Some of you may have noticed a new button that was recently added in the game header next to the DEC balance. This button will allow players to very quickly and easily purchase Dark Energy Crystals (DEC) from either the Steem Engine or Tron Watch markets.
One of the most important features of Dark Energy Crystals (and any crypto token really) is the ability to buy and sell them, but the process was much too cumbersome for the majority of users. You needed to first deposit STEEM into Steem Engine, place your trade on the market, and then withdraw the DEC back into the game. To top it off there weren't even any instructions on how to do any of this.
You can simply enter the amount of STEEM you want to spend, or the amount of DEC you want to purchase, and submit the transfer through either Steem Keychain or Steem Connect, and the service will take care of the rest!
Please note that this service is provided completely by Privex (for STEEM purchases) and they merely facilitate the purchasing of DEC on already existing markets. The service currency charges a 5% fee to cover the fees for depositing and withdrawing from Steem Engine, the cost of running the service, and price risk.
Similarly, if you want to purchase DEC with TRX, you can do so easily and instantly through the Tron Watch Market instant-buy feature, though there is still one extra step to transfer them into the game afterwards.
At no time will Splinterlands ever sell DEC and we maintain that they do not have any monetary value and have no expectation of monetary value or gains in the future.
Bringing Crypto to the Masses!
Ever since the beginning we have had a heavy focus on usability, which we feel is sorely missing from the majority of blockchain-based games and apps and which makes it difficult for the majority of people to get involved.
We want Splinterlands to be a place where anyone, with any level of skill and knowledge, can come, participate, and have fun while also taking part in the revolution that is cryptocurrency and blockchain technology.
This addition is a small step toward that goal, but we still have a lot of work to do. Keep an eye out for what we have coming in the near future, and thank you to all of you who are the early adopters who make all of this possible!
Stay tuned for more updates from the Splinterlands!
