The Axies displayed at https://axieinfinity.com/ are manifestations of their “DNA” stored on the Ethereum blockchain in the form of ERC20 tokens. Some of the encoded information is rendered as visible body Parts, while some of it is “recessive,” allowing for the possibility of some hidden features to be passed down to offspring or to Evolve into existence after an upgrade.
The current breeding fee collected by Axie Infinity is .005 ETH and the appropriate amount of Gas should be included for the network to process the transaction. Axies also spend SLP for each breed. After breeding, each Axie will require a significantly greater amount of SLP to reproduce again.
Successful breeding sessions will produce an egg. After 24 hours, eggs automatically transform into larvae. Larva gain the ability to morph into "Petite" Axies after an additional 48 hours. The transformation from larva to petite does not conclude, however, until the appropriate transaction is entered into the blockchain. A similar process is required for each Axie to reach adulthood - a 48 hour wait, followed by entering a transaction into the blockchain.
