Splintershards Token & Airdrop Launch Announcement

The Splinterlands team is extremely excited to announce that the Splintershards (SPS) token is scheduled to launch on Monday, July 26th, 2021 at 12:00 ET / 16:00 UTC!

At that time, an SPS-BNB liquidity pool will be created on the PancakeSwap platform that runs on Binance Smart Chain (BSC) and will be seeded with a significant amount of liquidity to allow users to begin trading against. The SPS tokens added as liquidity will come from the DAO foundation funds and the BNB tokens will come from the proceeds of the private token sale.

Additionally, a SWAP.HIVE:SPS diesel pool will be created on Hive Engine (https://tribaldex.com/dieselpools/pools) with liquidity added from the same sources for anyone who would like to trade SPS against HIVE.

The Splinterlands website will also be updated ahead of the token launch to include players' SPS token balance in the top HUD and the new SPS Management page which can be accessed by clicking on the SPS token balance. The SPS Management page will be the main dashboard within the Splinterlands website for players to view and manage everything about their SPS tokens.

Once the token is launched and the SPS Management page is released to the Splinterlands website, SPS tokens will be able to be staked, transferred to other Splinterlands accounts, and transferred between users' Splinterlands game accounts and their BSC wallet (via the same bridge mechanism currently available for transferring DEC tokens).

Please stay tuned for additional exchange listing announcements and launch promotions as we get closer to the release date!

Airdrop Announcement

The Splinterlands team is also excited to announce that the 365-day SPS token airdrop event will begin on Tuesday, July 27th, at 12:00 ET / 16:00 UTC, one day after the SPS token launch.

Every day for one year at approximately 12:00 ET / 16:00 UTC, a snapshot will be taken of all of the Splinterlands assets held across six different blockchain platforms (Hive, WAX, Ethereum, BSC, Steem, and Tron) in order to determine the amount of the total pool of 400M SPS airdrop tokens each wallet address is eligible to receive that day.

Airdrop tokens will be able to be claimed from all platforms through the SPS Management page on the Splinterlands website starting after the first snapshot on the date mentioned above. Please note that airdrop rewards will accrue to your account if they are not claimed, so it is not necessary to claim them every day.

For more details about the SPS airdrop, please see the Airdrop Section of the SPS Token Whitepaper.

SPS Reward Pools

There are seven different reward pools planned for the SPS token as described in the Play to Earn and Reward Pools section of the SPS Token Whitepaper.

One of the most interesting and innovative aspects of the SPS token is the play-to-earn mechanism for ranked battles that will distribute rewards from both the Staking and Ranked Battles reward pools. The Splinterlands team expects that feature to be completed and released sometime in Q3 of 2021, however, in the meantime we plan to launch a simplified version of those reward pools to start rewarding both active players and players who stake SPS tokens as soon as possible.

Starting on Monday, August 2nd, 2021, the Staking reward pool will be launched which will distribute new SPS tokens among everyone who has SPS tokens staked in their Splinterlands game account. The Staking rewards pool will start at 7.5M SPS tokens per month, or approximately 250k SPS tokens per day that will go to SPS token stakers in proportion to their amount staked as a percentage of the total amount staked by all players.

Also, starting on Monday, August 2nd, 2021, the Ranked Battles reward pool will be launched allowing players to earn SPS tokens for winning Ranked battles. The Ranked Battles rewards pool will also start at 7.5M SPS tokens per month, or approximately 250k SPS tokens per day, and will be distributed in the same manner as DEC tokens are currently distributed for Ranked battle wins.

This means that for each Ranked battle win, a "reward shares" value will be calculated for the winner based on the square of their current rating and any additional modifiers from things like their Energy Capture Rate (ECR), win streak, guild bonuses, and the use of Gold Foil or Alpha/Promo Edition cards in the battle. This "reward shares" value will then be compared against the total amount of reward shares earned from all battles in the last 24 hours to determine the amount of SPS tokens received by the player from the SPS Ranked Battles reward pool.

Finally, the Tournament Prize SPS reward pool will also begin to be allocated to all Splinterlands-sponsored tournaments starting with the next set that are scheduled to be created in August. The Tournament Prize reward pool starts at 2.5M SPS tokens per month and will be added as prizes to the existing tournament schedule in addition to the standard DEC prizes for those tournaments.

