This was posted by mistake on this account. To late to delete it now. Sorry :)

Splinterlands continues to march one after the few updates in August like the new Dice cards edition! Let’s see how the numbers for the game are.


All the data presented is collected from the Hive Blockchain.
The following topics will be covered:

  • Number of games played
  • Number of active players
  • New Players
  • New Accounts created by Splinterlands
  • DEC burned
  • DEC Price
  • Most active players

Number of games played

Here is the chart of the daily numbers of games played for the last year.


The last few months there were big spikes in the number of games played, especially at the season end. Most likely bots. In September there is some pull back in this numbers, maybe because of the new ranking system, not sure.

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]


The number of daily active users is growing at a steady rate as we can see. In May 2019 there were just above 1000 daily active users and in the previous months this number is more than a 2500. Some pull back in the numbers here as well, the same as for the number of games.

Next, the chart on the monthly active players.


The MAU numbers usually paint a better overall picture than the DAU.

Here we can see a consistent trend of more than 5k players in the last months.

Unique Players

Above we have seen the number of active players. Here is the chart on unique players that have played at least one game.


A nice and steady growth here. Note that this is data from May 2019, previous unique players are not taken into consideration. Starting with around 2k and growing all the way to more than 14k unique players in September 2020.

The monthly chart for new unique players looks like this.


A 600 new accounts playing for the first time in September 2020. These are new accounts that become active.

Here are the new Hive accounts created by Splinterlands.


Around 1300 new Hive accounts were created by Splinterlands in September 2020. A drop from the record high in June.

If we plot the two charts from above, new unique players VS accounts created we got this.


In June 2019 the number of new players trying the game is actually bigger than the accounts created by Splinterlands. This means at the time the new players were coming from the accounts that already existed. In the last months, the number of new accounts created by Splinterlands is bigger that the new unique players, meaning they are getting players outside the already existing ones on the blockchain.

DEC burned

Another interesting metric is DEC burned. DEC is burned when buying potions, orbs, skins and guilds upgrade.
The new DICE edition is exclusive bought with DEC as well and it is burnt.

Here is the chart for the all time DEC burned vs created.


Note the chart is on a logarithmic scale.

We can notice a big spike in August when the DICE edition came out. In September the numbers are back down to few millions per day or sometimes bellow one million.

DEC Price

What about the DEC price?
Here is the chart on all time DEC price in dollars [$].


The chart for September 2020, for better visibility.


Trading between 0.0005$ and 0.0008$.

On October 2nd DEC was listed on Uniswap with LPs incentives and the price went up to 0.0009$

All the best

Great stats overview, thank you!



Do you have any idea that how much DEC is exactly circulating and how much is burned till now.

The numbers for burned in total is around 462M.
At the same time around 500M was rewarded to players. But, there is also DEC created from cards burn. Approximately the same as the rewards.

These are all very rough estimation. Dont take them for serious. I dont have the exact numbers, because I track on chain data only, not in game.

Thanks. Even rough estimates are good for me.
