What are the current use cases of SPS token?

Splintershards (SPS) tokens will be required to be staked in order to 

  • Earn SPS staking rewards
  • Participate in governance
  • Purchase in game assets such as card packs
  • Participate in validator nodes
  • Participate in special offers, promotions, and bonuses available to SPS holders

Tokens may be held and staked either in a BSC wallet address or in a Splinterlands game account. The only difference between the two is that only tokens staked in a BSC wallet address will be able to participate in governance votes relating to the DAO.


Tokens staked in either place are able to participate in governance votes related to the game and are also able to earn rewards from the SPS Staking Rewards pool.

Governance (Live)

Each staked SPS token will be worth one vote, so the more SPS tokens a player has staked, the more they will be able to influence the results of the votes. Furthermore, anyone will be able to submit a governance proposal for voting provided that they pay a fee in SPS tokens which will be burned.

Various aspects of the game will be directly coded into the governance system over time so that they will automatically be updated when/if a governance proposal is approved by the SPS stakeholders, without requiring any intervention from the Splinterlands team.

Players may submit governance proposals for changes that will be addedto the governance system in Q1, 2022, and if they are approved with a significant amount of SPS stake then the Splinterlands team will seriously consider implementing the requested changes.

For example, SPS holders will be able to propose and vote on:

  • Splinterlands-sponsored tournament schedule, settings, and prizes
  • Card balance updates
  • Quest, season, and leaderboard rewards
  • Battle settings (time limits, mana cap, rulesets, inactive splinters, etc.)
  • DEC inflation pools
  • Influencing the Foundation Treasury (burning tokens, providing liquitidy to an Automated Market Maker (AMM) pool, purchasing SPS tokens, etc)

Staking Rewards (Live)
In addition to governance voting rights, SPS tokens can be used for unlocking staking rewards within the Splinterlands game. Once staked, SPS tokens are subject to an unstaking period of 4 weeks. Once unstaking of tokens has been initiated, they will be released into the liquid supply at a rate of 1/4 per week for 4 weeks.

Additionally, staked SPS tokens can be staked on a particular player which allow both the SPS holder and the player to earn rewards based on the player’s performance. More details at https://sps.splinterlands.com/rewards/ranked-battles

Key Insights

  • According to DappRadar, Splinterlands is ranked in the top 3 games in terms of number of users in the past 30 days since September 2021. The Splinterlands game is free for users, however, users have to pay USD $10 for the Summoner’s Spellbook (Starter Pack) upgrade is required to earn rewards and access all functionalities of Splinterlands.
  • 60% of the total token supply will go towards rewarding players, SPS holders, liquidity providers, and oracles. These tokens will be released on a fixed schedule and go into separate pools for the various different areas to be rewarded.
  • Airdrop: 400M SPS tokens, or 13.33% of the total token supply, will be airdropped to players based upon the amount and type of Splinterlands assets held in their account. The goal is to encourage players to accumulate and hold Splinterlands assets over a longer period rather than having a big rush up until the snapshot followed by a dump shortly afterwards. SPS tokens will be airdropped to asset holders on a daily basis over a 12 month period.

  • Oracle Rewards: The Ethereum blockchain was the first choice for the governance token contracts; however, in light of the high gas fees it would greatly limit what can be done with the governance token and the number of people able to participate. As a result, the Binance Smart Chain was chosen due to the popularity, low transaction fees and large user base. All interactions of the SPS tokens will be handled via an oracle system. Below the illustration represents how users or other entities elected by the SPS token holders are responsible for running software that relay game transactions in which they will be rewarded SPS tokens for doing so properly.

Key Risk Considerations:

  • SPS is the governance token that is earned within the Splinterlands game. Lately, there has been an influx of play-to-earn games being released. This has increased the competition amongst the blockchain games in competing for adoption and users across the board. With many other games adopting a similar concept of that of SPS, there is high competition risk and therefore it is crucial for Splinterlands to keep innovating creative ways to incentivise and retain users and community.
  • In addition to focusing on generating mass user adoption, the team has to ensure that the SPS staking and other reward bonuses remain attractive for old and new users.
  • The price of SPS tokens are also subject to high volatility as users’ preferences for games could change with trend, the project could fail to keep up with users’ demands and requirements, and the tokens are subject to speculative risks from market participants.
