in LeoFinance7 months ago


Are you new to Splinterlands and searching for some advice, then you found the correct series! In this Beginner’s Guide Series, we are discussing things that new players of Splinterlands should know or try to learn. In this specific episode we will talk about the multiple Income Sources that Splinterlands is providing. Furthermore, we will take a look at the recent extensions and put everything into perspective with the current crypto situation. With that being said, if this article motivated you to start playing this amazing game, then feel free to join the fun over the following link:

Multiple Income Sources

First and foremost, let’s talk about the benefits of playing Splinterlands. Well, not only is this game a lot of fun it also comes with potentially multiple income sources. Let’s discuss the fun part first. When you first starting out this game, I would not focus on the Play 2 Earn aspect of this game. In the beginning I would focus on the actual gameplay. In the end, this is still a game that people are enjoying playing. If this would not be the case, it would not have so much popularity. I would recommend to get to know the best strategies and get used to 2-3 Splinters that you enjoy playing. This way you are able o focus your energy on the development of your deck.

Active Playing Rewards

After you got proficient enough to play the game and get some consistent wins, the next step is really to grow inside this game. The larger you are able to grow, the higher rewards you are able to get and this is where we will start talking about the multiple income sources in this game! There are the active and the passive income sources and I will try to break them down for you. Let’s start with the most known one: the battle rewards! After each won battle, you are getting rewarded with SPS. This currency is allowing you to vote on different suggestions to improve the game as well as convert it into DEC and buy in-game items with it. It is important to mention that it is recommended to stake as much SPS as possible but we will come to it later.

Very similar to the battle rewards are the season and daily reward chests. You are able to get these by just playing the game and winning battles as well and you are able to get some pretty cool rewards from that. Not only can you get more SPS in those, there is also the chance of getting reward cards, potions and even Card packs! Especially the last one is a pretty sweet reward as this allows you to open the current packs for free. But also reward cards are very nice to see as they help you to increase your Collection Power and help you proceed to higher Divisions.

Passively Earned Income

On the contrary we have some rewards or income streams that can be considered passive. This means that you would not have to play the game actively in order to receive those. Like I said before, if you don’t start playing this game, it is very difficult to get these passive rewards going unless you just throw a bunch of money into it. Anyways, the first and probably most used way of earning passive income in this game is to stake your SPS. This way, you are able to collect some staking rewards in the form of SPS and additionally in Vouchers! These are most needed when a new card set comes around or when new promotions are getting introduced. On top of that you are able to vote for game improvements.

Next are the diverse other ways of earning SPS passively! There are land plots that are being introduced as well as well as validator nodes that are being rewarded. The cool thing about these in-game assets are that on top of earning passively SPS, you are able to sell those items in game once you think that you could use the funds for something else. In my opinion, this is a pretty cool idea and I am defiantly starting to save up for a land plot now! I might be a little late to the party here, but I am more than sure that it is still possible to get some great deals here.

Last but not least we also can rent out our unused cards. Granted, the renting market is not what it used to be. A lot of cards are getting rented out for very cheap but I would argue that this has to do with the current macro situation in the crypto space rather than with the actual in-game situation. The cards are fairly cheap right now and even legendary cards which used to sell for over 100 USD are now worth around 30 USD. I would argue that right now is a great time to improve your deck and bank for the future.

Recent Extensions

Some people might argue that Splinterlands might become irrelevant in the future but I would counter this immediately. With one of the biggest user bases and communities, this game is very hard to get irrelevant. On top of that, the development team is coming up with even more extensions and promotions. Since I have been playing this game for about a year now, there were the chaos Legion Packs, the Riftwatcher Packs as well as many Airdrops. On top of that the Land Sale of this game is starting to roll out and the team is working on many other Projects like the Tower Defense game.

All in all, this game is far away from becoming irrelevant and this is why I think that it will blow up during the next Bull Cycle. In general I think that once the macro economics will calm themselves down, the next big thing will probably be Play 2 Earn. We were able to see the hype around Web 3 during the end phases of the last bull run and I am more than certain that in the next bull run, we will see an even bigger hype into the gaming scene.
