👾 The Great Migration- Ronin Phase 2 is live!
ACTION REQUIRED: migrate your Axies and deposit your ETH/AXS/SLP to Ronin
Ronin phase 2 is live! You can now migrate your Axies to Ronin for a smooth breeding, token claiming, and marketplace experience!
Deposit ETH/AXS/SLP for use on Ronin here.
Time’s up, let’s do this.
We’re proud to announce that Ronin phase 2 is live!
Ronin is bringing economic freedom to an entirely new generation of Axie players by streamlining user experience and reducing the burden of expensive gas fees.
Building on Ethereum Mainnet is a bit like training inside the hyperbolic time chamber from Dragonball Z. We’ve had pressure weighing on us in the form of high transaction fees. This was good. In order to grow, we needed to be exceptional.
Now it’s time to see what we can do when we take our destiny into our own hands.
What this means:
You can now breed, buy, and sell Axies on Ronin, our Ethereum sidechain. The Axie marketplace, breeding, and morphing contracts have been paused so Ronin is the only place to perform these actions.
You can now claim AXS and SLP rewards on Ronin.
We’ve taken a key step towards scaling our digital nation to millions of users.
Here’s how to migrate to Ronin in 3 easy steps:
1. Make sure you have the Ronin wallet installed on Desktop.
2. Migrate your Axies to Ronin from your Marketplace Dashboard. You can do this on desktop only, for now. Just press the “Transfer to Ronin” button and then sign two messages: one on Ethereum and one on Ronin. Easy peasy!
3. Deposit ETH, AXS, and SLP to Ronin. SLP & AXS have been upgraded.* Your old tokens will be automatically upgraded when any amount is deposited to Ronin. For example, if you have 200 old AXS and then deposit 100 to Ronin, you will now have 100 upgraded AXS on Ronin and 100 upgraded AXS on Ethereum.
If you want to keep these tokens on Ethereum, upgrade them here. Keep in mind that simply depositing AXS/SLP to Ronin saves you gas as you’re upgrading and depositing with 1 transaction.

You can now do up to 100 free breeds and marketplace actions each day (per address)! Each seed phrase can hold 20 addresses right now, so each seed phrase can do 2,000 transactions each day. We are working on expanding these limits.
For Scholarship Owners
Make additional addresses under 1 seed phrase (the current limit is 20).
Migrate each account to a separate address.
If you have more than 20 scholars, please know that the limit will be increased. You have 1 month before your Ethereum Axies will stop being recognized within the battle application. For now, you can use multiple chrome profiles to have different instances of the wallet installed. Make sure to keep your seed phrase for each of these wallets safe!

Please note that you will only be able to continue using your Ethereum Axies in-game for 1 month. After this 1 month grace period, you will not be able to use your Axies inside Axie games built by Sky Mavis such as the current Community Alpha.
👀 Key Changes
The breeding fee has been changed from .005 ETH to 1 AXS. We will rebalance this aspect in the future based on market signals. The SLP requirements per breed are still the same, but we will be monitoring this closely and may adjust it after we have some new data. We discussed adjusting it to start off, but we want to gather some data first. The first adjustment might happen as soon as Tuesday.
The AXS from the breeding fee from this point forward will be earmarked for the Community Treasury. This means that Sky Mavis no longer has centralized ownership of the breeding fee!
There’s another breeding-related change that we’ll let you discover yourself!
Axies no longer require transactions to grow from the juvenile stages. 5 days after an Axie is bred, you will click a button to morph you Axie from egg to adult. This means genes will be revealed after 5 days now. All current larvae are now eggs. All petites are now adults.
Japanese Axies can no longer be bred. They are retired!
The old Axie contracts on Ethereum have been paused. This includes the marketplace contract, breeding contract, and morphing contract. The Axies you had listed for sale have been de-listed so you need to put them up again on the Ronin marketplace. The old Axie tokens are now non-transferable fossils that denote your participation in a golden age of NFT exploration. Less than 50,000 addresses will ever have these tokens serving as a badge of honor. Congrats!
You will be able to migrate these old Axie tokens to Ronin at any time in the future, but they will stop showing up in-game on May 29th.
If you’re a 3rd party developer and need guidance regarding tracking Ronin data or building tools please refer to this document.
SLP has been re-branded to Smooth Love Potion. Turn on the Luther Vandross 😏
Fiat Gateway- We’re working with a Fiat provider so you will be able to buy ETH and AXS directly through your Ronin wallet.
Mobile Migration- We’re working on a Ronin mobile application so those without access to computers can join us on Ronin!
A Ronin Dex- You need to be able to buy and sell SLP, AXS, etc on Ronin without having to send them to Ethereum or a decentralized exchange. This is one of our top priorities.
Ronin to Ethereum Bridge for Axies- You’ll be able to send your Axies back to Ethereum if you like in the future. Please note that the old Axie and marketplace contracts have been paused to prevent malicious activity. We decided to launch without this feature for now because we know our community has been hurting with the current system.
AXS Airdrop- We haven’t forgotten about this airdrop for our supporters. This reward will be sent to your Ronin wallets as we get closer to AXS staking. We always fulfill our promises.
Algorithmic Breeding Calculation- In the future we (along with governance perhaps) will use the amount of AXS and SLP required to breed to make sure that Axie population is growing at a healthy rate. The rate must be fast enough to accommodate new users but not so fast that owning a real Axie doesn’t feel special. The data gathering process for this starts now.
Expanding the 100 transaction per account limit- We are currently working on systems to allow power users to use more than this allotment of transactions. Thanks for your patience on this!
Welcome to the age of Ronin.
