Axie Infinity is currently one of the biggest blockchain-based NFT games. And because of all the hype that there is, some people get a bit skeptical if Axie Infinity is actually legitimate or a scam.

The Answer.

Yes, Axie Infinity is founded and built by a real and legitimate company named Sky Mavis. Also, Axie Infinity is a game partnered with and backed by huge technology companies and bluechip cryptocurrency projects. Namely:


Who doesn’t know Samsung? If you’re an Android phone user, you might be using one.

Axie Infinity caught the attention of Samsung due to its popularity and potential, hence why they formed a partnership that ended up with Samsung integrating Axie Infinity into the Samsung Blockchain Wallet.

Another famous tech giant.

If you’re not a gamer and unsure what company Ubisoft is, Ubisoft is a gaming company that founded and developed mainstream triple-A games such as:

  • Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six
  • Assassin’s Creed
  • Watch Dogs
  • Far Cry
  • Rayman

and many more. Axie Infinity’s Sky Mavis team has worked closely with Ubisoft experts in 2020 to prepare for Axie Infinity’s mainstream release. And so far, since Axie Infinity did go mainstream, it seems like the partnership worked out really well!

Currently, the Sky Mavis team still works closely with Ubisoft for their Ronin sidechain validation, and to help make the Axie Infinity better overall.


Definitely one of the biggest cryptocurrency-related companies today. If you invest or trade in certain cryptocurrency projects, chances are, you’ve already used Binance sometime in the past.

In 2020, Axie Infinity launched the token sale of their platform’s governance token, Axie Infinity Shards(AXS) through the Binance Launchpad.

Along with that, Axie Infinity’s platform tokens — Smooth Love Potions(SLP) and Axie Infinity Shards(AXS) are both listed on the Binance exchange for buying and selling.

Final Thoughts

Now that you’ve learned that Axie Infinity is a legitimate game, being run by a legitimate company, and partnered with legitimate companies, a better question is: is it worth buying Axies, or investing in the Axie Infinity ecosystem overall? Now that’s a different topic that’s going to require you a lot more research, as the profitability of this game can be extremely volatile. Best of luck!
