What is Axie Infinity (AXS)?

Axie Infinity (AXS) is an online game that allows players to earn money. Therefore, it can also be called a play-to-earn game. In recent years, games on the blockchain have become extremely popular, and Axie Infinity has become one of the frontrunners in this field.

What is Axie Infinity?

Players can own and breed their own pets, called Axies, within Axie Infinity. These animals come in different colors, shapes, sizes, and names. Axies can therefore be compared to Pokémon creatures, only in this case you really are the owner of the animals.

It's possible to breed new Axies, so you'll eventually have more than one. You can also fight other Axies to earn in-game tokens. In this way, you can earn money from playing Axie Infinity. It is also possible to buy and sell other items, such as Axies, Lands, Items and Bundles in the special marketplace. A brief explanation of what these items are:

  • Axies. These are the animals that players can own within Axie Infinity.
  • Lands. Players also have a piece of land that serves as a "home" for the Axies. On these pieces of land, various items can be placed, or food can be grown that can be used for sale.
  • Items. Within the game various in-game items can be used. These can be sold on the marketplace. Some items are extremely rare, which means they can bring in a lot of money.
  • Bundles. These are groups of items that are bundled together.

DeFi gaming

Axie Infinity is an online game that falls within the DeFi gaming category. These are games that run on the blockchain, and you can make money from them. The game's data is not stored on a central server as it normally is. Instead, this data is stored on the blockchain. This ensures that players have more control over their data, but also actually own the in-game items they own.

In the case of Axie Infinity, the game runs on the Ethereum blockchain. This makes have possible the use of NFTs, also known as non-fungible tokens.

Objects within Axie Infinity are in fact stored as NFTs. This allows items to be distinguished from each other and linked to their owner. This is also exactly what allows players to make money from a play-to-earn game like Axie Infinity.

AXS and SLP tokens

The ecosystem of Axie Infinity has two types of tokens. These are Axie Infinity Shards (AXS) and Smooth Love Potion (SLP). Both tokens can be used by players to play the game.

The AXS token is based on the ERC20 protocol, and a total stock of 270 millions of these is available. These tokens can be used as governance tokens, which means that players can help determine what the future of the platform will look like. Users also have the option to strike the AXS token.

The SLP token is a token that is widely used within the game. You can feed your Axies with it, but also need it when you want to breed new Axies. How do you get the token? By winning battles against other players. When you feed your Axies with SLP tokens, they will perform better and better, and can also create better Axies. There is no total supply of SLP tokens.

If you want to invest in Axie Infinity, the AXS token is suitable for this purpose. There is a limited stock of these, which makes it an ideal token to invest in. Of course, it is wise to always do your own research, and not just follow the advice of others. This way you will learn why an investment goes right or wrong, and you can adjust your strategy accordingly in the future.
