According to Bittrex, the exchange will accept payments in US dollars (USD), Tether (USDT), or Bitcoin (BTC). Trading will be available round-the-clock seven days a week.
Product-Market-Fit: The #1 NFT game on Ethereum by weekly & monthly active users. There are over 10,000 Axie holders and over 5,000 daily active users for the Axie Alpha application. 50% of all Axie owners play every day; the game is fun and very sticky.
Combining Gaming and Decentralized Finance: Axie has been experimenting with ERC-20 drops in their application since January 2020 with DAI, KNC, and DGX distributed to players. In addition, DeFi users have qualified for exclusive MakerDAO and Kyber Network Axie NFTs. These early crossovers with DeFi projects illustrate the Axie team’s ability to spot trends early and use them to expand the player base. Thousands of Axie players qualified for the UNI airdrop which changed many lives and created lifelong supporters for the project.
Experienced team: Axie Infinity is created by Sky Mavis, a technology-focused game studio headquartered in Singapore. The team consists of 25 full-time employees with diverse backgrounds and have been building since early 2018.
Demand for Axies, Land, and Items: Volume in the internal Axie Infinity marketplace has been growing steadily since it’s launch in mid-2018, and players have now traded Axies, land, and items for over 12,000 ETH. The Axie marketplace is the largest NFT marketplace focused on a single project and has been used by over 7,000 unique addresses. The most expensive Axie sold was purchased by institutional investor Delphi Digital for over $50,000 (150 ETH).
Community engagement: A fanatic community that contributes tools, art, guides, and podcasts to the ecosystem. Community-led institutions like Axie World, Axie Edge, Axie.zone, and the podcast Axie Chat demonstrate that the ecosystem is fostering quality contributions from the user base. Some players have even started businesses on top of Axie, lending out teams of Axies through “scholarships” to those that want to try the game without making economic decisions.
Governance and Community Treasury: Token holders will be able to direct usage of funds pooled in the Community Treasury, and in time join in deciding what features should be added to the game.
World-class partners: Samsung, Ubisoft, HTC, MakerDAO, Kakao (KlaytN), Kyber Network, Animoca Brands, 500 Startups, Hashed, Delphi Digital.
