I have been standing on the sidelines with Steem Monsters and I'm excited to be finally jumping in! I'm not much of a gamer, and so I didn't really think that Steem Monsters would be something I could get excited about. Now that I've actually been playing around with it and learning more - I keep getting more and more excited about it's potential to add value to the Steem blockchain.
This entire video is geared towards people like me. Those that maybe aren't really gamers and have been watching Steem Monsters blow up from the sidelines. In this video, I talk about all the reasons why Steemians should be getting involved in Steem Monsters - even if you aren't planning to play the tournaments.
Topics Covered in This Video
Steem Monsters is one of the most impactful things to happen to the Steem blockchain. It has so much potential to attract new users.
Steem Monsters helps us address the issue of user retention because it gives people a reason to login everyday and interact on Steemit.
Opening booster packs is FUN! You never know what you are going to get. Flipping over each card is super exciting - especially now that they have special effects on the screen if you get a rare, epic or legendary card.
Speaking of that - I explain what the terms legendary, epic and rare even mean.
It can be a great investment. Even if you aren't planning to play the tournaments - stocking up on booster packs while they are only $2 could be a great idea. Each pack consists of five random cards - some of which might be really valuable. A legendary card just sold for 350 SBD the other day! The demand for cards will only continue to grow.
Why you should follow the @steemmonsters account. It's the best way to stay updated on what's happening and they do some pretty big giveaways too.
If you are a parent - this could be a really fun thing to do with your kids. They get excited to see what cards are in a booster pack - and all the characters or "monsters" are really interesting too. The kids will love em.
Sometimes games like this can be intimidating for non-gamers like me. Often this intimidation comes from fear of the unknown. That's why I do a full screen share tutorial to walk you through each step of the process. From getting onto the Steem Monster site, to buying the starter pack, to explaining the difference between a monster and a summoner.
My reaction to the overlook look and feel of the site.
