Splinterlands Lunch VOUCHERS

avatar
(Edited)

I just took my wife out to a new restaurant which opened up down our street.

It was yummy Syrian style food - Asuto beef and vegetables baked into a pastry.

I am not a food blogger or a Millennial so I haven't got didn't originally get a photo of it - but it is yummy in my tummy!

[UPDATE] I went back for lunch today and remembered to take a photo.

It looked a bit lot like this, but better, with pulled Asuto rather than mince chicken.

What was particularly special about the lunch is that I paid for it using two Chaos Legion VOUCHERS.

Earlier today I had decided to sell a very small proportion of the largesse that God has bestowed upon me via the good graces of Splinterlands.

I sold some Chaos Legion Vouchers on Hive-Engine for about $19 each then bought SWAP-LTC with the proceeds.

I then withdrew the SWAP-LTC to my Crypto.com account, topped up my Visa card in SGP with the LTC and paid 122 NIS ($38) for lunch.

That's 2 VOUCHERS for a tasty lunch for two!

I chose LTC because it has good volume on Hive-Engine, has relatively low fees for on-chain transfers and I can top up my Crypto.com card with it directly.

I think this is an important demonstration that Splinterlands assets are not funny or fantasy money (even if they have fantasy names).

With just a few clicks I turned a fairly esoteric token that I have a hard time even explaining to normies into succulent food.

Despite the conversion of VOUCHERS to food involving intermediate swaps to 5 other currencies (HIVE, SWAP-LTC, LTC, SGP, NIS) I did a quick calculation and I seem to have only lost a few percent on all these conversions combined.

So Thank You Splinterlands, Hive-Engine and especially @aggroed, @yabapmatt and the team: May God bless you and you continue to go from strength to strength.

Thanks for reminding me to expressly source the photo. Its linked not copied, so the source is evident by right clicking on the photo itself.

Smaller accounts can get into a lot of trouble for these things.

If you are talking about over zealous behaviour of the spaminator bot and those associated with it then I've already made my concerns known.

Its perfectly acceptable to use a link to the URL of a photo on the web for illustration of a point as long as it is clear that you are not claiming it as yours.

In any case its fair use and drives traffic to the original source.

Yes, you have already proven your ignorance on the topic.
That is why I unvoted your witness.
Perhaps you should look into the discussion from 5 years ago, why the steemcleaners were born.
I dislike them with a passion, but we kind of need them.

I just think it is incredibly unfair how some accounts get away with things, which would get other accounts into trouble.

I'm an experienced technology lawyer with 30 years experience in copyright law and its application online. I dealt with some of the earliest DCMA take down notices back in the late 1990s.

I also think it is unfair if small accounts are punished for what is legal and acceptable fair use use of photos.

I'm not "getting away with" anything.

I'm perfectly correct in my use of this image and so is anyone else doing the same thing of whatever account size.

I also agree we need some sort of spaminator like function, but am concerned about its current mode of operation.

This is why I have been working quietly to try to improve things.

I am not saying it is your fault, but: you are getting away with something others got into trouble for.

Yes, the Vouchers and Splintershards (SPS) are incredible … I can feed a family of 4 every day with my SPS airdrops.

It's sooo good to pay for something 'IRL' from crypto money!

I've had a huge hunger for Syrian food as well lately, never used to have Syrian restaurants in my city but they start to pop up here and there. Always grateful for new cuisines to try out, Ethiopian and Afghan are two other favourites of mine :-)

Great to see such a delicious use case for the Vouchers! :)))
Getting crypto and using in real life gives us great pleasure and while I am a HODLer I have my targets set to grab some profits and enjoy them.
