  2. Article: In Defense of CryptoKitties by Richard Chen (Blockchain analyst at 1confirmation. Stanford CS)

    geraldbauer , 04 April 2018 20:56

      great articles yes it,s possible crypto games like cryptokitties and crypto collectables like cryptopunks could be a huge market in the coming years but a lot of new games are coming new competition axies is getting popular it,s the next generation blockchain game. cryptokitties has to come with new features if it,s doesn,t want to lose market share in the coming months

  3. Kittymoon: dapp for CK to play with kitties on the MOooON (more info)

    zolette , 04 April 2018 12:07

      Sounds like a scam.

      cyphergaiden , 04 April 2018 19:51

      That address we need to send our kitties to is not a smart contract.

      Which means this "dapp" is not trustless and someone can just steal your kitties.

      It can still work but I'm warning you it is not trustless.

      jimjimvalkema , 04 April 2018 14:26

      No Kitties :(

      Dwite , 04 April 2018 18:58

      Hello breeders, Can someone help me to create the smart contract?

  4. I'm glad the Dev's are asking for feedback on the fancy system.

    helium_bet , 03 April 2018 18:44

      A lot of good points here, I think it depends on the perception though

      It’s not fun and expensive just because you decided to get as much fancies as possible, if you don’t like the process that much why not let other people spend their money?

      If someone wanted to monopolize the fancy but as the result have no money and a lot of cats no one wants to buy for more than the breeding fee, maybe it’s a lesson not to be greedy and not to rush next time? If you believe the fancies are special and should worth more, just hodl, right?

      The problem is actually similar to any other kind of cats in the game, people breed more than they can sell, then start undercuting each other and complaining :)

      It’s a game, the most players will spend more than they will ever earn, so maybe we just should adjust our expectations?

      NARW_Bombard , 03 April 2018 19:32

      I also believe that “prepared” players should have advantage, it will support players how don’t want to hurry and focus on exact trait instead

      You can buy purebreds relatively cheap when there is no demand for them, get few of each trait - you will support the game economy and be better prepared for the next fancy/mewtation

      NARW_Bombard , 03 April 2018 19:38

      My hope is that with the new fancies, they utilize later GEN's. Pushing the Gen's people want from 0-2 from 0-5 and so on so that even if you don't have a GEN 0 CK you can still breed something cool that someone else might buy at 1 ETH at GEN 5.

  9. Best Fancy / Worst Fancy? Why?

    nigerianprincessa , 02 April 2018 23:55

      Best: Momo-Chan Worst: Berry

      just look at them

      ekwenzu , 03 April 2018 02:35

      the best fancies are the dogcat and the fortune cats the worst maybe ducats

      franckgant , 03 April 2018 15:55

      Best: Momo-Chan Worst: Berry

      ekwenzu , 03 April 2018 00:01

      the ninjas are the coolest, dogcats are most rare pussfp, berry, and that green thing are sorta stupid

      and would be cool if the fancies did not all look identical but rather had the costumes on top of whatever looks their cattributes call for

      etherdomainames , 03 April 2018 18:52

      worst : Yuri, looks like a hamster . cool: The Alien

  14. How are pure breeds created?`

    cyphergaiden , 01 April 2018 09:47

      2/4 + 2/4 produces 3/4 or 4/4 if lucky (roughly 50% for each slot, so ~6% to hit a 4/4)

      Then 3/4 + 3/4 higher chance for 4/4 (25%, minus the shuffling)

      Use this tool to search for 3/4+ onyx for example: https://cryptokittydex.com/genes/search?gene%5B4%5D%5BD%5D=r&gene%5B4%5D%5BR1%5D=r&gene%5B4%5D%5BR2%5D=r&for_sale=false

      You can usually pair up some mewtations on other cattribute slots as a bonus.

      noob-breeder , 01 April 2018 10:24

      You will be counting on

      D0 + D0

      One D0 is selected (50%) and the other D0 is shuffled to R1 (25%) and then selected (50%) to get a D0+R1 (2/4)

      That’s 6.25% to make a 2/4. You will likely be broke before you get a pure bred, and the resulting cat will likely be many gen higher.

  25. Race CryptoKitties, win ETH

    phl3x , 29 March 2018 19:19

      Hi everyone! We just launched KittyRace, a DApp that enables CryptoKitty owners to combine skill and chance, and race their kitties for a winner-take-all pot of Ether.

      We built KittyRace to add a new dimension to CryptoKitties gameplay, and see what's possible with the Ethereum blockchain.

      Please check it out and let us know what you think!

      phl3x , 29 March 2018 19:28

      That was fun for about 2 races. Spoiler alert: the game has been "solved" with every entrant having all 4 of the desired traits to make for a "fast" cat.

      carloslucia , 30 March 2018 05:20

      Why don't you change the traits for every few races? That way more people will be involved! Right now its the few kitties with your selected traits that win! Also I suggest making the pool of traits with an advantage larger!

      cryptohiwatari , 31 March 2018 22:59

      I was looking at entering a kitty and searched through mine and I have a particular one I want to enter. But when i hit join it only gives me a selection of 9 of my own kitties to choose from and none of those is the one i want. How do I select a particular one of my kitties?

      lion9327 , 04 April 2018 03:45

      I was also playing/ then spectating you will see the same player won every race

  26. Dealing with the excess?

    TherealTmoney33 , 30 March 2018 02:09

      No longer useful as a breeding kitty? Catatonic kitties are awesome! You can breed them whenever you feel like it and not feel bad, and then in a week they give you a present! [This may be a little tongue in cheek, but I do have an unhealthy appreciation for Catatonic kitties and one week waiting periods.]

      AtAlanfalcon , 30 March 2018 12:59

      you mean some kind of a social welfare for used up kitties?

      joebabana , 30 March 2018 07:03

      You can reclaim all the breeding fee by sending giveBirth transaction. Upon successful giveBirth, breeding fee is transferred to sender of transaction whoever he is. So it's not owned by the CK team. This kind of scheme is needed for few reasons:

      • new kitties appear smoothly from user perspective - you don't have do anything to claim your new borns

      • no one (including kitty owner or CK team) controls when new kitty is actually born. It is import for genetics algorithm to be unpredictable.

      There are couple of discussions on that around or check auto-birther channel in discord for more technical stuff.

      hash_kitty , 30 March 2018 08:53

      The breeding cost goes to the network, not the devs.

      cyphergaiden , 31 March 2018 18:50

  27. 9 gemmed cattributes is that rare? I know its Gen 15, but gem should matter .... RIGHT??

    TherealTmoney33 , 29 March 2018 06:14

      There are many cats that we think they have a price of more than 1 eth, because of X or Y characteristics, but the true is that possible buyers are just in our imagination

      kryptofan , 29 March 2018 14:44

      i sold a 9 gem kitty because it had 9 gems for a good bit. more than most fast gen0's go for. check out discord. there is a buyer who buys these. nice work!

      ddddddjim , 30 March 2018 04:00

      Well, surely it should, but... I have a 8 gemmed (full set, no wild genes) kitty for sale and no one is interested. Hope you'll have a better luck!

      CatCreators , 29 March 2018 13:06

      People want kitties for: 1) breeding 2) selling to breeders later 3) ultra rare low gen 4) fancies

      Anything above gen 5 atm is likely 100% worthless UNTIL a new fancy comes out.

      cyphergaiden , 30 March 2018 03:40

      No one wants these. You should have saved your money unfortunately. I wasted about $150 on cryptokitties that will probably never sell now lol

      Are you looking to play for fun or profit? It is very hard to recoup your costs unless you have quite a bit of Eth to drop at the start AND get lucky with breeds.

    TherealTmoney33 , 29 March 2018 03:58

      12 groups, 32 values in each

      for 8 groups, all values are presented in the cat image and profile

      for wild group, tier0 values (0-15 integer values) are not visible, but mutations(16+) are visible, at least, existing ones - elk and tricolous

      for last 3 groups no visible value hasn't been found yet

      NARW_Bombard , 29 March 2018 04:26

      There are 11 visible in the gene code only 9 are known what they attribute too, most have 8 unless they have elk (only visible wild gene) then they have 9

      mobmen , 29 March 2018 04:30

      You can find a list of all known (and unknown) cattributes / traits at copycats, for example. Cheers.

  32. Crypto kitties use tokens?

    cyphergaiden , 28 March 2018 18:03

      Yes, CryptoKitties use the upcoming non fungible token (NFT) "standard" on the ethereum blockchain - see Awesome CryptoCollectibles for more. And yes, the buy & sell (auction, bid) services are public "independent" contract services - see Awesome CryptoKitties / Contracts for more. Cheers.

      PS: How are cryptokitties stored?

      /// @dev An array containing the Kitty struct for all Kitties in existence. The ID ///  of each cat is actually an index into this array. Note that ID 0 is a negacat, ///  the unKitty, the mythical beast that is the parent of all gen0 cats. A bizarre ///  creature that is both matron and sire... to itself! Has an invalid genetic code. ///  In other words, cat ID 0 is invalid... ;-) Kitty[] kitties;

  34. Physical CryptoKitties

    DanDarden , 27 March 2018 22:21

      So trying to sell person the a wallet with instructions on how to play with a few cats? Might work actually. Could unload a few worthless cats for above market rate (but not too high) 5 bucks for 4 cats? Don't see why not

      cyphergaiden , 28 March 2018 00:56

      Soooo, a none interactive Tamagotchi?

      Dreurmimker , 27 March 2018 23:13

      ownership of kitties is granted by ownership of private key for ethereum address. So you can use existing hardware wallets (e.g. ledgerwallet or trezor) to store keys to your kitties. It would be interesting to see HW implementations specific to CryptoKitties, e.g. if it could have a small display with kitty image or smth, but I don't think there is much demand for that.

      hash_kitty , 28 March 2018 10:55

      Great idea. It's like "casascius kitties".

      Bibo7 , 29 March 2018 01:07

      crypto_bro , 27 March 2018 23:36


      Professa333 , 28 March 2018 09:23

      I'd say it's all about creating new markets with tradeable tokens (for virtual and real goods), that's why I started the Awesome CryptoCollectibiles page to collect more pointers / information. Today trade (virtual) cats, tomorrow trade (real) cars incl. lambos (of course), apartments, etc. It's all about (certified / signed / trusted) open data and open data (micro/web) services (a.k.a. contracts/transactions/functions). Cheers.

      PS: And yes, most crypto (gambling) games (like the initial coin offerings) are scams (that is, money grabbing / get-rich-quick schemes). Compared to CryptoCelebreties or CryptoCountries the CryptoKitties team looks good :-).

      geraldbauer , 28 March 2018 10:43

      more devs and more expansión to make cryptokitties a mainstream blockchain game famous artists are going to make fancies collectors series and they will develop VR and AR on cryptokitties

  36. How on Earth do cryptokitties make sense?

    Brazzi079 , 27 March 2018 22:16

      The same reason why a post stamp can be worth of 75k$ (It’s just a piece of paper after all, right?)


      NARW_Bombard , 27 March 2018 22:26

      I think the fact alone that you are here asking this question shows how CryptoKitties makes sense. The real elephant in the room, as stressed by /u/Ryan_JK, is why in-game items have value.

      As fiat currencies, in-game items can be printed by a central authority - CryptoKitties as tokens on a proper blockchain can´t. It´s a cultural shift if you want to see it that way. CK is for in-game items what Bitcoin has been to fiat currencies.

      I wouldn´t overrate it though - in the end it is also "just" a game. But as I said, the flabbergasted reactions that should better be directed at those centralized entities printing money (but for some reasons are not) are the real "sense" that is going on here.

      artiscience , 28 March 2018 00:01

      Can someone explain how or why there is any difference between cryptokitties, and say, buying/selling unique items or characters on any other game (thinking WoW or Diablo)?

      Blizzard can print off as many in-game items as they want and sell them off. In CK, each cryptokitty is unique and has an identifier on the blockchain.

      Is it like art, where the value can go up or down based on fads or trends?

      Yes, prices are dictated not only by rarity but by demand. You can have a trait that 10k kitties have but everyone wants that trait so it may be more valuable than a trait that only 1k kitties have that no one wants.

      When other blockchain games start, like cryptopuppies or cryptofishies, who is the first person that buys (and pays the fees) the generation 1s and hopes that people want to buy more?

      The people who find it first and decide to invest

      Can someone explain how or why there is any difference between cryptokitties, and say, buying/selling unique items or characters on any other game (thinking WoW or Diablo)?

      Blockchain! Blockchain! Blockchain! The kitties are public data / tokens (on the blockchain) and all contract scripts are public (open source) services (on the blockchain), see https://github.com/openblockchains/awesome-cryptokitties/blob/master/contracts/README.md for a write-up / more commentary.

      OSU_OSU , 27 March 2018 19:35

      IMO, the generations is too high to be valued by anyone ATM. That cat can only produce gen 18 or higher kitties. Having that diamond for the ragdoll is nice, but it really doesn't say all that much IMO.

      If you are buying cats and plan to breed them I'd stay under gen 7

    JamesChiang01 , 27 March 2018 16:05

      Sure, such is the beauty of blockchain. If you create a smart contract that can transfer ERC-721 tokens, then yes!

  40. Can I transfer my cryptokitties to MEW or exchange address?

    JamesChiang01 , 27 March 2018 13:14

      I wouldn't recommend sending your kitties to an exchange wallet, unless they are ERC-721 compliant (they're probably not).

      You can send your kitties to any wallet you have full control over, but exchanges never give you a private key for your wallet. They tend to use centralized wallets.

      If you were to send your kitties to any wallet you do have the private key of, you can usually just interact with the CK smart contracts through myetherwallet. Simply go to https://www.myetherwallet.com/#contracts then select the CryptoKitties Core contract and select the transfer function. If you have one of these wallet access options you should be fine: https://imgur.com/3bkP9ED

    cyphergaiden , 25 March 2018 22:10

      I wasn't going for this style of cat, but I got it. It had less than 9% chance of being created out of the cats I bread together. Is this cat worth anything? Even if it isn't, I think it looks GORGEOUS


      cyphergaiden , 25 March 2018 22:11

      It's definitely a pretty cat!

      Ikol76 , 26 March 2018 01:22

      The patteren is know as ganado. As of right now there are 7,265 of this cat patteren across all generations across all other cattributes


      For my particular patteren color (lemonade), body color (shadowgray), and color (icy), there are 19 across all generation.


      Edit: I pointed out the main traits that dominate it's look. We can drill down further on body type, but this gives a good idea how rare this particular set up is

      cyphergaiden , 26 March 2018 07:17

      nice kitty! ganado is recessive but you can find it fairly cheap at gen1 right now. if you breed it with rascal you might make thunderstruck!

      ddddddjim , 26 March 2018 11:00

      It has value in the sense you can make thunderstruck from it, and use it for a future fancy where Ganado will be necessary. I think lemonade mutates with coffee to make sky blue. Shadowgrey mutates with salmon to make cloudwhite. If you were super lucky you can make a Gen 2 Thunderstruck, Skyblue, Cloudwhite. Now that's a kitty worth a penny ;)

    Ikol76 , 26 March 2018 01:36

      Safe to assume the Chinese bios aren't permanent - it's just for the duration of the Chinese launch. Chinese app is still in beta right now (had a limit of 5k users) so might take a few months to get English gen0s again. Complete speculation though.

      MechlerMX , 25 March 2018 17:03

      I don't think price goes up immediately, demand will only increase when more people join the game, current demand for fancies is quite low, so prices are fairly at the bottom.

      hash_kitty , 25 March 2018 18:34

      Maybe rare combos of mutations in low gen are better than fancies, a Trioculus/Ganado with turtleback/babypuke is now extremely rare and difficult to achieve in gen1 or 2, and no-limits

      'Every time a kitty breeds, its cooldown time increases.' - not always true

      ekwenzu , 24 March 2018 20:16

  51. Fancy Prices?

    cyphergaiden , 25 March 2018 03:21

      yes, generation and number of children matters. If low gen virgin and high gen catatonic are offered for the same price, I would definitely prefer low gen. So if market has offers for low gen fancies, seems that high gens should be sold at lower price (which is true now).

      However breeding is not the main reason to buy fancies - they are mostly bought for collections. And it makes sense to buy high gens for collections, if there is no similar offers for low gens. So as low gen fancies are sold and gone from market, prices for low gen will grow. Main factor for price is "supply and demand" and fancies are good from this point - limited supply by design and demand for them seem to be quite good (comparing to non-fancies).

      hash_kitty , 25 March 2018 11:48

      Lower generation will sell for a lower price, but imo fancy prices will go up in the future.

      Bibo7 , 25 March 2018 17:51

      If generation matters, what's the avg generation of fancies?

      cyphergaiden , 25 March 2018 18:26

      the prices of fancies will go up in value in the coming months but it,s supply and demand right now there isn,t much demand for fancies there are too much stocks on the market

      franckgant , 26 March 2018 15:25

      cyphergaiden , 24 March 2018 16:12

      I heard that hey are working on it but I don't know how far. But the iOS app for China should be done but isn't launched yet.

  60. What are your thoughts on the rate of new fancy cats? Vote on our Twitter poll!

    DERPYBASTARD , 22 March 2018 23:44

      I hope CK won't make a decision based on the poll alone. CK can make a more informed decision by looking at the market data.


      The fancies are not searchable by new players at the moment, hence no sales. How many new players can type "fancy:phuziqaat" into the search bar? Please make a fancy tab and make it easily searchable/discoverable.

      I need the CryptoKittyDex fancy tab to find them, some people bookmark all fancies, or visit 411. Super high friction at the moment.


      Concentration: power players discover the first fancy after hints, that's fine.

      Pure breeding (fancy + fancy = 30%+ chance) to the limit of 200, that's tough for new/casual players to catch up. Imagine a new player spending 0.5 eth and gets nothing after 50 tries, and the limit is reached, do you think this player will ever come back for the next fancy?

      CK should investigate the dynamics of power breeders/farmers, how many wallets make what % of the fancy within how long? Try to introduce balance here. If only the top 5% make a return, the 95% will lose interest in fancy chase because it is not rewarding at all.

      All fancies should be on cooldown 13 (catatonic) no matter their gen imo.


      New trait then immediately a new fancy with that trait.

      Not everyone can afford a Gen0 at 0.3. If CK releases a new fancy with the requirement of the new trait on the same day, the fancy will be tightly controlled by the power players again. Further alienating casual players, and fancy will become a 1% whale game (same 20 players buying and selling to each other, and bob).


      More RNG (this is a suggestion, it doesn't solve the fancy issue)

      If you look at the Bearbrick collectible, which has been around for 15+ years. The way they do fancy is there's a 1/64 or 1/128 chance to get a fancier fancy. For example, Elmo fancy has a 1/64 chance to be a Cookie Monster. That's RNG and rare. https://imgur.com/a/WLO1n

      This is hard to implement code side, but nothing rare is easy.

      (edit: formatting)

      noob-breeder , 23 March 2018 02:24

      I'm not on Twitter. But I would vote for less.

      My thoughts on fancies from most passionately felt to least:

      1. Please please please make the target traits visually complimentary! I realize that this has the downside of potentially making a fancy a) easier to stumble upon and b) easier to put together from existing cats. However, think of all the poor bastard cats left in the aftermath of a fancy hunt! Nobody wants those ugly mutants. At least if the colors coordinated, breeders would be stuck with a bunch of cats that they either a) wanted or b) had a chance of selling. I personally enjoy sitting out the fancy hunt and picking up cheap reject cats with interesting traits. But so many of them are too hideous to touch.

      2. Please make all fancy cats catatonic at birth. This would help quell the dominance of 'fancy factories' without being so draconian as making fancies sterile.

      3. Wild fancy cats are cool. I like that there would be these cats out there that a total noob could stumble upon. Almost to the point where it would be cool to have a fancy that changes trait requirements every time it's found. That way you could only ever find it accidentally. Unicorn cat anyone? And no, this would not violate my first point (visually complimentary traits) because there would be no incentive to try to breed any more of that same trait combination once the cat was found.

      4. While I like the excitement of the fancy hunt, I think it should be done sparingly (once a quarter?). This is a) to keep it special, b) to give us time to recover financially and c) to let us focus on breeding some normal cats with traits we really enjoy.

      dont_hate_scienceguy , 23 March 2018 08:02

      The real problem with fancy cats is that they aren't that fancy. This severely limits the fanciness, imo.

      If you look at a page of regular cats, they're all completely unique and interesting in their own ways: for good or bad

      BUT... if you look at a page of fancies, they are almost all exactly the same: see what I mean?

      Would it be possible for fancy cattributes to be drawn like regular cattributes so that we have unique kitties that have rare traits that are based on the "fancy" combinations? (Like wings or vampire fangs/widow's peaks or spaceships or sailor suits, just not all the same.)

      mistersplice , 23 March 2018 22:48

      yes fancies are collectors kitties less is better for the market.There isn,t any market for one new fancy every week there are plenty of the old fancies that are still not breeded and plenty fancies that are not sold.There should be one new fancy once every 2 week less fancies will bring more value to cryptokitties

      franckgant , 22 March 2018 23:59

      ...scarcity = rarity ... ;))

      McDuff_71 , 23 March 2018 00:27

  61. Mewtations?

    cyphergaiden , 23 March 2018 01:40

      Basically, when you breed cats that have two traits that can mutate, there's a chance that the child will have a new trait as a result of the mutation (there's some randomness involved). Here you can check how it works: https://cryptokitties411.com/2018/01/09/mutations/

      Sb0g , 23 March 2018 02:51

      Mewtations happen when a child expresses a trait not expressed in either parent. It can happen a few different ways a. A recessive gene passes into the child and becomes dominant. b. Two gene pairings create a new gene (see : https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1ShiBKSglFAB2vJe4Uow3iF09FBVq6ZAaOzTCIECf4iA/htmlview ). c. A combination of both a recessive passes into Dominance and then mutates because of gene pairing.

      mobmen , 23 March 2018 03:29

      If I may add something - I added a mewtation / mutation pairs (16x2) chart to the traits page at copycats:

      Tier I    Tier II   Tier III  Tier IIII  Tier V  (1-g)     (h-p)     (q-t)     (u,v)      (w) 1+2 = h   h+i = q   q+r = u   u+v = w 3+4 = i   j+k = r   s+t = v 5+6 = j   m+n = s 7+8 = k   o+p = t 9+a = m b+c = n d+e = o f+g = p 

      The gene code is in kai / base32, that is, 32 values for traits running from 1,2,3,...a,b,c...x (32 altogheter). Happy gene mixing. Cheers.

      PS: The tier (I,II,III) just means that tier II are mewtations of tier I genes, tier III are mewtations for tier II genes and so on. Only tier I get "released" into the wild in gen 0 kitties - all other tiers are mewtations over time (generations).

      Gen 0, virgin, cheap, HODL till November 2018 when there will be no more released they will spike in price (IF at this point in time anyone does remember cryptokitties)

    geraldbauer , 21 March 2018 23:34

      Hello, I've put together a timeline for traits and another for fancies / exclusives. What's different from the official timeline / updates all-in-one page? The traits include the type (fur, eye shape, pattern, ...) and gene code in kai / base 32 (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,a,b,c ... x) and the fancies / exclusive include limits (e.g. 888, 1 000, 2 000, etc.).

      Freakitties apparently fixed it in his fork. Works for me at least

      Tm1337 , 21 March 2018 20:08

      Yeah, I've been having troubles too. I tried to download a different scanner and was getting the same issues. I can get all the overall stats on the side, but the hover feature just keeps showing a kitty. I'm wondering if it's a communication issue between CK and the apps...

      uxbecks , 21 March 2018 20:03

      On https://kitty-bargains.herokuapp.com/ you can find kitties with rare cattributes, it is not an extension though and it costs a little bit of ether for up to date data :(

      ennis_guy , 21 March 2018 19:09

      Oh yea I have a heartbreaking story about a gen1 violet kitty.

      Bought one back in late december for 0.05 Eth. Bred it a few times to make a gen2 wolfgrey kitty. Sold both of these for barely any profit.

      A few weeks later I found out gen1 violet is super hard to make. The market prices had already quadrupled at least by that time. There are only 60 gen1 violet kitties to this day.

      Now I don't sell cats anymore without looking into their rarity. Lesson learned :-(

  73. Fancy Kitties

    cyphergaiden , 21 March 2018 10:01

      Hey there!

      As far as we're aware fancy releases are fairly irregular, and even when they are released it usually takes awhile for the community to figure them out, which adds even more randomness to the equation.

      Regional fancies can be bred by anyone, good luck and have fun! :)

      Kitttyverse , 21 March 2018 10:11

      Is there a schedule for when these come about or is it just random?

