LOCAL DICTIONARY

In 2017, Cryptokitties was introduced as the first big blockchain game on the Ethereum network, developed by Axiom Zen. The game soon became surprisingly popular with the concept of collecting virtual cats as non-fungible tokens (ERC-721 tokens) that congested 25% of all Ethereum traffic.


Players in Cryptokitties are able to purchase, collect, breed and sell their virtual cats. Every cat features different attributes that make them unique and cannot be replicated. Some cats are rarer than others for some certain reasons, which values can reach to hundreds of thousands of dollars.


In October 2018, CryptoKitties achieved the milestone of 1 million cats being bred, with a volume of 3.2 million transactions on its smart contracts.


To play Cryptokitties, you will need some Ethers in your HB Wallet. Once your wallet is loaded, let the fun begin!

In the confirmation message, you can choose how fast you want your transaction to be executed. For every transaction to be approved, a player must pay a small amount of transaction (Gas) fee to the Ethereum network to confirm the transaction. You basically pay Gas fee by using Ether (ETH), so don't worry too much.


The speed of your transaction depends on how you to set the Gas Price. A higher Gas Price means faster processing, and vice versa.

When specifying transaction fees, you should be aware that different kitties can have different gas costs.

How to breed


When you already have your own kitties, you can breed two of them together or breed with any siring partners from the Siring Auction to create new kitties that may reveal new traits. Some of those siring partners can come with a price of breeding designated by their owners.
