Splinterlands Challenge of the Week!

9 Feb 2021 3 minute read 0 comments RealSociology

This week's Splinterlands Challenge of the Week was to showcase the Defender of the Truth from the Life Splinter. Unfortunately I only have this card levelled up to L3 where it just can't compete with my other cards - even if I did have this up L6 I...

At time of writing ARK is ranked 177th on CoinMarketCap with a value of $53M ($0.41 and a supply of 130M). (Of course by the time this publishes these rankings may well have changed!). What is 'ARK'? (ark.io) It's a unique delegated proof of stake...

Splinterlands Challenge of the Week: Elven Defender

31 Jan 2021 2 minute read 1 comment RealSociology

This week's Splinterlands Challenge of the Week was to showcase the neutral Elven Defender. The Enchanted Defender is a bizarre, niche use card - low mana, good shields but very low health, slow and with a mediocre attack but thorns, so all in all a...

NRG - Worth more than Hive?

19 Jan 2021 3 minute read 2 comments RealSociology

17 Jan 2021 2 minute read 2 comments RealSociology

This week's Splinterlands Challenge of the Week is to showcase the exploding dwarf. Well I've failed to find a suitable opportunity to do this, as the Dwarf is just too specialist - you need equaliser or a pro-melee rule set and I just haven't been g...

You've no doubt heard that Donald Trump has been banned from FaceBook and Twitter - if you try to find his Twitter account now, all you see is this: And at the same time the pro free speech app Parler, favoured by alt-right Trump followers, has been...
