By Dapp.com | Dapp.com | 28 Sep 2020



There is a few months of boom in the DeFi sector. Now it seems NFT is taking over and become the focus of the blockchain community’s discussion. Today, we are going to look through those hot NFT projects that connect closely with DeFi, or build up their own economy by lauching tokens.



NFT + DeFi



Token: RARI

Price (12pm UTC0): $7.73

Rarible is a decentralized NFT marketplace. If you are a content creator, you are able to mint your creative work into fungible or non-fungible tokens and sell it. If you are a collector, you can purchase digital collectibles in Rarible marketplace, secured with blockchain.

In July, Rarible issued its governance token RARI. The total $25,000,000 RARI token is divided as follow: 2% airdrop to Rarible users and 8% going to all NFT holders, 30% of the supply will go to investors and the Rarible team, and the rest 60% will be accessible through what the team called “Marketplace Liquidity Mining.” 



Every Sunday 75,000 tokens are distributed to counterparties who made a sale or a purchase on Rarible during the week: Both buyers and sellers equally receive 50% of the distributed amount.

The token can be used to vote, moderate the hot artworks picked by the platform and more governance issues. Rarible is gradually becoming an actual Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO), as the platform users will be the ones in charge of all the decisions for the platform. So that RARI token is an essential part of the platform.


Token: GHST

Price (12pm UTC0): $0.702821

Aavegotchi is a new collectible game created by Aave, the leading DeFi project. This new game is a mixture of the DeFi and NFT elements: Aavegotchis are NFTs staked with interest-generating aTokens. In other words, they are DeFi-powered NFTs.

GHST token is the ecosystem token of Aavegotchi game. You’ll need to spend GHST to buy in-game items. It’s also the governance token of Aavegotchi, and thus token holders can vote in the AavegotchiDAO. 




GHST Token launched on Mainnet on 14th Sept, starting with 2 phase: the first is a pre-sale of 500,000 GHST at 0.1 DAI each, used to bootstrap liquidity; and second, the launch of the GHST token bonding curve, a continuous Automated Market Maker (AMM) that mints and burns GHST on demand, starting at 0.2 DAI / GHST.


GRAP Finance (Crypto Wine)

Token: GRAP

Price (12pm UTC0): $0.151148

The GRAP token issued by GRAP Finance is a cryptocurrency with a supply that adjusts every day according to demand in the marketplace. Each day the Grap rebase operation compares the 24hr Volume-weighted-avg Grap price to the target price. If the price is above the target, supply increases. If the price is below the target, supply decreases.

Then what’s its connection with NFTs?

The project introduces an experiment called “Winemaking”. It’s a kind of NFT mining. Crypto Wine is obtained by pledging GRAP liquid currency pairs for lossless investment.



Each player in the pledge pool can randomly get an airdrop distribution, and the pledge will provide you with brewing points, and each draw costs 100 points. Users can freely trade or collect after drawing Crypto Wine. 10,000 pieces of Crypto Wine in 50 different designs were released on 10th Sept, 



Token: ARTE
