Newbie's First Month


What a crazy month!

From researching about NFTs on Youtube, I came across a guy who I am sure you are all aware of called CryptoStache. From one of his videos, he started talking about Play As You Earn games. Now, that got my attention!

I researched many Play as You Earn Games, but I was drawn to Splinterlands, probably due to the small amount of money needed to start, and I have to be honest, the lure of the money.

So, I went down the 'Splinterlands' rabbit hole and I'm still down there, and the chances are that I am unlikely to come out for a long time.

Why? Well, and this was surprising to me, it's not the chance to make a quick buck and move onto the next new up and coming game. It's all the elements that this game has, the game, the community, the rewards from loot chests, renting out cards, SPS Airdrops...and yes, you can make some money with 'Time and Attention', (quick plug for @DwayneCunningham, check out his YouTube channel!!!)

I have quickly learned that whatever you put into this game, you will get back....and more. I believe that this game is still only at the initial stages and with patience, this game has the opportunity to be life changing for whoever participates.

You just gotta think long term! Have a vision!

The Wascal Wabbit

P.S. Gotta plug 2 guys who have helped me and will help you on your journey...As mentioned previously, Dwayne Cunningham, he has awesome daily Splinterland content on Youtube and his help and guidance has inspired me a lot.

Also, Crypto Llama, he is also on YouTube, and has excellent concise advice, short vids, staight to the point. Especially good for newbies


Hello, @thewascalwabbits! This is @jcrodriguez from @OCD team.

We saw that you already posted your first post here in Hive! Congratulations and welcome!

I also play splinterlands. Welcome to the best platform and the best game on this blockchain. Maybe we will cross paths in a tournament or clan battle. It is your first post. It is important that you make an introduction to the community, is my suggestion.

As a sample of what an intro post is, you can refer to this intro post for reference:

Keeping Up With the Buzz - My Introduction to the Hive Community

There's no specific format on how you do your intro post, but there is some suggested content that we would love to see in your post. Information like who are you and where you're from, how did you discover Hive or who invited you, what types of content you want to see here and the types that you want to produce, and what are your expectations in this platform. There's no pressure on this. You can choose whatever information you would like to share.

You can explore the communities that you may like in this post: OCD Communities Incubation Program. There is a wide variety of topics, you are sure to find the right communities for your content.

You may encounter RC (Resource Credits) issues when trying to comment/post because you don't have enough Hive Power in your account yet. You can fix this with a one week temporary delegation through the Gift Giver Site. Another solution is for the person who recommended Hive to delegate some Hive Power to you.

If you are looking for tips and information as a Hive newbie, click here: newbie guide. They are easy to understand and useful for learning how the platform ecosystem works.

Please be aware that Hive is a bit different from other social media platforms since you are monetizing your blog, so it is important not to include content that you don't own without sources (and it shouldn't exceed 50% of the post). For more information, check this post - Why and How People Abuse and Plagiarise by hivewatchers.

If you have questions or concerns, you can hop into OCD's Discord server and we'll gladly answer your questions.

Lovesniper will follow you, we hope to see your presentation post soon!


Welcome to HIVE, Splinterlands and the rest of the greater ecosystem.
