Splinterlands Strategies: The Crypto-Grinding Machine

image.png

A strange title you may think? Yesterday marked the pre-release airdrop of Riftwatchers, something that many of us have been waiting for.

The cock-up of this pre-sale delayed the drop but it was worth the wait. A couple of people I know personally missed this one because they didn't buy within the one-minute circus show.


image.png
...'pre-sales of Splinterlands expansion are hot. You need to be quick or get nothing'...

If I managed it using the hotel WI-FI in Amsterdam (HiveFest) then surely they could at home?

I spent hard on Riftwatchers buying 2,000 packs. The cost was a cool $10,000 plus the price of vouchers.

Yesterday I was dropped $2,000 worth of NFTs, I got lucky and was awarded 4 Oshuur Constantia's as well as 46 regular ones.

image.png

The point of this is not to boast of my good fortune, but to say that $10,000 didn't come from the fiat world but was a by-product of my own 'crypto-grinding machine'.

In fact I haven't moved a penny from the 'real' world into crypto since October 2019. There has been no need, as I make my assets work hard and produce more daily.

Everyone can own one of these grinding machines, you just need to think smart. Start with the entry-level version and work up. I don't have the deluxe-all-buttoned version yet but I am working on it.


image.png
...'I hit Claim often, 22 SPS @ 0.057 is $1.25. While I have been putting this article together that's what accumulated. You need to own it to generate more'...

'The Crypto-Grinding Machine' is not a physical device but an extension of your own brain. Use it, work those assets and they will increase significantly.

Much of mine was accumulated during the one-year Splinterlands SPS airdrop. It could be stated this was the main reason for the success of the company in August 2021 and the huge increase in players.

As an early investor, I already had a decent stash of cards, and powered down a chunk of HIVE, moved it to SWAP.HIVE, traded half for DEC and used the liquidity pools to gain even more daily SPS. Thank you @azircon for pushing me to do this.


image.png
...'I often hit this Claim as well as the other one. That's another 42c.. thank you!'...

Those pools still exist, are well funded with assets, and still, yield a healthy return. If you are not taking advantage of them, you should.

When Riftwatchers was released I used part of my SPS stash to pay for all of them. There was no cost to me at least from the 'real world'. The airdrop yield paid for it all.

image.png

The Oshuur Constantia's have been levelled up and added to the rental market. More passive income. The Gold ones, I am undecided about as yet.

L2 Gold Oshuur Constantia’s rent for around 16 DEC which is quite laughable for a $200+ card. Selling them to gain funds for older more desirable cards is an option.


image.png
...'Byzantine Kitty continues to rise. I am expecting $500 soon per BCX. There's barely any for sale'...

You can never have enough Llama, Yodin, or Kittys.

RedLine.png

Here are some of the methods I use to gain passive income:

  • Splinterlands Rentals DEC (HIVE) - passive via renting service
  • Splinterlands SPS & VOUCHER daily drop - passive, 25% return
  • Splinterlands Landholders SPS daily Airdrop, passive (starts 18/10/2022)
  • TribelDex Liquidity DeFI pools - passive, 65-75% return

If you use HIVE as an authoring or curation platform then you also have these available to you:

  • Authoring (HP/HBD) - not passive, requires you to write (Proof Of Brain), rewards vary
  • HIVE.engine tokens - passive, small rewards, these are what those strange tags are for.
  • HP (HIVE) - semi-passive, voting generates around 8-9% return (curation rewards)
  • HBD (HIVE) - passive, 20% return

RedLine.png

You may say that I have a significant stake, and you would be right. I bought all that with fiat money, not knowing whether it was the correct time or not during 2018 and 2019.

You have to realise this is not get-rich-quick. Assets produce more assets but need to exist for that to happen.

image.png

Land will be the next addition. I have PLOT that is currently doing nothing. I am also preparing my summoners and monsters for what will be coming soon.

If you have PLOT, then I would encourage you to do the same. I see a sharp rise in the value of summoners especially. There won’t be enough of them to work all this land.

I am seeing Land as another source of semi-passive income. In the future, if you don't use secondary resources when playing Splinterlands, you are going to lose lots of matches.


image.png
...'General Sloan is especially cheap. If you have several PLOT, chances are one will be a Life Land. You are going to need the General to control that land, and whip the slaves into action'...

