Axie Infinity APK, from the Vietnam-based studio Sky Mavis, is one of the games that raise a lot of controversy in the game community.
Axie Infinity apk is a game that works on the blockchain platform. It is a game that helps you create, and nurture lots of Virtual Creatures which later become NFTs – virtual assets in the game, and which you can Collect, Battle, and Trade for real money. The game is famous not only because of its fun but also because in it, the players can generate income by playing games, called Play to Earn for short.
To start playing the game, you need to have a virtual currency available. Three types of virtual currencies are used to trade in Axie Infinity: ETH, AXS, or SLP. And besides, you need a lot of knowledge about NFT.
LET’S TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT NFT
NFT stands for “non-fungible token”. In short, this is a Digital Asset created from the game, it is in the game but can be brought out for exchange by real money as a tangible asset.
Konami recently celebrated the 35th anniversary of the legendary game Castlevania by holding an Auction event of NFTs from the Axie Infinity apk. This NFT collection includes gameplay scenes, hand-drawn images, and background music (BGM). It featured a map of Dracula Castle (it’s actually just a JPG) that was sold for $26,000.
SUMMARY OF GENERAL FEATURES OF NFT:
- NFT can be any digital object (image, video, music, text, code, item, weapon, equipment…) in the game or created in connection with the game.
- NFT can be traded in virtual or real money. After the transaction is done, the series of numbers (ledger) will immediately record the transaction.
- Each NFT has a unique, non-duplicate, and unique digit.
- NFT is predicted by many giants in the gaming industry as an inevitable trend in the future, a driving force behind players’ enthusiastic and creative contributions. And it is considered an effective bridge between the developer and players.
- The biggest risk and concern about the NFT is that there is no tangible policy to govern it. The NFT also does not follow any economic laws or market principles. Its value increases or remains the same or even becomes worthless, depending a lot on subjective, personal factors, and unpredictable events.
Like Pokemon, Axie Infinity apk is also a game of collecting creatures, taming, nurturing, training, and fighting against other creatures. If you win, the opponent’s animal will become yours, and you will continue the same process as above. But Axie Infinity apk is different from Pokemon. Specifically, in Axie Infinity, when you have built a large number of creatures, you can sell them in exchange for millions of dollars, depending on the value, strength, rarity, and quantity of the breed of that object.
THE AXIES HAVE 4 STATS
- Health: is the health and ability of each Axies
- Morale: the ability to deal critical hits at the beginning and end of the game
- Skill: the skill of each Axie. You can use many skills at the same time to create different combos. The Axies all have different skills, so they can create many forms and tactics of battle.
- Speed: Attack speed. Axies with higher Speed will attack first.
These stats of each Axie will depend on its class and body part. The class system is the same as Pokemon: Aqua, Plant, Reptile, Beast, Bug, Bird. The body is 6 parts: eyes, ears, horns, mouth, back, and tail. When it comes to battle, Axie Infinity is exactly a card battle game. Each group will include 3 Axies selected and arranged according to the owner’s discretion. In your turn, you will use a card to attack or defend to maximize options to reduce damage and increase damage to the opponent. Especially the buff or de-buff factor of the Axies in the same team. Some are for the attack, some are for pumping blood, and others are good at defending. Clearly assigning tasks for them will help you have more chances to win and be less confused in battle. At least you must have in your team a defender and an attacker.
