Steve, your calculations of the node profitability were only based on the SPS valuation, but there are also 20,000 vouchers that would be shared between all the validators per day. That would significantly alter profitability calculations especially if the number of actual nodes running will be low.

Very nice and detailed summary. Good to see you back and good to see you well!

Count me in 😊 @blitzzzz

Good clear summary thanks again mate, recover well

Best Splinterland Summary Content!

Glad you're feeling better. Great TH recap as usual!

A great recap as usual, Steve! 😉

Great content! Especially with the time stamps, I feel everyone who's making 15-20+ videos on multiple topics should include these

Great to see you back Steve! IGN: firelore

Hey man! Count me in!


Nice to have you back

I think the Splinterlands team design the game economic to be sustainable for many years to come when they released the prices of validator license in tranches.

They are slowly building up the momentum instead of going for pent-up demand.


Love your videos! I plan on getting a node in the pre-sale if I can but getting funds into the game is hard in the US. Can you make a walk through video on how you'd go about it to minimize your losses and balance speed with efficiency? The fastest way I've found is buying packs with credits from a credit card purchase then selling those on hive. A little slower and profitable is to card flip with credits but that takes a long time and is subject to swings in the card market.

Thanks for the recap.
About the new rewards and the need to lvl up cards, I always struggle between leveling cards and getting more diverse cards to cover more rulesets. There's a clash between format. In tournament, you wanna have maxed out cards. But in rank, you can usualy rank up by always playing your main/best deck. As SL seems to shift its focus to tournament lately, that'll have an impact on the market. I'm, currently working on maxing out silver lvl CL cards before working on my gold/diamond ladder team for instance

Thanks for the recap. Keep up with them and have a good covid recovery!!1

Thanks for the giveaway

thanks for another great recap.

With the new reward changes comming up I keep eye-balling 1 BCX of a Living Lava and Unicorn Mustang for my deck as I use them often but perhaps I'll get by with my leveled up CL tanks (level 2 summoners) for those splinters.

hoping for a bright future for this game!

@kaylerfaye here count me in. Right now I'm buying 1000 SPS. Who knows how these nodes will affect the SPS price but if its price goes to at least $2, that would mean I will have $2000 by that time 🤑.

First steps here in PeaKD. Continue you great work for the Splinterlands Community, love your content

Great recap thank you
