Axie Infinity is one of the top NFT games with 2.8 million daily active players. This play-to-earn game allows players to earn AXS tokens by playing, which can then be used in the platform’s governance.
Players start out by buying three digital pets called Axies and raise them to eventually create generations of these creatures. Each Axie leaves its genetic imprint on its descendants, passing down its characteristics, weaknesses, and strengths. Ideally, players should try to create a rare breed of Axies with the most unique traits to get a good price for them on the Ethereum NFT marketplaces, where the creatures can be traded.
According to the Axie Infinity website, the most expensive Axie ever sold was for $820,000. Additionally, $3.6 billion worth of transactions have taken place in their in-house marketplace.
