Tagalog: Arthur Lapina: Ang Kauna-unahang manlalaro ng Axie Infinity sa Nueva Ecija

Si Arthur o mas kilala sa pangalan niyang Artwork Artwork ang kauna-unahang manlalaro ng play-to-earn recreation na Axie Infinity sa Nueva Ecija. Nalaman ni Artwork Artwork ang on-line recreation na ito noong March 2020. Ng mga panahong iyon ang conversion ng Small Love Potion (SLP) ay nasa 0.19 centavos pa lamang.

Mula sa pagiging isang simpleng empleyado sa isang restaurant sa Nueva Ecija, isa na siyang scholarship supervisor ng on-line recreation na Axie Infinity. Meron nang 25 students si Artwork Artwork, pangarap nyang makapag bigay pa ng Axie scholarship sa kanyang mga kababayan hindi lang sa Nueva Ecija kundi pati na rin sa bayan ng Zambales at Montalban.

Paano mo nalaman ang Axie Infinity? Sino ang nag-introduce sayo sa recreation?

Nawalan si Artwork Artwork ng trabaho noong March 2020.  Naisipan nyang maghanap ng trabaho on-line. Sa Fb nakita nya ang play-to-earn recreation na Axie Infinity.

Artwork Artwork: “Bata pa lang ay gamer na talaga ako pero kahit isang beses sa buong buhay ko hindi ako kumita sa paglalaro on-line kaya bago sa aking ang idea ng play-to-earn.

Inusisa ko ang web site ng Axie Infinity at nalaman ko na kailangan ko palang bumili muna ng Axie para makapagsimulang maglaro. Medyo nag dalawang-isip ako, sanay kasi ako na pag could gusto akong laruin ida-obtain ko lang ng libre. Tapos tiningnan ko din yung Fb web page ng Axie Infinity, meron lang 1000 likes so napaisip ako kung sulit ba.

Dati ang isang Axie ay nagkakahalaga lang ng Php100 ang isa, para makapag simulang maglaro, kailangan ko ng tatlong Axie kaya mga Php300 ang kailangan kong ilabas nun. Para sa katulad ko na walang trabaho mabigat ang Php300. Pero nagbabakasali ako kaya nung April 2020 bumili ako ng unang group ko. 

Acquainted na ako sa cryptocurrency kaya madali lang sa akin gamitin ang Ethereum (ETH) para makabili ng Axie pati na din ang pag-i-set up ng Metamask sa telephone ko ay madali na lang din.

Paano ka natuto maglaro ng Axie Infinity?

Natuto ako maglaro ng Axie Infinity sa sarili ko lang. Sariling sikap kasi nung mga panahon na iyon wala pang Youtube tutorial movies, Fb dwell stream, kahit on-line na energetic group sa Fb wala din. Sa Discord Philippine channel apat o lima lang yata kami

Natuto ako sa pag o-observe sa mga laban ko sa battle area, kailangan kasi marunong ka gumamit ng card combos at alam mo kung kailan gagamitin ang iba’t-ibang klaseng playing cards sa recreation. Hindi madaling laruin ang recreation na ito kailangan may strategy ka para manalo ka ng maraming SLP.

Gaano ka na katagal naglalaro ng Axie Infinity?

Na-uncover ko ang Axie noong final week ng March 2020, bumili ako ng sarili kong group at nag-begin maglaro first week of April 2020. Mga mahigit 13 months na ako naglalaro. Isang taon na din mahigit.

Ano ang mga challenges mo ng nagsisimula ka maglaro?

Mga ilang linggo pa lang ako naglalaro ng Axie na-notice ko na mas malaki pala kikitain ko kapag mas marami akong account. Kaya bumili pa ako ng tatlong account. Nakakalungkot lang kasi ang kinikita ko kapag 15th and 20th of the month ay umaabot lang sa Php1500 – Php2000 kasi 0.19 centavos lang ang palitan ng SLP nun. Kaya naisip ko ibenta na lang yung bagong tatlong account na nabili ko. Sabi ko sa sarili ko di naman ata ako kikita ng pang kabuhayan dito kaya mas mabuti pang humanap na lang ng totoong trabaho.

