In line with play-to-earn nonfungible token (NFT) protocol Aavegotchi, on March 11, the entity closed the bonding curve defining the alternate fee between its Aavegotchi (GHST) token and the Da (DAI) U.S. dollar-pegged stablecoin. The identical day, DAI misplaced its U.S. greenback peg as a result of ongoing fallout from the collapse of Silicon Valley Financial institution and the Circle-issued USD Coin (USDC) depegging. USDC’s depeg was brought on by $3.3 billion in stablecoin collateral deposits caught within the now-defunct Silicon Valley Financial institution.
In an announcement to Cointelegraph, Nigel Carlos, the chief advertising and marketing officer of Pixelcraft Studios, defined that the group voted at 2 am UTC right now to finish a two-and-a-half-year contract sale of its native GHST token and “derisk from DAI.“ Carlos said:
“The vote closed a wise contract (bonding curve) that supplied liquidity for the minting and burning of GHST, the Aavegotchi ecosystem’s base forex and governance token that has a market cap above $76.6 million and a complete provide of 54.6 million. Which was certain to DAI and has DAI treasury within the sensible contract.“
In line with Carlos, GHST is now a hard and fast provide token and the $33 million in DAI tokens that had been spent to mint GHST within the contract is “deliberate to go towards creating the gaming protocol’s ecosystem.“ GHST is described as an “entry ticket” into Aavegotchi. Customers can use the token to buy NFT portals, wearables and consumables inside the Aavegotchi sport, stake to farm rewards, and take part in decentralized autonomous group (DAO) governance. The Aavegotchi bonding curve was created on Sept. 14, 2020, with a gap value of 0.2 DAI per GHST.
When customers buy GHST by way of DAI, the bonding curve sensible contract — powered by Aragon — ensures new GHST tokens are minted and vice versa. Nevertheless, when a GHST token is bought, every subsequent purchaser must pay a barely increased value for every token, resulting in GHST having the next market cap than its DAI reserve.
In what was primarily a multi-year token sale, the protocol has obtained a complete of 30.3 million DAI. Builders first proposed in January that the DAI funds ought to be distributed for protocol liquidity (20%), the Aavegotchi DAO (40%) and its guardian Pixelcraft Studios (40%).

Although now not linked, the proceeds obtained from the token sale suffered a fabric loss as a result of DAI depegging occasion.
