Axie Infinity game review | Blockchain (NFT) or Crypto-based

Never have I imagined that P2E (play-to-earn) will happen during my lifetime and I am so grateful to share this opportunity with all of you. With rates getting your ROI (return on investment) in just mos., it really is something to grab even topping almost every business model there is as of the moment.

So the game that I am talking about is Axie Infinity. It is an online game where you raise and breed certain kinds of monsters called "axies". It is an NFT (non-fungible token) kind of game where you buy your certified online/digital assets using real money thru cryptocurrency.

P.S. This is a simple review where I hope to explain things using simple words so doing your own research regarding things you don't understand here is highly recommended.

To start things off, the basic things you need to do are the following:

1. Install the game by visiting their official website here. Simply click the "PLAY NOW" button there and it should prompt a downloadable link depending on where you want to play the game (IOS, Mac OS, Android, or desktop-automatic).

2. Create a Metamask account and a Ronin wallet (chrome extension). They are both a kind of cryptocurrency wallet that will allow you to hold and transfer digital assets/funds. Metamask is more for storage and account key matters while Ronin will serve as your digital passport or boarding pass to use the cryptocurrency so you can interact (buy/sell/trade) in the online marketplace.

3. Funding your account. There are many ways to do this but of course, I will share what I personally did (did it the first time with the help of my cousin Paolo - shoutout Pao! Haha!).  I created accounts on the following platforms too:

> Binance - cryptocurrency exchange platform
> - local online wallet (used this to withdraw earnings)
> GCash - mobile funds or Globe cash (will be used to buy Ethereum cryptocurrency)

The short version of the procedure:

- Loaded GCash funds
- Bought Ethereum (ETH) on Binance via P2P (person-to-person) using the GCash funds
- Transferred ETH from Binance to Metamask
- Transferred ETH from Metamask to Ronin to become WETH (wrapped ETH)

Now, since you already have the currency needed to participate in the Axie marketplace, visit the site and buy your Axies.

* Before buying your "Axies" (which you'll need 3 [three] at the least, by the way), make sure to check their nature, statistics, and action cards. You'll mostly play with them in your first months so make those purchases count. Even if you are buying the ones with the least price when you are in a budget constraint situation, knowing that you got the best option possible at that time won't haunt you in the future. Hehe.

As you can see in the first picture above, I got the BBP combination which consists of the bird, beast, and plant. Some of the current popular choices due to PVP potentials are AAA (3X aqua), AAP (2x aqua, and a plant), or RRP (2x reptile, and a plant). For example, the plant natured axies are usually the front tanky ones or the ones who take the priority damage since they naturally have high health and big shield action cards, but then again, it depends on the particular axie you will buy so make sure to do your homework before making those purchases - statistics still vary per axie with the maximum value at 61.

How do you earn from playing? It is by earning SLP or Smooth Love Potions.

There are 3* ways to earn SLPs, and those are via:

1. Doing and finishing daily adventure maps
2. Logging in daily when you finish all the daily tasks
3. Doing PVP or person-vs-person battles and winning it

+ Finishing certain adventure maps (Lv. 21 & 36)
+ Breeding is another topic

Then, you can exchange those SLPs for real money or convert them to other cryptocurrencies as per your need.

How much was my first earning? It was P19,636.50 or $490 (for $1 to P40) for the first 15 days. The daily SLP then was at 150 pcs. but now, it is down to roughly around 75 pcs. per day. One of the important factors too before cashing out is the SLP value which is dependent on many factors including but not limited to the performance of the game and the cryptocurrency it belongs to. 

A special shoutout to my cousin Dem who was the key for me to start my Axie journey.. and to Ninyoww & Boss Khan, who both are my go-to gaming streamers for Axie. I regularly watch them at night, where they usually start their live video streams and entertain us all! Ang lupet niyong dalawa! Haha!

The verdict? It's definitely worth it. It is like a side hustle that pays big. At first, it will take around 2-4 hours of playing per day but as you go along and level up your axies, the less time you need to play it daily. As the game still develops, more changes will come but the benefits are already rewarding so I am quite excited for the future of the game. Are you?

I am just happy making my time more productive so hopefully, I brought something helpful to you too. See you in the Axie community!

P.S. I'll update this post when I get back my ROI and might include a link regarding a new blockchain game that might have the potential to be the second crypto-based game we all can earn from.

Update: With a total initial investment of P70,000, ROI was achieved after playing 3 straight months (August to November 2021). For my second crypto-based game investment, the game is called Dragonary.

  12. I have not played this video game, it sounds interesting and fun mostly.

  13. Thanks for your thoughts, added to portfolio

  14. great article.
    It's unfortunate that their are people who set up platforms in order to financially ruin innocent people who want to invest genuinely. I also fell for it and i almost lost my $134k which i had earlier invested, if not for the intervention of cybersecurity/ blockchain dev team, coinwalletsec101 on t e l e gram who helped me through the recovery process. Sky Mavis and HarmonyOne have been compromised and we've seen it happen with the bridge hack.
    with their intervention, i did not only get my coin back but i also got the offer for proper crypto insurance and cybersecurity protection against future attacks. Any with valuable crypto holdings should also look into security protection against data breach and ddos attacks. Everyone need to stay protected if you're a high value portfolio holder.

  15. My! that amount is really not a joke!

  16. We, a coffee company in the suburbs of Beverly Hills lost $2.3 million dollars to cryptocurrency investment scam recently. Two years ago when we first started depositing from our Coinbase wallet, we deposited 500,000 usdt and were told that it had reached 1.3 million usdt at which we wanted to withdraw but they asked for another 500,000 usdt for tax on accumulated funds with hope its all going to be added in our refunds. Little did we know that within one month this particular account was hacked and all our money was gone.We were scammed out of $2.3 million by a cryptocurrency investment scam and are very grateful to FASTFUNDSRECOVERY for helping us recover $1.3 million of our funds. We remain confident that we will have the remaining $1.9 million used by the fraudster in his outsourced wallet back soon, but are very happy with what they have achieved so far and thank them for their hard work.
