Why It Matters: Last Weekend, Axie Infinity co-founder Jeffrey Jiho Zirlin claimed on Twitter that the project generated more revenue than Metamask, Pancakeswap CAKE/USD, MakerDAO MKR/USD and Curve CRV/USD combined.
The Axie co-founder said that the chief sources of revenue were breeding fees as well as 4.24% of NFT volume from the project’s marketplace.
“Axie is still a pretty basic product and has many upgrades coming over the next 9 months,” said Jiho Zirlin.
Notably, Small Love Potion SLP/USD a token in the Axie Infinity ecosystem, which can be used as a currency to breed Axies also skyrocketed this week, rising 79.96%. Over 24-hours SLP is up 18.08% to $0.28.
A Twitter user noted that SLP farming is “more lucrative” than salaries that fresh graduates receive in Malaysia.
