Player Spotlight: Owl
We all sat down with Axie moderator and community creator to pick his brain in the vision for Axie, exactly what it’s like building equipment for the Axie community and much more! Owl is a great example of exactly how Axie can introduce conventional gamers to Blockchain technologies and even jumpstart career dreams in this blossoming field!
How did you find Axie and what attracted you many about it?
I entered the crypto world early 2018 like a friend of mine set on into it. Summer 2018, I could see a post about Axie Infinity on Reddit and sensed intrigued as soon as I saw the particular cute aesthetics of those axolotls. I didn’t get into this until I joined the particular Discord in August. 1 day after joining the discord, I bought 3 axies which includes a mystic (#618) due to help of early neighborhood members.
Exactly what attracted me most was your amazing art and the neighborhood. Had the community not already been this strong, I would have forgotten the project.
What’s your preferred Axie memory?
I don’t have one particular storage but several. Some of them are usually participating in the OG competitions before our current PvP system.
Others are sniping awesome mystics and viewing some friends raging because their funds were too slow to achieve Coinbase in time.
The final memory is simply reading through all those messages about how helpful were the tools I constructed for the community.
What are some of the matters you’ve built for the Axie community? What motivated you to definitely create these?
My most famous one is The city Bot. It can do a couple of things! Show an Axie, post big sales within the #marketplace, DM people each time a specific Axie went within sale, when an user obtained ether from a sale, breed of dog Axies, show Axie EXP, get their win rates, not to mention, say “Good morning” to the beloved moderator, Henri!
My latest the first is the $WOA token that will hopefully many people in the community possess heard about.
Wrap/unwrap Roots Axies via tokens permitting instant liquidity. It has achieved over 1 million dollar in trading volume on the first 4 days of the launch on Uniswap. I had been surprised how well it had been received.
I am motivated to challenge personally to become a better developer plus strengthen the community’s consumer experience.
I really want to work full-time in the Blockchain scene plus starting out with community tasks is the best way to improve your abilities and get feedback on the tips you built!
What’s the most difficult part about building Axie tools?
Whenever starting out, getting used to the Blockchain environment. Most data is going to be fetched from the chain so you need a decent understanding about how it works. After that, as long as you may google, and understand basic practices in coding, you are able to pretty much build anything.
I suck at internet dev for example so that is why I decided to maintain improving my discord Robot! (Shout out to Clumsi, ODP, Freak who build amazing web apps! )
Any sneak highs into what you’re constructing right now?
I’m participating to P3terpan’s NFT hackathon! Check out their own discord server if you want to find what something I’m focusing on right now; )
Can not say much yet you’ll hear about it shortly.
Hint: It’s NFT based!
Exactly what would you like to see from the Lunacia SDK?
Very hard to say! Probably allowing game devs to reuse your own in-game assets in projects/games and allowing them to deploy their very own smart contracts inside Ronin to create a new ecosystem for game inside the Axie galaxy.
What is your background in advancement?
We started learning to code three years ago making Unity online games thanks to some Udemy program. I quickly dropped out there the course to build my very own projects (games, analytic equipment, discord bots) before signing up for a dev school this past year and ultimately learning Solid design which allows me to do lots of things inside the NFT plus DeFi scene.
What excites you the majority of about Axie’s future?
Axie is trying to develop this massive world exactly where people can play, gain and ultimately let the local community govern the direction how the project is taking. I wish to be part of this revolution.
I’m most enthusiastic about what land gameplay is going to be all about and what will be the implications in the long term.
