Important details when breeding Axies in Axie Infinity
There are many factors that can determine how efficient this process is for you and how much profit you get out of the process. Axies crossing. The first thing we must take into account is in the degree of purity of both AxiesThe higher the degree of purity, the greater the possibility of having an Axie of the same type with very good cards.
An Axie with a good level of purity will be most expensive on the marketIf the Axie is of low purity, with normal cards and not very outstanding qualities, you can sell the adult offspring at a good price and get a return on your investment. On the other hand, if the Axie is of low purity, with normal cards and not very outstanding qualities, it is possible that the return on investment will be minimal.
There is also the case when you want to "duplicate"This process is more selective and complex than any other. We will need 2 Axies with the same genes and cards, for this we can search in the Marketplace and filter them according to the quality we want. When crossing these two Axies, the chance that the egg will come out identical to the parents is quite high.
We recommend do not breed Axies until after 4th brood if it is an Axie with a market value between 400$ and 600$, then the return on investment will be zero or you will end up in losses. This process is recommended with Axies that have a high market value and their offspring can be sold much more expensive than the breeding process cost, which is very high from the 5th breeding onwards.
Take into account the market, if the price of the AXS and the SLP had a drop, take advantage of it for reproduce your Axies. This will give you a better return on your investment in dollars.
