As we approach the launch of MarketSquare, we want to give our community an inside look at some of the partnerships we have formed. These strategic partnerships will not only help make MarketSquare the new homepage for the decentralized web but will also create inroads between ARK and other projects looking to build and collaborate together. Today we would like to introduce you to Splinterlands!
Splinterlands is a digital, collectible card game built on blockchain technology. It is similar in concept to games like Magic the Gathering and Hearthstone where you build up a collection of cards, which have various stats and abilities to use them to battle other players in skill-based matches.

By Splinterlands being a blockchain-based game, there are several advantages it gains by utilizing this technology. When trading card games were solely a physical commodity, players could own, buy, sell, and trade cards freely. However, with digital trading card games such as Hearthstone, players lost that ability. Games like Splinterlands restore that ability to its player-base. Additionally, blockchain technology has introduced a variety of other concepts into digital games such as digital scarcity and complete transparency. This means that players will know how many of each type of card exists, how many will ever exist, view and verify the historical record of each card, and more.
Splinterlands is not only an example of a blockchain game within our industry, it is an example of a blockchain game done right. A game that utilizes blockchain tech to create a unique experience for its players.
MarketSquare is shaping up to be an incredible community that will showcase the amazing projects, businesses, services, and individuals within our industry. Truly, it will be the new homepage for the decentralized web. To that effect, MarketSquare would be incomplete if it didn’t feature some of the most popular games within the blockchain community.
Between ARK & Splinterlands we have multiple areas that we can explore for collaboration beyond MarketSquare. We look forward to discussing these areas with the game’s creators as Splinterlands becomes a part of the MarketSquare community!
