June 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.
Referral Codes Live, Lunacian Derive Value
Axie Infinity looks to give back to its community through a “first-of-its-kind” gaming referral code called Lunacian Codes. It will be funded by the ecosystem fund during testing. For more info, check out our Lunacian Codes Guide.
This feature will look different as the test continues. The team hopes to empower its users, specifically creators, to bring in new community members into the ecosystem. Lunacians will have the ability to create custom codes.
When a Lunacian Code is used, 1% of the 4.25% marketplace fee will be sent to the referrer. When a code is not used, the entire 4.25% goes into the Community Treasury, as usual. Once per month, Sky Mavis will use the Ecosystem Fund to FULLY REFUND the Community Treasury for the total reward payouts during that period.
Empowering Lunacia To Create Change
Axie Infinity has released a forum for token-gated discussions hosted by the Commonwealth! This forum is built to enable its community to post discussions about topics important to the future of Axie Infinity.
The release comes after a huge backlash from the lack of communication between the team and the community. This move will act as a “stepping stone towards community governance”.
A polling feature allows Axie Infinity to gather feedback around new product features and ideas. The forum will allow for more detailed long-form discussions around some of the most important topics affecting the Axie community!
Creating posts in topic-specific channels costs 25 AXS and posts in the general forum require 15 AXS.
Origin Plan Moving Forward, Updates Made
Origin has launched and is continuously updated. The Axie Infinity team has released its four-phase plan for a global launch. The phases create an equitable playing field for all while allowing the current community to experience the Origin gameplay.
Phase 1 focuses on making the game more competitive, improving the amount of in-game decision-making, and ultimately making the game more fun!
Phase 2 will see a full in-game reset of MMR, Moonshards, and Runes/Charms.
Phase 3 will remove SLP rewards from V2 and move SLP rewards to Origin. In parallel, they will introduce an SLP burn mechanic through crafting NFT Runes/Charms.
Phase 4 will start its first official Season! Global Launch / Season 1 Specifics:
Moonshards are all reset from player inventories.
All Runes and Charms expired, including NFTs.
MMR / Leaderboard will reset as a normal season process.
Within June, Origin has seen multiple updates outlined in Phase 1. Origin is seeing more activity within the community as a result of these changes.
Calling All Lunacia Creators everywhere
The Axie Creator Program is designed to identify and, more importantly, support contributors who are impactful to the Axie ecosystem. It sounds simple enough, but building this kind of program in web3 brings new and unique challenges, many of which have never been solved before.
Content Creators (video, live, audio, written, Creatives (artists, editors, members, cosplayers), Developers, and Contributors (guilds, niche communities, event organizers, competitive players) are all welcome to apply.
The Axie Creator Program will include rewards to catalyze all forms of creator contribution. The plan is to start with easily accessible rewards based on the data already collected from the community. The Program will then introduce larger, more complex reward projects as we gather feedback over time.
Along with the launch of the Axie Creator Program, the Axie Infinity team has released The Creator Academy.
Axie Infinity is funding 200 fellowships for creators participating in Nas Academy’s new Creator Academy. This training school has been designed by Nas Academy specifically for Axie Infinity community members and is separate but complementary to the Axie Creator Program operated by QU3ST.
Land Staking Promise Come True, Touches on Axie Infinity Economic Plan Moving Forward
The Axie Infinity community's long-awaited wish for land staking has finally come true. Land Staking will reward holders of land daily rewards of $AXS.
Once any type of gameplay for Land is released that can support token rewards, these Land Staking rewards will transition to rewards through active gameplay.
It is important to note here that Axie Infinity intends to add engagement and gameplay requirements to the claiming of rewards in our ecosystem over time.
Rewards are 11,194.62 AXS AXS per day and differ based on the rarity level of the staked land.
Axie Infinity Takes AxieCon To The Next Level
Axie Infinity has pushed AxieCon to the next level by creating a further purpose for the conference. Instead of any regular conference, this will act as their way to bring their digital community to real life. They will also host many various events that talk about the digital nation’s plan to succeed in the future.
Programming will include Product Announcements, Developer Panels, Community Panels, Governance Talks, Mystic Holder Gatherings, Origin World Championships, Gatherings, and Meet Ups.
Axie Infinity is committing $1,000,000, in AXS, from the Play & Earn fund to support 3 unique tournaments with direct prizes at AxieCon!
They will host the following events at Axie Con.
