Times Square NYE party in Decentraland
Decentralized Metaverse project Decentraland will unveil the virtual reality version of the iconic Times Square via a New Years Eve party that coincides with the timing of the real life celebration in New York city.
The event is called the “MetaFest 2022 NYE Party” and will run until 8:00 am UTC on Jan. 1 in Decentraland’s Estate 4 district. It will feature live music, rooftop VIP lounges, a new tokenized collectibles and wearables drop, live feeds of real world NYE events across the globe, CryptoArt galleries and games.
The virtual reality equivalent of the famous spot at the heart of New York is called “One Times Square,”, with the “one time” pun suggesting that the structure may be dissolved after the party concludes.
