Still, as the game further moves forward, its revenue continues to slide down; in fact, according to the data provided by the Block, Axie Infinity only brought in $988,400 in revenue for the first week of June — the first week it logged less than $1 million since February of 2021. This is a 99.5% decrease from its peak where it had over $215 million during the week of August 8, 2021.
So far, the value of Smooth Love Potion (SLP), one of the game’s tokens that is convertible to fiat, is still stagnant at less than a peso since November 2021. SLP has been the saving grace of several Filipinos that have been left displaced and jobless by the global pandemic.
