If you want to know what SLP or Smooth Love Potion is, how it can be obtained and what are its uses, we suggest that you do not miss the continuation of this article.
What is SLP or Smooth Love Potion currency and how does it work?
Because the nature of currency SLP Or to fully understand Smooth Love Potion, we must first know some points about the game Oxy Infinity. If you are one of the gamers and have the experience of playing Pokémon (Pokémon) or Tamagotchi (Tamagotchi) in your gaming career, you will easily understand the mechanism of Oxy Infinity.
In Axie Infinity, players collect and breed creatures called Axies and fight against other Axies. Each player must have three aces. The world of this game is located on a blockchain network; For this reason, each oxy is a heterogeneous token. This means that each oxy is completely unique and the value of each of them is different from the other.
In order for the game to have an independent and self-sufficient world for itself, it needs an economy, and this economy must have currency (money) to be able to stand up. The Axie Infinity economy is supported by two currencies: Smooth Love Potion or (SPL) and Axie Infinity Shards or AXS. Technically, SLP is an ERC20 token with no cap on its supply. Currently, nearly 4.3 billion units of this currency are in circulation and its market value is about 146 million dollars.
Players can earn SLP tokens by completing daily tasks or participating in in-game battles and adventures. When players’ tokens reach a certain number, they can have their own oxy. The cost of breeding and reproduction of each breed is different from the other, depending on the Breed Count parameter of its parents Oxy Or it depends on how many times they have reproduced. Each oxy can reproduce only 7 times; So, the higher this parameter is, the more SLP tokens are needed to breed and grow Oxy.
The SLP token also has a burning mechanism. After each oxy spawn, the tokens used for this spawn are burned. Players can only enter a certain amount of SLP tokens into the game every day; For this reason, it is expected that the more the players advance in the game and the reproduction process, the more the demand for the token will increase, and this supply and demand will determine the price of the token. It should be noted that the SLP token was able to register a price ceiling of $0.41 on July 4, 2021; But currently, with a price of around $0.0033, it is 99% away from its peak price.
SLP’s role in OxyInfinity’s metaverse is more than a special currency for breeding digital creatures. Players are rewarded in the form of SLP when they reach new levels or when their oxy wins battles. Also, SLP token holders can benefit from transactions of this token in digital currency exchanges. Currently, the SLP token is part of the game’s monetization stream, allowing gamers to earn money by playing on Oxy Infinity.
History and founders of SLP currency
The creator of the SLP token is the team behind the game Oxy Infinity or Sky Mavis, a company based in Vietnam. Trung Nguyen, the CEO of this company, was working as a software engineer in America; But he left his job to focus more on his project.
According to Nguyen, the capacity of creating games in blockchain depends more than anything on the blockchain on which the game is going to be built; Because many gamers don’t have much assets in popular games. Blockchain game players say the Ethereum platform helps them build their “dream game.”
Attention Don’t He is so into the world of blockchain games that he says that he created the ability to reproduce oxys in the game Oxy Infinity for those who had previously played collectible games such as Cryptokitties.
How to get SLP token?
SLP token can be obtained in three ways: 1. performing daily tasks; 2. Competing with players in arena or field (player vs. player PvP) matches; 3. Fighting between oxys in adventure mode (player versus PvE environment).
Note that after the Oxy Infinity Season 20 update, the SLP reward for completing daily tasks and adventure mode has been disabled, and players are now only rewarded for participating in Arena matches.
1. Doing daily missions (Daily Quest)
Until now, players could be rewarded with 25 SLP units by completing daily missions; Of course, this reward was for players who had a continuous presence and had completed and won 10 levels of adventure mode and 5 arena matches.
2. Arena and face-to-face (PvP) matches
Player-versus-player (PvP) field matches are the most important source of SLP rewards. In these matches, players compete with each other based on MMR or Matchmaking Rating, and before each match, they must use Energy Points. At the end and after each player wins, they are rewarded based on their MMR rating.
The better the player’s rank, the more SLP he will receive for his victory. Also keep in mind that to receive this bonus, your MMR must be at least 800. If a player runs out of energy, they can still race to increase their MMR; But he does not receive a reward. Note that the amount of player’s energy depends on the number of his oxys in the battle, and this amount is:
- 3 to 9 oxy: 20 energy
- 10 to 19 oxy: 40 energy
- 20 oxy and more: 60 energy
3. Combat in adventure mode (PvE)
The adventure mode is actually the single player part of the game, which has 36 stages, and the higher the stages, the harder the game becomes. Until now, participation in the adventure mode also brought rewards for players, and each player could earn a maximum of fifty SLP per day; But as we mentioned, after the update of the 20th chapter, the reward for the adventure mode will no longer be paid. Of course, the creators of the game have said that it is possible that in the future, the rewarding of this section will be activated again.
