This Week in the Axie Infinity Market

In this edition, we look at the past 7 days of the Axie market and recap the highlights from one of the biggest platforms in the history of NFT gaming. 

Over the past week, Axie Infinity overcame a gargantuan amount of server issues as they grew past 500,000 players. The number of players was so intense that they had to hire new engineers just to maintain and expand their current system. Now is a good opportunity to look back on the market and spot trends through a period of time when players couldn’t even participate. Too many players is a great problem to have for an industry that many gamers haven’t even heard of. As more players, money and attention pour into Axie Infinity, we will be able to track the markets and see if it trickles into other NFT games. It’s also possible that Axie Infinity can stay ahead of the pack and continue to dominate the NFT gaming landscape. 

Market Volume:

As of this writing, over $137,000,000 has been traded over the past 7 days—shoutout ONE37pm. To contextualize this figure with something crazy that happened this week, this sum could have bought 4 seats to space with Jeff Bezos. Good luck getting the song Rocket Man out of your head now. 

The market continues to follow the trend of seeing Axie transfer volume per hour going up since before the beginning of the summer. Higher transfers per hour can be correlated to more players joining and getting the requisite three Axies to start playing. Speaking of needing to get three to start, it’s important to look at the floor prices. As people breed and flip the Axies, they continue to list them for sale, pushing the prices down. The absolute cheapest or lowest price of Axies is what we call the floor. The lowest price(s) is called the floor—groundbreaking, I know. 

One interesting trend this week is that the floor price of Axies appears to be dropping. It has dropped to approximately $250 an Axie, with some even breaking below $200. This is much different from just a few weeks ago when the lowest price was in the $350s, but this is by no means a prediction of where the floor will go. 

Notable Axie Sales:

While no Axies were sold for a massive figure like $800,000 this week, there were still some notable sales in the past 24 hours alone. 

Several were sold for over $10,000. 


In order to breed your Axies, you need to spend the in-game currency SLP, which can be earned in-game or bought/sold on crypto markets like Binance. 

While the price has dipped since its all-time high of $0.41, SLP has enjoyed a nice rally back

Another barometer of the Axie economy is their governance token AXS. Users who hold these tokens can vote to shape the direction of the game. Also, they can stake this token to vote and earn more AXS. 

Over the past week, AXS has tumbled from $28 to $16, but has recovered back to $25

<script src=””></script> <coingecko-coin-price-chart-widget currency=”usd” coin-id=”axie-infinity” locale=”en” height=”300″></coingecko-coin-price-chart-widget> 

Land Sales:

The floor for Axie lands continues to increase with the lowest land as of this writing at $7,800. This marks an interesting trend, one in which the price per Axie decreases but the lands slowly creep upward. It’ll be interesting to watch once land has a use case later this year.

Overall, the Axie market has continued to grow commensurately with the game, with no signs of slowing down. It’ll be interesting to see what happens after the servers get expanded. 

This has been this week’s Axie Infinity market recap. If you want to see more Axie content, be sure to follow along on ONE37PM!

NFT Trading Card Game Splinterlands Reaches 100,000 Accounts

Blockchain gaming is red hot. With games like Axie Infinity seeing immense growth over the past few months and sports-based platforms like Sorare beginning to see similar escalation, it’s hard to keep track of every blockchain game on the market. Splinterlands has been around since 2018 and just hit a huge landmark: 100,000 accounts.

Splinterlands, like with many other blockchain games, capitalizes on elements of traditional/physical trading card games like Magic the Gathering, but incorporates the additional mechanical offerings of NFT technology. Traditional card games like Pokémon or Yu-Gi-Oh! previously relied on physical cards for trading and distribution, but with the recent explosion of blockchain tech and Web3.0, now every transaction is completely recorded on a public and immutable ledger.

