Registration for HiveFest⁵ opened up. Free (till Dec. 7th). Blue man n00bs & branding in VR.

Overwhelmed by the amount of people who actually mentioned in the range of "finally a good reason to obtain a VR headset", last weeks announcement's comments was good for my enthusiasm.
HiveFest 2020

This week I invested in setting up a big Amazon Machine Image for streaming HiveFest and some 3d modelling. It's funny and weird at the same time. As the event happens in Virtual Reality, all is happening in a simulation. (oh my and is our "real life" also a simulation?)

Livestreaming this is not only for documenting purposes but also for those who won't be able to join in AltspaceVR, because no mac/win or headset... This meant setting up a windows computer with OBS streaming software, multiple vantage points, run AltspaceVR a couple of times on 1 machine, circumventing "session" limits of the AltspaceVR software and some other challenges. But its tested and running now.

Conferences badges & wristbands are in!

You can get them once you enter HiveFest with your secret codeword. In order to get your HiveFest access link and registration code, you actually need to register...

As of now, Registration for HiveFest 2020 is open on
The event is free for anyone to attend, but in order to prepare well (as crowds bring challenges for AltspaceVR room duplication and cross-spawning) I urge you to register early. Early, as in now.

If you fail to register before 7th of December a registration fee of 50 HBD is required. If you even then fail until 14th of December a registration fee of 100 HBD is required.

Register for now

Blue n00bs of AltspaceVR

Don't be a blue man n00b

Once you have registered on I urge you to download AltspaceVR instantly. Only through AltspaceVR's apps you can setup your account which you need to access HiveFest when it happens.

Log in to AltspaceVR and change your default avatar, "the blue n00b" into something which either resembles you, or don't, that's up to you. But at least it's recommended to change your avatar so HiveFest won't be the big blue n00b gathering. Your avatar is your virtual reality version of you.

Sponsor and get some nice VR perks

As said, producing this one is significantly less costly then a real life event like HiveFest was past 4 years. However I would love to rake in a little bit of sponsorship / donations to cover some of the costs involved. (I will come up with cost explanation in a HiveDao Proposal soon).

If you go to to register your attendance, on the form you can voluntarily swipe the donation slider. Donations come with some perk-levels which might be fun for some of you:

  • HBD 25++ 🙇‍ 📝 Wall of fame mention in HiveFest world.
  • HBD 75++ 🙇‍ 📝 🌟 Golden hivestar conference badge for you and wall of fame mention.
  • HBD 250++ 🙇‍ 📝 🌟 🏀 Sponsor option: Interactive basketballs with your logo and colors for attendees to play hoops on Hive Court. (+ all other perks)
  • HBD 1000++ 🙇‍ 📝 🌟 🏀 📣 Sponsor option: Sponsorship recognition, banner on-site. (+ all other perks)
  • HBD 5000++ 🙇‍ 📝 🌟 🏀 📣 🌎 Sponsor option: Your own virtual world/stage/booth adjacent to HiveFest. (+ all other perks)

Sponsorships/donations can be HBD/Hive paid to @hivefest. Other (crypto) transfer options can be arranged. Please see the instructions in the Registration Confirmation email.
