After reading these blogs & watching the videos you are ready to play or maybe already started playing the game. Lets dive in a little deeper into some parts of the game. Lets talk about the Axies, breeding, tokens, a broader perspective of the ecosystem, updates & the roadmap.


Axies are the players of your winning team, Axies are cute little monsters that fight with the cards they have been dealt with. There are some articles & links below to more information on all the details of Axies. When you’re looking into buying Axies this is something you should keep in mind. You have to own 3 of those little monsters to start the game. You can buy Axies here!


Axies aren’t born out of thin air, they’re made with love! Every Axie can breed a maximum 7 new baby monsters, you ‘pay’ the costs of this breeding with AXS & a certain amount of Smooth Love Potion (SLP), this amount depends on the number of babies this Axie has made. we will expand on the token later. Here’s two articles that expand on breeding and the process.


Axie Infinity Shards(AXS) are an ERC-20 governance token for the Axie Universe. 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.

The pre-sale price was $0,08. The public sale $0,10. Allocation/unlocks. It is currently trading on different exchanges: https://www.coingecko.com/coins/axie-infinity#markets


Smooth Love Potion is an uncapped utility token that is used to breed new Axies. It can be either minted through playing Axie Infinity, bought via an exchange, or earned by participating in various promotions or tournaments. Smooth Love Potions are required in the breeding of two Axies, in which the the spent SLP will be burned and be replaced with a new Axie.
