Axie Infinity (AXS) is the governance token for the blockchain-based game, Axie Infinity. Using blockchain technology, Axie Infinity is a battling game and trading platform that is operated, and partially owned by, players. The game is similar to that of Tamagotchi or Pokemon, allowing you to collect token-based creatures known as ‘Axies’ and then breed, raise and battle them.
These Axies are actually NFT tokens and come in many different forms. Each Axie has a combination of animal characteristics, with body parts from species like mammals, reptiles and birds. As a result, every Axie has different attributes and levels of strength that make them rare and highly valuable.
Players can battle their Axies in teams of three. The winning team earns points which improve their Axie’s attributes and upgrades their body parts. These winning Axies can then be bred to create new, unique varieties of Axies which can be sold on the Axie marketplace.
You can buy Axie Infinity in Australia through a cryptocurrency exchange, like Swyftx. Our platform enables you to buy, sell and swap Axie Infinity in Australia with some of the lowest trading fees on the market courtesy of our small spreads. The “spread” is the difference between the buy and sell prices of a tradeable asset. Often, spreads exceed the rates advertised by providers by substantial amounts. This means that when you buy AXS through Swyftx you can rest easy knowing that you’re not being stung with any hidden fees.
To trade Axie Infinity on Swyftx, simply sign up for an account via the app or website. Once your account has been created it only takes 2 steps to start trading. First, you must verify your identity by supplying a few key details – this process should take you roughly 3 minutes. Then, it’s just a matter of loading up your account. Swyftx allows you to deposit up to $50,000 AUD through bank transfer, POLi, PayID or credit/debit card. As soon as your funds are cleared, you’ll be able to buy AXS and any other asset you’d like!
Axie Infinity is unique for its utilisation of NFTs. The major focus of the game is to play well so that you can earn tokens to breed Axies, which you can then sell for real money. When you create an Axie through the game, you’re essentially creating a unique and original digital object – an NFT. The process of NFT minting on the blockchain verifies that the NFT has value and is a key element to ensuring legitimacy.
In the past, games that tried to support these kinds of in-game transactions struggled to combat fraud and items being duplicated rather than earned. Axie Infinity has solved these problems by utilising NFTs, subsequently creating a supply-and-demand force within its marketplace that continues to drive up prices for the unique Axie monsters.
Swyftx has implemented a comprehensive security framework to ensure we provide all our customers with a safe and secure environment to trade crypto assets like AXS.
Some of the specific measures we have in place include:
To further combat fraud and scam issues, Swyftx also leverages the same dataset and suite of solutions trusted by regulators, law enforcement and payments providers in Australia.
All units of AXS and other cryptocurrencies are stored in digital wallets. A digital wallet is a mechanism that allows you to store, send and receive cryptocurrencies. When you purchase Axie Infinity on the Swyftx trading platform, the asset will automatically be stored in your personal wallet. This wallet is already installed in your account when you sign up. After buying Axie Infinity you can then withdraw and transfer it to another wallet like a hardware wallet or web wallet if you wish to do so.
The short answer is, yes – you can buy Axie Infinity with any Bitcoin you own! Through the Swyftx app you can buy, sell and swap different cryptocurrencies. So, if you held Bitcoin (BTC) in your account, you could swap it directly for AXS tokens. Naturally, how much AXS you received in exchange for your BTC would be subject to the trading rates at the time of sale.
