What is Axie Infinity? Maybe a fun NFT game?
Notice: This article is for informational and educational purposes only, and you should not take it as financial advice.

Axie Infinity is developing Sky Mavis, a technology-focused gaming studio founded in early 2018. The entire Axie temptation is inspired by Pokemon and Tamagotchi games. Axie Infinity is classified as an NFT game that allows individuals to make money by playing the game while breeding, fighting and trading Axie creatures in the marketplace.

Axie Infinity should function as a fun and educational way to connect the world with blockchain. People who knew Crypto Kitties perfected the idea and created a magical world of blockchain games.

All artists can access all the art tools and Axie data, allowing community developers to build their own tools and experiences to further enhance the Axie Infinity universe. Which means that the more you contribute to the Axie Universe, the more rewards you will reap. How does it work?

Axie Infinity is working on blockchain technology. However, instead of mining new blocks in the chain (solving complex mathematical problems that create an accepted hash), Axie Infinity provides a “play and earn” structure. "Players can make money by competing in PVP battles, making axes and selling them in the market, or collecting rare axes." Keep in mind that making sweet axes requires sweet love potions (SLP). SLPs, like any other cryptocurrency, are unstable. At the time of writing, the price is 7.53 PHP. You can buy SLPs through Uniswap or Binance.

According to Axie, players can earn a management token, AKSS, which is a real part of the Axie universe because it has built-in management rights and tax sharing. Rewarding players based on effort and skill, not on their victories. How do I get started?

You can find the game on its official Axie Infinity website. However, you can’t just download the game and play it right away. You need bills and wallets, because it includes cryptocurrency. Below is a step-by-step guide:

Download a digital wallet like MetaMask and transfer some ETH to it. You can buy ETH from Coinbase, Binance or LocalCryptos, depending on your country.

Download Ron’s wallet.

Switch ETH to Ronin using Ronin’s transaction bridge.

Get at least 3 Axies from the Axie market.

Log in with MetaMask and set an email address / password.

Download the app. Click on “Play Now” in the upper right corner. How to play and make money in Axie Infinity?

“Axie Infinity is like a Pokemon mixed with Hearthstone, adorable Pokemon monsters, and a turn-based card game from Hearthstone.” So, players use the cards to “order” what their Axie will do in that move. Each Axie has four cards randomly selected for each battle, and in order to play those cards, a certain amount of energy must be expended. So if you have 4 units of energy, you can play any card as long as it matches your energy capacity. Normally other games would allow players to choose which target to attack, but the combat system in Axie Infinity attacks random targets, usually hitting the target closest to that Axie.

“What happens when I lose/win? When you lose in PVP (Player Vs. Player) battles, you also lose Matchmaking Rating (MMR). If you win, you get MMR and Smooth Love Potions (SLP)." Don’t worry, the loss won’t result in a reduction in SLP, will it make it easier? To further explain this, the amount of SLP won per win will depend on your MMR. Check the list below to see how much SLP is obtained for each phase of MMR.

  • Less than 800 = SLP not acquired
  • 800-999 = 1 SLP per win
  • 1000-1099 = 3 SLP per win
  • 1100-1299 = 7 SLP per win
  • 1300-1499 = 8 SLP per win
  • 1500-1799 = 9 SLP per win
  • 1800-1999 = 10 SLP per win
  • 2000-2199 = 11 SLP per win
  • 2200+ = 12 SLP per win

Players earn through SLP, which is given through daily tasks or PVP matches. You may want to switch directly to PVP matches because SLPs are given more often there, but it is advisable to make the most of the given Axie. Performing daily tasks also shares SLP and EXP for your Axie-s, so a healthy balance must be given to both the PVP and PVE modes in the game.

3 Axis are needed to get started. becase of that people don’t invest so often in Meta Axie’s are prices. The targets of Axie are:

Axie Plant - which acts as a reservoir, Beast Akie - for DPS and Fish Akie serves to unblock. If you are worried about spending for this game, there is a permanent Manager to Scholar structure people use.

There are people who have Axie from the first days, even when they were on the rise and cheap. However, someone who has 20 Axie’s lends to other people because they can’t use them all at once.

Managers and scientists appear here. Managers are individuals who have the means to lend to Axie players, and those players who have borrowed Axie are called scientists. The division between them is usually 60% for a scientist and 40% for a manager. Scientists earn more because they play the game. As soon as scientists and managers make the cut, it’s up to the scientist to sell or keep Axie until the price goes up. It was mentioned earlier that breeding is possible with the help of SLP, but scientists cannot do that; their job is to complete daily tasks, fight in PVP matches and win SLPs.

There are approximately 140,000 Axie’s globally. The price starts at $1, but the most expensive Axie ever sold cost 300 ETH, which is about $1.5 million, which means the Axie sells pretty well.
