Introducing Axie Buzz - A Place to Chat, Connect, Create, and Earn by Sharing your Passion For Axie Infinity!

To the moon!

We've been greatly impressed by Axie Infinity, the core principles of financial freedom on which the founders created the game upon, and its incredible growth and success. With well over three hundred thousand players and counting, Axie Infinity took the blockchain world by surprise and quickly became the single most popular NFT game in the metaverse.

We believe that Axie has the potential to positively impact the lives of hundreds of millions of people across the globe and we want to be a part of this global revolution.

Mission statement

While there are countless tools to help improve our gaming experience, we weren't able to find the one thing we were missing all along, the social aspect. A place to hang out, chat/connect with other players, read and share useful information, and earn some extra SLP by in the process.

This is where we've decided to step in.

We're thrilled to announce that we've finally made this social aspect of the game possible by creating Axie players (Lunacians) their own dedicated community, Axie Buzz! We believe that this is a missing link necessary to help connect, grow, and further financially empower players across the globe. We're making this possible by giving Lunacians the ability to earn by creating and sharing game-related content, connecting and engaging with other players, and a lot more!

Members of the Axie Buzz community will be rewarded for every interesting, useful, and noteworthy piece of content they share, in form of either $HIVE cryptocurrency, one of the two Axie-based tokens ($SLP and $AXS) or even Axie NFT's themselves!

Appart from being a place to connect and engage with other players, Hive's Axie community - Axie Buzz is a place where Lunacians can learn how to become better at the game, and to earn an additional income from something other than playing the game. After all, they've only got so much energy to play within any given day. With Axie Buzz, players can fill their free time with other Axie-related, income-generating activities.

The concept behind Axie Buzz was originally inspired by the founders goals of providing an innovative way of creating economic freedom and changing the world for the better. Our goal is to help further increase this economic liberation through a creative application of Hive's post to earn ecosystem, where Lunacians are rewarded for creating content about Axie Infinity.

Post to Earn 🤑


Earning crypto by sharing content, and being able to effortlessly chat and connect with other players are Axie Buzz's main features. They were only made possible through the use of the Hive blockchain. By using Hive, we can enable players to participate in a few additional rewarding activities while waiting for their energy to replenish.

Axie Buzz community members can earn by

  • Producing content about the game 🤯

On the Hive blockchain (which is what you're using now) our upvotes (likes) are worth real money in form of $HIVE cryptocurrency.

Meaning that, if you're able to produce valuable content that other users enjoy reading and upvote, you'll be able to earn additional income by posting about your Axie Infinity journey. The better, more interesting, or informative, your articles are, the more you'll be able to earn from posting. Our goal is for Lunacians to be able to earn another couple hundred SLP daily, practically doubling their income and further financially empowering them while providing a fun and useful service.

We've partnered with @ocd curation project that will help us deliver the upvotes to select contributions that we find to be in line with the kind of content we'd like to encourage.

While good quality and noteworthy content will always be rewarded, hateful, abusive, spammy, copy-paste, or any other kind of malicious or low-effort/quality content, will not get any rewards from Axie Buzz.

NOTE: Never post about asking for a scholarship, unless we specifically say so. Scholarship applications will be managed by filling Scholarship Applications. We'll release more information about joining a scholarship after we finish another couple rounds of breeding.

  • Participating in content creation contests 🏆

We'll host writing, video, graphic, meme creation contests in order to attract new members and further incentivize current members of the community to produce high-quality, Axie-related content we'll all enjoy reading, viewing, and interacting with.

  • Participating in in-game contests 🏆🎮🏆

In the Axie Buzz Community, we will reward the best of the best for their in-game achievements such as PvP rank and PvE max Axie lvl and campaign progress. Even though your current rank might not result in an in-game season reward as only a few players out of the three hundred thousand that play, get rewarded at the end of the season. By participating in Axie Buzz's contests, you'll have a much higher chance of earning based on your in-game achievements.

  • Joining a Scholarship Program 🏆🏆🏆

There are countless people who want to start playing the game but can't afford to spend a thousand dollars or more, to buy their first team. For that reason, we'll start an Axie Buzz Scholarship Program where we'll give our community members their first Axies to play with. A portion of their earnings will be funneled to buy/breed more Axies so that we can quickly increase the number of people that can join the Scholarship Program.

  • Coming soon 🧐

As our community grows, we'll work on adding more activities our members can participate in to earn either $SLP, $AXS, $HIVE, NFT's, or Hive Power.

