Aavegotchi Rarity Farming SZN 4

What’s the event?

Aavegotchi Rarity Farming Season 4 snapshots begin.

When and where?

Thursday , August 13th in the Gotchiverse.

What’s happening?

Rarity farming is a play-to-earn mechanic designed to reward the most engaged members of the Aavegotchi ecosystem. Rarity Farming rewards players for making their Aavegotchi NFTs as rare as possible, including equipping them with wearable NFTs, petting them twice daily, and participating in XP events. This can lead to GHST token rewards for Aavegotchis across the categories of Rarity, Kinship, and XP.
Thursday sees the first snapshot of Season 4, and with 1.5 million GHST tokens (roughly $2 million USD) up for grabs, they’d better be pretty impressive.
