About Axie Infinity
Axie Infinity is the most popular blockchain game in the NFT world at the moment, It was developed by indie studio Sky Mavis and inspired by Nintendo’s worldwide recognized Pokémon series. Love Potion.
In Axie Infinity, users acquire NFTs that symbolize beautifully crafted monsters known as Axies and then combat them for prizes. In addition, while games, users can acquire Smooth Love Potion (SLP) tokens, which can be traded for money through an exchange. Axie Infinity’s ecosystem uses Axie Infinity Shards (AXS) and Smooth Love Potion (SLP) as native ERC-20 assets for its DeFi applications and financial utilities (SLP).
This wholly new blockchain-enabled technique of earning and trading assets through gameplay has sparked a whole new ecosystem in the digital asset industry and is powering the ‘play-to-earn’ gaming craze.
With the help of Ronin, a sidechain that helps reduce costs, transaction delays, and network latency, the Axie Infinity game runs on the Ethereum blockchain. Players and their Axie monsters fight against computer-controlled Axie teams or live opponents from all over the world in turn-based fights.
Axie Server Problem
The blockchain giant game Axie Infinity received a series of complaints some weeks ago from the players about some setbacks hitting the game platform, including server issues and others. Until yesterday, when the server problem persisted, making it difficult for players to enter the adventure mode and play the game. Also, there were complaints of disconnections which renders the smooth experience of the game to be dull.
Not only that, but Axies were not also been able to purchase.
Following the outpouring of complaints, Axie Infinity turned to Twitter (https://twitter.com/AxieInfinity/status/1448130147958149123) yesterday to recognize the problems and say they’re working on a solution. A Tweet from the game’s developer stated that the marketplace had been restored and any stuck Axies had been resolved. Morphing and breeding have also been corrected. So it’s evident that the majority of the critical issues have been resolved. Later yesterday, Axie Infinity turned to Twitter to say that the server problems are due to exponential expansion and that they’re working on completely upgrading their infrastructure.
