Splinterlands Continues to Fly

avatar

One month ago, we put out a blog post (Splinterlands: An Explosive Success Story!) detailing the rapid growth that had happened in July. We were pretty excited, because it debuted some exciting recent happenings:

  • New user sign-ups had 10x'ed in 30 days
  • Monthly Spellbook purchases had done the same
  • Land prices were also in that range
  • The Market Cap of Splinterlands cards was over $110,000,000 a 5x plus jump in one month
  • The new card rental market was proving successful, earning players a combined $5,000 daily
  • Splinterlands had successfully launched SPS, the new governance token

Now, as we are able to look back at what August has brought us, even these invigorating numbers began to pale.

Total accounts have 2.5x'ed this month

At the beginning of August, we were celebrating that the total registered accounts had doubled in a month and a half, reaching 200,000 registered users. As we head into September, the total accounts have already grown to over 500,000, a jump of over 250%.


(total accounts in 2021)

New Daily Sign-ups have 3x'ed this month

Last month we were celebrating the 10x growth of our daily sign-ups, which grew from around 500 as July began to 5,000 as we headed into August. Now, as we begin September, we are seeing around 15,000 new sign-ups every day. This represents as 3x increase in the last month, and is 30x jump in the last two months.


(Daily Sign-ups)

Spellbook purchases have 4x'ed this month

At the end of July, we were celebrating reaching 50,000 total Spellbooks purchased, half of which were bought in the last 45 days before August. Then, over 150,000 spellbooks were purchased in August alone, a 400% increase in a single month. For some perspective, this means that the game now gains the same number of Spellbook owners in a week that it saw in the entire first two years of Splinterlands existence.


(Total Spellbooks Owned)

Daily Spellbook purchases increasing every month

In June, the average number of daily Spellbooks purchased was just over 50.
In July, the average number of daily Spellbooks purchased was more than 500.
In August, the average number of daily Spellbooks purchased exceeded 5,000.
More than 75% of all Spellbooks that have ever been purchased were bought last month.

Not reflected in the graph above, which only depicts numbers through the end of August, is the fact that the first day of September saw more than 10,000 Spellbooks purchased, a new exciting record. We look forward to seeing how much happens this month.

Daily Market Volume has doubled, tripled and quadrupled this Summer

Another fun metric to look at is the Daily Market Volume. This number represents how much total volume was done on the secondary market every day.
In May, like many months before it, around $8,000 worth of transactions occurred on average daily.
In June, this number nearly doubled, and around $15,000 was exchanged on any given day.
In July, this average increased more than 3 times to about $50,000 daily.
In August, then, the average quadrupled to around $200,000 every day, the last days of the month seeing $300,000+ in transaction volume.

The first day of September alone, not pictured on this graph, saw more Market volume than any entire month prior to this Summer.

The total monthly market volume numbers show this growth even more drastically than the averages, in addition to just being a really fun graph to look at:

The higher the market volume, the more that Splinterlands asset owners are selling the cards that they want to sell and buying the ones that they want to own. And that's good news for everybody.

Splinterlands Market Cap has nearly doubled in the last month

The Splinterlands Market cap is a number used to estimate the value of all Splinterlands cards held by all owners across the game. To arrive at this number, each card's lowest listed sale price (on the secondary market) is multiplied by all of the DEC power that exists for that card. This gives a rough estimate of what it would cost to purchase all Splinterlands cards (although of course, not all cards are for sale, and not all sales are listed at that lowest price). The measurement it not exact, but does a good job of showing the relative value of Splinterlands assets, especially over time.

Last month we were celebrating a market cap of over $110,000,000, the result of an enormous vertical jump in asset value over the previous month, as demonstrated in this graph from the end of July:

Now, one month later, Splinterlands market cap is over $200,000,000, thanks to another steep vertical climb after a very short-lived plateau:

This increase in Market cap is reflected in the value of assets held individually, meaning that it is very likely that individual Splinterlands asset owners have seen their own cards dramatically increase in value over the last couple of months, even if they aren't looking to sell.

Rental Market daily revenue has 6x'ed in the last month

This upsurge of value, of course, means an upsurge of prices, too. With so many new Splinterlands players entering the game now, while there are no new packs for sale, and with the drastic increase in the prices of the only available cards on the secondary market, it can be difficult for new players to purchase cards with which to play.

So it's a good thing that the Splinterlands card rental market is here to fill that gap!

Last month saw about 135,000 active rentals at any given time, and card owners were making a combined $5,000 a day renting out cards. As we head into September, despite card rental prices remaining affordable, the combined daily rental profits is upwards of $30,000 from over 350,000 active rentals. This means that, without any additional growth, Splinterlands cardholders are making over $10 million annually for renting out their cards.


With player growth currently at 5% every day, we are doubling in size as a community every three weeks. At this rate, we are set to hit 1,000,000 active users in December of this year.

Thank you to our incredible community of loyal players and collectors! None of this success would be possible without you behind us, and your support means the world to us.

There's no way I could have imagined 3 years ago that these little cards would be so ridiculously valuable. My intro was the Kickstarter campaign where I threw down a $100 really just to help out and support the project... but now I wish I had done that amazing $200 level.

Keep it up, Splinterlands team but everyone who is playing! We will experience growing pains but that's what happens when people discover one of the best-kept secrets in online gaming!

