Axie Inifinity surging into the spotlight
Axie Infinity is a turn-based real player game (RPG) that allows users to buy, sell, trade, breed, and battle cuddly digital pets called “axies”.
Similar to Pokemon, users can build a team of three axies or a digital pet, each with their unique set of skills and powers. Axie Infinity adopts a play-to-earn gameplay where you can level up your axies or digital pets via the Adventure Mode or battle with other users in the peer-versus-peer (PVP) Arena Mode. Each win in the Arena Mode will earn you the native in game token called Small Love Potion tokens (SLPs) which are traded on various exchanges
Axie Developer Sky Mavis announced on August 6 that the game hit another milestone: more than one million daily active users (DAUs). This represents a huge growth in DAUs — as of May 2021, Axie Infinity’s player base was at 60,000 DAUs.
According to the statistics, more than two-thirds of the users are on Android, while nearly all the rest of the users are on Windows PCs.
