Gaming Redefined: Advancing Crypto-Backed, Play-to-Earn Games

Advances in the cryptocurrency industry know no bounds, as blockchain technology is currently disrupting the global gaming industry. The past year has ushered in a number of innovative protocols in the cryptocurrency world that seeks to incentivize online gamers. While protocols adopt different models in their Play-to-Earn product offerings, Axie Infinity boasts one of the most sustainable ones.

Axie Infinity is a Pokémon-inspired game where anyone can earn tokens through skilled gameplay and contributions to the ecosystem. The platform, built atop the Ethereum blockchain, enables users to collect, breed, and battle in-game pets known as Axies. Axie Infinity has generated over 13,000 ETH in revenue thus far, and is currently ranked as the best Ethereum-based game by daily, weekly, and monthly active users.

The Axie Infinity world is powered by its native token, AXS, which is what players earn as a reward for their gaming actions that keep the ecosystem functional. Smooth Love Potions (SLP) are used to breed the Axies ,and while this token is not sold by the Axie Infinity protocol, there are ways to earn it in game.

Axie Infinity is well structured with a strong utility attached to its native AXS governance token. AXS price has surged by more than 61,000% in the past 10 months since its launch, and it printed an All-Time High (ATH) of $82.36 earlier in August. The token’s popularity and performance showcase its potential to usher in a new GameFi ecosystem.
