BALLINCONSCIOUS BOUGHT HIS FIRST CRYPTOKITTIE! - TIME TO MAKE SOME CRYPTO BABY KITTIES! - THE RAREST CRYPTOKITTIE EVER MADE!
Ballinconscious Is a proud owner of a gen 0 cryptokittie!
I just recently figured out about cryptokitties a month ago and just now finally decided to get into it. Meet my first cryptokittie (gen 0 is da best) that I bought for 0.422179886775462599 Ether or ($372.84 USD).
His description reminded me of certain character so I decided to name him after that. MMMMmmmmm lasagna! Check him out here!
How I bought my first cryptokitty!
Three easy steps to be able to buy and breed your first cryptokitty!
1. Download Metamask here as a chrome or firefox plug in. This will be your wallet to be buy kittens in the game
2. Buy some etheruem from a crypto exchange or if you already own some just send it to your metamask wallet by copying the address! I sent 4.2 Eth from bittrex, I sent a small amount to test it since I have never used metamask.
3. Then once you see that the ethereum showed up in you metamask wallet you can buy your first crypto kitty! Metamask automatically plugs into the game. ^_^
If you need a more detailed guide to get yourself started here is a good one I found searching online by a person named @stellabelle. you probably haven't heard of her; It's not like she was one of the first people to join steemit :p
The addictive part of buying cryptokitties!
So I have always like collecting things (trading card game, toy figures, etc.) but never had much a lot of extra money to spend on things like that.....until I joined steemit :p
Now here I am buying digital cats for tons of money, just like the rare beanie babies that I could never afford as a kid.....except this time I can jump into the craze too!
The most expensive beanie baby I found is a princess diana purple bear supposedly worth 500k, DON'T RIP OFF THE TAG MOM! IT WILL LOSE IT'S VALUE!
Bye-bye sweet love! Genesis is now the proud owner of Stimpson J. Cat 💖 https://twitter.com/CryptoKitties/status/937058830143254528/photo/1
This cryptokittes cost 256 ether or around 210,000 USD! We can see a lot of similarities between beanie babies and cryptokitties. The biggest difference is the gamification of these collectables.
Now back to my crypto kittie collecting!
Next I bought Gumdrop because I like his eyes and his mustache! He cost me 0.054993807631944444 Ether ($47.79 USD) Check him out here!
You can also pimp out your kitties to make them have sex with other kitties in exchange for money (ether). Then after the get freaky, you get to keep the baby! This is called "sire". So I found some rare cattribute that I liked and found a person pimping out there kitty with those traits for .1 ether ($93.51 USD) and gave them some privacy!
Here is the beautiful baby that they made together! I named him Seafomo after the rare attribute..... I mean cattribute that I was seeking. Check him out here!
