TCGonk's Guide to Surviving the Land Tax Vote: A Game of Land, SPS, and Thrones
TCGonks here, your favorite gonker-wrangler and Splinterlands enthusiast. Today, I want to talk to you about something that's been on my mind for a while - the upcoming #splinterlands vote on charging land owners $10 per land they own. Now, before you all start throwing tomatoes at me, let me explain my stance on this issue.
Gonking into the Land Tax Debate
First of all, let's talk about land taxes. Now, I know what you're thinking - "Gonks, why are you bringing up something as boring as taxes on your blog? I come here for the witty banter and pop culture references, not a history lesson on property tax." Well, my dear gonkers, bear with me. You see, land taxes have been around since ancient times. In fact, the ancient Egyptians had a land tax system in place as early as 3000 BC. And you know what they say - if it ain't broke, don't fix it.
But let's take a trip down memory lane to more recent history. Remember the Game of Thrones series finale? The one where Daenerys Targaryen burns down King's Landing and becomes the Mad Queen? Well, one of the reasons she was able to do that was because she had the support of the smallfolk - the commoners who were fed up with the rich lords and ladies who owned all the land and didn't have to pay taxes. Sound familiar?
Now, I'm not saying we're going to have a Mad Queen situation here in Splinterlands, but it's important to remember that land taxes aren't just some random concept dreamed up by politicians - they have a long and storied history. But, unlike the game of thrones, you have the power to shape your own fate in Splinterlands by holding SPS. So, don't be like the Starks and neglect your responsibilities, be like the Lannisters and play the game to win.
Power to the Gonkers: Why SPS is a Must-Have
Now, I know some of you may be thinking, "TCGonks, what the heck is SPS and why should I care?" SPS stands for Splinterlands Governance Token. Essentially, it's a way for players to have a say in how the game is run - including decisions like land taxes. By holding SPS, you have the power to vote on important issues like this one. And let me tell you, my dear gonkers, it's never been more important to hold SPS than it is now. With this vote on land taxes coming up, it's crucial that we make sure our voices are heard.
But let's take a step back for a moment, and think about the bigger picture here. SPS is not just about land taxes, it's about the power of the people. It's about democracy in action. It's about being able to shape the future of the game. And let me tell you, my dear gonkers, that's something worth fighting for.
Now, I know what you're thinking - "TCGonks, this is all well and good, but what's in it for me?" Well, my dear gonkers, let me tell you. Holding SPS is like being part of an exclusive club. It's like being in the VIP section of a concert, where you're front and center and can see all the behind-the-scenes action. It's like being in the inner circle of a secret society, where you know all the secrets and have the power to make things happen. And let's be real here, who doesn't love a good secret society?
But enough about the philosophical side of things, let's talk about the real reason why you should hold SPS - the perks. You see, my dear gonkers, holding SPS not only gives you the power to vote on important issues, but it also comes with some pretty sweet perks. For example, SPS holders have access to exclusive tournaments and events, special card drops, and even discounts on in-game purchases. Now, I know what you're thinking - "TCGonks, this sounds too good to be true!" But trust me, my dear gonkers, it's not.
The Land Owners' Wake-up Call: Don't Be Like Ned Stark
Listen up, land owners. This vote on land taxes is not something to be taken lightly. It's time to wake up and realize that holding SPS is not just some optional extra, it's a necessity. Just like how Ned Stark learned the hard way that not playing the game of thrones can lead to dire consequences, ignoring the importance of SPS can lead to dire consequences for your land ownership. Don't be like Ned Stark, who got beheaded for not playing the game of thrones, and make the mistake of selling your SPS and being absent from the market. Be like the Lannisters, who always pay their debts and hold onto their SPS to protect themselves from any potential taxation.
