Since the introduction of DEC token, it has enriched the Splinterlands in many different ways. The token has so much use cases it is hard to number them all and not forget something. Buy orbs, potions, skins, sell it on exchange, and from recently buy votes for your Steem Monsters posts.
Each card holds a certaing amount of DEC. The player can burn the card and release the DEC providing instant liquidity in the game. If you are in a hurry no need to wait for someone to buy your card. Just burn it and voila DEC.
I have done a small research on how much DEC each card contains and the result is show in the table below.
DEC per Card - Regular Foil
DEC per Card - Gold Foil
These are values for a single card.
With a DEC value of 0.001$ in the moment you can easily find the minimum value of each card.
Some ratios a clearly visible from the tables above.
Rare cards have x4 DEC then common. Epic x5 then rare and legendary also x5 then epic. Legendary to common ratio 1:1000.
Alpha/Promo card are x2 compared to Beta and Reward.
Gold cards are x50!
Also, I have been informed in the discord chat that a maxed card has 5% bonus DEC.
So, yea, quite a big difference in the value of the cards in DEC. Ranging from 15 to 150000.
But the interesting thing here is that DEC connect all the cards and provides a minimum buying price for each of them. I remember before DEC there was some of the reward cards that were undervalued, especially the rare, epic and legendary cards. Now the price of all of them has went up.
All the best
