E&S Token Review: Axie Infinity (AXS)


Hello Publish0x community and welcome back in this new article of my “Easy & Short Cryptocurrencies Made Accessible” area.

With this article we are going to introduce the 32nd cryptocurrency of this section with the 70th “E&S” article.

Today we will talk about Axie Infinity (AXS)!

In the last review, I talked about another crypto of the metaverse world. I’m talking about The Sandbox (SAND). If you missed my last review, you can recover it here.

Axie Infinity is currently one of the most popular Play2earn games in the world, played by thousands of users and with a colossal volume of asset transactions within it. Players who decide to register and play the game, have the possibility to obtain prizes and rewards for the game played. We have been a concrete reference point in the cryptocurrency sector for years and we are now proposing a game that integrates the well-known blockchain technology (used directly in many sectors). Being fully inserted in the crypto world and in the Metaverse, Axie Infinity has several tokenized assets within its ecosystem. One example is the Axie Infinity AXS governance asset, which is only tradable on major online platforms.

It is a Pokémon-inspired universe where players can unlock, improve and customize their creatures known as Axies in many different ways. What's more, you can collect resources and items to upgrade your land lots and, consequently, train your Axies even more efficiently. Land plots, in fact, can be upgraded over time using resources and crafting elements that can be obtained by playing. In addition, landowners could find AXS tokens on their plots of land or use Axies found within their land to explore the map and obtain other resources.

It's like a real estate market. Just as in a physical real estate strategy, if someone builds or improves the land next to ours, it becomes more valuable. When you've played so hard that you've improved your plot of land enough, in fact, you can resell it as an NFT, which is a unique virtual object that doesn't have any kind of copy in another object on the network.

Axie Infinity is being developed by Sky Mavis which is a technology-focused game studio founded in early 2018. The team consists of 40 full-time employees and has its headquarters in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. The founding team consists of the following individuals:

  • Trung Thanh Nguyen – CEO: Trung is involved in all key decisions from product to marketing and leads the company in Vietnam.
  • Aleksander Leonard Larsen – COO: Aleksander is responsible for all things business-related in Axie Infinity. He also serves on the board of directors in the Blockchain Game Alliance and holds the secretary position.
  • Tu Doan - Art Director and Game Designer: Tu runs the art team in Vietnam and designed the original Axies. He is responsible for the art direction and many game design concepts.
  • Andy Ho – CTO: Andy leads our engineering team and is responsible for the technical strategy and engineering operations.
  • Jeffrey Zirlin - Growth Lead: Jeff AKA "Jihoz" is responsible for growth and community development. He also spearheads token design and works closely with the product team.

Although the project is very young, Axie Infinity can boast several important partnerships such as: Samsung, Ubisoft, Binance, Maker, Aave and Kyber Network.

They have already completed a lot of milestones. Now, for 2022, they have the following goals to achieve for the roadmap:

  • Land Gameplay Community Alpha.
  • $AXS ecosystem begins: Governance, Play to Earn, Mainstream release of Axie Infinity on iOS/Android.
  • Land gameplay.
  • Lunacia SDK Alpha.