      I've put together a timeline for fancies / exclusives incl. limits (e.g. 888, 1 000, 2000, ...) that gives you an overview about the past schedule all the way back to beginning (genesis). Cheers.

    cyphergaiden , 21 March 2018 01:17

      geraldbauer , 21 March 2018 10:33

      kryptofan , 21 March 2018 01:36

      I think there are some genes that dominate others in the same category, in the same gene list. For example: cyan and sapphire are eye colors. If you breed two cats with those two traits as dominate, I believe that one has a higher chance of taking the eye color than the other. I'm looking for that information

    JessAnd1 , 20 March 2018 18:23

      franckgant , 20 March 2018 19:05

      I believe the thought behind it is to show how much of a global market kitties really is. I like the idea of each country/continent getting their own. My kits have a thing for Latinas 😋. Plus reading the same bios get boring after awhile and you stop paying attention.

They seem to be taking over.

      Hey, do you have a tool to show the cat if I provide as input the string of DNA??? Now do you know guys how many possibles visual outcomes has a breeding operation?? I have this: (4 x 3 x 2 x 1) x 2 x 8

      So 8 traits, by 2 (sire and matron) by the combination of each gen 4! ... total: 384 possibles CK. I don't know what the 3 unknown genes are neither the wild thing. So with those traits the total is 4! x 2 x 12 = 576. (I omited the mewtations maybe is (5 x 3 x 2 x 1) x 2 x 12 = 720

  84. *Fixed: Table for Momo-Chan & Negato Valuation by gen and 'virtue'

    ekwenzu , 17 March 2018 21:46

      momo-chans have more virgins but more of those virgins are higher generation than negatos

      also, this is just a theory since I have not look at it that closely yet, but it appears that more negatos were bred from normal cats vs more momo-chans were bred from other momo-chans

      now which ones are more valuable - 'purebred' or bred from two normal kitties - up for a debate, on one hand the latter is much harder but others would say ninja parents look cooler - beholders eye and all that I suppose

      ekwenzu , 17 March 2018 21:48

  87. New to Crypto. and kitties

    xpwnx4 , 17 March 2018 07:22

      You get the price you listed the cat for sire in eth, minus a siring fee equal to 3.75% of the sire amount, minus network transaction fee associated with putting your cat up for sire. This is all only if someone chooses your kitty to be a sire.

      You should make sure your cat has valuable and sought after genes before putting it up for sire. Otherwise, if you list a random cat with common genes, it's highly unlikely people will pay you to mate with your cat.

      In general, it's very difficult to make profits in this game. There's too many players looking to sell their cats, of which more and more are being created all the time. So they do not hold their value very well. Would not recommend this game unless you are prepared to drop money into it purely for the joy of the gaming experience, with no intention of earning an adequate return on your invested money. You'll likely walk away disapointed if you're looking to make money here.

    ennis_guy , 16 March 2018 13:39

      Same problem, I found a wild gen 7 dominant, but because I was interested in gen0, 1 or 2 I had to search thru many kitties most of them with no sales auction, It took me a lot of time.

      kryptofan , 16 March 2018 17:24

      You can use the kitties dataset import it into an (offline) SQLite database (using the kitty copycats tool) and than use SQL to query as you like. Example:

      SELECT * FROM kitties WHERE gen IN (1,2) AND wild='3' 

      (Update) The next kitty command line update will include a new (built-in) query builder. For your kitty search use:

      kitty wild=3 gen=1 gen=2    # or kitty wild=3 gen=1,2        # or kitty w=3 g=1,2             # with shortcuts (w=wild, g=gen)

    nigerianprincessa , 15 March 2018 23:10

      The future is now. My 10 and 12 year olds have eth accounts. For the past month they've wanted allowance in eth so they can breed their cats. So, your point is relevant.

      dont_hate_scienceguy , 16 March 2018 00:27

      I really don't think there's a huge security risk here. My kids have email addresses and that could allow much worse. I suppose this simply requires the same vigilance on my part. Honestly, my kids would be thrilled to get a free cat from somebody. They would just change the name.

      Really, I think this possibility of pranking people with cats is a funny one.

      It could also brings up the possibility of cat-vertising (sending cats for marketing purposes) which could be a possibility for corporations at some point. Febreeze cats anyone?

      dont_hate_scienceguy , 16 March 2018 01:28

      Technically it is not possible to restrict transfer of ERC721 tokens by recipient. Issue is that unlike traditional transfer (which include sending on one side and accepting on the other side), ERC721 token (read cryptokitty) transfer is just rewriting owner address in smart contract. Recipient of the token is not actively involved in the process anyhow, so cannot prevent it "receiving" it. On the one hand it gives you uncensored transactions (which are so loved by cryptopunks), on the other hand issue that you described.

      On a positive side ERC721 is just a set of numbers, so it is really hard to harass anyone with those (unless you are super sensible mathematician). Kitty names which can be offensive indeed exist only the CK site, so it is work for CK team to filter and remove those. Your concern is valid, but as others stated, currently there are much easier cheaper and effective ways to offense people, so it is unlikely someone would harass you using kitties. Also I find it is really smart marketing move to advertise smth by sending kitties (like airdrops of ERC20 token to get people interested).

      hash_kitty , 16 March 2018 17:49

      we should coin the term now - 'CAT BOMBING'

      nigerianprincessa , 16 March 2018 03:19

      Well, anyone can send an e-mail or call a phone number and say anything they want to say. It's still up to a parent to make sure they are responsible about what their children are exposed to and have access to, right? This doesn't mean that harassment is right, or even legal. But it isn't your e-mail provider's job to make sure you only receive nice e-mails. That said, some phone providers and some e-mail providers probably do offer some kind of filtering or blacklist features, so it might be interesting to discuss what sort of technological solution might be possible - but really I'm not sure this hypothetical you've laid out is not a societal/behavioral problem that requires a societal/behavioral solution.

      The game is amazing, though the breeding cost is a little too much imo, I'm not complaining as of now but I read somewhere that as ethereum scales, breeding cost will go down and that will be unfair. I have no problem that earlier the cost was cheap but the fact that the game could become cheaper in some years is unsettling. :( I am here to enjoy and if I'm lucky to make some profit too, quite a loss I'm having.

      MayorAdamWest1 , 15 March 2018 01:23

      Crazy, I just saw this cat shortly after it was born and before it was on the market...

      dystodesi , 15 March 2018 02:10

      It's the color that does it. Dragonfruit is a gene that so far has only been found as a recessive gene in Gen-0 cats, and from what I can tell the earliest it mutated was Gen-2. It's also literally the only Dragonfruit cat that the owner has let go of. Still, 5 ETH is a lot of space jewels, no doubt.

  97. Rare Artwork for Cryptokitties!

    JamesGatz_thehomie , 14 March 2018 15:36

      “Sure, an impoverished enthusiast might make a digital copy of the image and set it as her desktop, but without the token, she doesn’t own an original. She can’t sell the image, because the image itself is not rare. It’s the token that’s rare. The Ethereum community has agreed to treat ownership of the token, not simple possession of the image, as a marker of property rights. Everyone gets to use and enjoy the image — that’s just the nature of the internet. But the token gives the holder a right to exclude others from asserting ownership and in turn, a right to the profits that result from the asset’s appreciation.”

      While the profit potential is not what interests me personally about all of this, I still find that passage immensely interesting. (Full disclosure, I am a member of the KittyHats team though not a Dada artist. I did draw that beret though.)

      AtAlanfalcon , 14 March 2018 15:46

      I wish I had some spare kitty monies to buy all these artwork; they are SO beautiful! <3 I love the collaboration with Dada and getting to support actual artists IRL. What a wonderful addition to the CK game! :D

      uxbecks , 14 March 2018 18:21

      Love the idea of personalizing our cats with clothing, items, and now unique collectable art! You guys are brilliant. Keep it up!!

      ParanoidLunatic , 14 March 2018 19:37

      Beautiful original. We should expand to Saatchi Art to open our kitty horizons.

  101. Interesting Bio question

    Neekyme41 , 14 March 2018 22:37

      Just guessing, but it could possibly be that its parents or grandparents were born on the Chinese market and that gets passed on just like the genes? maybe it was a recessive.

      MayorAdamWest1 , 15 March 2018 01:26

      if you look at the actual bios of the parents it would suggest they are from UK and India

      maybe adopted from China? is it a girl?

      nigerianprincessa , 15 March 2018 07:22

      barruntado , 14 March 2018 11:06

      What does this mean?

      As far as I am aware there are no Gen 1 purebred gerbils in the game and there never will be. Maybe I'm confused about your question. What exactly do you mean by a "Gen 1 purebred gerbil"? Can you link to an example?

      playfulexistence , 14 March 2018 23:42

      120 pure bred Gerbil for sale now. Just need to sift through the listings to find a gen1 that fits your budget

      I would donate a cat to an account that promised to use proceeds for something good

      1234qwert , 13 March 2018 18:36

      I also already thought about this, how the game really could help (small and big) cats. I would like to get a Big Cats series as Fancies... snow leopards <3

      Or some special traits representing different cats. For example claws on the paws. Or big serval ears...

      dystodesi , 13 March 2018 22:47

      hash_kitty , 13 March 2018 12:23

      great news but it,s going to take a few months for cryptokitties to pick up in china but the game could be a big hit overthere

      franckgant , 13 March 2018 16:31

      Well, the whales market is not a 'black market' or illegal. At the moment I don't know anything about 'stolen' cats. We have to remember that a CK is an ethereum token. These tokens have a lot of potencial to build any kind of applications. Now I prefer going with the official site to trade cats.

  111. Something shady seems to be going on...

    kittynonsense , 13 March 2018 10:56

      I wrote an article to try to help players still interact with the Smart Contract and be able to perform actions even if the front end of the website is down: https://medium.com/@cryptokittyhawk/playing-cryptokitties-on-the-blockchain-b15ceb6269d7

      Because this game is on the blockchain, it never stops even if the website is necessarily down for maintenance (every website goes down for maintenance) so the best thing you can do is the same thing the whales do, which is spend the time to learn how to use the blockchain directly. They've invested not only a ton of money, but an incredible number of hours in learning about the market and every tip and trick, so of course they use them all. The cool thing about Cryptokitties in my opinion is that any one of these players is almost always willing to share with you exactly what they're doing and why! Watch JiHoZ stream and he tells you his exact strategy. He will link you to the tools you need to buy kitties the way he does.

      If using the blockchain doesn't appeal to you, then there are still other solutions out there like https://opensea.io/assets/cryptokitties and other third party marketplaces. Again, because this game is on the blockchain, these marketplaces continue to function even when the front end website is down for maintenance. Let me know if there's any questions you have about all this or any way I or others in the community can help! I've spent literally hundreds of hours (I'd estimate a minimum of 50 hours a week since mid December) getting to know and understand this stuff, and as with building KittyCalc.co to help spread that knowledge and share it with the community, I'm absolutely here to help anyone learn whatever they want to learn.

      AtAlanfalcon , 13 March 2018 11:12

      Once gen0s are on sales auction it cannot be normally stopped or cancelled. Also it may seem shady, but I am sure it is just an unfortunate coincidence. It is most likely that buyer was using a script to interact directly with the contract, so downtime did not affect him. In fact, if you can buy directly from contract site maintenance is a great time to buy on auction - for obvious reasons there are less buyers at that time. I can also imagine that some shady player could DDOS CK site to knock other players out of auctions, but I believe we are not at that stage yet.

      So as /u/AtAlanfalcon pointed out - best thing you can do is to learn how to buy from the contract. So you do depend on site availability, which is really not great lately. But it is really hard technical task to keep it synced and running under heavy load - so I would not expect situation to change soon. You can start by using myetherwallet and etherscan - there was a tutorial on that somewhere around.

      hash_kitty , 13 March 2018 11:50

      Opensea.io/assets/cryptokitties is the way to go when the site wont let you buy

      Slabmason710 , 13 March 2018 17:29

      Of course...as soon as I post to Reddit I refresh and the CK site and it’s back up. Who bought it...one of the whales.

      C’mon CK...you need to figure this shit out because that’s just straight up unacceptable.

They need to create a story that people are interested in, like advertising the 888 kitty along with the app. It'll probably get that press when the app is fully launched then you'll see it everywhere. Late night weekend shows are always late to the party, it starts with the news and twitter.

  115. gen774 kitty? How is that possible?

    decentraal , 13 March 2018 10:17

      Owner is trying to reach gen1000

      kryptofan , 13 March 2018 14:45

      50-60 eth + a lot of patience and dedication )

      hash_kitty , 13 March 2018 10:32

  116. Anyone else experiencing slow CK website?

    jaywalholl , 13 March 2018 08:16

      DB slowed down to a halt, so we are doing some maintenance on it to get it back up as soon as possible 👍

      flockonus , 13 March 2018 10:04

      same here, api.cryptokitties.co responds slowly or timeout, so kitties not displayed in My Kitties/Market Place

      hash_kitty , 13 March 2018 08:30

      yep ;)

      decentraal , 13 March 2018 08:34

  117. How to Make ETH in CK and Why Fancy Breeding is a Race to the Bottom

    glitterchoke , 13 March 2018 00:32

      axiom zen is doing great with cryptokitties but some players spent huge amounts of eth on cryptokitties it,s going to be hard for them to make a profit

      franckgant , 13 March 2018 01:31

      Another way: Buying gen0s at low price (under 0.2 eth) and holding for the 2019 scarcity times... I agree with your ideas about the fancy economics, for example a fancy of 4 traits: in order to have chance of success we need a couple of 3/4 of that traits. Creating the 3/4 cats from zero, is very expensive task: We need 4 initials cats to build each 3/4. Usually only fancies of gen 4,5,6 have good prices (more than 1 eth), gen 7,8,9 (under .5), so the 4 'founders' for the 3/4 has to be gen 0 to gen 3 or 4. Only people with more than 200 cats have all the ingredients ready or people full of high gen cats

      kryptofan , 13 March 2018 02:09

      Oh, and Axiom Zen makes their ETH by taking a % of every transaction. So, the more breeding and selling the more ETH they make.

  118. What is your least favorite Cattribute?

    matteblackale , 13 March 2018 02:24

      I was just thinking about this...! I equally dislike saycheese, alien, and serpent. tho my thought is always: KILL IT WITH FIRE, KILL IT WITH FIRE ;)

      glitterchoke , 13 March 2018 02:28

      Spangled: Cats look kind of sick

      kryptofan , 13 March 2018 02:47

      I think many traits linked to fancies might end up being on this list. you grow to hate seeing the same (wrong) traits pop out. i think it's probably bad for certain cat traits overall...

      glitterchoke , 13 March 2018 02:34


      nightporter , 13 March 2018 03:13

      Totes basic, amur, Ragdoll, Selkirk, Sandalwood. I've owned them, I still own them and I hate them.

  119. Bad timing

    duuren , 13 March 2018 00:17

      You think it's bad for crypto? Most ethtraders complain that new ico's suck ether out of the market. I would think a China ico would do quite well. I'd try to get on the whitelist!

      dont_hate_scienceguy , 13 March 2018 10:43

  120. Is it possible to buy a kitty "manually" or directly through the smart contract? (Without the UI)

    hackedieter , 12 March 2018 18:07

      Yes, it is but you have to use the CryptoKittieSales contract, not the CryptoKittiesCore contract, and the Function is "bid".

      weareallfungi , 12 March 2018 18:39

      Yep. You sure can.

      gacbmmml , 12 March 2018 23:59

  121. Etherbots/WorldOfEther/Ethercraft - Is anyone worried about alt-games?

    ALB269 , 12 March 2018 08:02

      Your crystal ball would show you that etherbots is an endless hole of money, have any etherbots sold for 150eth? Do they have heaps of fan created content? Do they have legit partnerships? Do they have derpy? Theses and many other questions will need to be answered before anyone can judge.

      pirahnatsunami66 , 12 March 2018 08:45

      yes too many games but cryptokitties is the best game a lot of crypto games will flop cryptokitties will go up in value along with cryptopunks the first cryptocollectables concept on the blockchain

      franckgant , 12 March 2018 16:37

      But what about crypto soccer? Rabona.me launched yesterday too

      SavannaZeigler , 12 March 2018 17:31

      I am not worried about new games. Actually, this is the best way to increase popularity among all of them and compare which ones are the better. Cryptokitties will last forever as it was the first one and people love cats. Actually, I am so building a game. I am a soccer fan and decided to build a prediction game for the World Cup with also ERC 721 tokens. The name is www.cryptocup.io. The most interesting thing, is that you participate for a pot made by the users who decide to buy the ticket to participate

      I love ethereum games, and hope all of them keep growing. My 4 cats increased around 20% in value

      fgoldberg1 , 12 March 2018 21:58

  122. What's up with the Chinese kitties?

    slickd0g , 12 March 2018 07:23

      It's only been 4 days since Chinese kitty's appeared and what's wrong with Chinese kitty's? Are you a kittyist?

      mobmen , 12 March 2018 08:02

      yes there is a lot of marketing going on with china it,s a huge market but it,s going to be hard for the game to pick up in china maybe axiom zen should also market the game in japan korea and western europe

      franckgant , 12 March 2018 16:32

      I like it. Hope there will be more bios in different languages. I already like my kitty saying "Guten tag!"... although it should be "Guten Tag!".

      dystodesi , 12 March 2018 22:01

      Nothing wrong other than I don’t speak mandarin and can’t read their descriptions.

      Hi Everyone,

      This is an interview with Mack Flavelle one of the founders of CryptoKitties where he discusses the origins of the game and everything Cryptokitties. Thanks to /u/twitchtvbitcoinlouie for hosting the interview

      Topics Discussed:

      • Origins of CryptoKitties
      • Possible VR in Cryptokitties
      • Kitty Sink
      • Collectibles

      ChuckFresco , 12 March 2018 03:21

      Great job chuck!

      twitchtvbitcoinlouie , 12 March 2018 09:55

      great interview yes axiom zen should team up with others Companies for AR and VR contents that would really be cool. So much possibilities about the new fancies it,s great they are plenty new directions new fancies can take.All the news fancies are really great. and yes cryptopunks are really amazing cryptocollectables nobody knows about the concept they are so cheap

      franckgant , 12 March 2018 21:56

  124. New! (Free, Open) SQL Database Schema / Tables for CryptoKitties for Easy Stats / Queries / Analytics and More - Tables incl. kitties, genes, traits, ...

    geraldbauer , 11 March 2018 23:15

      Hi, I think that's a great initiative, totally support it. I run my own DB with CK data so here it its schema https://1drv.ms/u/s!Ai4P81xJXMTQa0E-aKVasF5ONZc

      Few comments on your schema: 1) May add extra tables for market analytics: auctions and owners. So one may query sales data and check kitties distribution among players. 2) May add some extra fields to kitties: owner, children count, next action at - those are important in some queries.

      In my DB, I keep genes as binary(32) and that's not the best approach for querying on genes - so like your approach with queryable genes and traits, but not sure if it is a big overhead for storage.

      The most difficult thing is to keep DB with the chain, I have limited resource dedicated to DB, so cannot use very aggressive sync. I use following approach: have a script running 24/7 on schedule (every 10-20 mins), script reads new events from the CK smart contracts and push them (with bulk inserts) to DB without pre-processing (those tables are in upper part of diagram). Once events are imported, script launches few stored procedures to "parse" event data and insert new rows to Kitties, Auctions and Owners tables (lower part of diagram). Then I can query those tables easier. This approach works quite stable and does not consume resources, event import can be more aggressive but not faster than once per minute in my experience.

      hash_kitty , 12 March 2018 16:36


      I've put together a (free, open source) SQL database schema / tables for CryptoKitties. Still early and suggestions more than welcome on how to make it better, easier, faster, etc. The tables incl. kitties (of course), genes, traits and more. The idea is to make queries easy (thus, all 48 genes of a kitty in a "flat" genes tables along with all others).

      Example SQL query to find all kitties with two traits - let's use the trait savannah (fur) with the id 0 and the trait tiger (pattern) with the id 33:

      SELECT id FROM  kitties           WHERE body_id = 0 AND pattern_id = 33 

      Find the database schema source (will generate SQL flavors for SQLite, PostgreSQL, etc.) at the Copycats project. Cheers. Prost.

      geraldbauer , 11 March 2018 23:22

  125. Hello I'm new to crypto kitties and my transactions keep failing. What can I do about this?

    DemonyxCG , 11 March 2018 21:45

      Which function are you calling? Check transaction input data. If you call bid for CryptoKittiesSalesAuction contract, most likely that kitty is already sold (it may be not reflected on the site) or transaction value is not enough to buy.

      You can check actual price here: https://etherscan.io/address/0xb1690c08e213a35ed9bab7b318de14420fb57d8c#readContract. Enter kitty id next to getCurrentPrice and click query - you will get price in wei, 0 means that kitty is sold.

      hash_kitty , 11 March 2018 22:00

  126. So was the china launch a bust? Gen0's keep dropping with nobody buying

    xboxerdude , 11 March 2018 17:52

      So far it's just a beta release in China, Taiwan, and Hong Kong but limited to 5000 iOS users. Not fully released in the app store and then we still have android and the rest of the world. Patience is a virtue unless you enjoy panic selling :)

      Isa_ak , 11 March 2018 19:21

      Buy gen0s, after nov/2018 each gen0 will be priceless, maybe 3 or 4 eth. Last time cryptowhales waited until the price was under 0.1 eth. So I think in less than 48 hours another whale is going to buy many gen0s

      kryptofan , 11 March 2018 18:46

      yes people could be stuck with huge stocks of cryptokitties for months it,s not going to be easy for cryptokitties to pick up in china and elsewhere but the app could be a game changer for the game long term

      franckgant , 11 March 2018 20:08

      What's the best website to check the prices of recent trades of cats of a certain generation?

      Zyj , 13 March 2018 11:49

      Maybe an opportunity to buy on the dip?

      boom603 , 11 March 2018 18:15

  127. Weird Ideas about recessive genes and cooldown time

    kryptofan , 11 March 2018 19:04

      making catatonic cats fast again will lead to the fast population growth and fast inflation, so cats with generation 1 and higher will cost almost nothing (as it is now).

      On the other hand when gen 0 are not produced any more and all of them become catatonic (at some point), production of gen 1 will decrease significantly and price for those will go up if demand remains. Then same thing happens to gen 2 and so on. Production for lower generation will decrease and value will move to higher generation. So I would say that economy of a game is well thought and limited population is growth is important aspect and not be changed.

      glitterchoke , 11 March 2018 17:38

      This tool is BEAUTIFUL. This provide another dimension to ck. I tested many of my cats. Just I would like to know how to differentiate the mewtations from family jewels in this tool.

      kryptofan , 11 March 2018 18:53

      Overwatch_Falcon , 11 March 2018 07:17

      Zyj , 13 March 2018 11:50

  130. Full set of Family Jewels (all 8) - how rare is it?

    CatCreators , 11 March 2018 10:03

      if you could get all the jewels to match that would be cool. like 8 diamonds or 8 gilded. im not too sure if people care much about family jewels yet other than diamonds and gilded. I make 8 diamond kittys and its a really niche market so i dont imagine 8 jewel cats to be much of a large market.

      Slabmason710 , 11 March 2018 10:11

      I think that family jewells add value to a cat. Now Mewtations are really serious thing: Diamonds are priceless, Gilded are ok. Amethyts and lapis looks good in your cats. All of this are tools to evaluate a particular cat. Try to find similars cats like yours and try to sell the thing for a price like 1 Ether for 1 month just to see what happen.

      rocketleaguebr0 , 10 March 2018 22:41

      Amazing job. Just a question: The notation is binary or Kai? So for the '1', in Kai is '00000' and for axiom zen is '00001'.

      kryptofan , 11 March 2018 03:34

  132. axiom zen did a great job on the new fancies they are all great any thoughts?

    franckgant , 10 March 2018 23:01

      there are so many different of them.. too many. sorry.

      Asgeisk , 11 March 2018 01:23

      ...too many too soon...encouraging for the value of our low gen high value trait cats though ;))...dragon cat (888) and the 88 dog cats the exception and the most collectible out of the bunch (imo)...we have cats in circulation with traits in the general pop that have far fewer brethren than 88 or 250/500/1000/2000 and imo therein lies near term/long term value...have fun -we await ;)))

    _Hnnng_ , 10 March 2018 19:59

      It depends which kitties you have, as it costs 0.008 eth every time you breed you can sometimes buy a kitty cheaper.

      nightporter , 10 March 2018 21:52

      IMO I would read up on (https://cryptokitties411.com/home/) before you start investing and spending ETH on "accumulating more kitties".

