In this article, I’ll explain how to start a scholarship for those who want to start a scholarship for Axie Infinity but don’t know what to do.
What is a scholarship?
Axie Infinity, where you can get virtual currency by playing games, is becoming popular in the world as a representative of “Play to earn”.
In “Axie Infinity”, you can earn virtual currency SLP (short for smooth love potion) by winning in-game battles.
It’s such a nice Axie Infinity, but in order to actually start the game, you need to have three Axies (in-game characters).
However, even with a cheap Axie, it costs about 100,000 yen (as of October 1, 2021) for three bodies, and it is not a situation where anyone can easily start.
* In the Philippines, where Axie Infinity is popular, the average monthly salary is 40,000 to 50,000 yen, so it is an image of spending two months’ salary on the game.
A system called “scholarship” was born to overcome such a situation.
Scholarships include a “manager” who rents out Axie and a “scholarship” who borrows and plays games.
“Scholarr” is a form of sharing the rewards earned in the game with the manager instead of borrowing Axie from the “manager”.
This system has expanded explosively, and people who want to do Axie Infinity scholars write a lot on Discord (chat service for gamers) saying “I want to be a scholar!”.
The scholarship manager basically only responds to scholar inquiries (support) and processes payments at the end of the month, and there is almost no time constraint.
If you are curious about what kind of interaction you actually have with the manager in scholars, please read this article.
Things to worry about before you start
Will Axie be stolen by a scholar?
Scholars cannot move or sell Axie.
Scholars logs in to Axie Infinity with “email address and password” or “QR code”.
With that information, you will not be able to access the Ronin Wallet that owns the Axie, so the Axie will not be stolen.
* If you know the Ronin Wallet password, the Axie and rewards will be stolen, so never give the Ronin Wallet password to Scholar.
The manager, on the other hand, knows the Ronin Wallet address and password, so he can move Axie to another account.
I’m not good at English, but can I become a manager?
There is no problem if you can use free translation software.
Interaction with scholars is basically character-based in chat and email.
You can communicate using Google Translate, so your English ability doesn’t matter that much.
Also, when recruiting scholars, if you add the condition that “translation is fine, but someone who can communicate in Japanese”, communication will be in Japanese, so the effort of communication will be reduced.
Can you hire Japanese as a scholar?
Even Japanese can be hired as a scholar.
Scholarships can be applied to people from any country.
Of course, if you want to do a scholarship without feeling the stress of the language barrier, you should hire a Japanese person.
How do you pay the scholar? Is it difficult?
Rewards will be sent to the Ronin Wallet address in Scholar. The operation is easy.
Payment of rewards to scholar basically sends SLP to the other party’s Ronin Wallet address (like a virtual bank account).
It is easier to operate than bank transfer and does not cost any fees.
Does the manager need to prepare any special environment?
All you need is a computer that can connect to the Internet.
Basically, there is no problem if you have a computer that can connect to the Internet.
Since it is necessary to do some detailed work such as buying and selling Axies and remittance of rewards, it is difficult to handle with just a smartphone, so prepare a computer.
Can a scholar be made even by a minor?
If you are over 18 years old, you can hire as a scholar.
Axie Infinity prohibits gameplay under the age of 18 by convention.
Therefore, it is not possible to hire a person under the age of 18 as a scholar.
Some people under the age of 18 may want to do scholars, so it’s a good idea to check your ID in advance to make sure you’re 18 or older.
Please prepare at least the following 4 points before starting.
- Cryptocurrency exchange account
- MetaMask account
- Opening a RoninWallet account
- Axie Infinity account verification (main account)
If you are not ready yet, please refer to “[All you need to read] Axie Infinity Getting Started Guide Complete Edition” on this site.
The procedure for starting a scholarship is as follows.
Create an email address for your scholar account
First, create the email address you need for your scholar account.
The scholar account requires a different email address than the manager’s main account.
You can get email addresses one by one, but if you hire a lot of scholars, it’s difficult, so we recommend the alias function of Gmail.
