The next generation of collectible card games, Splinterlands, reached a major 100,000 accounts milestone.
The Non-Fungible Token trading card gaming ecosystem was delighted to announce that over 100,000 users successfully created accounts on its innovative platform. Splinterlands is a trading card game that uses blockchain technology to let users play, trade anytime, and earn every time they win.
According to the blockchain-based card games, the milestone proves the real-world adoption of NFTs to trading card games. As a result, it ensures higher recognition and interest from the gamer community.
In addition, Splinterlands noted that it adopts the play-to-earn mechanism by assigning real and organic value to gaming items. This allows Splinterlands to achieve higher retention rates on players who always have good progress in the game.
Compared to traditional games in which players don’t care about their growth, on Splinterlands, they are excited to keep track of their cards. This is due to the chance of them growing and increasing in real value.
Started in 2018 as a grassroots effort to build a community around blockchain trading cards, Splinterlands has given millions of dollars in value to its 100,000+ players. The firm did this while growing to achieve 600,000 daily blockchain transactions and over $20,000 in card trading volume per day.
Following this, Dr. Jesse “Aggroed” Reich, Splinterlands co-founder and CEO, said,
This is really an exceptional moment for the community. We’re overwhelmed by positive feedback and the community is growing every day. By supporting us and playing our game, they’re empowering themselves, which in turn lets us keep providing them value and rewards in every way we can. It’s pretty sweet.
The team further added that players can earn rewards for creating and sharing content. This is the result of the unique nature of the Hive blockchain upon which the platform is built.
Moreover, Splinterlands stressed that it focuses first on a community of gamers instead of simple speculation. It allows the community to create and posts and also share their game’s progress on its native blogging platform—Splintertalk.io.
Further, Dr. Jesse “Aggroed” Reich noted they always put the community first. As they believe that the community is the most important asset. Thus, they want to empower them by ensuring that they reap value and rewards of their own.
He also said that they do their best to listen to them and never take them for granted.
“With their help, we’ll grow this thing into the first mainstream blockchain game,” Reich added.
of note, Splinterlands accepts over 20 cryptocurrencies as well as PayPal payments. As a user-friendly platform, players without any crypto experience can even start playing with just an email address and password.
The team also announced the upcoming release of the Splintershards (SPS), which is a governance token.