Splinterlands is worth checking out for NFT gamers who like the earning potential, but also a fun opportunity for fans of traditional card-trading games to bring their interest to a digital platform. Players vie for a limited reward pool of the in-game crypto token, Dark Energy Crystals (DEC), in addition to scarce and potentially valuable NFTs earned from daily quests and bi-weekly season rewards.

The continued success of Splinterlands reflects an overall growth of the plat-to-earn style of NFT games we’ve seen gaining popularity in the first half of 2021. Over 25% of Splinterlands players have purchased the Summoner’s Spellbook upgrade, which grants the ability to own their cards in perpetuity and potentially earn while playing. In a recent press release, the game’s co-founder and CEO Dr. Jesse “Aggroed” Reich, said: “This is really an exceptional moment for the community. We’re overwhelmed by positive feedback and the community is growing every day,” adding: “By supporting us and playing our game, they’re empowering themselves, which in turn lets us keep providing them value and rewards in every way we can. It’s pretty sweet.”

NFT games like Splinterlands have encouraged a higher retention rate from their players because of the growth potential and financial possibilities allowed by the game. The game has an incredibly active blogging platform for its community,, which sees roughly 100 community-generated posts each day. “We always put the community first. They are our most important assets, so we want to empower them by ensuring that they reap value and rewards of their own,” said Reich.

With the recent announcement of surpassing 100,000 accounts—and the amount of players invested in the game already—Splinterlands is a great game to dip your toes into if you’ve been curious about the world of blockchain gaming. Play at Splinterlands, and check out the community on Discord and Twitter.

Grasshopper Farms is a Unique Enjin Game You Need to Know About

These days NFTs are popping into everyday conversation in the same way denim jackets invaded the 90s. However, few people are as aware of the applications of NFT migration into gaming. These gamers can take their assets across games and can even earn money by playing. The hybrid of gaming and NFTs has lead to a new entirely genre: 

NFT games.  

What makes a good NFT game? Is it the ability to earn, or is it the ability to showcase what this technology is capable of? I would argue something that combines both of these elements makes a fantastic game.

Meet Grasshopper Farms – a Telegram chat-based game that incorporates a deep level of control and customization. The website sums it up best:  

“Collect quirky, community-inspired Grasshoppers, engage them in missions, and battle to become the best Farmer in the land!”  

It is delightfully simple, but there is a ton to do. Designed as a way for players on mobile and PC to be able to play with and against each other, Grasshopper Farms lets players try all new mechanics and revised applications of what’s actually possible in a game. But at its  core, this is a relaxing game that allows players to send their hoppers on quests and return for a reward. A few simple clicks separate players from a world of engagement with world bosses, guilds (called swarms), and a myriad of other opportunities for players to gather rewards just for being engaged.

In comparison to other blockchain-based games, this one has a minimal time requirement. You send out your hoppers and check back after the quest has finished. This is a game built for players who are always on the go and can’t invest 80 hours into a regular console game.  

Grasshopper Farms opens up the doors for blockchain integration in a host of everyday applications, from Twitter to discord to even twitch! This bot and similar aspects can be integrated into several different systems using their bot API.  

While the game is easy to use and easier to pick up, it is overflowing with new and up to date content.  

A ton of content has been added to the game over the past few years. It is no surprise that, in terms of daily active users, only one other Enjin game can claim more, and these grasshoppers are only getting more useful over time. The game lets players grow their influence and their farm to get better resources and hoppers to band together to become one of  the best swarms in-game. It also boasts a ton of different gameplay mechanics and features, such as the aforementioned swarms, the hopper version of guilds. It has assets  and buildings that can be upgraded to improve your chances of finding rare loot and resources. The boss battles also allow players across the world to team up and take down challenging obstacles, demonstrating the might of NFTs and what it means for a game to be decentralized. 

The flexibility and ease has made this one of my favorite Enjin based games, and I am looking forward to what comes next. I’ve heard rumors of a narwhal hopper being seen in the game.

