As an onlooker and participant of both the first and second Splinterlands Kickstarters I think its safe to say that both became massive successes.
Let's take a look at some brief but important stats:
|Splinterlands||Kickstarter One||KickStarter Two|
|End Date||October 2018||November 2019|
While its too late to particiate in either of these Kickstarters there's still plenty of time to pre-order some UNTAMED booster packs. You can do this via visiting the official Splinterlands/Steemmonsters site and going to the Shop section. Important Note: UNTAMED Booster Packs can't be opened at this time.
As noted above the first kickstarter had 274 backers that pledged slightly over $88,000. The second Kickstarter managed to get 334 backers that pledged over $200,000.
These numbers are something to be proud of as its no easy feat to get a collective group of people to pledge such amounts. Just as important as the pledged amount is the fact that the second kickstarter out performed the first by a large margin.
The second Kickstarter managed to pull in about 60 more investors over the total amount of investors the first kickstarter had. The Second Kickstarter also outperformed in total dollar amount pledged with earning near $110,000 more then the first Kickstarter totals.
What does this all mean?
In a single word,GROWTH........ While some of you may look on and say those investor numbers aren't very high, I would say you're looking at it from the wrong perspective. Its not always about the number of investors, as equally or possibly even more important as quantity is quality. And if judging by the total pledged amount is any indication we have plenty of quality investors and/or gamer's who participated in these Kickstarters.
$88,000 is a large chunk of money for a start-up to get from a group of investors. Fastforward to a year later and the Splinterlands team make lightening strike again but this time for $200,000+. Watching this unfold is nothing short of amazing. The second Kickstarter not only shows growth in the game but it also shows the current player base isn't going anywhere making Splinterlands one of the safest crypto investments today.
