The use of DeFi, Layer 2 technology and NFTs is catalyzing growth
Cryptocurrencies are a constantly evolving sector And the more active and innovative tokens tend to retain their value and growth potential compared to meme tokens and projects without roadmaps.
As the DeFi sector and non-fungible tokens (NFTs) grew in popularity over the course of 2020, the team started Aavegotchi (GHST), A DeFi enabled collectors project that combines DeFi features with the growing trend of NFT and crypto collectibles.
GHST was launched as a governance token sale by the DAO (Decentralized Autonomous Organization), a DAICO. in which all the funds raised were administered by the community. The platform enables users to collect, combine, and compete with their Aavegotchi in an ever-expanding gaming experience.
Users can also use their GHST tokens on the Aavegotchi platform to generate frens. This allows you to buy raffle tickets for special items or conjure up new Aavegotchi.
