    Pros: 

    Super cute kitties

    Web-app design and usability

    Learnt a load about the blockchain

    Cons: 

    Could do with more searching and filtering options

    I've been reading and learning more about the blockchain recently and CryptoKitties has provided a hands on (and fun!) side to the learning and experimenting. I am fast learning about gas, transactions, contracts, and feeling more confident buying and selling using Eth.

    The UX and artwork is absolutely incredible! Not only are the kitties adorable, but all of the website illustrations and design decisions make developer me very happy.

    Super nice work guys. I am excited to see more advanced filtering and searching in the next version!

  • Pros: 

    The CryptoKitties are so adorable! I also love that I've started learning about and earning cryptocurrency! It's a fun way to get involved!

    Cons: 

    The kitties are all so cute I can't decided which ones to buy/breed!

    I didn't know much about blockchain or cryptocurrency, but now I'm actually interested and enjoying getting more information about it as I expand my CryptoKitties litter! It's so much fun seeing the kitten you get when you breed your Kitties! Their designs are so neat!

Hi Gang, A super team of some of my favourite people have been cranking hard to get this done, so I’m hyped to show you CryptoKitties. Blockchain technology could be the biggest revolution since the internet, but the majority of projects in this space are unapproachable to muggles. That's something we wanted to change with CryptoKitties. We figured- if you want to speak to regular people speak in regular language. And cats are the regular language of the internet. In CryptoKitties, users collect and breed digital cats. Through breeding, unique cattributes can be unlocked. Each CryptoKitty has a 256-bit genome that dictates its appearance and hidden traits, with 4-billion possible combinations. And we have Fancy Cats- kitties with custom art, including a little treat for Product Hunt fans. By leveraging the power of fun, we hope to introduce the public to cryptocurrencies and blockchain networks like Ethereum. We wanted to explore the concept of digital scarcity, crypto collectibles, and non-fungible tokens. Obviously, huge props to the like of cryptopunks, catmoon and cryptocats - we’re in good company!

Who said that cryptocurrencies can't be fun? CryptoKitties is the first game using the blockchain at its core! You can buy, sell, or trade your CryptoKitty like it was a traditional collectible. The blockchain will track ownership securely. The exciting part comes with the possibility to breed two CryptoKitties together and create a brand new CryptoKitty. It's all about genes and evolution :) Really curious to see how this basic concept could evolve!

I made 300 dollars last night playing crypto kitties. If you have eth and you aren't playing this game you are missing a huge opportunity. A) It's fun B) good intro to crypto C) 💰

@russ_sm how much you put in to it in $ ?? To buy the kitties ?
Russ Smith@russ_sm · Product Dude @ Codeq ᕕ( ᐕ )ᕗ
@karanganesan at the time? 70'sh dollars. Now you would need to put in much more. The market is increasing in value every 24 hours as they release more traits, there's more people playing, etc. I can't even keep track of it anymore.

@karanganesan I subtracted the starting fee from the original amount I stated.

By the way, I wanted to call out https://www.producthunt.com/@gui... as the brilliant artist responsible for all the cats. His work speaks for itself! (@producthunt can we add him as a maker as well - i don't seem to be able to edit.)

Fantastic ! Useless, therefore utterly indispensable ! Already made my first breed :)