Gmail’s alias feature allows you to use unlimited subaddresses for a single email address.
For example, if you have an email address “firstname.lastname@example.org”
You can use an email address in the form of.
What’s more, emails reach your main Gmail address, so you don’t have to set up and manage a large number of email addresses one by one.
First, click the gear mark on the upper right of the Gmail reception screen.
Then click Show All Settings.
Click “Accounts and Imports”.
Click “Add another email address”.
The email address addition screen will be displayed in a separate window, so enter your name and the email address you want to create.
Enter your e-mail address by adding any characters after the user name.
(Here, as an example, the address with “+2021080” after the user name is set)
After entering your email address, click the Next Step button.
The alias email address has been added.
If successful, the added email address will be displayed on the settings screen.
Create a Ronin Wallet account for scholars
First, launch your browser and click the humanoid button in the upper right corner of the Ronin Wallet.
Click Create Account.
Enter your Account Name and click Create.
You can freely decide the account name with a name that you can understand.
When hiring a large number of scholars, it is troublesome to think about and enter each name, so assign a control number such as “A1” or “A2”.
Display the RoninWallet and click the humanoid button in the upper right.
Click the sub-account name you just created.
Next, click “Login with Ronin Wallet” on the official website .
* If you are logged in with another account, log out first.
The Ronin Wallet signature screen will appear in a separate window, so click “Confirm” to log in.
When you log in, the name input screen will be displayed first, so enter the name of your account and click “Save”.
Next, set the email address and password for login.
Click Set up email & password.
Enter the email address and password for your sub-account and click Confirm.
* Enter the password by yourself.
After making the settings up to this point, the authentication number will be sent to the email address you entered as shown below, so check it.
Enter the verification number you received on the previous screen and click “Confirm”.
When the authentication is completed, the main screen will be displayed.
Buy 3 Axies for scholars
From here, I will tell you how to actually purchase Axie, but choosing Axie is super important.
Choosing a weird Axie will affect your bottom line.
The following article explains how to choose, so if you are uncertain, please read it before purchasing.
After logging out of the sub-account, log in to the official website Marketplace with your main account (your account).
Narrow down the Axies by the search conditions on the left side of the Marketplace screen.
On the Marketplace
- “BREED COUNT”
- “MYSTIC (number of special parts)”
- “PURENESS (number of body parts of the same CLASS)”
- “OTHER (special Axie)”
- “Parts (body parts name)”
You can narrow down by such conditions.
To buy an Axie, click on the Axie you want and click “Buy now” on the individual screen.
There are two types of purchase prices for Axie: fixed prices and auction prices.
Normally, it is often listed on the Marketplace at a fixed price, but in the case of an auction price, the price changes over time.
In the case of a fixed price, the following display is displayed.
Next, in the case of auction format[in ○○ hour] Is written.
As you can see, the current price is 0.091 ETH, but the time and price are displayed next to it.
The price of this Axie can drop to 0.056 ETH.
Looking at it one hour later, the price changed.
Even if it is called an auction format, it does not mean that you are competing for a successful bid, but it is a good idea to decide in advance “how much you will buy” because it is a first-come-first-served basis.
Some can be bought cheaper over time, so once you get used to it, it’s a good idea to look for bargains on the marketplace.
The final confirmation screen will appear, so click “Confirm”.
This completes the purchase. Click Close.
Click “My account” on the official page.
Then click “Inventory”.
* It may take a few minutes for the purchased Axie to be reflected in Inventory, so if it is not reflected immediately, please check again after a while.
This completes the purchase of Axie.
Move Axie to your Ronin Wallet account for scholars
* There is no fee for Gift.
* If you give it, the level of Axie will return to 1, so be careful not to make a mistake in selecting the Axie to send.
* Gifted Axies cannot earn SLP for 24 hours after being sent.
Click “Inventory” on the “My Account” screen of the official page.
The Axies you own will be displayed, so click the Axies you want to send to the scholar.
Axie’s individual screen will be displayed, so click “Gift” in the upper right.
