I shared the idea over on the Aavegotchi DAO and discord, and Jesse responded with interest.
I basically want to have little pixel art assets that correlate with my LP positions so my gotchi can be my character who grows my portfolio garden.
I want to get little visual rewards for locking up and increasing my portfolio size, and I want it to be aavegotchi pixel art integrated.
For those of you who don’t know, Aavegotchi is a gamified pixel art pet NFT with some games and collectable type frameworks around it.
The core of the project is a sink for lended positions in Aave.
The project is about to create a metaverse called REALM, and their project aspirations are to be able to use the Gotchis as Avatars, so you can vote in the GotchiDAO, in a Zelda like 2d, ingame world.
This sort of gamified DAO approach has got me thinking of other use cases for Aavegotchi.
- I want to be able to grow plots in a community garden [DeFi Yield Farming]
- I want to be able to have a co-working space – or even participate in DAO Treasury based DeFi Yield Farming, so I can grow and manage assets in a group of people.
Honeycomb is doing great, and I see room for a correlation // collaboration with Aavegotchi on Polygon [pcomb] – especially with the porting of the Gardens over on Polygon.
I think by outsourcing in partnership – the gamified interface for these 1hive projects, there is room for non-competitive collaboration with Aavegotchi.
I know I’ve heard some Dev interest in forking the Aavegotchi project – and this makes sense, in a way, due to the effectiveness of their idea, and the fact that we have forked Aave.
However, I think I may be able to manage my [Agave - HNY LP] in a pixelated garden patch – or build a co-working clubhouse [DAO Garden] with some pixel art avatars – sooner than later, if 1hive works in partnership with aavegotchi.
I think they appreciate the hard work and DAO community that 1hive represents.
This is my Gotchi, as well as the Gotchi interface.
He’s cute, and has cool collectables, etc. And a bonding score that is really low right now, because I haven’t ‘pet’ my gotchi in a month.
This is because I need more incentive beyond the rarity farming bonding rewards that you get for a high kinship score.
The sub-conscious purpose for these things, is habituation and mind space – meaning, if I’m petting my gotchi every day, I’m more likely to be involved in the community / DAO / to invest in new gotchis, or to acquire collectibles to get better rarity scores – or earn XP by playing games.
However, I’m not really at a place in my life where I care about these things – because I’m more focused on Yield Farming, and DAO Project Development.
But I still think the fundamentals of the aavegotchi project are super solid, and I think the team’s marketing and community formation are amazing, and I like the artwork, and the idea of having a web3 avatar.
The incentives for me to manage my xcomb farming rewards every day are already present, and my incentives for participating / contributing meaningfully to the 1hive discourse / discord or metagame discord with meaningful contributions or insights are facilitated by source cred.
And the time that I’m investing in creating a dAO / marketing guild centers around me building up my own web3 compatible art business.
So, basically, I think if there is interest in collaborative connection on part of the Aavegotchi team / DAO and the 1hive team / dao – there could be some really fun interoperability here, which would be a net benefit to people involved, and would also be non-competitive.
It may even be possible to plug agave lended tokens into Aavegotchi as well – rather than just forking a whole new instance.
I doubt that it would make much of an impact into the aave market share – but if the agave community wanted to participate in agave gotchis – they may be able to do that as well.
Seems like an area worthy of investigation or discussion – and maybe something can be started for the honeycomb polygon launch if both teams are open.
