What is Axie Infinity?

Copy link to section

Axie Infinity is an online game where players battle monsters and can earn cryptocurrency as a reward for their efforts. Axie Infinity Shards, or AXS, is the platform’s native token used to pay those rewards and comes with voting rights that give players a stake in the game’s development.

Based on Pokemon, Axie lets players create their cute monsters and battle either the computer or other players online. The game was launched in 2017 – the token followed in 2020 – but it hit real popularity in 2021 as it launched some new features and by the middle of the year, it boasted more than half a million active players every day.

Its success has been as a result of combining the ability to build unique monsters with cryptocurrency in a ‘play-to-earn’ model. Those unique monsters can also be sold through the Axie marketplace as non-fungible tokens (NFTs). The game is already one of the largest revenue-generating projects in the cryptocurrency space.

How does Axie Infinity work?

Copy link to section

The game is built on the blockchain, which tracks the movement of money between players and where the rules that govern the game are stored in pieces of code known as ‘smart contracts’. You have to have a cryptocurrency wallet to play the game.

Every monster – ‘Axie’ – in the game is an NFT that can be bought, sold, or even loaned to other players. Along with a wallet, you have to deposit Ethereum into your account and buy three monsters to get started, an up-front cost that can run into many hundreds of pounds.

You can then do all sorts of things with the monsters: battle them in teams or individually, create new ones, or simply raise the ones you have. The more you play, the more you can earn AXS tokens and, as these carry voting rights, over time, control of the platform’s future will be spread out among its players.

How is the Axie Infinity network secured?

Copy link to section

The network is secured by the blockchain that it runs on. AXS is an ERC-20 token that launched on the Ethereum network and runs on a proof of stake consensus model.

This means that other users on the network, known as validators, secure and verify all transactions. For their work in securing the network, validators are rewarded with tokens.

What is Axie Infinity used for?

Copy link to section

Axie Infinity is a play-to-earn game that utilises non-fungible tokens (NFTs). Each monster, known as an “Axie,” in the game is a unique NFT that can be bought, sold, or loaned to other players.

Players can participate in battles, breed Axies, and explore a virtual world to increase their collection and earn rewards. With Axie Infinity, players can make money by participating in the game’s ecosystem and owning valuable NFTs.

Why does AXS have value?

Copy link to section

Its value comes from its game and the ability for players to build their collection of one-of-a-kind NFT monsters, known as Axies. Each Axie boasts six body parts, each with its own special battle move, leading to an endless array of possible combinations and strengths.

Each Axie can only be bred a maximum of seven times. To find a suitable mate for their Axie, players can visit the game’s mating hub. Breeding requires both a small fee of 0.005 ETH and Small Love Potion (SLP) tokens.

Online gaming is an increasingly popular endeavour, and Axie Infinity is well-positioned to capitalise on upcoming growth. A play-to-earn gaming model is a new approach which may pay off in the future.

Who created Axie Infinity?

Copy link to section

The creation of Axie Infinity in 2018 resulted from a collaboration between Sky Mavis, a tech-savvy game developer, and co-founders Trung Nguyen and Aleksander Larsen.

Led by Nguyen, who holds a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Software Engineering and has prior experience as a software engineer at Anduin Transactions, the development team behind Axie Infinity primarily operates out of Vietnam. Today, Nguyen serves as the CEO of the platform.

Are there any other ways to invest in Axie Infinity?
