Our Journey Into Owning and Breeding Kitties on the Blockchain ===> $$$
Me and my wife @shaff.aff are huge cat lovers, we never bought cats we like to adopt stray cats and share our home and life with them.
We fully encourage you not to buy cats but instead adopt, so many lovely cats are out there in need for a warm home and a loving family...
Shadow a.k.a The Sleeping Monk
Shadow found us around a year and half ago, i was walking back from the gym on my way home under heavy Malaysian rain suddenly I see a little thing comes running at me and climbed my shoulder seeking help, Shadow did have a collar so we knew he was lost, we tried to find his owners we put the word out in the neighborhood, flyers with his picture and our phone numbers but unfortunately we were never contacted by anybody so we decided to keep him and he became part of our family since.
Luna a.k.a The Foodie Maniac
After a year, we were coming back from a park walk me and my wife and we bumped into a little stray midget cute furry little kitten on the street alone.
We approached her and she was super friendly and cute we went up home grabbed cat food and went back, fed her, played with her and cleaned her ears as most street cats have ear mites and its a really annoying for them, After sometime when we decided to go back home after all the feeding and caressing session, Luna didn't want to leave us and kept following us on our way back home ...
We took this moment as a universal sign and we knew then what we have to do. Luna entered our lives and she became a great companion for the Sleepy Monk Shadow since.
How this whole Cryptokitties craze started ....
About a week ago or so I was browsing on Steemit and I was told by a fellow Steemian @chiefmappster about this meme competition held by @officialfuzzy the competition was about making a funny meme on how those called cryptokitties crashed the eos network.
I did take part as it was a fun competition and the rewards were super nice, but i didn't win :/ haha. These were my 2 submissions :
Entry 1 :
Out of curiosity after submitting for the competition i wanted to learn more about those cryptokitties, so I went ahead and i started researching until i bumped into a post about cryptokitties by the fellow Steemian member @steempowerpics
I did a research on those cryptokitties and told my wife about this cool new blockchain game were we can buy kitties, breed, sire and trade them and such on the blockchain.
So we decided to go ahead and buy 2 kitties, experiment and support the first ever blockchain game and also have a replica of our our cats Luna and Shadow in the blockchain world.
It started with 2 cryptokittiesn as below, as we didn't want to invest a lot of money ... We weren't sure about the game and if it's fun and legit.
For starters we went for a Gen 5 and Gen 6 cryptokitties.
After the first breeding from day 1 we managed to sell our first cryptokittie and make back all the money we already put to play the game, from their we went on a cryptokitties craze!!
We bred in total 19 kitties, we sold some in the cryptokittie internal market and some were sold directly to community friends on discord.
For anyone interested to check, sire, breed or buy our cryptokitties have a look at the below link :
