HiveFest: more names, Hive.Fund proposal, Splinterlands, 1,000 HIVE give away!

in #hivefestlast year

One more week till HiveFest! VR World building and finetuning is in full effect. AltspaceVR upgraded their software, leaving many worlds and 3D objects rendered useless. Virtual E-waste. I first thought this would be a simple re-iteration of last year, but no no no. Everything had to be redone. Totally fine because it's a great practice for next week, getting re-acquainted with the software and battling motion-sickness :)

I recommend you to upgrade your AltspaceVR software, (or install it) right away and also RSVP for HiveFest on the AltspaceVR website to get it to trending ASAP:

  1. Register for so you will be able to get a shiny conference badge during the event
  2. RSVP for HiveFest Day 1 on AltspaceVR
  3. RSVP for HiveFest Day 2 on AltspaceVR


Did you see some HiveFest ads on Twitter yet? Thanks to some of the Hive marketing fund, we can run some ads! Pretty epic, 100,000 impressions each day! site is updated with new names taking the stage next weekend:

Expect more than 30 people and projects taking the stage, with newly added: @themarkymark, @detlev, @qwoyn, @rollie1212, @brianoflondon, @eddiespino, @uwelang, @smooms, @risingstargame, @howweroll, @jacuzzi, @ddrfr33k, @thebeardflex, @hivetrending and @jeanlucsr! Stay tuned for the final schedule early next week.

HiveFest Hive.Fund Proposal is live (Prop. No. 195)

Yes HiveFest is, just like last year, lean & mean. No food, no venues, not so much tech and transport. Yet we still spend time getting things ready, next to some, very real (?) fiat expenditures :P. We rent tech in the cloud, a place to physical be connected to the internets, even pay for some virtual venue templates, next to quite some time to prepare all this.

proposal 195

A proposal for the amount of 10,000 HBD is awaiting your review right here, containing the full budget and explanation. It would be great if you can find time to weigh your opinion about it. Potential payout starts already next week during HiveFest and only runs for 4 days for a simple & quick pay-out. Checkout proposal 195 for 2021.

Splinterlands is sponsoring HiveFest with a significant donation!

Number one dApp of the world, which casually happens to be hosted on Hive, almost since it's inception, gave a serious donation for this years event. Thank you team Splinterlands! Also Blocktrades an 3Speak are continued major supporters next to countless individuals, whom will be on the wall of fame at the event, and you will easily spot them wearing a different badge of honour :P

See you there!

Can't wait for my first #hivefest 🎉

Very excited about attending Hive Fest!


Done and done! Will write a post to see if we can get a few more people to sign up and join :-) Can't wait!

I will also come by and bring !PIZZA and !BEER with me


So excited in attending hivefest6! I even wrote a tutorial for linux users especially ubuntu 20.04 if they want to join the party. Here's my card on it and I have RSVP-d.


I think it’s really high time I reviewed Oculus today if it will work in the new AltSpaceVR.
See you there! 😎

yes, you need to run some updates on the Quest to get things going!

Quest is already running, the main challenge right now I have is a multimedia console in AltspaceVR because there are errors and I can't stream videos from YT. I'll try to use the projector today...

Sounds fun and a great line up - I fear I have to skip / reject our slot though, various reasons I can outline one-on-one @roelandp - thanks for offering though. We are working hard on the game and our team is a bit stretched as some members are on vacation and the two of us left are also busy with the other jobs.

@xykorlz is excited with this event

!PIZZA thanks

Voted on the proposal! Booked my spot early! Had an excellent time last year and look forward to having even more fun this time around! Updated my AltSpace VR today instead of last minute.... and Tweeted out to spread the word! Thanks for getting all this together and best of luck to everyone trying to win a part of that Hive giveaway!


Great, I can't wait for my first HiveFest. I'm really looking forward to it 🤩

This is going to be my first #HiveFest, and my first experience in the metaverse, better with #hive than with Meta...

My share:


I've never used AltspaceVR before but managed to make it work thanks to all the help provided.
Here you are my attendee card:

maybe we will meet there. nice!

Hope we will. Take into account Friday is a working day for me and I'm also working on saturday morning so I will connect when possible after that.

Have a good week ahead.

Cant want for the party to get started 😍 !!

congratulations to all the participants, I hope you keep us informed of the events

Looking forward to this & registered a while back —just hope I can figure out how to use the tech when the time comes (I’m a bit clueless that way).


Cheers from Florida ✌🏼

Is there a Dicord where I can get some Altspace help? I was able to use it last year, apart from some things like the badges not working, but when I try it now everything is really dark in the app. I'm running it on Ubuntu just in 2d mode. I reinstalled it, but no different.


Altspace has a discord yes:

Cheers. I'll ask in there

Unfortunately not. I am wonder if it is a graphics driver issue, so that may be trickier to fix. I will keep on looking. Thanks.
