Axie Infinity OriginAxie infinity is one of the most popular and most prominent names in the blockchain gaming space. The platform broke into the limelight in 2021 after onboarding millions of players and enticing them with the opportunity to earn while playing games.

Today, there are several platforms adopting the same play-to-earn (P2E) model, and it’s not too much of a stretch to say that Axie Infinity is a pioneer of this. However, about a year after its rise into prominence, Axie Infinity appears to be struggling.

Axie Infinity’s Tumultuous 2022

The struggles for Axie Infinity began with the market downturn. The platform’s AXS token took a significant hit due to bearish market conditions, and since the asset had been the major draw for Axie Infinity, its losses immediately translated to drops in viewership and user numbers for Axie.

Then, the hack on its Ronin Bridge happened and rocked the entire market. In March, the Ronin Bridge for Axie Infinity got hacked to the tune of $622 million in what has now become one of the biggest hacks in the history of the crypto space.

Bridges are protocols that handle the exchange of assets – including traditional crypto and non-fungible tokens (NFTs) – from one blockchain to another. In the case of the Ronin Bridge, the protocol helped to provide seamless asset transfers from the Ronin chain to Ethereum and back.

As Ronin developers explained, the attacker had used private keys to forge withdrawals, draining the entire bridge of 173,600 ETH and 25.5 million USDC tokens in just two transactions. The hack was a bombshell that rocked the entire Axie ecosystem and eroded investor confidence.

Back with a Mission

However, Sky Mavis – Axie Infinity’s developer – committed to landing on its feet. After fixing the loopholes that caused the hack and raising $150 million from Binance, Sky Mavis sought to reinvigorate the Axie ecosystem. In May, the company released Axie Infinity: Origin.

Origin was supposed to be the rebranded version of Axie Infinity to restore faith in the platform and its ecosystem. However, things haven’t been so rosy. Weeks ago, reports confirmed that the platform had seen a decline in active users and NFT sales, with the first metric reaching 368,000 weekly – a far cry from the former high of 2.7 million weekly active users.

Battle Infinity – Blockchain Gaming’s New Kid on the Block

To be fair, it’s too soon to declare that Axie Infinity is dead. The blockchain gaming landscape has witnessed hard times along with the traditional crypto space. Players are waiting to see if coin prices will rise to attractive levels again.

However, interested gamers will be looking for possible alternatives that could replace Axie Infinity as they hope to continue with the play-to-earn model. This is where Battle Infinity – a new gaming platform for sports fans – has the advantage.

Based in India, Battle Infinity is a fantasy sports game that combines NFTs, blockchain technology, and even the metaverse. It is similar in many ways to Axie Infinity. The major difference is that Battle Infinity has a focus on sports.

Battle Infinity has many features and facets. However, none is as prominent as its IBAT Premier League. The league allows participants to purchase NFTs representing real-life athletes and build their teams. As every fantasy league operates, teams earn points based on the players’ real-life performances. At the end of the season, the team with the highest point is declared the winner.

Battle Infinity has several other impressive features – including a decentralised exchange called Battle Swap and an in-built NFT marketplace that allows seamless trading of in-game assets. All of these are tied together by IBAT – the platform’s native token, which is currently available on presale and selling fast.

It’s easy to see why excitement surrounding Battle Infinity is at a fever pitch right now. The platform is based in India – a country with 1.4 billion people, where most of the population is young and tech-savvy. And with the global fantasy sports space expected to hit a valuation of $49 billion in 2027, Battle infinity is in a perfect position to corner the market.

Based on the reception, Battle Infinity is expected to be the next big thing in blockchain gaming. As the market continues to flip bullish gradually, IBAT is expected to meet massive investor demand when it launches.

For now, until October 10th, IBAT is available on presale. The asset has a launch price of $00015 and can be bought for a minimum of 0.1 BNB and a maximum of 500 BNB. IBAT also has a 16,500 BNB hard cap.

Interested investors can purchase the asset by visiting the presale link. Simply connect a wallet and buy the asset directly using BNB. If not, investors can add this contract address to their wallets: 0x5832e385f633b30519b3ecade3c5ed3d9881cf58
