With the recent launch of AXS, we think it makes sense to dive a bit deeper into one crucial aspect of the Axie ecosystem, the Community Treasury.

The Treasury is at the heart of the feedback loop that drives AXS demand within our ecosystem. Let’s dive in and learn more!

Fees & Primary Sales

Once it’s live, 100% of all fees and primary sales from the Axie universe will be deposited in the Treasury.

The Axie ecosystem has a variety of different fees.

For now, there is a 4.25% marketplace fee as well as a .005 ETH fee for breeding Axies. …

This is an announcement we’ve been looking forward to for many months now.

Today, we’re proud to share that we’ve completed integration of Chainlink decentralized price feeds! In addition, we’ll be using Chainlink Verifiable Randomness Function (VRF) to introduce provably fair random elements into the Axie universe, starting first with Axie Origin Coins (AOC).

What a month October was! We hit new highs for monthly growth across all metrics. Battlers, traders, holders, and volume all skyrocketed as the world continues to wake up to our revolution.

The big news of the month was related to AXS, our governance token, which is now live on Binance and Uniswap! Behind the scenes, we made significant progress on land gameplay, our new battle system, and Ronin. Let’s dive in.

Growth and Adoption

October saw our NFT Marketplace put up stunning numbers. 4,018 ETH volume came from Axie sales while item and land sales totaled 2572 ETH. This combined for a cumulative monthly NFT volume of 6,090 ETH. Remember that 4.25% of this volume is taken as fees. This means that if the Community Treasury were live, 280 ETH would have been deposited in the Treasury, just from the marketplace sales! …

AAVE NFT Campaign

We strongly believe that crossovers between Decentralized Finance (DeFi) and gaming create benefits for users not possible in the legacy financial and gaming systems.

The man needs no introduction. This week we sat down with legendary Axie content creator cloudwhite (yes, the c is purposely lowercase). cloudwhite was the first person in the world to get an Axie tattoo. He directed and appeared in an Axie musical. He’s made Axie raps. Without him, the foundation of the Axie content creation scene would be much different.

cloudwhite is a rebel at heart and we’re proud to have him on our side for this revolution.

Axie Origin Coins ($AOC)

My Origin story? I was introduced to Axie Infinity through the CryptoKitties community. In January 2018 my New Years resolution was to stop talking to a girl I was madly in love with. She didn’t feel the same way about me, and with the start of the new year I wanted to begin the process of moving on. CryptoKitties was featured on VICE News and I became intrigued by the idea of digital collectibles. Up until that point, my knowledge of cryptocurrencies was sparse. I had never purchased cryptocurrency, let alone a NFT. However, I found myself interested in learning more. Thus began an entirely new type of love affair. To distract myself from heartbreak, I decided to learn more about this new technology. …

Baronar is a legend in the Axie community. Along with Enjoi, Baronar has started the first community-led podcast dedicated to Axie. It’s called Axie Chat and runs every Tuesday at 8PM EST.

Baronar is a land baron in the Axie universe and cleaned out the remaining Arctic chests earlier this year. He’s been one of the most vocal proponents for Axie land and it’s been fascinating to watch his research process based off the bits and pieces of information we’ve put out.

Tell us a bit about yourself and how you found out about Axie.

I am a long time gamer, but I have eclectic interests and hobbies. Generation X. One of my fondest memories was feeding tokens into games at our local arcade. Even as a child I liked to maximize my spend — $5 to get 25 tokens, get those five extra plays. I also love TCGs and board games (we own several dozen). …

We sat down with Axie moderator and community developer to pick his brain on his vision for Axie, what it’s like building tools for the Axie community and more! Owl is a great example of how Axie can introduce traditional gamers to Blockchain technology and even jumpstart career aspirations in this blossoming field!

How did you find Axie and what attracted you most about it?

I entered the crypto world early 2018 as a friend of mine told me about it. Summer 2018, I saw a post about Axie Infinity on Reddit and felt intrigued as soon as I saw the cute aesthetics of those axolotls. I didn’t get into it until I joined the Discord in August. …

September was possibly the best month so far in the history of Axie Infinity! The pieces are coming together and we are firing on all fronts. The community is growing at an astounding rate, marketplace volume is exploding, and here at Axie HQ, we’re getting very close to sharing new gameplay with the community!

Let’s dive in.

Growth & Adoption

Growth is going parabolic! Active users, marketplace volume, application downloads are all growing at the fastest rates we’ve ever seen.

The recent growth can be chalked up to a few factors:

  • General growth of the NFT space. As the NFT grows, Axie should outpace it, as people discover how hard we’ve been working for the past few years and our amazing product/community. …
