The Million Doge Disco is the ultimate evolution of the Decentralized Dance Party (DDP), an Open-Source Party movement that has been active since the dawn of the blockchain.

We fell in love with Dogecoin and the Doge in late 2013 and immediately dedicated our lives to promoting her teachings, as demonstrated in this classic interview from 2014:

We then hosted Camp Dogecoin at Burning Man in 2014, continuing to interpret and promote her teachings…

(this is a work in progress that will be updated as I have time to do so :)

Over the years, many people have asked if I am the creator of Dogecoin or it is “my coin”. To the former, I say “nope”. To the latter, I now grin and remark “sort of”.

I truly believe that the Doge is a Divine Avatar, the most lovable meme of all time and our best possible means to liberate and unify all of humanity.

Accordingly, I have been the most steadfast and vociferous proponent of Dogecoin and the Doge that I…

It all began in 2014, with the startling realization that: “buying Dogecoin was the modern equivalent of buying War Bonds”.

Back in the day, governments used to sell “war bonds” to finance their various wars. Bearers were repaid with interest after the war was (hopefully) won.

The Decentralized Dance Party gained tremendous online momentum in the wake of the pandemic and is now spearheading a groundbreaking transition back into the physical world with their Global Peace Party on World Peace Weekend.


Vancouver, B.C. — September 15, 2020 — Tom and Gary’s Decentralized Dance Party, known commonly as the “Decentralized Dance Party” or “DDP,” has experienced tremendous interest from fun-seekers worldwide in the wake of COVID-19.

Since quarantine began, the group has hosted highly successful Virtual Decentralized Dance Parties (VDDPs) for the past 23 weeks.

Created 11 years ago in Vancouver, BC, the DDP…

For over a decade, the “Decentralized Dance Party” (or “DDP”) was a giant roaming street Party with no Central audio source and no Central location; created using an FM radio transmitter to broadcast music and voice to hundreds of boomboxes, carried by thousands of participants!

Our ultimate objective was to broadcast a Simultaneous Global Dance Party that would unite the entire world in transcendent celebration and earn us the Nobel Peace Prize for Partying. Seriously.

But then!

With the dawning of the pandemic, we were forced to “Decentralize” the DDP in bold new ways and began experimenting with…

Since the dawn of the pandemic, we’ve been hosting virtual “Decentralized Dance Parties” on Zoom; blending virtual and terrestrial realms to create a series of future-bending hybrid Parties!

Early on, the fabulous folks behind Co-Reality Collective introduced themselves and we immediately recognized them as Cosmic Party Counterparts and began collaborating!

Their “Sparkleverse” Open-Source mapping software creates an Open Party Scaffolding that allows an unlimited number of Zoom Rooms and VR Realms to plug in. It was recently announced that it will be a key component of the Burning Man Multiverse!

It’s still very early days, but this Open-Source…

In a world where full-scale festivals are no longer possible, we must find new, innovative ways to safely connect and elevate Global Party Culture!

Using relatively simple tech hacks, it’s now possible to create a Decentralized network of Party nodes with send-and-receive video connectivity to turn the entire world into a virtual dance floor!

We view this movement as an Essential Service, as many…

Although the pandemic has resulted in unprecedented levels of social isolation, the Decentralized Dance Party (DDP) has been working tirelessly to develop revolutionary new technologies that boost spirits and enhance connection worldwide.

Since March, the DDP has hosted 23 wildly successful mixed-reality DDPs and helped co-create the Sparkleverse, a brand new “Love-Based Social Network” which went live during this year’s Virtual Burning Man.

Now, our sights are set on a Simultaneous Global Dance Party on World Peace Weekend this September 19th!


We are hosting a MASSIVE DDP that will be the greatest step yet towards the creation…
