Here's how you can use SoG to make money without playing the game.

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

Like all of you, I became very interested in blockchain technology as a way to invest in the future. I decided to play Spells of Genesis because they allowed you to blockchainize your cards and resell them for a profit for BCY, a cryptocurrency.

The game provides a mechanism for buying in-game gems which can be used to purchase Loot boxes (random cards) for $USD. Loot boxes let you receive random legendary and epic cards; one is essentially gambling USD in order to get better cards, which they can fuse into blockchain cards. All of this can be done without any kind of actual gameplay. For example, I can purchase $800 worth of cards, buy 10s of loot boxes, crystallize the cards I don't want, and then use my crystals to fuse the cards I want to turn into blockchain assets.

You can then sell your assets on the Book of Orbs app for BCY. In other words, Spells of Genesis is a gambling broker which sells you BCY, disguised as a video game. I have been doing this for a few cards. I am waiting for my entire party to be blockchainized, then I'll sell all my cards for a profit in the future. This is why I have downloaded the app.

If you want to, the entire app can be used as a mechanism to acquire blockchain securities which can be held like any other financial asset. I am pretty sure loot boxes are against app stores' terms of service, unless all probabilities are disclosed to the users and I am willing to bet that these assets can be classified as securities. Anyways, I hope all of you make lots of money with BCY while it lasts.

I don't think your strategy will render you profit. You will have to get a lot of Legendaries out of the Epic Loot boxes in order to even find enough to blockchainize a Legandary. So let's take your example: You buy Gems for 800$, that will give you 6400 gems.

So you are buying the Epic packs for 45 gems. 142 Epic packs. (Sometimes they sell Legendary packs for 180 gems, so you could buy about 35 of these)

So let's say you get a legendary about every 5th time in an Epic pack (I thin that is being generous to your view, I think it is less than every 5th). So you pull approx 28 Legendaries for 800$.  Amusing ideal pulls you can make 7 quad fused Legandaries out of that, which you can then blockchainize (at some cost, but let us assume you do one per month for 200 crystals which is virtually free and we also disregard the crystals needed to bring the cards to that level also).

Not sure about the Werewolf card.... can't find it right now.

 

So let us assume you reach an average price of 300 per Legendary. 2100 BCY is approx 525$.

 

This calculation does not account for: Crystals you need to get there, Epics you also get and may be able to blockchainize, cost of time, it also contains some assumptions