The remaining reward pools (Guild Brawls, LP Incentives, Land Expansion, and Oracle Rewards) will be launched in the future as those features are completed. Please see the Release Schedule section of the SPS Token Whitepaper for estimated timing of those releases.

Benefits of Staking SPS Tokens

As described in the Staking & Earning Section of the SPS Token Whitepaper, Staked SPS tokens are not liquid and may not be transferred or sold. Staked SPS tokens may be unstaked over a period of four weeks, with 25% of the total amount of tokens being unstaked becoming available as liquid SPS tokens at the end of each of the four weeks from when the unstaking operation is submitted.

In order to encourage as many SPS token holders as possible to lock up their tokens via the staking mechanism, there will be numerous benefits for holders of staked SPS tokens in the game, with more to be released over time.

The primary benefit of staking SPS tokens is participating in the governance voting system which is expected to be released in Q4 of 2021. This will give players an unprecedented level of control and ownership over the parameters and overall direction of the Splinterlands game and ecosystem.

In addition to the governance voting, starting within a week of the SPS token launch players who stake SPS tokens will begin receiving a portion of the 7.5M SPS / month Staking reward pool as described above.

Finally, we also want to remind players that going forward nearly all offers and promotions that take place in Splinterlands will require SPS tokens to be staked in the player's account in order to participate, and/or to determine the maximum level at which they can participate. The first such promotion is planned to be the upcoming presale of the new Chaos Legion set of cards, which we expect will begin in September of this year.

The Chaos Legion presale is expected to offer a number of rewards for purchasers including one or more limited-edition promo cards and in-game titles, however the amount of presale packs each account will be able to purchase and the level of rewards they will be eligible to receive will be limited by the amount of SPS tokens staked in their account.

More details and specifics about the Chaos Legion presale including the SPS token staking requirements will be released as the event gets closer.

What an enormous step. Amazed with everything the team has done before, but this is going to take the game to the next level. Congrats.

Great job... A major homerun... Thanks for everything you all are doing!!!

This changes everything indeed, i love the tokenomics and the airdrop is so cleverly constructed, well done little genius, all to the same moon :-)

Great news... What an incredible job you have done from a simple card game to a whole universe. Impressive 👍

Yes! Thanks for the great news! This is simply amazing. I am very much excited about listings on different cexes and dexes hopefully?
We will see SOONtm

So the new SPA token is a BEP 20 token? That is, is it a token created on the Binance Smart Chain?

Thanks for reply! I love Splinterlands... I think currently is the best game blockchain based

Tremendous news and Splinterlands will soon become a $100 million game and expand outside that milestone. A true crypto game that opened an entire ecosystem to its players!

These are such good news!! When we think Splinterlands can't get any better... we are proven wrong! ;)

@yabapmatt which whitelisted contracts are valid for the liquidity pools on BSC? Pancake only or others?

If I have DEC tokens on HIVE-Engine will I receive SPS tokens from the AirDrop?

Yes

Thank you!

How are delegated cards calculated in Airdrop?
Does the true owner (the lender) get the SPS for a card, or does the person who borrowed the card get it?

Owner of cards will get SPS.

The owner of the card gets the airdrop points. :)

This changes everything indeed, i love the tokenomics and the airdrop is so cleverly constructed, well done little genius, all to the same moon :-)

This is great news. I'm not familiar with the Binance Smart Chain, I'll start studying it. If I understand correctly, the new SPS token will run on the Binance Smart Chain

Yes, they will be mainly based on BSC, but you will not need to have a BSC wallet address or use BSC to use SPS. You can also hold them in your game account wallet and use them within the game.

thanks for this answer! I congratulate you on everything you have done ... you invented the best blockchain based game (this is my opinion)

Great to see Splinterlands so close to this groundbreaking release!

So if Im reading this correctly we dont have to do anything to get the airdrops just basically have an account and we get something. Correct?

All you will have to do is claim them through the Splinterlands website. You can claim them as often as you want, and if you don't claim them then they will just continue to accrue in your account.

I had bought some cards for my son @shreyansh long times back and he was not playing it since many days. Today asked him to check out, but he says, he does not have any airdrop, where can he check for more details ?

