NFT game Axie Infinity clocks highest-ever $1 billion in trade with its crypto-based virtual economy

Axie Infinity, a game based on non-fungible tokens (NFTs), breached $1 billion in all-time sales — an all time high for the platform backed by the Ethereum blockchain.

It’s a Pokemon-like game where users have to collect ‘Axies’, which are cute characters each with its own unique combination of body parts, shape and abilities.

The NFT game has a virtual economy of its own via in-game tokens — Smooth Love Potion (SLP) and Axie Infinity Shard (AXS).

In the last 30 days, the game has generated nearly $780 million in sales across 1.4 million transactions.
