HiveFest⁶ Meetings Contest

in HiveFest2 years ago (edited)

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 least
    1 minutes
    is 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

AllClick to display all the participants (this is the default view)
FriendsClick to display people you've already met
To Meet themClick 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!

There are:

Attendee(s)Meeting value
1 gold20 points
5 silver15 points
10 bronze10 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.

Check your contest ranking

You will be able to check your ranking in real-time. To do so, click on the special HiveFest⁶ ranking button on the top right of the HiveBuzz website:

This will bring you to a dedicated page where the actual score of each participant will be displayed:

Note: Points collected by meeting mystery people will not be displayed while the contest is running. They will be added after the contest has ended.

Contest Global Rules

Contests point are granted when 2 mutual scans match and are attributed in badge scan order.

If user1 scan QR code of user2 before user2 scan QR code of user1, user1 will receive the MSC point before user2

In the event of a tie between players, the winner will be the one who first got the greatest amount of contest points.

Good luck and enjoy HiveFest⁶

Make at least one meeting with us and you will see that your 100% ratio will no more be 😉

Entrare para vivir la experiencia.

I love the contest. I'm going to bookmark this post to study it well.

Good contest, and I'm looking forward to meeting as many Hive Fest-goers as possible, so this contest just makes it more fun!

Oh! Too bad, I missed this already


Nice contest idea - the 2D users of a Mac are handicapped though - hardly anything working in that App for Mac.

Unfortunately, we got a lot of feedback from users not able to "scan" badges.
Hopefully the next iteration of HiveFest will be in real life or AltspaceVR will improve their software.

Congratulations @hivebuzz! You received a personal badge!

Thank you for your participation in the HiveFest⁶ Meetings Contest.

We truly hope you enjoyed HiveFest⁶ and it's been our pleasure to welcome you in the AltspaceVR world.

See you next year!
