For this week’s Guild Spotlight we’re entering the Gotchiverse with Gotchi Maafia! Let’s dive in and see what the GM faamily is all about, and learn what they have planned for the Gotchiverse.
Q. Can you please give a brief introduction about your guild and team?
A. We are an organic OG Aavegotchi guild, originally built in the shadows of the Gotchiverse in D28 behind closed doors. The first members were mainly guildless, well known OG Gotchigang members selected for their loyalty, skillset, and passion for Aavegotchi and helping others.
Q. What’s the story behind the Gotchi Maafia name?
A. It just felt like the perfect name to encapsulate our secretive ways of operation, but at the same time constantly expanding in members/business ventures within the Gotchiverse and having a family vibe in the guild.
Plus we gamble and have a good time, quite often…
Q. How large is the guild right now? Are you actively expanding?
A. Right now our discord holds 600+ members. As of now we have around 60 Official Maafia members with Aavegotchi assets, and over 500 scholars (or prospects and associates as we like to call them). Now that the doors are opened to the public, anyone who would like to join the faamily are asked to complete specific tasks and post proof to climb up the ranks. The higher your guild rank is, the more guild sensitive information that is unlocked, such as; Guild Wearables, Meeting spots, Amazing hangout recaps, TA, Listing bots, and much moar.
Q. Why did you decide to join the Aavegotchi ecosystem
A. Many of our OG members had the luxury of being in the community from the beginning and were able to witness the amazing work ethics, vision, and community inclusion brought by Pixelcraft and surrounding community builders. So, we made the easy decision to build a sub community/guild in the Aavegotchi ecosystem, and help expand in any way we can.
Q. If you could describe Aavegotchi in three words, what would they be?
A. Innovaative, Inevitaable, Faamily
Q. What aspect or feature of the Gotchiverse are you most excited for?
A. Gameplay, PVP, PVE, Quests, Lickquidators, Great Portal battles, Art releases. You name it, we’re there.
Q. As a guild, what’s the most difficult thing you’ve ever encountered?
A. We’ve had some guild members go through some hard times, but being such a tight-knit guild we have come together to support each other on multiple occasions. There is nothing we have encountered that was too difficult to overcome.
Q. What are the Gotchi Maafia’s goals for the Gotchiverse?
A. - Make a profit and be sure that everyone in the family eats!
- Preach the Gotchi Gospel and help anyone when needed
- Oversee & control illicit agreements of the Gotchiverse
- Establishing order over community disputes by containing conflict
- Maintaining secrecy of guild objectives, plans, and discussions by following Omertà
- Providing tools/services/dapps and working toward the vision and future of the community, ecosystem and protocol
- Expansion, partnerships, and effective gameplay strategy
Q. Where do you see NFT Gaming in the next year?
A. NFT gaming will continue to grow, as long as we all continue to build and show the world why owning your assets with utility and interoperability is the future.
Q. What qualities does your Guild look for in a scholar? Are there any requirements in terms of time and hardware that they must meet?
A. We have currently halted our Scholar onboarding process until there is more than channeling for them to do. However we still let people in and educate them on Aavegotchi and let them reserve their spot for future openings. Our existing scholars attend spillover events and channel/empty reservoirs daily.
Q. What do you like most about Aavegotchi?
A. It might be a shorter list if you ask what we like the least :D
- Heart felt community, family vibes
- Hardworking/transparent team with a vision
- Cute pixel ghosts with aavesome gear
- Completely on-chain
- Forever growing/innovating
- Stable economy
- Safe environment
- Amazing artists/builders
and the list goes on...
Q. Is guild decision making decentralized, or do leaders/high ranking members make the decisions?
A. We are built on a hierarchy that holds weight in group decisions. Members are asked to complete certain tasks for the guild to level up their Guild Ranking. The higher your rank, the more access to guild sensitive information you unlock for yourself. The highest ranked guild members (The Plugs) are those in charge of the guild treasury multisig.
Q. How would you describe your guild’s Gotchiverse strategy in just one word?
Q. Any big guild events planned?
A. We’ve hosted a weekly poker game for over 7 months now; “Gotchi Maafia’s KekSus Hold’em.” We give away Aavegotchi NFTs to the winners, and have given away over 2500 GHST in prizes already! We charge 25 DAI which gets you access to all four Friday games during each month, with prizes for every game! We have a fun time with frens and talk aavegotchi while trying to beat each other out for the prizes. Anyone and everyone is welcome! We are also hosting a free poker game with prizes, and a bounce gate party in D28 very soon.
We have much, much moar planned as well… who knows what will emerge from the shadows…
