Farming on the Blockchain
Another dCrops Season has come to an end, and this time it took me a little longer to claim my season rewards, thus the belated report. See, the Beta Edition Presale is currently underway, and since I bought myself some BETA packs on day one, I decided to wait for my CROP Power to build up a bit more before claiming this Season's Reward Chest. It worked like a charm, and I managed to claim a Chest containing 27 items.
That's 35% more compared to last Season, plus my draws were based on the new drop rates for Gold and Iron Ore Reward NFTs. Thankfully, I got lucky and scored two Epic Reward NFTs worth 15 $HIVE or 12k $CROP each. We will get to that later on.
But what is dCrops?
It's pretty simple, dCrops is a #Play2Earn farming simulator built on the Hive Blockchain. It's a blockchain-based game where players own Land and Seed NFTs they can use in order to produce Crops which can be sold for Shares. The game has four Seasons just like real life, and farmers earn $CROP tokens based on the amount of Shares acquired by the end of each Season.
Players also earn Holding Rewards on a daily basis in the form of $HIVE dividends, based on their CROP Power. More information on Holding Rewards can be found here.
For those looking to dive into the mechanics and the economy of the game, I highly recommend the below, in this particular order:
That should be enough to help you get started.
Season 31 Quest Rewards Breakdown
Once again, I made sure to reroll all sub-quests I did not like before planting anything, in order to only have to work with Fall Season Seeds and Crops. I've said it before and I'll say it again: this is the first thing you need to do when a new Season starts, especially now that Reward Chests are more rewarding than ever.
Keep stacking those Reward NFTs and don't ask questions.
As mentioned, this time around I was rewarded with a Chest containing 27 items in total, and I was pleasantly surprised to see a bunch of Reward NFTs in there. As a matter of fact, I just scored my first Epic Reward NFTs today. That's right, not just one, it's two of those Iron Ore babies.
Let's have a look at my loot for this Season:
Here's a quick breakdown of those beauties:
|Item||Qty||Total Value ($CROP)||Total Value ($HIVE)||Total Value ($USD)|
|Speed-Gro||150 $CROP||0.47 $HIVE||0.28 $USD|
|Ferti-Plus||100 $CROP||0.31 $HIVE||0.19 $USD|
|Mystery Seeds||320 $CROP||0.99 $HIVE||0.59 $USD|
|Stone NFT||4,500 $CROP||3.90 $HIVE||2.34 $USD|
|Wood NFT||4,500 $CROP||4.20 $HIVE||2.52 $USD|
|Copper NFT||6,000 $CROP||10.80 $HIVE||6.48 $USD|
|Iron Ore NFT||24,000 $CROP||30 $HIVE||18 $USD|
|TOTAL||39,570 $CROP||50.67 $HIVE||30.40 $USD|
This is by far the most rewarding Season Quest I've ever completed in dCrops since I started playing the game roughly one year ago. Looks like now is the time to grind and stack Reward NFTs before the BETA edition implementations go live and take your farming experience on the Hive Blockchain to the next level.
Thoughts and Plans
This time things are different, as last week I decided to engage in land expansion and bought me another 17 Fertile Land NFTs (Rare) @ 5.88 $HIVE per NFT for a total of 99.96 $HIVE. The main reason behind my decision was my conviction that Land NFTs will pump like crazy once the Beta edition features come into play. It's just speculation, but I believe people are going to have a hard time accommodating the new Seeds and Buildings without having to resort to land purchases.
The bad thing is that a Fertile Land NFT is currently trading @ 4.9 $HIVE, but it only takes a single NFT purchase to take the price back to 5.5 $HIVE. Regardless, I'm looking to play the long-run game here so current land NFT prices don't really matter to me. The good thing is that I now have enough space for my earned Mystery Seeds, so they are already producing goodies for the new Season. More on that in tomorrow's Season report.
Regarding the rest of my earned boosters, I'm using all my Ferti-Plus but no Speed-Gro at all this time. Once again, please keep in mind that boosters must be applied before planting anything for them to take effect. Finally, my Reward NFTs will keep resting in my inventory until we get all the necessary details regarding the upcoming Beta edition implementations.
