Introducing Gotchichain: Aavegotchi X Polygon Supernets


Table of Contents

The Aavegotchi Protocol has already reached new heights this year as we continue to ship our way through 2023. The Year of the Gotchi is off to a hot start having hit major milestones like the release of the Aavegotchi Forge and the Closure of the GHST Bonding Curve.

Now we’re preparing to launch Gotchichain, a dedicated blockchain for all things Aavegotchi powered by Polygon Supernets!

Polygon Supernets

Supernets are permissioned offshoots of the Polygon POS network where any user can transact, but only certain developers can deploy contracts. This partnership will allow us to utilize Polygon's Supernets technology to create a blockchain optimized for gaming, with faster transaction times, lower gas fees, and superior scalability. In other words, Gotchichain will be the perfect launching ground for Aavegotchi-themed games and dapps.

"We are thrilled to partner with Aavegotchi to bring gaming to the next level," said Hamzah Khan, Head of DeFi at Polygon." Polygon's Supernets technology will enable Aavegotchi to create a blockchain optimized for gaming, providing users with the ultimate NFT gaming experience."

A Blockchain for All Things Aavegotchi

Gotchichain will be the dedicated blockchain for all things Aavegotchi. Lower fees and faster confirmation times will make it the ultimate user experience for blockchain gamers, and the perfect building ground for developers and game studios.

"We are excited to partner with Polygon and leverage its Supernets technology to create a gaming blockchain that will provide a superior user experience for our community," said Jesse Johnson, COO of Pixelcraft Studios.

On Gotchichain, GHST (Aavegotchi’s eco-governance token) will be the gas token for all transactions. All Aavegotchi assets will continue to be minted on Polygon POS, but can be bridged over to Gotchichain to be played in the new, gaming-friendly environment.

Game Developers Program

To incentivize and inspire new devs and game studios to build on Gotchichain we’re planning to fund a game developer’s program! Interested in getting involved? Join the GotchiGang on Discord at, and subscribe to the blog. More information is coming soon!

Wen Launch?

We’re targeting an early Q3 2023 launch for Gotchichain. We believe this partnership with Polygon will benefit not only Aavegotchi, but blockchain gaming as a whole. We’re proud to be one of the first gaming protocols to utilize Polygon’s Supernets and we expect many others to follow suit in the coming months and years!

"We are excited about the potential of this partnership and the opportunities it will bring to our community," said Johnson. "We believe that by utilizing Polygon's Supernets technology, we can create a gaming blockchain that will revolutionize the blockchain gaming industry and provide the ultimate experience for players and developers worldwide."