How to Mint NFTs with Enjin’s Jumpnet

Walt Disney

It’s kind of fun to do the impossible.

What if I told you that game item design is no longer reserved to departments at major studios? Meet item minting via Enjin on Jumpnet, which launched yesterday for the general public.

This new NFT creation platform lets you design your own collectibles that can be implemented into the games you love, or just traded amongst your favorite community. 

Early adopters—like myself—were having a blast minting items and sending them out like there’s no tomorrow. And the general public can finally get in on the action! The Enjin team was polishing the finer points to release their new platform and finally released the functionality to the general public yesterday.

In order to properly introduce you to this new system, here is a step-by-step guide for how to mint items on Jumpnet. Items minted on Jumpnet can be sent to others that have an Enjin wallet without the gas fees that hound ETH users. 

This is what you’ll need to start – think of it like an ingredients list. 

JENJ. This is like an Enjin coin that’s on Jumpnet. It has a 1:1 conversion rate and its still used the same way Enjin is used. It infuses into Enjin items, giving them a backing AKA a base value. A big difference is items with JENJ don’t cost gas fees and can be sent between peers almost immediately. You’ll need a handful of these to create items. 

An Enjin Wallet. This is the place to trade for and store your NFTs & JENJ. You’ll need to link a wallet in order to proceed with the minting process. 

This tutorial is going to make the following assumptions about your readiness:

● The public access to both JENJ and Jumpnet minting is live 

● You have linked your wallet with a JENJ balance, as seen in image one below (red circle)

OKAY Let’s get minting! 

In this process, we will be reviewing how I made my Emerald Narwhals – this little guy:


1) Click create asset. Shown in Image 1 (red circle)


2) You’re now on the Create Blockchain Asset tab. 

I used shapes to briefly explain what to place in these boxes 

Star – Desired name of your asset

Diamond – Maximum supply, this becomes important because higher supply means less required backing value per asset. 

Triangle – This is the reserve value per asset. Meaning, if someone chose to destroy one of your items this would be how much liquid JENJ would get out. AKA if they melted an item. 

Octagon – This represents the return you would get if someone melted an item. You can only choose up to 50%. 


Rectangle – This is where you choose an asset type. You can do an NFT, which is a unique game item, or a fungible token (i.e a currency). SwoleCoin, that I used for transfer fees, is an FT. 

Supply model: I am not going too deep into this one because I think this is a great example of using the question marks. If you hover your cursor over the small question marks, they will go into more detail about options . 

Finally, in the circle is the transfer fee. As the item creator you can dictate that sender/sellers have to pay you a transfer fee whenever your item changes hands. I chose to use my own currency because I feel it’d be easier to attain than trying to use JENJ/ENJ, which is what’s normally used for transfers. I’ve actually removed the transfer fee for my Narwhals, but just wanted to showcase how you could do it.

When you have filled the field with your preferred options, double check to make sure that’s what you selected. Even I made a mistake on my first run through doing this. Then hit create asset in the bottom right hand corner. 

3) The system will send you back to the asset screen and it’ll send a request to your linked wallet to accept the item creation request. We refresh the screen and then – Bam, there it is! Somebody call Emeril. 

Go to your created asset and hit edit. Unlike the other information we have already done, this can be edited before, during, and after the items are already minted. 


You will have your name, the description (which you can come back and add later), and finally, you can add your asset image as it will be displayed in the wallet and on the web browser blockchain explorer Enjinx. You’ll save that and confirm the request in your Enjin wallet.


Last, but not least, hit mint to travel to the mint screen. 

Quick note – you can only mint 100 at a time, but you can mint them to any wallet. Lets say a community member won a contest, you can mint up to 100 items right to their wallet! 

I hope you’ve enjoyed this crash course, and my NFTs are available for reference if needed.