Considering the fact that our target audience has most likely never heard about the Hive blockchain as most Axie players are still unaware of the amazing opportunities Hive presents, we'll give you a quick run-down and some basic information to help guide you through the onboarding process. This part might be a little intimidating at first as it's a lot of information to take in at once, but if you're able to consistently get your daily quota, you'll be able to learn how to use Hive.

What is Hive?


Hive is a fast, scalable and feeless, blockchain.

Meaning, that transactions are lightning-fast, and free, while users enjoy a seamless user experience. As aforementioned, Hive upvotes translate into cryptocurrency. The more $HIVE tokens a user has staked in his wallet, the more his upvote is worth. When a user casts an upvote, his voting mana (Hive Power) is drained, reducing the value of his next vote. Don't worry about this as your mana will replenish fully over time.

Every user can give 10 full (100%) upvotes (or decide to fractionalize them i.e. 5 x 20% upvote == 1 x 100% upvote) per day and have 100% voting mana after 24 hours have passed.

Voting on Hive looks something like this.


Hive Posts About Axie Infinity.png

In this example, a user casts a (1.) 40% upvote using a (2.) voting slider, resulting in an (3.) upvote valued at $0.296 or close to 2 SLP per 40% upvote at the time of writing this article.

To encourage curators (users who upvote content) each upvote returns 50% of its value back to the curator in form of curation rewards. Thus, even users who don't have a knack for content creation can still earn an income by skillfully curating great content on Hive.

By creating content and upvoting content of other users, you will receive rewards in Hive Power (staked Hive) and $HBD - Hive's stable coin. Hive Power can either be left powered up (staked) to increase the value of your upvotes, or it can be unstaked and sold to fuel your Axie addiction.

View by logging into your Hive account through PeakD

The wallet section as seen on PeakD, is where users are able to send and receive funds from. PeakD.com is our preferred way to interact with the Hive blockchain because it provides a clean, graphically appealing interface, that is quite easy to understand and use.

In order to efficiently manage funds on Hive, users must understand the three tokens used on Hive.

Hive Tokens - ($HIVE)

  • unstaked (liquid) Hive Power - doesn't incur a yield but is easily transferable

Hive Power (Staked $HIVE)

  • Staked (powered up) $HIVE - increases upvote value and the amount earned by curating content up to 10 - 25% APR per year depending on skill in picking the right content to vote on. Hive Power also incurs an additional, automatically compounding 3.37% APR per year but isn't easily transferable.
  • Hive Power takes 13 weeks to fully unstake, returning 1/13 $HIVE per week.

Hive Backend Dollar ($HBD)

  • Hive's stable coin pegged to 1$

How to create a Hive account?

Visit PeakD account creation page, input your desired username and email address and follow the instructions sent to you in the registration email.

IMPORTANT: Store your password in a safe place because if you lose it, no one can recover your account and all funds stored within the account will be lost.

How to access the Hive blockchain?

Now that you've got an account, it's time to decide which interface suits you best. Hive has a few different interfaces all of which provide the same services - the ability to read, publish, and curate content. It's completely on you to decide which one you like best.

You can chose from:

Take some time to explore them before choosing your preferred interface.

What kind of content to publish?


As we're a community dedicated to Axie Infinity, the only content we will be actively rewarding is Axie-related content. Creators have absolute freedom to choose their preferred content format. It doesn't matter if it's videos, fan art, memes, articles, tutorials, live streams, etc. it just needs to be about Axies. The more effort creators put into their content, the more they'll be able to earn as anything posted within the community will be reviewed and rewarded based on perceived quality.

This is big news due to both giving the new users (like me) who have wished they were playing the game, but as you mention in the scholarship part, are unable to pay the big amount to start playing, but also to give the dedicated community a solid platform to blog on and earn while sharing the game and all of HIVE's aspects with everyone else.

So count me in, going to subscribe and hope to someday get into the scholarship program and join the Axie Infinity fun!

Glad you like the concept.

We hope we'll be able to get you a team to play with in the coming weeks.

Have your eyes peeled on our future posts not to miss out, because we feel that the competition to get into the scholarship is going to be crazy, as people have already shown a lot of interest in joining.

I just started researching about Axie Infinity 2 months ago, I love the clean format of this vlog and the preciseness of the information, Would love to participate in your scholarship program if given the chance, But so far I love the effort your took to create this group, I'm hoping for gameplays in this group soon, Would love your thoughts on new metas and updates, Cheers to everyone and God Bless.

