Splinterlands, a play-to-earn blockchain game that uses digital trading cards, hit an all-time high of 2.32 million rentals a day on April 15, Crypto Advisor learned from a press release.
The increasing popularity of card rentals is no accident
The play-to-earn gaming platform has seen the popularity of card rentals skyrocket. Renting cards allows players to use their cards of choice without major costs, while owners can make extra money from lending them.
Splinterlands was among the pioneers of the launch of NFT rental markets in July last year. These markets give players the option to play and earn without buying cards. This makes games more accessible because many cards can be rented for a negligible amount.
Apart from card rentals, exciting features on Splinterlands include land, skins, titles, packs, and totems. The platform also has plans to introduce validator nodes. Their goal is a billion dollars’ burn with rewards.
Jesse “Aggroed” Reich, the CEO of Splinterlands, commented the impressive milestone:
We recently shared that we hit 2 billion games played, and now we’re here, reaching another remarkable milestone in the history of NFT rentals. We look forward to achieving more of these in the future.
The most popular blockchain game
Currently, Splinterlands ranks as the most-played blockchain game on Dappradar, which hundreds of thousands play every day.
Aly Madhavji, Managing Partner of Blockchain Founders Fund, said:
Splinterlands has delivered many industry innovations in the blockchain gaming space and continues to deliver the best perks to its players. This new achievement is a significant milestone in transforming the gaming industry.
Splinterlands is a play-to-earn blockchain game with NFT cards, which have a limited supply. Each player owns NFT cards that they can use on the battleground. Players of the game earn huge rewards from different play-to-earn activities. More than 2 billion games have been played since Splinterlands was created.
