Splinterlands Social Media Challenge!

Splinterlands will drain RC in the future:


Splinterlands may be the best online game within crypto as well as blockchain right now depending on every day energetic customers. Right now, the number of tend to be robots as well as the number of tend to be individuals might be discussed however exactly what can not be discussed is actually the number of dealings the overall game produces every day.

Hive happens to be the actual 4th biggest blockchain when it comes to dealings by having an eco-system the small fraction associated with how big many others such as POLISH as well as TRON.


The first thing that this did when the big wave of users hit in August was the team themselves were burning hive to create accounts at a ferocious rate but it's the long term effect of this growth that will have the biggest effect on the chain.

Resource credits will drive demand for Hive. Especially when RC delegations go live and Hive goes up in price as time goes by making it prohibitive for small users to buy enough to operate it will become cheaper to rent RC for operations than buying it to stake.

The knock on effect of having lots of accounts operating on the chain and creating transactions. Every account that plays games will need to either power up hive or rent RC from users that have RC to spare and willing to rent, markets depending.

I have a lot of cards built up over the years so the obvious play is to rent them out for additional income.

Originally I just set the prices myself and changed them a few times during the season but especially with the new splinterlands reward system that end of season pump is no longer there and it's more profitable to use a rental service to manage the cards and maximize the rentals.

I'm not sure how the rental bot works but it spends the time constantly changing prices and trying to get the best offer for your card at any given time. This involves a lot of Hive transactions to keep changing the price and make it work. So guess what.

This costs a lot of resource credits to keep the system working.
That means lots of Hive.

I have three rental accounts at the moment, two with a lot of cards and the third that I am slowly filling up with the chaos reward cards ever season.

  • Account one has 410HP and at 29% RC.
  • Account two has 200HP and is at 39% RC.
  • Account three is on 20HP and at 68% RC.

That's 63 hive power need just to keep these three accounts renting out my cards.

And as I keep buying up more and more stock from my rental income this number is only going to go up. It won't be long before I need 1000 HIVE just to keep my RC above the line.

And that's just me.
There are a lot more and a lot bigger accounts out there.

And that's just splinterlands.
There will be a lot more games and apps in three years.

And that's just with 2m accounts.
There will be a lot more than that in a few years time.

At the moment splinterlands is eating up resource credits form all sides but over time there will be more games and more users that multiply these transactions by a factor of ten.

All of these transactions need resource credits to operate.

Resource credits need hive power.

Hive is going to get very scarce as we see more and more apps building on Hive. Splinterlands is still in their building phase and if they get it right we could see them 10x their user base over the next few years and drive the Hive price to the moon.

Until then. It's a good time to start playing yourself.

Try for yourself.

If you haven't played the game before then now is the best time to join. Today is much better than tomorrow and a lot better than later.

Cards worth a few cents now will have a much higher value in the future as the print runs out. We have a strong community and seen this happen every time as it grows with the game.
