After a tough 2022 year, Axie Infinity plans to take a more aggressive stance on crypto in 2023.
Axie Infinity, the largest blockchain-based game, plans to take a more aggressive stance on cryptocurrencies, while maintaining the play-to-earn system in the same way.
Bloomberg News Speaking at a panel organized by Axie developer Sky Mavis, Leonard Larsen noted that they need more tokens and more crazy ideas for new experiences.
Larsen also criticized Apple’s restrictions on NFTs in video games, saying that with this decision, it is difficult for blockchain-based game producing companies to compete with traditional studios.
The project, which previously said that it will switch to the “play and earn” system instead of the play-to-earn system, seems to have given up on this attitude. The play-to-earn system means a system where players can win as they pay.
The Axie Infinity game gained great popularity in countries such as the Philippines and Vietnam, especially during the Covid-19 outbreak.
However, a $600 million hack linked to Axie Infinity left users unable to access their funds for several months.
Larsen stated that Apple’s transaction fees and restrictive proposals are very bad for the industry, and used the following statements:
“The directive we got from them is: “Oh you have to do XYZ, you need to adapt your game to this new box” But inside this box is nothing people would expect from a web3 game so we are forced to compete with web2 games before we have a chance to show people the advantages of web3 . This is also an extremely absurd situation”
