Aavegotchi Rarity Farming Season 1 Rewards — FINALIZED!

7 min readMar 30, 2021

Farm your share of over 2 million USD worth of GHST rewards over 8 weeks 😍

Rarity Farming Season One officially begins on April 20 (4/20), and the competition is already heating up! With the news of #AavegotchiDAO voting to delay Haunt 2, it is now confirmed that only the 10,000 Haunt 1 Aavegotchis are eligible to compete. That’s assuming all 10,000 Portals are opened and summon Aavegotchis. (Currently, roughly half of all Portals have summoned Aavegotchis!)

True #GotchiGang members know that 40% of all GHST revenue from Portals and Maall Wearables goes directly towards player rewards, and we are excited to announce that the final reward pool for Rarity Farming Season 1 will be 1.4M GHST — over 2 Million USD! 🤯

(View the spreadsheet here 👏)

This is 1 million GHST higher than our original expectations for Rarity Farming SZN 1, so in light of this windfall, we have adjusted the shape of the reward curve, which originally only extended to the top 2000 Aavegotchis.

Aavegotchi is redefining the boundaries of what play-to-earn gaming is, and the message of Rarity Farming Season One is — GotchiGang Gainz! If you own an Aavegotchi, you are probably farming GHST.

Now let’s take a closer look at the final numbers for Rarity Farming Season One.

Rarity Farming SZN 1 TL;DR

Total rewards: 1.4 Million GHST
Season structure: 8 weeks divided into 4 rounds
Begins: Tuesday, April 20th
Competition categories: Rarity / Kinship / XP
Goal: Climb the leaderboards for on-chain snapshots
Top Prize: 100k+ GHST
Looooong tail: Top 5000 gotchis farm each category

Every Aavegotchi can farm!

The successful Haunt 1 launch, with its Ape Tax and all, led to a Rewards Pool that is nearly triple the size of our original, albeit conservative, estimations. 40% of all primary sales revenue are funneled to the Player Rewards Pool, and that has led to a massive 1.4 Million GHST pool, revised upward from the original 500k GHST estimations we shared in January. This 1.4 Million GHST is now locked in and any further GHST entering the Rewards Pool will go toward accumulating an even larger SZN 2 pool for the future.

This much larger scale rewards pool impacts a few of our original plans. The rewards distribution curve, for example, began looking extremely overpowering for the top earners while the tail seemed too short given what’s possible.

A thread dedicated to adjusting the distribution curve was opened up on dao.aavegotchi.com with the community being able to directly inject ideas, suggestions and concerns. These types of threads are invaluable and serve to demonstrate how a DAO can and should be about more than casting votes. A healthy DAO is an organism with many layers of engagement, feedback and thought. In this case, the community directly advised Pixelcraft and provided insights with thoughtful input and some grade-A number crunching (looking at you LetsGoBankless).

The result is a new distribution curve that is undoubtedly fairer, more efficient, and more enticing than its predecessor.

The top earners are farming more GHST than ever before, with a champ having the potential to farm beyond 100,000 GHST! What’s more, the 5000th ranked Aavegotchi in each of the three categories will also farm GHST (the previous model only supported the top 2000).

This is remarkable because Haunt 1 only has 10,000 Portals. Of which, roughly 60% have been opened. At this time, less than 5,000 Aavegotchis have actually been summoned. You know what that means right? As it stands, ALL SUMMONED AAVEGOTCHIS ARE CAPABLE OF FARMING ACROSS ALL THREE CATEGORIES!!!

3 Ways to Earn

To earn, all you need is an Aavegotchi (or two or three) in your wallet. This first season doesn’t have skills-based battles or time trials; you simply need to climb three leaderboards. How well you equip your Aavegotchi, interact with it and engage with the wider community will determine the degree to which you farm GHST.

1. Rarity Score (70%)

Rarity Score is the main competition with 70% of the Rewards Pool GHST allocated to this leaderboard. An Aavegotchi’s rarity score is determined by its:

  • Randomly generated traits
  • Additional points from equipped wearables and sets
  • Final modifications made via leveling up (1 pt. per 3 XP levels)

Climb this chart by opening portals and summoning rare Aavegotchi. Then boost them over the top by matching the right wearables to fit their personalities (check your gotchi’s bell curve). If you can gain enough XP, you can even level up and nudge traits in a rarer direction.

The top ten Rarity Scorers can potentially farm 10k-50k GHST over the 8 week season.

2. Kinship Score (20%)

Kinship Score is more accessible in that even the most common of Aavegotchi are on equal footing. Here the focus is on showing your gotchi some affection. A freshly summoned Aavegotchis starts with a neutral kinship of 50 and you can boost this once every twelve hours via any on-chain interaction with it. However 24 hours of neglect results in a -1 deduction! Climb this chart by petting your Aavegotchi or feeding it rare kinship-boosting potions!

This table shows the total GHST harvest potential over the course of all 4 Kinship rounds.

3. Experience Score (10%)

Experience Score is the final leaderboard and is all about earning the most XP. Outside of some highly collectible XP potions, being active in the community is the way to earning XP. XP rewards are being allocated for participating in core votes on Snapshot, sanctioned online events, and even volunteer work in the Discord. Climb this chart by being active, engaged and adding value to the wider community!

Note that the rewards are weighted from the most on-chain heavy category to the least.

The Experience Score distribution curve is shaped a bit flatter than other categories, providing reasonable rewards across the Top 5000 Aavegotchis

How to win

There’s no one way to win Rarity Farming. It’s the degrees to which you are satisfied and the harvests you reap across multiple categories. Rank in the top 5000 each two weeks and watch your gotchi’s GHST harvest grow. One more time, all you need to do is:

  1. 👻 Get an Aavegotchi
  2. 👔 Dress it
  3. 🤗 Pet it
  4. 🕺Join XP Events
  5. 💰WIN!

What happens if there’s a tie?

In the (very likely) event of a tie, especially in Kinship and Experience categories, the winners will be ordered as follows:

Tie in BRS -> Highest Kinship
Tie in Kinship -> Highest Experience
Tie in XP -> Highest Trait (Per Round)*

*Rarity Farming lasts for eight weeks, and is divided into four rounds. In each round, the deciding Trait will be assigned, in the following order:

Round 1: Energy (NRG)
Round 2: Aggressiveness (AGG)
Round 3: Spookiness (SPK)
Round 4: Brain Size (BRN)

This is a fair, random, onchain way to calculate the winners’ final order, in case a tie does emerge.

I’m just learning about Aavegotchi, do I still have a chance?

Yes, fren! There are many Aavegotchis being sold in the Baazaar, and new Wearables coming out via the Raffle and various airdrops. We’re also hosting several events throughout the Season where you can attend and earn XP for your Aavegotchis. Many or all of the existing Aavegotchis will qualify for Season 1 Rewards, due to the long tail curve. The best time to join is NOW!

Earn some XP for each of your Gotchis by participating in live events throughout April!

XP Events will run through SZN 1 with opportunities to earn XP for all the Gotchis in your wallet.
