I just started playing this Cryptokitties game. I’m obsessed not because it’s fun (although it is). It’s that I missed getting rich on the Bitcoin Boom and I was hoping to make up for that somehow on the up-and-coming cryptocurrencies.
This seemed like a good way to learn more about blockchain technology and to learn what it’s like to use cryptocurrencies. I know about them, and I know the terms associated with them, but I had never actually used any of them – it just seemed too complicated to be practical. But I had a choice – I could work – or I could play Criptokitties and make the same amount of money. Well, that was pretty far fetched, but hey, these kitties that I saw going for 0.02 Etherium the first day I looked, were going for 0.05 Ethermium on the second day, and 0.1 Etherium on the third day. Not only that but if I didn’t get in on the first few days of gaming, my chances of having kitties in the single digit generations was close to zero. there’s no way I was going to pay thousands of dollars for a Gen 0 digital pet.
So, I put in $100 USD and started breeding these things. It’s pretty addictive. In three days, I have over 30 cats, and just TODAY – like 10 minutes ago, I gave birth to a VAMPIRE! I’ll spare you the details, but this “fancy” kitty is the rarest in the game. Out of the first 100,000 kitties, there only 8 of them. One of them that I found in the marketplace is selling for 100 Etherium. At today’s exchange rate, that’s $40,000 USD!
That may not seem like a ton of money, but for three days work and $100, it’s probably the best return I’ve ever had on an investment. I have a headache, but I assure you, that will go away… IF I can stop playing Criptokitties. I mean, how can I justify NOT playing Cryptokitties when I just gave birth to a $40,000 Vampire? Who knows if it will ever sell for anything close to that – it’s basically just a number that means something on Cryptokitties. But, maybe it will. Maybe it will be worth 10 times that in a few weeks.
Anyway, if you want to take the excitement out of my hands and just buy my Cryptokitties Vampire, you can do it here:
But I’m only listing it for 24 hours. If it doesn’t go in the 24 hours I’ll probably just keep it and see if I become rich from it. After all, that one and 30 other kitties only set me back a hundred bucks. This is exciting!
