Decentral Games and Coingecko partner to launch NFTs

Decentral Games announced that it had entered a strategic partnership with CoinGecko, the world’s largest independent cryptocurrency data aggregator. The partnership will see the two entities work together to launch an exclusive limited edition ICE Poker skin NFT and host a metaverse drop party.

According to the press release shared with Coinjournal, the CoinGecko skin allows users to play ICE Poker and enter Sit-n-Go tournaments for free. Decentral Games added that players could also wear this skin around the Decentraland metaverse and become the iconic CoinGecko Gecko.

This latest cryptocurrency news comes after 10,000 ICE Poker skin NFTs were launched through CoinGecko’s loyalty program, the Candy Reward store, on Wednesday, December 7. 

The ICE Poker skin didn’t last long, as the Congecko community redeemed the entire 10,000 skins in less than 24 hours. While commenting on this latest development, Miles Anthony, CEO of Decentral Games, said;

“It’s been amazing to see the unprecedented interest in the exclusive CoinGecko x ICE Poker Tournament wearable airdrop — all 10,000 were claimed in less than 24 hours! I’m looking forward to seeing Geckos at the ICE Poker tables and welcoming the CoinGecko community into Decentral Games and the metaverse.”

Thanks to this partnership, Decentral Games and Coingecko said they would be releasing another 10,000 ICE Poker skins through the Candy Reward store today, December 12. All CoinGecko ICE Poker skins will be airdropped on Friday, December 16, Decentral Games added.
