Axie Infinity is an NFT game developed by Sky Mavis, a technology-focused game studio founded in early 2018. The whole Axie ordeal is inspired by Pokemon and Tamagotchi games. Axie Infinity is classified as an NFT game that allows individuals to earn currency from playing the game as they breed, raise, battle, and trade Axie creatures in the marketplace. Axie Infinity’s mission was to function as a fun and educating way to introduce the world to blockchain technology. Many of its developers and team members met from playing Crypto kitties, which then evolved to them working on Axie to introduce the magic of Blockchain technology to players. All art assets and Axie data can be accessed by 3rd parties, allowing the community developers to build their own tools and experiences to improve the Axie Infinity universe further. The difference between Axie and your traditional game is that Blockchain economic design rewards their players for their contribution to the ecosystem. Meaning that the more you contribute to the Axie Universe, the more rewards to reap.
