Splinterlands has created a bridge between the Hive and the Wax blockchain, now allowing players to trade their NFTs on three different blockchains. The trading card game is native to the Hive blockchain, but the developers have created ways to trade items on both Ethereum and now also Wax.
Trading on Ethereum has been possible for a couple of months already, and they have now made a bridge to the Wax blockchain. The developers of Splinterlands see this technological marvel as a way to combine the communities of Splinterlands and Wax. In addition they hope that more partnerships will happen.
Atomic Hub is the premier trading platform on Wax, responsible for millions of transactions per week according to data from DappRadar. In recent weeks games like Alien Worlds, R-Planet and Kolobok Adventures have been merging NFT collecting with gameplay elements, attracting a couple of thousand players per day.
How to send NFTs to Wax?
At the moment Splinterlands players can transfer cards, pack tokens and land claim tokens to the Wax blockchain. Players first need to link their Wax account to the Splinterlands account, once this connection has been created they can send assets over with a simple click.
Sending them back from Wax to the Hive blockchain is a bit more complicated. This requires users to send items to “splintrlands” and add their Hive blockchain account name in the memo. Notice that the account name misses an ‘e’.
What is Splinterlands?
Splinterlands is a trading card game that started on the Steem blockchain as Steemmonsters. However, over time the project changed names. Now gamers can play the game on desktop and mobile devices, mainly using the Hive blockchain. Thanks to an intelligent functionality, cards and tokens can also be traded on the Ethereum blockchain.
Splinterlands allows anybody to play and earn cards and other resources. Players need to create a set of cards to defeat their opponent. Cards come in different rarities with seven different stats. In addition these cards have abilities and come from seven factions. The way cards work together is dependent on all these different attributes.
Players earn cards by winning matches. They can combine cards to gain levels. After that you can sell cards on the open marketplace for cryptocurrencies, or lease them to other players. The most rare cards are wanted assets, especially when there are tournaments.
