Axie Infinity & the blockchain gaming play to earn revolution
Axie Infinity is a Pokémon-inspired blockchain-based digital pet universe where players can earn tokens through gaming. Players can battle, collect, breed, and build a kingdom for their pets. Like CryptoKitties, Axies are non-fungible tokens (NFTs) represented as cryptographically unique characters that can’t be replicated. And like Pokémon, they are born to battle. While Axie can be just a game, it has built a strong social network, passionate community, and emerging jobs platform due to the play to earn opportunities it is generating. Guest: Jeff Zirlin Why you should listen: Jeff grew up playing games like Neopets, Pokémon, and World of Warcraft. “I played so much WOW that my parents sent me to boarding school,” he says. “I’ve always been a collector. As I kid my dad and I would collect fossils and insects. And as a lifelong gamer, I’m a digital collector as well, so I was predisposed to be interested in blockchain gaming.” The blockchain gaming play to earn revolution started to gain traction after it emerged that a large community of players in the Philippines was earning money playing Axie Infinity. Jeff says "Most game companies sell in-game resources, items, and upgrades. With Axie there's an in-game resource that you need to create more Axies and it's called the love potion. So most game developers would sell this love potion, and people would pay for it. In Axie we don't sell it ourselves, the only way that love potions can be created is by people playing the game. Players who have big Axie collections need the love potion to breed Axies and have to buy the token from a liquidity pool on UniSwap or from Binance. So players can earn a basic income and we've seen that with the rise in value of ETH, this can appreciate significantly.” Key takeaway: The power of blockchain games is that they're becoming more than games. They're becoming places that we can live, work, and play. The eventual vision is to create a Metaverse similar to Ready Player One where people spend the majority of their time. “We believe in a future where work and play become one,” says Jeff. “And we believe in empowering our players and giving them economic opportunities.” To do this the Axie team is committed to aligning the incentives of the Axie community. Players can earn the AXS governance token. The token economics were designed by Delphi Digital. Delphi Digital has invested a significant amount of capital in buying several extremely rare Mystic Axies. If Axie Infinity continues to gain traction Mystic Axies will grow in value in the future. Jeff says “We’re seeing the rise of Mystic Axies and other NFTs as a true asset class. This trend accelerated when Delphi Digital picked up some of the rarest Axies in the game, like quadruple Mystics, triple Mystics. You can think of Mystics as rare and valuable skins. It makes sense that there's a lot of interest around NFTs and it makes sense because we live in a digital world.” Supporting links: Axie Infinity Delphi Digital on Axie Leverj Jeff on Twitter Andy on Twitter Brave New Coin on Twitter Brave New Coin If you enjoyed the show please subscribe to the Crypto Conversation and give us a 5-star rating and a positive review in whatever podcast app you are using.

Bitcoin is Dead. Bitcoin is Alive! Bad News For Jan 14th
Bitcoin is Dead. Bitcoin is Alive! Bad News For Jan 14th Since our last news episode, Bitcoin has died once again. It went from almost $42,000 to $32,000 in a flash crash. Some people panicked and mourned the demise of Satoshi’s creation. But for those of us who have been around for a while, we just smiled and waited. It didn’t take long, because 3 days later Bitcoin soared back up to $40,000. Dead, my ass. Pantera Capital says Bitcoin will reach $115,000 by August of this year. The Biden administration is prepping a 3 trillion dollar stimulus package. What will that mean to the price of Bitcoin? And now Elon Musk has overtaken Jeff Bezos to become the world’s richest man.  In episode 478, we celebrate Peter Schiff being wrong… again… So it’s a good day to talk about all the news in the crypto world.
