CryptoKitties? Let the games begin..

I have to admit it…I’m not a gamer.

I cant imagine sitting down for hours on end playing a game either by myself or with other people. However, I do love animals and the thought of creating and breeding kitties did intrigue me.

But of course the logical side of my brain also wanted to know how buying and breeding kitties would help me learn about cryptocurrency. I decided to visit the site out of sheer curiosity and was surprised that I learned a few things.

First of all, you have to buy the kitties with Ethereum. inside the marketplace on the site. There is a breeding fee that is about 0.008 Ether (approx. $4.69). Ok, that’s not too bad, but you can only play the game on a PC/MAC desktop. You also have to use a Metamask digital wallet. I guess if you are a gamer with a desktop set-up this scenario would be normal for you. I have read reviews that suggest that people are having a great time collecting kitties and “growing their crypto family”.  It seems that you can also make a good deal of money by breeding, mating and selling your kitties. The overall goal is to get a kitty that everyone wants.

If your into gaming, Cryptokitties just might be your entry into the crypto world. I found a site that talks about the possible future of crypto gaming. Maybe I will stick my toe in the water one day just to make myself a virtual kitty.
