Are You Up To Date With Your Splinterland News??

in hive-167922 •  6 months ago 

Hello Monster Maniacs, as we all know things in the Splinterlands world move fast so its likely you might have overlooked some of the more recent happenings. In this post we will go over some of the recent announcements and other activities of note in the Splinterlands universe.

Splinterlands Ethereum Integration

On 1/10/2020 The Splinterlands team announced that players can convert their cards to ERC-721 tokens on the Ethereum blockchain where they can be bought and sold on NFT marketplace sites such as Open Sea.

Max Level Alpha SS for Auction on Opensea

The founders of Splinterlands purchased three Alpha Selenia Sky cards and combined them to create a max level card. They then listed it for auction on Opensea. The listing can be seen via clicking anywhere on this highlighted area. Currently the highest bid is just 1.2 ETH ($200* USD). Looks like someone will be getting a great deal on the maxed SS card (Will that person be you?).

Splinterlands Public API Policy

Third party developers will be most interested in this update. The Splinterlands team have announced that they will be implementing the following policy regarding the use of the public APIs:

  • Spamming or other abuse of API calls will result in source IP addresses being blocked and/or rate limiting and/or other preventative measures to be implemented without notice.

  • Breaking changes to any API calls will be announced on our blog at least 7 days before the change goes into effect, except in extreme cases where the change is necessary to ensure the smooth operation of the game.

  • Splinterlands does not assume any responsibility for any losses or damages incurred from downtime, errors, or other issues that may occur with the public API.

Acquisition Of SPT Tokens

SPT (Splintertalk) is the official blogging token of the Splinterlands game. Creating/Curating content on the offical Splintertalk site (https://www.splintertalk.io/) or using the SPT tag on created topics within the Steem blockchain can potentially earn you some of the SPT token. @abrockman has managed to become the number one holder of the SPT token and he did so in just a few short months (very impressive). Some of the other top holders of the SPT token and be seen below.

DEC To Be Listed on TronTrade

In the past DEC for TRX was mainly done on TronWatch. With TronWatch shutting down that left DEC/TRX traders without a DEC/TRX market to trade on. Such traders will be happy to hear that TronTrade plans on filling that void. Starting this Wednesday, January 22nd, at 9 AM UTC DEC will be listed on TronTrade.

I been thinking about buying spt to get to 100k. Maybe a good investment considering how low prices are right now.

I think SPT is very undervalued atm but it also currently has no sink. I'm of the opinion that some day the founders will give it an ingame sink for Splinterlands but who knows, its possible that won't happen.

Knew it all :D I am pretty caught up

Thanks for letting others know aswell, I am have been to lazy to write in the past weeks

When you get around to creating a post be sure to spam me the link :)

SWEET !!!

thx for the all-in-one update

it will nice to be able to trade $dec/$trx again ;)

Thanks for the heads up about tronwatch closing... I had to pull funds today

No problem, I'm happy you seen the news so you could get your funds out.

hi @rentmoney

Would you mind sharing with me how is ref-link program structured within this particular game? Do you see any real results coming from their affiliate marketing program?

Cheers
Piotr

Splinterlands offers 5% of Rev share, this excludes individual card purchases. The process is very simple, one just needs to copy and paste their affiliate link from the official Splinterlands site and share it with someone who wants to sign up.

Something I noticed in the crypto world is affiliate rev share is very low. This makes it hard to earn anything of significance unless you can get massive amounts of sign ups or someone who is willing to spend thousands on the game. Seeing I'm posting about and invested in Splinterlands it makes sense that I would use my ref-link but I do wish that Splinterlands would reconsider their model for the affiliate program.

To give you an idea below are my affiliate payments for the last 18 days. Only four transactions that total around 7.5 STEEM and 200 DEC. The Starter set purchases were $10 purchases made by new players I signed up to the game. The booster pack purchases were $2 purchases made with the in game currency DEC. If you have any more questions fire away.

Wow.

Thank you for your prompt reply @rentmoney

Your comment is almost as long as regular posts are :) Appreciate it a lot.

Indeed. Revshares are mostly a joke. @holybread decided to give 5% - and not even in form of anything tradable - in form of item which can be only used within it's game :( Very discouraging and I dont see future for many of those ref-link programms.

How would you organize refshare if you were behind steemmonsters?

ps.
Could you please spare few minutes of your time and have a look at this discussion/proposal that I'm brainstorming with few other guys from "project HOPE"?

Perhaps you would find it worth to join our curation trail. Generally idea is to create a "trigger", which would allow people to join curation trail with their upvote before strong one (300k SP) upvote would follow.

As a person who has done affiliate work for years I do sit back and admire the cleaverness of the affiliate system Holybread set up. As an affiliate who would like to earn from their game, earning 5% of a none transferable in game currency isn't ideal.

How would you organize refshare if you were behind steemmonsters?

I would create two seperate programs. First I would leave the 5% program for all to enjoy. I would rename the 5% rev share program to refer a friend bonus.

I would then create an official affiliate site in which players who are interested would need to apply to in order to be apart of. Those who get approved would be official affiliates who would earn based on performance. For example, Sign up 0-25 new players and earn 5% rev share commission. Sign up 50+ earn 8% , Sign up 100+ earn 10%.

In truth Five percent is ridiculously low and isn't going to attract any serious affiliate marketers. When I was more into affiliate marketing I wouldn't even bother advertise anything that didn't pay at least 20-25% rev share.

I would be more than happy to read your post and I plan on doing just that once I can allot some time to give it the attention it deserves. As for joining a curation trail, I do manual curation myself which puts my VP at a very low percentage (it was at 50% yesterday) so I'm unable to join any curation trails as it would likely zap my VP. If I ever become dormat with my manual curation I will consider your projects trail as one of the ones on top of my list to follow.
