VICTORIA, Seychelles, July 28, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- OKEx (www.okex.com), a world-leading cryptocurrency spot and derivatives exchange, is pleased to announce the listing of Axie Infinity Shards, or AXS, which is an ERC-20 governance token for the Axie Universe. Developed by Axie Infinity, a virtual world full of fierce, adorable pets called "Axies." These digital creatures are put to the battlefield, or kept as collectibles, in exchange for cryptocurrencies with real value.
AXS holders can claim rewards via staking and participation in the game or governance voting. Not exclusive to a specific Axie game, players can also earn AXS from the Axie Infinity Universe family tree or related campaigns.
"I played a lot of computer games when I was younger, which made my creative thoughts unstoppable. Yet, with the rise of smartphones, mobile games have dominated the gaming universe," reflected OKEx CEO Jay Hao. "I have always been amazed at what these small devices can do — because when I first got a cell phone, it was merely a mode of communication."
As for Axie Infinity, Hao commented:
"We are happy to list AXS. Axie Infinity shares an extremely intriguing goal of decentralization becoming real to the community. This is something we should all appreciate."
