Splinterlands is a utility-centric collectibles card game that combines the model of a deck-building game and an auto-battler built on the Hive blockchain.
Splinterlands brings a new worldview by combining the traditional card game and blockchain technology into a gaming ecosystem where players can have full ownership of their cards.
Splinterlands requires players to collect cards that have a variety of characteristics to battle against other players in different tournaments and ranked battles to earn rewards.
Splinterlands NFTs are divided into two types: Summoners and Monsters. The Summoners are used to summon monsters while Monsters are the ones that actually fight in a battle.
The Splinterlands NFTs are available on the secondary marketplaces for users to buy, sell, or trade among other players. Some people also rent out the Splinterlands card for money as well.
The game also features a utility and governance token called Splintershards (SPS). According to CoinMarketCap, the maximum supply for SPS is 3,000,000,000
– SPS holders receive rewards from the SPS staking rewards pool for staking – It is a token for the Governance vote in SplinterlandsDAO on the BSC – The more a player stakes SPS tokens, the more voting power they will have.
Splinterlands recorded a sudden surge of interest in mid-2022 and has continued to maintain its hype by introducing new cards and exciting features for the players.
