Regarding the scholarship proposal for the popular game Axie Infinity, it comes to place at a time when gambling is in high demand among people residing in Venezuela, since it constitutes an alternative to generate additional income in the midst of the strong economic problems that are experienced in the South American nation.

Let us bear in mind that the scholarship system for Axie Infinity allows people to play without having to make the investment to acquire three characters, which can be especially high at this time given the popularity of the game and the increase in the price of Ethereum. The distribution of the winnings generated by the player will depend on the agreement established with the owner of the Axies, the tokens SLP generated and the price of the same in international markets.
