One of the standout moments of the event was the presence of My Neighbor Alice, the multiplayer farm and builder game which provides a platform for collecting and trading NFTs. The NFT company had recently launched its Alpha Season 3 on 27 June 2023. The release introduced a brand-new feature that incentivised players to engage in activities that had received an incredible response to its latest feature garnering over 100,000 unique NFTs crafted by the players during its early launches. This showcases the game’s popularity and vibrant creativity within the My Neighbor Alice community.
The event also celebrated its strong community partnerships, including one with UNTAM3D. UNTAM3D is a collective dedicated to empowering women and non-binary individuals in the Web3 and emerging tech space across the Asia Pacific. Their mission is to decode the world of tech for women to enable their growth, ignite their potential, and elevate their success.
By promoting greater representation, UNTAM3D aims to narrow the gender gap, fostering inclusivity in the tech industry and the world at large.
