Playing to Earn with Splinterlands

By Chris Roberts | Splinterlands | 14 Jul 2021

Everyone who is familiar with Splinterlands knows that it's a play-to-earn game. But not everyone knows just how easy it can be to earn while playing Splinterlands. 

Thanks to a powerful recent update that allows Splinterlands cards to be rented p2p on a daily basis, anyone can gain control of a winning Splinterlands deck in a hurry, using it to get the full play-to-earn experience of this incredible strategic masterpiece of a card game.

Splinterlands Rental System Announcement


Since the very beginning of Splinterlands, there have always been players who have taken a strong collector's approach to the game. Knowing about the Hive blockchain's functionality that allows delegation of authority, those players have piled massive collections of cards, much larger than are needed for the success of a single playing account. Now that a system of easy rentals has been implemented, the collector's time has come, and it's great news for everyone.

For the Collector


Using the on-site rentals interface, each collector can simply select the amount of DEC per day they would like to earn for their extra cards. It takes less than a minute to list a card on the Splinterlands rental market, and there is no cost for listing. 

Those looking to rent out extensive collections can use the time-saving bulk listing tools available at Using these tools, even the largest Splinterlands collections can be listed for rent in the course of just a couple hours or less.

Once the collector's listings start getting picked up, daily DEC will begin being automatically deposited into the owner's account. It's that simple. The owner maintains ownership of their cards and earns passively for allowing other players to use them in gameplay. This is a legitimate form of passive income.

For the New Player


This new rental system creates a plethora of opportunities for new players, deepening the strategy and allowing lower spenders to reach any League or ranking. Once players have purchased the $10 Summoner's Spellbook upgrade, they can earn daily rewards, season rewards, tournament prizes and more.

Thanks to rentals, a new player can spend absurdly small amounts of money to rent individual cards on their own terms. If they want, they can rent cards on a daily basis to help them complete each day's quest. If they want to rent for a season, they can simply sync up the terms of their rentals with the season countdown timer. Players that were previously unable to reach certain Leagues because of the limitations of their collection power are now able to use rentals to fly as high as their skills allow.

Go take a look at the current rental market and see for yourself the potential of this cooperative play-to-earn style. No other game in the industry has created a system capable of these things.


Our new rental system is majorly ahead of the curve in blockchain gaming, our upcoming governance token has more layers of utility and player empowerment than any other in the space, and our land expansion will grant our players the exclusive ability to create their own in-game item and spell NFTs.

If you're not yet taking advantage of the beautiful play-to-earn mechanics of Splinterlands, there is absolutely no better time to get started. It may be a bit too late to get your hands on huge collections of the highest valued out-of-print cards, but you can start playing to earn today for minimal expense. You're still early, and many of today's Reward cards will be tomorrow's super-rare treasures.
