Everyone talks about play to earn games now a days, but I have been in this part of the blockchain market for years now. In this write up ill attempt to pass along some of my knowledge, Perhaps lay some fears to rest concerning Splinterlands market prices. The more things change the more they stay the same 2022 just another year in the wide world of blockchain gaming.
I'm a bit relived to be honest that Splinterlands market is steadily deflating as appose to a bubble bursting with nothing to support it.
While yes I watched thousands of dollars vanish I lived this before in times of plenty prices get low simple economics really.
While the market is freaking out I'm busy blinging out my inventory, The bottom most prices shouldn't fall much further if at all the more expensive ones are what you should be wary of.
Always do your daily challenge makes it hurt a little less steadily adding to your portfolio for free what could be better.
You also get an idea of what cards will retain higher value based on their utility value.
Just look at this shit my inventory has over 350 card types in it no telling how many duplicates or higher level combo cards.
The market may be down but this is what you new users need weather you want to accept it or not admittingly you bought in at the peak you may have just lost money.
Why many stipulate not to risk this much in the first place I say play your daily challenge as its truly your highest profit margin.
The market is now where it was a year ago the difference is the number of players is drastically higher.
I have already made the mistake of selling like the NFTs would never increase in demand last year. Best thing you can do is Hodl & play the daily challenge its the better bet trust me.
In a subjective market you have to be willing to stand by a judgment call for quite some time months in some cases perhaps years.
My advice collect for your collections sake not for profit in the short term that only leads to ruin.
If you must flip the cards as soon as you get them shop around the game market isn't the only one.
The legendary cards are legendary for a reason they are hard to come by & the Gold legendary cards are not going to be found by intentionally looking for them call it a happy accident.
Ill hook it up in the airdrops today with Splinterlands gold cards, but I feel I repeat myself to much with Splinterlands though it is my favorite I have many other play to earn games to get to.
A new WAX play to earn rather quick in its development from launch to working game in a few months.
They recently added Spring NFTs which when owned produce their WAX alt crypto BGWATER which is used in game.
So why not do an unboxing
Great results the pack cost $10
It contained NFTs I can sell for $25, That's just resale you still generate BGWATER hourly for owning them.
No joke this game is advancing to quick for armatures I can tell they have real talent on board & probably a hefty budget. They already have a battle mode & all their NFTs when owned not staked, but just owned generate hourly crypto.
Its still affordable to buy in & ill airdrop some of these Beast garden NFTs today for lucky readers.
Not just for passively generating crypto either ill be giving away beasts to battle with in game.
Battles require the BGFOCUS crypto earned hourly from owning the Beast NFT in question.
Pay the 100 BGFOCUS to find a battle & fight the opponent with your team.
I will likely loose this one as the opponents are tough but in the event you win you earn BGALPHA.
Holy crap I won in the event you earn BGALPHA it to has a use case already via the in game auction.
Placing the winning bid grants you the NFT you bid on, A little clunky but I have seen much worse Beast Garden is actually great for how new the game is.
Guild Brawling with Gladiators
I know I said I go over Splinterlands to much but a thought occurred I never share my Guild Brawl Fights.
I'm guessing the average player may not see these in action all to often, Gladiators are like straight broken over powered.
Note how as the opponents monsters are wiped out each giving my gladiator a boost in stats due to blood lust.
While not unfair its hard to beat a gladiator without one which is why I spent so much money to get my guild upgraded sooner rather then latter.
While not yet monetized Brawls will get monetized with SPS I think at some point.
I for one will be ready.
Still get happy regardless of where the market is at legendary is legendary after all.
Two packs opened I'm happy with both that is enough for one day greed in the short term isn't the way more a marathon then a sprint.
Short term patience long term profits
December plain & simple is tough on the play to earn or NFT market as this market, like the consumer goods market is subjective in nature.
While my profits from my NFT portfolio are quite something I did not get here over night, a gradual process persistently slowly building my portfolio.
My intention is that by sharing my leads & airdropping a few corresponding NFTs is that you take that knowledge & build on it if possible.
