NFT trading game Axie Infinity launches AXS staking program

Axie Infinity, a play-to-earn NFT game based on the Ethereum blockchain, announced the launch of the staking program for its native token, Axie Infinity Shards or AXS. 

AXS holders can start staking their tokens while the rewards will be activated in 24 hours to ensure all time zones could stake beforehand, according to a Sept. 30 announcement.

“Staking is a way for us to reward our community members for having a long-term mindset and locking up their AXS tokens,” the Axie Infinity team said as part of the announcement, adding that by staking, players can earn AXS rewards.

The team plans to give voting rights and “a say over the use of the Community Treasury” by staking. The Community Treasury of Axie Infinity holds more than 18 million AXS tokens worth over $1.4 billion at the time of writing.

A total of 2 million AXS tokens will be distributed during the first month of the staking program. About 58 million of the set cap of 270 million AXS tokens are in circulation and the rest would be released through staking, gameplay rewards and ecosystem reward structures, the announcement reads.
