The latest update of the Ronin wallet mobile app has left users in Cuba and other countries without access to their Axie Infinity wallet. The exclusion factor of the new version of the Ronin app is that it prevents its use while a VPN service is active.

CryptoNews contacted several Axie Infinity players from Cuba who were affected by the latest update to the Ronin app. They explained that the only way to play online and access Axie Infinity pages and tools is through a VPN.

Access to the Ronin portfolio via PC has not been affected.

Fortunately for Cuban Axie Infinity players, the VPN usage issue only affects the Ronin app for mobile devices. These users can therefore continue to access their wallets and other Ronin and Axie Infinity tools via a VPN-enabled PC.

The Cubans’ fear is that these measures will then be extended to other devices. This would completely exclude them from the Axie Infinity ecosystem, although they would be able to play, they would be deprived of benefits such as buying and selling axes. and other activities NFT and to claim the prizes they can get at events or at the end of each season.

An alternative solution for Axie Infinity players in Cuba.

Some users of the Ronin mobile wallet app commented on Twitter that they did not lose access, even using a VPN. Their strategy was simple: do not update the app.. Since the restriction on VPN use in the Ronin app was present in the most recent version, it was sufficient to avoid updating the app.

Although avoiding updating the Ronin app would allow users to maintain access to the wallet on their mobile device, this cannot be considered a permanent solution; users would still be unfairly restricted to an older version that is more vulnerable to attacks and has fewer tools available than the newer version.
