What A Year It's Been....365 Days Of SPS!

in Splinterlands2 months ago

"Bro....Are you telling me you spent 200 bucks on that graphic and now someone is selling the same one for $3000?"

That was more or less the conversation I had with @rick-scarrow about a year ago when I was out in British Columbia visiting him.

"Yeah man, I'm blown away...And I think the prices of these are going to explode in a few days when this 'SPS' air drop starts...."

This was the card...

And sure, it's no longer on the market for a few grand but it was at this moment a year ago....That made me believe, #Splinterlands was going to change my life forever.

So you guys know how the story went....

Over the past calendar year, every day the @splinterlands game air dropped their SPS token to holders of the assets in the game. And right around the time, things were...Amazing!

  • SPS was trading at like 60 cents or more....

  • Gold Foil Legendaries were on the market for thousands and thousand of dollars...

  • The promise of Chaos Legion and LAND was just around the corner...

  • And oh yeah, a bunch of us were making a killing off the rental markets!

I have to be honest with you, I literally thought I would be paying my bills and living off my efforts and assets here in Splinterlands...Forever!!

Oh man, did I ever have big dreams!

I dove into the white paper inch by inch and discovered this crazy concept the Splinterlands team came up called - Player staking!

As soon as I understood what that meant, we jumped at the opportunity to create our own gaming guild in the game - The Index Guild

Complete with custom made jerseys for the players we'd hope to attract:

And then....

Reality set in.

Chaos Legion was released with millions upon millions of packs that could be purchased and of course, right around this time...The crypto markets took a hit. Big name games like Axie Infinity seemed to be on the fringe and the entire hype around Play 2 Earn was...Quickly being silenced.

Or was it?

A lot of the newer players in the game may not know this but Splinterlands was basically born and crafted in a bear market.

This thing became what it is today because the developers and community saw the bigger picture and continued to build. And that hasn't stopped at all. In fact, if you have been reading any of my previous Splinterlands related content, you'll know I'm even more bullish than I was a year ago....When I was living off the game LOL

So here we are....

It's literally the last day of the SPS air drop and lots of people are excited (and scared lol) about what the future of the token will bring.

Here's how I did over the year...

I ended up selling quite a bit of my SPS, I stacked some but every day I was paying my bills and feeding my family from that and the rental income I was generating. It was a great year!

Going into today's final air drop I'll be sitting over 50k staked SPS!

It's not where I could have been if I didn't let some SPS go but I'm still very happy with it. I believe in the future of Splinterlands so we'll let this ride and see how it goes.

I truly believe player staking is going to change...Everything!

And that's not to mention land expansion, Riftwatchers and so much more coming through the pipelines....

What a year!

Special thanks to the entire Splinterlands team for giving us such a powerful experience. I know I'm sad to see the air drop end but still....That future looks so bright!

Who knows....Maybe Almo might end up 10x'ing in the next 365 days :)

Nice. I am just over 50k too. Congrats. Its been a crazy ride for sure. Lets hope we see some price action now.

!PIZZA

Yeah for sure, be nice to see it bump up a bit...But also, what they have planned on how to earn it now.

!CTP

Now that the airdrop is out of the way, I hope prices start to move up after the selling is done. Still, I think this is a pretty sustainable level compared to the hype we had last year.

Yeah, and with what's coming it should help the entire economy. Crossing fingers!

!CTP

I am still staking, same with my kids, lol. They don't even play, but I have them staking some SPS and holding some card packs, which still remain unopened. Thinking they may go up in value one day, lol. Or one day I'll just get them to actually play the game, lol.

That's what I did, literally just bought and held...But then I got hooked on the actual game play lol

!CTP

It's crazy in hindsight I would have sold SPS at over $0.50 and most likely been able to buy back in. However lol we all know that wouldn't have gone that way so I'm happy with where I'm at and looking forward to the next chapter with SPS, it sounds promising long term!

I think you played in smart and think about how much Splinter lands help you with bill pays etc during that time. That's a huge win right there if you ask me. Stupid me I've just been stacking lol that's my old mindset, stake and wait stack and wait haha but at some point you gotta pull the trigger and cash out a bit! *Slaps myself haha

Yeah man, it was a great few months lol I felt like the king of the world. Hope that it rebounds with the use cases and drives the price up more this year!

!CTP

Congrats man... indeed it was a great year i am near to hitting the 50k soon only 1k remaining that i will buy or will make from the staking rewards

Very nice!

Congrats on the milestone!

!CTP

Been an amazing year. I'm having some more staked SPS, but could have been more, if I would have not dumped them at the start. Well, it was the wiser choice, as I sold most close to $1.

Let's see what the future will bring during the next development.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Yeah when it was high, I was literally living off my daily air drop lol

!CTP

Man it was pretty much the same thing with me at the start, as I sold a decent chunk of SPS to cater to personal shit. I paid rent, and handled pretty much everything with the daily airdrop. When DEC started going crazy, I also sold some to cover bills.

It was such an amazing time and to think that it was only one year ago is fascinating. It feels like such a long time ago and at the same time, it sort of feels like it happened yesterday.

LOoking forward to the future. I ended up with 20K SPS staked and I'll be slowly buying more until I reach 100K at some point. I don't think SPS will be this cheap forever, so I need to secure as much as possible

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Yeah man, it was a great time to be alive LOL

But you are right, it's cheap like this for now...Player staking I think will sky rocket it. Hope so lol

!CTP

The rises & falls makes or breaks an Empire.

Even through the harsh conditions the Emperor is wearing clothes & it wasn't all huff n bluff.

Keep on enjoying & appreciate you sharing your journey.

Just like Splinterlands, your shirt design will improve.

ha ha ha ha Hey I've never claimed to be a world class designer lol

!CTP

It's definitely been a journey over the past year and it looks like player staking won't be coming out for a while. I remember you being all hyped up over it and you were talking about it quite often on your streams (I watched the re-runs).

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Yeah man, I think that's going to bring so much more attention to Splinterlands. Can't wait to see it unleashed!

!CTP

I am excited to see what is next for splinterlands. Incoming some impressive changes!

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Absolutely!

Just getting better and better!

!CTP

and I felt powerful with my 1k of sps in stake hahahahaha 😅

Oh as good as I think I'm doing, I watch guys with hundreds of thousands of staked SPS lol Those are legends!!

!CTP

Not sure what I am going to do with my SPS I am thinking of just waiting and see what happens after the dust settles.

I'm Getting there :P

slowly but surely is the way!!

!CTP

Awesome work John!! It's a really exciting time and we are in a bear market!! What will the bull market give us!?!

That’s the thing. It’ll bring lots of people that say ‘i wish i got in earlier’ lol

!CTP

I just don't see this sort of buliding that takes place on Hive anywhere else.. its great to be early! !CTP

I believe so stacked pretty much all mine from the airdrop. I couldn't believe those initial rental market returns......

This game is the gift that keeps on giving.

!CTP

My word! Hahaha look at that rendition, I think you were quite the early investor and seeing splinterlands moon to that extent, you must have built so many financial case scenario, but the dip happened, the future seems brighter though. The SPS end would herald something more exciting I guess. 50k staked is humongous.

It would have been a lot more but I literally lived off it this past year lol All good things come to an end, but just means the next level of this game should take it to the stratosphere!

!CTP

Great year! Let's hope Almo 10X 😎

I finally figured out how to use it in a game now lol I may never wanna sell it lolol

!CTP

Ha ha, there is something to it😎
