TOP SECRET: Gotchus Alchemica Tokenomics Report

Background

The Aavegotchi Gotchiverse introduces four unique Play to Earn tokens that players can earn by active collecting and passive harvesting. These four tokens, known as the Gotchus Alchemica, exist in limited quantities throughout the Gotchiverse, and play a significant role in crafting Installations and building up your parcel.

What exactly are REALM parcels?

REALM is the official name of the ERC721 NFT that represents ownership of a plot of land in the Gotchiverse.

What are Gotchus Alchemica?

Gotchus Alchemica, colloquially known as Alchemica, are the four elements of the Gotchiverse — FUD, FOMO, ALPHA, and KEK. They are native to the Gotchiverse, and act as raw materials for everything built within.

How do I get Gotchus Alchemica?

Alchemica can be harvested from REALM parcels via Harvesters and Reservoir installations, which mint new tokens and deplete the total amount of Alchemica in the REALM parcel.

What is the total supply of each Gotchus Alchemica within the Gotchiverse?

FUD

We have conducted thorough surveys of the Gotchiverse land mass, and they were not surprised to discover that FUD is the most abundant of all Gotchus Alchemica in the Gotchiverse.

FOMO

Extensive research has shown that the next most abundant Alchemica in the Gotchiverse is FOMO, at a max supply of 50,000,000,000, or fifty billion. This makes sense, given the fact that Aavegotchis themselves are the spirits of yield farmers who FOMO’d in a bit too hard and got liquidated.

ALPHA

Alpha is far scarcer than FUD and FOMO, but still abundant, with a total supply of 25,000,000,000, or twenty-five billion. Notably, ALPHA concentrations are higher than normal inside the Citaadel. The GEO team has concluded that while ALPHA may be rare, it is still possible to find significant deposits with enough digging.

KEK

Of all the Gotchus Alchemica, KEK is by far the rarest, with a total supply of only 10,000,000,000, or ten billion. The GEO team has concluded: when you find something that can make you KEK, hold on to it, fren.

How much Alchemica can I expect to find in my REALM parcel?

The GEO team has come up with accurate estimations of the Alchemica concentration for each REALM parcel within the Gotchiverse. These estimations are based on the three general parcel sizes: humble, reasonably-sized, and spacious.

Does it mean anything if my parcel is adjacent to Alchemica?

Yes, indeed! Though we cannot estimate the exact amount of Alchemica underneath a parcel, it’s simple arithmetic to calculate how much is next to it.

  • 1000 FUD
  • 500 FOMO
  • 250 ALPHA
  • 100 KEK

Over how long a period will these Alchemica be distributed?

The Gotchiverse is an expansive world with numerous regions to visit and explore. By our estimations, we expect the discovery process to spread over a period of at least five years, spread out over multiple Acts.

What will the Alchemica be used for?

According to the Litepaper published by the Summoners, Alchemica will be used for crafting Installations to augment the REALM parcel, as well as Aesthetica for decorating parcels, and other special edition NFTs. Installations have in-game utility helping Gotchis to farm, socialize, or even defend their parcels.

  • 40% to The Great Portal, the source of all energy within the Gotchiverse. The Great Portal will accumulate a reserve of Alchemica over time, and any amount excess to this will be recycled back throughout the Gotchiverse via alchemical channeling and other rewarding activities.
  • 40% to the Summoners, who willed the Gotchiverse into existence. The Summoners are humble and wise and will do everything in their power to promote life within the Gotchiverse.
  • 15% to the AavegotchiDAO, the stewards and caretakers of the Gotchiverse. They make the Gotchiverse a place worth living in!

The Great Replenishings

During our research, we did discover an anomaly that we must disclose to our readers.

Thank you for reading our report. We will continue to investigate this strange new world and provide in-depth reports back to you.

Good luck, fren.
