Axie Infinity has just dropped a huge bomb on the entire P2E community by making a very concerning announcement. There will be no more rewards for P2E players for playing Axie Infinity’s classic game.
Axie Infinity Launches Axie Infinity Origin
Just recently, Axie Infinity (AXS), which is a major play-to-earn (P2E) blockchain game, made an announcement about the launch of its new game.
The developers had announced that they had been working on the development of a new game called ‘Axie Infinity Origin’.
It was announced that just like the current classic game, the new mode will be filled with rewards as well. This had the entire Axie Infinity community jumping and cheering for the developers.
Axie Infinity has been around for a while in the world of cryptocurrencies and has built up a strong player base for its rewarding system.
The protocol introduced a new way of earning money. Instead of rewarding the players for their wins (win-to-play), Axie Infinity went with the play-to-win strategy.
This meant that the players would be rewarded for the time spent playing a game rather than struggling to win and then winning something.
No More Rewards for Axie Infinity Classic Game
Although the entire Axie Infinity community was excited that they will have more than one opportunity of winning prizes, the developers have dropped a piece of sad news for the players.
Axie Infinity has announced that they have completely removed the rewarding program from their classic game. Instead, they have moved the rewarding module to their new game ‘Axie Infinity Origin’.
The New Move by Axie Infinity Developers may backfire
Ever since Axie Infinity was introduced, it has managed to build a strong player base. The community was built around the P2E module for the classic game.
Now, the situation has changed as Axie Infinity has moved the entire rewarding system to Axie Infinity Origin. This is a clear attempt from Axie Infinity to move all the player-base from their classic game to the new mode.
However, the move Axie Infinity has made may backfire. This is because the strong community Axie Infinity has managed to build may not like the idea of moving the entire rewarding system to Origin.
There is a possibility that the players may not find Origin to be as rewarding or entertaining as they did the classic game.
No More Smooth Love Potions from Friday
It was on Friday when Axie Infinity made the announcement of switching rewards from the classic game to Origin. The developers confirmed that there will no longer be any Smooth Love Potions (SLP) that the users will be able to mint in the classic mode.
The developers have provided a reason that their minting service will be unavailable for 30-days on the classic game. They are currently monitoring the entire protocol to find any exploits, abuses, and bugs with the classic game.
Until then, the entire rewarding system has been shifted to the new game. It seems that for now, the protocol is benefiting from the shift as the value of AXS has surged by 1.25% in the past 24 hours and it currently stands at $19.61.
