Welcome To Axie!

Getting Started with Blockchain Games

Axie Infinity has a full player-owned economy system, allowing players to seamlessly sell and trade their game assets for digital currency. To enable this, Axie game assets exist as tokens.

In order to store tokens, users must download a digital wallet to play the game. We recommend using MetaMask. Metamask can be used on both desktop and mobile. For mobile users, Trust Wallet can also be used on Android, but it does not have a browser on IOS.

Here’s a quick video tutorial!

MetaMask takes around 1 minute to download and set up. Make sure to store your secret 12 word password (private key) in a safe place.

Creating an Axie Account With Ronin Wallet

1. Create Axie Infinity Account

Navigate to Axie Marketplace page, and click on login on the top left of the page.
You’ll be greeted whether to login with MetaMask or email and password, click on login with MetaMask.

MetaMask pop-ups will appear, click Next, Connect and Sign when prompted. This does not cost any ETH.

You now have an Axie Infinity account. Sweet! Now is the time to give yourself a name.

2. Set up Email and Password

In the middle of the dashboard, there is an option to set up your email and password. Click on that, and proceed by filling in the necessary information.

You should receive a verification code in your email. Copy and paste the code into the text box and click “Confirm.”

3. Create Ronin Wallet

Ronin is a side-chain that is built by Sky Mavis, the company behind Axie Infinity. This is where Axie activities and transactions take place now. In order to interact with Ronin, you’ll need a Ronin wallet. The Ronin wallet extension can be found here.

On the dashboard you’ll see Wallets section. Under Activate Ronin Wallet, click on Install Ronin Wallet.

This will bring you to Ronin Wallet extension page on the Chrome Webstore. Add the extension to your browser.

Once you have it installed, click on the Ronin extension. You might need to find the wallet extension within your installed extensions, and we highly recommend that you pin it to your browser for quick access.

If you already have a Ronin wallet, you may import the wallet here. If you don’t, then click on “I’m new. Let’s get set up!”

There will be 3 steps to create a Ronin wallet:

  1. Create password
  2. Copying Seed Phrase somewhere safe
  3. Confirm the Seed Phrase

Once you’ve filled up your password for the wallet, click on “create wallet.”

Next, the Seed Phrase. Reveal the Seed Phrase and write it down. Keep it offline with multiple copies.

Never give or reveal your Seed Phrase to anyone, ever. Not even the Axie Infinity team! If you lose the Seed Phrase, you’ll lose access to your Axie Infinity assets. If someone has your Seed Phrase, they will have total control over your Axie Infinity assets. PLEASE KEEP IT SAFE!

Fill the text boxes with the correct word for each position from your Seed Phrase, then click continue. Congratulations, you’ve created your wallet!

You can check your wallet by clicking on Ronin Wallet extension.

4. Attach Ronin Wallet to Account

The final step is to attach your Ronin Wallet it to your Axie Infinity account. Click on “Attach Ronin to Account” under the Activate Ronin Wallet box, in the middle of the Dashboard.

A pop-up will appear, click “Confirm.”

Acquiring Axies

As of this writing, approximately 140,000 Axies exist in the world. In order to play the game, you’ll need at least 3 Axies.

Axies can be purchased on the official Axie Infinity Marketplace, which you can find at – note that you must complete your account set up before you can interact with the market. Please note that this is easiest if performed on Desktop with Metamask. We recommend using Google Chrome as your browser.

In order to buy Axies you’ll need to have some of the digital currency Ether (ETH).

There are 2 ways to get your ETH into your Ronin Wallet:

  1. Depositing from an Ethereum wallet to Ronin wallet via the Ronin Bridge. You’ll first need to buy ETH on a cryptocurrency exchange like Binance or Coinbase, and then send it to your Ethereum address.
  2. Buying ETH with Fiat on Ronin using Ramp Network. (Please note that this does not work in some countries).
