Getting Started in Axie Infinity

Last Updated:

Axie Infinity is a play-to-earn game where players use a team of creatures called Axies in battling other players or clearing adventure stages. Players can earn SLP which can be converted to Ethereum, and finally, exchanged to real money should they wish to. In our Getting Started Guide, we will provide the steps one needs to take in order to play this popular play-to-earn game.

Getting started in the game is not simple. It’s easy to get overwhelmed with the steps and even discouraged by the hassles ahead. In this guide, we will list down the steps and divide the steps in their own individual pages for easier reading and reference.

Getting Started in Axie Infinity

Before you start, you need to decide what type of player you’re going to be. Are you going to be the owner/ investor or a scholar. The latter is a welcome option for most players who don’t have the capital so kindly check out our dedicated page for that. If you want to be an owner/manager/player, there are some major hurdles you need to overcome. Please continue reading below.

First, you need to have the capital. To play the game, you’ll need a starter team of 3 axies. Each axie’s price is determined by their stats and cards (skills). As of this writing, there are relatively cheap axies costing around $22 but remember, you get what you pay for. Decent and reliable axies come around the $100 - $200 price range so since you’re getting three, you’ll have to cash out around $300-600. Since the price is not stable, that estimated figure may decrease or increase by the time you start playing.

Next, you’ll need the means to purchase Ethereum. You’ll need this cryptocurrency to purchase actual Axies. Since this process can be quite complicated and overwhelming for those who have little or no understanding of how cryptocurrency works, we highly recommend reading articles from different sources. You can check out the links below for some good resources regarding the matter.

Once you have purchased ETH, you’re finally done with the biggest hurdle most starter players encounter. Next, you’ll need to do the steps below. Please click the links below for more information about the steps - especially Step 1!
