I never considered while playing Splinterlands that one day I would open a golden legendary card in one of my packs, but it did happen and boy was I excited. It dropped from a beta pack and it was a Gold foil Lightning Dragon. I held it until today..
Normal market price for Gold Lightning Dragon was around 100$ these days, but today I see something strange. Golden Lightning Dragons are all bought and the cheapest one was 4499$. Holy cow I thought, I have one of those that I could probably sell for definitely a higher price than 100$, so I listed it for 3199$. Optimistic, but hey, some of these NFTs are sold for hundreds of thousands of dollars, this one actually has some ingame utility and it's rare so it definitely can be worth as much.
First thing I checked after I listed my dragon was is it registering on the marketplace. Hive transactions are fast so it should of listed right away, but it didn't. Immediately I thought something definitely went wrong. I refreshed for about 5 minutes and nothing, my Dragon was gone from my wallet, first I thought somebody bought it, damn that was fast I thought... Then I logged on peakmonsters to check the block explorer and to my absolute dumbfounded surprise..
..it seems I listed my Gold Foil Lightning Dragon for 3,199$ instead of 3199$. Mistake I don't ever make on my card trades, I sold and bought thousands of Splinterlands cards, not once had I made a mistake, and now it seems I made the largest mistake one can ever make, selling something for dirt cheap when it spiked in price. Or is it a foul play?
Why would anyone sane list
a card for 3,199$
when the lowest listed card
is priced 4449$!?
There was a one lucky user who had a bid order so low and it was @reazuliqbal. So if anyone can contact him and tell him it was a mistake on my part (or a foul play) to return me that card, I would greatly appreciate it.