We have chosen to support your post because you are one of the good promoters of Hive on Twitter based on our Hive Twitter Daily Report

We appreciate your time and enthusiasm for promoting Hive.
Keep up the good job 😍😍😍

I am so excited about this news :)

Great news! I really looking forward :)

i love the renting of cards now in the games. thanks so much

One big step for Splinterlands. One giant leap for mankind.

land and totem tokens on hive-engine? will they be counted as assets at this time?

Changing gaming forever!

So if the whitepaper says I get 1 token per DEC, does this mean each day over a year I get 1/365 of a token for each DEC I own?

Nevermind I found the answer.

"Nearly every Splinterlands asset will be eligible to earn SPS tokens in the airdrop. Each type of asset will be assigned a specific amount of "airdrop points" that it is worth. Then the total number of airdrop points will be added up across all assets in all accounts in the game and held externally once each day and ~1,100,000 SPS tokens (400M / 365 days) will be divided by the total number of airdrop points to determine how many SPS tokens each airdrop point is worth that day."

So I get 1 point per DEC and every other point I accumulate is added to give me a daily point score. This then forms a percentage of all points on the platform and I get that percent share of the daily 400M tokens in that days air drop.
Sweet!

I can't wait for that first drop...

Cant wait for it! :D

Really impressed by the Splinterlands team. Soon it will be the first blockchain game.
What about credits?, there is no airdrop points for the credits. @yabapmatt
kindly clear it.

Nope, Credits are not included. You would need to spend the Credits. Here's the complete list: https://sps.splinterlands.com/airdrop

My utmost congratulations to the team and all who helped make this possible. This was a mighty big dream you guys had and to see it come to reality must be amazing for you. I'm so glad to be part of this ride. THANK YOU for taking me along with you.

I'm so excited for this, and so impressed with the level of thought and planning that the Splinterlands team put into this. This is going to take Splinterlands, and gaming in general with it, to a whole new level. Let's go!

This has to be the best update you have done in terms of tokenomics. I'm very impressed. We need these things to make sure @splinterlands remain as the #1 blockchain game. There is nobody else catching up with a similar product AFAIK. It is best to create as big of a lead as possible before true competition emerge.

Can you fix the game im getting no reward if i open it from the android app,dont know why

And i will farm DEC in my weekend :)

so moon soon? :)

This is what I'm waiting for in whole July.
Finally, it comes!

So that's why the SWAP.HIVE:DEC pool has gone crazy! =)

Amazing news indeed. I am actually stoked by the exponential free marketing impact this causes on HIVE as a chain that is uniting cross-chain adoption with businesses around the blockchains that bring lowest fees and faster transactions speeds. Of course, my preferred one is HIVE/HIVE-Engine, but it's essential to understand how big this can become if collaboration takes place.

Great example on leading this Splinterlands team!

So that's why the SWAP.HIVE:DEC pool has gone crazy!

Why has it gone crazy? Can you elaborate? What is the advantage of getting in now?

Right now, none I think (at least to my knowledge, but I might be wrong). But that might change soon, not sure. And also as soon as the snapshot is taken for the splinterlands airdrop, some because it counts double compared with having DEC alone in your wallet.

Ah. I see. But the downside is if the price of DEC keeps going up we end up with less DEC and more Hive I think.

It will be interesting to watch the numbers though. I've "lost" a huge amount (to me at least) of DEC in the DEC-BUSD pool and am not wanting to risk that again. 😂

!ENGAGE 20

So happy it could be fatal

Sounds good? Well above my brain capacity to comprehend. But sounds good.

Think amoeba level brain activity....

Excellent news for Splinterlands, very much looking forward to this release. Thanks for sharing.

I'm super excited for the SPS drop. I really hope that this system will bring us closer to being able to actually make a living off of games like this one, if we dedicate ourselves to learning it, marketing it, leveraging resale values, etc.

This is great news! I'm excited to see this. Thanks for your awesome job, you guys are amazing.👍

'...seeded with a significant amount of liquidity to allow users to begin trading against. The SPS tokens added as liquidity will come from the DAO foundation funds and the BNB tokens will come from the proceeds of the private token sale.'

How deep will the initial pool be on both sides?

wow.... this is amazing!

OMG! Totally amazing, I've just shared on my Twitter this awesome news! I can't wait to see that SPS token live!

Let's keep growing up team!
