Just after two weeks following the publishing of the blog post, the Axie Infinity team made an announcement of the 1.1.0a update, with alterations to the dynamics of the game, and this part was not too pretty for some. 

The Axie Infinity has fundamentally implemented some changes to the Ronin Block Explorer along with some bug fixes. Also, it is important to remember that recently, Jeff Zirlin, has revealed that the team was working on a DEX to facilitate the exchange of tokens inside the Axie Infinity ecosystem.

The governance token has remained above the EMA20 since September 28, giving signs of bullish momentum among the markets. 

On the other hand, SLP is the token that the players receive as a reward for winning battles or executing daily tasks. It has been noticed that the price of SLP has been below the EMA20 since July 28, and is currently changing hands at $0.07.
