Non-fungible-token gaming protocol Aavegotchi is working with Polygon to launch a blockchain designed for gamers called Gotchichain in the third quarter.

Gotchichain will use Polygon’s "supernet" to create a customized blockchain designed for mass-scale adoption for gamers. Aavegotchi is already deployed on the Polygon platform, but having a supernet will give players faster transaction times and minimal gas fees, according to a blog post.

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 fell back to $1.21 at press time, down over 10% in the past 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,” Jesse Johnson, founder of gaming development firm Pixelcraft Studios, said.