      This is an interview with Elsa and Layne from the CryptoKitties team where they discuss their roles in the team and everything you would like to know about Fancies. Thanks to /u/twitchtvbitcoinlouie for hosting the interview

      Topics Discussed:

  135. The REAL rules to win in collectibles in the long term.

    AleknaJul , 09 March 2018 20:17

      With every new Fancy... old, supposedly useless, traits become valuable again. My useless bearded calicool didn't sell at 0,005 for quite a while, but since the latest fancy they are sold at multiple 5. It's all in the combinations, common traits today will be scarce tomorrow (aka months). I think that's some unique daring fun part of CK. Take care all

      veselyr , 10 March 2018 00:49

      yes you a right low id cryptokitties up to 10000 are going to go up in value.right now market is slow and eth price is down investors should buy up all the stock available for cheap before the launch of the app in china and the rest of the world

      franckgant , 09 March 2018 20:28

      I agree, however I would like to add that the 'Date' a coin was minted or an Auto Produced, or the Date a Paper, Ticket or Stamp was printed is of utmost importance and currently overlooked by most of the community, as I am sure the first Inverted Jenny was in 1918.

      boom603 , 09 March 2018 23:11

      How about this pair?

      Gen99 Momo-Chan + Gen99 Negato?

      You are looking for kitty411.com and Jody’s awesome posts

      NARW_Bombard , 10 March 2018 04:39

      The point of the game is to buy a cat, breed it with another cat to get a rarer cat that you sell for more ethereum. Cats have cattriubutes, some are worth more than others, the bad ones could be worth more in the future if they are needed to make a fancy or a rare cattribute. Look for kitties with Mewtations or a few Gems, I personally try and make new cattributes and make the cats people are going to need for the fancies i.e. 3/4 Lion (googly manx starstruck royalblue) or 4/5 Fortune (swampgreen calicool harbourfog beard sapphire).

      If you want more info on cattributes check out https://kittycalc.co/traits/ It's a little out of date rn but it'll give you a basic idea on where to start. Reading the reddit posts help too. Good Luck 👌😁

      Devs shut this down. Now an account has to have a cat before it can like other cats. There were bots that opened new accounts and liked cats...over and over and over again. The cats on the most liked page have not changed since mod so I think like bots are officially dead

      wait wait wait...I think I know what's going on here. Alan just photoshopped that search feature into My Kitties so we'd all freak out and ask him how he did it, and then the developers would realize how desperately we all want it, and then they'd make it for us. right???

      In that case, let's just fill up this thread with a ton of requests, shall we? Because I want to search my kitties! WHO'S WITH ME?!!!

      that doesn't mean they were bred in China......That means in the virtual world of CK the kitty is "from" China and has a Mandarin bio. The red writing just signifies that it has a Mandarin bio. There are many many westerns that are breeding and producing cats with red writing. Heck I even made lions kitties and they have red writing and I am from Colorado.

  151. Kai notation, missing oportunity

    kryptofan , 08 March 2018 14:11

      The official name of the notation is base58 but the guy who introduced it is called Kai. Base58 is slightly different from base64 as it leaves out a few characters to avoid human error. In base58 the following are left out: 0, O, I (capital i), l (lowercase L), + and /.

      DERPYBASTARD , 08 March 2018 16:26

      It makes sense that developers are using hex notation not kai for fancies. Kai is "unofficial" and easier for people to read so you don't mix 0-o 1-l. I would let them coexist as they now. I guess people who try to breed fancies in advance, should understand the risk because all assumptions on fancy traits may go wrong. I myself totally failed few times on that, but I don't blame kai ) Maybe just keep in mind that devs not using kai next time.

      hash_kitty , 08 March 2018 14:42

      If it helps - over at the copycats and the awesome cryptokitties pages I always include this cheat sheet / quick reference for kai:

      Kai (Base32) Notation

      |Kai|Binary |Num|Kai|Binary |Num|Kai|Binary |Num|Kai|Binary |Num| |---|-------|---|---|-------|---|---|-------|---|---|-------|---| | 1 | 00000 | 0 | 9 | 01000 | 8 | h | 10000 |16 | q | 11000 |24 | | 2 | 00001 | 1 | a | 01001 | 9 | i | 10001 |17 | r | 11001 |25 | | 3 | 00010 | 2 | b | 01010 | 10| j | 10010 |18 | s | 11010 |26 | | 4 | 00011 | 3 | c | 01011 | 11| k | 10011 |19 | t | 11011 |27 | | 5 | 00100 | 4 | d | 01100 | 12| m | 10100 |20 | u | 11100 |28 | | 6 | 00101 | 5 | e | 01101 | 13| n | 10101 |21 | v | 11101 |29 | | 7 | 00110 | 6 | f | 01110 | 14| o | 10110 |22 | w | 11110 |30 | | 8 | 00111 | 7 | g | 01111 | 15| p | 10111 |23 | x | 11111 |31 | 

      Note: The digit-0 and the letter-l are NOT used in kai (same as in base 58).

      PS: And yes, kai is base-32 - it uses 5-bit, that is 25 = 32 (digits from 0 to 31). In Ruby a conversion looks like:

       ALPHABET = "123456789abcdefghijkmnopqrstuvwx"  BASE     = ALPHABET.length   ## 32 chars/letters/digits   # Converts a base10 integer to a base32 string.  def encode( num )     buf = String.new     while num >= BASE        mod = num % BASE        buf = ALPHABET[mod] + buf        num = (num - mod)/BASE     end     ALPHABET[num] + buf   end

      so does this mean the gene calculators are wrong?

      xboxerdude , 08 March 2018 20:26

  152. Does the gene calculator lie? -Ganado + Norwegian Forrest-

    ALB269 , 09 March 2018 00:20

      Norwegian Ganado is the bomb dot com, but there’s a difference between a website providing a subjective cuteness rating and a kitty having value (and being easily sold!) on the marketplace. Cuteness/aesthetics is just one factor, and probably the least important between the big three factors of utility, scarcity, and appearance. Wait for the forest or ganado fancy to appear and then be glad you have some great kitties ready to offer up to kick off that market.

      Also, people cannot buy your kitties if they have a rising auction price unless they happen to use huge gas prices and get lucky. Don’t do that even the game lets you. (The transaction fails because by the time it goes through the blockchain process the selling price of the kitty is too high for the amount of ETH sent with the bid.) So even if people wanted your kitties at those prices, they probably couldn’t even buy.

      Good luck, and remember not to rely on any tool to tell you what to do. Don’t smash your TV just because you have a hammer that tells you it’s good at hitting things. Look at the market and your budget and your priorities and make your own choices in the game! :-)

      WeAllMagic , 09 March 2018 00:43

      Such a perfect combo! One day people will realize it and pay decent prices for these kitties :-) Not outrageous prices, but 0.015 seems reasonable for most of these Norwegian Sass Ganados :-) Have you seen Roseheart, my perfect Club💯 kitty? https://www.cryptokitties.co/kitty/507300

      She will never be reasonably priced, haha.

      AtAlanfalcon , 09 March 2018 03:48

      boom603 , 09 March 2018 13:53

      Have you registered for an account? That’s the first step. Then share your profile url here. You will still need SOME ETH to do anything with your cat, even just to sell it or breed it with a sire, so get registered on an exchange where you can buy some ETH as well.

      WeAllMagic , 08 March 2018 21:35

      How about making smart contract for collective buy of 888? So people would send some ether to the contract and when contract has enough to buy, it does. 888 is owned by the contract and ones who send ether own "shares" of that, so they decided what to do with it next.

    geraldbauer , 07 March 2018 22:13

      FYI: I've put together a new (free, open source) command line tool (use Ruby and $ gem install copycats) to install.

      Kitty Genes Reader / Report

      Pass in the id (e.g. 1, 43, etc.) of the kitty to print a genes report. Example:

       $ kitty 1 


       # Kitty #1   genes (kai): ccac 7787 fa7f afaa 1646 7755 f9ee 4444 6766 7366 cccc eede   Fur (Genes 0-3)   |Gene| Binary |Kai (Tier)| Trait      |    |  |----|--------|----------|------------|----|  | 0  | 01101  | e (I)    | **sphynx** | d  |  | 1  | 01100  | d (I)    | munchkin ) | r1 |  | 2  | 01101  | e (I)    | sphynx     | r2 |  | 3  | 01101  | e (I)    | sphynx     | r3 |   d = dominant, r1 = 1st order recessive, r2 = 2nd order recessive, r3 = 3rd order recessive [...] 

      Kitty Mix Genes (Matron + Sire) Report

      Pass in two ids for the matron and sire kitties to print a mix genes report. Example:

       $ kitty 2 43 


       # Kitty #2 + #43   genes (kai) 1: ca9c 7575 f442 af9g 6664 5557 7777 4444 6686 8667 cccc ffec  genes (kai) 2: ca9a 7588 72a7 fa9f 4111 5555 dedf 4444 5888 4666 cccc fded   Fur (Genes 0-3)   |Gene|Kai|Trait (Matron) |Kai|Trait (Sire)  |    |  |----|---|---------------|---|--------------|----|  | 0  | c | **himalayan** | d | **munchkin** | d  |  | 1  | e | sphynx        | e | sphynx       | r1 |  | 2  | f | ragamuffin    | d | munchkin     | r2 |  | 3  | f | ragamuffin    | f | ragamuffin   | r3 |  [...] 

      Enyoy. Cheers. Prost.

      100.000, 200.000, 300.000 and 400,000 were not exclusive cats, so 600.000 is just going to be a normal cat but cat 888.888 will be 100 eth for china gamers. In some way cats with the 888.xxx serial will be 'rare' just 1000 of them, just put more 8's in the 'x' to increase price.

  167. helping real cats with crypto kitties?

    dystodesi , 06 March 2018 21:16

      Hi, welcome to Reddit! Yes, I think this is a great idea, and I think it would attract a new audience to play Cryptokitties, as well as promote Cryptokitties. All while helping real-life cats.

      I put forward a similar idea on the suggestion site, of having special "Big Cat" kitties, where special exclusive kitties would resemble endangered big Cats like Tigers and the money used to buy that cat would go to the World Wildlife Fund. I think the concept of charity kitties is something a lot of players would get behind. :) So I second this.

      AquaGoblin , 06 March 2018 22:08

      Great idea! If they implemented something like that I'd head back in.

      SeaOfDeadFaces , 06 March 2018 22:10

      Heya! We (2 of the mods) actually tried to set up something like this a month or two ago called "Kitties for Causes".

      Initially we had planned to donate %90 of every sale to local animal rescues, but it worked out to where the kitty floor was so cheap and the gas costs so high that it wouldn't have been able to sustain itself just in gas costs alone.

      So, we've been reworking the idea to where kitties donated to the account by the community are still sold at the original split, but we sell our own kitties on the same account at a %10 donation split to make up the cost, and to participate ourselves. :)

      Kitttyverse , 07 March 2018 03:11

      What if we all just donate unwanted cats to an account and that account can then maybe post the cast for sale. So the people who would buy these cats would be "rescuing" a cat in the game and IRL....

    island-cats , 06 March 2018 02:46

      This move is done with Ethereum's capacity in mind. We don't want to flood the network by doing simultaneous world wide releases on all platforms. Remember early December? 80 gwei to get your transaction through wasn't fun.

      DERPYBASTARD , 06 March 2018 03:31

      I've heard because China is Android heavy...not as many people pissed off when website crashes then brings down ethereum network with it :) Plus Apple users have more Eth to spend

      Steven-Patrick , 06 March 2018 03:16

      Probably because there is a IOS MetaMask SDK to build ethereum aware mobile app, but there is no such thing for Android.

      CryptoPuppies , 06 March 2018 19:24

      This matter is really two separate things. Though ios has a better interface then Apple the problem is that the network is often clogged and cannot fulfill its purpose in the long term without some serious scaling it,s a problem for cryptokitties or any others blockchain games using ethers for transaction and usability any thought?

      kryptofan , 05 March 2018 20:07

      One could do such experiment for "free" by reading genetics smart contract. Just call mixGenes functions passing your sireId, matronId and block number which is not older than 200 blocks from current - you will get same result as if you breed your kitties and specificed block. It cannot be done with etherscan, since contract source is not available but simple script can do it.

      hash_kitty , 05 March 2018 21:12

      Out of curiosity I've made a small research on it. Here is the deal.

      Currently there are 15951 kitties born from parents with unique dominant body trait, meaning that parent dominant body trait is not repeated in recessive gens of itself or other parent also dominant body trait is not mutant.

      Each of those 15951 got dominant body trait from one the parent, out of which 7946 got it from mother and 8005 from sire. So seems like there is slightly less chances to get dominant body trait from mother, like 0.5% but that's a normal error for this sample size I guess.

      hash_kitty , 06 March 2018 19:00

      According to various breeding calculators there is no difference between Dame and Sire, but we all know that it is not that simple, so we decided to run a test. We took 2 nice kitties and bred them twice, changing their roles. While waiting, we kinda expected to get almost identical twins but it didn't happen. The result strengthened our feeling that MOMS RULE!

      I designed the UI/UX for KittyCalc. Maybe I can help figure that side of things out. I agree it needs to be user friendly.

      Overwatch_Falcon , 05 March 2018 17:59

      Thats how it works? pay to get in on something early or wait till its not in demand. be positioned well and trade someone with the new traits. the first one is the hardest the rest arent so bad

      Slabmason710 , 05 March 2018 13:31

      Not a hard problem to solve. New traits and high demand traits should have a starting bid at 100 ether. Bots can be our guests to be the first buyer. The higher the rich pay, the bigger CK treasury have to develop this game.

      Similar problem here. Listed a Gen 0 cat for sale 1.5 hours ago. Went through on the blockchain within minutes, but still not yet showing on site. So - can't buy anything, can't sell anything.

      Really hope they fix these sorts of issues before the China launch, because if the site becomes dysfunctional right after launch then that will probably kill any buzz and interest generated by the launch.

    franckgant , 04 March 2018 01:02

      Yes and no. There could be a fancy out there that needs it but I don't think many people try to breed koala pairs. You'll find most of us breeding it with oldlace in order to create onyx.

      matteblackale , 04 March 2018 01:52

  183. Classic traits basically useless?

    elfmachine100 , 02 March 2018 22:55

      Well considering they said there will produce hundreds of fancies, all traits will most likely be used, many times. Also there are only a handful of fancies out and there are many repeats of traits; Henna, onyx, wolgrey, strawberry, cymric, spock, crazy, and potentially Wild (d) with the dogcat. I don't think it's fair to criticize a company when they are planning on releasing hundreds to maybe a thousand fancies based off the information from 13 fancies.

      Also many classic traits have been discontinued (Except for Totesbasic), so when fancies will require those traits. Those traits will have a higher premium since kittyclock isn't producing more of them.

      weareallfungi , 02 March 2018 23:15

      they don't, it's only financially feasible for them.

      Ouruborealis , 02 March 2018 23:06

      What I see happening is a bunch of fancies being lost because we aren't breeding old traits. They are perceived as having low value but are still necessary for the game. Hence Tabby being found.

      matteblackale , 03 March 2018 01:30

      old traits are worth alot man. go and look at Gen:0 orange soda gen:0 aquamarine gen:0 salmon. they have been very good about discontinuing traits and bringing in new ones to keep the game fresh and to help the earlier investors cats raise in value. old cats are definitely the furthest away from worthless as possible. lol. unless you invested in high generation cats then that was obviously a bad speculation made by yourself. and the fancies will literally be innumerable they will keep making as many fancies as we cap out till the end of time if the game stays relevant. no traits are worthless, some may be undervalued in the current market but that doesnt make them worthless.

      Slabmason710 , 03 March 2018 04:15

      I think every fancy breeder needs at least 50% of all traits released in order to compete in the fancy market, it seems for most recipes you need: 1 new gen, 1 mutation, 1 old trait, 1 easy trait . New players don't have old traits, for example is not easy task to get jaguar in gen0 or 1 (even 2,3). The best generations to buy for a fancy breeder are 4,5,6, all traits are there, some cats are under .008 eth. So we can create fancies at least gen 6,7 or 8

  185. Missing Assets in CK Land: Mewtations, Cattributes, Fancy Breeding, and The Future of Blockchain Contracts

    glitterchoke , 02 March 2018 18:42

      I’m just a player with a deep obsession with this game, so please take my comments in that context. I certainly don’t expect people to spend the thousands of hours that I have spent learning about this game. But when investing in any blockchain asset, it’s good to know what you’re actually investing in and what is only a promise, and especially what might appear to be a promise but turns out was never actually promised by anyone. On the other hand, when playing an online game, it’s pretty standard to know that the rules will change and what is valuable and powerful one day will become old and worthless another day, and the only constant is change.

      Overall, this seems largely an issue of educating the community what aspects are a blockchain collectible and what aspects are an online game, and which set of rules and promises apply to each aspect.

      The actual blockchain assets that were bought and sold have not changed. The information is readily available that the asset you own when you buy or breed a cryptokitty is a 256 bit hex string representing a certain kitty gene sequence which in turn has a representation in-game (on the centralized website) that follows certain rules, rules which were always intended to be somewhat mysterious and therefore never guaranteed. To put it plainly: you own the string of hex characters, but everything that makes the string fun and interesting is currently controlled by CK in a centralized fashion. (Players have the option to do anything they want with those strings since they own them, inclusing making a whole secondary alternate universe game. That’s one thing that blockchain and ownership makes possible, and maybe one day a community will build that. Then where will your value come from? The status of your owned string as a crypto kitty? Or whatever form it takes in the other “universe”? Value is what someone is willing to pay, and that will always change. The game updates tend to keep people engaged which tends to help keep kitties valuable overall/on the whole. Keep that in mind—a stangant game probably costs players far more than one where changes affect the relative value lf individual kitties.)

      CK has traditionally been good about making the in-game image be consistent (for the most part) even when a “printing error” means the wrong inage is assigned for the kitty’s genetics or the auto generated graphic components themselves are updated (sometimes in subtle ways like the versions of cymric, sometimes not suvtle like the newer pouty), so that has created a sense of trust and comfort that what we see in the centralized game is as immutable as what lives on the blockchain. (CK has promised to find a way to make the bios and kitty image live on the blockchain somehow, and are working on the best solution to that. If you ONLY play this game because you think it is completely decentralized, it is not and you need to know that. Also, to my next point, even when they add this hash to the blockchain it will still have many components which affect kitty value on the open market which are 100% centralized and correctly so.)

      However even this apparently inmutable kitty appearance has never been true: when new eye colors are released, on several occasions this resulted in kitty background colors (which most would consider to be part of the kitty’s appearance in game) being incorrect for a time and then later updated. This is because while the kitty image is hosted on Amazon’s servers and generated only one time at birth, features like the background color are programmatically/dynamically set by the website, and the website did not have data on the new eye colors (possibly to prevent data mining of new traits... because when they set up new traits like “parrot” in the system, people like me can pretty easily read them and see what they may look like. It’s a wonderful green color, by the way.) What is the correct move here? Expose future traits? Or have a short period where the website shows something incorrect that can and will easily be changed?

      But CK is a game, and games get updated to add new features and try to make existing features more fun or just different in order to keep players engaged. Necessarily, these new features have largely been “front-end” or website only “centralized” features like kitty appearance and kitty background color. And then we got the new family jewels feature which also definitely affected the relative value of all kitties in the game. The underlying blockchain asset is 100% the same as it ever was, but now some of those strings have in-game centralized expressed implications that (should) result in new graphics being displayed on the website (jewels and mutations). This kind of thing will almost certainly always be front end only. That means that, like background colors, they are suvjevt to change. I trust CK not to change these arbitrarily, but I also expect them to be correct. And so it is: when a front end bug is discovered, ot tends to be fixed. That’s how things work in online games, and CK os no exception. Which means it is important to understand that the relative value of your kitties will always be changing as a direct result of in-game front-end changes. The newer those changes, the more likely they are to have a bug (despite everyone’s best efforts, bug free code can never be 100% guaranteed, especially as it becomes more and more complex). Buying and selling based on new (or even announced or inferred) updates to the game is and always will be a risk/reward calculation that you will have to make. In this case some players took a risk that family jewels would work the way they seemed like they should work and some players took a risk that family jewels would act like kitty images and be “permanent”.

      The biggest problem is I don’t think most players knew they were taking a risk at all. Both had reason to believe that their expectations for how things would work were correct. But the existence of the bug meant that one set would turn out to be wrong because either the bug would be allowed to continue or the bug would be fixed. As a game mechanic, I personally hope the decision would be to make the fix, and so it was. In other online games there is often no kind of compensation when an item you purchased because it behaved super powerfully gets “nerfed” because it turns out to be too powerful (whether due to a bug or a poor game design decision), though there are certainly cases where compensation was made available. I agree with requesting some kind of compensation for changes to the game that negatively affected your items especially when you feel you had no reason to believe you were taking a gamble when buying those items. I don’t think compensation should be guaranteed or common, but in extreme cases I hope it would and could occur. (CK has compensated early adopters who had kitties whose genes and/or expressed cattributes did not match they kitty image, for example. This is great. No compensation was offered or even requested from what I understand when the first sapphire kitties had topaz background colors. This is also great.)

      This brings us to a messier change, which is the change to all fancies being limited. Family jewels were a relatively new feature when the bug was discovered and fixed. Fancies have been a part of the game from the start and the rules were absolutely never explicitly stated and CERTAINLY never promised to be a certain way. But of course humans are pattern matching machines and we discovered patterns and tested theories which continued to “prove” true, then made a lot of value judgements on the basis of those theories. Then everything changed with only the smallest hints that things would or could change. And this affected almost everything and everyone in the game. This more than anything has probably helped show everyone that there exists (remember: there has always existed) a divide between what you own on the blockchain and what only exists as a game within CK. The game is where kitty value is created based mostly on player expectations and theories about how changes or non changes to the game will affect future kitty value. And this distinction had been mostly academic for most players until now. [1/2, continued in reply.]

      AtAlanfalcon , 02 March 2018 19:53

      I think a reasonable question here is what is the point of CK being built on the block chain? If all of the new, interesting changes are going to be centralized why build on the block chain to start with? If the block chain is central to what makes CK the great game it is, why stray further and further from the block chain?

      Steven-Patrick , 02 March 2018 23:21

      This cat had Four lapis mewtations, yes FOUR !!!


      All of them have been removed because he was a child of two fancies. I had great hope to sell this cat around 1ETH (only 250 cat with four mewtations in the whole game) and now this is a shit-cat among other shit cats.

      I am very very disapointed by this update ...

      I don't think breaking the family lines was a big deal, but losing such a unique cat is.

      bibdieu , 03 March 2018 00:13

      Lets make a small experiment to illustrate the fact that with EVERY decision to change (fix) something, Axiom Zen is causing some pain and moves value from one catholder to another. And with every announcement Axiom Zen creates expectations. And every tinkering creates a need for further tinkering.

      From blog post:

      "We’re going to make sure all the CryptoKitties that were supposed to get Family Jewels and mewtation gems will get them. We’re putting the fix in as soon as we can, probably as you are reading this or even before."

      So as we now know that Axiom Zen has taken a path to fix all injustice done to supposed jewel/gem owners, lets try to capitalize on it. There are several cats on the market carrying wrong jewels, and in some case selling cheaper than they should. First 10 mewtations, for example, currently sell rarely below 0.1, but some of them are on the market cheaper, because they do not carry the supposed golden "gilded" mewtation badges. While it looks like Axiom Zen fixed several earlier mistakes, new cattributes are still buggy.

      From the quote above - Axiom Zen is going to fix it, so I am buying kitties 573059 and 573855 and wait until the fix is done. They would sell for 0.1 each, so I will win, sellers will lose. One loses 0.02 eth, the other 0.06 eth.

      I am not doing this (currently) for gain, so once the fix is done, I will transfer to sellers the difference to the price I would be ready to pay, as noted above. Or they can have the cats back, if they insist and reimburse the cost.

      Technicals: kitties have variable for each cattribute showing the id of kitty they inherited it from and rank of this ancestor kitty. If this ancestor id coincides with kitty id itself, it means that this is mewtation - cattribute is not inherited. So these 2 kitties, I just bought, show their position of 'buzzed' as 11 and 12. But if you look the first 'buzzed' cats - there are numbers 5 and 8 missing, so the real numbers should be 9 and 10. Even if you don't look under the hood - kitty 573059 is 10-th kitty EVER with 'buzzed', so how can it have 11+ mutation badge?

  187. Make fancy cats sterile or limit kids

    noob-breeder , 02 March 2018 08:05

      I think it's a good idea and can help, but we also don't know CK's plans for fancies in the future. Will there be 6 to 8 traits fancies that can only be bred from fancy + fancy? Who knows? If they have this planned then making them sterile or catatonic to start really ruins those plans.

