  • It was mentioned that the developers are pushing hard to polish the game and they are aiming to release Origin Alpha by the end of March. We expect that Axie Origin will release some time around Q1 of 2022, after Season 20.
  • Axie Infinity has surpassed $4 billion in all-time non-fungible token sales. Currently, it is the third-largest NFT project, right behind OpenSea and LooksRare.
  • The supply of Smooth Love Potion (SLP) tokens has been reduced by 56%, making them more scarce. As a result, the asset’s USD value surged to nearly $0.04 shortly after. However, SLP retraced by 55% during the week (in line with the overall downtrend in the crypto markets).
  • BlackPool Academy’s breeding program steams ahead with over 1200 scholars now!
  • We continue to farm RON and AXS with our liquidity pools, and remain bullish on the new horizons of both the Origins (v3) of the game, and the new Land Game!
