Origin of the Origins

If you have ever wondered what is the lowest Axie ID available for purchase, we have got you covered: This adorable little Beast Axie, aptly named πŸ†, is one of the Origin Axies. Origin Axies occupy most of the lowest Axie IDs, and are the first of their kind in the Axie Universe. Back in April 2018 when Axie Infinity was first launched, Origins Axies went on sale for an average of 0.22 ETH. Axie Origin Coins (AOC) were also given out if someone bought an Axie using your referral, and these AOCs could then be redeemed at a 5-to-1 ratio for Origin Axies. So what is so special about these Axies? Not only do Origins come with a special tag, they will also perform a special victory pose flex when they win in the Arena. There can only ever be 4088 Origin Axies in total. As of today, there are 3,291 Origins. Some Origins have not yet been redeemed (and some will never be) since there are still unspent AOCs out there. With the #5 Axie ID, πŸ† has the current honor of having the lowest Axie ID on the Ronin marketplace. Should you ever come across a 1-vs-1-whoever-strikes-first-wins-it-all situation between πŸ† and Axie #30979, you know whom to put your money on… But what about its cousins #1 - #4? Our guess is that these Origin Axies likely still reside in the land of Ethereum across the bridge, biding their time to make an appearance in Ronin.
