Launch dates confirmed: The Aavegotchi Forge goes live on Feb 22, 2023!
The Aavegotchi Forge is almost ready to go live! With AGIP 61 passing through the AavegotchiDAO, The Forge Team is preparing for an ebic launch that will take Aavegotchi Wearables to the next level with maximum NFT composability, fresh new content, and deflationary mechanics.
Get ready for blacksmithing skills, new Wearable sets, Wearable components, and a whole lot of aavesomeness!
What is The Forge?
The Forge is an innovative new feature on the Aavegotchi protocol conceptualized and developed by the galaxy-brained AavegotchiDAO. With The Forge, Aavegotchi Wearables become composable and deflationary, allowing users to break them down into their base components. The primary purpose of the Forge is to simultaneously avoid Wearable inflation while adding fresh, new Wearables to the Aavegotchi ecosystem.
How it Works
There are two main functions of the Aavegotchi Forge: Smelting and Forging. Smelting allows players to break existing Aavegotchi Wearables down into their base components of Schematics, Cores, Alloy, and, in some cases, Essence. Forging allows players to use these components to create new Wearables.
For detailed information on Forging, Smelting, and the Base Components you can check out The Forge Team’s comprehensive Forge 101 blog post.
What The Forge Means for Aavegotchi
The Forge adds an amazing new element to the Aavegotchi protocol and the Wearables market. The deflationary mechanic allows for players to dress their Aavegotchis in aavesome new Wearables, without diluting the existing Wearable supply. This is especially interesting since Season 5 of Rarity Farming has just begun!
Thes new Wearables should make for some exciting shakeups on the Rarity leaderboard, as players smelt their existing Wearables and subsequently forge new ones.
Asked what the Forge means for the protocol, Dr. Wagmi said:
“The Forge was a massive undertaking as we tackled management of scarcity and new content in NFT gaming. Web3 gaming allows true ownership of your assets which poses a novel set of problems for the asset owners and developers alike. The Forge is the Aavegotchi protocol’s initial step in solving this conundrum through creating healthy value and content loops for a Web3 economy.”
