Last month, we covered a new wave of Beanie Baby-esque collectibles that live on the blockchain.
Yesterday, CryptoKitties announced a $12M round from Andreessen Horowitz and Union Square Ventures. They sell cats on the blockchain. One sold for over $100,000.
The next generation of crypto collectibles is coming:
🌷 Design and trade tulips on the blockchain. Powered by the same browser-based software as CryptoKitties, you can now breed your own unique digital tulips on the Ethereum blockchain. Tastefully ironic.
🐶 Breedable dogs on the blockchain. Chinese tech giant Baidu launched CryptoDoggies, a near copy of the adorable CryptoKitties.
📸 Famous celebrities on the blockchain. Elon Musk, Angelina Jolie, Kanye West, and Vitalik Buterin are all available for sale... well, sort of. Crypto trading cards of your favorite celebs are here.
