Axie Infinity is a digital pet universe where players can battle, raise, and collect fantasy creatures called Axies. Axie Infinity is inspired by Pokemon and is often referred to as the Pokemon NFTs. Axie highlights the benefits of blockchain technology through play to earn gameplay and a player-owned economy. Axie Infinity was founded in 2018 and its headquarter is in Vietnam.
Axie Infinity is Ethereum-based and all Axies are represented as ERC-721 tokens. They function as game characters that can be used in various games in the Axie Infinity universe. Besides collecting and raising, you can make a team of Axies to battle in the arena.
To get started, you first need to connect your Ethereum wallet. The team highly recommends using MetaMask. Since the game runs on Ethereum, you’ll need some ETH in your wallet to begin with. Then, you’re able to adopt your first Axie. But you can also buy, sell, and trade them on marketplaces.