Pagdating ng July pumalo sa Php11.00 ang SLP. Nakapag withdraw ako ng P14,000.00 yun na yata yung pinaka-malaking sahod na nahawakan ko kahit pa ng nagtatrabaho ako sa restaurant hindi ako kumikita ng ganito kalaking halaga.

Tuwang-tuwa ako pinost ko sa Fb yung image ko na hawak yung pera at ung cellphone ko na could nakasalang na Axie Infinity.

Nang makita ng iba ko pang mga kamag-anak at kaibigan yung put up ko lahat na sila gusto maglaro ng Axie Infinity.

Proud ako na lahat ng humingi sa akin tulong na makapasimula sa Axie ay natulungan ko at naturuan ko maglaro pati magazine declare ng SLP at gawing piso ako din ang nagturo.

Paano binago ni Axie Infinity ang buhay nyo?

Hindi lang buhay ko ang binago ni Axie, binago din nito pati buhay ng mga kaibigan at kamag-anak ko.

Sa ngayon po meron na po akong 25 students, plano ko sana nitong taon na ito magkaroon ng 100-150 pa na students para makatulong po ako sa maraming kababayan ko sa Nueva Ecija, sa mga kaibigan ko sa Zambales at ang mga kalaro ko din on-line.

Nagkaroon ako ng monetary freedom dahil sa Axie. Hindi ko ito mararanasan kung sa restaurant pa din ako nagta-trabaho hangang ngayon. Yung kinikita ko po sa trabaho ko dati madalas kulang pa at parati kaming kapos sa araw-araw.

Ngayon po inaabot na ng 5 digits ang kinikita ko sa Axie. Binigyan ko na din ng sariling account ang mga magulang ko. Might pera na din silang sarili galing sa Axie.  Masaya sila kasi kahit pa matanda na sila nabigyan pa din sila ng alternative na kumita ng pera.

Nagpapatayo kaming buong pamilya ng bahay, galing lahat ang perang ginagastos namin dito sa kinikita namin sa Axie. Lahat po ito SLP.

I’m not used to that, all of the video games I play could be downloaded free so paying upfront to play is one thing I’m not accustomed to.

Axie Infinity’s Fb web page throughout that point has solely round 1000 likes so there’s not a lot to say whether or not I’m getting again my cash’s price quickly. Across the first week of April 2020 the price of one Axie was lower than Php100. To make a group I have to spend a minimum of Php300.

I taught and educated many group members right here in Nueva Ecija about Axie Infinity and for that they’re endlessly grateful to Axie Infinity and to me who launched it to them.

The pandemic has introduced us a lot hardships in life however due to this play-to-earn recreation we raise one another up, giving us entry to this sort of new alternative we didn’t know was doable.

After a few weeks taking part in Axie Infinity in April 2020, I noticed that I might earn extra by having a number of recreation accounts, so I purchased three extra groups.

The worth of Small Love Potion (SLP) at the moment is Php 0.19. It was so disheartening as a result of I’m solely getting Php 1500- Php 2000 each 15th and 30th of the month for 4 Axie groups. So I offered my different three accounts to my associates. I assumed this is able to not work out and I ought to begin discovering an actual job.

Then in July 2020, the SLP conversion charge skyrocketed to Php11.00. I managed to withdraw Php14,000.00 price of cash. That was my first largest payout! My associates whom I offered my different accounts had been very comfortable too.

I posted my massive “win” on Fb, with an image holding the cash on my left hand and my telephone with Axie Infinity on the appropriate hand.

I advised myself: My journey with Axie Infinity has solely simply begun.

After my celebrated Fb put up about my success story, all my associates and family began expressing curiosity to the purpose of begging me to show them concerning the recreation.

I’m proud to say I helped all of them get their very own accounts and educated them to play the sport.

How did taking part in Axie Infinity change your life?

It was not simply my life that was modified. It’s additionally the lifetime of a lot of my household and associates.

Axie Infinity gave me monetary freedom. One thing that I’ll by no means obtain if I’m nonetheless working within the restaurant. My wage earlier than couldn’t even final till the subsequent payday. We barely make ends meet.

At the moment I’m getting 5 to 6 digits pay from taking part in Axie Infinity, greater than sufficient for me.
