This is not going to be your usual “online” conference.
Philippine Digital Asset Exchange (PDAX), in partnership with Yield Guild Games Alerts (YGG Alerts) and De La Salle University (DLSU) will kickoff the De La Salle Interactive Entertainment and Gaming Innovation & Talent Expo (DigitX) in a first-of-its-kind virtual showcase to take place in the Decentraland metaverse this October 3 to October 9.
DigitX is a talent and innovation showcase, featuring webinars, exhibits, and guided tours which will take place in a completely virtual environment. Using the Decentraland platform, participants can create their own personal avatars and engage with other attendees in exploring a 3-D virtual rendition of the DLSU campus. Student works from DLSU’s first-ever graduating batch of BS Interactive Entertainment, Major in Game Design will also be exhibited within the Archer’s Building in the virtual campus.
For visitors to make the most out of their campus visit and field trip, PDAX has created a special promo for $MANA, Decentraland’s currency and an NFT shirt for visitors’ Decentraland avatar.
DigitX is a glimpse into the fast-emerging world of NFTs and the Metaverse, which is ushering in the age of Web 3.0 for Filipinos. As blockchain-based technologies, they help create not only greater financial opportunities, but are also aimed at creating more inclusive virtual spaces for everyone and to take learning and communication to an entirely new level in the near future.
For DigitX, DLSU makes for an ideal venue being one of the handful of campuses in the country offering degrees in game design. Metaverse technology has its roots in video gaming, from the concept of virtual reality, to programming and hardware development.
The event will also feature a 3-day series of talks from some of the most notable names in the crypto industry in the country, covering a range of topics from the emerging applications of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and the implications of cryptocurrencies and Web3 technology on the future of the Philippine digital landscape.