      Also, just from a different perspective. I'm not a huge whale, but I think I'm pretty well situated in the game with over 1,000 kitties. Once I realized there was a Yuri cap I went farming and only bred one pair that was Fancy + Fancy. The rest of my pairs for 3/4 or 3.5/4. That fancy + fancy pair did give me 4 Yuri's which I was happy about, but with the 3/4 pairs I was able to pop out 16 more Yuri's in a 24 hour window. So, from a "non-whale" if whales wanted to farm fancies they can still do so, pretty well with just 3/4's and 3.5/4.

      weareallfungi , 02 March 2018 08:26

      You can't change the core game mechanic of any kitty being born ready and able to breed with their normal cooldown. As far as the smart contract is concerned, a fancy is just another cat same as any other cat. All you can do is change the rules for producing a fancy. There have been many suggestions, most of which probably fall apart in practice. But one that MIGHT work (or, yeah, might just fall apart in practice) is introduce a fancy lockout restriction for children and grandchildren of fancies. Figuring out how to communicate this to players and display it in the UI is an exercise for another time, but as a gameplay mechanic it makes it much more expensive to make a fancy farm, which helps even the odds a bit on breeding near misses together. It's still not a perfect solution even if the UI issues could be solved, but it is something new and different to think about which is at least theoretically possible given the realities of the game/blockchain (as I understand them). [Also, weareallfungi has a good point in another comment that this probably doesn't significantly change anything.]

      xboxerdude , 02 March 2018 09:25

      One solution: Allow breed fancy with fancy, but never show in the front end a new fancy, because at least sire or matron has to be a normal cat.

      kryptofan , 02 March 2018 13:21

      Like the idea of sterilizing the fancies - increases difficulty breeding, slows down the farms, adds more value to the fancies themselves. But I'm afraid that would upset this next thing with the catdog dragons so probably not.

      syd430 , 02 March 2018 12:01

      I care because I want to offload my 10 or so remaining kitties for a decent profit. That’s probably not going to happen until demand picks up substantially, something I can’t see happening until they move away from MetaMask and there’s an app that people can buy directly from.

    jodiferous11 , 02 March 2018 01:06

      Hey Jodi,

      I think (I hope?)I covered much of what new players would ask about the game in my Starter Guide on http://kittyhelper.club/starter-guide/

      You can check it out and see if any of the info there is useful for you. :)

      jezztharipper , 02 March 2018 01:43

      The greatest issue seems to be consolidating and distributing detailed information about kitty genes, sale history, etc. A number of people have put together different tutorials but as a community it seems like we have failed to bring that all together into a wiki. In addition, it's good to point to any media related sources but CK's website already does a decent job of this.

      Since the game involves a market, it's important to do the best we can to highlight what data is mutable and what data isn't. As this relates to the technology, we are referring to data stored on CK's servers versus the block-chain. This isn't necessarily an issue for a new player in there first moments playing but a kind of "debt" that can be accrued because they didn't understand what aspects of a kitties value may be changed by technical changes (e.g. fancy number, mewtations).

      Why_is_that , 02 March 2018 01:42

  194. Its time to talk breeding fees

    xboxerdude , 01 March 2018 22:51

      Changing the breeding fee now would be cat-astrophic for the game IMO. There may be ways to help alleviate the cost in other ways though, ones which increase the value of kitties rather than cause them to plummet.

      WeAllMagic , 02 March 2018 01:03

      Yeah I often feel like getting back into it but with those breeding fees, forget it. I'll go battle robots.

      As I said before, If the team continued put "NEW Fancy" on the market, it is a terrible idea.

      But, if the team only cheer people up for the chinese marketing, that is ok.

      But wish the team hear something, less fancy then can make fancy as "FANCY", otherwise the fancy cats are just "NORMAL"

      icesnowday , 02 March 2018 01:36

      Read the smart contract before you bash something that's been laid out since day one.

      weareallfungi , 01 March 2018 17:20

      The account is the account the devs use for giveaways, also the devs can create 5000 gen0 for promotions in the contract

      pirahnatsunami66 , 01 March 2018 16:01

      The developers have a set number of promo kitties they can create and sell or give away as they choose, which was laid out from day one. It's actually kind of funny because they've chosen to give away Gen 1 "promo kitties" as well during Benny's World Tour, which makes a lot of sense. But the funny part is that to generate these gen 1s they have to breed a bunch of gen 0s together like the rest of us, and pay the breeding fee and wait for cooldowns and everything :-) So this is just everything working A) Exactly as intended and B) Exactly as they've said it would work from day 1, with a little extra creativity thrown in on their part!

      AtAlanfalcon , 01 March 2018 16:11

      I see nothing wrong here. Currently 3016 promo cats have been created - 3000 founder cats and 16 dogcats, I suppose. Also any new gen 0 can only be created by an account in control of the dev team. So issuance of gen 0 was always centralized and controlled by devs. Smart contract only limits total supply of gen 0s and sets starting auction price, which is calculated from previous auctions (if it is not promo cats that's are transferred straight to owner without auction). So prices of normal gen 0s are not controlled by devs.

      hash_kitty , 01 March 2018 17:32

      Just to confirm: the account is in our hands so there is nothing to worry. These kitties still need to be given out.

      BoomBapSunk , 01 March 2018 17:15

      There are actually few interesting things about that:

      1) 56xxxx-57xxxx are 8 dogkitties (created as promo kitties by CCO account) that I suppose to be distributed later. You can check with cryptokittydex that those have same 8 traits as other 8 dogkitties that are owned by "World Tour" account.

      2) 328932, 329198, 329414 are more interesting I guess those 3 kitties which were created like normal gen 0s and bought on auction by CCO account. Those kitties have exactly same genes and there is 4th kitty with the same gens, which was not bought by CCO (https://www.cryptokitties.co/kitty/329043). I guess those 3 kitties will be use as promo someday later or there was some kind of testing.

      3) 332410, 290426, 211679 - seem to be normal cats owned by 2 different accounts, pictures for 2 of them can be seen - nothing fancy, but no pages on the site.

      4) Another interesting cat is 559805 - picture for that can be seen, but not page on the site. It is just a failed attempt to breed stiches - was bought by CCO account for 0.002 eth - who knows why..

  200. what the bug on the [email protected]

    icesnowday , 01 March 2018 13:00

      I understand what happens. While the oldest data in my database, I was able to compare. Your kitty 558733 has gene mutation at coloreyes - pumpkin. http://www.rolldice.club/cryptokitties/wkt_kitty.php?id=558733 In OldJewel version it makes new blue gem Mewtation (position:420). In NewJewel your gene mutation at coloreyes does not create blue gem Mewtation, but receives blue gem (position: 372) from kitty 548760.


      Link between 558733 and 548760:

      558733 <= 552685 + 544781

      552685 <= 552590 + 548147

      552590 (Stitches) <= 548697 + 548760

      Kitty 552590 grandmother of 558733 and daughter of 548760 is Fancy. In OldJewel version fancy broke the inheritance chain, and 558773 has not received a blue gem from 548760, and has created new gem Mewtation. In NewJewel version 558773 has received "higher grade" 372 gem, instead 420.

      Remember, gene mutation is not always "Mewtation". In my opinion it's wrong, but Axiom Zen set rules. https://www.reddit.com/r/CryptoKitties/comments/7y2uwa/diamonds_are_a_fake_here_is_an_example/

    DERPYBASTARD , 01 March 2018 00:47

      So many of my kitties have lost their Mewtations as expected. I have to say, this does seem quite unfair. As I did spend money on those Kitties for the reason that they had Mewtations, some with multiple. And now the vast majority have lost them. Will there be any kind of compensation for this? I wouldn't have gotten these Kitties if I knew they would be devalued with this update. I'm counting about 20 Mewtations lost overall. That's so disappointing. :(

      AquaGoblin , 01 March 2018 03:07

      How are more people not upset by this? Or perhaps they just haven't noticed? The point of ethereum based contracts is that they're suppose to be contracts. A contract once executed is suppose to be unchangeable. And yet many of us just had what we 'bought' changed into something we wouldn't have bought. How is that fair...?

      glitterchoke , 01 March 2018 07:35

      20 of my cats have now lost their MEW gems. So much for trusting blockchain and this game. This is very upsetting.

      glitterchoke , 01 March 2018 03:09

      Awwwww, I lost a lot of Mewtations. :'(

      Haveagreatdaysir , 01 March 2018 03:25

      This is deeply disturbing. I hope developers reconsider the decision.

      1. What will happen with other "mistakes"? With those cats carrying 12-16 cattributes, for example?

      2. As your technical architect dete73 declared on earlier post here - you are committed to make metadata immutable. Your current decision goes right against this pledge. Does current decision mean that you reserve the right to play around with metadata, and we should not trust any information outside the blockchain?

      I am losing a bit with the decision, but bigger loss is loss of confidence. Don't do this, guys, really.

  213. Why time-limited fancies are technically not that great

    hash_kitty , 27 February 2018 16:17

      As the technical architect and lead designer of the CK breeding algorithm, let me tell you that we feel your pain. And I can also assure you that we felt that pain before we even launched.

      Limiting the number of Fancies was one of our goals from the moment we conceived of the idea. And we tried REALLY hard to find an efficient way to test for Fancies (and enforce limits) in the smart contract. In the end, we couldn't get it to work. You know those birthing fees that seem so unreasonable? They'd need to be double, or even triple, what they are today to properly check for Fancies on the blockchain. (Short explanation: Every Kitty that is born needs to be tested against every possible Fancy recipe. We couldn't think of any short cuts that didn't require looping over every Fancy recipe for every new kitten.)

      At the same time, we really love the Fancy Hunt. As most of you know, we didn't even tease the necessary ingredients for the first Fancies, we just waited for them to pop randomly and then left it to the community to try to figure out the triggers. Of course, we've taken to teasing cattributes these days, which is it's own kind of Hunt. (But not for every Fancy! There are some Fancies that are attainable right now, with currently available genes, that haven't been uncovered yet...) The Fancy Hunt wouldn't be possible if we checked for Fancies on-chain, because the recipes would need to be right out there on the open blockchain. (Even if we had some way of obfuscating the code, folks would be able to brute force the recipes just by trying every possible combination using an Ethereum Virtual Machine running locally.)

      So, unfortunately, that means that the release of Fancies is going to remain centralized for the foreseeable future. We know (and hate) that this makes the experience less pure, but this was a case where we had to choose between "pure" vs. "fun and practical". "Fun and practical" had to win. (We also hate that we've had Printing Errors like Santas 1001 and 1002. Thankfully, we appear to have squashed that bug!)

      It's worth noting (for those that aren't aware) that we have committed to putting Kitty metadata (which will include bios, images, gems, and badges) into IPFS, and then storing the content hash on the blockchain. This is not as easy as it sounds (IPFS isn't as robust and mature as you might hope, and storing things on Ethereum is pretty slow and expensive, even something as small as content hashes), but it will happen. The system for determining which cats count as Fancies can stay centralized (and therefore surprising and fun) while the Fancy Kitties themselves will become trustlessly immutable.

      dete73 , 27 February 2018 23:57

      Yeah, the centralization aspect kinda sucks. After those big plans to have even the images on the blockchain, it's starting to look like they change anythin they want on the whim. I mean, we always knew that, but if they want people to believe in kitties permanence, they shouldn't really do those inconsistent, frontend-only changes - like changing the art of the cattributes, changing text of the bios or fancy limits, none of which is set in the kitty's code.

      The limits, while enhancing the FOMO, are also greatly limiting the people who can get to the fancies...if you just wanted the fancy and couldn't spend so much, you could just wait a bit until the ingredents were cheap enough. And you could make your own from catatonic cats...now the limit is hit before it's born, even if you were among the first to guess the right combo. While it makes fancies more exclusive and increases their price, it also makes the ingredient-kitties prices plummet the minute they're no longer needed, which was a much bigger market than those few actual fancies.

      UncordialPen , 27 February 2018 11:23

      Grats to Caleido and cryptokittyhub.com for finding the first three!

      All three kitties have these traits in common: ragamuffin, cheeky, otaku, and morningglory

      No guarantees, but it looks like we've figured out the recipe! Be sure to use a breeding calculator like https://kittycalc.co/ to help you maximize your odds of breeding the fancy if you decide to try for it, and good luck! :-)

      Beautiful. A real fancy like Genesis and Cathena art. I don't have any of those traits, so at the end of the Tabby rush, I am going to buy that traits to expand my personal collection

  216. So I see the "very first" fancy cat is for sale for what seems a crazy "shoot for the moon" price, but how can you see how much exceptionally rare Kitties are actually selling for?

    WhatForLife , 27 February 2018 04:50

      The "special feature" thing is nice. Adds a lot of perspective to how rare something is. For example, as far as I can tell, this is the first "fancy cat" and number 1 in 2000. Cool. That's truly rare. I get it. Although you'd need to be crazy ETH rich to even consider buying it.

      But how can I find out how much really rare Kitties are actually selling for, say in the last couple of weeks.

  218. Better to sire or sell?

    confusedkittyowner , 27 February 2018 02:38

      Of the two options, selling is more likely to work out best for you if you can figure out the right price. The problem with siring it is that there is no good way to search for gene purity in sires other than checking one by one which gets old fast. So nobody is likely to pay a premium to sire with your kitty.

      IMO the best thing to do is to breed it out yourself when the mewtation pair comes out and sell successful mewtations. This definitely costs you more and is riskier since even in the best case you have a less than 25% chance of a mewtation with each breed and could miss 8 times in a row. But it should have a higher expected payout overall.

      As to your second question, I would jump on whichever comes first. The ideal would be a fancy that requires the mewtation off sizzurp.

      So it depends entirely on your goals and circumstances.

      WeAllMagic , 27 February 2018 10:47

      To everyone who doubted the utility of “high gen” kitties, you’re now looking at the prime example. This is not possible at your coveted low gens, haha. Though of course the race is still on to see how low can you go on a carefully crafted 8 diamond kitty!

      IamKevio , 25 February 2018 06:26

      That why you need first to make one account at Bitstamp ( like i did ) and get approved for transactions, after that deposit with your card in Bitstamp (or other platform you chose ) , you can buy ETH , BTC or XRP . After this send ETH to your Kittie account wallet. Done !

      ParanoidLunatic , 25 February 2018 01:19

      it's most like a metamask issue - sometimes it sets gas limit too high indeed. You can just manually change Gas Limit to "300000" units that should be enough for most CK transactions including bidOnSiringAuction. Also consider changing Gas Price value according to https://ethgasstation.info/ standard price or a little above it (by default it usually set about that value) to minimize transaction cost. For example currently standard gas price is 2 gwei, so you can set it to 2.000001 gwei so your transaction gets ahead of those with standard gas price. It usually would take 2-3 minutes to confirm that transaction, so it's unlikely that someone else will bid before you.

    1CryptoCollector , 24 February 2018 04:18

  231. ALL Fancy Cats are now limited edition!

    Kitttyverse , 24 February 2018 02:15

      Did they really think this through? Of course they made “fancy hunters” happy but what they did is

      1. Concentrate power in the hands of a few rich (which of course happens anyway in life but it was extremely exasperated) who could breed fancies together like this guy whose account is a Santa farm https://www.cryptokitties.co/profile/0x48386386f3bdf3c6dc0de6f53bc5957fc4e1e30d/all/1. At one point he had 4 consecutive number Santa cats. It is so much easier to make a fancy if you can breed the fancies together

      2. In an attempt to stabilize the economy, they devalued all the failed fancy cats which of course didn’t have too much value but now there’s so many more than there were and they are worthless now.

      3. There are people, myself included, who were slowly acquiring low gen parts to make a fancy later down the road that got screwed over in this because like my point above those cats are useless now.

      4. Caused massive panic in the community. I’d guess a significant number of people did not get much sleep the last two days.

      I think they could have accomplished their goal in a more fair manner (or maybe they just don’t care but they seem like they kinda do) if they thought about it a little more.

      1. They could have made new fancies moving forward limited so that everyone is on the same playing field.

      2. They could make fancies sterile moving forward so there’s no advantage to already owning tons of fancies.

      3. They could make it a time limit instead of a cat limit because again you just get a whale in there and they blow the number limit very quickly. Of course with a time limit, you still have whale problems but there will always be whales and bots so at least in this case other people have more of a shot. Plus in this case, people can get some damn sleep instead of worrying about whether or not the cap has been hit!

      Of course I wouldn’t be posting this if I didn’t feel screwed over so there’s my disclosure but I honestly feel like something like this should have been thought out more. Did they really think the limits wouldn’t start being hit within a couple days? That’s what makes me think that they didn’t think it through.

    syd430 , 24 February 2018 07:47

      They've told us there are hundreds of fancies planned, and that they intend to continue to support the game for years. I'm excited. The fact that they're now okay with having limited edition fancies means that they can introduce fancy recipes that overlap with existing trait combos -- anything after X id number until the limit is reached would be a fancy, so it won't matter if there already exists, say, a norwegianforest ganado azaleablush sass: that could still be the new "Miss Purrfect" fancy recipe.

    McDuff_71 , 24 February 2018 01:06

      DERPYBASTARD , 24 February 2018 05:14

      ...important quote from the article...

      "Unfortunately, copyright and legal terms of service are blunt instruments. We know that the way things are now is not good enough, but defining “good enough” takes longer than we’d like.

      What I can do is make a firm commitment for early next year: We are going to store all Kitty images in IPFS, and store an immutable hash of that image in the blockchain. Once this happens, no one — not us, not you, not some black-hat hacker — will be able to change or destroy the image of your Kitties. Access to the image of your cat will not depend on our servers or our Amazon account. This is a top priority for us now, and was a part of our plan from the beginning"

      "We are also working to “change the terms to grant you a limited license to use the specific arrangement of graphic elements defined by your Kitty’s DNA,” just as Greg proposed."

      ...I personally would be interested in understanding how to remove the "limited license" and making it unrestricted...my real world cat is unrestricted, I'd hope the virtual ones to be as well...

  235. How do i estimate the rarity or price of my kitty correctly?

    de_stroyed88 , 23 February 2018 20:57

      This resource may help - it doesn't give you a value estimate, just shows you what some desirable elements of your cats are that you can't see at a glance. https://cryptokitties411.com/2018/02/16/how-to-value-your-kitties/

      Beyond that, the best way I've found is to read up on the game (cryptokitties411 has a TON of helpful information) and learn which traits are more desirable than others, then price kitties based on the most desirable trait or trait combo it has. In general, the main considerations are generation (lower is better), rare traits, being part of a desired mutation or fancy, and purebred genes. Jewels may also be a factor, and virginity definitely is.

      Here's an example - Jaguar is a pretty rare trait, so if I had a virgin gen 2 cat that had it, I'd generally search for "gen:2 jaguar," sort by cheapest, and price it similarly regardless of its other traits.

      But if it was a purebred jaguar, or had the jaguar trait in at least one recessive gene along with the dominant one, I'd price it higher than others of its gen that don't.

      And if it had traits that were part of any of the fancies that use jaguar mutations (momo-chan and negato use henna, earnie uses hotrod), I'd price it even higher.

      BUT if it were, say, the only cymric azaleablush jaguar on the market, it might seem extra rare, but that additional rarity isn't worth anything. Lots of cats are one-of-a-kind - unless that kind includes extra value, that doesn't really matter.

      ashkestar , 24 February 2018 01:44

      pricing is always difficult, especially if they are not gen zeros, because it is so dependent on a variety of factors (e.g., market/volume/rarity/generation/cooldown). i'd recommend checking out (https://opensea.io/assets/cryptokitties) to see if you can find similar kitties to compare current prices.

      as for your kitties, while adorable I do not think they are worth much at the moment (personal opinion <$5 USD) as they are mostly high generation count with slow cooldowns. if you ever do want to turn a profit, focus more on obtaining kitties with low gen/cooldowns with attributes that have yet to be paired/mutated to create a new attribute. whale breeders (they do exist) snap up these kitties without much regard for the price as they want to be the first to breed the new mutation or fancy.

      this is my personal opinion as i am not an expert either, but i have profited from the game with gen zeros. best of luck!

      pparkie , 23 February 2018 22:21

      high gen cats aren't worth much right now even though you have some good traits like onyx, otaku, and elk, for example. what you do have that is of value to some collectors is low numbered cats. the ones you have below 37k should sell better than the ones you have at 300k+ for no other reason than the low ID number. what are they worth? use https://www.kittyexplorer.com/ to get an idea based on traits. value based on ID may be harder to determine.

  239. Anybody know how ETH games get around Apple's policies about in-game currency on iOS?

    dont_hate_scienceguy , 23 February 2018 07:35

      Interesting. I wasn't aware Apple had this policy. Now that I think about it, it makes sense - allowing crypto payments in game would be a huge threat to their lucrative app store revenue stream.

      Couple this with the fact that all mobile games in China must get government approval for release, and I'm beginning to think we may never see CK on mobile released in China.

      And Animoca seems as new to blockchain games as anyone else by the looks of it. Their history is as a publisher of mobile games based on licenced brands, such as Garfield and Mattel's brands. CryptoKitties appears to be the first time they've done anything related to crypto/blockchain.

      Would love to get more insights into this Apple policy as well. On the surface it doesn't bode well for their China release.

      elbak283 , 23 February 2018 09:43

    mistergou , 22 February 2018 15:07

      but is there a way to submit a Sire Auction while the cat still has the "resting" pictured. (its been way passed the time so the cat is ready)

      mistergou , 22 February 2018 20:11

      You can do direct breeding at: http://kitties.love

      madogvelkor , 22 February 2018 16:50

      These resources are very useful. Does anyone knows an etherscan command, to get the 'sales history' of a particular cat? I know the info is in cryptokittydex, but I would like to see that in json or directly on the blockchain.

    xboxerdude , 22 February 2018 18:39

      They won't make any more, that is why it is good to understand what traits aren't in production anymore. This is kinda of like rewarding the early adopters as they had the chance to buy this trait cheap and have it grow in value over time. Other traits that are common now should stop production as well (look for amur to be stopping, and other similar to when that came out).

  245. All 9 jewel Cats

    Dupontgoer , 22 February 2018 16:41


      for example this is a high gen unvaluable kitty but it has 9 jewels

      Dupontgoer , 22 February 2018 16:50

      I'm going for gen:24 with 64 diamonds in its bloodline so people will be able to pick and choose what kind of 8 diamond cat they want to have.

      Slabmason710 , 23 February 2018 03:06

      I guess jewels are not much valuable. Jewel just mean that some ancestor of the kitty was among first to discover the trait. Since jewels are inherited by all descendants, total supply of jewels for each trait is potentially unlimited, so inflation is high and value is low. On the other hand Mewtations for each trait have limited supply, so should have some more value.

      hash_kitty , 22 February 2018 17:24

      i would say yes. here's a Gen7 with 9 Gems - beautiful cat as well - https://www.cryptokitties.co/kitty/533206

  246. Do you get a notification if someone outbid you for a sale?

    mrs_glitternose , 22 February 2018 13:02

      If someone else buys the kitty after you sent your bid but before it is confirmed, then when your transaction gets mined it will fail (TxReceipt Status: Fail) and your money will be returned (minus the gas you paid). You don't get any other more specific notification.

    rabah127 , 22 February 2018 02:15

      3 tbs of garlic, 1 tsp of butter, and a pinch of salt.

      lookitsme14 , 22 February 2018 04:00

      it comes as a recessive in gen0

      kryptofan , 22 February 2018 04:33

      It's not a mutation, so you can't breed two other traits together to get it. You just have to inherit the gene from a parent kitty.

      Hecatonquiro , 21 February 2018 16:06

      More details will be given somewhere this week.

      DERPYBASTARD , 21 February 2018 18:57

      The most logical way to create a holiday fancy tradition is to turn on the fancy-button 1-2 weeks prior to said holiday and turn off 1-2 weeks following. No one wants to breed Santa in June nor do investors want their prized kitty's devalued to rubbish.

      This also creates a new category of fancy gens to be named something cute. It could also be dashed, but thats not fun (i.e. Purrfect gen7- year2)

      8trackbagholder , 22 February 2018 00:51

      Will we know when the time limit is reached? That would be nice. Sucks to breed for something you can't get anymore...

      dont_hate_scienceguy , 22 February 2018 02:20

      Speculation is

      Time limit : Valentines Day 2019 (still 360 days to go, breed now)

      They also say they will announce “way before” the limit is reached. We are at 400+ now, and still no announcement, so we are not even “way close”. So another speculation:

      Number limit: maybe 50k (just like gen 0) or 8327 (as rare as Ducat).

  257. Does the creator of cryptokitties make any money from this? How?

    jonbristow , 20 February 2018 14:03

      3.5% of every transaction and 100% of the sales from gen:0 kittyclock

      Slabmason710 , 20 February 2018 14:09

      Here's a copypaste from a comment I wrote about the money flow:

      • The gen 0 kitties are created by a smart contract owned by the creators of the game. The profile that holds these kitties is called "Kitty Clock". Any Ether used to purchase kitties from this clock goes to the developers.
      • There is a 3.75% commission on every transaction that goes through the CryptoKitties smart contract. This commission also goes to the developers.
      • There is also a similar account called "CK COO" which owned the first 100 cats, called the Founder cats. Any purchases from this account also went to the developers. All of these cats have been sold somewhere around the launch of the game.

      And things not for the developers:

      • The flat breeding fee (currently 0.008 ether) goes towards the people who call the giveBirth function when a matron is ready to give birth. This system was created so people can get rewarded for helping the blockchain and CryptoKitties.
      • Transaction fees used to process your transactions go to the Ethereum miners.

