"The most popular crypto game. It features “fierce, fantasy pets that you can battle & collect while earning crypto.”"
"Axie Infinity initially launched in 2018 as a traditional online game but gained notoriety with the addition of the AXS token into the Axie ecosystem in November of 2020."
Audits & Exploits
- Will have a community treasury which gets part of the fees (19-11-2020). Still being built (20-7-2021):
"In early 2021, the Community Treasury will go live and begin to receive revenues generated by Axie Infinity as well as a portion of staking rewards. This treasury will be governed by AXS stakers once the network has become sufficiently decentralized."
- 270,000,000 total amount of tokens. From Binance Research (26-10-2020):
|Binance Launchpad Sale||11.00% of the total token supply|
|Private Sale||4.00% of the total token supply|
|Play to Earn||20.00% of the total token supply|
|Staking Rewards||29.00% of the total token supply|
|Team||21.00% of the total token supply|
|Advisors||7.00% of the total token supply|
|Ecosystem Fund||8.00% of the total token supply|
"The tokens will not only have governance functions but also fee-sharing features where proceeds will go into a Community Treasury."
- From their website (20-7-2021):
"AXS holders will be able to claim rewards if they stake their tokens, play the game, and participate in key governance votes. Players will also be able to earn $AXS when they play various games within the Axie Infinity Universe and through user generated content initiatives."
"Axie Infinity Shards (AXS) are the governance tokens behind the Axie Infinity platform, while Smooth Love Potions (SLP) are the utility token."
"AXS is by far the most concentrated token per bridged chain out of the top tokens, with AXS locked in Ronin making up 56% of its circulating supply!"
- Whitepaper can be found here.
- Code can be viewed here.
- Built on: Ethereum, but announced (24-12-2020) its own layer two blockchain called Ronin (RON) to avoid Ethereum’s low throughput.
How it works
"AXS is released through the ecosystem fund, play-to-earn as a reward for winning tournaments, and in the future through staking. Smooth Love Potions, on the other hand, are uncapped and are distributed based on user engagement. A few ways to generate SLP on the Axie Infinity platform include winning matches in the Arena and Adventure Mode, winning tournaments with prize rewards, and having other users interact with your land. Smooth Love Potions, on the other hand, are uncapped and are distributed based on user engagement.
Users can expect to receive anywhere from one to eight SLP for each win they get in the Arena against other players or in adventure mode for completing new levels. In order to win more matches (and thus earn more tokens), users look to enhance their Axies’ skill sets and genetic makeup through breeding. Users on the platform can breed Axies using Smooth Love Potions (SLP) given to them as a reward for winning battles in-game or bought on exchanges. Once a user has bred Axies, they are given an egg which takes five days to mature. Upon maturation, users can use the new Axie in Arena or Adventure Mode to earn more SLP, breed the Axie (as long as it isn’t bred with a direct relative), or sell the Axie on the Axie Marketplace. The ability for Axies to reproduce to yield more desirable traits has led some Axies to be more valuable than others, with the most valuable Axies fetching hundreds of thousands of dollars at auction.
The most valuable Axies are known as the “Origin Axies”, the original 4,088 Axies that were released at the start of the game and are marked with the Origin Axie tag. These Axies serve as a status symbol within the game, similar to holding a piece of limited edition sports memorabilia. 1,375 of the 4,088 Origin Axie supply was dedicated to in-game prizes and future promotions and were stashed for later use. These unreleased Axies were given the title “Axie Origin Coins” (AOC) and can be exchanged 5:1 for Origin Axies. At the time of writing, 1,237 AOC remains in the Axie Deployer to be released over time, according to Bloxy, equivalent to about 247 Origin Axies. Within these Origin Axies, a distinct group of roughly 30% is given the additional tag of “Mystic Axies,” which are the most valuable characters due to their rare genetic makeup and skill set, which can not be inherited. These Mystic traits are the only traits in the game that can be upgraded to ‘Legendary’ skills, making them even more powerful in battle than other Axies. Some Axies can have more than one Mystic trait, making them even rarer and thus more valuable to users. In addition to the ‘Mystic’ trait, Axies can more than one Mystic trait, making them even rarer. "
- Launched the AXS staking system, and unveiled their latest progress on Battles V2 and Ronin DEX (10-2021).
