The NFT trading game Splinterlands has become the most popular blockchain game on the market, according to DappRadar. It confirms that the game has exceeded 260,000 daily users to reach the most popular milestone. At the time of writing, the daily user base was around 283,950. Blockchain games provide a fun way to earn cryptocurrency and non-fungible tokens (NFTs). Their “play-to-earn” concept enables users to earn real digital currencies that can also be used outside of games. Splinterlands’ success took many by surprise, however, as its rise to the top of the blockchain gaming charts has seen rapid development.
According to previous figures, Splinterlands had only 10,000 daily users in July. It quickly improved in August when its base was 90,000 players. Given the current daily user base, the current number has nearly tripled in less than a month. To take a look at DappRadar’s live rankings, click here.
Splinterlands is a blockchain-based trading card game. The gaming functionalities enable users to play and trade various types of NFT-based cards. The company consistently leaves space for more users on the platform. To date, the game has issued alpha cards, beta cards, promo cards, reward cards, untamed cards, and dice cards, all of which are sold out. However, there are plans to launch a new set of cards that will accommodate more users in the game.
While users are playing, they are buying, selling, and renting these cards. When they swap these cards in-game, they earn the game’s native currency called Dark Energy Crystals. US dollar values can also be attached to these cards,
Splinterlands’ growth is largely due to the boom in the NFT industry over the past year. For the past month, the volume of trading in NFT consistently exceeded $ 500 million (approximately Rs 3,690 billion) a day. This month, even as NFT trading volume has declined, Splinterlands’ user base has continued to grow.
Splinterlands, like other blockchain games, offers its users the opportunity to earn cryptocurrency and NFTs while playing. These can later be traded on marketplaces. The attraction of Splinterlands lies in the fact that no knowledge of cryptocurrencies is required to play the game.