Enter the address of the Ronin Wallet for scholar created earlier in the input field, and click “Gift”.
The final confirmation screen will be displayed in a separate window, so click “Confirm”.
After that, if Axie arrives at the sent Ronin Wallet address, it is successful.
For confirmation, switch to the scholar Ronin Wallet and open the screen to see how many Axies are.
You can only run Gifts one at a time, so repeat this three times.
Hire a scholar
People who want to scholar are writing their own appeal on this channel.
Basically, we will search for a person who looks good from this and negotiate with DM (send a message directly).
If you write it, you will receive a large amount of 10 to 50 DMs in about 30 minutes. We will select and negotiate with motivated people and people who look good.
If you receive a certain number of DMs, you can delete the original application guidelines and you will not receive any more DMs.
The content I wrote was like this.

I’m looking for a scholar for Axie Infinity.
I would like to hire a total of 9 people this time.
If you would like to apply, please read the following conditions and send me a DM if it is OK.
1. Have a personal computer in addition to a mobile phone (preferably if you have a WiFi environment)
2. Have the address of Ronin Wallet
3. Due to the measures taken by the Japanese tax office, you must send me the image of the ID and the image of the ID and you together before the contract.
4. Sign the receipt when you receive the reward SLP

8. Apply for friends on each other’s Facebook page. If you don’t have a Facebook page, you can follow your Twitter account.

10. Please check the contents of the contract in advance.
11. Add the word “Otaku” to the end of the DM
Hi, I’m a Japanese Axie Infinity game manager.
I’m looking for Axie Infinity scholars.
This time I would like to hire 9 people in total.
If you are interested in applying, please read the following requirements and please send me DM if you are ok with them.
1. Have a mobile phone and a computer (WiFi access is preferred)
2. Have a Ronin Wallet address.
3. Be able to send me a picture of your ID and a picture of you and your ID together before you sign the contract to comply with the Japanese tax office.
4. Sign the receipt when you receive the SLP for the reward.
5. Reward payment will be closed at the end of the month and paid around the 10th of the following month.
6. The percentage of remuneration will be 70% for the manager and 30% for the scholar.
7. Earn at least 100 SLPs per day except for the first week.
8. Please send me a friend request on Facebook. If you don’t have a Facebook account, you can follow me on Twitter.
9. Send me your email address for emergency contact.
10. Confirm the contents of the contract.
11. Put the word “Otaku” at the end of your DM.
As for the conditions, it is better to have at least this much.
- Payment terms (payment on the 10th of the month following the end of the month)
- Reward ratio (Manager7: Sholar3)
- Quota (earn at least 100 SLP a day)
- Have the address of Ronin Wallet
- Good internet environment (preferably Wifi)
- Presentation of ID (It is possible to take a picture of the ID and the person and send it)
Regarding the reward ratio, at present, there are overwhelmingly many scholar reserve forces who want to play the game, so even if the reward ratio is low, it is mostly accepted.
* If you can’t use Discord, it’s safe to ask for your Facebook account and email address so that we can contact you in case of emergency.
To prove that the scholar you are hiring is a real person (certification to the tax office, etc.), ask the other party to send you an ID (identification card) and an image of the person in a DM (message).
The actual image looks like this.
You can hire a scholar without a contract, but in that case, the money you pay for the scholar (the scholar’s share) may not be expensed.
It’s a good idea to have a contract to prove that you’re hiring a scholar as an outsourcer.
The outsourcing contract I have with scholar mainly describes the following items.
- Outsourced business content (consignment of business to play games and acquire SLP)
- Contract period (1 month)
- Contract renewal (automatic renewal if there is no special offer from both parties)
- Attribution of rights of deliverables (all rights belong here)
- Consignment fee percentage and payment method (by manager and scholar share, remittance to Ronin Wallet)
- Confidentiality (Information learned about the contract will not be disclosed to third parties)
- Contract cancellation clause (If you violate the contract conditions, cancel the contract without notifying the other party)
- Matters that do not have a contract (Matters that do not have a contract will be decided after mutual consultation)
You may be wondering, “How do you make a contract with a foreigner?”, But I signed my signature on a paper contract created in Word, took an image of it, and sent it to scalar by DM.
