It makes me pick up more too as I'm mostly just looping the rental payments back into new cards. I thought it would be good to talk to people about the benefits of renting cards. ## The Main Problem Time & Money Often what I've seen is that some people have time, some people have money, and rarely do people have time and money. So, it's great to be able to separate the two. Now players can have money, setup automatic rentals, and spend that money on whatever they'd like later or players without money can now get some key cards they need to make a decent rank. @jacekw showed this was possible by spending approximately $12 to get 30th on the leaderboard. So, I know people say and they are right that owning your own deck is a massive barrier to entry in this game, but it turns out renting yourself a sweet deck is pretty affordable. ## The benefit To card hodlers: Passive income!!! Own cards, own crypto assets, they have limited supply, they constantly get eaten for better rewards, they also completely vanish and turn into DEC. So, price stay relatively flat while there's new packs to be purchased, but once those packs are gone prices don't have any upper limit anymore. To players: Play high level for cheap! That's right for limited cash outlay you can actually make some decent money. You can make $4-6 bucks a day at high level to recoup the lend, you can get rewards cards every day, you can earn season cards every 2 weeks, you can get on the leaderboard, and you can win tournaments. There's a lot of ways to earn here and if you pick some good cards then it's easy to see how you'll earn to play rather than spend to play. ## How do I rent? The ability to delegate cards is built into the code of the main game, but it isn't part of the user interface. So, if you want to rent you're gonna have to do it through private lending, which is a lot to manage or work with peakmonsters.com, which has been an awesome partner from the start. Go to peakmonsters.com If you're looking to rent you'll click market. !(https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmVhKX8WgcbxjKLKEjpBL9vKT3oXB7HF2tCRKgAhWGLdwB/image.png) If you're looking to loan out you'll click on my collection, select a card, and click the rent button. !(https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmZr8ZYFdrw7cCZgLLpUS6pnRqAL64Lztmvf7UVY5rSkCC/image.png) Once you have picked your card and hit rent you'll get some options. !(https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmf7nP6jRhUpwo49148yHLc2BFjnoEahsCZga9dAFj6zAG/image.png) I think having an escrow worth 7 days of rental income is important so people don't randomly break your contract without consequences. I think 90 days is a good rental period. If prices keep rising I want to make sure that I can adjust my rentals and I don't want ot have to wait every 6 months. ## Deposit and withdraw !(https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmaLJqA8B3Kp9TncaVAkeQLBWLXjeGEVvKCT7BHxPqUhBt/image.png) You can add and remove steem from their credit system by clicking the buttons highlighted above. If you're a renter make sure to keep enough credit on hand to pay for your rentals or the contracts will be broken. ## Rental Income !(https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmPNCd4R26z8xXQ6LtcXTrDUuJAYu6BSrcX5gyYUXT9Wwn/image.png) If you want to see how things are going click on your profile and then click under rental contracts. You'll see what contracts are active and how they are earning. ## My rentals I have an account called smalp (steem monsters asset leasing program) which buys a lot of cards and rents them out.
