When all of your friends are talking about building their fortunes on the blockchain the pressure of FOMO just builds to an unacceptable point. I have heard of blogging on BlockChain since December of 2020 but did not join Hive until February of 2021. Fast-acting like a turtle. I am not really an early adopter which is why I was so surprised to find that it is still early to be on the Hive BlockChain.
When playing Splinterlands I noticed the summoners have a lot to do with how well the rest of my cards battle against the opponent. In the Earth Splinter Mylor Crowling has the gift of thorns. This is like extra damage being done to enemy monsters.
