CryptoKitties how it works and what is
CryptoKitties is a new game becoming famous in the world and it uses Ethereum as payment.
How does CryptoKitties work and what is it?
CryptoKitties is a game where you can buy and sell kittens, as well as collecting or breeding and to do so the Ethereum cryptocurrency for payments is used. Each cryptokitty has a different value, in fact there are kittens that can be more rare than others, and therefore have a higher value. If you sell it, there will be someone who buys it in Ethereum!
To date, the total sales of kittens on CryptoKitties are around 3 million dollars and the rarest kitten has been sold for more than 100,000 dollars!
So the game CryptoKitties is based on blockchain technology, technology used precisely by cryptocurrencies as the best known Bitcoin and Ethereum. Therefore when you go to sell and buy kittens, the transaction passes by blockchain as it happens with Bitcoin or Ethereum, therefore safe and reliable transactions.
So CryptoKitties is not a cryptocurrency, but it remains a game that uses blockchain technology to collect digital kittens or better virtual!
Another purpose of the game is not only to buy and sell cryptokitty, but to breed cats to make them reproduce and maybe give birth to rare kittens that can then be sold at very high prices.