Enjin Integrates NFTs Into Minecraft with MyMetaverse’s Meta City

For many people hopping into the NFT game, the natural question becomes, “what’s next?” Outside of the world of investing and trading the digital collectibles, there are substantial use cases for the technology which will allow numerous innovations in gaming. Earlier this week, the Enjin-adopter MyMetaverse announced the ability for Minecraft players to buy and sell real estate NFTs in their server, Meta City. Although other metaverses have been around and integrated NFT tech, by integrating NFT capabilities into an already incredibly popular game, MyMetaverse is demonstrating the potential of NFT technology for exchanging assets in already established games.

A lot of people already view Minecraft as one of the most popular metaverses around, but by adding blockchain-certified ownership over real estate, players can now own their plots permanently and trade them on decentralized exchanges. Additionally, the implementation of real estate NFTs is a direct answer to criticism of NFTs having a negative impact on the environment, because Meta City: Minecraft NFTs are carbon-neutral. Players also have the ability to customize their land titles, which alters the NFT name and they can upgrade and augment based on their achievements in game.

“We are doing the opposite of what people expected us to do with our real estate NFTs,” said Simon Kertonegoro, CEO of MyMetaverse. “Instead of charging large sums of money for them, we’re giving them out for free, instead of creating NFTs that represent content that anyone can view, these unlock special benefits for owners, and instead of minting NFTs that are static, we have created dynamic NFTs that evolve alongside the owners’ in-game experience.”

As of launch earlier this week, there are 70 Meta City Real Estate NFTs that can be earned in the server’s new lobby called Meta City. Players can earn a centralized game currency called Capital Coins by fighting Minecraft mobs (mobile entities) like zombies and skeletons. Players can then use their Capital Coins to purchase NFT real estate without leaving the game.

MyMetaverse is just the beginning of a whole new world of gaming, one in which in-game assets can be verified on the blockchain, allowing for a much more expansive market than one tied to a game’s specific ecosystem. Enjin has made history with similar mechanics in games like Lost Relics, but by incorporating the tech into an already ubiquitous game like Minecraft, we really get to see how this tech will change the gaming world as a whole. Imagine a world where the assets in every video game you play can be taken out of the game’s world and moved into other games, or just simply traded on a decentralized exchange. That’s the future of blockchain gaming: a truly open marketplace. I can’t wait.

NFT Gaming is Opening Up New Monetization Opportunities Worldwide

The ability to apply for a lifelong career and just coast to retirement to live a long, happy life has become more and more inaccessible in recent years. No other occurrence in our society has showcased this more than the current pandemic. Jobs, travel, and even entire communities have come grinding to a halt. Some people have the luxury of working from home, but others struggle to make ends meet in the current health crisis. 

They say necessity is the mother of invention. In this case, it was the cause of innovation. There is a place where gaming NFTs have become the lifeblood of an entire neighborhood in the Philippines. The game Axie Infinity has allowed the people locked down due to COVID-19 to make enough to survive, and even thrive, because of a video game. The game has become so popular that a majority of the player base now hails from the country.

This case is not a one-off outlier. Axie Infinity is a great game for people to get into NFTs and a play-to-earn ecosystem. In fact, I personally was able to pay for my wedding and my honeymoon just by selling the 3 Axies I bought way back in 2018. 

You know I definitely flaunted that detail to everyone in my family who thought this was fake. Except for grandma—she thinks this stuff is cool. She doesn’t understand it, but she thinks it’s cool. Maybe go hug your grandma. 

Anyways, instead of flipping digital collectibles, these people have been able to earn currency by playing and converting the in-game earned currency to the currency pesos, the main currency in the Philippines. The reason why this is so powerful is that the rewards people are getting are better than the income available to them. The $400 a month the people interviewed above are netting through Axie is more than many of them make in a month normally. 

