What Does Axie Release Mean to Community Members?
Axie Infinity’s community members, popularly called Lunacians, will now have the chance to release their Axies and allow them to live in Lunacia independently. In return, these Axies will send exclusive gifts back to their owners.
According to the game platform, these gifts would be Lunar New Year exclusive Land items. The items would be cosmetic items, which players can show off on their Land. These items will also signify how holders participate in the first launch of the much-anticipated Axie releasing feature.
What are the Lunar New Year Items in Axie Infinity?
Players will have an opportunity to receive from the five Lunar New Year items that have been earmarked for this one-month event. Every Axie that a community member holds guarantees one of the five items available during the event.
These Luna New Year items include Assorted Firecrackers, Traditional Snack Box, Blossom Tree, Lucky Lantern, and Crimson Tiger. Suffice to mention that the Crimson Tiger is the rarest of all these items and only the lucky holder will get it.
In addition to the opportunity to get one or all five of these items, when a player releases their Axie, it generates an entry into the Raffle designated for the event. Being in the Raffle allows holders to win more epic rewards. Rewards available for the Raffle draw include:
- Five Axies Origin Coin tokens for one winner
- One Kitsune Mystic Land Item for ten winners
- CoinGecko or Ganbaru CrypTon Epic Land Items for 100 winners
