March was another massive month for GotchiGang! Let's check out the shipping logs.
GHST Bonding Curve Closed
The GHST Bonding Curve is no moar! In a historic moment for the Aavegotchi Protocol, the AavegotchiDAO closed the Curve with an Aragon-based vote on ETH mainnet. A second vote to distribute the Curve's DAI was also passed and the ~30M DAI collateral backing the Curve has been distributed per the terms of AGIP 65. GHST is now a free floating token!

Aavegotchi on DataDash
Aavegotchi was featured on DataDash! Host Nicholas Merten shared the alpha on the GHST bonding curve closure with his 500k+ subscribers. He called the bonding curve closure “one of the biggest [ecosystem changes] that we have seen in practically any NFT project when it comes to its protocol token.” We’d have to agree!
