Paano mo nalaman ang Axie Infinity?

Zabrina: Parati po nagpo-post tungkol sa Axie ang pinsan ko sa Fb. Sabi ko baka nag e-enjoy talaga siya sa paglalaro kaya panay din ang publish nya. Isang araw nag publish sya ng might hawak na pera tapos ang hashtag ay “#SalamatAxie”. Na-curious po ako at naging interesado. Nagpadala po ako ng message sa kanya sa Fb, tinanong ko po siya kung paano din ako kikita ng pera sa paglalaro lang.

Tinawagan ko po sya para magpaturo. Nung panahon na iyon kumita na siya ng Php14,000 sa paglalaro ng Axie.

Siya po ang nagturo sa akin kung paano laruin at kung paano kumita dun sa sport.

Bumili ako ng sarili kong Axie ng August 2020, nabili ko lang po ang isang group sa halagang Php4,000.00.

Ang pinsan ko din po ang nagturo sa akin paano maglaro ng Axie Infinity at kumita ng maraming Small Love Potion (SLP). (Editor’s word: Small Love Potion is now referred to as Easy Love Potion. For readability’s sake we simply name it SLP.)

Tinuro nya po lahat sa akin, simula pag cash-in ng pera, pagbili ng Ether (ETH), pagpili ng fundamental group, tamang expertise sa paglalaro, sa kanya ko lang po natutunan lahat.

Madami po sya naturuan at natulungan, kaya po siguro sinuswerte siya ngayon sa buhay.

Simula August 2020 hanggang ngayon magkano na ang whole na kinita mo sa paglalaro ng Axie?

Hindi ko na po ma-total lahat, pero might buwan po na kaya kong kumita ng 15Ok, 20Ok, 30Ok, iba-iba din po, depende pa din sa value ng SLP.

Ito na po talaga ikinabubuhay namin ngayon. Sa household ko po meron na kaming tatlong accounts ng Axie Infinity.  Isa sa akin, isa sa asawa ko, at isa din sa 14 year-old na anak ko.

Lahat ng Axie namin binili lang din namin sa Marketplace ng Axie.

Might plano pa kayo bumili ulit ng Axie group?

Might plano po sooner or later na bumili para malaro naman sa ibang tao para makatulong din sa iba kahit papaano. Binago po talaga ni Axie ang buhay namin kaya alam ko po na mababago din nito ang buhay ng iba.

Paano kayo natutulungan ng kinikita nyo sa Axie?

Bago po kami nagsimula maglaro ng Axie, nagtatrabaho po bilang tricycle driver ang asawa ko, dahil din po mahina ang byahe sinabi ko po sa kanya na bumili na lang kami ng isa pang Axie account at maglaro na lang din sya. Ngayon po kasi delikado na ang lumabas ng bahay baka pag-uwi nya imbes na pera ang maiuwi niya, virus pa.  At saka dito po sa paglalaro ng Axie wala po syang kapagod-pagod, maghapon pa sya nakaupo.

Napakalaking bagay po ng Axie, sa isang araw po kayang kitain ng tatlong account namin ang P1500-P1800 at tig two hours lang kami maglalaro.

Paano binago ni Axie Infinity ang buhay nyo?

Nung nawalan ako ng trabaho dahil sa pandemic, first two months hindi ko ininda kasi might financial savings pa ako natitira, tapos unti-unti nararamdaman ko palabas na lahat ng pera wala ng pumapasok, so nag iisip na ako lagi kung paano na gagawin ko kasi mahirap talaga magka-income ngayong panahon na ito, iniisip ko mga payments ko, mga installments ko sa bank card. Parang nakaka depress na din kasi alam ng mga anak ko marami pa kaming pera.

Si Axie parang naging magic sa buhay ko. Binayaran niya ang mga payments ko, might panggastos kami on a regular basis, nakakakain kami ng masarap kapag gusto namin anytime.

Si Axie din nagbukas ng iba pang pinto sa akin. Hindi lang pala siya ang pwede ko pagkakitaan, natuto na din ako sa iba pang crypto cash, kahit mahirap nag tyaga ako manood nood kahit papano sa Youtube. Doon ko natutunan magazine commerce at magazine make investments sa ibang crypto. Nagte-trade po ako ng Small Love Potion (SLP), WINk (WIN), BitTorrent Token (BTT) sa Binance basta po ung mga lowest value na cash lang. 

