Viral Cat Game in the Ethereum Network

post image

Lovely friendly kittens are taking over the Ethereum network and currently responsible for 4% of transactions carried out on the so-called "world computer." That’s right, smart contract platform that could potentially destroy several industries now plays a significant role in a viral cat game.

The game, CryptoKitties, launched just a few days ago, on November 28, but is already the second most popular app on Ethereum network. It is not surprising, the premise of CryptoKitties is to get an array of different cat cartoons, and each has various attributes or "cattitudes."

Buy and sell

These attributes are encoded in the virtual genome, and every cat has specific physical characteristics, phenotypes, depending on their genetic code, or genotype. If it sounds just like your biology class from high school, that's because it is. Users "breed" different kitties together to buy new cats with different and perhaps rare features. There are four billion possible combinations.

Just as you can buy swords and armor in online games like World of Warcraft, rare kitties can be exchanged for real money by putting prices up to $5,000 each. However, in contrast to the virtual items in online games, which will be lost if the game closes, the kitties live forever. It is because they are discrete tokens that exist in Ethereum, so even if the game developers disappear, kitties’ players will remain.

The game developers insist that it is impossible for them to play in. Technical architect Dieter Shirley said:

“The CryptoKitties economy is entirely decentralized and impossible for the development team to manipulate. Anyone on the team with knowledge of the breeding algorithm is prohibited from playing.”

Marketing Director Elsa Wilk wrote: “Our approach to brand and marketing is, in part, a tongue-in-cheek critique of the ICO market today.”

Types of Cryptokitties

Each kitty has its value due to its individuality. Now there are more than 20 000 kitties. Soon the kitties will be created every 10 minutes. Every user who has kitties can sell it. For example, the highest price for a cat has reached $24 000 dollars. It is amazing how quickly the kitties are winning the network. Now there are more than 20 000 kitties. Soon the kitties will be created every 10 minutes.

You can exchange for money rare types of kitties, like in any other online custom game. Each species is unique there are no predecessors.

It is interesting that the kitties can multiply and their number is increasing significantly. Nobody knows where it leads to. Most likely, such success of a simple upgrade will lead to something more serious, as well as creating new games and implementing them in the Blockchain. Also, it is a good opportunity to learn the secrets of genotype and how it works.

A lighthearted approach

With the eloquent the digital currency market, creating quick games and reaching new highs for almost a week, investors are furious. Speculators looking for the hottest ICOs with the aim to quickly sell your tokens for a vast profit. With such earnestness fulling the cryptocurrency market, games like CryptoKitties, provide a refreshing touch of humor.

Wall Street continues to show great interest in Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, Main Street can get the digital currency most unusually: by playing cat games on the Blockchain.
