Splinterlands, currently ranked as the top blockchain game according to Dappradar, said in a recent press release it hit 2.32 million daily rentals on April 15.
The concept of Splinterlands is simple: it is an NFT trading card game that lets users own their cards and other game assets. It is powered by the HIVE blockchain and gamers use their cards to battle for rewards, hold them as collectibles, and trade with each other, among other features.
The rental concept
Splinterlands launched in mid-2021 a concept in which users can rent or lend their digital cards directly through its website on a daily basis.
This not only allows users to save money by renting cards but also offers gamers the ability to generate revenue through the lending process.
According to Splinterland’s press release, many digital cards can be rented for a fraction of a penny. According to a report on Fool.com, one user managed to turn $10 into $17,000 via exchanging and renting cards.
CEO: ‘another remarkable milestone’
Commenting on the 2.32 million daily rental milestone, Splinterlands CEO Jesse “Aggroed” Reich commented:
“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.”
Blockchain Founders Fund Managing Partner Aly Madhavji also commented and stated:
“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.”Dappradar
