How to play Axie Infinity, learn to create your wallet
Before you start dabbling in Axie Infinity, it is important to know that the game is based on cryptocurrencies and non-fungible tokens (NFTs). The NFTs in the game are the Axies, which are the Pokémon-style characters used in battles and can be collected, trained, and created by users to interact with in the game.
Each Axie has unique and non-repetitive features, meaning thanks to NFT technology, no one will ever have an Axie quite like yours.
As we said, Axie Infinity is based on NFTs and cryptocurrencies. The game is based on the Ethereum (EHT) blockchain, so the first step is to create a cryptocurrency wallet that supports ETH applications, such as Dappradar.
In addition to Ethereum, Axie uses its own blockchain called Ronin, and in this way, players, before starting the game, must also create a wallet using the Ronin service.
Well, after creating the portfolios, now it's time to buy the Axies, which are the characters of the game and, therefore, without them it is not possible to play. Axie Infinity is not a free-to-play game, that is, it does not allow players to access the game without first making an 'investment', which, in this case, is the purchase of three Axies that can also be sold to anyone when the player thinks better.

To buy or sell Axies, players must access the game market and therefore they must have a Ronin Wallet account, as mentioned above. In the in-game market, players can buy the desired Axies, as well as other items for the game.
As each Axie is a unique NFT, players should be aware that each attribute of an Axie will influence their performance in matches and therefore the compensation that each pet will be able to provide to the player.
The axes are divided into nine classes, such as aquatic, vegetable, and insect. Each of them interacts in one way with the other at the time of battles. In addition, they have four attributes: health, speed, skill and morale. In addition, they have classes: there are nine in total, such as aquatic, vegetable and insect.
Therefore, to know how each Axie class interacts with each other, you can refer to other posts on our portal that explain all the mechanics of the Axie classes within the game and how each one interacts with the other allowing better gains in battles.
To start the game, the player must have a minimum of 3 Axies. On average, since the game is booming, each Axie costs around $400, so those interested need to invest around $1200 to start playing.
However, it is possible to play for free by renting a team through the Scholarship link on the official website. In this method, users who have axes rent the little monsters to players who don't have the money to pay for one. However, there is a split of the winnings where the player keeps 60% of the money while the pet owner keeps 40% of the winnings.

In the Arena mode, the player will have to fight against other players in a PvP style where the best Axies will be victorious.
In order to earn the most SLP, players must complete the daily missions indicated by the game and that involve tasks in both Adventure mode and Arena, however, the player does not need to follow the proposed missions, he can choose to play in any of modes and build your own interaction with the game.
Chosen the battle mode, now it's time to put Axie to fight. The game is very simple and works like a card game where each Axie has a power card that will be randomly selected by the computer and used by the player at game time.
The objective is to defeat the opposing team using the power cards of each Axie. In each mode (Adventure or Arena) players earn SLP based on interaction and practice in the game.
