Splinterlands Stats | October 2021 | Games, Players, DEC and Price
Splinterlands is in a full bull mode for a few months now. New players continue to sign in and the presale for the Chaos Legion packs is happening. A lot more things to come in the next months to year.
Let’s take a look at the numbers, how is the game doing?
One of the main things that is driving the Splinterlands exploding growth is the SPS token, but also the overall trend in NFT gaming. Building for three years also helps 😊. The game keeps innovating and introducing new features and modules.
The following topics will be covered:
- Number of games played
- Number of active daily players
- Number of active monthly players
- New accounts created by Splinterlands
- DEC supply
- SPS price
Number Of Battles Played
Here is the chart of the daily numbers of games played for the period.
The growth in the numbers of battles is so big that the numbers before are almost not visible!
Starting from August the numbers of battles per day went up from 100k to more than 10M in October. That is a 100x increase in the number of battles.
The growth has been constant for a three months in a row and just now we are starting to see some flattening out of the numbers of battles. There are bots here for sure, but the overall growth is still evident.
Note on the numbers: Until August 11, 2021, the numbers for the battles are from the data on the blockchain. After that Splinterlands have made changes on the way how they store data, and the numbers are from the Splinterlands API.
Number Of Active Players
This is one of the most important metrics for every dApp, how many active users have there are. Here is a data for daily active users [DAU] and monthly active users as well [MAU]
A similar chart as for the numbers of battles. Up until July 2021, Splinterlands had somewhere between 5k to 7k daily players. Then these numbers exploded and just keeps going up to a half a million daily players in the recent days.
With these numbers of players Splinterlands is entering into the big boy’s league now. One million DAUs here we come.
The note for the data from the battles applies here as well. In the last months the numbers for DAUs are from the Splinterlands API, not the blockchain.
New Accounts Created by Splinterlands
Here are the new Hive accounts created by Splinterlands.
In the past Splinterlands was creating somewhere between 500 to 1500 new accounts per month. In the last two months there is more than 200k accounts created per month. I’m amazed by the new numbers of accounts created in one month.
Starting from July a total of 660k accounts were created by Splinterlands. This is probably a period with the most Hive accounts created in the history of the blockchain.
Another interesting metric is DEC supply. DEC is burned when buying mini edition cards, potions, orbs, skins, guilds upgrade, etc. The DICE edition was exclusive bought with DEC that is burnt. That edition is sold out now.
On the other side the higher the price of DEC is the more is printed.
Here is the chart for the DEC burned vs created in 2021.
Note the chart is on a logarithmic scale.
We can notice that in July and August there was an increase in the amount of DEC burned (yellowish line) but then a drop. After August 18th, there is much less DEC burned, and for the first time in years there is days with zero DEC burned. This is most likely because the DICE edition is sold out and that was the main sink for DEC.
On the other side the price od DEC remained high, and the printing rate of DEC is at all time high.
Here how this has affected the supply of DEC in 2021.
At the start of the year DEC had around 600M in supply and it remained at those levels until July. Then the supply started decreasing (aggressive DICE buying) and after DICE was sold out the DEC inflation kept growing. At the moment there is 1.4B DEC in circulation, meaning that the supply has already more than doubled in this year. However the growth has been massive as well and the DEC price is still x10 then the peg.
At the end the price for the main token SPS.
SPS has been around for more than three months now. At start the price spiked to almost 1$ and then it stabilized itself to around 0.4$ and increased to dollar again before the presale and now it is around 0.6$. Staked SPS is required for vouchers for buying into the CL presale. Others use cases for SPS to follow.
All the best