      Thunderfish8 , 19 February 2018 21:23

      Anyone on the CryptoKitties team with knowledge of the breeding formulas is effectively banned from buying and breeding. We made this decision before launching to avoid this exact issue.

      What's the player's profile? We'll take a look from there.

      ResidentCoolCat , 19 February 2018 21:55

      UPDATE: We've yet to find anything incriminating, but we're going to continue investigating. We'll keep you updated on what we discover.

      If any of you find anything that seems nefarious, please let us know via [email protected], a comment on this message, or via a DM.

      ResidentCoolCat , 20 February 2018 04:55

      IMO it would honestly better to not reveal hints. It gives a MASSIVE advantage to those who already have a good portion of the new CK mutation and fancy market corner because they have hundreds of low gen, multi-trait cats from the profits or initial investment that now collaborate with lots of the bigger CK fan sites.

      They have virtually unlimited eth to breed and enough low gen cats, and even with 2 revealed traits or pretty obvious hints they are bound to have a HUGE upper hand on breeding the first / one of the first few of the new fancies with no repercussion since within the current economy the .008 eth to breed for a cat that will sell for close to 1eth is such a negligible cost to someone with the amount they are holding.

      This really just ends up perpetuating the big CK accounts making 300+ eth off CK to keep netting money and giving the smaller accounts or those without the contacts they have a serious disadvantage that a lot of the time ends up leading to CK becoming a money sink where a player will end up with a bunch of useless gen 8s they breed for another useless cat that won't even net close to the breed fee.

      There's definitely groups of the wealthy in CK who collaborate and have an insider group (not neccesarily affiliated with the devs, but keep in mind the CK fan sites do speak with the dev team as well to help develop tools) to continue to profit using information that isn't as quickly readily available even for someone of those active in the discord.

      Ultimately I don't think there's a good solution. Most of those people started with a lot of available capital to invest or learned how to profit early on, which was smart on their part, but now is really creating a severe issue that I could see driving away new players when they see the same 3-4 people selling off their useless gen 1s for the cheapest price and constantly be churning out new, valuable kitties even if they have a few failed trials while they get stuck with failed cats that they can't even get .002 eth for.

      Fantastic video! Welcome to the community! It's so great to re-experience what it's like to be thrown into this game and then find yourself completely lost. Hahaha. I have many things to say. :-)

      I've been waiting to find the perfect kitty to name Napoleon Hill, and you went there with your first -- sorta! For some context, I have no fewer than 21 pages of kitties. And I promise I have never robbed a bank or stolen a credit card :-) I'm just someone who was lucky enough to get into a little Crypto early, watch it multiply, and then watch myself turn it all into pictures of cats on the internet.

      And I don't regret a moment of it!

      Here is my account: Fantastic video! Welcome to the community! It's so great to re-experience what it's like to be thrown into this game and then find yourself completely lost. Hahaha. I have many things to say. :-)

      And I don't regret a moment of it!

      Here is page 21 of my account: https://www.cryptokitties.co/profile/0xd75bb1e6ef53d0c65bcf53ecb19d8c64a7026c58/all/21

      I bought Cucumber there for twice your starting budget when I first started, and pretty quickly learned that I needed to learn A LOT to continue to play this crazy new game.

      Learning about gas is vital to this game, and also a key part of learning how to properly use Etherium. Some key points: NEVER change the GAS LIMIT. Almost AWLAYS change the GAS PRICE. You can use the website https://ethgasstation.info/ to find a safe gwei price to change the Gas Price to that will allow your transaction to still complete in a reasonable about of time. Paying the default of 20 gas right now means that your transaction will complete very quickly, but also will be more expensive than necessary. Currently you could safely pay 1/10 that in transaction fees by using 2 gwei as a gas price.

      Also: this is a collectibles game. One truth about most "blind" collectibles is that it's always cheaper to just find some common already opened items than it is to buy a blind bag and open the common item yourself. Of course people buy the blind bags because they want to get lucky and open the super rare item that they could turn around and sell for 10-100x what they paid for it -- or else put it on their shelf and feel good about themselves. (I'm describing myself here.) So that's why you're able to buy kitties pretty cheap on the market, but it costs you about $10 to create a new one -- breeding kitties is like buying a blind bag, and the resulting kitty is very very likely going to be common and worth a fraction of what you paid for it. Unlike other blind bags though, this kitty could have special value to you: YOU MADE IT! From your own parent kitties! And it's unique and special in that if you hadn't made it exactly when you did from the parents you used, it would NEVER EXIST! But there's also one super important way in which this differs from buying a blind bag collectible in the real world. You get to control your odds. A little. But it's enough that there are some of us with twenty, thirty, or fifty pages of kitties and that's all self-funded through meticulously researched and planned out breeding of kitties. (I'm no longer describing myself here. To self fund more kitties I'd have to be willing to sell my kitties. I'm a hoarder. Oh well.)

      So how do you manipulate your odds? The first thing to do is use a breeding calculator like kittycalc.co (disclaimer: when I ran out of Ether I helped make this tool because I'm obsessed with CryptoKitties and if you can't play then the next best thing is to help other people play, right?) where you can enter your parent IDs and see exactly what kind of kitty is possible:


      You can see that you had a chance to have the broken whiskers with the teeth (that's the mouth type called "saycheese" -- click the name to see a picture in KittyCalc), and that you actually "mewtated" that bloodred belly (called accent colour) with a less than 4% chance -- neither of your parents had a bloodred gene, but it turns out that if you breed kittencream and emeraldgreen together, they have a small chance of turning into bloodred, and through the magic of Gene Science one parent tried to pass on an emeraldgreen gene, one parent tried to pass on a kittencream gene, and then you got lucky again and bloodred came out! How do you know which traits can combine to create band new traits? KittyCalc.co has you covered again:


      So does that mean that little glazed eyes is a super valuable kitty? Well, sadly, no, not really. I noticed that you had Kitty411.com open in a tab, and there are a ton of really good articles that help explain all this stuff, but I know it's a lot of reading. For some people, it's well worth taking the time to read as much as possible before spending your $30 or whatever budget you've allowed yourself to test the waters with. For others, they can afford to just YOLO it. But I definitely think you can have more fun, and your budget will go much farther, if you are able to take the time to read the articles that are out there. Or else just feel free to keep posting videos like this -- I loved it! -- and we can continue to provide tips and advice here in the comments!

      I have a lot more I could say. Be careful when buying the cheapest kitty available because it's likely someone else is also considering buying it, and if their transaction is approved first then you're not going to get the kitty and you'll lose your transaction cost. But you won't be charged the price of the kitty -- just the cost of submitting the bid. The "max transaction cost" in metamask is just an estimate. You need at least that much ether to submit the transaction, but it is likely only going to cost you part of that. This depends on how much gas is used by the transaction, which is affected by how much processing power the etherium network needs to spend to process it. Some things like breeding a new kitty use a lot of gas. Some things like gifting a kitty use very little. Any excess fee beyond what the miner actually uses will be refunded (or really, it will never even leave your account). You could have turned off the "Fast" filter by clicking the word "Fast" again. Your best bet with a siring auction is to set it to go to 0.0 over a period of time. It's possible that you end up giving away a breed for free (actually it costs you ether just to list it, so you lose ether in the end) but if you're using the lowest possible gas price then the fee is relatively negligible and for the most part someone will come along and want to breed with your kitty for a small fee before it gets to 0. It looks like it's cheaper to use the siring market than it is to breed with your own kitties, but as you saw it actually still costs the fixed 0.008 ETH breeding fee (which essentially goes to the miner who runs the "expensive" gene science algorithm that generates your new kitty in a decentralized, fair way) in addition to the siring fee (which goes to the owner of the sire). What's likely to happen with your current kitties is that they will drop to the minimum sire cost you set and then stay there for the rest of time until you pay another small fee (nothing in this game is free, other than naming your kitty, such is the nature of the blockchain) to cancel the listing. If this all sounds awful ... well, I can see that. But really it's all part of a steep learning curve that leads to a point where it's possible to have a lot of fun collecting a lot of kitties. Are you going to get rich on the Asia launch? No. Some people will, because of thousands of hours they've spent learning everything and creating and testing strategies, and because of the massive bankrolls they have that allow them all kinds of flexibility in adapting to market changes. But for you and I, this is a game we can play to have fun and learn more about Etherium and the blockchain and the crazy world of crypto. I think this is the future. And it excites me!

      Good luck! I hope you continue to play, and continue to make and share videos. And who knows? Maybe now that Glazed Eyes and his bloodred belly are internet famous, someone will seek him out and happily breed with him! In case anyone is interested, here's the link:

  267. Let all newborn kitties be fast!

    CatCreators , 19 February 2018 08:29

      It's a game design. Gen:0 have more value because they can breed out genes and breed faster than the higher gens. I don't think this would make sense in the original game design and indirectly drop the value of gen:0

      ChuckFresco , 19 February 2018 09:42

      Nah, it would mess up the game economics. The more you make a gen 1 equivalent to a gen 34, the more it turns it into a two-tiered game of gen 0 vs everything else. There has to be perks to having your kitties closer to gen 0, to incentivise efficient breeding instead of brute forcing until you get what you want.

      The other thing it prevents is the kitty population exploding way too quickly. They would have to rename the game to CryptoRabbits.

      syd430 , 19 February 2018 10:06

      The high gens have value exactly because of that - there just isn't so many of them. If a gen 90 could breed every minute, there would be a flood of gen 100 and there wouldn't be any return of value, the rarity would be gone. Obviously. This is like the most basic stuff of CK.

      firecz , 19 February 2018 09:49

      No thanks. Perfectly happy with CK exactly as it is.

      DivineFlora , 21 February 2018 19:03

    syd430 , 18 February 2018 15:03

      I'm happy about his visit. I once bought a gen 0 for .1 eth, sold it to him for 1.5 eth, then later bought a new gen 0 for .34 eth.

      thank mr whale

      DERPYBASTARD , 18 February 2018 15:12

      I'm also happy that someone has spent the kind of money he has on the game.

      It benefits those who hold Gen0's, as well as the devs themselves because higher sale prices of their Gen0's means more money to fund CryptoKitty development.

      It has surely inconvenienced those who wanted to buy cheap Gen0's for breeding, which is unfortunate, but the large inflow of new money into the game is a huge plus as well.

      elbak283 , 18 February 2018 16:03

    Jrskow , 18 February 2018 21:34

      I recently did this. The easy part is putting your Kitty on your hardware device; the hard part is getting it off.

      Putting it on is as simple as getting the public Ethereum address of your Ledger and then "donating" your cat to that address from the UI on CryptoKitties.

      Getting it off is trickier if you ever wanted to sell it. We'll be adding some features to https://www.etherbay.com to help support this soon...

  270. So... Just how "exclusive" are MisterPurrfect's?

    Carlini8 , 18 February 2018 14:41

      IMO as a poor player the only people who are worried about this are big whales who want to take all the stock of the fancies for themselves. They probably aren't telling you the limit so one of you 1%'s can't just hurry and breed them all and take the entire market for yourself because you're loaded.

      Not knowing the limit was the risk you decided to take when creating it.

      i_love_mnml , 18 February 2018 14:58

      It would be great if CK could add a serial number to the limited fancies in the future. Announce in advance what the limit is.

      88 of 1,000 for example.

      Initially I thought it was going to be limited to 99 because “99 roses”.

      If this is going to be a yearly thing I guess it may be limited to 2,018 cats. Which is 3x current Santaclaws count = fail. Santa was selling for 0.012 slightly above breeding cost at one point...

      Disclosure: I own 23 of the 194 MisterPurrfect as of typing.

      noob-breeder , 18 February 2018 15:14

      What is that new trait, recessive in Gen:0s?

      kryptofan , 18 February 2018 15:03

      I'd also like to use this time to highlight how difficult it is to search for fancies in the market right now. I've been playing since December 4th and the only way for me to check the Negato/Momo market quickly is to click on one of my own. Not sure how I'd do it if I didn't own them.

      KittyHats-Official , 18 February 2018 17:49

      I spent all my money breeding Phuziqaats and now no one wants to buy them despite there being less of them than the newer exclusives... It depends how much people are willing to pay for them. Ended up selling one of my fancys for 0.02 ETH and now listing a Virgin Gen:6 Phuzi at 0.1 ETH but no one is interested. Its been up there for over 2 weeks.

      As long as they keep bringing out exclusives, the exclusives will become less "exclusive". I'd sell up now at dirt cheap prices and get out.

      update: https://i.imgur.com/1r9etsv.png
      We found that it's only a database issue. The cats ownership is secure because it's on the blockchain So nothing to worry too much about but our engineers are on it right now. No cats have been lost, but the API is currently giving the wrong response We will also put a quick banner on the site the make sure people are aware

      Aleksleon , 18 February 2018 01:53

      Our DB was rolled back by mistake with geth, ownership is safe on the blockchain and we are working on restore sync. Sorry about the mislead data, more details to come.

    ThatLeftClick , 18 February 2018 04:15

      Crptokitties 411 contains loads of valuable information and tools to get started https://cryptokitties411.com/

      You can download a good extension here to see traits and rarity which you run as a script inside Tamper Monkey for chrome: https://github.com/HaJaeKyung/KittyExtension

      Someone posted a question about getting starting with $20. Some of the answers they received might be helpful to you. https://www.reddit.com/r/CryptoKitties/comments/7xnkle/worth_starting_now/

      As far as getting the ETH goes, you could make an account with Coinbase, for example, and buy ether with fiat. https://www.coinbase.com/

      A quick google will show some guides on how to install Metamask, send ETH to your wallet and play. https://coinsutra.com/cryptokitties-cryptocollectibles/ https://mashable.com/2017/12/04/how-to-play-cryptokitties/#HcZygzbwFsqI

      Have a good browse through /r/Cryptokitties as well if you haven't already. There have been plenty of people starting out like you with similar questions and you might some helpful tips there. The amount you put in is up to you. $20 - $30 will let you buy some cats and have a go at playing the game, ie breeding.

      Great time to start, have fun and good luck ! :)))

      CountChicoban , 18 February 2018 07:23

      Hi Newbie,

      I am a Youtube Content Creator for this game and I have made some videos to help out with this game www.youtube.com/chuckfresco

      1. I make videos for beginners on youtube this game this would be the video I would start with: https://youtu.be/FT3CKqBjAfc

      2. ETH costs are relative but I would think about .2 ETH to buy some nice gen:1 adn breed them

      3. Your ETH vendor depends where you live.

      ChuckFresco , 19 February 2018 09:56

      Best way to start is not to start at all unless you are willing to switch your money for a cat picture.

      Sorry, but a Gen1 Violet is worth A LOT more than a Gen1 Nacho

      Gen:1 Nacho's lowest are going for lowest 0.09 while the lowest Gen1 violet goes for 0.55 (fast) and I believe a snappy one was bought for 0.22 today (http://www.kittyexplorer.com/kitties/327762). Considering the R2R3 Violet recessive has also been discontinued Gen1 violets will continue to increase in price while nachocheez recessives are still being produced and will out supply the violet gen0 recessive cats.

  280. MethodID: 0x3d7d3f5a What does this mean in the transaction ???

    ant200709 , 17 February 2018 22:55

      From https://www.4byte.directory/

      Function calls in the Ethereum Virtual Machine are specified by the first four bytes of data sent with a transaction. These 4-byte signatures are defined as the first four bytes of the Keccak hash (SHA3) of the canonical representation of the function signature. Since this is a one-way operation, it is not possible to derive the human readable representation of the function from the 4-byte signature. This database is meant to allow mapping those 4-byte signatures back to their human readable versions.

      Currently only 370 Gen 0 fast for sale. If this buyer was to purchase as many as in the last buying spree we could be out of Gen 0's soon.... Then the fight for the 1 Kitty every 15 minutes begins.

      boom603 , 17 February 2018 15:30

      Yep, same account from the last few days is buying up everything again. Just 10 hours ago you could easily buy a brand new gen 0 with several mewtations for 0.3 ETH.

      They’re going to make a small fortune within the next couple of months when they flip them all.

    okharif , 16 February 2018 22:44

      Hello, I started with .8 Ethereum and have made around 10 eth with around 550 cats left to breed/sell.

      I quit working full-time in september to dabble in the crypto markets and ride the US equity bull market without distractions. I'm also part of a team, Kittyhats that has built an application on top of CK that allows players to attach erc 20 accessory tokens(thinks hats, shoes, etc) to their Kitties!

      I graduated from Yale, I'm 27, and host a stream for this game catered towards veterans and new players alike. Would love for people to hear my story, if possible.

      You can email me at [email protected] if you'd like to set up a call!

      KittyHats-Official , 17 February 2018 02:50

      I got in this game really late, spent way to much eth on way to many shitcats and high transactions and now hold those shitcats as they are not worth anything. 10 out of 10 will definitely fomo again

      cryptocoinmining , 17 February 2018 00:38

      Hey Olga,

      I read all the ost on the channel and just want to add a different perspective you are possibly missing. The notion of just "making money on CryptoKitties" (or any other digital token respectively) is inherently flawed, since it doesn´t take into account the value as a whole.

      Only recently I decided to sell two of my older gen0 cats for 3 ETH, which is basically what I put into the game. I did this because I wanted to buy other tokens. In strongly believe that gen0 cats will sell for more than 1.5 ETH, I just needed liquidity.

      So atm I didn´t "make money", but I still own cats at a current value of around 10-15 ETH.

      Having said this, there are a lot of player who entered in December who believe to have "lost all their money", since they entered the game when gen0 costed around 6 ETH (I believe that was the spark price, I might be wrong). If you read older post from December you get the notion of anger of these people who believed that they were tricked into a Ponzi scheme. Being in crypto for quite some time, this happens all the time to newcomers who didn´t experience the hypecycles (i.e. Bitcoin running all to 20K USD and then down to 7K). If these people don´t panic sell, I believe, will have valuable Kitties in the future. At least more than they currently expect.

      However, if all players would play just "to make money" out of CryptoKitties the prices would drop to 0 quickly. The game lives on players like me, who don´t seek to "cash out" even before the first quarter ended.

      artiscience , 17 February 2018 09:32


      I am a full time gambler - since December I have made most of my money through Crypto Games moving away from the online gambling.

      In the original December rush I made roughly 100 ETH, a lot of which I sold when ETH was about $1200ish.

      Yesterday I sold about 40 Kittens for 1.5 ETH. CK is my most profitable game for sure.

  287. Kitty Evaluator Tool

    jodiferous11 , 16 February 2018 22:28

      Thanks for the tool Jodi! Love the mutation match-up sheet too :D I'm curious, how Low Gen is low, to you now? For example, given the difficulty (or near impossibility - I haven't calculated it) of a kitten inheriting a full set of diamond family jewels at say Gen 1 - 5, would Gen 20 - 30 still be considered low? I can't find the breeder profile now but I've seen at least that one person so far who appears to be chasing diamond sets and breeding cats with high jewel combos into the 70 - 150 Gen range. For me, atm the Gen would not really be an issue if they bred a full set of diamonds with mewtations as well, for example. Obviously if they did it at a lower Gen it would be a more impressive feat, but curious to see what other people's take is on this, and how low gen other jewel/mewtation chaser people are currently breeding at.

    CountChicoban , 17 February 2018 05:22

      The position in the json file of the youngest hotrods maybe is the key:

      last one now is kitti 521553, position 418. .... ex:


      but it seems you have to look many of them to find the max number, if the enhanced attribute has a -1 is no-jewel, if the id is the same of the cat and a positive position number is a mewtation, a new bloodline. I am not sure, but maybe is the right way.

      Try to find, the youngest with the mewtation for hotrod

      the diamond sent me to kitty 3002 . Diamond is bigger that any other family jewel. If you want to get a mewtation, has to be in a totally different family (different ancestors).

    Efex83 , 16 February 2018 21:56

      You need 2 kitties to start breeding, you need eth to breed (.008 eth per breeding, specifically), you need eth to pay for transaction fees to sell... you can't play this game with nothing but gifted cats.

      ashkestar , 16 February 2018 22:39

      Add eth to metamask. Buy two kitties. Breed them. Watch videos and read faq. Too much info to spoon feed you and doubtful anyone will gift you a cat as it costs eth to send them.

      Well it seems like you are breeding 3/4 of the same traits (2 grims, 2 orangesoda, 2 birman). Where is the hotrod?

      EDIT: You might want to link the cats so people can help you out better.

      weareallfungi , 16 February 2018 01:57

      try dominant tiger and recessive hotrod.

      kryptofan , 16 February 2018 02:37

      Check your kitties here to make sure you have a decent chance of hitting the fancy, and if not then try some different breeding pairs: https://kittycalc.co/

      Good luck!

  300. Family Jewels - what I am looking for and investing in...

    McDuff_71 , 15 February 2018 15:34

      Which would you value higher - Gilded Mewtation or Diamond Catribute? It seems like the Gilded Mewtation could be worth slightly more because it has that 1 in 10 element to it, but the idea of coming from the source is also pretty cool.

      ddddddjim , 15 February 2018 16:32

      I wonder if at some stage another feature will come out which shows the cat's lineage in relation to founder cats. ie: 99 different stamps relating to each founder, which also appear on directly related kitties, with the style of stamp changing to reflect generations. Children and grandchildren would receive a much higher stamp, the next 5 generations a high stamp, and so on. This is originally what I took the 'Family jewels' to mean before it came out.

      CountChicoban , 16 February 2018 00:13

      Loving the new feature too. I started to put emoji in my kittens titles to identify them by their jewels until someone brings out an add-on. This makes breeding some really cool high gen cats worthwhile too. I pm'd you also.

      CountChicoban , 15 February 2018 16:10

      ...very very valuable, even more than the fancys imo...

      McDuff_71 , 15 February 2018 16:25

      Diamond mewtation is the first 10 kitties to have a new trait, yeah? So 10x the number of traits (ie, super dang rare). If I did the math right, 2480 total.

      ashkestar , 16 February 2018 22:42

      there are so many cats with these mewtations, doesn't seem like it will add so much to the value right meow

      smtpbay , 17 February 2018 00:07

  302. Are they now worth more? How do jewels work?

    kakbald , 15 February 2018 19:14

      Mewtattions are the new rarity indicator officially , the cat is out of the bag the hacker did monitor those genes in cat for about 1 month thats all the breeding of new traits exploded. Now we have a new ranking in this area. Family gems! Means if your cat has a diamond mewtation it is one of a kind for ever.

      I'm clicking them and nothing :)

      firecz , 15 February 2018 08:38

  311. Worth starting now?

    BL4C_KN1GHT , 15 February 2018 05:59

      Yes. With $20 you absolutely can.

      In my experience you can profit from siring fees on good kittens, in order to buy more kittens or do what you like with the ETH. So what you should do is:

      1) Buy the best possible kitty you can for ~$19

      Such a kitty would be something like: Low Gen, some jewels and rare traits, one that visually appeals to you. If it has lots of jewels it is probably more valuable even at a higher Gen. See: @jodiferous Jewel explanation: https://cryptokitties411.com/2018/02/14/how-do-family-jewels-work/

      Since you'll be siring your kitty in order to make a profit to buy more kitties, it will help you see quicker returns if you pick one with a cooldown speed of fast/swift/snappy, as it may be sired multiple times a day. With a slower cooldown, you just have to be more patient before you can sire it again, but it also means you might be able to afford a cat with better traits and therefore it will be more desirable to people wanting to breed from it. It's a trade off and up to you.

      2) Look at the marketplace to see what price similar kitties to yours are being sired out for. Decide on a price for yours which is at the low end of that range, ie 1st page in the marketplace for similar traits, so that people will see your kitty easily. I find 0.003 - 0.005 works best for nice kittens with a couple of rares traits and low gen, but it is dependent on what kind of kitty you find and how urgently you're hoping to sire it.

      3) When gas price safe low is at or below 1 or 2, list your kitty in a siring auction: make sure you change the GWEI to 1 (or whatever the safe low is at the time) in the Metamask dialogue that appears. Safe low gas price can be found here https://ethgasstation.info/

      That way, listing in the siring auction should cost you no more than ~$0.20

      4) Relax and wait ! Take a nap... Browse some kittens. Eye up your next purchase.... ;)

      5) When you receive the funds from your first successful siring auction, list your kitten to sire again. Repeat this process, until you have enough ETH to buy another kitty, and sire that too. Or maybe you'll want to breed your two together? Just always make sure you leave enough ETH to list in the siring auction.

      This works in my experience, and you'll be able to grow your empire :) Good Luck!! Hope you find some good kittens.

      CountChicoban , 15 February 2018 08:14

      you can buy a few cats for $20. cryptokitties is good for learning about Ethereum, ETH, smart contracts, using a cryptowallet (metamask in this case) and using gas on the network. all good lessons to learn if you don't already know and well worth $20. plus you'll get a couple cats you can show off to friends. Count Chicoban gives a good sumary of how to actually make money with the $20 in kitties though.

      ddddddjim , 15 February 2018 08:57

      Right now only Gen 0 kitties are going up like crazy. Nobody knows if or when the price will go down again.

