Gotchi Lending Updates
We have updated the Gotchi Lending contracts so that borrowers can end the agreement before time has expired. We’ve also reduced the maximum lending period to 30 days. Additionally, we’ve pushed an update that automatically transfers all in-game Alchemica from a borrowed Gotchi directly to the lender and borrower's wallets when the borrow period ends, even if the borrower did not make it to the Vortex! These updates will make for a smoother Gotchi lending experience for all.
The Gotchiverse is a human-first game, meaning that automation and scripting is not acceptable. We have made tremendous efforts to auto-detect and auto-kick bots from the Gotchiverse and will continue to do so to ensure a fair and friendly experience for all.
April was a legendary month for GotchiGang, and we plan to make May just as memorable!
A Preview of May:
- GotchiGang Social Mode: May 2nd-17th
- Gotchiverse Land Release: May 18th
- Moar Gotchiverse Alpha
- Much Moar
