What is Axie Infinity game ?
Axie Infinity is a blockchain-based trading and battling game that is partially owned and operated by its players.
Inspired by popular games like Pokémon and Tamagotchi, Axie Infinity allows players to collect creatures known as Axies.
Players aim to battle, breed, collect, raise, and build kingdoms for their Axies. The universe has a player-owned economy where players can truly own, buy, sell, and trade resources they earn in the game through skilled gameplay and contributions to the ecosystem.
These Axies can take various forms, and there are more than 500 different body parts available, including aquatic, beast, bird, bug, plant and reptile parts. Parts from each type class come in four different rarity scales: common, rare, ultra rare and legendary — and Axies can have any combination of body parts, making them highly variable and often rare and unique.
You can buy Axies from other players using the Marketplace, or you can purchase eggs from the Axie Lab if it is open.
You can also create new Axie eggs through breeding.
In the future, new players will be able to get started without any up-front purchase of Axies by receiving non-transferable Axies with limited earning potential.
