It’s been almost a year since CryptoKitties first launched back in October 2017. Since then, we’ve seen a lot of cool stuff and talented teams emerge in their wake. CryptoKitties is largely considered the game that spawned the blockchain games movement. And 289 days after they launched, they are celebrating a big milestone. On September 12, 2018, they celebrated the birth of their 1,000,000th Kitty!
Celebrating the birth of Vulcat.
And if that wasn’t enough, the CryptoKitties team has a few other milestones to celebrate:
- Since November 2017, more than 340,000 Kitties have been sold, resulting in more than US $25 million being exchanged on the platform.
- More than 100 Kitties have sold for at least US $10,000, with one cat, the now fabled Kitty #127, fetching more than US $140,000 at a charity auction in New York. Proceeds from that sale went to a foundation supporting art on the blockchain.
- In their community Discord, they’ve averaged about 1,000 daily messages, with some recent days seeing nearly six times that volume. At its busiest late last year, more than 10,000 messages were written in our Discord in just one day.
While the market is still small, we can all still appreciate the accomplishments the team behind CryptoKitties has made. All of this is helping the market gain traction, get attention, and grow; which is good for everyone. We at Crypto Bit Games look forward to the next year of accomplishments from CryptoKitties and hopefully many other innovative and exciting blockchain game projects.
