Looks like the rental market got a little busy the other day! The 2.32 million active rentals kind of busy. That's a lot of cards being rented, sure, but that's also a lot of earning for card owners too:#splinterlands #sps #spt #hive #playtoearn #GameFi https://t.co/5q99e5yubG

Commenting on the milestone, Splinterlands CEO Jesse “Aggroed” Reich noted:
“We recently shared that we hit 2 billion games played, and now we’re here, reaching another remarkable milestone in the history of NFT rentals. We look forward to achieving more of these in the future.”
Rent and play… and win
NFT rental markets launched on the P2E platform in July 2021, and have become popular with players after it opened up further opportunities for rewards.
Players can use rented cards to play and earn, eliminating the need for card purchases. With as low as 1,100th of a cent, a player can invest in the Splinterlands game and seize on the accessibility to play for enticing rewards.
One player who reportedly started with just $10 ended up accruing gains of up to $17,000, the platform said in a press release.
Players can also earn by simply renting out their cards to other gamers in the system.
Other than card rentals, Splinterlands’ NFT markets offer access to game titles, totems, packs, skins and land. The platform announced last week that it was eyeing a node program, with $1 billion in burn and rewards in the mix.
Dappradar ranks Splinterlands as the top blockchain game today and developments such as validator nodes are essential as it seeks to expand in the gaming and Web3 industry.
