What is Axie Infinity?
Axie Infinity is a game played with creatures called Axie. Axies are unique, unchangeable Tokens that we refer to as NFTs. So when you have an Axie, it will be unique and will belong only to you. Just like Pokemon, Axies have their own types, characteristics and powers. In order to play the game, you must have 1 team of 3 Axies.
According to the data conveyed by the measurement company DappRadar, the popular NFT game Axie Infinity hit the $2 billion milestone in all-time sales as of September.
Sky Mavis, the Axie Infinity developer, has raised $152 million in Series B funding at a $3 billion valuation in October.
