Origin and Land development are chugging along and gaining momentum. Community members have been key sources of input for both products.
Your Axies are becoming tickets to an infinite realm of experiences thanks to the Axie Builder’s program and user-generated content initiatives.
We are making massive investments towards community partnerships and expanding the Sky Mavis team.

Once any type of gameplay for Land is released that can support token rewards, these Land Staking rewards will transition to be rewarded through active gameplay.

We believe in nurturing growth amongst our community members.
Visit Creator Academy
Axie creators of all sizes create so much value for our ecosystem. However, until now, there’s been a shortage of educational resources allowing Axie creators to take their content to the next level.
Today, we change that:
We’re funding 200 fellowships for creators to participate in Nas Academy’s new Creator Academy.
This training school has been designed by Nas Academy specifically for A
Everyone should participate in the value they help create.
This is the core belief behind many Axie initiatives like AXS leaderboard rewards, Lunacian Codes, IRL meetup grants, and more. These programs deploy support back to Lunacians everywhere while helping to further align incentives.
Today, we begin testing a framework that provides valuable support back to our community of contributors and content creators:
The Axie Creator Program

Later today, we will be deploying updates to Origin. The game will be down until the updates are complete.
✨ What’s New ✨
In Arena Mode, players that go first will once again be able to use attack cards on the first turn (We have removed the "Disarm turn 1" mechanic based on feedback)
We have introduced a scaling system for Energy and Card Draw:
The player who goes first gains 1 Energy and draws 3 cards on their first turn
Progress on Origin is humming along and so far we’ve seen over 600,000 registered accounts.
This post will walk you through our thinking around how we’ll batch together updates in phases as we build towards global launch.
Phase 1, which we’re currently in, focuses around major balance changes: making the game more competitive, improving the amount of in-game decision making, and ultimately making the game more fun!
Phase 2, which we expect to come in July, will see a ful
Earlier this month, we released a forum for token-gated discussions hosted by Commonwealth!
This forum was built to enable our community to post discussions topics around topics important to the future of Axie Infinity. There is also a polling feature that will allow us to gather feedback around new product features and ideas. The forum will allow for more detailed long-form discussions around some of the most important topics affecting the Axie community!
Join The Discussion
Public testing starts now for Lunacian Codes, our new experimental referral program.
It will be funded by the ecosystem fund during testing.
We’re currently testing the implementation of custom codes for creators and will share more on this later. In the meantime, creators can proceed with non-custom code registration and help us begin testing immediately!*

Your Axie NFTs are a ticket to an infinite realm of experiences. Today, we take a major step towards making this a tangible reality.
The Builders Program is one of many initiatives that will unlock more enjoyment and utility for your Axies, in this case from community built experiences. While we plan on harnessing community-built games to strengthen the Axie ecosystem, Sky Mavis will also be forming partnerships with major game studios to develop experiences for the Axie Infinity and Ronin.
We will be deploying updates to Origin at 3am EST on May 27. The game will be down until the updates are complete.

As the largest Discord in Web3, it’s important that our Discord roles add flavor and life to the various roles in our community. To support this mission, we recently held a Discord Icon art contest where anyone from the community could submit their icons for consideration. We saw over 600 submissions!
Voting was conducted in the Axie Discord where owners of the various roles could vote on their respective icons.
We were impressed to see many amazing entries!

During this 4 year journey, many of us have made friends that we’ve never met in the physical world. Friendships that span the globe and transcend physical boundaries. For too long, the Axie universe has been confined to our screens.
This September, that changes.
We’re ecstatic to invite each and every one of you to the first AxieCon this September, 7-10, in Barcelona!
AxieCon is a physical gathering of our Digital nation. Builders, battlers, dreamers, thinkers will all desce

This post will give an overview of the progress around Land Staking.
Land Staking is an initiative designed to increase ownership of AXS among our landholders. Our vision for Land is immense and while our land holders patiently wait to get their hands on Land, we want to make sure that their long term outlook is rewarded with more ownership and influence over our collective ecosystem.
So far we have:
Progressed in the design and development of the user experience for land sta
With May approaching, we are rapidly coming to the final sprint of our second Axie Esports Grant, leaving many wondering what’s coming next- especially given the recent launch of the Axie: Origin alpha.
We won’t have all of the answers you seek in this newsletter today; however, there are a few key topics we’d like to address and unpack a little bit.
But first we’d like to say thank you to everyone that has participated in Axie Esports over the last three month
We’re excited to announce that we are soft-launching Axie IRL, our community meetup program where qualified community members can host their own Axie Infinity meetups!
We believe in the power of community and physical gatherings that bring Lunacians closer and more united. Scaling physical events and meetups is key to ensuring that our community continues to grow stronger and that collectively, we are also able to introduce more people to Axie Infinity and the Web 3 ecosystem.
Later today, we will be deploying updates to Origin. The game will be down until the update is complete.