Welcome to Hive Seth! As a new account owner, the amount of posts/comments you'll be able to publish is going to be restricted until you get enouhg Hive Power. If you'll want to do more content creation and run into the inability to post, let us know and we'll delegate you some HP!

Thanks for the feedback, we'll start releasing tutorials shortly. Until then, you can browse the community for more game-related content.

Cheers!

Awesome to finally have a dedicated Axie community on Hive. I keep seeing a lot of players wanting to get into the game but not being able to due to the costs of Axie's or not finding a scholarship program, I hope Hive can assist them in gathering some funds by posting and engaging about Axie or other games and in that way being able to fund their own starting kit over time and continue earning crypto alongside SLP.

Looking forward to curating in this community!

Thank you for the encouraging words Acidyo.

Spot on! We truly believe that Hive has the potential to both help create new players, and provide current players with an additional source of income.

This is excellent news, I have a couple of days looking for scholarships because I created an account a long time ago and I think I lost it I do not remember, so I have to start from zero, but I saw that the costs are too high for me, so I'll be waiting, I love these games.

If you'll still be looking for a scholarship, you'll get a chance to apply for our mentorship in a week or two when we get our first few batches of Axies hatched and ready to go!

Excellent, I love what you are doing, it sounds very promising, it's amazing that you have come here just when I have been looking for help :)

I'm going to log in to your discord server to keep an eye out, I'm already in the queue lol

By the way, I tried to download the game to the computer and when I install it, it does not allow me because it says that the version is not compatible, I have Windows 10 64 bits 8gb ram.

Your specs should be more than enough to run the game smoothly. Try again using this link: https://axieinfinity.com/downloads/axie_infinity-latest-windows.zip

"to find a version compatible with your equipment, please contact the software's advertiser".

Strange.... Have you tried installing it on a mobile device?

I'm trying to do that

that excellent news ... I have begun to read of the Axies it is seen that it is a wonderful world. Having a community channeled for them will help a lot those who want to join (like me xD) in addition to learning from players with more experience 💕

It truly is a wonderful world, and I can attest to that because ever since I first started playing the game, it has been nothing short of a blessing! Truly magnificent what you can achieve by playing the game, and it's only just getting started with a lot too look forward to like land gameplay release, battles V2, upgradable body parts, DEX, etc.

it's Axie time!

I am very interested in the scholarships, I hope to get one when they are offered. In the meantime I will be watching the content of this community to get the hang of the game.

We'll be happy to take your application into consideration when we open up the scholarship program! Have you ever participated in a scholarship before or have you just found out about the game recently?

I haven't actually been on a scholarship but I've been reading and watching videos about the game for a while to inform myself. Technically I'm new, but I'm willing to learn, plus I think I'm pretty good with games of this style.

Feedback from the July 1st Hive Power Up Day - ATH Volume record!

FINALLY someone did it hehehe!

Let's gooooooooooooooooo

Someone had to do it! 😁

I don't play the game yet, but I will create artworks someday and post them here.

Would love to see your Axie fanart! Be sure to tag us when you decide to post about it so we don't miss it.

I have wanted to get into this but the biggest factor is the high eth gas fees that kill the replay ability for me

There are no more gas fees with Ronin!

Can i use binance smart chain wallet?

Nah, you have to use Ronin.

Great idea setting this up! Check my recent posts for more axie content ;-)

Sweet! Be sure to post here next time you decide to write about Axies!

That is cool. I would love to try playing it and then invest later on. All the best and thanks to @raymondspeaks for encouraging all.

We'd love to give you and others a shot at playing the game!

Be on the lookout for our future posts or visit our discord not to miss the announcement :D

This is great! I want to learn and earn as well! Reblogged for reading later. :)

I am interested in the scholarship. I've known the game for about 3 weeks now and have yet to join a scholarship program. I hope to be part Hive, Axie and Crypto community.

With the help of my daughter I created an account but when I saw the costs I had to put the brakes on, I hope I can get a scholarship. I have already been reading about this game. Thanks for the information.

You are right. Axies are getting more expensive as each day passes by making it difficult for new people to get into the game other than being lucky enough to get a scholarship program.

Join our discord and follow us around the blockchain because we'll be releasing more info about our scholarship program today!

Sure! Thank you very much I will be there.

Hello Good afternoon, the information from this post is very interesting, I am new to this platform and I would like to be able to start playing. I have already read, studied I have even practiced a little with it

This helps a lot for a newcomer like me. Thank you axie buzz. Much appreciated. 🤝