      $20 is probably not enough. You can buy kitties, but obviously no rare ones and breeding costs about $7 so you can guess how much you can do with $20.

      Earning ether is very hard with a low investment, especially now that nobody pays for siring anymore.

    CSBIrd34 , 14 February 2018 07:09

      Go to your address on etherscan and click on the Internal Transactions tab. It does not show up in the main tab, but the ether is definitely added to your balance. (Minus a 3.75% commission for using the marketplace)

  338. how to calculate how rare is a cat?

    warggg , 13 February 2018 23:28

      it is kinda rare. mostly because the wuvme trait is fairly new. it looks like that trait will be fairly popular. it also has cerulian which isn't a very common color. that said, there is nothing particularly special or rare about it that would make it worth more than other cats with the same traits. it is just a normal cat with a couple cool traits. i'm no expert, but that's my take.

      ddddddjim , 14 February 2018 00:01

      being gen5 makes it less rare as others can also work from gen1 cats to make a similar cat. However, if that was gen2 it would be a tough cat to duplicate. And if it was gen1, really really tough cat to duplicate and would be extremely rare.

      Btw. what makes you think that people here play CK only? I have stakes in other games, too, but CryptoCelebrities is just a cheap copy cat, nothing really genuine there. It´s crypto punks with stolen pictures instead of real art.

      2) Preparing for the bingo of kitty #555555, less than 45k kitties left. Replenish my breeding stocks after i tried but failed to win Cathena :)

      3) Gifting five dollar kitties to afk people who love crypto, but are too afraid to start somewhere - best feeling ever!~

      tabsa , 13 February 2018 11:42

      I have an ETH wallet on my phone. When I'm visiting friends, I like giving out $10 of ETH to people who've never used it before & have cryptokitties be their first ETH experience. Fun way to introduce ETH transactions, gas price/gas limit/ethgasstation.info/stuck transactions/etc.

      I've personally put about 1ETH into this game. I mostly just check the gen0 market every few weeks. If the prices seem lower than usual, I might buy one. (I have 3 gen0s atm) I'm planning on reselling most of them closer to/after November once the last gen0 comes out.

      I think a lot of people had their intro to ETH via cryptokitties. And a lot of these people will value their cryptokitties well into the future. Some who later become ether-rich will likely want a gen0 to remember how they started and there's a very finite supply of them.. We'll see whether or not I come out ahead here but idgaf because I've learned a lot and had a lot of fun!

      bohendo , 13 February 2018 21:49

      The new tier-2 trait has been discovered, and it's the same mouth the pink kitty on the CryptoKitties.co homepage has. I'm calling it "jawdrop" until it has an official name. Nobody has yet successfully mutated that with cheeky to discover the tier-3 as far as I can tell! Who will be the first?

  343. breeding price vs cheapest price = why this difference!!

    rabah127 , 12 February 2018 22:51

      Some people are breeding kitties together in hopes of getting a rare cat or a fancy cat, but get a cat that isn't valuable instead. They sell it off at a loss to get some of the ETH back. When they do breed a fancy cat, it will repay their losses.

      madogvelkor , 12 February 2018 23:55

      If all cat were sold >0.008 ETH then there will be no risk playing the game and 100% of people would be profitable. Fortunatelly this is not the case and when there is a 25% chance to have a cat worth a lot, there is also a 25% chance to have a cat worth minimum price.

      No risk no gain, IMHO the minimum price will always be <0.008 ETH unless there is so many demand that offer can't sustain it

      Don't want to say the amount, but definitely more that people who already posted. While my ETH is wrapped up in kitties, I have rare kitties and firmly believe I could sell my account for easily 100% profit of my total investment. I also know several larger players who would consider buying my account as well.

      arthur5052018 , 12 February 2018 10:44

      Now you realize you probably won’t be able to sell it for more than the cost to breed. Hopefully the market for fancies will improve but once the combination of traits is discovered it is pretty easy to create the fancy if you use the tools in the sidebar.

      spareamatch , 13 February 2018 19:15

      Hold it through this week at least. It’s not worth much right now, but CK is launching in China soon. No one knows how that will affect the fancy market, but if there’s a gold rush there like there was here, a lot of stuff may go up in value.

      "Transaction Error. Exception thrown in contract code. Gas limit set dangerously high. Approving this transaction is likely to fail."

      I know about gas limit, but didn't want to adjust it due to the exception error, so I cancelled transaction. Gas was something like 750k

      Using metamask firefox extension.

      Seems like only really expensive ones are buyable

      EuSouAssimReddit , 10 February 2018 21:54

      if you click on the button to buy a cat and it doesn't work, that means someone else has purchased it already but the database hasn't removed it from the cats available for sale. this is not unusual if you are sorting by cheapest and are trying to buy the least expensive cat. keep trying, you will find one you like at a good price.

      ddddddjim , 11 February 2018 02:41

      Is nothing at all happening when you press the button?

      I've noticed in the last couple of days that metamask has gone glitchy on CK (in my browser anyway). Press the buy button a few times. I've found pressing it 5 or 6 times over a minute or so will eventually bring up metamask. (You won't be paying multiple times! You confirm the purchase in the metamask popup).

      (I'm using Firefox extension).

      If someone has beat you to it but it's still on the marketplace, there's usually a message along the lines of "are you sure you want to proceed, you may not receive the kitty you're purchasing".

  363. How do you feel?

    kittytzki , 09 February 2018 18:08

      Here is my opinion since I've been playing for two month :

      Price have decreased all along December until it reached a bottom in the beginning of January.

      Since then is has stabilized and consolidated :

      • Major problem is being addressed (i.e scalabilty of ETH transaction)
      • Game has proven it is alive : frequent new traits, new features, marketing, ...
      • Strong community is being created : a lot of people are creating content : stream, web site, browser addin, ...

      Recently we can feel that price is increasing : when you check the market there is hardly 30 cat <0.004 ETH while few weeks ago there was hundreds of 0.003 cats.

      Reasons ?

      • Deployment of the game in China
      • New features : familiy fewels, new fancy cats, ...
      • Strong community growing litlle by little

      So to conclude it is time to FOMO and especially FOMOMO

      bibdieu , 09 February 2018 19:07

      Demand exceeded the supply during the first few weeks so there was a gold rush which brought even more players into the game. Now there are many more kitties and much fewer players. Prices will continue to fall until demand exceeds supply. Some people theorize than a China rollout will cause this, but it's doubtful due to months of hoarding. As soon as prices rise people will begin cashing out. Theoretically once Gen 0s stop being born we might see a rise in value for very low-gen kitties, but I anticipate better versions of collectible token games will enter the market before Cryptokitties makes a turnaround.

      mpbh , 09 February 2018 18:58

      The game makes a lot more sense now. Like you, I got in during the gold rush when none of us knew what to do. I had a couple shitty, too-high gen cats at the end of it that weren’t worth anything (though being that they have decent traits and are sub 25,000, I still hope they may someday have value).

      Now, you can buy cats sensibly and have some expectation of getting a return. Learn what traits sell, which ones mutate into rarer traits, and so on. Buy only low-gen kitties. There are strategies aside from ‘everyone wants cats just buy whatever!’

      Low gas prices help a ton - yes, some of my kitties go for less than .008 eth, but as long as some go for more, I’m not taking a loss like I would have at 20+ gas price.

      ashkestar , 09 February 2018 22:05

      Actually those Kittyes who we bought right now at the beginning of this game will be the most expensive in the game in future if you keep the Kitty exactly like he is right now since there will never be something like them. There will be generations after generations but never again those generations and traits , the kittyes will have some mutations and to have a pure kitty like our kittyes we bought now will be to hard for they to have . So if you think smart you can think in time that any kitty from the beginning of this game will be more than 2-3 ETH each or may be more high and high price ( can be 10-100 ETH ) since they will seeking something to Breed/Sire with the first Kittyes . PS. The game is HYPE now ( is the beginning) i will keep mine exactly like they are. Enjoy! Give to Corleone a Like :) https://www.cryptokitties.co/kitty/498537

      peucoz , 09 February 2018 16:50

      And if you use lower gas the transaction costs should never be more than like 29-60 cents

      Slabmason710 , 09 February 2018 17:39

      .008 to breed and then the fee your looking at would be the Sire fee which is ontop of the minimum breeding fee

      Slabmason710 , 09 February 2018 17:39

      It should be easier to get started without investing a looot of ETH.

    ishaan452 , 09 February 2018 04:41

      It appears that someone created a bot that performed well over 100 breedings in a matter of minutes. It was sent from this address https://etherscan.io/txs?a=0x1589e6b7465f94a5bfcc09a1f64865e366cdbc6b&p=8 check for the transactions that include 0.008 ether.

      Player 0x1589e6b7465f94a5bfcc09a1f64865e366cdbc6b makes 78 breeding between 2018-02-06 14:46:44 - 14:54:30. 78 breedind at 8 minutes. I think, it is not such criminal.

      But after the kitty 500000 was born, player 0x1589e6b7465f94a5bfcc09a1f64865e366cdbc6b make transfer to 0x8a1fd9c947b6fed951142719249441008eec8087 at 2018-02-06 18:07:01.

      After 0x8a1fd9c947b6fed951142719249441008eec8087 make transfer to 0xe4b34eed9790b950ee316a7edc7227b586a4b6ef at 2018-02-07 01:50:48.

      Will the Chinese game be the same game we're playing? Or is it a separate entity due to the restrictions on virtual currency in China?

      I am very excited about these new developments, but it would be great to understand how it will be implemented.

  381. The Disappearing Cat!!!

    Phillips_inc , 08 February 2018 00:18

      probably just lag on the website. How long has it been?

      weareallfungi , 08 February 2018 00:26

      When I look up the cat, in the place where it normally displays owner, it says, "sire contract processing". I'd just give it some time. It will likely sort itself out and return to you.

      I think there are some updates that are being rolled out on the website right now. Weird stuff might happen for a bit and there might be a long lag, but things usually end up where they're supposed to.

      jodiferous11 , 08 February 2018 00:26

      Great news I just got my Kitty back. Wierd situation though.

      Phillips_inc , 08 February 2018 00:31

      That happens to me all the time, but it usually only lags for a minute or so. When you start an auction, you're actually transferring ownership of your kitty to the auction contract, and when you cancel the auction it transfers back to you. The CryptoKitties site has to keep track of this on the blockchain so it knows which kitties are actually "yours" even if they're in the auction contracts. It seems like sometimes their website database lags behind the blockchain a little bit and takes some time to catch up with these transfers.

      It's the same thing that happens when one of your kitties is technically ready to breed (cooldown has run out and giveBirth has already been called on the contract if your kitty was pregnant) but still shows as "Resting" or "Bun in the oven" on the site for a few minutes.

      stevenh512 , 08 February 2018 21:35

      Tell him to check the contracts/tokens

      SpellsThatWrong , 08 February 2018 05:57

      You can see whether the kitties are "associated" (for lack of a better term) with your friend's account by using the following site:

      Here's an example URL that shows the cats "owned" by my Ethereum account that's stored in TrustWallet on my phone:

  384. New Gene Pairs

    Phillips_inc , 07 February 2018 15:53

      Thanks for the 411 shout-out! I'll write a how-to for the trait chart today for those who missed poopiecat's and jihoz's explanation.

      Here's how I know where the new traits belong in the trait chart: Each kitty is created with a genome that maps to traits in a specific way. When "tiger" came out yesterday, I used my Gene Reader to identify what kai code was mapped to the "tiger". (The Gene Reader uses an API call directly to the smart contract rather than using kittydex. The spreadsheet converts the genetic code into kai.) So, basically, I put in the Kitty ID of a tiger cat and it told me the pattern gene was a "2". So then I went into the trait chart, found the intersection of pattern and 2, and typed in "tiger".

      I then could instantly tell that there was no current trait that mutates with tiger.

      Here's another way you can use this information. Sometimes, Gen 0's are released with new recessive genes. No one can see the gene's visible cattribute, BUT you can immediately tell if it has a mutation partner. For example, let's say you found a Gen 0 with recessive gene "3" for body color. No one knows what that body color will be once it becomes a dominant gene, but you can immediately start breeding it with "orangesoda" because you know it'll have a small chance of mutating with that. If it does, you'd be the first with the body color mutation "i".

      Cheers! Jodiferous

  386. Feature Request : Allow people to bid on Kitties

    tldrtldrtldr , 07 February 2018 00:36

      A similar feature is planned as part of the "watch list" that is in the works.

      DERPYBASTARD , 07 February 2018 01:12

      Agreed. This would be a nice feature. I too have wanted it. But if I understand how this works, I see why this would be hard to do.

      You would have to lock up your ETH to make the buy so that it would be guaranteed available in the event your bid went through. There also may be additional ETH required to check the price once it is met. And this doesn't even address the fact that if you did it that way (what seems to be the cheapest way) your cat could have been long sold by then.

      And I think if you continually check the price, that takes gas and could make things very expensive.

      I'd be interested in hearing an official explanation though - for those of us who love to know how this all works.

      I have wondered if a compromise solution might work. Price alerts. This could happen all on the cryptokitties backend (not on the blockchain). Essentially, I set an alert for a cat to notify me if a price reaches a certain point. Then, I could go make the buy.

      Of course, now that I say that, I wonder if you couldn't do a hybrid solution where the website backend does the price checking and executes the contract bid if the conditions are met. You would still need to lock up the ETH for the sale though.

    ponywiser , 05 February 2018 20:28

      • Low ID numbers
      • Vanity ID numbers
      • Cats with discontinued traits at low generations
      • Cats with doc purr modified genes or "original artwork/misprint/OG" (Ganado 11 cats total in all gens, Serpent 89 total gen-1 & more)
      • High generation cats (100+)
      • Gen1 cats with 3/4 mutations
      • Gen1 cats with traits that require founder jags
      • Founder jags
      • Beautiful med-gen cats with amazing traits and good colors
      • Low-gen cats with two or more rare trait combinations
      • Low - med gen purebred cats with single/double/triple purebred genes
      • Family jewels
      • Firsts
      • Kitties with hats that are extremely limited/sold out from https://kittyhats.co

      New fancys ant low numbers under 5000. Keep value

      niels056 , 05 February 2018 21:06

      lower gens tbh. Looks too

      _SHWEPP_ , 05 February 2018 22:27

      Kitty combinations only matter if they lead to a fancy or if they particularly stand out because they obviously go well together aestetically. Having the only orangesoda royalblue thicccbrowz mainecoon spangled in the game doesn’t make it at all valuable. But grats on the mainecoon (that’s probably what will determine the value of your kitty).

      Generation is super important when talking anout rarity because some traits and trait combos only ever have a low percent change to appear at certain generations. Try to find one of those trait charts that float around that tells you what tier mutation each trait is and go for traits at the lowest possible generation for those traits.

      Good luck, have fun, don’t worry too much about rarity now IMO. Value is ephemeral: see what a kitty is worth on the market today and either sell it for that price or choose to collect it.

      The way this game works, anything rare today might be bred 100 times over the next year and be as common as anything else. Things that aren’t subject to this include “first of their kind” kitties, “misprint” kitties where a trait appearance was changed quickly (old “pouty” doesn't count though maybe in 10 years it will be considered rare), and unique special ID numbers.

      Just look at the market. What are similar kitties going for? If you don't know how to search the market, you should probably not be trying to make money with investments.

      twinklehood , 04 February 2018 04:48

      I wouldn't panic just yet. CryptoKitties is expanding into new countries soon which will hopefully increase demand. Your kitty may decrease in value for a few weeks and then increase to more than what you paid for it. Maybe. No one really knows.

      You can try putting it on the market right now and see what happens, but don't get too scared if no one bites. This market will likely fluctuate a lot in the next few months.

      In the meantime, learn as much as you can about these kitties so you can make informed decisions. Check out Kitty411 for resources and info. When in doubt, love and enjoy the kitties you own and never invest more than you're willing to lose. :)

      jodiferous11 , 04 February 2018 07:40

      A new GEN 0 now will costs you 0.082 so selling now you'll take a loss. In my opinion GEN 0's are for the long game.

      nightporter , 04 February 2018 13:21

      If you're not into playing or ... scared as you say...forget about the game until november when gen0 production will stop.

      mirel1985 , 04 February 2018 14:21

      be very scared, not only gen0 prices are down and down... ethereum price as well is down very fast.

  404. KittyCalc.co Breeding Calculator - New Updates

    poopiecryptocats , 03 February 2018 15:05

      I love what you guys are doing. The pie chart of trait possibilities is a super-solid design and infographic element. I also think this calculator does a really good job of helping users know what different traits mean by visually representing them.

      My 2 cents (if it helps):

      1. It would be great to see the cat's pictures when you put in the catID like on https://cattributes.org/. I can't ever remember which numbers are which so it gets confusing.

      2. A 'switch' button for sire and matron, since the percentages can work out differently depending on which cat is the sire.

      3. I really like the ability to add another pair on https://cattributes.org/. It is great for trying out different combos and checking them out at a glance.

      4. It would be nice to compact the design. I like being able to see it all at a glance and not have to scroll back and forth.

  408. Is it better to breed or sire?

    ponywiser , 02 February 2018 23:42

      With sire you don’t pay anything but transaction fee, with breeding you pay additional 0.008 with no guarantee you can sell the baby for at least 0.008

      so breeding for rare kitties might be more profitable for a long run, but siring doesn’t require a lot of investment

      NARW_Bombard , 03 February 2018 01:59

      If you have patience and manage your gas price and minimum price you're willing to accept for siring, I think that's less risky. But depending on how you like to play and how much risk you're willing to take, maybe also less fun.

      If you're breeding, let's just assume you're breeding two of your own kitties here just so we don't have to deal with siring fees. You're paying gas to create the transaction, let's assume you manage your gas costs and can get this transaction mined for 25 cents. You're also paying an autobirth fee that goes to whoever calls giveBirth on your kitty when your cooldown runs out, currently that's 0.008, let's call it 8 dollars just for the sake of keeping it simple. At this point you've spent at least $8.25 to breed two of your own kitties, with a small chance (if you're an advanced user running some kind of autobirth daemon) of recovering about $8 of it. If you know what you're doing (or just get lucky) there's a chance you could get a really valuable kitty for such a small investment, but there's also a chance you end up with a kitty worth a dollar or less.

  409. New Eye color "coralsunrise", but background "topaz"

      yasminenad , 03 February 2018 00:48

      Not the first -- the first couple Sapphires had a topaz background for a little while as well and then they were retroactively fixed. It's only the kitty graphics themselves (and the Bio, I imagine) that get locked in - the background color (and shadow) are just front end flavor.

  416. When does purchase price get determined?

    dont_hate_scienceguy , 02 February 2018 01:35

      The price gets determined when the transaction goes through. Using your example, the contract would send back 0.05 ether to your address upon purchase.

      /// @dev Computes the price and transfers winnings. /// Does NOT transfer ownership of token. function _bid(uint256 _tokenId, uint256 _bidAmount)     internal     returns (uint256) {     // Get a reference to the auction struct     Auction storage auction = tokenIdToAuction[_tokenId];      // Explicitly check that this auction is currently live.     // (Because of how Ethereum mappings work, we can't just count     // on the lookup above failing. An invalid _tokenId will just     // return an auction object that is all zeros.)     require(_isOnAuction(auction));      // Check that the bid is greater than or equal to the current price     uint256 price = _currentPrice(auction);     require(_bidAmount >= price);      // Grab a reference to the seller before the auction struct     // gets deleted.     address seller = auction.seller;      // The bid is good! Remove the auction before sending the fees     // to the sender so we can't have a reentrancy attack.     _removeAuction(_tokenId);      // Transfer proceeds to seller (if there are any!)     if (price > 0) {         // Calculate the auctioneer's cut.         // (NOTE: _computeCut() is guaranteed to return a         // value <= price, so this subtraction can't go negative.)         uint256 auctioneerCut = _computeCut(price);         uint256 sellerProceeds = price - auctioneerCut;          // NOTE: Doing a transfer() in the middle of a complex         // method like this is generally discouraged because of         // reentrancy attacks and DoS attacks if the seller is         // a contract with an invalid fallback function. We explicitly         // guard against reentrancy attacks by removing the auction         // before calling transfer(), and the only thing the seller         // can DoS is the sale of their own asset! (And if it's an         // accident, they can call cancelAuction(). )         seller.transfer(sellerProceeds);     }      // Calculate any excess funds included with the bid. If the excess     // is anything worth worrying about, transfer it back to bidder.     // NOTE: We checked above that the bid amount is greater than or     // equal to the price so this cannot underflow.     uint256 bidExcess = _bidAmount - price;      // Return the funds. Similar to the previous transfer, this is     // not susceptible to a re-entry attack because the auction is     // removed before any transfers occur.     msg.sender.transfer(bidExcess);      // Tell the world!     AuctionSuccessful(_tokenId, price, msg.sender);      return price; }

  417. Why are some kitties absolutely same?

    BaterieCZ , 02 February 2018 00:31

  418. Fees for actions

    PM-GOOGLE-PLAY-CODES , 01 February 2018 23:29

      If you're paying more than 50 cents to list an auction on CryptoKitties, you're doing it wrong. Wait until there's less network congestion and get your transaction confirmed with 1 gwei gas prices in a few minutes to an hour. Just yesterday I had a transaction confirm with a gas price as low as 42 wei (it was just a test and it took 10 hours, I wouldn't try it again, but it cost me less than a thousandth of a cent in fees).

      stevenh512 , 01 February 2018 23:57

      Depends on the tx fees. Check the eth gas station link to determine costs to list for siring / selling. Breeding fees are currently set at .008 I believe (the fee is determined by the Axiom Zen Multi Level Marketing Masters and can be changed at their discretion.

      Currently I'd say save your eth on breeding as the only ones profiting from those breeding are the ones who have knowledge of how genes work / mutations / probability of passing traits on.

      You also have the people who are raking in the eth from buying up the gen 0s with rare traits, breeding new -artificially rare- genes, simply because they were just introduced and selling off anything over gen 2 with those "rare" traits to naive users thinking they are getting rare cats.

      Some of the cats listed people are just trying to get rid of in hopes of breaking even on the game, while others are just so undesirable they don't care about the loss.

      There are lots of factors that are in play so if you're looking to profit educate yourself or prepare to lose.

  425. What to consider rare.

    lookitsme14 , 01 February 2018 07:08

      I have a royalblue manx, and I have a henna. I could breed them, there are no Royalblue-henna-manx's, but that doesn't mean someone is going to buy it...

      If it looks great someone will probably pay more

      Jensen2185 , 01 February 2018 07:27

      Realistically, rarity is a combination of generation number and tier of the trait (see the handy chart here - https://www.reddit.com/r/CryptoKitties/comments/7uefvk/all_known_body_traits_kittycalcco/ ) - The farther right a trait is, the more rare it will be, particularly at lower generations. In some cases it won't even be possible at the lowest generations. But value and rarity are not the same thing at all. A good looking kitty is worth more. A super rare trait like babypuke might not be valuable at all because ... babypuke. Rarity is just one part of value. Having unique combinations is really only valuable when you happen to stumble upon a previously undiscovered Fancy kitty. Having the world's only Alien Hintomint Beard Savannah ... well, nobody will really care unless that just happens to be a really stunning looking breed. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and so it is with value as well. But rarity? There are so many traits that even with nearly 500,000 kitties most every kitty can be considered rare in some way. Which means none of them really are, unless it's for solid reasons that involve scarcity and genetics (and unique combinations of traits at higher generations involves neither of those beyond a superficial level).

  426. Kitty Investing - Discontinued Traits

    Jensen2185 , 31 January 2018 23:15

      We don't know if a specific trait has been discontinued, there are 32 possibilities for a gen, so maybe in the future a new wave of 'old' traits could be in gen0's again

      who knows?

      kryptofan , 31 January 2018 23:46

      Also, I tried to tell a newer player that Gen10+ Ganado kitties aren't worth much. They sent me a screenshot from a breeding calculator showing 4 stars for Ganado.

      You have to understand these calculator sites use the current supply to estimate value/rarity. If something is brand new, it seems like it is very rare. But it doesn't last long.

      Jensen2185 , 31 January 2018 23:56

      Unless I'm seeing things, I believe the traits are discontinued once a certain number of mutations occur. If you pay close attention to the unknown categories in the dex you'll start to notice a pattern. For example, one category seems to mirror mouth and another seems like the body types. Since these genes also mutate, potentially due to being released by the CK team, it looks like the associated Kai are then released into the general population as dominate or recessive traits. What do you think?

      matteblackale , 01 February 2018 03:23

      The breeding volume was much higher in the beginning then it is now.....

      matteblackale , 01 February 2018 03:24

      How are the traits 'discontinued' if you could still get them via breeding? I know more gen 0 cats w/these particular traits will not be released, but it's not as if someone couldn't breed more jaguar cats if they had the eth and the inclination. I don't think newbs should just go after gen - new traits either, because you can't tell how 'rare' a new trait actually is, but I don't think you should consider any trait to be discontinued because more cats with those traits can still be bred.

