In the midst of the COVID-19 outbreak, Axie Infinity has become a popular way for Filipinos to pass time and earn money. This is thanks to the game’s ‘play-to-earn’ model. Players are able to pay their bills and put food on their tables despite losing their jobs during the economic crisis brought on by the pandemic. Tournaments like the FTX GalAxie Cup have contributed to this with their prize money offers for winners.
For the first time ever, a live Axie Infinity Creator Cup will be held in Quezon City, Philippines. This Axie cup will be a live studio event with eight content creators battling it out. The prize is 200 AXS or $26,000 worth of prizes. This is more than 1.3 million Philippine Pesos.
