We know many of you want to attend the Wyoming Blockchain Stampede and WyoHackathon events in person like we have in pre-COVID times. So do we!
We have been hopeful this could happen, so we planned for both in person and virtual possibilities.
Alas, we must call it at this time as a VIRTUAL ONLY event. We cannot know with enough certainty whether UW will be under any COVID gathering restrictions where attendees do not exceed the ability to provide the physical spacing required by state health orders nor exceed the maximum attendees allowed together at an indoor function.
Therefore, so you can plan acccordingly, all the events will be inside our VIRTUAL REALITY Event software platform. You get to make an avatar, and in a game-like manner attend all the events. If you have a VR headset you can use it! If not, a simple HTML5 browser will allow you to get around the event space. You can engage with others, join conversations and enjoy the events.
If you are planning to compete in WyoHackathon, we will be sending the Discord channel links directly to you. We will broadcast into a VR hackathon space for others to see as well. We will be sending the VR event links in following emails.
Thanks for your Understanding!
Caitlin Long, Chairman
Tyler Lindholm, Executive Emcee
RIch Kopcho, Executive Producer
