A new blockchain-based game has started to gain massive popularity. Introducing, the NFT game called Axie Infinity that runs on $AXS.
Axie Infinity was created back in 2018 by Sky Mavis and is a turn-based RPG game which lets players buy, sell, breed, trade, and even battle different digital pets known as “axies.” These particular axis act as NFTs or non-fungible tokens that have started gaining mainstream popularity.
The main token that Axie Infinity relies on is $AXS or Axie Infinity Shards. To add to the excitement, SLP or Small Love Potion tokens have also been used in the game. The value has equally swelled as well.
How does Axie work?
Axie Infinity is a new adventure-based game that relies on multiple layers of critical tactical skills. The game is a play-to-earn type that is quite similar to Pokemon.
In order to start, players have to make a team of three axies. Players will be given the option of leveling up their axies by playing the Adventure Mode or PVE where, just like any game, they climb the ladder and level up.
Users can farm in-game currencies or SLP going from 1-20 SLP after accomplishing every Ruin depending on their level. Axie owners can also choose to test out their axies by putting them through the Arena Mode which is the game’s PVP.
This is where players battle each other and with every reward, they will get a number of SLPs depending on the player’s MMR. This can be as low as 0 up to 12 SLP a win. This is risky, however, as every loss could bring down the player’s MMR rating so it is important to be careful.
More about $AXS
$AXS is the cryptocurrency that powers the Axie Infinity platform and it is the Ethereum-based digital marketplace for the game. As per CoinBase, AXS hit a record of $23.60 on July 15.
The price can be monitored on Messari. The cryptocurrency was up 700% from its June 22, 2021 price of just $2.36. For those waiting for the next big NFT game, this could already be it as the price and value has significantly increased within just about a month.
NFTs have been stretching the limits of what can be done with blockchain technology. However, when it comes to games, it seems like only the surface has been scratched and there are still a lot more opportunities to be discovered. With Axie Infinity gaining massive popularity, there’s really no telling what’ll happen next.
When engaging in cryptocurrency activities, it is important to make sure the device you are using remains safe. There are countless ways to increase your security aside from good passwords or other forms of hard physical cryptocurrency wallets. There are a bunch of other NFT games out there and whenever engaging into crypto or other blockchain activity, it is important to remain cautious.
