Axie Infinity was launched in March 2018 as a play-to-earn (P2E) video game platform. Inspired by Pokemon game series, its game allows players to purchase digital pets called “Axies” in the form of NFTs. Each Axie is unique. Gamers can use them in battles against other players, kept as collectibles, or traded for digital pets.

As an incentive, players are rewarded with SLP (Small Love Potion) tokens. These can be used to breed new Axies or exchanged with other Ethereum tokens, including with Axie Infinity’s native token AXS.

The P2E gaming platform has over 2.8 million daily active players and is experiencing strong growth on the back of the interest rise around GameFi platforms.

To further boost the adoption and sale of NFTs on the platform, Axie Infinity plans to launch a free-to-play feature called “starter monsters”. These “monsters” will allow new users to experience the game before making their first investment. The update is expected to be rolled out at the end of Q1, 2022.

With all these developments, it sure looks like Axie Infinity’s game plan is set to work out.
