Online pay-to-earn (P2E) gaming platform Axie Infinity has announced the transition of its gaming mode from classical to a better-developed one dubbed Axie Infinity Origin.


According to the blogpost shared by the platform, the transition to the new game mode will be completed in 30 days, starting from last Friday. Axie Infinity has often developed an online gaming platform where users earn in crypto assets, ensuring that withdrawal is seamless. The new upgrade, however, promises a better experience for users on the platform.


In the former game mode, the Smooth Love Potions (SLP) token was well featured, however, the new gaming mode will see this vital token now integrated into the Origin’s ranked gameplay mode and completely removed from Classic (v2). The Origin Season 0 mode is billed to be fully integrated starting from the 12th of August.

The team notes that transitioning from the Classic game mode is necessary so that it achieves an expanded ability to balance the SLP economy. Hence, every step taken in this light is geared to achieve this aim.

Despite this transition, the Axie Infinity team said the SLP token “will continue to only be distributed in PvP Ranked mode when players win battles, and the higher Rank that one is competing in, the more SLP rewards they will receive per win.”


P2E games are becoming more of a central pursuit to the Non-Fungible Token (NFT) ecosystem and more startups are committed to developing new gaming titles for Web3.0 users. As one of the pioneering P2E game outfits, Axie Infinity is committed to continuous game development and strategic updates that can help keep it on top as one of the most competitive platforms today.

This is even so necessary as Venture Capital firms like Andreessen Horowitz (a16z) and Magic Ventures amongst others are largely committing new funds to bootstrap startups with unique gaming models.
