouHodler recently concluded its first Treasure Hunt in the Decentraland metaverse. The experience was created in partnership with MetaDigital, a Swiss Metaverse brand of Arcades Digital, CEO Chistroph Ebell and Kuble AG, CEO Christian Aichhorn.
The three-day “Treasure Hunt” challenged over 1,000 players in an “escape-room style” virtual 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’s blog.
“Overall, the Treasure Hunt was a smashing success.” Said YouHodler Head of Partnerships Vaida Saltenyte. “Over 1,000 participants engaged in the Treasure Hunt from May 2nd – 4th, 2022. As expected, the audience was well balanced, consisting of both YouHodler and Decentraland community members. For three days, the event trended on Decentraland and the NFT wearables were a large part of that.”
Saltenyte also added that due to surging demand, the wearable hoodies ran out quickly but YouHodler later airdropped more directly into client’s wallets.
In total, there were three winners with the winning rules eventually adjusted due to some community feedback and suspected cheating by contestants. The Day 1 winner was disqualified due to a breach of the Terms and Conditions (participated from a restricted country). The runner-up winner for Day 1 did not reply and YouHodler is currently working on giving away the prize.
Day 2 was more positive. The winner of that day performed a total of 63 attempts to perfect their results and managed to win. Commenting on the event, the Day 2 winner — who’s name remains anonymous for security reasons — stated “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 because of the huge $30K reward for the winners, I would have loved to see a bigger building with multiple floors and some more in-depth questions about the platform.”
As a final touch, YouHodler decided to throw in a surprise bonus prize for all new users who participated and also kept the tweet published — one of the tasks during the Treasure Hunt. Those who did that received a $30 MANA welcome reward.
“Overall, the first-ever Treasure Hunt was a ton of fun and the community left lots of positive feedback,” Saltenyte concluded. “For the next one, we will experiment with a longer duration, more challenging tasks, and a bigger YouHodler building with multiple floors. Stay tuned for more details in the future.”