Bukod sa Axie Infinity, might iba ka pa bang video games nilalaro?

Nag begin na din kaming maglaro ng Alien Worlds, yung mga anak ko na 14 at 11 years previous ang naglalaro, lahat ng kita dun sa kanila para might pera din sila. Hindi naman masyado malaki ang kita pero pwede na din kasi wala naman akong funding.

Ano ang pinakamalaking contributions ng Axie sa buhay nyo? Nabago ba nito ang buhay ng pamilya nyo?

Life altering talaga ang Axie, dati kasi ang cycle ng buhay ko, utang-trabaho-sahod-bayad utang, tapos ganun ulit. Ngayon iba na laro-sahod-gastos-ipon.  Wala na akong utang, nakaka-ipon pa ako, dahil lahat iyan sa Axie. Nagpapasalamat talaga ako na dumating si Axie sa buhay ko, sa buhay naming pamilya.

For 2 months, they have been dwelling off the little cash left in her financial savings. Because the payments piled up, and the hire due date crept nearer, Zabrina’s monetary stress and anxiousness acquired worse.  Particularly, as she had no “Plan B.”

That was till the play-to-earn sport, Axie Infinity, got here into her life in essentially the most surprising manner. Since then, it has  modified her life and the lifetime of her household for the higher.

At first, I believed that he was simply having enjoyable taking part in it. Till, he posted himself holding cash with the hashtag ‘#SalamatAxie.’ I acquired curious, so I instantly requested him how it’s potential to earn cash from taking part in.

I referred to as him, and he defined all the things to me. At the moment, he already earned Php 14,000.

My cousin taught me first how you can play the sport to earn a Small Love Potion (SLP). He taught me all the things from downloading the sport software on my cell phone, installing Metamask wallet, shopping for Ethereum (ETH), cashing in funds, and shopping for my first Axie group.

He taught lots of people in our group how you can play Axie, not simply me, by doing that he helped us elevate our lifestyle.   

I purchased my first Axie group in August 2020 for under P4,000.00.

Since August 2020, how a lot do you assume you’ve earned in whole?

I misplaced observe, however on common I get to withdraw P15,000 to P30,000 month-to-month.  It all the time is determined by the worth of SLP. 

This has been our bread and butter ever since I found it.  We now have three accounts, one for me, one for my husband, and the opposite one is for my 14-year previous son.

I purchased all our Axie groups within the Axie Infinity Marketplace.

Do you could have plans of shopping for one other Axie group quickly?

I’ve plans to breed Axies quickly, I would like different individuals to try to expertise incomes cash from play-to-earn video games like Axie and by some means assist them. I imagine it will probably change their lives similar to the way it modified ours.

How is the cash serving to you and your loved ones?

My husband is a tricycle driver. Because it’s pandemic and it’s very dangerous to exit to do his job, I requested him to remain residence and play Axie. I used to be afraid that as a substitute of bringing cash residence, he would shock us with the virus. In addition to, taking part in Axie would let him calm down sitting on the sofa right here at residence every single day. 

Taking part in Axie helps us earn as a lot as Php 1,500 to Php 1,800 every day. That is solely by taking part in 2 hours every day with our three accounts.  It’s a game-changer!

How taking part in ‘Axie Infinity’ modified your life?

Axie is like “magic.” It paid off all our payments. We by no means ran out of cash for our on a regular basis wants, and we will now eat scrumptious meals anytime we would like.

Have you ever began taking part in different video games than ‘Axie Infinity’?

We began taking part in Alien Worlds. My youngsters, 14 and 11 year-olds, are taking part in it to allow them to earn their very own cash. The cash we acquired from taking part in Alien Worlds was nothing in comparison with Axie Infinity. Good factor that we didn’t make investments that a lot to play that sport.

What’s the greatest contribution of Axie in your life?

Discovering the play-to-earn sport Axie Infinity modified our lives for the very best. Earlier than, I believed my life can be in an inescapable loop of debt cycle: debt-work-get paid-pay debt.  However when Axie got here, all the things modified. Now, our life is play-get paid-shopping-savings!  I’ll be eternally grateful to Axie Infinity for altering our lives eternally!  Now, I can see a brighter future forward for my household and me.
