Axie Infinity is a unique game where your Axies are basically NFTs that live in the blockchain. If you want to try out this pay-to-win title, here’s a guide to downloading and playing Axie Infinity on Android and iOS.

Pay-to-win games are yet to make a strong impression in the gaming community. Despite the prominence of microtransactions in Fortnite, Overwatch 2, and Warzone, the developers refrain from releasing pay-to-win content as it instantly leads to backlash.

In contrast, Axie Infinity is an openly pay-to-win game where players can unlock digital pets known as Axies with Ethereum-based Cryptocurrencies. Sky Mavis, the developer, describes it as a “pay-to-play-to-earn” ecosystem where playing more can help you recover the initial investment.
