According to the latest announcement from the developer of the game Axie Infinity, this game is about to launch a special version called Axie: Origin. Accordingly, this is essentially the "Free-to-Play" version of Axie Infinity. Players will not need to invest but can still earn a small amount of SLP (reward tokens).
Axie: Origin will release 3 versions on the App Store, Google Play and Steam. Thus, instead of spending thousands of dollars to build the initial squad (like in Axie Infinity), now players just need to download the game to be able to fight. Of course, the SLP bonus in Axie: Origin will be very small compared to the Axie Infinity version.
After this information was revealed, the gaming community Axie Infinity had many different opinions. Many people think that the release of Axie: Origin will make SLP inflation even faster. Meanwhile, some others (most of them can't play the game because the investment is too much) are excited when they are about to experience this game for free.
It is known that Axie Infinity is an NFT game running on the blockchain platform. The game is inspired by the game CryptoKitties. Basically, Axie Infinity is a virtual farming game where players can fight, collect, raise and build a kingdom on land for their pets.
In May 2021, Sky Mavis and the Axie Infinity project successfully raised capital in the Series A round of the US version of Shark Tank. Billionaire Mark Cuban and many other investors poured into Sky Mavis $ 7.5 million.
Currently the number of AXS in circulation is about 60.9 million tokens. The maximum total supply of AXS 270 million tokens. According to the update on the morning of August 9, the price of one AXS coin is $43.6. Market capitalization reached $2.6 billion.
