Overview: What is Axie Infinity?
Axie Infinity is a player-owned blockchain-based commerce and battle game.
Axie Infinity lets players acquire, breed, grow, combat, and trade token-based Axies.
These Axies come in over 500 distinct body parts, including aquatic, beast, bird, bug, plant, and reptile parts. Axies can have any combination of bodily parts, making them exceedingly varied, unusual, and distinctive.
Each Axie has unique qualities and strengths, and may be utilized in 3v3 combat to gain experience points that can be used to level up an Axie's stats or evolve its body parts. Breeding Axies together creates new and unique offspring that may be utilized or sold in the Axie market.
Axie Infinity features its own governance token, called Shards (AXS). These allow holders to vote on crucial governance issues and determine how Axie Community Treasury monies are used.
Axie Infinity's founders

AXS holders are members of Axie's decentralized structure and may help influence the platform's future by determining how to spend treasury money or the ecosystem fund. SLP, gained during gameplay, may be used to breed young Axies.
AXS and SLP are both ERC-20 tokens traded on Ethereum.

It's helmed by Trung Nguyen, an established entrepreneur and engineer, Aleksander Larsen (COO), and Viet Anh Ho, Sky Mavis' CTO and a Google and PayPal engineer.
How Does Play-to-Earn Work?
Axie Infinity helped create the play-to-earn gaming genre, which lets players to earn AXS, SLP, and goods by playing.
To play, new players must buy or borrow three Axies. Currently, the cheapest Axies range from $70 to $250. Axies with desired body parts, talents, or abilities will cost extra. This might hinder new players.
Axie Infinity Scholarships
Axie Infinity is unique in that it has its own thriving micro-economy. Thousands of gamers grind for AXS and SLP, breed and battle Axies, and purchase and trade rare goods to make money.
The play-to-earn nature of Axie Infinity has evolved to the Axie Infinity scholarship economy, in which well-off players, called Managers, lend a team of three Axies to employees, called Scholars.
These Scholars utilize their Axies to mill SLP and other rare goods for the Managers. The Manager may provide the Scholar educational tools and mentorship to increase their daily production.
Axie Infinity prohibits multi-accounts. Scholarships let Managers deploy more than three Axies without being suspended. Multi-account users risk having their Axies blocked, restricting their access of the site momentarily.
Managers must ensure their Scholars don't breach the rules or risk having their Axies prohibited from playing.
