Irreversible tokens were one of the most popular sectors in the cryptocurrency market from the beginning of the year to March, but like the nature of the crypto sector, NFTs fell dramatically in April when hype and sky-high fees on Ethereum (ETH) faded by the network preventing buyers and sellers from interact with protocols.

The high commission issue eventually led to some projects such as Axie Infinity (AXS) and Smooth Love Potion (SLP) being moved to other networks or adopting level 2 solutions as a way to reduce costs. This move, together with the sharp fall in ETH petrol prices in the last two weeks, may be one of the reasons for the strong growth in AXS and SLP in the last week.

The most important development for AXS and SLP in the last two weeks has been the complete launch of Ronin Phase 2, which required platform users to transfer playable Axies characters, along with AXS, SLP and ETH tokens to Ronin’s side series to continue interacting with the protocol. …

Ronin is an Ethereum side chain that was originally announced in June 2020 and is designed specifically for the Axie Infinity community to support scalability and smoother gaming for a large number of users.

The second blow to the Axie community was the announcement on May 3 that the digital landowner and cryptocurrency group Flying Falcon had donated money to the sponsorship program, created by the open gaming community, Yield Guild Games.

The move helped draw attention to the fact that Axie Infinity is more than just a collector’s item, but rather a growing community that is able to support its members and provide a steady return on investment.

The driving force behind the AXS code and the Axie Infinity ecosystem has been building for several months awaiting the transition to the Ronin side series.
