Land Sale #2
Our 2nd Gotchiverse land sale took place early in December. The action kicked off with a launch party in Discord which had over 400 GotchiGang members in attendance! The 2nd land sale following the GBM Bid-to-Earn Auction format was a tremendous success, with thousands of participants purchasing land in the Eastern area of the Gotchi Citaadel. The auction had over $40M in total volume and paid out more than $1.1M in Bid-to-Earn rewards. Click here to browse the Gotchiverse map.
First Gotchiverse Stress Test
We held our first evar Gotchiverse stress test event in December! More than 1000 GotchiGang members joined a limited preview of the Gotchiverse with their Aavegotchis. Players explored and participated in a Gotchus Alchemica gathering minigame and got some incredible aalpha. The stress test was a massive success that provided our dev team with valuable data as we move towards the official launch of the Gotchiverse in Q1 of 2022. Follow us on Twitter for more info and updates on the Gotchiverse.
Land Raffle #2
The second Gotchiverse Land Raffle took place with 3,000 parcels up for grabs on the Eastern side of the Citaadel this time around.

How to Earn Alchemica in the Gotchiverse

There will be three main ways to acquire Gotchus Alchemica once the Gotchiverse goes live: farming from underground, exploring the surface, and channeling from above. There is a way for everyone, whether you’re a farmer, warrior, or mage, to earn in the Gotchiverse! For more information click here to read our blog post.

Final rewards have been sent out to every Gotchi who placed on the leaderboards. In total, season 2 paid out 2M GHST in rewards across three categories!

AavegotchiDAO End of Year XP Extravaganza
Keeping the reputation as the World’s most active DAO, we launched EIGHT new proposals for the AavegotchiDAO to vote on for an End of Year XP Extravaganza! This means eight opportunities to participate in governance and earn XP for your GotchiGang! There were two COREprops and six SIGprops that made up the extravaganza. The AGIPI6 COREprop, proposed to stake 100k GHST to generate minigame rewards, and the AGIP17 COREprop proposed adding voting power to REALM parcels. The six SIGprops fell under Gotchiverse Patch v0.1. These included a couple of areas that the dev team thought should be adjusted before the game is released. AavegotchiDAO made their voice heard, passing seven of the eight proposals. To read about the proposals see our blog post here.
