Aside from Axie deciding on which Play to Earn games to invest your time and money in can be tough.

Here's what you should look for when analyzing NFT games:

πŸ’™ Community
πŸš€ Tokenomics
πŸ’« Founding Team Vision

I'll go in detail below...(thread)
πŸ’™ Community

You cannot have a solid NFT project in the gaming space if community is lacking.

Benefits of a strong community:

- Conviction
- Inspiration for the Dev Team
- Authenticity

One might ask: How do you know if a community is legit. (See the next post)
To test if a community is legit do the following:

Hop into a project's discord and start interacting with the community.

90% of the time the responses will give you a sense of how the community is doing.
Beyond just discord:

- Dive deep into the comments section of youtube videos

- Twitter is your best friend, scan the official twitter of the project and interact to see who speaks back

Here you want to gage community temperament
Community is the difference in a project surviving a bear market. It should be the first check you make and often you can make a decision on a game based on community alone.
πŸš€ Tokenomics


I cannot stress this enough and below I will tell you why.
No game has it all figured out from day one but the amount of time, attention to detail, and effort that a project puts into it's whitepaper is a clear indicator of how much effort they will put into executing on that vision.
If you read a whitepaper and afterwards feel more confused than when you started you should probably back far far away from that game.
Explainer videos are also very good but ultimately if your goal is to invest in a game, tokenomics are at the forefront of importance.
Here's how I analyze tokenomics:

1. Read the White Paper
2. What an explainer video (youtube)
3. Have a friend read the same white paper

After you finish these compare your notes with your friend and if you still feel confused the game is likely one you should not invest in.
πŸ’« Founding Team Vision

It does not matter how great a game could be if the founding team is lacking the skills necessary to execute.

So here are my thoughts on what a founding team should have. (keep reading)
1. A Fearless Front-Facing Leader/Leadership team - we see this from @Jihoz_Axie and the Axie team.

@Psycheout86 & @trungfinity are behind the scenes superstars but the community is unified through the outward facing work of Jiho.

Every game should have this type of synergy.
Additionally, although it's archaic, Linkedin is a great way to learn much more about the backgrounds of a founding team.

You wan tot ensure that you're not dealing with scammers and the best way to do so is by doing background research.
These platforms are great for doing research on founding teams:

1. YouTube (Look for interviews/podcasts)
2. Linkedin (Look for background Info)
3. Crunchbase (Learn about the team of investor backing the founding team)
4. Twitter (Are they legit?)

Great places to start
90% of the games being built right now are ngmi. You need to be smart and DYOR if you want to make it in this space.

If you follow these steps you journey will be much safer and feel free to message me with any questions. 🌞

Axie gaining long term market share in the United States will come as a result of entertainment value.

Creating entertainment value for casual players is what’s on my mind. πŸš€
Most Americans do not care if you can earn money playing a video game.

Idk how many times I’ve tried pitching my friends, and even casual gamers playing other games on the concept of P2E.

So how do we grab these audiences?
The reasoning is most Americans play games to decompress from work, life, and responsibility.

They want to do the least amount of work possible to enjoy moments of entertainment.

So we have to combine P2E with entertainment to market in this space.

A Thread on the Axie Infinity Arena for those who think there is a specific meta that will win you first place...

For those who are new to the game understand the the axie infinity season is a marathon not a sprint.

Season 18 will also operate like this. Ideally none of the top players play or even use their best teams.

For 80% of the season they spend their energy testing...

Testing new teams, testing new comps, testing new builds and ideally their only focus is keeping the game simple, staying within striking distance and building for the last few weeks of the season.

So you may beat a top player today but congrats you played their D Team.

Reasons why I invested $26,000 / 12.5ETH buying @AxieInfinity $AXS at an all-time high.

For those who are unfamiliar I started my Axie journey in April of 2021.

There were 40-50k daily active users at that time. $AXS was going for about $8-10 a coin....

Today there are over 400k+ daily active users and $AXS is going for $30 a coin.

I used to be a huge reptile believer but based on the way the current version of Axie Infinity plays, beasts are the beast Axies in the game.
I meant "BEST" axies but it actually looks cute that I used beast twice LMAO. 🀣🀣🀣
I'll explain why, in a game where a single crit and win or lose you the game, and beasts have a higher chance of getting off these criticals.

The damage value you get from playing beasts is much higher over a 100 game span is higher than any other type of axie.