I'm sure you now have the server company sales director on speed dial, anticipating the next upgrade to the server cluster you're using!

Yeah, and the hits just keep on coming. Ape Mining Club is cool and I got a 115 alpha packs for dcrops last night after seeing it has an appeal, too.

Lol, I wasn't even wanting to play it, just hold some packs for down the road but I screwed up and opened one to check it out and now I have a fucking virtual farm.

I accidentally became the owner of a farm. What kind of sorcery is this?!

Anyway, I still have 95 packs because I think I'm finally wising up and just buying the legendary stuff while it's cheap and saving the lotto for the latecomers. 😁

It's good that you guys have exponential amount of growth, HEHE! i am even one of them, but has your actual card distribution to players had also increased 3-4 times also. Getting one or two card in a season while the drop rate is supposed to be 33% doesn't really look nice.

I wish I found this game sooner. But I guess overall I'm still kinda early. Especially seeing how much the game continues to grow. But do you have a way of knowing which accounts are from new users vs multiple account users?

No, not really. Anyone can create an account and buy the spell book so there isn't a way to tell outside of looking at their transactions and guessing.

There's nothing wrong with running bots. It's a part of the game that's needed to get battles. We have a lot more players now so it won't be as much of an issue but the bot accounts were needed before and the owner of a bot has a lot of upfront costs and continued costs so I'm not opposed to them getting rewards for their service.

So all of this being said, you guys need to hurry up and start releasings some more cards/nft's to accomodate the massive growth. With a limited supply already it is putting a cramp on the little guys out there while the rich get richer. Yeah it's great for second hand card values and those renting but it isn't very appealing cost wise for the newcomers trying to fight there way to higher leagues and once the "having to maintain" rule goes into play regarding seasonal rewards it will be even harder since that the power level will need to be maintained by renters to collect rewards for levels achieved. Sorry to throw a wet blanket on a success story, I hope this thing goes to the moon, but just try to remember to take as many as possible with you when you leave orbit!

You have to remember, we've never seen this type of exponential growth. It's a learning experience and one that changes what they are doing all the time. The Splinterlands has been very good at producing things in appropriate quantities to have balance in the game. Such exponential growth completely throws off their calculations when they were originally designing the new cards. Be patient! We all are in the same boat, even if you've played the game for years like I and others or you are a new user. It's better to have thought it out sufficiently than run into supply issues very soon after you release something.

The stats is very impressive and well done!!

My wife is one of the new players, luckily she had an old dormant Steem account with a few Steem in that she could transfer, just to get a bit of DEC to participate in the airdrop!!

I am a bit worried about the new players as it is very difficult to progress in the game if you don't invest money. To receive only one chest with a few DEC will be discouraging in the long run, I think we need to look at ways to keep these new players happy, so that they don't leave again!! Perhaps we need to ensure that they at least get a card or two in a week, as quest reward.

For me, I love the rental market and it gives a nice additional DEC supply. #PeakMonsters had a nice feature that showed if your rent was below or above the prevailing market prices, which is currently not available. This feature helped a lot to keep your rental prices inline with the market, it would be great if they could fix this again.

The sky is the limit for #Splinterlands!!

That's a tricky slope to be on. Who's to say someone doesn't just create a bunch of "new" accounts to get the guaranteed cards with a chance of getting something good like a legendary? I know what you mean for sure but it's hard to figure out how to do that properly. Once the new packs get released some of the prices will come down and cards might become more reasonable to buy. Plus the new cards will usually be very cheap.

Wow, I am in the July batch and continue to love this game. It is highly competitive and addictive and unlike any other crypto-game I came across, it focuses on the player and the community and not on the pockets of its developers and that is the truly magnificant part of this game.
I am very thankful to have found this game, even at this not so early stage. I believe, we have a long way to go, to reach the peak and even after that, I can't see a decline in value.

I'm a new player to Splinterlands, and I'm really enjoying the game. Most of the other NFT games are glorified loot boxes with a marginal actual game, and a lot of focus on buying tokens for future rewards. Splinterlands is a great game at the core and the play to earn / pay to be top is something I'm ok with.

One comment - it's fairly expensive to buy cards right now and I do like to collect in games. The new expansion can't come quickly enough. Hopefully there's a mechanism with the token to pre-buy packs where us new players can still be eligible with the modest SPS we have staked at this point.

Been fun so far, congrats on the success!

We've never experienced this type of price action for cards or DEC. bear with us all as we enjoy it but also learn the nuances of it! It’s a long, great road but usually with new things being released, the prices of other things come down. I don’t know if the prices of the historical stuff will come down by much considering they are finished printing but it might. Keep playing, stacking cards and enjoying the ride!

What's really crazy is that those numbers seem like a lot but still dwarf in comparision to games like Axie and a number of others on wax. (That's not talking negativly about Splinterlands at all) Instead what it means is there is still MASSIVE potential for growth. When new decks release we should see a major bump in people playing more and getting active onthe markets. Then we get some new dice pack thingy and after that we get land! HUGE potential still for all.

I've always seen potential in cardgames since I was a kid.
I played the most varied types.
And always the values ​​of physical cards increased every day.
Even more so if a certain card helped to win a tournament.
I started with Splinterlands recently.
And I admit, from now on this game will be even more valued.
I'm having a lot of fun playing, even though I haven't started from scratch.
