Splinterlands Stats | Mar 2023 | Transactions, Games, Players and Price
Splinterlands keeps evolving and developing. There were some recent tweaks again in the game, like fees for rent etc. Let’s see how this has affected the game. The last year was quite bad for the overall industry and it hit the project as well. This years is starting on with some growth but there are still a lot of challenges to be overcome. Land should be finally out in a few months.
Let’s take a look at the numbers!
The following topics will be covered:
- Number of transactions
- Number of games played
- Number of active daily players
- New accounts created by Splinterlands
- SPS price
The period that we will be looking in is 2022 - 2023.
The data has been queried from the Splinterlands API in combination with the data from the Hive blockchain.
Number Of Transactions
Transactions represent the overall activity in the game. Here is the chart.
The number of transactions has been quite stable up until recently. In all 2022 during the bear market, the transactions count was between 3M to 4M a day. But since recently we have seem a significant deep and the numbers are now between 2M and 3M.
I guess this is probably due to the new renting system.
Number Of Battles Played
Here is the chart of the daily numbers of games played for the period.
There has been a significant drop in the numbers of battles back in 2022. From 12M a day to around 4M a day. There has been an uptrend at the beginning of 2023 with the numbers going up to 6M, then a drop back. Also there is some big drop recently for a few days down to 2M and a fast recovery back to 4M where we are now.
It seems that the change in the rental system has impacted some things around here as well.
Number Of Renting Operations
The number of renting operations has been growing in the last year and at one point there was more renting operations then any other operation on Splinterlands.
Here is the chart.
We can see the grow and the big drop that happened recently. Just util February, the numbers for rentals kept growing and reached 1.2M operations per day. While this is less than the numbers for battles and other transactions, all the rental operations are recorded on the blockchain because of their financial nature. They are the most numerous operations that the game records on chain.
Since recently the game introduced a 1 DEC fee for each of these operations and they have now dropped to around 600k per day, that is a reduction in half.
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].
A very sharp drop in June 2022. From 400k to 150k DAUs. This is because of the changes in the reward system and eliminating bots. But since June 2022 the number of DAUs has steadily been growing reaching 250k DAUs in January. But we have another drop and overall volatility in the las weeks, most likely caused again by the change in the renting system.
New Accounts Created by Splinterlands
Here are the new Hive accounts created by Splinterlands on a monthly basis.
Splinterlands had an immense numbers of accounts created in the second half od 2021 with the top in September 2021 with 267k accounts created in a month.
In 2022 these numbers are far lower as things has settled down. The number of new accounts created per month kept going down in 2022 and we are now around 500 new Hive accounts per month.
At the end the price for the main token SPS.
SPS has been in a down trend for most of 2022. It seems that starting from January 2023 it has stabilized around the 3 cents and even had a small increase in the price, but it has dropped again recently. If you waited for some cheap SPS this is the cheapest it has been.
All the best
