It is no surprise that Axie Infinity plots of land are selling at high prices. The popular play to earn game is now the most traded NFT collection ever. However, no one could have predicted yesterday’s record-breaking sale.
The land is becoming a precious commodity within the game and the sale yesterday proves it. A rare piece of Axie Infinity land sold for 550 ETH, around $2.48 million in today’s market. This particular plot of land is called a ‘genesis’ plot, and it is one of the rarest in the game. In fact, there are only 220 of the Genesis land plots in existence.
Axie Infinity is the biggest of all the play to earn games. The hugely successful Pokémon series inspired the blockchain-based game. In-game, you can collect, breed, raise and battle adorable creatures called Axies. Additionally, players fight against each other to earn Smooth Love Potion (SLP), a cryptocurrency.
