April Axie Infinity Ecosystem Update
GamerSpeak’s Monthly Newsletter Covering Key Details and Observations about the Axie Infinity Economy and Community
This newsletter will be a form for our team to talk to our community while sharing key details in the Axie ecosystem that are important for our future as a guild. This is our way of giving back and helping everyone in our ecosystem stay up to date.
Land Staking Launches!
Axie Infinity has released details on how owners can stake their land. Owners can expect specific rewards depending on their land type. According to Axie Infinity, “Land Staking is an initiative designed to increase ownership of AXS among our landholders…. we want to make sure that their long term outlook is rewarded with more ownership and influence over our collective ecosystem.”
This update comes with criticism from land investors as land gameplay has continuously been delayed.
$AXS rewards for land will continue to increase $AXS circulating supply in the market. $AXS has continued in a downtrend and these emissions will possibly add to the selling pressure.
Axie Infinity: Taking Steps Towards Land
Sky Mavis has released a video showcasing their updated version of Land to their community. Check out the video of Axie Infinity Land here.
Phil and Zyori went on Twitch live to discuss the progress on Land. Check out their presentation here.
The video showcases: Harvesting 🪓, Producing 🌽, and Crafting 🛠️. They have provided a disclaimer that states, “This is a very early version of land. The final product will be much more fleshed out-- we wanted to give you all a visual update, nonetheless.”
Land will be a mix of various games we have seen in the Web 2 era such as Farmville. There is a lot that is unknown about land but it is encouraging to see the team continuously providing the community with updates.
Building Origin From The Ground Up 🛠️
The Sky Mavis team has released various articles discussing the changes they have made with Axie Infinity: Origin.
With the launch of Origin, various updates have been deployed in the new gameplay. The majority of the updates are directed toward creating a more competitive game while focusing on receiving general feedback from all the players.
These updates have included; changes to the energy system within the gameplay, card balancing, visual changes, new and improved matching-making systems, and so much more.
The team has also unlocked all of the new charms and runes within the game for all players to try before the new upcoming season. They are pushing hard to create as balanced a game as possible to ensure a successful launch of Origin when launched on mobile and rewards are implemented.
The Importance of ESports in Axie
Axie Infinity has expressed its commitment and belief that Esports will help Axie Infinity grow and become the number one blockchain game.
On March 30, 2022, the Axie Esports Competitive Integrity Council (AECIC) was formed by Sky Mavis to ensure fairness and a level playing field.
AECIC created a global ruleset for Axie Infinity Esports that applies to all parties involved in any aspect of the competitive Axie Esports space. You can read more about it here.
With the launch of the Axie Infinity: Origin Alpha, there has been a lot of feedback from players. Sky Mavis has considered the feedback to help improve the Esports within the game.
Competitive Esports Modes will be coming to the future of Axie Infinity. The team is working diligently to figure out what works best.
Marketing and Growth Through Community Creatives
Axie Infinity has a powerful community behind them which they hope to utilize in this next phase of growth moving forward with Origin.
They are looking to encourage the creation of educational materials for Origin. Axie Infinity is using 1000 AXS from the Axie Ecosystem Fund to fund an education challenge! This is to help players with the upcoming release of Origin which comes with all-new game mechanics, new cards, runes, and charms.
Judging will be based on three equal categories: educational value (33%), originality (33%), and quality (33%).
The rewards are as listed: 1 Grand Prize Winner - 180 AXS + Axie Hoodie 4 Runner-up Winners - 80 AXS + Axie Hoodie 50 Honorable Mentions - 10 AXS each. The winners were chosen in March.
Builders Program: An important step towards sustainability
The Axie Infinity builders program was created to help foster an ecosystem of games within the Axie Infinity metaverse. The ultimate goal of the program is to introduce new and exciting games to Axie Infinity while creating a sustainable model through the burning mechanism in-game.
It is stated in the article, “the goal of this program is to further strengthen our community’s ability to create gaming experiences and tools while managing risk to our community members, and our gaming network at large.”
Axie Infinity will be reviewing applications on an ongoing basis and selecting new teams to enter the program over time.
Some example project ideas that may enter the builder program are Axie Tamagotchi, Axie Bomberman, Axie Tower Defense, Axie Racing, Axie Chess, and Axie Platformer.
