Axie Infinity: How to Play on iPhone or Android

Axie Infinity players have the opportunity to earn money by playing the game on their mobile devices. Although the game is available on PC, you can take your smartphone anywhere with you in your pocket. However, getting Axie Infinity on your mobile device isn't as easy as downloading it from the App Store.

Instead, you can only get the mobile versions from the official website or third-party providers. It's always much safer to get it from the first, because there's less risk. Read on to find out more.

How to Play Axie Infinity on an iPhone

iPhone users have the short end of the stick when it comes to getting the game. Signing up for cryptocurrency wallets can already be time consuming due to the amount of money involved. However, there is another possible reason why you might have to wait a bit before you can play Axie Infinity.

TestFlight is an app that other app developers can deploy to their users. Developers will let users test their software, which requires an approval process. For Axie Infinity, players must use TestFlight and apply as a tester. After being approved, they can download the app and start playing.

Before you can play Axie Infinity, you will also need to own Ethereum, as the game's special cryptocurrencies are based on this token. This means you will need an Ethereum wallet like MetaMask or something legal in your country.

Another requirement is the Ronin Wallet, this is how you will store all your Smooth Love Potions (SLP), Axie Infinity Tokens (AXS) and Wrapped Ethereum (WETH). While you may not need the last option, you earn the first two just by playing the game.

Now that you know what Axie Infinity needs, we can get into the process.

Get MetaMask

We will use MetaMask as an example because it is easily linked to Axie Infinity. You can also buy or trade for Ethereum using it, all from your smartphone.

  1. Go to the App Store.
  2. Find and install MetaMask.
  3. Sign up for a MetaMask account.

MetaMask is how you will buy Ethereum; never reveal any of these credentials to anyone. If someone with malicious intent gains access to your wallet, you're in big trouble.

Get Ronin Wallet

Then you will download Ronin Wallet, because you cannot have an Axie Infinity account without it. It is also available for smartphone users.

  1. Open the App Store.
  2. Find the Ronin Wallet and install it.
  3. Sign up for an account.

Both of these processes can take some time, as you may have to wait for approval. Once both are ready, you can go to the Axie Market and get at least three Axies. You can create an Axie Infinity account using your Ronin Wallet account.

Install TestFlight and Axie Infinity

Now, with Axies in hand, you are ready to download the game. The developers will only allow players with Axies to get the app. That's why you have these instructions last:

  1. Download TestFlight from the App Store.
  2. Install the app, but don't do anything with it yet.
  3. Go to the official Axie Infinity website.
  4. Go to the download page.
  5. Choose the iOS version and download it.
  6. Install Axie Infinity.
  7. After that, open TestFlight.
  8. Apply to become an Axie Infinity tester.
  9. Wait for approval.
  10. When you get approved to be a tester, open the Axie Infinity app.
  11. Get a QR code and submit it.
  12. Log in and play the game.

Finally, you can start earning money to cover your Axies. Stock players don't have to pay anything except a reduction in their winnings.

How to Play Axie Infinity on an Android Device

Fortunately, Android users don't need to use TestFlight at all. Once they have three Axies on their account, they can download the app and start playing. Other than that, the process is almost identical.

Here is what you need to do:

Download MetaMask

If you are not a fan of MetaMask or it is not available in your country, you can replace it with another exchange.

  1. Open the Google Play Store.
  2. Download MetaMask and install it.
  3. Sign up for an account.

Make sure you have a bank account and that it contains fiat money. You will need money to buy Ethereum, and Ethereum is for the three Axies you need to acquire before starting the game.

Download Ronin Wallet

Just like on iOS, you will need to have Ronin Wallet on your Android device. It's not that you can't use your phone's browser, but installing it is much more convenient. This way you don't have to switch tabs all the time.

  1. Search the Ronin Wallet in the Google Play Store.
  2. Download it.
  3. Install the app.
  4. Sign up for an account.

When you play the game, all of your winnings will go to the Ronin Wallet. It's essential to protect your credentials because you don't want someone else stealing your SLP and AXS.

All you need to do now is use the Ronin Wallet account to start your Axie Infinity account and purchase three Axies.

Get the app

Without the need to download TestFlight, there is no longer any reason to wait. Once you have your Axies, it's time to get Axie Infinity:

  1. Go to the game's official website.
  2. Head to the download page.
  3. Choose the Android download option.
  4. Install the app.
  5. Open the app and submit your QR code.
  6. Log in and start playing.

This is how you get the game on Android. It's usually much faster than on iPhone, thanks to the lack of TestFlight approvals.

Earn money on the go

With the help of Axie Infinity, many Filipino gamers quit their original jobs just to gamble and earn money. Most of them play on smartphones as they are easier to get in the Philippines. Today, they are the most important part of the player base.
