About Axie Infinity
Axie Infinity is a Play-and-Earn blockchain game on the Ethereum Network, that allows players to collect and mint NFTs of digital pets known as ‘Axies.’ Inspired by the amphibious salamander ‘Axolotl,’ Axies are used to breed, join adventures, and engage in PvP battles to gain in-game rewards.
Leveraging NFT technology, players are granted true ownership of their Axies, giving them the freedom to buy, sell, and trade their in-game assets on the Marketplace. According to the game’s website, “the most expensive Axie ever sold” fetched as much as $820,000 in July 2021.
