Splinterlands Vouchers - An Under The Radar Investment?

avatar

Speculation

If you play Splinterlands, it is very likely that you have a vested interest in seeing the value of the ecosystem increase as time goes on. Whether you have decided to purchase in game assets to play with or rent out, play2earn is an important factor in why we play the game.

With the launch of the Waka Spiritblade summoner, we saw just how much money can get pumped through the ecosystem when people recognize the strategic value of one of those assets. However, one thing that we saw with that launch is the importance of an asset that many people were previously overlooking: The Voucher

The summoner demanded quite the price tag and given the fact that it had to be partially purchased with vouchers, the value of the asset skyrocketed.

What Is The Voucher

So for quite a while now, people have been receiving Voucher tokens as an airdrop based on a daily snapshot of their staked SPS balance. It has been used in the past as a required cost for purchasing packs during the pre-sale stage and as mentioned used in launch of a special event.

At one point, vouchers were trading for less than a dollar, and now they are up around the $2 mark at a regular basis despite the circulating supply increasing every day.

If vouchers are theoretically going to be required to purchase in game-assets or get involved with the land phase of the game, they may jump up even more and appreciate in value. The thing to remember with vouchers is that we don't quite know what they will be used for even if we have a decent guess. This means that there is even more room to speculate on the value of the asset.

The only drawback I can see in investing directly in vouchers right now is that your voucher balance is not used in any airdrop calculations (i.e. the SPS drop and the voucher drop as it tracks SPS and not voucher holdings). With that being said, we don't know where the value of the voucher will head or if we will one day see a staking option for the vouchers, so it may be worth putting some thought into where you think the value lies for these tokens.

I think vouchers have value. It might even reach $5.00. And also SPS is up slightly !

I don't think it can hit $5. Chaos legion packs cost $4 and I don't think it will be more expensive compared to a pack.

Short term you are right, but one day those packs will sell out and then the price of the voucher could theoretically be more than $4. I just don't know what the exact distribution schedule is for vouchers because if the supply isn't capped it may dilute value over time

It could be worth more than $4 but I don't see VOUCHER being used as a payment option that often. So I think it will be included more as a wy to get bonus packs.

Agreed, though I also see it being used in special sales in the future

It certainly could be. Of all in the Splinterlands ecosystem, Vouchers do not get a lot of attention.

So you might be onto something.

It absolutely has to do with the fact it is the only in game asset that doesn't provide passive income. That's why it feels like the team will need to continuously provide utility for it so that it doesn't slip into obscurity

That is true, something I didnt consider. However, there is great utility in that token as it is evident that will be used for in-game purchases. The linking vouchers to purchases ensures there will be value.

So are there going to be new innovations brought out that people want? If so, and tied to vouchers, it will likely hold more value. We could see a massive pump in it.

I think I prefer to just stake SPS and get VOUCHERS and SPS for doing so. I can see it as a potential buying opportunity though.

That's how I've acquired my vouchers, but given the opportunity, I would personally pick up a few more at these price levels
