What are the Probable Causes of the Error?

However, technologically, error 502 shows that the webserver you are connected to serves as a proxy for relaying information to another server. The webserver is a proxy in the chain.

Therefore, error 502 occurs when the server cannot relay information from the original server due to the possible reasons listed above. Other reasons include overloading. The error is simply a temporary problem.

Previous Purchase Method

Here is the previous purchase method that gives the error 502:

  • Open MetaMask by going to the official MetaMask website in your browser.
  • Select the right plug-in or extension for your browser.
  • Download the plug-in.
  • Click the MetaMask logo in your browser.
  • Download the Ronin wallet.
  • Setting up the Ronin wallet.
  • Creating an account.
  • Connect your MetaMask wallet.

The 502 Error

Error 502 in the game is either a crashing server error. Other times it is an account sign-up error. The error occurs when you create an account with MetaMask first and then link it with Ronin.

Then, you can use the same secret recovery phrase (formerly known as a seed phrase) as your MetaMask wallet to create the Ronin wallet, effectively linking the two wallets.

After clicking login with MetaMask, the wallet displays a blank screen and becomes unresponsive. You need MetaMask to display wallet Eth before buying Axie. This is impossible when it goes blank; therefore no login and playing to earn.

1. Create your account with Ronin first.

2. Link your Ronin account with MetaMask.

3. Go to the MetaMask setting and click the link with Ronin.

4. Congratulations! You’re in!

The error is temporary, and it is not an issue with MetaMask, but a server MetaMask connects to allow linking with Ronin. Using the solution above helps clear the problem, and players can freely access the Axie Infinity marketplace and keep playing and earning.

The Future of Axie Infinity
