NFT gaming protocol Aavegotchi is working with Polygon to launch a gaming-optimized blockchain called Gotchichain in Q3.

Gotchichain will use Polygon’s supernet to create a customized blockchain designed for mass-scale adoption for gaming players. Aavegotchi is already deployed on Polygon, but having its own supernet will give players faster transaction times and minimal gas fees, according to a blogpost.

Aavegotchi’s governance token GHST will be the gas token for all transactions on Gotchichain, the announcement said. GHST briefly spiked 5% on the announcement but was trading around $1.21 at press time, down over 10% in 24 hours.

Earlier Wednesday, a separate crypto gaming project also announced it was working with Polygon supernets, one sign of how Polygon is betting big on gaming technology.

Gotchichain is “going to be a game changer for reducing friction and bringing more people on-chain,” said the founder of gaming development firm Pixelcraft Studios, Jesse Johnson told CoinDesk.
