Axie Infinity is working with the Aave team on a few tasty DeFi X NFT crossovers!
First and foremost, the Aave team has stepped up to sponsor Season 13 of the Axie Community Alpha! Starting next Monday, Axie players will duke it out for over 4,000 USD in AAVE tokens!
In addition, we’ve created a limited edition AAVE-themed NFT! This NFT can only be earned for the next month, and anyone that holds at least .65 AAVE can qualify!
We strongly believe that crossovers between Decentralized Finance (DeFi) and gaming create benefits for users not possible in the legacy financial and gaming systems.
In addition, gaming can be a vital on-boarding portal for users into the rest of the crypto economy. We invite our community to research to research the Aave protocol and how it fits into the DeFi ecosystem.
We’d also like to formally invite the Aave community to start playing Axie Infinity!
What is Aave?
Aave (fun fact: the name is taken from the Finnish word for “ghost”) is a decentralized, open-source, and non-custodial protocol for money market creation on Ethereum. Depositors earn interest by providing liquidity to lending pools, while borrowers can obtain loans by tapping into these pools with variable and stable interest rate options. Aave Protocol is unique in that it tokenizes deposits as aTokens, which accrue interest in real time. It also features access to Flash Loans, the first uncollateralized loan option in DeFi.
What is Axie?
Axie Infinity is a Pokémon inspired digital pet universe where players can battle and collect fierce, fantasy creatures called Axies. Players can earn a variety of tokens by playing the game, making Axie a true play to earn experience.
The most important part about these collaborations is that the Axie community gains new allies for our revolution. Aave has a banking license in the UK and stands to be a major on-boarding gateway for blockchain technology. In addition, we’d love to see AXS and potentially even things like wrapped Axies/AXS accepted on the Aave platform in the future. Let’s all work hard and make it happen!
