“Axie Esports coming in hot! The schedule for the second Axie Esports AXS Grant is now live, with 61 events that have 6500 $AXS in prizes. Quick breakdown of events: 35% global, 29% latam / SA, 28% SEA / Asia, 8% NA / EU / Other,” Axie Infinity tweeted.
Tournament prizes range from 40 $AXS to 150 $AXS, while the bulk of the regional events are held in South America and Asia. To be able to get considered as part of the Esports grant, organizers must make sure that their tournaments are to be livestreamed in four languages: English, Spanish, Portuguese, and Tagalog.

Though the release said that the will distribute 6500 $AXS over sixty one events, Axie’s head of Esports, Andrew “Zyori” Campbell, announced on the Axie Infinity Discord that they are not counting out the possibility of more events being added.
“The schedule for the second Axie Esports Grant is now live, with 61 events that have 6500 $AXS in prizes! This grant will extend through June, and we will likely add a few more events to the schedule in the coming months,” Zyori said through Discord. “Events supported by this grant are required to provide open qualifiers, which we know many of you are excited about. Individual tournament organizers will be making their own announcements with registration details in the coming days…”
