Started from scratch and earned a Gold Foil Legendary in Splinterlands!
21st February, 2020
I made my first "From Scratch to GFL" series post on steempeak.
My goal was to see how long would it take for me to earn myself a gold foil legendary in Splinterlands starting from a scratch account
The account only had two lvl 2 summoners delegated to it
These are the rules i set for myself
A bit questionable rules, but What the heck :D
In my first post I also stated that the cheapest GFL at the time was The Scale Doctor at $39.75
Mid way trough the grind
Nothing really interesting happened
On my 40th post I had a collection value of $12 + 1000 DEC sitting on the account.
The cheapest legendary still being around $45 at that time.
Also congratulations to the Alpha Giveaway winner :)
First signs of GFL

pretty much Year and a half later on post #66 my collection value reached the same value as the cheapest current GFL on the market.
My Collection value with that post was at $73.81 and the cheapest GFL on the market at that time was $72
I even said in that post that the currenct Cards marketcap was around $22 mil at that time.

I posted my #79 th post labelled "The end is near"
In that post I had Total account value of over $900 and the cheapest GFL being under $300
Where I am now
As of writing this section I haven't bought the GFL yet.
this is what the account looks like
DEC Value: $36.24
SPS Value: $45.65
And the cheapest GFL is only $227
Buying the GFL
21st September, 2021
It was really hard to sell some of my hard earned cards, but I am happy with the outcome.
$227.7 I payed for my GFL which is Wayyyy more than I thought I would have to pay when I started this series :D
Thank you all!

This is to set thumbnail on Peakd, Wanted to make a simple childish thumbnail, but it didn't turn out that great. I am not the greatest at making thumbnails xD
