Axie Infinity is a play-to-earn NFT game developed by the Vietnamese game studio Sky Mavis. It has taken the world by storm in recent months. It’s a game where players need to purchase “Axies” with Ethereum, but in return they can also earn real money by converting in-game points to cash, or by breeding and selling more Axies.
This means that even though the price of entry is high, you will get your money back. It sounds like a scam, really. But I did extensive research and finally gave in and bought a (cheap) team to test it out. It’s even in the news…
Play to earn (But you have to pay first before playing)
Before you can play the game, you will need a team. A team is composed of 3 Axies. On average, at the time of writing this, an Axie can be purchased for around 0.15 Ethereum or around $350.
