Reason for the Delay
The launch of the Axie Infinity Origin was delayed by 1 week due to the recent security threat. Axie is postponing this launch as it is prioritizing security. This additional period will give its engineering and security team adequate time to investigate the implications of the recent attack. After which they can now focus fully on supporting the launch of the new ecosystem.
The blockchain gaming outfit also wants to thank its community members, especially in these times. This is why it is organizing these events in the build-up to the launch, to encourage more community involvement.
