NFT game collectible, Aavegotchi decides to migrate to Matic Network from Ethereum owing to its high fees. According to a recent tweet, Aavegotchi stated that they are shifting to the Matic Network. Aavegotchi is a trading game that compares the Tamagotchi line of toys from the 1990s. Contrary to their real-world counterparts, Aavegotchi’s also hold value in the form of staked tokens and wearables.
The team initially intended to launch the game on Ethereum in the first week of January 2021. Nevertheless, high fees became a problem. To deviate from that problem, the team decided to proceed to the Matic Network after a Discord community vote. The officials stated Matic Network as the ideal choice given its value for apps that rely on non-fungible tokens.
Matic Network to facilitate low transactions costs for Aavegotchi
According to the reports, Matic will support the team to accomplish high transaction throughput and meager transaction fees. Moreover, multiple users reacted optimistically to the news given the current rise in Ethereum’s fees. On Sunday, the gas prices surged to an average of $10.20 per transaction, as the token price swelled past $1,000 to reach new yearly highs.
The project is also amongst various Ethereum-powered games, preferring Matic as a scaling solution before Eth2’s launch. A collectible card game backing Ethereum-based in-game items, SkyWeaver, declared that it would be establishing its open-beta version on the same network on Sunday. As mentioned above, ETH gas fees surged to over 400 gwei (about $10), which the Aavegotchi team stated that it reportedly surpassed its acceptable threshold.
Aavegotchi is not the only cryptocurrency collectible game that chose to drive to a layer two scaling solution. Axie Infinity declared its layer two blockchains dubbed Ronin to evade Ethereum’s low throughput. Elsewhere, OpenSea, one of the biggest NFT marketplaces, is all set to migrate to Matic. Future scalability improvements from Ethereum 2.0 could settle this problem. Moreover, migration is a feasible solution for developers.
