One of the top blockchain-based NFT trading card games has dramatically increased in size thanks to a sale of virtual land plots. ‘Splinterlands’ shifted no less than 150,000 plots, each bought for a price of $20. The expansion, first announced last year, used three types of tradable claims tokens — plot claim, tract and region.
Following on from the sale, ‘Splinterlands’ has also confirmed its own governance token, Splintershards (SPS), is now just around the corner. These next additions to the platform use Binance Smart Chain, and mean players and collectors can access better rewards and vote on actions within the playable ecosystem. According to Zycrypto, 6.6% of these will be used in a private token sale. Meanwhile, 13% will go to rewarding players that have amassed NFT assets in the game.
In the last 12 months, the team behind this popular NFT trading game have made some significant steps into the world of virtual land plots. Pre-sales for the latest land expansion began in November 2020, when 30,000 plot claims sold in under 30 seconds. Owners of the tradable tokens can redeem these in exchange for deeds at a later date.
‘Splinterlands’ has also confirmed many more big changes to come. Next month will see an airdrop for the community, alongside the introduction of cross-blockchain bridges. At some point in Quarter 3, incentives, battling, tournament, staking and brawl modes will be introduced. In Quarter Four, there will be a governance land expansion. BSC Contracts, Oracles, and DAO are all planned for 2022.
Virtual land plots are becoming commonplace
In the past we have reported extensively on virtual land plots and NFT real estate opportunities. During the last week of May, CryptoPunks alone brought in $1,756,120 from sales of this kind. Meanwhile, MyMetaverse also made NFTEvening headlines with its land sale inside the Minecraft universe.
