- AXSUSDT Weekly Price Chart Analysis
The AXSUSDT price chart entered an uptrend after the RSI closed above the level-75. Ever since the close above the RSI level-75, the price failed to reach the level-25, an indication that we are still in strong uptrend.
Following the start of the uptrend by the RSI, buying pressure continues to increase on the weekly chart of the AXSUSDT viewed as a price close above bearish inside bar on 18 Jan ’21, and 28 June ’21.
Last weeks price closed below the open, signaling another bearish inside bar, setting the stage for another price surge above the 13 Sep ’21. Divergence patterns on the AXSUSDT chart also confirm the uptrend with hidden bullish divergence on 01 March ’21 and 24 May ’21. A third bullish divergence pattern is gathering momentum.
Forming a confluence with another impending breakout of resistance [71.54], we could see an upbeat of the AXS price.
Market Cap projections (10x, 100x, etc.) and demand/supply scenario for the AXS Token
The AXS token has a max supply of 270 million, and about 23% currently in circulation.
One of the ways we measure demand for a crypto project is to pair its token against Bitcoin BTC.
As shown above, the AXSBTC Weekly chart reveals a massive demand for the AXS token compared to Bitcoin, with the bulls breaking through crucial resistance levels. Also on the chart, is a hidden bullish divergence pattern on 31 May ’21, and a more recent one building up after the 13 September resistance.
Following the project review, fixed maximum supply, and price analysis done so far, we expect the AXS price to skyrocket by about 5X in the long term.

Axie Infinity has quite a few, but good quality partnerships and collaboration with;
- MakerDAO: A decentralized stable coin insurance platform. Here, Axie Infinity could help MakerDAO for their in-game DAI reward distribution.
- SAMSUNG, where the Axie Infinity game is currently available in the Samsung wallet.
- Kyber Network. An on-chain liquidity protocol. Axie Infinity integrated with Kyber Network for meta-transaction token swaps during the Land sale in early 2019.
Analyzing the top two gaming tokens regarding Axie Infinity core features include;
- ENJIN COIN: As the third based Crypto gaming token valued at $1.12B, Enjin coin is an ethereum based cryptocurrency used to back the value of NFT in gaming, creating and transfer of tokens for gaming across platforms, but it’s limited in creation as in Axie Infinity.
- DECENTRALAND (MANA): valued at about 1.25B is the second largest gaming token also ethereum based, focused solely on creating high latency 3D virtual reality, making it less susceptible to Axie Infinity core features but paves a driveway in virtual improvement for AXS. Axie Infinity stands to gain more tips for optimal improvement from its direct and indirect competitors.
Axie Infinity charges a 4.25% fee when players buy and sell Axie NFTs in its marketplace and collecting fees for breeding axies to create new ones. These fees are paid as Axie Infinity Shards (AXS)
For Enjin Wallet, estimated transaction fees are set automatically to allow for a quick transaction. Therefore, they are not fixed like Axie Infinity.
Last, for Decentraland (MANA) the fees aren’t fixed, just like Enjin. Transaction fees on binance shows an exorbitant amount of fees such as 43.0 MANA for a transaction, making Axie Infinity the best among its competitors.
Decentraland runs on the Ethereum blockchain, which runs on the energy proof of work consensus algorithm. Same goes for Axie Infinity and Enjin, hence no comparison as they all run on the ethereum blockchain.
