It's a new year and a month has already passed. That means it is time to review the earnings from playing Splinterlands.
It is hard to track rewards across months as the value of cards can make a significant difference. Also, many cards sell for more than their DEC crush value so simply tracking the DEC value of the cards received wouldn't make much sense. With that said, I will be making my tracking and comparisons based on the following categories: Ranked-battles, Quest rewards, and Ranked Season rewards.
Ranked Battle Rewards
These are the rewards you get from battling other players in a ranked-battle. You can think of it as the reward for providing liquidity in the battle system. In January, I made 2,778.6 DEC from battles.
These are the rewards from completing the daily quest. I made a total of 2,062 DEC from completing quests in January.
Season Ending Rewards
At the end of the season, you're rewarded with a certain number of loot chests depending on which league you end up reaching. I finished in Gold III, which is my maximum given the DEC value of my cards. My season rewards for January came up to 980 DEC.
Total rewards earned for the month of December came up to 5,820.6 DEC. At $0.0007 per DEC, that works out to about $4.07. Another way of looking at it is that earn a 5.8% monthly return on the value of my cards and that works out to a 69.6% APR. Not too bad at all, in my opinion.
