Why Aavegotchi Chose Polygon

Our DeFi-powered collectibles game needed a Layer 2 solution. Here’s why we chose Polygon (formerly Matic). When we launched our eco-governance token on Ethereum in September, it was the peak of the first DeFi season. Prices were rising, degens were aping, and morale was peaking. But under the ebullient surface, a storm was brewing… Gas prices had spiked to levels not seen since 2017 and the famous CryptoKitties launch. Smaller players, unable to afford the expensive transactions, were being pushed to the sidelines as large holders cashed in on all the latest yield farming opportunities.
