Blockchain Game Splinterlands hits 10 M packs of Chaos Legion Series cards sold
The play-to-earn (P2E) blockchain video game Splinterlands revealed it sold more than 10 million packs from their fantasy-themed battle game’s Chaos Legion series as of October 6.
Splinterlands is a game that uses cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology to enhance online collectible card tournaments. To start playing the game, new users are required to obtain a ‘Summoner’s Spellbook’ which can be obtained and sold via secondary markets along with other Splinterlands cards or NFTs.
The collection launched on January 17, 2022, and there were only 15,000,000 packs minted. The Splinterlands project says that the cards’ limited availability after the 10 million sold, marks the cards’ ‘homestretch’, referring to the amount left of the cards.
Jesse Reich, Splinterlands co-founder and CEO, expressed his gratitude for the Chao Legion sales and growing community surrounding the Splinterlands GameFi platform.
‘The successes are coming like a flood these days, and we are thrilled,' he said. 'Our community is phenomenal and we are so grateful for their loyalty and enthusiasm, which is an ongoing inspiration to our team to keep co-creating this remarkable game with them. We can't wait to expand more into the mainstream gaming industry and show the world what Web 3.0 is all about,’ he said.
The news follows Splinterlands partnership with Warner Music Group (WMG) and the Major League Soccer Players Association (MLSPA). As the company continues to grow amid the crypto bear market, it has its sights set on new expansions and games releases slated for 2023.