  431. i find some unfair parts in the game

    flywu , 31 January 2018 11:39

      Hi there!

      The genetic algorithm is essentially completely discovered by the community thus far.

      The only thing the devs have that we don't is the release schedule for traits.

      However, regardless of that, the devs signed contracts that disallow them from playing the game or owning kitties, for the reasons above.

      Hope that helps!


      Kitttyverse , 31 January 2018 12:01

      Because we know the algorithm.

      I'm not sure if profit on people who don't spend a minute researching before investing money would be unfair, though.

      Enter some kitty giveaways to get some kitties and then ... there is no step 2. You can't do anything in the game right now without some ETH to spend. If you do have a little bit of ETH then start reading everything at https://cryptokitties411.com so you learn what is what and what mistakes to avoid and how to stretch out your ETH. Good luck! It may not be cheap, but it is REALLY fun!

      My better ones are siring but still for super cheap. I entered Kimbo Slice into the contest he'll be tough to beat

      strawhats , 31 January 2018 06:26

      Update: 20 entries so far!

      Reminder: The first 56 entries get a guaranteed spot in the bracket. The remaining entries will have to battle for the remaining 8 spots.

      jodiferous11 , 31 January 2018 04:53

      I sold the kitty I submitted to the battle, can I replace it with my new best fighter? :(

  434. Does anyone know how the makers get money?

    bstro1 , 31 January 2018 01:59

      Here's a copypaste from a comment I wrote about the money flow:

      • The gen 0 kitties are created by a smart contract owned by the creators of the game. The profile that holds these kitties is called "Kitty Clock". Any Ether used to purchase kitties from this clock goes to the developers.
      • There is also a similar account called "CK COO" which owned the first 100 cats, called the Founder cats. Any purchases from this account also went to the developers.
      • There is a 3.75% commission on every transaction that goes through the CryptoKitty smart contract. This commission also goes to the developers.

      And things not for the developers:

      • The flat breeding fee (currently 0.008 ether) goes towards the people who call the giveBirth function when a matron is ready to give birth. This system was created so people can get rewarded for helping the blockchain and CryptoKitties.
      • Transaction fees used to process your transactions go to the Ethereum miners.

      DERPYBASTARD , 31 January 2018 02:03

      Every 15 minutes someone pays a couple hundred for new gen 0 kitties. All of that cash flow minus expenses I would bet they're doing great. It was built by 12 people. Not to mention someone paid 117k for the first cat

      strawhats , 31 January 2018 02:04

      I believe any exchange between users has a 3.75% commission fee

      1000 to 2000 also valuable 2000 to 10000 will also gain value

      franckgant , 30 January 2018 23:25

      Also.. think about this.. low gen kitties are selling for very low prices.. Ive often seen GEN:1's for under .01 . But as the year moves on I think people are going to start to realize that the GEN:0's will stop being created near the end of this year.. and along with them no more new gen:1's... gen:2's... etc.. I think it will be common after that for people to start working with gen:30.. gen:50.. maybe gen:100's and these low gens will be very very rare.

      Keep breeding it yourself and some of your misses might come up as Mistletoe if you do it right! And always use kittycalc.co to make sure you’ve got the best possible breeding partner to hit the traits you want and check the value of other traits you might hit.

  444. Let's start breeding...

    MechlerMX , 29 January 2018 20:49

      Start slow and learn to use cryptokittydex.com to understand the kitty DNA. There are other sites that give you an estimate of what the possible babies will be from two kitties, but it makes a big difference if you can read and understand the DNA yourself.

      Find a trait you like, learn what traits need to be combined to create it, look for low generation kitties that can be used to make that trait. Start with something simple, try to create a Gen4 Onyx.

      Buying Gen0's is a great investment when they are cheap (less than 0.08) and even when they reach the slowest level you can still breed them once per week.

      Jensen2185 , 29 January 2018 21:59

  445. Breeding through contract

    balresch , 29 January 2018 19:42

      Siblings cannot breed together, and children cannot breed with their parents. Your transaction failed because you tried breeding two siblings together. Keep it in mind in the future :)

      PS the 0.008 wasn't taken off your balance if the transaction failed. Only the transaction fee is taken off. Actual Tx Cost/Fee: 0.000155225 Ether ($0.18)

      Interesting! So you've bred a lot of aliens.

      I've been interested in the crypto kitties, but don't really partake as it seems a pretty expensive game.

      Of all the aliens that you breed, are you able to sell them off? If so what are the returns as opposed to breeding fees?

      Or are you sitting on all those cats for investment?

      TrashIsland_DrMoreau , 29 January 2018 11:01

      This is great, thank you

      codenutz , 29 January 2018 16:51

      Amazing man. This was illuminating.

      If kittydex is to be believed you own 14% of all PhuZiqaats (aliens) in existence (55 of 384) and I am thinking that percentage is actually likely rise if you continue your breeding enterprise. I could imagine you owning such a significant portion of the PZ population that you could actually drive the market price up. Whatever you decide to do you are definitely blazing a trail for other fancy breeders. Thanks for sharing

      (I actually stumbled on your profile yesterday and this post today totally separately. I was baffled by your army of aliens yesterday and now I get it)

  448. How profitable is Crypto Kitties

    Govind7 , 29 January 2018 14:28

      I guess there are people still making profit, but one probably needs a pretty steep investment to get going. Also, those people are not likely to share their strategy with you and this sub (I am not one of them).

      balresch , 29 January 2018 15:04

      To be profitable you need to breed and be lucky ^

      bibdieu , 29 January 2018 19:34

      cryptokitties is a new game.Blockchain a new tech right now the prices are still cheap but cryptokitties is launching in china in a few weeks some people are buying kitties with the number 8 a lucky number in china.If you want to invest you can buy gen 8 kitties they are still very cheap and if the game is a hit in china prices might go up in value

      franckgant , 29 January 2018 20:23

      When you become a pro, you can generally break even. If you get extremely lucky, discover a new fancy cat, you could potentially make some money. If you buy Gen0 kitties and they have traits that get discontinued in a couple months, you could potentially sell them for a profit also.

      If you are new and start buying high-gen stuff that looks cool or traits that are brand new you'll probably lose money unfortunately

  449. any thoughts on cryptokitties user base new players prices the game is getting more popular amount new players?

    franckgant , 28 January 2018 16:55

      The best way to get new players is to reduce the barriers to entry. They can't do much about the natural barriers to using Ethereum but they can make them easier to buy (especially in "bulk" or at least pairs) and make really cheap entry-level kitties.

      They could also create some sort of free minigame that uses the kitties and isn't used to generate sellable/profitable things. Maybe a tamagotchi game without death?

      extracat , 28 January 2018 20:11

      Yeah, Axiom Zen really did an amazing job going from idea to KITTIES! in just a couple of months, and then managing to handle the world's largest explosion of unexpected fleeting popularity without losing their heads. I'm super excited about the new features that are coming, and I feel like we're getting a great stream of new players every day. Sure we're not where the game was at its peak, but most of those were just trying to make a quick buck anyway and frankly the game doesn't need them. So kudos to the devs! And to everyone who has stuck around and enjoyed the game for what it's supposed to be.

      Use the filters in the marketplace to find a fair price for the kitty you want to buyer or sell. I screwed myself a few times when I first started buying crap cats for too much money

      koolkidkorey , 28 January 2018 21:03

      It's a great question and everyone new should be asking this. You can check the gas price trends here https://ethgasstation.info/

      So currently (as of this writing) 4Gwei will confirm in < 1m and 1Gwei in < 5 minutes. I would use a value in this range depending on case

      You can also look at Pending Transactions at https://etherscan.io/txsPending. To further finetune this number

      tldrtldrtldr , 28 January 2018 12:37

      Check out: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1ShiBKSglFAB2vJe4Uow3iF09FBVq6ZAaOzTCIECf4iA/htmlview

      The light blue gene pairs can mutate into the darker blue genes (Tier 2). Then darkest blue genes (Tier 3, not unlocked yet).

      Generally T2 genes and gene combos are rarer than T1 genes.

      For example “gen:0 jaguar” is rare due to how dev releases them (only 99 of them).

      So low generation Henna is rare (requires a mutation of Jaguar + Amur) . And therefore low generation Hotrod is even rarer (requires a mutation of Henna + Tigerpunk).

      Then you also have fancy cats, which require a combo of 2-4 specific genes to make. https://cryptokittydex.com/fancies

      Happy breeding :)

      noob-breeder , 29 January 2018 04:59

      I only breed traits required for fancy, but definitely check the current market price before you start.

      Sometimes a high gen fancy could cost less than 2 kitties + the 0.008 eth breeding cost + fees. (Eg the cheapest santaclaws is below 0.02)

      My personal aim is to breed a pure-bred pair for each fancy types, so that I have a 100% chance to produce the next one (albeit weekly).

      Eg, see the children of this cat: https://www.cryptokitties.co/kitty/434698

      There is a flat fee for any breeding action done by you (read: any action that leads to one of your cats getting a baby). This fee is currently 0.008 ether. This gets included when you breed two of your own cats together or when you use someone's sire.

    jodiferous11 , 26 January 2018 20:39

      Some cattributes contain errors when they are discovered. The developers want to fix these errors, but they don't want to change the appearance of the cats that already have the error. So the misprints stay as they are, but all future cats with the changed cattribute will look different.

      but the cheapest is around .7 ..

      CryptoKittehs , 26 January 2018 23:49

      You're assuming the person you used as an example got screwed over.

      Maybe they considered it money well spent on the cutest picture of a kitty they've ever seen?

      Or bought eth when it was 10c a coin?

      Who knows everyone's motivations for playing this game?

      And that gen:0 at 0.0688 is catatonic. Is it good advice to buy that?

      pnrrr , 27 January 2018 03:39

      I feel like I know a lot about CryptoKitties, and I nearly bought the cat in your example (Nut) because I thought she was beautiful and I personally value her traits. After she was sold, I was pretty bummed I didn't buy her first. We all value things differently. It's not always about generation.

      I see what you're saying, though, and I think it's important to help new players avoid costly mistakes. I appreciate your sentiment even though I strongly disagree with the particular example you chose.

      jodiferous11 , 27 January 2018 04:48

      We try to sell the cats at the best price possible. If any player would like to sell a very common cat at a high price, is totally Ok. That's the game main idea!!

  470. Just a quick reminder:

    Bestcryptocattrader , 26 January 2018 06:54

      When gas is at 1 gwei or lower then this fee is basically negligible (to me, anyway, your definition may vary). It's really only at high gas prices that this becomes a problem.

      AtAlanfalcon , 27 January 2018 03:31

      To the miners of your transaction?

  471. I have 2 cryptokitties, I want to sell them and be done. I haven't had success siring them. How do I appraise?

    716green , 26 January 2018 05:04

      Yeah honestly they are not worth anything right now. But they are older cats, which may be a bit more valuable after the China release. Assuming you don't need like $5 right now, I'd just hodl.

      jezztharipper , 26 January 2018 10:12

      I don´t think you´ll ever get your 300$ for these kitties. Right now they are worth 4-6$ as someone already said. I´d definitely hold these kitties. Once there are 10.000.000 kitties, those with a low ID may rise in value and you´ll get more for it, but right now you´d just throw away your money, so, I strongly recommend holding (or breeding).

      artiscience , 26 January 2018 11:35

      I think you'd be lucky to get $5 for both

      OSU_OSU , 26 January 2018 05:14

      there are nice kitties but the are not worth more then a few dollars it,s better to keep them prices might go up in a few months.The best investment are the gen 0 and low number kitties up to 10000 if crypto kitties become a popular game around the world people will want to collect them has a investment

      franckgant , 26 January 2018 17:14

      Search this subreddit for portfolio estimator. Last I checked they were able to search the market for kitties with the rare traits and give estimations on prices based on that. I’m not certain how accurate it is, but it could help give a range.

      Other than that the only way I know to check is to search the market filtering on the attributes and then sorting by cheapest.

      groovesquirrel , 26 January 2018 10:55

  472. how many Gen 0 crypto kitties will there be total, and how many are left?

    galileorussell , 26 January 2018 07:49

      Yeah...sounds like a rather crazy case. gen0 might be worth 1000$. I mean, it also depends on the kitten.

      I can already tell you what happens in November: everyone will try to get the last gen0s and they will sale for 5000$+ but I don´t believe this will hold for the "regular" gen0

      Also, you should take into account the difference between gen0s and gen0 virgins - there will be less virgins than 50K. Collectors will rather go for virgins, breeders won´t care that much.

      artiscience , 26 January 2018 11:40

      January Gen:Os seems to have more genes than December Gen:Os, so a Gen:O of Nov 2018 is gonna hurt!! --> those guys will have a very rich genetic pool

  473. KittyCalc.co Breeding Calculator Update

    poopiecryptocats , 26 January 2018 04:16

      Oi, here are some things we've changed with KittyCalc.co

      • Poops have been replaced with hearts by popular demand - people were confused with poops (does 5 poops mean it is really poop or good?)
      • Updated design on trait cards
      • Added sexier charts
      • Added super poop 5/5 ratings, woops I mean super hearts

      To come

      • Single kitty analysis
      • Pinned traits

      poopiecryptocats , 26 January 2018 04:19

      poopiecryptocats , 26 January 2018 04:13

      Don´t trick yourself into believing you´ll make any money on the China release. This won´t happen. The only reason some people believe this, is because they lost money and now desperately look for covering their loss.

      The "release in China" is basicallly a meme in cryptocurrencies. Once a page goes chinese bagholders speculate that their worthless stuff turns into gold. I don´t remember one case where that actually took place.

      So whoever looks forward to get out and make some money: dream on.

    Zyj , 25 January 2018 14:24

      A stuck transaction with a very low gas price will block further transactions until it is processed.

      Yeah I just worked this out today. I put a sale up with a very low fee than tried to buy a kitty with a high fee but both transactions got stuck. I resubmitted the fisrt transaction with a higher fee and then both confirmed.

      playfulexistence , 25 January 2018 17:42

      jasquekun , 25 January 2018 22:43

      I didn't realize this, and I put my kitties up to breed accidentally, and now I only have $1 left so I can't even do anything with them if I cancel these dumb transactions. I'm so sad I screwed up understanding the fees... :'( See my stupidity here: 0xdddeafbe57081a750eb6eee4cbca0eb9a8dd3a6c

      goldenflames15 , 26 January 2018 02:03

      okpony , 26 January 2018 03:50

  477. Demand and supply?

    dcoupage , 25 January 2018 10:26

      There will only ever be 50,000 Gen 0's released. They stop releasing them in November this year (1 year after launch). At this time Gen 0's will then start to become more valuable, and as breeding times slow down the other low gens will also become harder to come by, hence driving prices up. I expect that it will be playing the long game until then, but ultimately it should be worthwhile

      RuggedTin , 25 January 2018 13:11

      there is too much supply and not enough demand right now but maybe with china korea and japan Price might go up but it,s going to take a few months and much more players

      philipsburg , 25 January 2018 18:46

      We're all whining about it now. This time next year we'll be whining about how they need to release some new gen0 kitties because all the bastards who bought the gen0's are hoarding them and charging too much for the gen1's.

      dont_hate_scienceguy , 26 January 2018 08:47

      I got into the game after the initial boom, since the currency took a while to be available in Coinbase, and by the time I was able to get any, it almost seems like the game is dead anyway. The fees are so high to do anything you’d have to be rich... I have two kitties up for breeding and literally used up the rest of my ether, just to find out nobody is really doing that anymore. It’s really frustrating. I couldn’t even afford one of the gen 0s in the first place, but the volume of kitties vs players is definitely off, since the popularity slowed down. :( I cri

      goldenflames15 , 25 January 2018 10:46

    leema_ , 25 January 2018 12:19

      It seems that the site became very slow to show updates to the blockstream state since about yesterday.

      The ETH network is running fine, so this is a problem with the Cryptokitty server, not the ETH network. If your transaction confirmed then I think it should be fine.

      VendorBuyBankGuards , 26 January 2018 02:23

  481. Do a lot of people still play this game?

    Mongooseroo , 24 January 2018 15:07

      If you are new to cryptocurrencies (and surrounding projects) you should take into account attention cycles. From the mere consecutive number of kitties you can see that people "play" the game. You can see that even more from trades (if you have a look at the contracts) You can also see that breeding has become less popular - in particular in comparison to the hype in early December.

      I fully expect the game to have a "come back" once new features are introduced. I personally have rather a look at development than at present performance, since these are the early days.

      I don´t see why CK would "die away". As I said, attention cycles certainly exist, but that does not say anything about CK in 3 months, 6 months, or 2 years. You don´t "need" a lot of players to sustain the game. Even if the value of gen0 would drop to 5$ - it wouldn´t really concern potential development.

      What you probably won´t see again to that extent is the hype, even though this as well depends on development.

      artiscience , 24 January 2018 16:42

      The 'game' is just at the initial phase. We are waiting for the China and Korea markets. Each CK has the potential to be very expensive.

      kryptofan , 24 January 2018 17:49

      Yeah it got boring fast, and they depreciate in value as the value of etherium rises. So it's not so much as an investment as it is a pain in the ass to try and sell even rare cats at the bare minimum. Unless you get in on gen 0 there's not much you can do as far as increasing your investment. The cats value and quality depreciates everytime you breed them too, so it's definitely set in the favor of the creators.

      tezzmosis , 24 January 2018 19:07

      I guess you don't do things like paintball, snowboard/skiing, other activities like that. Where all you do is spend money on gear, none reusable paint balls, and if you live near big montains like $100+ for lift tickets. I guess people should only spend their money on fun if they think they will get it back. That's why no one snowboards or does paintball

      weareallfungi , 25 January 2018 08:14

    dcoupage , 24 January 2018 18:02

      Very rare and beautiful color contrast. A combo of 3!!. This cat has other characteristics very important as well. Great cat

      kryptofan , 24 January 2018 19:52

      I don't want to deter anyone from buying overpriced kitties, but there are lots of "rare" combinations, and it doesn't mean they are difficult to create. Take these two kitties (below), breed them a few times, and you'll have a Gen5 bloodred alien royalblue, for much less Ether.

      https://www.cryptokitties.co/kitty/393565 https://www.cryptokitties.co/kitty/473476

      I have a royalblue manx and I have a henna. There are no royalblue manx henna's in the game. I could make one, but that doesn't make it valuable...

    FapIsDead , 24 January 2018 06:43

      From my understanding the only thing on the blockchain are the kitty's genes so the image that you see is what the website interprets those genes to look like. In theory, one could build another interpreter and render a different kitty image from the same genes.

      Stiff3yed , 24 January 2018 08:07

      What does multisig have to do with this?

      mpbh , 22 January 2018 21:14

      Wouldn’t that technically go against the point of the blockchain and crypto in general? The whole point is that they each have their own makeup. If you only had some of the genes, then someone else could have the same combination as you, and that defeats the purpose, doesn’t it? Maybe I’m misunderstanding, please explain

      goldenflames15 , 22 January 2018 23:27

      You can't make any tokens truly divisible - they're always an integer - optionally represented with some decimal points that make them "divisible" to a certain extend. So I mean, you could consider 10 NFT's to be a whole, but the ERC-721 contract says each of them can be traded, and has it's own ownership logic.

      Hatchan3 , 22 January 2018 17:28

      You can do this easily right now. Just gift your cats to 0x0.

      MyTribeCalledQuest , 22 January 2018 20:15

      There is no reason why common cats should cost anything now

      Rare cats are still expensive, even though there is little demand for them

      Stop breeding GEN3+ without a plan and you won’t be suffering so much

      Any transformation solution will just hurt rare kitties, dropping their price

      The problem is there is no use for GEN3+ kitties at the moment, it might change with new applications utilizing kitties, those applications could also do some “sink” buying cheapest kitties for their purposes (like opskins did)

      NARW_Bombard , 22 January 2018 17:04

      Might be a good idea to receive some 'Breeding Fee Tokens' in exchange for your useless kitties. Only to spend within the game.

  504. CryptoKitties Tutorial made for friends and family

    Phillips_inc , 22 January 2018 12:09

      Hey all I started playing CryptoKitties about a month ago and absolutely love the game. I started sharing some of my results on Facebook and my friends and family took notice. They started asking a bazillion questions so I made this video to help them get started. Check it out.

  505. [dev] How do developers make money from CryptoKitties?

    Biqt , 22 January 2018 12:58

      Forgot to mention: despite of my confusion with game mechanics, source of CryptoKittes is the most well-documented code I've ever met, absolute respect to developers.

      Biqt , 22 January 2018 13:08

      Here's a copypaste from a comment I wrote about the money flow:

      • The gen 0 kitties are created by a smart contract owned by the creators of the game. The profile that holds these kitties is called "Kitty Clock". Any Ether used to purchase kitties from this clock goes to the developers.
      • There is also a similar account called "CK COO" which owned the first 100 cats, called the Founder cats. Any purchases from this account also went to the developers.
      • There is a 3.75% commission on every transaction that goes through the CryptoKitty smart contract. This commission also goes to the developers.
      • The flat breeding fee (currently 0.008 ether) goes towards the people who call the giveBirth function when a matron is ready to give birth. This system was created so people can get rewarded for helping the blockchain and CryptoKitties.
      • Transaction fees used to process your transactions go to the Ethereum miners.

      Gen 0 auctions are created by the COO address, which calls the function createGen0Auction from the CK core contract. The COO address is the only address that can create these auctions, as onlyCOO is a required parameter in the createGen0Auction function.

      withdrawBalance can be called by the CFO address like you said. This seems to be done manually.

      Hopefully that answers your questions!

  507. Transaction fees

    LovelyDutchPanda , 22 January 2018 15:38

      I recommend checking https://ethgasstation.info/ for acceptable gas prices. Don't touch the gas limit MetaMask suggests, decreasing the limit will make your transactions fail.

      DERPYBASTARD , 22 January 2018 16:07

      whatever transaction you try to do in ethereum or any other cryptocurrency has a fee. So high prices of a coin are going for sure increase the cost of small transactions. This is the 'problem' of a blockchain

  508. Hi All,

    manlikehayden , 22 January 2018 09:00

      vanitasCG , 22 January 2018 09:15

      I’d also like to hear some stories, just looking at the numbers isn’t as helpful as hearing people’s real experiences

      goldenflames15 , 22 January 2018 11:24

      Ok, I will tell a very short story. Someone who won third place in "like my kitty" contest, just sold his free kitty #511 for 9.5 eth yesterday
      Contest link: https://www.reddit.com/r/CryptoKitties/comments/7miwni/revised_winners_of_the_snowball_galore_winters/
      Transaction link: https://etherscan.io/tx/0x816801a22403e9453e3dbb76107d97e6b11df338b37b88004e50f9afb909303d

      vanitasCG , 22 January 2018 12:37

      Yesterday I tried this 'tactic': I bought 1 cat with a relative rare gene (hintomint), and a second one with another relative rare gene (elk). I would like to breed a cat with 2 rare traits (elk + hintomint) because this kind of cat is more expensive than the parents. So when I breed the cats I didn't get the double rare, instead I got a double common cat, no hintomint, neither elk !! .... and I didn't try again (both parents are catatonic).

      Maybe is a good idea, but needs some luck as well, next week maybe I'll try again

      kryptofan , 22 January 2018 23:07

      I used to profit on Phuzziqaat, but now the price of those is too low to carry the loss on 'failed' kitties.

      veselyr , 22 January 2018 23:38

  509. Anyone can tell me, if my kitties are worth anything? Or how much it can be worth?

    hencock89 , 22 January 2018 13:42

      Use https://catfol.io ! Will give you a breakdown of your whole portolio.

      Matthew_Hindley , 22 January 2018 14:18

      Does that cost money? It was in a different language on my phone and said I had to process something before getting it. I didn’t want it to take ether out of my wallet.

      DeadDisco931 , 22 January 2018 14:48


      Matthew_Hindley , 22 January 2018 23:41

      Or use the sales history on Kitty Explorer to find similar cats and their actual recent sales

  510. what

    Teenwilf6762 , 22 January 2018 08:54

      Cat skins aren't generally used in the farming of suede, it's usually lamb or goat. But who am I to judge.

      pnrrr , 22 January 2018 16:19

  511. What this game need is a "sort by generations" option. I would save so much time.

    loolo78 , 21 January 2018 17:39

      In the search box, type "gen:", then type the gen you want to look for. For multiple gens, use commas

      izzulaizad95 , 21 January 2018 17:50

      theres a box to the left you can select which generations to look at. then just start low and go up

      Slabmason710 , 22 January 2018 09:14

      Try "Filter Kitties," just below "Sort by." :)

  512. Is CryptoKitties Worth My Time?

    defaultgnik , 21 January 2018 21:09

      No. Your better off lighting your money on fire. Just kidding really. I don't know. But, I seriously doubt it. When I first heard of it, I got into it after it had been going for a week or two. I bought two, and bred one, and offered one up to sire. Did the same for my girlfriend. Wasted about $100. No idea, if they're worth anything, and I'm almost sure they aren't worth what I put in. The cost of breeding them seems to be the major pitfall in the "game".

      kingp43x , 21 January 2018 21:47

      If you are looking to get into this just to make some quick money, I'd say no, but if you are looking into having fun with the game and slowly grinding your money back up, then its worth it. The end game for CK imo are the fancy cats, so don't get caught up on specific traits.

