My first investments up 27% || Ep. #9 || Splinterlands

By mercurial9 | mercurial9 | 31 Jul 2020


I love it when a game implements and adopts a real-world auction house. In my younger years, I lost many days and weeks trading on FIFA Ultimate team to acquire the best cards and team. There is a huge thrill in finding the right niche in the market, making it your own and profiting from that knowledge.

Over the past few weeks, I have been learning and studying the Splinterlands market to purchase a few cards for investments. The following card categories are what I choose to focus on:

  • Summoners
  • Neutral monsters
  • Reward monsters with a %printed between 60 – 85%

All the cards were bought with DEC currency that I had won in playing the game or from cards which I received (from daily quests rewards) and sold on the market. I purchased a total of 19 cards across the card categories I mentioned above:


These cards were purchased over the past week. Based on current market prices, my investments are up 27%.


Please don't take this advice without doing your own research and never spend more than you can afford to lose. Many things in the future will affect both positively and negatively on the price of these cards that I can't predict. This is not financial advice.

The season is ending today and albeit I didn’t reach the ultimate goal I had of reaching Diamond III, I am still pleased with my 2nd season in playing Splinterlands:

  • Battles: 404
  • Wins: 194
  • Longest streak: 13 (new personal best)
  • Highest league: Gold I

This season has been tough and it shows in my win rate ratio (% 48%). Next seasons goal is to learn about the different rulesets and figuring out strategies of how to play with them.
