Land Sale #2 Dates Announced

The second Gotchiverse Land Sale began Thursday, December 2nd at 3pm UTC and ends Sunday, December 5th at 3pm UTC. Up for grabs this time around are 7,000 parcels in the Alpha-rich eastern portion of the Citaadel. As always, the sale will utilize the GBM Bid-to-Earn auction model allowing participants to earn GHST for being outbid by other users. All you need to participate are GHST tokens on Polygon Network, a web 3 wallet like Metamask, and gotchiverse.io in your browser’s URL.

Following the auction, an additional 3,000 REALM parcels will be available via a Chainlink VRF powered raffle, so be sure to stake your GHST and earn as many FRENS as possible! For moar information see our blog post here.

100% On-Chain Gotchi Lending Details Released

One of the biggest dilemmas that NFT games face is how to scale their player base to the levels of “traditional” games. To solve this, Aavegotchi introduced 100% on-chain Gotchi Lending. Keeping the entire process on-chain removes the human element and the middleman from the widely popular scholarship model and replaces it with a truly trustless system. Gotchi Lending will allow Guilds and individual Gotchi owners to passively earn with their Aavegotchis. The lender and renter agree to the terms of the rental including fee, split of Alchemica, and duration of rental. After the rental period concludes, the Alchemica is automatically split and the Gotchi is returned to its owner. For all the details on Gotchi Lending click here to read our blog post.

First Gotchiverse Land Raffle

The First Gotchiverse Land Raffle took place in early November. Up for grabs in the Raffle were 4,000 REALM parcels within the Citaadel. Over 400 GotchiGang members joined us live in the Aavegotchi Discord for an XP event celebrating the closing of the Raffle. Once it officially ended, they collectively kneeled to the aaltar of Chainlink VRF in hopes that the random number generator would grant them a prize!

Welcome Ready Player DAO

Welcome Crypto Gaming United (CGU)

In November we welcomed Crypto Gaming United (CGU) to the Gotchiverse as an official REALM partner. CGU’s investment encompasses multiple levels of the Aavegotchi ecosystem including REALM parcels, Aavegotchis, and Wearables. As an official REALM Partner they will also receive their own partner-sized parcel. For more details on the partnership, click here to read CGU’s announcement blog post.

Rarity Farming SZN 2 Continued

Rarity Farming SZN 2 continued on with snapshots for rounds 2 and 3 taken during November. During each snapshot over 11,000 Gotchis across three categories received 500,000 GHST ($1.1M). In total 1M GHST ($2.2M) was paid out in Rarity Farming rewards during November. The last Snapshot for Rarity Farming SZN 2 takes place on Tuesday, December 7th at 2pm UTC.

Aavegotchi at CoinGecko’s GeckoCon

GotchiGang was stronk at CoinGecko’s GeckoCon! The 3-day NFT conference featured a special presentation of the Gotchiverse hosted by lead summoner gldnXross. Team members Gravy, Big Flex, Moon, and Mauvis spent time hanging out in the Aavegotchi themed lounge chatting with Gotchi veterans and newcomers alike. If you missed GeckoCon, be sure to subscribe to our YouTube as we’ll be uploading more Gotchiverse content soon.

Minigame XP Event

Pixelcraft Studios Dev Highlights

You can now list your REALM parcels in the Aavegotchi Baazaar! To do this go to the “My REALM” page, approve the Aavegotchi contracts to list your parcels, and then click “List in Baazaar.” REALM parcels can be filtered by address, token ID, alchemica, district, and size. Finding your dream REALM parcel just got easier! Click here to browse the REALM Baazaar listings now.

A new browse page has been added to the Auction DApp. You can now explore the entire Citaadel and see which district each parcel resides in. The new page also allows you to easily visualize the location of parcels you currently own. As you browse, be on the lookout for Gotchiverse easter eggs. You never know what you might find frens! Click here to explore the new browse page.

The FRENS Task Force’s first adjustment of FRENS emissions has been implemented. FRENS emissions for GHST-QUICK, GHST-USDC, and GHST-WETH are lower than before. This is because these pairs (especially GHST-QUICK) were out of sync with their targeted rates set by the community and were causing unnecessary FRENS inflation. Now that this first step has been completed, GotchiGang can look forward to more accurate FRENS rates and additional pools such as GHST-MATIC being added to the menu. Click here to see the adjusted FRENS emission rates.

The Aavegotchi UI has been translated to support Japanese! This is now our seventh language offering including English, Chinese Simplified, Russian, Spanish, Vietnamese, and German. We are working hard to add support for as many languages as possible! If you’d like to get involved and help us translate, please contact @TadasAnd in our Discord Server!
