What is Splinterlands?

What is a bot?

A Splinterlands bot is a piece of software that automates part of the Splinterlands game. There are many different bots for different purposes. The Archmage Splinterlands bot plays your ranked battles for you and claims your daily rewards.

What is a token?

Our access passes, ARCHMAGEA, ARCHMAGEB and ARCHMAGE, are tokens on Hive Engine. A token is a piece of property. Ownership is stored on a blockchain. You can buy, sell or transfer an access token from Archmage at any time.

What is a Non-Fungible Token?

A Non-Fungible Token, or NFT, is a piece of property on a blockchain. But, unlike most tokens, no two are alike. NFTs, therefore, can be useful for tracking ownership of unique online assets, rather than ones that can be swapped for each other (fungible).

What is Hive?

Hive is a blockchain. The Hive cryptocurrency is tracked by that blockchain. The Hive blockchain can also track the ownership of its own NFTs. Splinterlands cards are NFTs based on Hive.

What are KeyChain and HiveSigner?

KeyChain and HiveSigner are ways that you can 'sign' Hive transactions. Just like a contract in real life, a cryptocurrency transaction needs to be signed to be valid. Archmage requires that you sign our configuration page so we know we have the right person.
