Last week AxiomZen Studios launched “Digital Cats” or “Crypto Kitties”, based on the Etherium coin, where you can buy and breed a digital cat.
As with everything new and strange, the news spread immediately, and the eccentric began spending more than $ 6.4 million on these virtual cats. The most expensive cat was sold for $ 115,000 a few days ago.
Cats here are entirely owned by you. When the studio gives them you will have all the power to buy a cat. In fact, there can never be a cat. They can not take it from you and can not be destroyed, thanks to blockchain technology.
But how do these Crypto Kitties differ from other games?
In traditional video games, the company may have access to your characters, and elements within the game at any time that can delete, prohibit, copy anything, but with these cats you have all the powers and no one else.
But you may say that the prices of these cats are very expensive. Will I pay all this money just for a digital cat I can not touch?
The idea here is, as some believe, is not just collecting cats, let’s pause for a moment and think that instead of selling cats, this site sold homes, buildings and land ownership, shares to companies like Amazon and Facebook.
So, what makes these cats interesting is that their idea is much larger. Working with the mass chain is the future of new technology. There are many people who think that blockchain is the most important invention since the Internet. New and realistic things that never existed before, and building a bridge between the virtual world and the real world, and combining the most important features such as: scarcity, and ease of dealing as sending an e-mail.
With these cats starting the new digital revolution, considering the success we have achieved, we expect to see many similar projects in the future for creative ideas. In the future, we can see Pokemon on blockchain in the next three years, and our childhood programs become reality.
Etherium can run a code, so it can build many applications, and code cats are the most popular example.
