Sky Mavis announced this Wednesday the release of Axie Infinity: Origins on the App Store. The iOS app is only available in Latin America and Asia at the moment.
Origins” will be able to attract many new users who use an iphone smartphone.
Axie Infinity, created by Sky Mavis, is a “Play-to-Earn” game that combines cryptocurrencies and NFT.
Axie Infinity: Origins is now available in ten Asian and South American countries, including Argentina, Colombia, Peru, Mexico, Indonesia and Malaysia.
In December, we launched a feature-limited version of Origins on the Malaysian Google PlayStore. This gave our team the opportunity to test and improve the game before extending it to other countries. Today, we’ve taken a similar approach with the App Store,” explained Sky Mavis, hinting that the game would soon arrive in the App store of other countries.
The Vietnamese startup, which suffered one of the biggest crypto hacks in history last spring with the hacking of its Ronin bridge, believes that the arrival of its new free-to-play, NFT-based entertainment on the App store will boost its adoption.
“Don’t forget that 70% of community members discover Axie through a friend or family member, so it’s important for the growth of our movement that Axie is as shareable as possible,” she wrote.
The publisher of the blockchain game is now hoping for strong user growth among iphone mobile owners.
Earlier this year, its Ronin deck adopted a delegated proof-of-stake mechanism and opened up to new gaming studios.
Axie Infinity’s native token price surged following the game’s listing. Over 24 hours, AXS recorded an increase of almost 10% to around 7.5 dollars.
