Ok guys, this is it! We're getting down to the wire. We started with 300,000 alphas and we sold out of those. The last 56k packs of alphas sold out in 3 days. The final day had 26k packs sold.
We started with 900,000 betas and we're about to sell out of these too!
We have the last
50k 47k up for sale and then literally every single alpha and beta card won't ever get reprinted. Poof... like a ghost. The only place people will be able to get them will be the owners on the market! Over time they'll be fewer and fewer of these cards too as people combine them, dust them, or simply lose their keys.
Initially the cards are inflationary because we sell packs, and deflationary because of the combining mechanic to level. After cards packs are no longer available they stop being inflationary and become solely deflationary. They aren't just deflationary though, they are hyperdeflationary because rather than staying constant in supply they decrease over time. What do you think a decreasing supply will do as we add more players?

All Time High Player Base!!!
We keep a close eye on marketcap, and also keep a close eye on the number of players! We see peak activity at the end of seasons. We hit a new milestone at the end of this last season. We had a new all time high for number of accounts playing!
2,860! Ask yourself... does that seem like a lot of gamers or just a few gamers? Does this game have room for expansion? Are there new markets and new players to sell cards to or has it reached max potential?
It's not just the players though. We have more accounts trading the cards the cards than ever! We just recorded our highest total accounts interacting with the game EVER!
3,506 accounts are buying selling, trading, and playing!
Right, but who cares about accounts, those can be faked, what about volume?
Yep... Just logged in the most steem volume ever recorded in a month for us too. And don't just give me some "Steem is cheap" line. That helps as much as it hurts too (more volume of steem but reduced sales).
Splinterlands is killing it!
We're in a protracted bear market for alt coins that's eaten the 90%+ marketcap of nearly all of the altcoins. This makes the great depression look like a little punk. We're growing during this time! When the market turns around what do you think will happen to this game and to these cards? Act accordingly, get some cards, play some games, earn some loot, and DON'T MISS THE BUS!!!
