Are kryptokitties here to stay? Win a FREE kitten

in crypto •  9 months ago

What probably started as an experiment within a dev team has quickly turned into a massively popular game, a genetic simulator (educational), a benchtest for the Etherium network, and a way for regular folks to make money.

cryptokitties

Wait, I can hear many of you now, mumbling about how sure... cryptokitties is an entertaining game but it costs to play. Agreed, and there are several pitfalls that can lead to expenses without return. But once you start to view cryptokitty gaming with value goals, the ROI mentality will and should influence your decisions about what kitties to buy, which to sell and which to breed with what other genes.

I'll probably be writing a short guide on how to increase your chances of profiting with cryptokitties and yes, you can make money breeding kittens. But it's not as easy as simply putting 2 kittens in a box and hope the litter turns out royal.

As to the question whether cryptokitties are here to stay: categorically YES.
What we see now is just the very first installment and I am confident we will see an evolution not only of our kitties, but of the game functionality. With that in mind, I for one believe there are multiple benefits to being an early adopter and staying ahead of the pack that may come as the game evolves.

Let me know if you want a quick guide on choosing kittens to breed. If you haven't started breeding kittens, or if you simply want to increase your gene pool for free, have a go in my cryptokitten giveaway:

To WIN a FREE cryptokitten simply comment, re-steem, upvote to participate! A winner will be chosen on Saturday Dec 16.

Hi!
I would love to win a kittie! I have lost a lot of eth on failed transactions that take my money and dont give me anything. A not so good intro to eth for me. :(

Great post! How do you choose kittens to get a rarer breed? I'm real excited to see how these kittens are valued overtime.

I upvoted and resteemed for my followers, too! Thanks!

A cool kittie would be cool - if I win , I might another to breed ...

I started also just for fun. Currently I am buying mostly based on the visual aspect of the kitty (and Gen + cool down time of course). If it looks great (nice colours like in your picture) and is affordable, I'll try to get them. Currently it is hard though, low gen kitties are sold very fast.
By the way, thanks for the contest!

Thanks for the contest. I bought some kitties yesterday and tried to make profit by breeding, siring, etc but I mostly wasted my time and my ether in failed transactions :D

Thanks for this ! 0xe7965443d2c1b65530deb22b519de326b92a718d

I've been trying to buy all day with no luck, my funds are limited and the cheaper ones are gone instantly. Lost my transaction fee on a failed attempt ( not very nice ). So If you could get me started, I would be forever gratefull. :-)

Life is Good

Its a good game

I like it

but not sure how to play it well.

Hopefully you would do some posts about it, so I just decided to follow you.

Fingers Crossed !

Sounds good! Saturday is just 3 days away :)

yes - 3 days only :D

I have become interested in the idea of crypto kitties, I'm interested in the experience and to test the hype. I grew up and saw the Tamogachi craze and it was insane.

Is Crypto Kitties the new Tamogachi, I don't know, but i do want to find out.

so please Id love a lesson in Crypto Kitties.

I remember when Tamagotchi first hit the market, the one with the basic lcd window and no clue on how to make the critters stay alive :) I expect we will see more games of this sort. Cryptokitties isn't perfect when it comes to genetic application so it is somewhat easier to figure out than real life.

Cats have individual preferences for scratching surfaces and angles. Some are horizontal scratchers while others exercise their claws vertically.

Looking forward to the guide! :)

Omg omg I love each one of these cryptokitties (cryptocuties ;) ), be it the early gen ones or the ones that no one seems to want, they all look so adorable... :D I can't wait to have one of my own... And yes, its always great to be an early adopter to something that could possibly be revolutionary. Same as in the case of Steemit, and in general, those who've adopted cryptocurrency itself are a very small bunch compared to the global population. We should all just HODL... wish us all great prosperity and happiness :)

The thing with the ones no one seems to want is they can be a bargain, check the parent lineage because those stray kitties may be carrying important genes to cheaply into your kitty den.

wow i never thought it that way and a smart thing to do by the devs. i will keep prowling with this in mind now...
