Among the four tokens listed last week, two stand out for their focus, purpose, and theme: AXS and SLP. Unlike the others, these tokens relate directly to one game - Axie Infinity, the biggest play-to-earn at the moment.

Ok, you have followed the listings, joined our Telegram group, voted on Twitter, and are now wondering: what is a play-to-earn?

Play-to-earn is an innovative gaming model: while the original formats offer the gaming experience in exchange for payment, Axie Infinity invites players to participate fully: you are the owner of three unique characters, axies, registered on blockchain - Non-Fungible-Tokens (NFTs) - and you receive tokens for completing certain activities, such as winning an online match. These tokens are, precisely, SLP and AXS.

It is very simple to start playing Axie Infinity, you need to buy 3 axies, nfts of the game, and you will be able to play, however it is worth mentioning that there are different strategies of which axies to buy, so it is worth doing some research before buying your axies. With the team you have, depending on its strength, it will be framed in a ranking in online mode, and this will define how much you will earn per match, which can vary from 1 SLP to more than 10 SLPs (today the SLP is around 2 cents). As for the AXS token, also listed on Blocktane, this is more difficult to generate, being necessary to take part in special events in the game or also to be one of the top players of each season.

Another strategy that gamers use to leverage their in-game investments is the breed of new Axies, for that you will need to gather two Axies and spend SLP and AXS tokens, this is one of the main uses for these assets. It is also important to ratify that the Axie Infinity project is expanding, this time to a metaverse, which will bring even more usecases for SLP and AXS tokens.

After this brief summary it is worth mentioning that Blocktane has a full range of tools to safely store and allow secure trading of your tokens.