- Not live yet (20-7-2021). Went live (see above). AXS holders have $2.5B staked in Axie Infinity in the first two weeks.
"Ronin mainnet uses Proof-of-Authority. PoA is a modified version of PoS and validators on PoA are usually less than 25. In the early stage of the Ronin Network, Sky Mavis will have sole discretion around validators. Therefore, the team has recruited an all-star cast of partners from the traditional gaming, crypto, and NFT space to serve as validators of the network such as Binance, Unisoft, Animoca, Nonfungible.com, Dapp.com"
"French gaming giant Ubisoft is the inaugural validator on the Ethereum sidechain. Besides Ubisoft, the list of validators includes leading cryptocurrency exchange Binance, NFT data provider NonFungible.com, gaming company Animoca Brands, and investment firm Sparq."
- Ronin went live on mainnet (1-2-2021). A RON token for Ronin got teased on 13-10-2021, shortly after Sky Mavis raised 152m in private investment, hinting that RON is probably their way of returning money to their investors.

Their Other Projects
- Axie Infinity has their own marketplace (4-11-2021):
"Axie Infinity has launched an automated market maker called Katana for its sidechain Ronin, and it had 25,000 people interact with it less than 10 hours into its existence, according to Jiho Zirlin, co-founder of the team that built the game. There is already $115M in assets locked into Katana."

"With over 6,000 on-chain monthly active users, Axie Infinity is now the most-used game on Ethereum. MAUs have doubled in the past 6 weeks, with growth driven by players from developing economies such as Indonesia, the Philippines, and Venezuela. Axie demonstrates how the nature of work is evolving; work and play are merging in this digital-first playground/economic laboratory. MAUs spiked by 62% during the week of September 24th which coincided with Delphi Digital’s acquisition of rare Mystic Axies.
From September 13th to October 13th, the Axie NFT marketplace processed 3931.64 ETH volume (~$1.5m USD) as compared to 462.36 ETH volume during the prior one month period. This represented an 850% monthly increase in volume, spurred by increased interest in Mystic and Origin Axies. The marketplace contract was interacted with by 3,540 unique addresses, an increase of 185.4% over the prior month. The Axie marketplace has a 4.25% fee, translating into a revenue of 167.09 ETH. In the future, marketplace fees will go to a community pool governed by the yet to be released Axie governance token."
"“We’ve overtaken CryptoKitties by quite a lot,” co-founder Jeffrey Zirlin said in an interview. Axie Infinity is currently the only Ethereum-based NFT project with over 10,000 monthly active users, according to a press statement. The data site DappRadar shows about 2,500 users in the last 24 hours, making it currently the most popular game on Ethereum."
- From this thread (17-7-2021):
"With over half a million daily active users (DAU) and ~60% coming from the #Philippines, @AxieInfinity is exploding. To put this into perspective, around the end of July 2020, just before I first wrote about it, Axie’s DAU was below 500."
- From this thread (19-7-2021):
"April: $670k rev May: $3M June: $12.2M July (18 days in): $79.1M. It's also the leading NFT Marketplace by volume over the past 1, 7, and 30 days."
- From this thread (27-9-2021):
"Is on pace to generate ~$1.4B in 2021 revenue, up from ~$80M in 2020. @SkyMavisHQ, studio behind Axie, is 3 years old w/ 61 employees making it arguably the fastest growing & most capital efficient game studio."
- From Unchained (2-1-2022):
"According to journalist Collin Wu, data from Nansen shows that daily active addresses on Axie are down more than 70% from its all-time high in July. (To be fair, the data also shows that Axie Infinity has over 300,000 daily active addresses and ranks as the third most used dapp in crypto on DappRadar.)
Axie Infinity has yet to crack $2 million in daily revenue since December 7th, according to data from Token Terminal. This comes after generating over $2 million in revenue every day between July 4, 2021, and December 7, 2021. In fact, over the past 180 days, Axie Infinity has averaged daily revenue of over $6 million, marking December as a severe outlier."
