Axie Infinity (AXS) rallies 80% following migration to Ronin sidechain

Nonfungible tokens were one of the hottest sectors of the cryptocurrency market from the start of the year until March but as is the nature of the crypto sector, NFTs cooled off significantly in April as the hype died down and high fees on the (ETH) network hampered the ability of buyers and sellers to interact with the protocols.

The challenge of high fees eventually led some projects like Axie Infinity (AXS) and Smooth Love Potion (SLP) to migrate to other networks or embrace layer 2 solutions as a way to help lower costs. This move, along with a drastic reduction in ETH gas fees in the past two weeks could be part of the reason for the strong rally in AXS and SLP over the past week.
