Vietnam-based play-to-earn Axie Infinity recently announced that it will be increasing the marketplace fee to 5.25%; fee adjustment will be implemented by March 7, 2022. The developers noted that the adjusted fee will be used to facilitate Axie creator codes which will give creators a 1% cut of marketplace volume.
Axie Creator Code is a new system introduced by Sky Mavis to the community-driven Axie Infinity where creators can receive incentives (similar to how commissions work) whenever they refer new players into the game.
According to the developers, the Creator codes will be used to “drive a proliferation of Axie content across all major social channels by incentivizing creators to supercharge the awesome work they do around spreading Axie Infinity and onboarding new players.”
In a series of tweets, Jeffrey “Jihoz” Zirlin explained the pros and cons of the project in the community. He emphasized the importance of creators in Axie’s ecosystem. According to him, they “create so much value by making educational and cultural content that makes the game more fun and rewarding for the entire community.”
Sky Mavis also spotlighted that through the program, Axie Infinity can give back to the community without having to negatively impact the flow of funds into the Community Treasury, a shared pool of funds owned by all AXS holders.
Aside from the upcoming marketplace adjustment fee, the developers also implemented drastic changes regarding the game’s economic aspect last month as it removed the rewards in adventure mode and daily quest.
