The Bad Effects and Brutal Truths that You Need to Know About Axie Infinity
Axie Infinity affects the health of some players
This digital pet game is addicting, primarily because playing means income. But some people can’t help but play too much, causing them to skip meals and even lose sleep.
While that will not have any harmful effects on health at first, constant sleep deprivation and going without food can cause adverse effects in the long run.
Many students are playing Axie Infinity as a part-time source of income. But some of them are paying more attention to the game more than they do to their studies. As a result, they don’t do well in school and get bad grades.
Winning is difficult for beginners
If you are a new player, you can train your skills by battling with AI Axies. But during the actual battle, winning is hard, especially if your new Axie is fighting against thoroughbred ones.
More than that, experienced players can make their digital pets faster, stronger, and more energetic quickly, making them even harder to beat.
You need to invest a huge amount to play
Axie Infinity allows you to become a scholar. In this case, a manager will buy three Axies for you, and you can use them to win battles and earn SLP. You can trade the SLP in exchange for money.
However, some people are not lucky enough to find a scholarship. So, if they want to play the game badly, they need to invest $30 on average to start playing. Unfortunately, not everyone wants to risk such an amount, so they no longer pursue playing the game.

Axie Teams can be purchased for more than $1,000.
Due to its popularity, the influx of gamers makes its server laggy. Aside from that, its growing players make it the number one target of online attacks such as Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks.
This results in server downtime and maintenance. This downtime allows the developers and the administrators to perform the necessary steps to keep the server operational as soon as possible.
Axie Infinity is a new paradigm for cryptocurrency. It is a great game for the most part. But there are also some frustrating parts that players need to deal with.

$30 to start playing? What?!
