Aavegotchi is a DeFi-enabled crypto collectibles game that allows players to stake Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) avatars with interest-generating tokens and interact with the Aavegotchi metaverse. It is a combination of Decentralized Finance (DeFi) and NFTs. Aavegotchis are pixelated ghosts living on the Ethereum blockchain, backed by the ERC-721 standard. To level up their Aavegotchis, players can participate in a variety of activities including mini-games, governance, and meetups. Aavegotchi is governed by AavegotchiDAO that manages all funds generated through the GHST token distribution.

Storing Aavegotchi and other digital assets requires a wallet, but don’t worry: Bitvavo’s hosted wallet allows you to store Aavegotchi without any technical knowledge. Here is a brief overview of the existing wallet options to store your Aavegotchi:
Hosted wallets are wallets where the private keys to your Aavegotchi are managed by a third party such as Bitvavo. Access to your account is protected by a password and other advanced security features. Once you are logged in, you can easily and conveniently manage your Aavegotchi online. Bitvavo offers standard hosted wallets for all digital assets that are offered on the platform.
A software wallet is a program installed on your computer or other device in order to use and manage your Aavegotchi. Using a software wallet gives you full control over your private keys, so you are not dependent on third parties. The risk is that you alone are in charge of the security of your Aavegotchi, and if malicious parties have access to your device, your private keys (and therefore your Aavegotchi) can be stolen.
A hardware wallet is a physical device on which you can store your Aavegotchi offline. It is one of the safest ways to store your Aavegotchi, because the private keys are stored on a separate and offline device. Access to this device is often protected by a password. In many ways, a hardware wallet can be compared to a safe in which your Aavegotchi is stored.
You can use Bitvavo's hosted wallet to easily store, send and receive Aavegotchi. Once you have purchased Aavegotchi on Bitvavo, you can choose to send your Aavegotchi from your Bitvavo wallet to your own software or hardware wallet.
