On December 8th, Sky Mavis announced that it would be lowering the price of breeding Axies, Axie Infinity’s in-game pets. Breeding is a gameplay mechanic through which players can create new gaming characters from Axies they already own. Moreover, the rarer the Axies used for breeding, the more unique a new pet users are likely to get.
Two months ago, Sky Mavis halved prices of breeding, which had been 1 AXS or $68.33 at the time, after the game reached $2B revenue in sales. Now, the cost is set to become 0.5 AXS, which is worth $54 at the time of writing.
On the other hand, the cost of breeding in SLP, solely based on the in-game currency, will be tripled. It is perhaps important to note that SLPs price decreased only by half since the announcement. The changes will come into force tomorrow, December 9th, 3:00 a.m. UTC.
Due to the implementation of Katana, Axie Infinity’s in-game crypto exchange, you can decide for yourself in which currency to pay the fees, simply by making an exchange without even leaving the game.
