Blockchain Boogie. The world's first street dance crypto battle is an NYC dance community pop up event that comes with NFTs. Forward-thinking NYC-native dancer, DJ, and developer who goes by Boogiee in the dance world, presents Blockchain Boogie with Raiders of Concrete, and the support of NFTexperiential. Friday, April 23, 2021 (Union Square; 4-7 PM; dance battle 5 PM; runtime 60 min; social distancing and masks required). Blockchain Boogie is a cypher dance battle open to all street dance styles. The grassroots-organized event, livestreamed by Futureisnowexperience, has a relevant educational component and sets a lot of records. It is the world's first street dance battle with: 1. prize in cryptocurrencies; 2. livestreamed to become an NFT; 3. with proof of attendance protocol tokens for attendees. The cypher battle highlights the importance of the history, culture and essence that make the New York City underground street dance scene so incredibly unique, and a worldwide beacon.

Boogiee, who will also be DJing the event along with DJ Phoolish ROC, has been a street dance performer in New York for over a decade and is a passionate blockchain developer. They created Blockchain Boogie to raise awareness on the benefits and multiple applications of blockchain technology. "I just think it's a fun way to introduce dancers to cryptocurrencies and what the blockchain can do for artists and entrepreneurs," Boogiee explains. "There's more than just Bitcoin."

NFTexperiential stepped in to make sure the initiative became a reality when the event was about to be cancelled, bringing livestreaming partners Futureisnowexperience,  as well as the NFT factor into the equation. NFTexperiential works to educate and empower artists to embrace their "NFT-potential", supporting and advocating for initiatives like these. "This is the first "NFT-oriented" street dance battle. It is an amazing community-led initiative, there is potential for strong social impact," says NFTexperiential. "This is what NYC energy is all about. Challenges notwithstanding, the streets of New York are alive and kicking!" The official NFTs of this event will be put up for sale by NFTexperiential and the proceeds will be donated.

An online point of reference is set up for registration, proof of attendance tokens (sponsored by POAP) and a number of options to set up a wallet (links to Metamask, Coinbase, Gemini, and Trust). Registration is free, but contestants must provide their crypto wallet address to sign up. Participants will battle for Ethereum for multiple rounds during a one-hour cypher. They will be judged based on musicality, showmanship, crowd appeal, and nonrepetitive dance movements. The contest judges Jeff Selby (creator of NewStyle Hustle) and DJ P-Funk are respected members of the NYC and international street dance scene.
