How exactly do I get these lovely virtual kittens (CryptoKitties)?
The complicated nature of the Blockchain technology as it’s still a relatively new stuff remains a problem, at least until the rest of the world catches up.
Here’s the deal.
The company “Axiom Zen” releases a new Cryptokitty approximately every 15 minutes –known as parentless Kitties “Generation Zero” CryptoKitties.
According to the company, a “Gen 0” kitty price is determined by the average price of the last five cats sold plus 50 percent.
Once all the “Gen 0” Kitties are gone, the only way to get a new CryptoKitty is to breed two together or to buy one from another user on the marketplace.
Buying cryptokitties is as easy as it gets. All you need do is to go to the “Marketplace” on your profile and look at the CryptoKitties for sale, or breed two CryptoKitties together.
However, through breeding, there are a nearly unlimited possible number of possible CryptoKitties that can be created.
Fueling the craze for cryptokitties, one man, according to “The Verge”, made more money trading kitties than in his IRA during a booming stock market prompting Axiom Zen co-founder Roham Gharegozlou to tweet a note of caution advising users against using the game as a financial instrument, like bitcoin.
“This is not an investment, this is a game. Flavelle said emphatically. “There’s no other way to say this — this is a game. It is a game in which some people have managed to have some interesting returns early on, and for them I’m very happy, but that is not the point, and that is not why we built it. There is a dramatic emphasis on the alt-coin nature of this, and that is an incredibly false dichotomy.”
Cryptokitties is fast becoming the phenomenal game of the crypto world.
