March 1, 2022: Updated to reference removal of SLP earnings from Adventure and Daily Quests after Season 20 update.

In the Axie Infinity ecosystem, SLP is one of the most important resources for players to earn.

SLP – or Smooth Love Potions – is a token earned in-game, with its primary use being to breed Axie. While SLP is available to buy as an ERC-20 token and is listed on Binance, many players opt to earn their SLP directly through gameplay.

Here’s how to earn SLP in Axie Infinity, along with a few tips.

How To Earn SLP in Axie Infinity

There were three key methods to earning SLP in Axie Infinity, but this has since been reduced to only one method - through the arena. Keep in mind that in the future, Axie Infinity could opt to adjust the SLP rewards depending on the inflation rate, for example.

Here’s a look at the current ways to earn SLP.

Win PVP Arena Battles

The Arena Mode is one of the most lucrative ways to earn SLP. However, it is also one of the most difficult, as you come up against other players.

By winning Arena matches, you could earn up to 14 SLP per victory, if your MMR rating is above 2500. At an MMR of 0-999, this is just 1 SLP.

However, unlike Adventure Mode, participating in Arena battles costs 1 Energy. Energy refreshes over time, depending on the number of Axies owned.

Owning over 20 Axies, for example, nets you 5 Energy every two hours, or 60 Energy per day. Owning between 3-9 Axies or 10-19 Axies will grant your 5 Energy in 6 and 3 hours, respectively.

This means that, theoretically, if you spent 60 Energy on 60 matches at the highest level, you could earn up to 840 SLP in one day.

Daily Quests and Adventure Mode No Longer Reward SLP

Completing Axie Infinity’s three daily quests used to see you rewarded with 25 SLP, but the Axie Infinity Season 20 update meant that these quests no longer give out SLP.

Similarly, the Axie Infinity PVE adventure mode, that used to allow players to earn up to 50 SLP per day, no longer will reward players SLP.

Sky Mavis made these decisions to balance the tokenomics of SLP, but did state that the adventure mode SLP rewards could come back in the future with some burn mechanics.