If you can’t see that, then buy some glasses. It will happen.

Everyone can own a personal ‘Crypto-Grinding Machine’ starting with the entry-level model. Think smart, start the button and crank it into action.

Couldnt agree more with you on this. If you see how much this is generating on the daily. With sps giving more sps, with cards giving dec.

Of my behalf with the current prices I would be generating say $2000 per year while my total collection is worth 6.5K. Aint that crazy how much already this is doing? Printing!

And then you arent even playing the game..imagine that!

Stunning, one thing I've come to realize is that you just need that massive money, that one time push to invest at the beginning and let your passive Income generate other possibilities for you to earn, just like you paying for those riftwatchers with the SPS you've gotten over the year. Like you've said, It's not a get rich quick scheme, I imagine those massive returns and how much it's like to be when the whole market decides to boom. Congratulations once again, you're building something formidable.

I was quite shocked when I tallied up the value of yesterday's airdrop. The cheapest regular is now $28. That's $1288 if you are unlucky and don't get any GF's. I was guaranteed two due to the amount.

image.png

Then we have another 5 airdrops or so later on. You can't say this company doesn't look after their investors.

The company does look after it's investors because they realize it's the best way to keep the value in. They might slack in so many areas, but this is one area they do not.

Land is going to be interesting. It could well be a sim-management game with 'magic money'.

I think I have said before that I think it is a shame if it is just about money. It is supposed to be a game after all. To get decent returns you need to invest a lot and some people cannot do that. That said, I am just renting and not playing these days, but then I did many thousands of battles. I just decided it was taking up too much time and I had other things I wanted to be doing. I am not into all the options and am not sure I had even seen the pools. I may add something to those.

I do play a little using a silver account. Cracking those chests can be a buzz, and if you 100% rent it won't happen. I am after potions more than anything.., as I won't crack packs unless I have them.

The lower leagues are still bot infested and it's hard to win unless you have OP'd cards. Higher up.. that's where the skill comes in.

3 months is better than none. They keep feeding us airdrops, it's all SPS now.

certainly! I think thanks to the airdrop I accumulated about 500 SPS, better than nothing!
In fact it prompted me to buy more when I could ;)

A quarter mill in liquidity for a game market is pretty impressive...especially for how small the community is.

LoL this sounded sarcastic and hilarious at same time but you are saying the truth.

Splinterlands is a lot too digest the are high in staking which is not your fault, Risk is one thing we humans need to take to make it in life if possible.

You have to realise this is not get-rich-quick. Assets produce more assets but need to exist for that to happen.

Life is a process you don't expect results immediately in in whatever you do, It is definitely not a get rich thing it's an evolved thing.

To be honest i really want to know much about this splinterlands you are blunt enough but nothing is getting into my thick skull.

I did not participate in the Riftwatchers presale because I had to choose not having a lot of funds to invest and invested in Tower Defense and Genesis League Goals.
Ochur constantia is a really good card congratulations on your airdrop!

Your post is a clear example of how Hive and Splinterlands offer so many opportunities to those who want to build a Crypto-Grinding Machine and mine even if it is much smaller than yours I keep upgrading it ;)
Thanks for these interesting and motivating posts!

I've started using the Dec and voucher pools recently. The APRs are too good to pass up. It's small beer today,but as you've said, it ain't a get rich quick thing.

The name fits perfectly for me! You can grow you Splinterlands account, your HP, AND have fun doing it. I did with Chaos Legion what you've done with riftwatchers, but was on longer vacations and missed the presale; will definitely get my hands in some packs thow, just waiting to get some more juicy SPS without having to touch on my current stake. Cheers! !BEER

This clearly shows how much potential and how much in pipeline as splinterlands as corporate organization. The expansion of game and co-relation of SPS token with other game will bring expansion in hive blockchain.

Wow this is really an inspiring post! Hope to get there one day as well to earn those passive income and make those in-game assets work even harder for me. Got in too late to take advantage of the SPS airdrops before they removed it :( Thanks for sharing the tips on doing so and will definitely look into the Liquidity Pool!
