Nicolas Grenié10 Who said that cryptocurrencies can't be fun? CryptoKitties is the first game using the blockchain at its core! You can buy, sell, or trade your CryptoKitty like it was a traditional collectible. The blockchain will track ownership securely. The exciting part comes with the possibility to breed two CryptoKitties together and create a brand new CryptoKitty. It's all about genes and evolution :) Really curious to see how this basic concept could evolve!
Derek Shanahan3 Such an amazing project.
Dieter Shirley3 @dshan Thanks Derek! I feel like this is one of the first dApps to put as much thought and effort into the UX as the crypto economics. So proud of our team's effort on this one! :-D
Mack Flavelle26 Hi Gang, A super team of some of my favourite people have been cranking hard to get this done, so I’m hyped to show you CryptoKitties. Blockchain technology could be the biggest revolution since the internet, but the majority of projects in this space are unapproachable to muggles. That's something we wanted to change with CryptoKitties. We figured- if you want to speak to regular people speak in regular language. And cats are the regular language of the internet. In CryptoKitties, users collect and breed digital cats. Through breeding, unique cattributes can be unlocked. Each CryptoKitty has a 256-bit genome that dictates its appearance and hidden traits, with 4-billion possible combinations. And we have Fancy Cats- kitties with custom art, including a little treat for Product Hunt fans. By leveraging the power of fun, we hope to introduce the public to cryptocurrencies and blockchain networks like Ethereum. We wanted to explore the concept of digital scarcity, crypto collectibles, and non-fungible tokens. Obviously, huge props to the like of cryptopunks, catmoon and cryptocats - we’re in good company!
Johan4 Fantastic ! Useless, therefore utterly indispensable ! Already made my first breed :)
Russ Smith10 I made 300 dollars last night playing crypto kitties. If you have eth and you aren't playing this game you are missing a huge opportunity. A) It's fun B) good intro to crypto C) 💰
Matthew Hui0 @russ_sm Do you have a link to your profile? Wanna see what you have

Karan Ganesan0 @russ_sm how much you put in to it in $ ?? To buy the kitties ?
Russ Smith0 @karanganesan at the time? 70'sh dollars. Now you would need to put in much more. The market is increasing in value every 24 hours as they release more traits, there's more people playing, etc. I can't even keep track of it anymore.
Russ Smith0 @karanganesan I subtracted the starting fee from the original amount I stated.
Joaquín Parra0 @russ_sm How much did you start playing with? wow
Dan Zhao2 Gen0 kitties are now insanely expensive (0.3 eth minimum?). Must be getting popular!
Mack Flavelle11 By the way, I wanted to call out https://www.producthunt.com/@guilegaspar as the brilliant artist responsible for all the cats. His work speaks for itself! (@producthunt can we add him as a maker as well - i don't seem to be able to edit.)
Markus Schuette1 Wut?
Vlad Calus0 What if I don't have any ETH?
Dieter Shirley0 @vladcalus Feel free to look around the site at other people's cats. But if you want to buy one, you've gotta get some Ether...
Igor Akulov1 This. Is. ADORABLE.
Pierre Bascoul0 @mackflavelle how did you get this awesome idea? xD Do you think you'll be able to make it grow in the long-term ?
Mack Flavelle2 @pierrebascoul ha. thanks! to be honest the idea isn't all that original. blockchain + cats. we're the third to market (that I know of.) But my team is extraordinarily talented. I'm still in awe of what they delivered. Our designers, developers and growth team each brought an intense passion to this project. As for long term- I don't know, but I think so. Two reasons- we have only seen the tip of the iceberg. There's still a ton of new genes plus fancy cats coming over the next year, and on top of that we are chomping at the bit to start iterating - we have so many cool things we want to get building.
Adam DePasqua0 It's no surprise that everyone from PH liked this. 😆
Roby Sharif0 https://www.cryptokitties.co/ site not loading! server overload!?
Palash Bagchi1 You guys have clogged the Ethereum Blockchain (26K Blocks are pending- you don't even want to pay Gas!!) . Silly that your engineers were not even aware of a staging layer framework without having to push every micro-transaction on the block! Shame on you guys.
Fabian Unruh0 yes humanity needs this!
Rudy Lee0 This is a fun and interesting way to get into and learn about cryptocurrency! Great job guys :D
Владимир Саввин0 This game swallowed up my friends

Caitlin McKenzie3 <p>I didn't know much about blockchain or cryptocurrency, but now I'm actually interested and enjoying getting more information about it as I expand my CryptoKitties litter! It's so much fun seeing the kitten you get when you breed your Kitties! Their designs are so neat! </p> Pros: <p>The CryptoKitties are so adorable! I also love that I've started learning about and earning cryptocurrency! It's a fun way to get involved! </p> Cons: <p>The kitties are all so cute I can't decided which ones to buy/breed! </p>