Make no mistake this isn't a get rich quick thing its like a steady side hustle thing not an income, but something to add to one.
Take this colection for example I went months at a deficit on the Zombie coin miner until late September when I started to finally profit.
Now this colection (Zombie coin miner) sits at over $500 profit, but it looked like a loss for so long if I had given up it would have been.
I am saying all this because I want to show you have to commit to these play to earn games at least a little giving up half way ends badly.
Not trying to sour anyone's holiday & I hope you had a great holiday season just call it friendly advice.
Free Play to earns with great potential
On a much lighter note I have 4 separate games which are free to play & are crypto based play to earns.
First up an oldy but a goodie Rising Star, to be honest I use to dislike the sound effect of payment now it makes me happy I guess a year of exposure caused me to associate it with a positive.
Not a high earner at first, but a little persistence it helps supplement your other play to earns like Splinterlands.

Blockchain RPG a name I have repeated many times in my recent posts totally free to play WAX Play 2 Earn game.
I obsessed with this game for one reason its made with the Unity game engine, one other WAX game was made with a Unity Game engine Farming Tales.
Above 👆 Is the NFT colection for Farming Tales total Sale volume over $36,000,000 USD worth of total secondary market sale volume P2P (Peer 2 Peer).
This is the price stats for the SEST Token from Farming Tales, notice how you could trade it for 4 WAX a piece at one point.
Though Blockchain RPG is made by a different company or group the Game engine alone (Unity) being the same is reason enough for me to Stock up on everything I can from this play to earn Crypto & NFTs both.
Unlike Farming Tales you can play Blockchain RPG for free so get in now & HODL is all I can say, I could be wrong. However this game is barely getting started & I'm profiting.
Last up a Blast from the futuristic past Alien Ships
What started out as a simple play to earn with one game type & a single NFT in the colection has since then exploded into an NFT colection & play to earn with nearly everything.
Now with their rental ship option completely free to play as well, Truly when they first started I never could have foreseen how well this play to earn would be polished at this point.
Want to try it out yourself please consider using my referral link above 👆.
Not much for games more an investor we got options there as well Factories & Mines can be found here👇.
Now these Mine NFTs generate Ship NFTs for the owner every 72 hours decent set it & forget it method for NFT profits. The big money however would be with this 👇.
Producing a meteor NFT every 24 hours
A Meteor NFT can be burned for the WAX backing it so basically they made a WAX mining NFT.
Not a whole lot with play to earn games shocks me but a WAX backed NFT mining system just wow.
For new users WAX CPU usage can be a problem CAIT has a way to rent CPU for that day as appose to staking its 10x more cost effective just a one time deal a 24 hour rental.
Other then that CAIT also automatically qualifies your account for airdrops when you register a single time via wallet approval.
Also offering a faucet & cash back on WAX NFT purchases Cait really has so much for new users.
My referral is above for CAIT please consider using it to start using Cait. Cait also helps musicians tokenize their work for free
on WAX & does many of the WAX NFT collections DeFi integration.
Last but certainly not least Roller coin another play to earn far superior to when I last posted about it.
For starters their miner rigs may now be built with parts earned randomly by playing the game. You may also upgrade existing mining Rigs with the aforementioned parts.
Daily missions also make free Mining rigs realistically possible With a in game market coming soon Roller coin has never been more profitable.
So If market flux has you down & your grasping at straws I get it these are good straws to grasp, hang in there it gets easier.
An unboxing Moon mining
$10 pack resulted in
Total fail lost everything this is the most expensive
The moon mining WAX NFT colection big ambitions not much to back them up yet I'm afraid. I will keep an eye on them but I think collections like this may fall to the wayside in the near future.
WEED & LIST
Weedcash & Hivelist seems like I mention these projects regularly lately, but for a good reason.
Both are rather impressive to potential investors for 2 reasons, keep in mind this isn't intended as financial advice I'm not nor have I ever claimed to be a financial advisor.
Always do your own research one reason why I do these write ups to inform others about projects & give them the projects site to do their own research.
Back to the topic at hand HiveList & Weedcash why they are standing out on HIVE like never before.
