Splinterlands is happy to announce that we're now accepting Electroneum (ETN) as a payment method in the game. Players can spend their ETN tokens to purchase Credits in Splinterlands which can then be used to buy card packs and potions in the in-game shop as well as to buy cards from other players on the market.
From the electroneum.com website:
Electroneum is a unique, award-winning project focused on empowering a greater number of people by providing them with the tools they need to earn a living from the digital economy.
The digital economy (selling digital services online) has grown to be a multi-trillion-dollar industry. There are hundreds of online platforms that allow people to enter this market, however, they all rely on the traditional banking infrastructure. AnyTask.com (powered by Electroneum) is the first freelance platform that provides access to the global digital economy for the world’s unbanked. AnyTask sellers do not need a bank account, nor do they pay seller fees.
We see a lot of similarities between Splinterlands and Electroneum as Splinterlands also allows people from anywhere around the world to earn through the game with no bank account required. In particular, we are excited to see growth in the Splinterlands card rental market (powered by peakmonsters.com) which allows players to trustlessly rent cards from other players and start earning rewards in the game for a fraction of the cost of buying cards directly.
The Electroneum community boasts over 4,000,000 registered users and Spliterlands looks forward to welcoming them to the game and showing them how much fun earning from the digital economy can be!
