Great post! I hope all is well. The digital economy is all about hustle. Whether that is research, writing, playing, etc. It's so easy to sit back and point fingers, to call people rich or lucky. I'm far from rich, but I consider myself fortunate to be a middle-aged dude getting into the digital economy in the nascent stages. Splinterlands is the perfect example of a VC bet in this space. Among the dozens of duds, you occasionally find a high flyer. I wasn't aware of that Splintercards site. I sold quite a bit of my early SPS into CAKE and BUSD, so I could both play around some with DeFI and have some cash to pay uncle sam, and boy is he going to love me next year.

How are you doing Josh! Long time no talk.

Splinterlands is my one in a thousand bet (proverb) that worked.

I try not to sell crypto for fiat for the same reason. I don't have to at this point. I pay a lot of taxes and I am willing to pay more. I think about it that I am paying taxes because I am earning. There are lots of others who are not as fortunate as I am.

No reason to sale SPS at least till November.

You have a substatial deck if I remember correctly. A Max Beta-Untamed-Dice deck, if I remember correctly. That is basically unobtainium these days! Hope you participate in CL, I am sure it will be over-subscribed.

I'm done selling for now and staking everything. Yeah, I have all the non-gold cards maxed out for all those editions. All promos with the exception of a couple (level 4 shin lo vs level 3 and level 10 dragon whelp vs level 9 are kind of pointless. I'll probably buy at least 1k packs for CL, but I mostly rely on buying individual cards.

Yeah, I will buy 2K max, which is basically what I can get with 200K staked. After CL they will change the format so will see how the dynamics will work with the new set of cards. Then comes the land....

Where I promised my kids that they can farm strawberries!! LOL

Exciting times!
