Axie Infinity is one of the most polished Blockchain game I’ve seen.
You can buy digital pets, (Axie’s), to battle, breed and many other things yet to be released.
They have an extremely active and passionate community well run by the Dev team.
Earlier this year, they held their first ever ‘Land sale’ where Axie owners can complete quests and let their Axie’s live and thrive in their own Digital world.
There were a bunch of different land types available, the closer you get to the centre, the more expensive land was.
You could buy one of a three different chests which contained 1 land piece in a random co-ordinate and a bunch of items.
I decided to go in heavy with Savannah chests. There were only a limited amount so I knew they’d sell out early which such a cheap entry point.
I bought 100 pieces at around 4.6 ETH
Doesn’t look like much but it’s quite hard to get 100 joined pieces of land also connected to a road and close to a Chimera spawn point! (Purple).
It took about 6-8 months for land values to creep up until I finally found a buyer for the whole lot for 11 Eth.
Around 2.4x profit.
By this time, the cheapest land you could buy from another player was around 0.1 – 0.12 Eth so it was about market value.
Sometimes flips take a longer time as you have to wait till the assets get more scarce but this one was worth it as I learned more about the game and community by holding and participating in this pre-sale.
