To The Axie Nation & Our Esteemed Allies,
At ~6 PM EST on February 8th, one of our newest community members, Flying Falcon smashed NFT records with the purchase of an epic 9 plot Genesis estate for 888.25 ETH! That's over $1,500,000!
This is by far the largest NFT transaction of all time.
Genesis land are special, supply-capped plots with a unique aesthetic and special positioning within the Axie land system.
The sale happened on the 1 week anniversary of the launch of Ronin Mainnet. Ronin is our sidechain built for Axie Infinity with validators including Binance, Ubisoft, Nonfungible.com and DappRadar.
Axie Land (AKA "Project K) is an upcoming game mode with gameplay loops such as building/decorating property, harvesting resources, battling monsters called chimera, and teaming up with friends to conquer rival kingdoms . We released a short demo in December.
Here's what Flying Falcon had to say about the historic purchase:
" We're witnessing a historic moment; the rise of digital nations with their own system of clearly delineated, irrevocable property rights. Axie land has entertainment value, social value, and economic value in the form of future resource flows. As Genesis land plots are the rarest and best positioned plots in Axie Infinity, they were a natural fit for my thesis."
We believe that complex social interactions, fun, and real digital property rights are the three pillars of a Metaverse. Our community is already having fun, socializing, and earning in the Axie universe a sign that a truly special movement is forming here.
