Splinterlands Continues To Grow

Splinterlands is a free-to-start play-to-earn game built on the Hive blockchain. For users to trade their in-game assets and gain access to their keys, they must buy the Summoner’s Spellbook. This costs $10.

Earlier this month, Splinterlands CEO Jesse ‘Aggroed’ Reich, said there was a “non-zero chance Splinterlands gets the number one spot on DappRadar soon.”

In the official Splinterlands Discord server, Aggroed shared some further statistics about Splinterlands’ userbase. As of September 20, Splinterlands had 816,923 total registrations, with 399,538 total Spellbook purchases.

With an average of 15,480 sign-ups per day, Aggroed estimates it will take just under 12 days until Splinterlands reaches 1 million registrations.

However, Aggroed noted that bots taking advantage of an exploit in Bronze League may have increased the number of sign-ups and Spellbook purchases. Aggroed also said the team will get a fix in place for the exploit.

Despite its popularity, a variety of other NFT games outperformed Splinterlands in terms of incoming volume.

In the past week, $99,130 worth of HIVE has entered Splinterlands. This puts it in 30th place for weekly volume. Axie Infinity remains top for volume, seeing $69,250,000 worth of ETH enter in the past week, according to DappRadar.

Splinterlands’ SPS token currently sits at $0.2476 – up 4.94% in the past 24 hours (via CoinMarketCap).
