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.
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.
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?).
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.
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.
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.