This demonstrates the opportunities that are available with player-driven economies and play to earn ecosystems created by NFTs. This is not the first time in history that a small city has an unlikely/uncommon form of an economy. While known for Margaritaville and Jimmy Buffet, Key West down in Florida was once the richest city per capita in the United States due to the era of salvaging shipwrecks and repurposing the cargo of ships that hit the nearby reef. The town prospered for decades as they were able to create an entire economy from this uncanny form of income. 

We are opportunistic at our core. Some people sacrifice their opportunities for comfort, and that’s okay! But for those who want to adapt or get ahead of the curve, this is a great example of what NFTs and earn-to-play games can enable. There are other examples of games like these, such as Lost Relics—a game where some players have grabbed loot items worth thousands of dollars on the open market. This is very early, but get excited! 

If you want to learn more about NFTs, I will be doing a show live on Youtube and a few other platforms where I will go over the news of the day and showcase cool NFT games and items. You can receive reminders and notifications for the show by clicking here, subscribing to the channel, and clicking the bell for notifications.

If you want to get into NFTs, but don’t know what to buy, no worries! I am doing a free Narwhal giveaway to get you started. You can go here and earn entries.

Good luck!

Krool Toys Releases Dogémon NFT Game

The collectible space is ever-evolving. With the recent explosion of the NFT world, collectors are becoming more acutely aware of the role of ownership in collection as opposed to just owning something for some specific utility. Krool Toys, for example, creates games available to the general public, but releases a corresponding physical game cartridge. You can play the game without the cartridge, but you still want that sweet, sweet cartridge.

The NY and Bombay based creative studio has produced limited run collectibles and video games for Megan Thee Stallion, Lil Uzi Vert, Rod Wave, Rico Nasty and Gunna. All of the games were playable to everyone, but released alongside a corresponding collectible, whether it was a toy or a video game cartridge.

Earlier today, Krool launched one of their most exciting projects yet: Dogémon. The meme-ified game is a parody of Pokémon, but invokes all of the biggest happenings in the red hot crypto world of 2021. Players have the opportunity to play as Elon Musk and lead Doge on his first adventure through 4 epic battles against opponents such as GME Kid, Jeff Bezos, Bernie Sanders and Janet Yellen before the doge makes his way to the SpaceX rocket and blasts off into the atmosphere. The game is available to play online, but only select NFT holders will get the chance to win the physical Game Boy cartridges, which are compatible with any Gameboy/Gameboy Advance/Gameboy Advance SP console.
Krool Toys

The drop is being orchestrated on Rarible, and each NFT purchase comes with some corresponding perks:

  • 3D cartridge video NFT
  • Transparent PNG sprite character pack
  • Lottery raffle for a chance to win the physical Game Boy cartridge

Immutable and ‘Guild of Guardians’ Partners Up With Ubisoft

The creatives at Immutable and Stepico Games have been hard at work on a brand new entry into the growing blockchain gaming space – Guild of Guardians. The game publishing and developing duo are looking to simultaneously deliver a quality mobile action RPG and provide players with an opportunity to turn their love for gaming into beneficial NFTs. By the looks of it, interest is at an all-time high for the 2022 release – Guild of Guardians has managed to garner 130,000+ pre-registered gamers thus far. Besides using Immutable X for gas free trading, Guild of Guardians has another major component that’s sure to increase its visibility and guarantee its future success.

It was announced that Guild of Guardians has been selected to be a part of the sixth season of the Ubisoft Entrepreneurs Labs program. For those not in the know, that aforementioned Ubisoft venture is led by Ubisoft’s Strategic Innovation Lab and is mainly an effort meant to support startups that are creating the types of projects that will push the entertainment industry ever further into a beneficial future. Like past seasons from Ubisoft’s program, the sixth season is making a strong effort towards supporting startups that deal specifically with blockchain technology. Immutable’s previous triumphs in the space and its ongoing work on Guild of Guardians clearly earned the attention of the AAA-gaming publisher/developer, so it comes as no surprise that both companies are now working with each other. Ubisoft’s massive resources should make it easier for Guild of Guardians to achieve mainstream success and make the sub-genre of blockchain games less of a curiosity & more of a recognized gaming spectrum.

