Scaling AavegotchiDAO


  • Should there be and what does a second Haunt look like?
  • Are Kinship potions too OP?
  • Should Gotchis be bulk-pet, or individually caressed?
    …and many moar!
  • Consensus over control — We should aim for the largest possible community consensus, versus having a small group of players controlling the majority of decisions.
  • Adoption over entitlement — We should remember our end goal of making Aavegotchi into a game that can cross the chasm and convert “non-crypto people’’ into players. If Aavegotchi becomes a niche game with only a few thousand players, we have failed.
  • Future-oriented over present (or past)-oriented — We should orient ourselves to maximize our growth in the future, instead of maximizing value in the present. It is inevitable that mistakes will be made, but we should trust in ourselves that they can be corrected in the future.

AavegotchiDAO 1.5 and Gradual Decentralization


  • No large community schisms.
  • High voter turnout.
  • High voter enjoyment.
  1. Signal Proposal — A proposal that anyone can post to the Community tab on These votes are non-binding, but if quorum is achieved, the proposal will automatically be upgraded into a binding Core Proposal, as defined below.
  2. Core Proposal — A proposal that Pixelcraft puts forward, with options based on Signal Proposals that reached or nearly reached quorum. These votes are binding and are eligible for XP rewards to participants.

How a Signal Proposal Becomes a Core Proposal

  1. A Signal Proposal is posted to the Community tab of Snapshot by an author. In order to be upgraded to a Core Proposal, the proposal must pass with a quorum reaching 20% of circulating GHST eligible to vote on Polygon at time of proposal creation (viewable in the Matic Bridge), minus the GHST in the following addresses:
  • Rarity Farming Rewards: 0x27DF5C6dcd360f372e23d5e63645eC0072D0C098
  • DAO Treasury: 0xb208f8BB431f580CC4b216826AFfB128cd1431aB
  • Burned GHST: 0xFFfFfFffFFfffFFfFFfFFFFFffFFFffffFfFFFfF

Template for a Signal Proposal

  • Author + GotchiID
  • Link to the matching Discourse thread (Proposals without significant discussion in the forum will be automatically removed from Snapshot)
  • Summary (include rationale, timeline, goals and any key performance indicators) Copy/paste proposals of existing proposals will be removed while proposals with similar but distinct variations are permitted to exist side by side.
  • Effect
  • Highlight end goal and benefits
  • Acknowledge potential risks or unintended consequences
  • Any alternative paths (Plan B, Plan C, etc)
  • EDIT (3–18–2021): The end time of a proposal should not be longer than 30 days from its starting time, to ensure that only active proposals are displayed on Snapshot Community board.

3 Types of Core Proposals

  • A proposal to introduce a cosmetic feature to the game, not the Aavegotchi itself.
  • A proposal for a marketing strategy.
  • A proposal to introduce a new game item.
  • A proposal involving the allocation of XP to some item or event.
  • A proposal to change something about an Aavegotchi that does not affect its rarity score.
  • A proposal for a new Haunt.
  • A proposal for changing something about Aavegotchis that affects its rarity score

Vote Differentials

  • 2 Options — 10% VD
  • 3 Options — 15% VD
  • 4 Options — 20% VD


Why 20% Quorum for Signal Proposals?

Why Two Votes?
