Dacoco (Alien Worlds)

With over 11 million NFTs, game mechanics across three chains, hundreds of thousands of daily active users, and more than 50 player communities, Alien Worlds has become one of the largest metaverse destinations to date. The Alien Worlds Metaverse was built with the intention of incentivizing users to become owner-creators. This is In large part due to its open blockchain construction, whereby players own game rewards via fungible and non-fungible tokens, verifiable on the blockchain. In this presentation, we share how provable ownership of game assets, along with play to earn functionality, decentralization, and autonomy, empowers member-entrepreneurs to build what is of value to them and to thrive as a result.


Attendees will learn how the blockchain game development process and the new transactional flows created via blockchain tokens, play-to-earn mechanics and decentralization, can be optimized by users and platforms for their own purposes.

Intended Audience

This presentation discusses blockchain technology, blockchain gaming, and Decentralized Autonomous Organizations in accessible ways so those curious about blockchain technology and gaming can gain insights into the innovation it can bring for players, individuals, communities, and businesses. Some knowledge of the aforementioned topics is helpful but not necessary.