Judging by the comments made by individuals from both companies, there’s a lot of excitement regarding the continued development of Guild of Guardians. “We are very proud to be welcoming all of these talented startups for the 6th season of the Ubisoft Entrepreneurs Lab,” said Virginie Haas, Chief Studios Operating Officer at Ubisoft, and sponsor of this sixth season. “This year’s program will be a fantastic opportunity to work with highly innovative startups on topics that matter, now more than ever.”

Guild of Guardians game lead Derek Lau also expressed his excitement regarding the announcement of this newfound partnership. “Our team is thrilled to be part of the prestigious Ubisoft Entrepreneurs Lab program,” he noted. “We share many values with Ubisoft around the power of positive entertainment, and the potential of open world economies. Blockchain and NFTs in gaming is an area that every top gaming studio in the world is currently looking at. We’re excited to share our learnings with Ubisoft and to get their unique perspective on how we can grow Guild of Guardians into a title with significant mainstream success.”

This isn’t the only fruitful partnership that Immutable’s Guild of Guardians has entered into. In a move that evokes images of the scenarios presented in Ready, Player One, characters that are created in Guild of Guardians will be able to be transported to a special Metaverse in conjunction with The Sandbox. The Sandbox, which is a player-created world that’s contained on the Ethereum blockchain, will offer a shared virtual space for custom characters from both games’ universes. With Ubisoft’s unwavering support, virtual world link up with The Sandbox, and overwhelmingly positive player response, Guild of Guardians has all the tools needed to excel in the blockchain gaming space and beyond.

What is Blockchain Gaming?

Blockchain gaming is gaming that utilizes true item ownership from the same technology that lies at the core of cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum. It is an earth-shattering innovation for players who have previously accepted that their items will be forever stuck in games. Normally, players are accustomed to wall gardens that prevent players from moving assets freely in and out. So blockchain operates more like a battering ram or the kool-aid man to players who have been staring up at these Attack On Titan-sized walls waiting for something to shake up their world. 

These new systems bring exciting developments, minus the titans. Blockchain gaming is letting players verify that their items are rare and letting them send anything to anyone. This new capability exists without having to jump through hoops or sell your entire account to move just one measly item the buyer wants. This enables a new player-driven economy where games don’t have to worry about new releases or shady DLCs, and can instead make new content that is tradable and retains players. Players are so used to game-hopping to scratch an itch that they routinely buy new games every other month trying to chase the trends and the hype. If they can add hours of gameplay to their favorite games while spending more money in-game, everybody wins. This becomes especially beneficial for gamers when systems like Enjin allow creators to add transfer fees to monetize the trading done in and out of the game.

NFT peeps have started to flock to blockchain gaming/NFT gaming because they can do something gamers have wanted to do for decades: they can move and sell items. They’re not looking to do this because to make a quick buck, but because they love their hobby and don’t want to make it feel like a toxic codependent relationship with these games. It can be frustrating to throw buckets of money, time, and energy into your favorite game only to feel like there are not enough things to do, the server goes down, the game is no longer live, etc. Some gamers also find themself backed into a corner, competing against people who simply spend more money than them in-game, and therefore they’ll never be able to beat them.

Take it from me, NFTs and blockchain gaming are a fun, exciting topic. While there is work to be done in earning these items, there is also money to be found. This comes not from the desperation of people who have too much money to spend, but from people who see the value from the time put into gaming.

Before you know it, your next big purchase could be supported by something you sold from a video game. Imagine what you could pay for if you could monetize the time you play video games. Check out this video of Simon from Enjin using money he made from Lost Relics to buy his groceries:

I myself have just paid for my wedding this Wednesday by selling NFTs. There are different strains of NFTs and blockchain gaming so stay tuned for the second volume of this series.
