    Axie Infinity fans play their way to payday as game token prices soar

    Long-time players of popular blockchain-based game Axie Infinity are laughing all the way to the bank this week as the game’s governance token, AXS, has surged more than 800% in under a month to an all-time high of US$29.08 on Thursday. Although it has dropped a little since, the price leap is good news for players, who are rewarded in cryptocurrencies and non-fungible tokens for breeding, training and battling Pokémon-like creatures in the game that are known as “Axies”.

    Looked into this a few weeks ago. You need to have 3 of the monsters to even play the game. The lowest was like $250. Hard pass. Not paying close to a grand for the privilege of getting owned by all the people who play nonstop.

    The games are really popular in poor countries. There are scholarship programs where you manage a team for guys that want to grind. Then you split the money with the guys that play.

    Axie Scholarship List & Tracker

    In an Axie Scholarship, there are managers (those who provide the Axie), and scholars (those who play the game). Typically, the managers take a percentage of the scholar’s earnings (eg. 30%, depending on the setup agreed upon). Scholarships are an ideal way for newer players to start out, as they allow them to dip their toes into the Axie ecosystem and experience the gameplay prior to investing in owning their own Axies.
    As of July 2021, a basic Axie can cost up to 0.15 ETH each ($308.73) and 3 Axies are required to play a game, bringing the total cost to around 0.5 ETH ($1,029.09). This makes Scholarship programme especially attractive to new players. Here’s a list of Axie Scholarship providers, along with their profit sharing mode, estimated earning and relevant links!

    I can imagine. Making good money off of playing a pokemon style game, who wouldnt jump all over that.

    As for the scholarships programs...congrats to those that already had or can afford/are willing to pay for good axies. Great deal for them.

    Will definitely be interesting to watch...esp. as copy cat projects start popping up.

    Not a recommendation. Just a chart to show why the price boom.

    I bought a Stoner Cat.

    Mila Kunis’ NFT project was a resounding success after selling out in just 35 minutes. But, it wasn’t without its share of bumps in the road. The recent Stoner Cat non-fungible token (NFT) sale had a number of ups and downs in the 40 minutes the collection took to sell out. The NFT sale was created to coincide with and promote a new adult animated series “Stoner Cats.” To hype up the show, an NFT collection of 10,420 stoner cats was minted and, as the team tweeted, “SOLD OUT in 35 meow-nutes!” Collectors were able to mint the cats for 0.35 ETH each, around $800, on the Stoner Cat website.
    The NFTs not only come with a digital piece of art, but also guaranteed lifetime access to all future episodes of the television series. Additionally, the show will debut to NFT owners first before eventually being opened up to the public. The entire ordeal, short as it was, caused Ethereum gas prices to soar and clogged up the entire network.
    Ethereum gas prices explode

    The Stoner Cats NFT sale sent gas prices past 600 Gwei, a number the industry hasn’t seen in a long while. According to a Twitter post from DeFi Prime, prices for rapid transactions topped out at 709 Gwei, around $33, while the slowest option, taking 10 minutes to process, was still nearly a $10 charge. A follow-up tweet by DeFi Prime links to a page with data from Dune Analytics that states, during the frenzy, 344.4 ETH, nearly $700,000, in value was lost due to failed Stoner Cat transactions.
    The Stoner Cats show is an adult animated series featuring Kunis along with Aston Kutcher, Jane Fonda, Chris Rock, and Seth MacFarlane. Even Ethereum co-founder, Vitalik Buterin, is on the show as a character known as “Lord Catsinton,” an old dead cat. Stoner Cats is backed by NFTs and is planning to use sales like this to finance its production.
    This sale alone netted the production around $8 million in funding. A number of the Stoner Cat NFTs are back up for sale on the OpenSea marketplace for 420 ETH, just a shade less than $1 million.
    An additional 3,000 NFTs will be minted and released during the first season of the series.

    I'm not saying that those 2 are bad, they may be great, but I don't have either. I've got YGG, some of the other coins they breed for scholarships and ILV.

    ILV pays well but it's locked up for 12 months. It could be huge if the gaming play to earn tokens remain strong.
    I posted this at the end of July. One mistake is that you don't have to lock it up for 12 months. You can stake flexible or for a shorter time. I'm in for 2 months.

    Bought one around $220 the first time I saw you mention it. Staked it for the full 2 years. Already have a half ILV reward. Current price $480. Might not be much it is a good feeling to double a gamble so quickly.

    Nice job! Amazing returns. You're making twice what I'm making staking.

    There was a massive AXS airdrop a couple days ago for long time players. People were staking at 300%. Unfortunately, I jumped out of most of it when they changed the breeding price. Right now I have 6 axies between 97-100% pure........ YGG now at $8.10.
