As play-to-earn gaming continues to grow, Splinterlands, the top-rated NFT-based game, has hit a key milestone. After spending six successive months as the game with the highest player activity, Splinterlands has surpassed the 1 billion battles mark. According to blockchain analytics site dappRadar, the game achieved the feat on January 25th, 2022.
Passing such a milestone is a momentous occasion for Splinterlands and the GameFI universe as a whole. Essentially, it means that NFT-based games are a sustainable model for generating passive income for millions of gamers worldwide. For Splinterlands, the milestone underlines its attractiveness as a P2E destination. Additionally, Splinterlands has stamped its authority as an industry pacesetter.
Commenting on the achievement, Jesse “Aggroed” Reich, CEO & Co-Founder of Splinterlands, described it as “a historic moment in gaming history”.
It seems that Splinterlands isn’t about to slow down anytime. The game’s developers recently launched a monster card pack christened “Chaos Legion” . A few days after the launch, 7 million packs have already sold. This shows that the game could be headed to achieving even greater milestones. Ultimately, it could redefine NFTs and the play-to-earn concept.
Cross-chain compatibility is becoming increasingly essential to the development of blockchain-based games. Consequently, Splinterlands has partnered with Terablock. The partnership will see the gaming platform utilize the TeraBlock Bridge to facilitate token swapping across multiple blockchains. The move will enhance the usability of Splinterlands tokens and is likely to attract more gamers.
Splinterlands is a trading card game with in-game NFT characters used for fighting, trading, renting, buying and selling. Players earn rewards in form of in-game token called Dark Energy Crystals. In addition, there are highly valuable but scarce NFTs that players have to compete for. With more than 400,000 active users and more joining daily, the game is experiencing exponential growth. Additionally, it is currently the most active gaming platform, recording up to 4 million transactions per day. Splinterlands has built a sustainable P2E gaming model, where players can play and trade anytime. However, if you want to take some time off gaming, you can still earn from your cards. Instead of letting them lie idle, you can rent them out to other players.
