AGIP 52 to launch Rarity Farming Season 5 passed with massive support by AavegotchiDAO just a few weeks ago. Another exciting season of the Aavegotchi protocol’s original play-to-earn mechanism is upon us frens!

Rarity Farming FAQ

What is Rarity Farming?

Rarity farming is a play-to-earn mechanic that is designed to reward the most engaged members of the Aavegotchi ecosystem. Rarity Farming rewards players for making their Aavegotchi NFTs as rare as possible. Equipping them with Wearable NFTs, petting them twice daily, and participating in XP events can lead to GHST token rewards for Aavegotchis across the categories of Rarity, Kinship, and XP.

When does it start?

Season Five  starts on Tuesday, January 31st, with the first official Snapshot (and GHST payout) two weeks later, on Tuesday, February 14th.

How much GHST is up for grabs?

This time around 1.5 million GHST (roughly $2 million USD) is up for grabs during the eight-week Rarity Farming period.

How to participate?

To participate in Rarity Farming Season 5 you just need to own an Aavegotchi. Alternatively you can borrow one from a player that is offering a split on GHST earned during the borrowing period with Gotchi Lending.

Rarity Farming Season 5 Cheat Sheet

AavegotchiDAO Funded

The most active DAO in the world has once again stepped up to the plate. Not only did the proposal for Rarity Farming SZN 5 pass with ease, but this time around player rewards will be fully funded by the AavegotchiDAO!

Payout Allocations

There have been no major changes to Rarity, Kinship, or XP systems since Rarity Farming Season 4. As such, this season will have the same payout percentages to each category.

GHST rewards will be allocated as follows:

Rarity (70%)

Kinship (20%)

XP (10%)

Three Ways to Win


Rarity is the main rewards pool with 70% of player rewards allocated to this leaderboard. An Aavegotchi’s rarity score is determined based on a number of factors including:

  • Randomly generated traits
  • Points earned from equipping Wearables and Wearable sets
  • Changes to trait scores made possible by leveling up
  • Changes to trait scores made possible by the aging mechanic

To climb this leaderboard, either purchase or summon the rarest Aavegotchi you can, then continue to boost their rarity using the right combination of Wearables and Wearable sets.


Climbing the kinship is less capital intensive than rarity. To increase your Aavegotchi’s kinship simply pet it twice a day (once every 12 hours) or feed it kinship potions. Each time you pet your Aavegotchi its kinship score will increase by one. It’s also important to note that for each 24-hour period that passes without petting your Aavegotchi, its kinship score will decrease by one. To climb this leaderboard, make sure you interact with your GotchiGang every 12 hours!


XP (Experience Points) is the final leaderboard which allows anyone with an internet connection the ability to earn XP on their Aavegotchi’s behalf. Players can earn XP by voting in the AavegotchiDAO, attending community events, participating in minigame leaderboard competitions, and by drinking XP potions. To climb this leaderboard, stay active in the Aavegotchi community and keep an eye on our social media platforms so you know how and when you can earn XP!

Structure of Season 5

As with Seasons 1-4, Season 5 will take place over an eight week period that includes four, two week rounds. At the end of each round on-chain snapshots of the leaderboards are taken.

After each snapshot, rewards are allocated and an announcement will be made once all GHST is distributed. Aavegotchi NFTs have the ability to hold GHST token balances inside of them, which means rewards can be viewed and withdrawn by visiting your Aavegotchi’s “pocket” interface at app.aavegotchi.com.

After one snapshot is taken, the next round immediately begins and lasts for another two week period, repeating like this until the conclusion of the fourth and final round.

Born to Farm
