What is Axis Infinity?

Axie Infinity is a play-to-earn card game built on the Ronin sidechain of the Ethereum blockchain by Vietnamese studio Sky Mavis. We collect a team of pets (Axi) in the game and participate in PVE or PVP battles. The battles occur in a 3v3 format, where we take turns setting up a combination of Aksik’s abilities and attacking the enemy. Full review on Axie Infinity; this is the Classic version of the game.

But what is Axie Infinity: Origin, the gameplay is the same game about fighting for our Axies, but it has key differences that make it more community-friendly. Namely:

  • Free pets. In the classic version, we first need to buy ourselves 3 Aksikov to start playing. In Origin, we are given 3 starting pets;
  • Earning $SLP. The internal token of the game is also a cryptocurrency. Regular earnings on Axie Infinity are built on it. Previously, there was a mechanic for obtaining this coin in Classic, but now it has been removed or transferred to the Origin version.
  • Guide for beginners. A trifle, but nice. The developers have added a guide that tells all new players in Axie Infinity how to play and earn.
