Axie Infinity is a trending P2E game in today’s blockchain gaming market with a two-token mechanism that allows players to make stable profits. However, for those who do not know about the cryptocurrency market, joining Axie Infinity has many difficulties.
The question is:
Can we play Axie Infinity without first learning about crypto/blockchain?
Even though there are many obstacles, joining Axie Infinity is not impossible for those who have never heard of cryptocurrency or blockchain. Playing Axie Infinity is simple and can be used in other Play-to-Earn games with just a few basic skills.
Here’s everything you need to start playing Axie Infinity:
1 — Binance Account
This will be the beginning of the story, when entering the cryptocurrency market you need to have your own Binance account. Find out details here.
From Binance, you can use cash to buy cryptocurrencies for playing Axie, such as Ethereum (ETH).
To use cash to buy cryptocurrency via Binance P2P, read the details here.
Once you buy ETH, you will be able to transfer ETH from Binance to your Metamask wallet.
Note: When withdrawing from Binance to Metamask, you will need to pay a network fee, so please note that buying more ETH than the amount you need if you want to participate in Axie Infinity.
2 — Metamask Wallet
Metamask Wallet is a wallet used to hold cryptocurrencies, in this case, ETH.

Note: When you convert ETH from Metamask wallet to WETH in Ronin wallet to prepare to buy Axie Pet, you also need a small fee for the transaction (in ETH), so please be careful to buy more ETH than the amount you need if you want to join Axie Infinity.
All activities on Metamask wallet will require ETH as a transaction fee, so make sure your Metamask wallet always has ETH!
3 — Ronin Wallet
Ronin wallet will act as a gateway to Axie Infinity, after you finish setting up the Ronin wallet, you can play Axie Infinity.

Note: Ronin Wallet is the wallet that will be used to store your Axie Pet and SLP (profit from game) tokens, so when creating a Ronin wallet, be careful with the Secret Recovery Phrase because this will be the key, unique key to login to the wallet. If you forget or lose or even worse, give this Secret Recovery Phrase to someone else, you will most likely lose all the assets in your wallet (Pet Axie, SLP and WETH).
The funds flow will be from Binance > Metamask > Ronin and vice versa. Therefore, the above 3 elements are extremely important when participating in Axie Infinity.
4 — English
You are not mistaken, because all the skills and moves of the Axies are in English, so if you have basic English, it will be a great advantage when playing the game.
But, what if you can’t read and understand English? Simply, you can join the Axie gaming communities on Telegram or Facebook to ask other players. Don’t be shy, all pro-players start out as newbies.
