As you’ve all recently seen, the Aavegotchi bridge is alive and kicking and our gotchis have come home to their ancestral land. Rarible has been putting up some great action for us, and we’ve seen some very strong and at times very… surprising… sales. Our ETH ape friends have the mentality to join into the fray, but the gotchiverse is quite hard to get a grasp on unless you start from the very beginning with a portal of your own.
With this in mind, and with the frankly absurd demand for NFT drops on ETH ever since we launched on our little polygon corner somewhere early March, I wanted to put a proposal out there to kill two lickquidators with one stone. We could not only give new ETH frens hands-on experience with our ecosystem and everything it entails, but we could also capture new market shares and greater publicity for our little metaverse right as the Realm presales are hitting us, S2 rarity farming kicks off, and the start of the rental and aarcade system is unveiled to us.
Problem: There is a very large userbase and a lot of liquidity on the Ethereum network, but many of them are unable or unwilling to come over to Polygon, furthermore, it is hard to get “hooked” on Aavegotchi and have that sense of wonder and exploration when all you’re seeing is a dry interface on Opensea or Rarible
Solution: an experimental haunt of a smaller size (between 1000-5000 portals or so), perhaps we name it H3, perhaps we name it an intermediary of sorts. This haunt would follow the STANDARD degen model of first come, first serve, for maximum ape effect and it would TAKE PLACE ON ETHEREUM. Alternatively, GBM style is possible instead of FCFS if the gas fees are surmountable (seems very difficult on ETH unless bids were a single approval TX followed by signing only?)
Suggestions, additions, angry mobs all welcome.
See you in the gotchiverse!
