400M SPS tokens, or 13.33% of the total token supply, will be airdropped to players based upon the amount and type of Splinterlands assets held in their account. Rather than have a specific airdrop date/time with a snapshot as is common, SPS tokens will be airdropped to asset holders on a daily basis over a 1-year period. The goal is to encourage players to accumulate and hold Splinterlands assets over a longer period rather than having a big rush up until the snapshot followed by a dump shortly afterwards.
Nearly every Splinterlands asset will be eligible to earn SPS tokens in the airdrop. Each type of asset will be assigned a specific amount of "airdrop points" that it is worth. Then the total number of airdrop points will be added up across all assets in all accounts in the game and held externally once each day and ~1,100,000 SPS tokens (400M / 365 days) will be divided by the total number of airdrop points to determine how many SPS tokens each airdrop point is worth that day.
As an example, if there are a total of 5 billion airdrop points in total across all assets in the game on a particular day, then players will receive 0.00022 SPS tokens (1.1M / 5B) for each airdrop point worth of assets they hold in their account at the time of the snapshot that day.
The base asset for determining airdrop points will be Splinterlands cards. Cards will be valued by their Collection Power, which is equivalent to the DEC burn value of the card, and each point of collection power will be worth one airdrop point.
Please note that the airdrop points will be based on cards owned by each account, meaning that cards delegated to another account will count towards the card owner's account, not the account to which the card is delegated. Additionally, cards listed for sale on the market will also count as they are still owned by the player until they are sold.
The number of airdrop points each type of asset will be worth is detailed in the table below:
Splinterlands assets (DEC, cards, packs, land claims, etc) held on external platforms including Steem Engine, Hive Engine, WAX, Tron, BSC, and Ethereum will all still be eligible to receive airdrop tokens based on the mechanism described above without having to transfer them back into the game, as will DEC tokens staked in these liquidity pools; Swap.Hive:DEC and DEC:SPS on Tribal Dex (HIVE), DEC:BUSD on CubDefi (BSC), and DEC:ETH on Uniswap (ETH).
Please note that DEC or other game tokens listed for sale on external bid/ask markets (not liquidity pools) such as Steem Engine, Hive Engine, and TronTrade will not be eligible for the airdrop rewards.
