    CryptoKitties – Adorable Collectible Breedable Digital Cats Game?

    About CryptoKitties

    The internet has almost become synonymous with cute cats, and thus to use this entry point, many developers have embraced platforms which make use of felines in their interface.

    CryptoKitties is one such venture that was launched earlier this week in hopes to virtualize the Ethereum blockchain experience, and at the same time entertain and inform users. In a recent interview done with CryptoKitties M.D  Elsa Wilk, she had the following comments: “Blockchain technology could be the biggest technology revolution since the Internet, but opportunists, investment froth, and a lack of consideration for everyday consumers is distracting folks from the technology’s long-term potential.”

    While this is one of the first lighthearted attempts to use cryptocurrency in a unique way, many new developers are also catching onto this trend. For example, Dogecoin was released sometime last year, and featured a similar interface.

    While these platforms are essentially meant for entertainment, they are also fully capable of being used as digital wallets. They are able to generate addresses as well as send and receive money from all over the globe.

    More About CryptoKitties…

    From a requirement standpoint, the game only needs users to possess a desktop or laptop that supports full Chrome browser functionality. In addition to this, customers also need to be have an Ethereum wallet that is compatible with web apps and other 3rd party softwares. When looking at the intricacies of this platform, we can see that once logged on to the CryptoKitties site, players can buy and sell virtual cats (even breed them).

    When spoken to recently, Dieter Shirley, the architect behind CryptoKitties had the following things to say, “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.”

    In terms of the design and graphics of the system, each individual cat is uniquely shaped and has been identified via the use of a 256-bit number which represents their distinct genome (as part of the game’s wider generated cat DNA).

    Will People Use This CryptoKitties?

    When dealing with real digital assets people usually don't like to muck around and play the fool. However, since all of the security protocols used in Cryptokitties are up to date, this platform has the potential to become a popular avenue for crypto exchange in the coming months.

    When asked about the future of this platform, a company representative said that “Our approach to brand and marketing is, in part, a tongue-in-cheek critique of the ICO market today. As it stands the game would appear to appeal to the inner collector in us all, especially those with a proclivity towards cute.”
