With roughly 14.5 million SPS tokens burned and 1 million vouchers or about 3.6 million SPS sent to the DAO, the sale accounted for approximately $4 million.

Node licenses allow users to get SPS, the platform’s governance token, as they opt to run the free node software.

Licenses are currently available via a public sale and 80% of the SPS used in the purchases is immediately burnt, while the remaining 20% goes to the DAO.

Liam Labistour, Splinterlands’ Director of Growth said:

These burn mechanics will put tremendous deflationary pressure on SPS, which will be quite revolutionary of a concept to the blockchain gaming vertical.”

SPS currently trades around $0.095, about 10% down in the past 24 hours. The token hit an all-time high of $1.07 in July 2021.
