Don't Forget About SPS!

With the NFT and Play2Earn markets taking a bit of a beating, I am noticing most of the general cryptocurrency space starting to look for the next shiny big thing. However, it also feels like interest levels in the space are incredibly cyclical and can be swayed with a singular announcement or development.

This is how I feel about Splinterlands. The market prices for the higher-priced assets have dropped significantly over the last few months and I actually expect that to more or less continue until we see another catalyst (as an active Hive user and fan of the game, I know there have been catalysts lately, but the average person has a very short attention span and interest level).

Take for example the price of Yodin Zaku, arguably the best summoner in the game:

I remember seeing this card trading on average for between $800-$900 for a very significant time period. Now over the last month, @peakmonsters has the cards listed average sale value at $444.679 which is roughly a 45% dip from that $800 mark.

Now, whether or not you believe any in game asset should be selling for that large chunk of change is up to you, but a 45% dip from any price value is a significant one in my book.

It is my belief that we will see some rebounds from the levels we are at now when the news about the game kicks up again and interest levels from the general public get moving again. For that reason, I am viewing this time period as an awesome one for accumulation. I don't know anything about how to value these assets so definitely don't take my word as advice, but I plan on stacking some gold foil legendaries and useful strategic cards while the prices are about half of what they had been.

Additionally, I expect the end of the SPS airdrop to be a catalyst as the supply will stop going up. Given additional benefits for holding SPS coming to light at that point, there will be increased demand for a token that is no longer being put into the supply and the price would theoretically rise. If the governance token of the platform rises to a significant level, we can expect to see speculators taking a chance on other in-game assets.

I just reached a significant SPS goal of having 2,000 staked SPS. I'm no whale by any means, but I was able to accomplish this mostly due to the earnings from the airdrop. If we see price movement in the future, I will look back and be pretty happy that I was always staking my airdrop rather than dumping it.

Whatever your plans are for Splinterlands, I recommend keeping an eye on the number of days left in that airdrop. I can't imagine that the team would drop those tokens with no intention of releasing more features for their use. I could be wrong, but I just feel it's unlikely here.

Good luck with whatever you choose to do!

10k SPS is my goal before the year ends.

I hope you're able to get to that, take advantage of these prices while you can!


Thanks! If I have the funds, I would have done it already. Since time is a factor here, I have no other way but to gradually accumulate the tokens. If in case at that time, the price is already higher, I will still do it at least up to $0.40 per token. Beyond that, I have to reconsider before adding more until I reach my target.


We are going to see many millionaires at the end of the year👀

I hope we do!


🤷🏼‍♂️ Splinterlands is in the news almost every day, Twitter, various Podcasts etc but currently the sentiment for anything crypto is not very good.
For me SPS is also an interesting token which I am accumulating and staking. Apart from that I just like to play the game and tell people about it.

I like the game as well. I think that the biggest media coverage we got was when we were on the NYSE shows that one week, that's huge mainstream financial coverage


Exactly, but unfortunately it didn’t lead to a new wave of players. We‘ll wait and see. Maybe in a few months when crypto sentiment recovers.

I have been staking all the SPS I have been getting from the airdrop and I think they will add more benefits to it over time. After all, I think I have earned enough just off the VOUCHER sales and it can fund most of what I need right now.
