Aavegotchi Development Roadmap V2

6 min readApr 28, 2021

The next phase of Aavegotchi is beginning!

Wow frens! It’s been more than six months since Aavegotchi GHST token launched on Ethereum, heralding the beginning of this odyssey we call Aavegotchi.

In this time, we’ve accomplished so much. Here are some of the highlights:

  • ✅ Launched GHST token via bonding curve DAICO
  • ✅ GHST listed on almost all major global exchanges
  • ✅ Created staking contracts with more than 10M TVL
  • ✅ Held four raffles for fair, transparent distribution of NFTs
  • ✅ Successfully migrated GHST from Ethereum to Polygon
  • ✅ Held six DAO votes, all which reached and far exceeded the quorums
  • ✅ Held Portal sale on Polygon, sold out within minutes

…and much moar!

Aavegotchi social medias are also on fire! The Aavegotchi Discord has more than 10,000 members, even after an intense bot-armageddon that removed over 600 known bots and scammers.

Aavegotchi Twitter recently surpassed 30K followers, and our Telegram presence has held strong at over 10,000, including the main Aavegotchi Fam and various official language groups.

…but this is just the beginning, frens.

After months of discussion, planning, and ideation, we are excited to finally unveil the new, multi-year roadmap for Aavegotchi.

It’s impossible to predict the future, and there’ll be many things that happen that are out of the scope of this roadmap (fun detours ftw!) but these are the Big Ticket Items that will help Aavegotchi cross the chasm and gain massive adoption.

So without further ado, here is the Aavegotchi Multiyear Roadmap!

(View the Aavegotchi Roadmap V2 deck here 👀)

【PHASE ONE: Incubation (Q2 2021 — Q4 2021)】

Strategy: Establish Aavegotchi as a popular game for crypto natives

Milestones: 25K MAU / 5K DAU

「Q2 2021」

Polygon to Ethereum NFT Bridges

Aavegotchi was launched on Polygon, but the majority of crypto activity is still on Ethereum. We’ll be launching a bridge back to Ethereum that supports ERC721s (Aavegotchis and Portals) and ERC1155s (Wearables, Consumables, and Tickets).

Social media integrations (Link Aavegotchi via Discord/Twitter)

What if you could automatically update your social media profile pictures whenever you equip a wearable? That’s just one idea we’re working on with social media integrations. Linking a Discord to an Aavegotchi, voting and earning XP within Discord, and earning XP for displaying your Gotchi on Twitter are all in the pipeline!

Final thoughts

We believe it’s best to under-promise and over-deliver, which is why there are many things not included on this roadmap.

Aavegotchi is a collective effort between Pixelcraft, AavegotchiDAO, and the larger community of Gotchi and GHST holders. With hard work, lots of patience, and mutual respect and understanding, we can make Aavegotchi the success it is destined to be!