First off I have to mention these reward Pools with insane APR for the next 1,700 + days on both rewards payouts.
Its refreshing to find liquidity pools with rewards paying out longer then I expect the world to last. World ending in a few years aside both LIST & WEED are two parts of my portfolio I try to HODL no matter what.
The current prices seem relatively stable & with these liquidity pool rewards paying so well its a great way to capitalize on my HODL obsession.
Both also have a fantastic NFT store Hivelist is honestly the best NFT store on HIVE outside Splinterlands.
There is also a multi blockchain version of Hivelist off HIVE for MATIC & BSC wallets.
Finally Hivelist has NFT Galleries routed through its store
Weedcash a little less advanced but it has an extremely loyal user base so WEED tends to remain rather stable for a price point.
Oh yeah bonus points I produce NFTs for Weedcash NFT market as I am whitelisted the 1st one ever as a matter of fact.
What I'm trying to say here is both of these projects are fantastic for what they offer alone their liquidity pools just add so much to the investment angle.
Not as much as I would like, but I'm working at it now still for $40 that's a nice daily payout.
You smoke weed now & again monetize that shit post about it on Weedcash while your there.
Another play to earn game I have covered before becoming a really profitable P2E game thanks to recent updates.
Not only have the prices dropped on the Hero NFTs required to play, but they just added a weapon NFT production option. This simultaneously gives a use case to BAM their crypto & a new earning mechanism for players.
So basically around $10 can get you making about 0.5 BAM per click not great & you have to stake BAM on your heroes to rank up. Honestly not bad though for profiting once you lay the ground work.
This Bow NFT cost me 45 BAM to produce the resale price is just under $14 & 45 BAM costs just over $4 at current market price.
Once you make 2 of the same weapon combine them together to upgrade the NFTs rarity.
You could then sell it for even greater profits.
Granted the weapon market may fall due to how easily they are now produced but this will send BAN prices up so equipping better weapons to even common heroes drastically increases game payout.

New Blog on the Blockchain
Specifically the HIVE blockchain has a new blog joining its ranks VYB (Verify Your Brain) kind of reminds me of Proof Of Brain before people got obsessed with downvoting posts.
I prefer to let the site speak for itself barely a week old & actions speak louder then words so lets hope they make their presence well known.
I got some of these VYB airdropped to me which is a great first start in my book as staking is usually an issue for new coins on HIVE.
My short term goal is a rounded thousand VYB Staked as I start posting here as well hopefully you like NFT insight / airdrops because that's all me.
Honestly I have thoughts regarding HIVE based NFT lines connected to airdropped Crypto, if VYB gets a NFT Market who knows maybe we can hash something out.
Until then glad to have you in the HIVE I'm sure ill be a regular on VYB @vyb.vyb welcome aboard & thanks for the airdrop.
PLN weird idea or creative innovation?
I know this post is crazy long already & I dont know where to start with PLN but I would check in to it if I where you.
Above is their white paper for the Nectar Queen system based upon a play to earn gamers colection & its revenue I think its a little complex so I may be over simplifying.
I may be wrong but this is similar to the topic I brought up a while ago investing in pro play to earn gamers.
I hit diamond most seasons now a days & I cant hold a candle to these stats gamer recognize game.
This liquidity pool really caught my attention just look at this shit its insane, it appears they have began setting up follow up liquidity pools as well.
Like most sketchy investments high risk has the potential for high reward or total loss please read the white paper & dont invest more then you can afford to loose please.
Again the white paper link👆 do your own research😠!!
May be misinterpreting this but what I gleamed from this is basically you somewhat invest in this project based around revenue from a pro Splinterlands players performance.
Though done in a rudimentarily fashion this has striking similarities to this section from the SPS white paper.
I dont believe their officially affiliated with Splinterlands just a pro player, however this is where the market seems to be headed. MLG blockchain gaming.
Putting endorsements in the hands of the public endorsing their favorite players & getting a % of revenue based on investment into the player group or project.
Again strictly an observation & my own opinion on the situation I could be wrong I'm human it happens.
In summation check out PLN & the account @nectar-queen
