SLP stands for Smooth Love Potion, an essential Axie Infinity breeding ingredient. While you can get some SLP from playing the game’s modes, you can also spend cryptocurrency to get SLP quickly.

Axie Infinity: How to Buy SLP?

You’ve come to the right place if you think earning SLP from playing the game is too slow. There are several ways to buy this cryptocurrency, but the platform you use may vary depending on your country. Keep reading to learn more about buying this essential currency for more SLP.

Earning SLP for Free

If you’re playing Axie Infinity, you’re probably already familiar with spending money to play the game. However, SLP can be earned free by playing. The game modes that yield SLP include:

  • Daily Quests
  • Adventure Mode
  • Arena Mode

If you play the first two modes, you’re guaranteed to earn 75 SLP per day. The Daily Quests reward you with 25 SLP, while Adventure Mode has a maximum cap of 50.

As for Arena Mode, the amount you earn depends on several factors:

  • Arena rank
  • Max Energy capacity
  • Overall skill and win rate in Arena Mode
  • Opponent rank

Before entering the Arena, remember you must win matches to net SLP. More Axies in your inventory will also increase your Energy cap and recovery rate.

You need 20 Axies in your inventory to reach the maximum Energy cap. Thus, many players focus on getting 20 Axies and increasing their Energy for Arena Mode matches.

More Energy translates to more Arena battles, as you don’t need it in Adventure Mode to earn SLP.

You can claim SLP every 14 days, meaning you’ll have to wait before using it. As you earn plenty of it over time, it’s only a matter of patience.

Buying SLP With Cryptocurrencies

Of course, players who don’t mind spending money can always purchase some SLP. Before that’s possible, you must convert some cash into Ethereum.

Purchasing Ethereum

The first steps are to convert your fiat money into Ethereum (ETH):

  1. Register on a fiat-to-crypto exchange platform like Coinbase or Uphold.

  4. Wait for the purchase if you’re not using an instant cash deposit.

Transferring Your Ethereum

Next, you must transfer your ETH to an Altcoin exchange platform. Altcoin refers to any cryptocurrency that isn’t Bitcoin.

Some of the most popular choices are:

  • Binance
  • BitMart
  • MXC
  • HotBit
  • KuCoin
  • OKEx

Register on any of these platforms unless your country doesn’t allow for it. For example, Huobi, a Chinese crypto exchange, doesn’t let American investors trade on it.

Trade for SLP

After registering, transfer your Ethereum to the platform. Depending on the platform’s policies and other factors, it can take a few minutes or days. When your ETH reaches the exchange wallet, you can exchange it for SLP.

Ensure your exchange platform allows you to trade for SLP with Ethereum. If not, you’ll have to look for another platform.

Once you complete these initial steps, you can trade for SLP as often as you like.

Buying SLP on Ronin

All Axie Infinity players must register for Ronin Wallet, making it even easier to get SLP. With this feature, players only have to pay in fiat money to get SLP or AXS.

With the flexibility of crypto exchange platforms and services, converting money into SLP is relatively effortless. All it takes is some clicks and a little wait time. Players who want to breed their Axies quickly find buying SLP directly convenient.
