Before burning cards for DEC, sell them to my bot for more DEC

in steemmonsters •  3 months ago  (edited)

I'm currently buying all regular foil Steem Monsters/Splinterlands cards with DEC at 101% of their burn value, so if you're burning,you'll be better off selling to me. But having to actually contact me is a pain in the butt so I built a bot to do it for me.

Currently if you'd like to get DEC for a 1 bcx card, you can gift that card to @ottermaker and it will send you 101% of the DEC value on your Steem-Engine wallet. (You can import the DEC back into the game from there from the in-game wallet.)


You can send as many cards as you want at once, but they need to be 1 bcx because I haven't gotten bcx quite figured out yet in the api. I hope to fix that later today or tomorrow but I wanted to get the bot up quickly.

Recharging the account is manual, so if it runs out of DEC (or if you send it a gold or a mulltiple-bcx card) it will automatically refund.

You can check the bot's wallet to see if it has enough DEC here:

Brilliant as always

How do you verify that the transaction actually went through with the coustom_json?

Query the API for the owner of the card. I have to do that to get the bcx count anyway.

A great way to get rid of some cards!

Is this still a thing?

Yes, going strong.

So are we selling you the cards for DEC, basically, or are you actually burning the cards/making them scarcer?

You are just waiting to profit once these cards are no longer produced by the game/beta packs sell out I assume?

Not saying any of that would be a bad thing, not like anyone could complain since you give us something in return, I'm just honestly curious what you are doing with them

It depends on the cards. The less-desirable ones I just save up and burn for the 5% max bonus, making a little flip profit off of the investment of holding a big DEC pool, since it takes a long time to get a reward to max if you're not buying them somehow.

The more-desirable ones get sold, traded, or added to my rental portfolio.
