LATEST ON GAME TOKENS
Axie Infinity recently rolled out key updates to its Smooth Love Potion (SLP) system, introducing a new economic structure -
The total supply of SLP is now capped at 44 billion.
For every 10 SLPs burned (used up in the game), 2 SLPs will be minted and added to a new fund. This fund starts with 60,000 USDC from Axie Infinity.
Unlike typical currencies that aim for 2% inflation, SLP will target 2% deflation.
