Greetings Splinterfolk!

The purpose of this series of posts is to record my journey through the Splinterlands Market and ultimately determine if it was worth it or not.

At the beginning of July 2022, I decided to undertake a new initiative: Card Investments. There are two main strategies when it comes to card investing: Card Flipping and Rental Cards. Card Flipping is pretty straightforward, buying a card at a low price to sell at a higher price. Rental Cards are bought with the sole purpose of renting them out to make passive income. I will be focusing on the Rental Cards approach but I might dabble in trying to flip a card or two.

The card rental market is not so straightforward and can be broken down into two categories: Power Renting and Meta Renting. Power Renting are those cards that have high collection power and people rent them just to meet the power requirements for the higher leagues. Meta Renting are the cards that people actually play with to win matches. I will be focusing on buying meta cards to rent out as Power Renting has lost its value due to the change in relationship between highest achieved league and End of Season rewards.

To kickstart this initiative, I decided to sell nearly every single card that I earned from grinding daily quests and EoS Rewards in order to build enough starting capital.

My Referral Program.png

While Splinterlands does have a referral program in place, it only benefits the referrer and not the referee. Therefore, it is up to us (the existing players) to create our own referral program to help new players enter into the game. Here is how mine works:

  • Sign up for Splinterlands through my referral link here.
  • Once you buy the Summoner's Spellbook, I will receive 500 credits ($0.50) which I will use to buy DEC, cards, or both to help you start your Splinterlands journey.
  • All you need to do is comment below the IGN you used to sign up with. Once I have verified it, I will reach out to see what you would like to spend your $0.50 on and then send it over.
