Splinterlands: Passive Rental Income Update #14

The Splinterlands rental market is one of the best ways to put your assets to work and give you passive income. It's been around 2 weeks since my 13th update on my rental strategy.

The rental markets look fine but some of the high APRs are not there anymore. As I didn't have much time, I rearranged my prices today so that they fit the current rates. Some of my rentals before were way too high compared to the current prices so it should help my cards get rented out more often. It's a bit unfortunate but some of the untamed cards that I had before still didn't have good DEC per CP so I rented out what I could for some extra income.

Rental Progress

My original post, where I announced my strategy, shows my general motivation for choosing this strategy. Like I said earlier, there are good and bad cards out for renting out right now.

Purchases

As always, I used Monster Market to purchase my cards for the cashback. I used up the DEC I earned from ranked battles, rental income, and rewards chest. As I stated last time, the DEC has increased a lot because of the chest rewards from the focus quest and the season-ranked rewards. The rental income is also looking quite nice as it tends to bring in over 1k DEC a day.

My choice of cards this week is a level 2 untamed summoner. I really wanted to buy some level 1 untamed summoners but prices have shot through the roof so I avoided it. So I opted for a level 2 summoner which doesn't give that much of a boost in DEC. However, it does have a decent APR and I think having more summoners is never a bad choice. Pyre was the one with the best value per BCX and I skipped Drake because the rental prices for that are bad.

Income

My income and all rental price management are done through Peak Monsters because of the tools it provides me. I do plan to update prices closer to the end of the season. It looks like prices are changing daily so I may have to go back and change prices every now and then to make sure they are rented out.

DEC prices have gone down even further and I guess it's just the effects of the bear market. My income from rentals did decrease slightly from fixing prices. However, a maximum of 2k DEC per day is always a good thing. I am liking the new rewards system on the rental market but I just don't have enough untamed cards to make the most of the DEC per CP on the market.

Conclusion

Comparing the rental market to my last update, not much has changed. Some prices have stabilized and it's not as unreasonable. At least with the current prices, I think anyone can build a fairly decent deck if they are avoiding untamed. The new rewards system has come with its own ups and downs so I wonder what will happen when the changes about modern vs. wild will change in the rewards system.

What are your plans regarding rentals in Splinterlands?

It is pretty creepy the way everyone is ignoring what is happening to me and still going to Hivefest. Lay the dirty snatches out why dont ya. Fake it all you want creeps, its so obvious the blind eye you are turning. @fyrstikken told me what V2K and RNM was before they turned it on for me. Around that time he introduced me to @roelandp . I still have the emails between myself and @roelandp . This chain is centralized by design and @fyrstikken helped set it all up to fuck everyone, one by one, slowly into my situation. This is no joke you dumb mother fuckers, they shock you to your thoughts..... Hello????? It is in store for everyone you fools and your helping. Voices pulsed in your head and shocks to your thoughts??? Ignore me and help fuck innocent people for life? @roelandp and other top witnesses I know are involved with @fyrstikken.. Wait until people find out you conspired to enslave them with this shit. I am not crazy and you know it. they are doing this shit to me and told me what it mother fucking was BEFORE THEY TURNED IT ON! Your acting like naive children or maybe you are just part of the problem? You look like sociopaths. Everyone should unplug from HIVE until they are caught, .your. celebrating and ignoring my obvious, you look like fools. You know who is doing it....they are trying to kill me with it. The Havana Syndrome is real too you slave trading V2K, RNM enabling fuckers. Arrogantly play ignorant you Creeps, your setting the table for trafficking and total enslavement. I did not know I was circumvented until a year after I was..People here will be nice until it?s too late. There is no way to stop it once they have you. Grow the fuck up, this is not aliens, gods, celebrities or a medicate-able mental concern. It is 100% electronic and beast as fuck. You do not want this shit. https://ecency.com/fyrstikken/@fairandbalanced/i-am-the-only-motherfucker-on-the-internet-pointing-to-a-direct-source-for-voice-to-skull-electronic-terrorism ..... https://ecency.com/gangstalking/@acousticpulses/electronic-terrorism-and-gaslighting--if-you-downvote-this-post-you-are-part-of-the-problem

Mate, it's so awesome to see you making so much DEC from the game. At over 1000 a day in passive income, I can only imagine how helpful that is for building a stack!

Yea. I love the rental system and how it helps to build a stack. Right now, the summoners look like great choices because they are always in demand.

I'm doing the opposite at the moment, I only just purchased the card power to play in GOLD, and I'm thinking of buying the next 50,000 CP to move up to GOLD 2.

Here's my thinking: it doesn't matter what I buy, it's just card power. Then, rent whatever the daily focus is. Think this is my strategy going forward, and you're right - it's the summoners which will cost the big rental fees at those lofty levels.

Yea. It does depend and if you need CP, then that is fine. I just like summoners because they will always be useful and there are fewer of them available.

I don't understand how the current report income works, infact it's one of the biggest confusion of mine till date. I think 1k DEC per day is great. I think everything is overly affected by the huge dip we're facing.

It is highly dependent on the cards you have. Most of the reward cards kind of suck when you check their rental price. However, untamed cards are quite good and I am able to take advantage of people who just want level 1 cards.

I need to review my rental prices also, as my rates are probably to high. Thanks for the reminder and good luck renting your newly priced monsters.

It's always good to review them every once in a while. I tend to make a post every 2 weeks so that tends to be the frequency I check. However, you can probably earn more if you check more often.

Yes, it’s tough to do it frequently. I think if this software checks daily, it could be the advantage people seek.

I think it depends. If you skip the untamed cards, I think it should be relatively cheap to get a chaos legion deck for use. The untamed prices are just too crazy.

Silly question, but what does untamed mean?

It's just the type of cards. The current set of cards for sale is chaos legion and the previous one was untamed.

Thanks! Understand. I've picked up some low hanging Chaos Legion cards. I will keep trying to find some good combinations.

nice strategy, I see most of your cards rented out are untamed edition. That's definitely a wise choice to rent them out since the demand of untamed starter cards is huge for bots. Wish I have had join this game before untamed. Unluckily, I join this game and community in Nov last year which is after the untamed and I just missed a golden chance. Cheers mate~

Yea. I joined in during untamed and spent about $1,000 to get around 500 packs. I did open some of them and it's proving to be a decent return. It's possible Chaos Legion might do something similar in a year or two when things are sold out.

Keep in mind that the overall supply of CL packs are 10x more than the untamed one. The assumption behind is that the player base will increase in the future like what we did in the past. Then the overall demand will be increased and therefore the value of the cards.

Yes, that is true but it can still go up in price when it is out of print. I just don't think prices will stay low forever.

With the power you have, it makes sense if you choose to rent out the monsters you have, I'm sure you're also battling to get rewards and replay them in renting.

If I had more power and monsters, I would definitely do the same.

I am only renting out the duplicates and I keep the rest for my own use. Currently, I am happy enough with 200k CP for a maximum rank of Gold I for the season and any extra CP I get is for rentals.

I guess , I have too much early advantage, I almost have 40 Level 1 creeping Ooze and might be nice amount of furious chickens and lot of Generation 1 rewards cards that really boost my rental income.

May be Pyre is going high in rentals but I will not recommend buying Pyre because I feel it's utility is less then Tarsa and Tarsa is cheap too.

I guess , best is not to focus on today rental but buying some great card that will really appreciate with time.

Wow, that is a lot of first-generation cards. I choose Pyre because it was like $3 per BCX compared to the $5 per BCX on other summoners. It just seemed like the best deal and I think having more speed is always nice.
