To get the ball going regarding how to drop items:
A raffle where instead of tickets you lock your GHST like you lock your tickets based on the item price.
You want a chance to get a rare item? lock 100 ghost. Legendary? 300 ghost. Just like a raffle except we use pure GHST tokens instead of tickets.
You select which rarity type of items you would like a chance at with your temporary raffle numbers.
You stake 500 GHST for 5 rare items, you get 5 rare raffle numbers.
The difference; You get the ghst tokens back for each item you dont get (win 1 rare item, it eats 100 GHST and you get the rest of your 400 GHST back)
All great ideas, I’m heavily leaning on just make it as simple as possible, but I really like the auction proposal and we absolutely need the auction for portals and godlikes, so it’s best to have it early.
So I am creating the proposal in favor of the hybrid raffle+auction system where first 50% of the items will be available via raffle and 50% via the auction.
And for the future think of conditions on how to stop whales and bots. Remember; you can’t add limits per address because we can create as many addresses as we want, we have infinite addresses.
Discuss before we move this onto game mechanics and create a proposal for it.
- Another option could be to emphasize the need to be present in real time (ala Top Shot). If you’re there, you get a special link/code/NFT ticket that allows you to make a purchase. If you don’t buy it on time then the item is available to the next person in queue.
- Captchas on the website B) A special captcha where you have to order 4 images in the correct order to tell a coherent story.
- Hybrid raffle+auction system. In the final 16 hours, the auction should require a significant price increase +5% to stop scalper bots from putting +1$ at the very end.
As for the Maall shop it does look like it got botted smart contract style. Even if it didn’t there’s still too many people barging in like it’s a black friday sale.
So all these wallets were created 40 minutes ago and have 1-2 shades, 1 shirt and 1 ghst in them each Aavegotchi Baazaar 0x351347268Faf538974bAA98dbF08dB27b99f0549 - Mainnet Explorer Aavegotchi Baazaar 0x54A7E197d722b4eF1e094309E60BBC0207f8D1cd - Mainnet Explorer Aavegotchi Baazaar 0xC8bdD7A7F82be32161de71a9E22F4f6E6092a11A - Mainnet Explorer Aavegotchi Baazaar 0x40b299DB4554291D8A706a956626C126Efd49e62 - Mainnet Explorer Aavegotchi Baazaar 0x3E2Be8A0dDdBB4C9A9C015616D2380DD31DcB264 - Mainnet Explorer Aavegotchi Baazaar
This is most likely the smart contract that was used.
