CryptoKitties is a breakout application built on the Ethereum blockchain, and it’s taking over the crypto world.

Crypto users are going crazy for the virtual cat game, which features collectible kittens with a real-world value.

The application bridges the gap between the Ethereum “world computer” and a mainstream audience, thanks to its wide appeal and simple user interface.

If you’re interested in the kitty craze, or in Ethereum, the game and its blockchain mechanics are detailed below.

Game mechanics
CryptoKitties lets users purchase collectible kitties with Ethereum, and then breed them to create more kitties.

Each cat has its own genetics which are inherited from its parents and stored in a 256-bit hexadecimal number.

These genes exhibit themselves as “Cattributes”, which define how a cat looks.

Cattributes define colour, expression, body type, and furriness of a CryptoKitty – and players breed kitties to develop rare Cattributes.

Kitties are genderless and can act as either the dad or mom in a breeding pair.

Players can also breed their cats with those of other players, selling the “siring services” of their digital cat for Ethereum.

What makes a Kitty good?

The traits, cooldown speed and generation all affect the overall price and desirability of the kitties.

Traits:

Certain traits are rarer than others, making the Kitty more desirable. As more kitties are bred with these traits and new traits are discovered, the value of each one can change.
