I have been a splinterlands player for a few years now. During my early days playing the game was my good source of income. I should say that it was very good because most of the good cards I got were all by playing the game regularly. After a point, I also invested some more money and improved my deck. Recently after I started focusing on other things on Hive where most of my time is spent developing something on Hive, I couldn't spend time playing the game.
Even though I don't play the game regularly, I'm still a big fan of Splinterlands and have been supporting all their initiatives wherever I can. I'm still holding my Splinterlands assets and will continue to hold them as it is generating me passive income. I have rented out my cards through Splex and it is generating a nice passive income in the form of DEC rewards. That's a good source of income for me. Earlier it used to be a great income but now things have slowed down but still not very bad.
I had set myself a goal to reach 100k SPS stake. As splinterlands is considering SPS as their primary token even though they have multiple other tokens, I thought I should have a decent stake in SPS. During the early days when SPS was around 1$, I purchased around 2000 SPS for 2k $. Those were the days when the price of Hive was also very good. Since then I have been accumulating my SPS in all possible ways.
I was supposed to purchase SPS last year and close off this goal but I wanted to take it slow because it is fun to see it progress little by little instead of purchasing SPS in one shot and completing the goal. I write about my weekly progress in my Hive Goals post and this week I thought I should write about my SPS goals separately because that would help me write an article exclusively about splinterlands and share it in social media challenge.
I have to admit that GLX tokens are the major contributor to increasing my SPS stake. So far all the GLX airdrop I have been receiving is helping me grow my SPS. I convert them to Hive and then purchase SPS from the market and power them up. This increased my SPS from 50k to almost 88k now. It is not like I don't want to hold GLX but I want to make use of the opportunity to earn more GLX by increasing my SPS and at the same time I can also purchase them back after the initial FOMO is over and the price of GLX drops. Once in a few days I claim my GLX and withdraw them to Hive Engine to convert them to SPS.
My SPS is growing by almost 1k every week which also confirms that I can reach my goal of 100k SPS in another 12 weeks if I'm not wrong. I still have not decided what I'm planning to do with my SPS after I have completed reaching my goal. Mostly I might focus on purchasing other game assets to increase my NFT positions inside the game. Let's see how it goes.
