Splinterlands Stats | August 2021 | Games, Players, DEC and Price
Splinterlands has literally exploded in the last month! All numbers are up.
Let’s take a look at the latest data.
One of the main things that is driving the Splinterlands exploding growth seems to be the SPS token, but also the overall trend in NFT gaming. Building for a three years also helps 😊.
The following topics will be covered:
- Number of games played
- Number of active daily players
- Number of active monthly players
- New accounts created by Splinterlands
- DEC supply
- DEC price
- SPS price
Number Of Battles Played
Here is the chart of the daily numbers of games played for the period.
The growth in the numbers of battles is so big the numbers before a month are almost not visible! Till recently there was around 100k to 150k battles per day and in the last days there is more than 4M battles per day. This is x30 for the battles.
Note on the numbers: Until August 11, 2021, the numbers for the battles are from the data on the blockchain. After that Splinterlands have made changes on the way how they store data, and the numbers are from the Splinterlands API. There is some data for battles but the numbers are much lower than the ones from the API that are presented above.
Number Of Active Players
This is one of the most important metrics for every dApp, how many active users have there are. Here is a data for daily active users [DAU] and monthly active users as well [MAU]
A similar chart as for the numbers of battles. Up until July 2021, Splinterlands had somewhere between 5k to 7k daily players. Then these numbers exploded in July and continued to grow in August as well, reaching 170k daily active players in the last days. At this rate we might see one million DAUs for Splinterlands soon.
The note for the data from the battles applies here as well. In the last month the numbers for DAUs are from the Splinterlands API. The data on the blockchain is lower.
Probably some players are using older version and their transactions are recorded on the blockchain while the new ones are not, or maybe something else how is SL managing the transactions now.
New Hive Accounts Created by Splinterlands
Here are the new Hive accounts created by Splinterlands.
In the past Splinterlands was creating somewhere between 500 to 1500 new accounts per month. In July there was 20k new Hive accounts created, and in August a 163k accounts created. I’m amazed by the new numbers of accounts created in one month. It is probably the highest number of accounts created per month since the beginning of the blockchain.
Another interesting metric is DEC supply. DEC is burned when buying potions, orbs, skins and guilds upgrade. The DICE edition is exclusive bought with DEC as well and it is burnt. That edition was sold out recently. Few other things as well.
On the other side the higher the price of DEC is the more is printed.
Here is the chart for the all time DEC burned vs created.
Note the chart is on a logarithmic scale.
We can notice that in July and August there was an increase in the amount of DEC burned (yellowish line) but then a drop. After August 18th, there is much less DEC burned, and for the first time in years there is days with zero DEC burned. This is most likely because the DICE edition is sold out and that was the main sink for DEC.
On the other side the price od DEC remained high and the printing rate of DEC is at all time high.
Here how this has affected the supply of DEC in 2021.
At the start of the year DEC had around 630M in supply and it remained at those levels until July. Then the supply started decreasing (aggressive DICE buying) and in the last few weeks the supply spiked from 475M to 846M now. Around 15M DEC is being added per day.
What about the DEC price?
Here is the chart on all time DEC price in dollars [$].
DEC is way above its peg now trading in the range of 0.007 and 0.008.
A zoom in chart, for better visibility.
We can see here as well that there is an overall increase in the DEC price in the last period. At this point the price of DEC is dependent on the price of SPS, as DEC holders are eligible for the airdrop. But also from the DEC supply.
Here is the chart for the SPS price.
SPS has been around for more then a month now. At start the price spiked to almost 1$ and then it stabilized itself to around 0.4$.
All the best
