Cryptokitties once was the first well-known DApp developed in Ethereum in 2017. When it was launched, it crashed the Ethereum blockchain with 1.3 million transactions. Simple but cute is the feature of this game, there always had so many players paying a lot for this game just want to breed a rare kittie because the price of a certain cat could be hundreds or even thousands of times of the normal cat.
Based on the price of the Ethe at the time, most expensive cat sold for 250ETH (more than 100K USD dollar).
A new blockchain collecting game called Blockchain Cuties Universe launched in March 2018 seems to be more ambitious than Cryptokitties. In addition to having some features as Cryptokitties like: all assets in the game belong to the player (each pet can be regarded as an ERC 721 Tokens), free to trade with other players in this ecology, you can also build up your own team with your special cuties varied from cat, dog, bear, lizard, fox pig even hedgehog and set them on adventures, fighting with other players in different battlefields.
Also, each cutie is born with a certain set of genes and you can equip your cuties with the trophies obtained from every battle.
Information about the genes, characteristics and species of each of cutie pets is public and transparent on the blockchain. The genes are composed of 64 different codes. Therefore, each cutie is unique in the game, and there also has noble, unique cuties and other limited edition cuties waiting for players to explore.