The scalar will check the contents, sign the image and send it back.
Pass the Axie Infinity sub-account to Scalar
Tell Scholar the email address and password of your activated Scholar account in Discord DM.
Make sure you can log in to scholars and start the game.
Issue a QR code from “Show QR” in My Account and have them log in to the app.
A lot of basic information such as how to log in is introduced on Youtube and blogs, and Scholar himself is surprisingly familiar with this.
Have the scholar itself issue the QR code for login.
The QR code is valid for 2 weeks, so if you switch it, it is better to have it issued by yourself.
There are many things to do, but once you get used to it, you can complete the process from creating an account to starting the game in about an hour.
In fact, I hired nine scholars in parallel and completed them in three hours.
How to check the performance of scholars
It’s good to have a contract, but you’re wondering if scholar is making good money, right?
There are tools that are useful for the daily management of such scholars.
- Get one day SLP
- Average SLP
- Axie configuration used
- Scholar battle log video
- Manager’s share
It is very convenient because you can check such things.
Let’s add the scholars we manage.
Click Add New Account.
Enter the required information and click “Track Account”.
|Scholar name||Scholar name|
(It doesn’t have to be your real name. Used for display)
|Public Ronin address with the ronin: prefix||Ronin Wallet address for the account used by scholar|
|Manager percentage||Manager compensation percentage|
|Scholar percentage||Scholar reward percentage|
When completed, the scholar grade will be displayed at the bottom of the screen.
Make sure you see the name of the scholar you just added.
How to pay a reward to a scholar
The procedure for paying a reward to a scholar is as follows.
SLP will be unlocked and available in 2 weeks from the start of the game, and will be unlocked in 2 weeks from the previous Claim (acquisition) from the second time onwards.
Claims are made from the My Account screen of each scholar and sent to the sub-account Ronin Wallet.
Calculate scholar rewards
First, let’s check with each other how much SLP you earned that month.
Ask scholar to send you an in-game Inventory screen on the payment date (closing date).
This is taken as proof to match each other’s perceptions.
Just in case, to reduce the risk of receiving complaints from scholars, “I should have made more money”.
Once the SLP quantity is reported, calculate your scholar share.
Move SLP from in-game to Ronin Wallet, a sub-account for scholars
Display the My Account screen of Axie’s official website with a scholar sub-account, and click “Claim Tokens”.
Click “Claim SLP” in the SMOOTH LOVE POTION part.
Click “Claim SLP now” on the confirmation screen.
Click Confirm on the Ronin Wallet signature screen.
The in-game SLP has now been moved to the Scholar sub-account Ronin Wallet.
Send SLP to scholar Individual Ronin Wallet
Then send this SLP to the scholar individual Ronin Wallet.
Display the RoninWallet screen and click “Send”.
Enter the required information and click “Next”.
|TO||Remittance destination Ronin Wallet address|
(Enter the scholar address here)
|ASSET||Currency to remit|
(Let’s choose SLP)
|AMOUNT||Quantity of currency you want to transfer|
(Let’s specify the quantity of SLP)
* There is no charge for SLP remittance between Ronin Wallets.
Click Confirm on the signature screen.
This completes the remittance process.
Get your receipt signed
The receipt can be in a standard format, but I have the scholar signed by a simple receipt with the following items:
- Who paid (= your name)
- Payment date
- Receipt No
- Address of the other party (= actual address of scholar)
- RoninWallet address of the payee (= Scholar RoninWallet address)
- Amount paid (= scholar share)
- Receipt sign field
* Please check the items and format of the receipt with your tax accountant after creating it.
So far, I have explained how to start a scholarship.
For those who want to know the actual situation of managers, there is an article about the success stories and failure stories of managers, so if you read this as well, it will be easier to imagine the reality of the manager business.
