Orbs, the undervalued and overlooked investment still available at Splinterlands.io

Will the orbs go the distance.png

Orbs... once they are gone, they will be gone for good!

By now everyone is aware that the beta packs are SOLD OUT. Sure you can still grab them from the market, but they are already more expensive than purchasing orbs. The only people left holding Beta probably bought them with the intention to HODL and sell to those suffering FOMO, and If Beta performs anything like Alpha, smart move on their behalf! Beta prices have already seen impressive growth. While hardly any orbs even hit the maket.
So what's left at Splinterlands? The undervalued Orbs

Alpha Packs

While Crypto prices across the board continue to drop, Alpha packs have defied the market, not only holding strong but as scarcity increases, people are willing to spend even more than they were before.

Alpha packs sold for $2 each. On the 27th of May 2018, Steem Monsters officially launched, and the price of steem was $2.53, meaning you could pick up an alpha pack for under one Steem.

As you can see above, the cheapest Alpha pack currently on the market is nearly 42 Steem, and sure steem prices have dropped that's why it's worth so much more, but if you look up top you will also see the USD value has also more than tripled.

If you believe in the Steem Blockchain, that is a solid ROI in Steem

Beta Packs

Beta packs have been sold out for less than 24 hours and already packs are being purchased for more than 29% over of the original retail price... Crazy!

With orbs having a lower print and also a higher burn value, I expect the number of available orbs to start dropping quite rapidly now. I am starting to wonder if they will even go the distance...

Orbs (Promo Packs)

While there is only one for now, orbs are currently cheaper to buy than Beta on the market. As fewer Orbs were printed, I think people are currently overlooking the potential of ROI on the Orbs, and while no Betas are available for purchase directly using DEC. I think we are about to see the number of available Orbs start to plummet. Remember Beta and alpha packs were also rewards at one point in time, Orb to my knowledge, were not.
Will the orbs be gone before Untamed even arrives?

That's an excellent point. I had a similar thought yesterday. I agree that we likely see an increase in Orb sales thus hopefully an increase in the price of DEC.

I think it may take a week or two before the Orb buying starts to pick up so my guess is 125000 orbs left before post payout.

About 280 already gone in 12 hours!

Yeah, it was a horrible guess on my part lol
