I wanted to write this post today because I had learned fairly recently that not everyone is aware of the resources available to them on the secondary market. You might play a hive blockchain game, such as splinterlands, dcity, cryptobrewmaster, etc; and each of these games has their own native token that you can earn, spend, and interact with various parameters of the game. What I found that some folks don't know, especially those newer to Dapp games and such, is that you can often aquire these in game tokens for cheaper than you can from the game itself or via a hive equivalent purchase by buying these in game tokens on the secondary market.
Thats right, for example, if you were to buy dec (used in splinterlands, pictured below) by swapping on uniswap or sometimes on hive engine, you could actually obtain Untamed card packs for cheaper than the ~ $2.00 USD that they would normally cost you otherwise. Another example for the game dcity (pictured above) which has the native SIM token that your city earns, if you were to buy SIM on the secondary market and use that to buy/mint cards instead of using hive to do so, you could save significantly as SIM is currently trading at a significant discount.
Why would I do this?
More bang for your buck of course! With the same amount of money in crypto, you can obtain significantly more blockchain assets. Why buy tokens at a premium out of convenience when a couple of extra steps could net you 110-150% more for the same amount of money? I sure wouldn't! You might be asking, where are these secondary markets located? Well don't fret, here are some resources below that can help you navigate these secondary markets and start getting more for your money:
