In 2019, Sky Mavis raised a fund totaling $1.5 million. This allowed them to speed up development of Axie Infinity. In May 2021, it raised another $7.5 million with the help of Mark Cuban, Alexis Ohanian and other technology entrepreneurs. By 2021, as the game grew in popularity averaging more than 2 million daily active players, Sky Mavis entered unicorn territory by raising another $152 million in funding and a $3 billion valuation.

How Does Axie Infinity Work?

Before proceeding with this NFT-game, a player needs to create a team of three axies. Axie pets, which are equipped with skills, can cost between 0.1 ETH and 0.2 ETH. The Axies form the foundation of the game.

Since the Axies themselves are the game’s currencies, players can breed, train and strengthen creatures by upgrading their skills, to trade or sell them later, either for other cryptocurrencies or actual money. Because of the lucrative opportunity in this game, many gamers have turned gaming into a second job relying on earning the in-game tokens.

Other Ways of Investing on Axie Infinity

If you don't have the deep pocket to purchase the game's three Axies, you can still participate in the game as a "Scholar". A "Scholarship System" was created to allow players to play for a "Manager" — an Axie investor. The manager and the scholar will then agree to specific terms and conditions such as percentage shares, daily quotas and payout schedules.

In short, the scholar earns a salary from the manager depending on how they perform in the game.

  • Battles: After breeding and training your Axies, you can enter them in battles to climb up the leaderboard and earn rewards in the form of NFTs, and tokens. The more battle you emerge victorious, the more expensive your Axie becomes.
  • Staking: Axie Infinity rewards are not exclusive to gamers. The AXS token can be staked by anyone. Compared with trading for new users, staking provides a consistent payout. Therefore, most new users prefer staking to trading. Staking provides the advantage of maintaining ownership over your digital assets.
