It has been a busy month for everyone within the Splinterlands universe. A new edition of cards called UNTAMED was recently released and the very successful Kickstarter/Fundition campaigns has ended.
With most players excitingly opening their UNTAMED boosters they have bought and trying to figure out what new Monsters they want to add to their collection (Likely All Of Them) its no surprise that an important announcement may have been overlooked by some.
Splinterlands + WAX Partnership
What Is WAX??
WAX is a cutting-edge blockchain platform and cryptocurrency token which is highly focused on the field of digital assets and Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs). An NFT is a unique, tradable, token built on a blockchain.

OPSkins has 3000+ daily active users and over 1M registered users!
