Reddit community discussions- 9th December

In a discussion on Reddit, regarding the increase in Axie NFT trading volume, it was stated that the 800% rise in the Axie NFT trading volume is because of the Axie Core updates.

One user wrote, “No it’s not. Web3 is the future. That’s nice to see AXS is doing something”.

Another user commented, “It’s only speculation. AXS has already dumped nearly 10% since people realized cosmetic updates don’t make the game balanced, profitable, competitive or fun”.

These Reddit discussions indicate that updates in Axie’s ecosystem are not much affecting the users as of now.

Price volume analysis

The above graph represents a variation of price vs volume for a month (from November 10th to December 8th).

The data depicts that AXS’s volume decreased by 1.76 times from November 10th to 11th, while its price declined by 1.05 times during that period. After 12th November, AXS’s volume saw a sudden spike of 10.36 times for one day and the price increased by 1.08 times.

After that, another sudden spike was noticed on 4th December, when the volume was up by 16.13 times and the price was marginally increased by 1.01 times.

Why is AXS’s price declining?

As we can see that AXS’s price has declined by more than 8% in just one day, which is again a huge dip.

One possible reason for its declining price is that the price is self correcting. As we can see in the graph (attached below) that AXS’s price saw a spike, two days ago. And as of today, its 24-hour trading volume is down by more than 53%.

Its simultaneous decrease in its volume and price clearly indicates that AXS’s price is self correcting and going back to the normal levels as it was before the spike.

Axie’s S2 updates are delayed

According to the latest announcement by the Axie team, Rune and Charm cards will now be launched on the 29th of December (which were earlier to be launched on December 14th).

It says that the delay in the launch is because of the complexity of Rune & Charm and the team wants to create a stable testing experience before rolling out Season 2.

Axie Infinity is building Axie Core

Axie Core is the eternal Axie experience which is not tied to any specific game but aims to strengthen the bond between Axies and the users.

It includes Equipping accessories, upgrading parts, breeding, downloading an avatar and axie raising. Equipping accessories (i.e., cosmetic pieces) can help the users to add more attachments to their axies.

Axie Core is launched with the aim to provide a link between collectability and play. Axie’s this step will certainly help it move near to its ultimate goal.

Interesting Reddit discussions

The AXS’s price is increasing for a day and it is now in the headlines too. In the latest discussion on Reddit regarding the price hike of axie Infinity, most of people believed that its price is still far below its worth.

One user wrote. “AXS was $150 it’s now $8.50 Calm down”.

In another discussion regarding AXS’s price recovery, there are mixed opinions from different users on Reddit. One user believed that AXS’s price is recovering because of its new series of updates.

While, another user wrote, “No it’s just going to crash again”. One comment says, “Niceeeeeee….staking it for 70%. Can’t wait for the bull”.

Axie is on its way to progressively decentralising the platform

At the beginning of the year, Axie shared its aim to progressively decentralize the network. It aimed to work towards an end-state where the community members can make resourcing decisions around its ecosystem.

The ultimate goal of the Axie was to advance the community’s mission via self-organisation.

Note that Axie Infinity has made progress to fulfil its aim since May 2022. It built a “Town Builder” in May i.e., established community members with a history of governance contributions. Later in July, Town builders brought in the Contributor Electors to design and execute the pilot program.

Since then, it is slowly making progress and now it has more than 700 community members to join the inaugural pilot season of Axie Contributors. Every contributor will soon have access to newy created “Governance” section in the Axie Infinity Discord.

Axie Infinity has seen an increase in the $AXS holders

One month ago, the number of $AXS holders was 59,638 and today the number is 63,688, meaning that there is an increase of 6.35% in just one month.

Is Axie Infinity a good investment: Why is Axie Infinity down?

The declining number of players

Note that Axie’s number of active players was 2.78 million at the start of 2022 and the number has decreased to 701,447 as of October 2022. One of the causes of its declining popularity was Ronin bridge hack in March 2022. Since the Ronin network has seen a network breach, the number of active players is falling. Therefore, it is one of the reasons behind the falling prices of AXS.

Unlocking of AXS tokens

According to the reports, Axie Infinity released 10 million restricted tokens to investors and insiders in late October. It was its first batch, which was a part of its $200 million unlocking event.

After the expiry of the vesting period (the time when investors cannot sell their investments for a certain period) in October 2022, investors were free to sell their AXS tokens. This is therefore another probable reason behind the falling prices of the token.

Fed Rate Prediction

Federal funds rates are a major contributing factor to the growth of an economy. Thus, they can also affect the prices of cryptocurrency in a certain way.

According to the latest press release, there can be another hike in the de rates. Although the final decision will be made on December 14th, there are a lot of data that favors the hike in fed funds rates. Let’s explore.

Let’s first discuss November’s inflation data of the U.S. According to the forecast, inflation will continue to rise, which can result in a 75-basis point hike in the fed rate. Another factor is the job market i.e., the employment situation in the country.

Recent reports say that in October 2022, U.S. employers hired more employees than required and the job market is stronger in 2022 than expected. According to the news release by BLS, the total non-farm payroll employment increased by 261k in the month of October. Note that for the purpose of squeezing liquidity, U.S Fed aims to maintain a 7.5% unemployment rate, and currently it is 3.7%. It means that there are the highest chances of a hike in fed rates.

How is the increase in fed funds rates going to affect Axie Infinity?

The increase in the interest rates by Federal Reserve can certainly result in cutting the spending by investors.

High inflation and thus, high fed rates can impact people to don’t risk their money in gaming and thus in Axie Infinity. An increase in the fed rate can lead investors to go for other investments, such as Banks, brokerage firms, and cash-rich companies, instead of speculative investments (like cryptocurrencies), such as AXS.

In case, more people cut back and sell their AXS tokens in this scenario, the prices of the crypto will continue to remain low.
