My Bet On Splinterlands

My Bet On.png

One thing I've been bullish on when it comes to cryptocurrency has always been...Actual use case!

It's what drove me to this blockchain and has kept me here for so many years. If I can use the stuff, I become a fan of the stuff.

So the same is true when it comes to NFT's.

And there is no better example of this in my opinion than Hive's very own - Splinterlands.

Let me make something abundantly clear from the get go...I absolutely suck at playing the game. It's really bad. In fact it just took me about 2 hours today to complete my daily quest, because well...I have no idea what I'm doing.

It did work out though...I ended up with this beauty as a reward :)

And this seems like the perfect opportunity to discuss my 'game plan' when it comes to @splinterlands

I've been in this game since the beginning, way back when it was still known as SteemMonsters. Heck I even have a promo shirt they were giving away from my trip to Steemfest 3 in Poland...

But again, I never really played the game. It's something I never got into as a kid, but I did...Collect cards.

A lot of them in fact and when I 'understood' the collectability of this game, I was hooked.

And with the upcoming SPS air drop and changes to Splinterlands, I've been in asset accumulation mode.

What's my plan?

Gold.

Foil.

Legendaries.

I've got a nice little collection now, and just bought these 2 today...

So why GFL's? Why am I betting big on Splinterlands?

I really think the SPS airdrop and new features that are coming to Splinterlands is going to be huge.

I've been attending a lot of their AMA's over the past few months and the excitement is at an all time high. The team behind this game gets it when it comes to putting use case to the NFTs and the scarcity of these cards is starting to show in the markets...

So my plan is...Stack the GFLs and get as much 'Power' as I can in the game...'

And once SPS is ready...Maybe start to make some profits from the game...I've already rented out a GFL I have, so the DEC is coming into my account every day :)

I truly believe this is just the tip of the ice berg when it comes to the potential we are about to see on Splinterlands.

For the collector in me...It's a no brainer.

And for the crypto enthusiast in me...So much use case!!

It's hard not to be bullish regarding the game when you see what's happened over the last 3/6 months. I've got a stack of UNTAMED packs that i'll be saving for a while yet, and a bunch of cards too that just about scrape me to the Champion league each season!

LOL That's my challenge over the next few months...Actually learn how to play the game!

If I get to Gold each season, it's a miracle. It's usually Bronze maybe Silver.

Wow nice pull. I don't think I pulled a robo dragon yet and those GFL are definitely expensive. I haven't really felt like investing in them yet. Are you trying to maintain a high league reward or just the casual playing?

I'm so much impressed on the big success of Splinterlands, and all the positive attentions they managed to bring to the Hive chain. And nice to see you onboard :)

Jon, if you have a playable collection and you'd rather remain a collector and not a gamer, I think @nealmcspadden still has something going on where you can delegate entire decks to certain accounts he controls and you make winnings 50:50 with people playing those accounts. Or something like that, I never looked into it 100%, because I'd rather play my account.

Hmm, SPS staking should give SPS rewards, right? If I understood that system of Neal's right, all rewards are split, including reward cards received and DEC. Cards are burned and DEC is split, if I remember correctly.

That's a pretty impressive power amount :-). These Gold foil legendaries sum up quite well. I think this will be very beneficial once SPS is starting to be paid out!

Nice! I like your strategy! I just wrote a post about Splinterlands this morning too! You should check it out, might give you another facet to your strategy. It is such a great game with so much potential. I think lands and everything else they have coming are going to blow things wide open.

It was my best investment ever! I went in with $120 and now my collection is worth over $4k. I invested a lot of time collecting DEC and completing daily quests but out of pocket, my investment was only $120.
The game-playing aspect is brilliant and there is so much room to grow and improve!

Say a person just doesn't have time to get into this game, but they're tired of reading about how well it's doing without being involved so they want to participate somehow. I...er...I mean, that person would like to possibly buy some of the tokens while they're cheap before the game literally explodes. Would a person want to buy SPT or DEC? Both? Neither? The new one? A person would appreciate a little guidance... (I sound like Jaqen H'ghar from Game of Thrones) :-)

I'm sure the NFTs and cards would be the best bet but a person is not ready to go there yet.

yeah i mean personally i don’t really play the game as much as others but the best way to learn it is to dive in.

i think dec is always a good bet as it’s got the use case and it’s the currency of the game.

but for me. it’s the cards. that’s the best way to get in without playing it everyday.

I am speculating on a SPS token price of $0.15 by the end of 2021. That would make the SPS airdrop for a single Untamed GFL with 50,000 collection power worth somewhere between $780 and $1100.

Splinterlands sure takes a lot of time, and it's quite addicive as well, but the upward potential and use case is great, thanks for sharing and stay awesome.

If I knew the untamed packs were going to stop being sold at one point, I'd have bought a lot more. Now I'm a sitting duck waiting on the next packs. Improving incrementally.