      BeaverCams , 21 January 2018 21:51

      If you are ok with spending your time on research you will find numerous ways to make money on CryptoKitties, but there is no easy way to get rich, otherwise every player would already have an island

      If you are not interested enough in the idea of the project, probably it would be easier for you just to buy altcoins

      NARW_Bombard , 21 January 2018 22:00

      With enough research and experience in the game you could break even in a week or less. It wouldn't be cheap to start, and the learning curve is pretty steep. With that being said, it's possible. Is it worth your time? Idk

      purpleQuarkle , 21 January 2018 23:18

      It's a game for rich people

  514. Why so many copy kitties?

    jourje45 , 21 January 2018 08:07

      Non are as popular in terms of transaction volume. But cryptocelebrities just launched the beta yesterday, so lets wait and see.

      muelia345 , 21 January 2018 08:09

      I know right...at least in the case of ethercraft it's not the same code

      racketship , 22 January 2018 06:02

      There’s also CryptoPuppies (Not Tron Dogs) coming out sometime next month-ish

      Tinainpdx , 26 January 2018 22:44

      Because not everyone is a fan of cats and they might be more interested in other things than cats. People will care more about their favourite celebs, actors/actress or their favourite music bands, singers etc. If people don't like cats, they have nothing to do with cats and it's just a smash-up game for them. In addition, other crypto games is adding more benefits to offer and has the more competitive advantage than cryptokitties, for example cryptocelebrities can make a contribution to charity or get the celebs to endorse the cards publicly.

      JakeBresnan , 08 February 2018 22:33

      After the cryptokitty hype many people quickly "developed" a new crypro game hoping to profit from the hype. Most of those games have very bad game designs, some are even 100% scams with no real game at all (e.g. ethertanks, etheracer).

      There are also promising games in development thought: CryptoPets (collecting different kinds of pets and using them in various minigames), Nova Blitz (Blockchain CCG) and Parsec Frontiers (Blockchain MMO) are worth a look in my opinion.

  516. Fun with CryptoKitties

    kittyfanclub , 20 January 2018 18:08

      I think an off-chain place to do things with kitties would be a great hit! turn then into Avatars and creat things to do with them and interact with others, maybe even earn a new Kitty coin type thing. A MMO type game could really fly. I haven't coded since the Dos days so I'm out of the programing picture. Cheers

      codypanama , 20 January 2018 19:10

      This is so cool! I'm so excited you're doing this. Can't wait to see where it goes! P.S. Love the sound effects, lol.

      jodiferous11 , 20 January 2018 19:54

      nice website great work kitty family tree is a great tool people collecting rare traits especially the first generations that are more valuable then the newer ones.Kitties battles is also cool

      philipsburg , 20 January 2018 20:26

      Just tried it out on Brave browser and it works really well. Thank you, the family tree thing is super neat!

      Throwawaycoinguy , 21 January 2018 07:14

      I've been waiting for cat fights to come along. I don't have the skills to do it. I have the same feelings that we need to do more with these cute kittites. a tomagachi would be cool. load my cat in, and feed it play with it and what not. cat fights for sure. using genotypes through an algorithm to determine some basic attacks and phenotypes for secret attack. fight for free but a side smart contract for betting would be sweet in the end even stake your cat against opponents. winner takes the cat. There are so many possibilities with this well crafted token. I'm just waiting on the devs like you. HURRAY!!!!! keep up the good work!

      I'm ready to investigate these transactions and show who are the seller.

      RollDiceClub , 20 January 2018 23:02

      RollDiceClub , 21 January 2018 11:19

      A lot of the sales like this and early sales are fake. I just wanted to let you know. If you look at a lot of the early cats that sold for 100+ ETH, the person who bought them bought one cat and never played the game. It just sits there. I am pretty sure it was just the same few people buying them on the CK team to get people into thinking they are worth that much for real.

      In reality, it is a cat picture.

      TruthForce , 20 January 2018 02:39

      did someone just send their coin to another account and add a kitty to it? about 1 Kitty per hour is being transfered today, and clock kitties GEN 0 new are in the .1 ETH range. :-) Cheers

      codypanama , 20 January 2018 03:23

  522. Looking for CryptoKotya

    WIMelissa , 20 January 2018 02:57

      One thing you have to learn about crypto when you make a mistake that usually is the end of it. All transactions in crypto are final. You may be lucky and get them to respond but at this point you may have to count your losses :/


      ChuckFresco , 20 January 2018 06:59

      Sorry for your losses, I hope tomorrow will be a better day for you! Maybe KryptoKotya had an even worse day today and this chance encounter made it better. So seeing it as “paying forward” might help?

      sonic336 , 20 January 2018 08:54

      I am very sorry this happened to you and sorry for your loss. It is easy to accidentally list something too low and I hope the player will see this and work something out with you.

      DivineFlora , 20 January 2018 04:45

      You can send him some wei and attach your text as "data" (but first you should convert your message from ASCII to Hex via service like: https://www.rapidtables.com/convert/number/ascii-to-hex.html)

      I guess I should make a simple service allowing CryptoKitties users to communicate.

      vicnaum , 20 January 2018 15:37

      nicokalo , 19 January 2018 12:49

      sneakpeekbot , 22 January 2018 07:53

      they need to do some add ons to it to spike it up again & advertise to get people that have no clue its even out their aware of it.

      bitcoincat2017 , 19 January 2018 17:47

      The CK 'launch hype' is over but in my opinion, no one can say where CK will be a year from now. I woke up to kitty sales and sires so obviously it isn't dead.

      I'm strict about staying at break-even in terms of spending/earning while I acquire a collection I want for when gen0 production stops. I'm of the mind it will be a whole new kind of game then and in that case, I'll be in a good place. Maybe smart, maybe not, either way I've had fun.

      I like my kitties. I like CK. I'm in it for the long-term, so long as it remains decentralized.

      DivineFlora , 19 January 2018 22:05

  526. Where exactly is my kitty on the blockchain?

    tompurl , 19 January 2018 17:31

      First things first, if you're going to use a separate (hot or cold) wallet to hold tokens, make sure you send a small amount of ether to the same address. If you ever want to move those tokens, you'll need to pay for gas.

      CryptoKitties isn't an ERC20 token because every CK is unique (they're non-fungible). You wouldn't pay for something with 10 random CK anymore than you'd pay for something with 10 random baseball cards in real life, since each one has unique properties that affect its value. The standard it uses (ERC721) tries to maintain backward compatibility with ERC20 tokens, though, so you should be able to add the token contract to any wallet that supports ERC20, you'll need to set decimals to 0 if you wallet asks and the "amount" or "value" you transfer will always be the exact ID of the token (kitty) you want to trransfer.

      Not familiar with TrustWallet, but if it has a way to add custom tokens try this:

      address: 0x06012c8cf97BEaD5deAe237070F9587f8E7A266d name: CryptoKitties symbol: CK decimals: 0 

      stevenh512 , 19 January 2018 18:28

      All kitties are generated and stored in CryptoKitties SmartContract developed by CK team. You can read the values here:


      But there are so many kitties, that getting all cats of an address just gets a timeOut in Etherscan interface (and in MetaMask/Infura too) - to not overload their servers.

      You can run your own Parity/Geth node, and then the function tokensOfOwner() will work.

      You're right about 256-bit key - that's needed to transfer or do any actions with your kitties - because the contract knows that these kitties are associated (set as "owned") with your address, and only your key will "fit" to sign any action with them.

      On Catfol.io I do not use my own node to retrieve kitties. Because some of then can be "owned" by Auction contract - you transfer the ownership of your kitties to that contract when you put them on sale, same with breed. It acts like a middle-men or an escrow and also saves you as an original owner - so you can still cancel the sale and retrieve them back, but it also can transfer the ownership to another person if a condition is met (a buy is performed). So I've decided to not over-complicate things checking several contracts - and to use CK API, the same api that retrieves your kitties on CryptoKitties website. As far as I know (and as far as I would do, if I were doing the site as big as CK) - it checks the blockchain regularly and caches the kitties data into a regular DB - that's why it works fast, but often doesn't display an immediate state of your kitties.

      So, your kitties are stored on one contract, and on websites you usually see a cached version of them. And, btw, CK contract is controlled by CK team - and can be upgraded, paused, etc. Pretty long way to the real decentralization still :-) But that's for the sake of usability and scaling.

      Something like that. Please ask if you still have questions.

      vicnaum , 20 January 2018 00:11

      Same question. I would like to know how to protect my expensive CKs. I don't trust in Metamask, the tool easily could be hacked.

      How we can back-up our CKs?

      How to store the CKs in a paper wallet???

      kryptofan , 19 January 2018 18:07

      Enlighten me on how everyone can participate. Unless there's some free utility given to new players to start somewhere, I don't see how "everyone" can play. Keep in mind, some people can't spend any money, so in the end it's a pay2play "game".

      Also a whale2profit game too.

    DERPYBASTARD , 18 January 2018 21:37

      high breeding fee killed this game. period.

      dimitar99 , 19 January 2018 00:06

      Okay, feedback form sent!

      Here are my extra two cents that I couldn't put in the feedback form:

      I love that cat ownership is on the blockchain. I love that my kitties really, truly belong to me. Other than that, I don't get why everything else has to be done on the blockchain, like listing a cat, canceling an auction, even breeding.

      When I first heard of CK, I basically wanted to buy a few cats for real money and then have fun breeding them into different combos. If I got a few lucky kittens out of it that I could sell for money, great. But I didn't think breeding would be so expensive and make you feel like you could only do it when you had really good odds of producing a "valuable" kitten. I just wanted to make cute kittens for fun! Now I'm stuck watching gas prices all the time and trying to justify breeding my two favorite cats even though I know their offspring won't be "valuable" enough to sell and cover the cost.

      I'm a non-gamer, non-crypto person who had never heard of ETH and never used Reddit or Discord. But I fell in love with CryptoKitties instantly when I heard about them and I slogged through all the frustrations to get to the point where I am. I'm still not making money from my kitties, but I love them and I created cryptokitties411.com to try to help the other non-crypto people who want to play.

      I really believe in CK and think it has many brilliant elements that could appeal to a huge audience. But the transaction costs and confusion are a huge barrier to people in my boat. I want my kitties to remain securely MINE but other than that, I don't really care about decentralization (whatever that is).

      Your GEN 0 Kitty every 15 minute has ruined the marketplace. Go have a look at the marketplace front page under GEN 0 and Cheapest. It's all your generated GEN 0's. You are literally killing this game and the market by not deciding to adjust the timeframe for GEN 0 production as well as moving the date to sooner than December as well as reducing the amount you will be producing. By December there will no longer be a Cryptokitties so please.,, pivot or this game will die.

      RenaldoGouws , 19 January 2018 02:50

      what about a AR game like pokemon go but with crypto kitties and VR worlds with crypto kitties.crypto kitties has to merge with others games platform to bring new players to the game

      philipsburg , 20 January 2018 20:34

      I really do like the mysterious aspect of traits, and Fancy's, yet to come. Some approvement can be made in searching/segregation your own kitties, for instance by gen or trait combination. Another thing could be releasing new gen:0 kitties more in different traits instead of in a bulk of the latest traits.

      Keep up, cheers!

      use https://ethgasstation.info/ to monitor the gas price and make your transactions when its in the 1-4 range instead of 20-40

      Slabmason710 , 19 January 2018 12:06

      The number 1 purpose of the game is NOT to make money. I guess people will never stop thinking this, that alone will ruin the game. Yes some people try to make money, and 95% of them do not. Some just have fun playing.

      Have you ever played say Magic the Gathering (or similar card games), did you pay money to buy cards in hopes of getting your money back or did you buy cards in hopes of having fun?

      weareallfungi , 20 January 2018 03:17

  532. Is Siring worth it?

    stuckonaneyeland , 19 January 2018 07:22

      It costs 0.008 to breed no matter how you do it. If you use the siring auctions, you also pay the siring fee to the owner of the sire. CK gets 3.75% of the siring fee and 0% of the birthing fee, that fee goes to the miners in a roundabout way to run the gene mixing function and create/deliver your new cat for you.

    DeadDisco931 , 19 January 2018 02:15

      As far as I know there is no way to send more than one kitty via CryptoKittyCore, and also you would probably pay the same since the transaction cost depends on the number of operations inside the transaction, I’m not an expert though

      Check gas price on https://ethgasstation.info/ to not pay too much, usually even SafeLow let you complete the transaction with some delays, just keep in mind those prices are just estimations

      Also, usually transaction exact cost is less than what you see in Metamask before submitting the transaction, try to send one kitty and check the price after the transaction is complete

    RollDiceClub , 17 January 2018 12:51

      Awesome! I’ve been waiting for an updated version of this, thanks for making it!

      Now is where I beg for it to look a little something like this: https://www.reddit.com/r/CryptoKitties/comments/7j0y0f/my_dream_feature_kraftakitty/

      Then the future step is a smart contract that allows someone to offer up a bounty for a specific kitty, and for breeders to be able to go after large enough and reasonable enough bounties: send a kitty that matches the bounty to the requester and automatically receive the bounty less a small matchmaker fee. “WTB Gen 3 or lower Onyx Slyboots, offering 0.1 ETH”

      Additional feature requests: Slyboots and chronic eyelids should match the body color (easier said than done, I'm sure). Also would be nice to have shadows and highlights on the kitty body like they are on the tail (and on real CK kitties). And "Any" is meaningful for searching the marketplace, but not meaningful for generating a kitty image (it always chooses the same option) - I would love to have some kind of reroll option that randomizes all the "any" traits.

  547. Mutation Tool

    jodiferous11 , 17 January 2018 06:31

      Love this!

      For the uninitiated, mutations tend to be much rarer traits (especially at lower generations) and thus more valuable in the scheme of things. Every gene has a "mutation pair" gene that, when bred together, gives a small chance (usually 14%) of generating a brand new trait not necessarily seen in either parent. This is separate from the so-called "recessive" genes that have a chance to gene swap into the dominant position.

      Anyway, this tool is great because it tells you at a glance which kinds of kitties you should breed with to have that 14% chance of getting which brand new traits in their offspring!

      Overwatch_Falcon , 17 January 2018 07:18

      Love it!

      A small thing I noticed, however: in the "Mutation Match-Up 3" sheet, totesbasic + totesbasic => totesbasic. Is that a mistake or... ? :)

  551. How do some traits stay so rare?

    TyPark , 16 January 2018 19:58

      Royalblue and Wingtips are both tier 3 mutations.

      They require mutations of mutated traits so getting them at early generations is super difficult.

      Wingtips, Mainecoon, Royalblue should stay relatively rare long term.

      KittyHats-Official , 16 January 2018 20:26

      Both the comments so far are spot-on. For more details, you can check out this Trait Chart.

      In the Trait Chart, the dark-blue traits are going to maintain their rarity longer than others, particularly in low generations.

      You can also read about mutations here: https://cryptokitties411.com/2018/01/09/mutations/

  552. Did I sell my Kittie for 0?

    Mighty_K , 16 January 2018 20:36

      The zero is how much ETH you sent to the contract (outside the tx fee) to list the kitty. Don’t worry that number is supposed to be zero. If you look below it says (in hex) which kitty you put up for sale, what the starting and ending price are, and how long it will take to go from the former to the latter. If this doesn’t make sense then you should probably avoid looking at etherscan until you’ve done more reading on how this all works since it’ll only confuse you.

      Your kitty sold for 0.005 Ether 2 weeks ago which shows up under the “internal transactions” tab in your etherscan wallet page.

      niels056 , 17 January 2018 01:08

      There are many traits that are only possible at generation 1 and higher. There are traits that require generation 2 and higher. One day there will be traits that are only possible with a very low percentage chance at generation 3. Getting certain combos of traits is only practical at higher generations. That doesn't mean you should run down to get 14 without intentionality if you're trying to be frugal about it though. But playing with high gen kitties is a great way to get crazy combos and keep your costs low if you're not really trying to sell your kitties.

      Overwatch_Falcon , 17 January 2018 04:44

      Try looking for cheap gen 0 and gen 1s now because they have the best possible chance to get new gene combos. Then just start breeding and siring

      Just in case you don't know, you can sort through your own kitties by manipulating the URL: https://www.cryptokitties.co/my-kitties/all?search=cloudwhite%20spock

      It's the same search string as you'd find in the marketplace search, so if you want you can search the marketplace then copy/paste the search string like above.

      Fdshaso , 16 January 2018 11:56

  562. What am I doing wrong?

    Toobis , 16 January 2018 01:49

      One problem with buying cheap kitties is that someone else probably also wants to buy that kitty, and if their transaction processes before yours then yours will of course fail. And since it cost a miner some gas to get to that point, you still have to pay the transaction fee to cover that gas. There are ways to get around this somewhat: don't trust the website (you can use the smart contract to check to ensure that the kitty is really still for sale if you know what you're doing,) and then make sure you submit your transaction with high enough gas cost that it goes through quickly so you don't end up getting sniped anyway. Also you can browse slightly more expensive kitties that are less likely to be purchased out from under you, though of course you're not getting the best possible deal this way. Also make sure you're only submitting one transaction at a time: multiple transactions wait in line and only process after the one before them, so it's more likely that a kitty will be sold while your transaction is waiting if you queue them up.

      A major cause of failed transactions is running out of gas: 25000 gas limit is probably too low. You can set it much higher safely: once the transaction is successful you'll find that you were only charged for the actual gas that was used and the rest will once again be in your available balance. But really you shouldn't have to change the gas limit ever, just trust what metamask puts in as the default. The only number you should be changing is the gas price, and then use something in the safe range from ethgasstation like you said.

      Note that it's possible to get lucky and win a free kitty from a giveaway. I love Poopie.cat's daily giveaways: http://poopie.cat/ - so that's one way you can get a cute kitty for your profile to get started and not have to worry about all of the above. But you're going to want to get more kitties and breed them eventually, so you will have to learn at some point (hopefully without throwing away so much ETH in the process next time!)

      If you share your profile then we can probably get more information about what exactly has happened to you. Share your public key from metamask or from the CK profile page: this is public information meant to be shared. Never share your private key or metamask keywords.

      Overwatch_Falcon , 16 January 2018 02:11

      Every single problem you have is because you are trying to do the bare minimum. Imagine trying to run a business buying one role of stickytape at a time, one desk at a time.. having only just enough to meet then next order and nothing else. You would fail miserably.

      If you had just been more patient and got the eth properly, not tried to go for the lowest priced cats etc you would have not wasted the 80$..

      iknoweverythingok , 16 January 2018 02:37

      I picked up a few kitty from OpSkins and avoid all the extra trans action fees all together. It's way easier to buy and sell on OpSkins then the website.

      Toobis , 16 January 2018 02:44

  563. New Selling Price?

    reduellc , 16 January 2018 05:44

      Cost to sell depends on what the current Ethereum Gas Price is. Yesterday it jumped from 5 to 58 in a few minutes.

      At 5, I sold a cat for around $1.22.

      Watch https://ethgasstation.info/index.php and do all your transactions when gas is low.

      alayahlan , 16 January 2018 05:59

      Two weeks ago the price of ethereum was $755 US, now it's ~1200. If you're going to calculate the costs of transactions in USD, they'll go up whenever ETH does.

      That said, if you wait for a cheaper gas price, selling will cost less.

      Metamask could be attaked by hackers

      kryptofan , 15 January 2018 22:50

      Just gift it to a hardware wallet address. But then you'll probably need to know how to interact directly with the CK core contract to breed ,sell, or at least transfer it back to meta mask later.

    waterzebr , 15 January 2018 19:22

      I personally don't categorize any of those traits as rare. I would look around the market a bit before making your final choice.

      I also suggest checking out CryptoKittyDex to see the relative rarity of traits, and CryptoKitties411 for information on using the search bar and other tips.

      jodiferous11 , 15 January 2018 20:57

      Welcome! This is a lot of fun and can be rewarding, but take your time and learn a lot before dropping that kind of money. There are many sharks out there and you can never trust a kitty's name. For example, those traits haven't been rare for weeks, and that kitty hasn't been that valuable for even longer. Choose something that appeals to you visually. But that kitty is an awful deal today. You could (and should) get something like this with actually rare traits at a much more valuable and viable generation for a fraction of the price: https://www.cryptokitties.co/kitty/464179

      If you like that kitty's look in particular, there are lots of lower gen, cheaper similar options: https://www.cryptokitties.co/marketplace/sale?orderBy=current_price&orderDirection=asc&search=scarlet%20himalayan%20aquamarine%20luckystripe%20gen%3A0%2C1%2C2%2C3%2C4%2C5%2C6%2C7%2C8%2C9

      DERPYBASTARD , 15 January 2018 19:29

      It's a cute cat, but seems expensive for those traits.

      Also note, just because the website says it's for sale doesn't necessarily mean it's still for sale. Sometimes a cat gets sold and the website takes a while to update.

    vertabray , 15 January 2018 16:09

      Sell them for what you can and wait until gas price goes down to like 5 to 10.

      Nothing you can do in a market where there is 100,000 cats for sale and 700 sell every day. Too much supply = cheap worthless cats.

      TruthForce , 15 January 2018 21:04

      Chalk it up as a lesson learned. The open market is a place where people with money get educated and the people with knowledge get money.

      Check back in a year when the spigot is turned off and you may have a tangible asset that is not so plentiful. If they are "worthless" now then you have nothing to lose. IMO

  569. A technical question with regard to how CK runs

  572. Rare traits vs. Popular traits

    jodiferous11 , 15 January 2018 00:15

      This is a great idea, thanks. Of course what’s interesting about the free market is that everyone has their own value system that affects how much they’re willing and able to pay for a given set of traits at a given rarity. But realistically only competing demand will drive up prices of those traits, so having a good grasp on what is most universally valued aestetically will be useful information. Also fun to talk about.

      I appreciate everything you’ve been doing for the CK community and new users in particular!

      WeAllMagic , 15 January 2018 03:09

      This is a good point, but still doesn't fully capture the visual appeal of certain cats. Expressions result from the combination of traits. So someone might like (say) "googly" when it's with "tongue" but not when it's with "dali." I bet a detailed analysis would show that any given trait is more prized in some combinations than others, and that there are particular combinations that are relatively disliked even if the individual traits are otherwise desirable.

      Personally, I rather disliked "otaku," then after browsing more cats, I realized I like it with certain color combinations. And does anyone else dislike "henna" -- but only sometimes, depending on the colors and mouth?

      I think as the game becomes more widespread and popular, we'll start to see popularity based on all kinds of different random things. If (say) Taylor Swift were to tweet, "I just got a CryptoKitty, and luckystripe is clearly the best pattern," then luckystripe would suddenly be more valuable than rarer patterns. Or we might be surprised to see a surge in prices for a particular color combination, then find out that the game just got translated into the language of some country we never heard of, and those colors match their flag. Or something.

      So you're right that value is based on a lot more than rarity, but assuming the game continues to grow, you're barely even scratching the surface here.

      retailnoodles , 15 January 2018 21:05

      It is a Crypto Currency. It will have ups and downs. But it will pay in the future

      Sipho1 , 15 January 2018 05:31

      This game is essentially dead. The value of anything in this game is 0, if someone is willing to buy something at this point in the game they are just having fun or don't mind blowing hundreds of USD on something not worth anything.

      Stats to prove this game has died off and is 99.9% unprofitable to do anything.


      The height of the game saw 4,800 ETH per day in sales. Yesterday? Well that was 27 ETH total in sales. How many cats sold at highest point per day? almost 17,000... yesterday? 789.

      Stop playing this "game" thinking about money. What you are doing specifically is paying to have Random Numbers collide with each other on a smart contract and generate a cat picture.

      By no means is this a game. Everyone complains about microtransactions in actual games that EA puts out like Star Wars Battlefront recently, and everyone who "plays cryptokitties" is more than happy to throw money at cat pictures.

      Just think about it.

  573. Will Breeding CryptoKitties become "taxable events"?

    UberGameMasters , 15 January 2018 01:26

      Consult your tax attorney, not Reddit. And if she gives you a definitive answer, fire her and get a better one.

      WeAllMagic , 15 January 2018 03:06

      What are you talking about? "Breeding CryptoKitties" isn't taxable per se, but if you earn or lose money, it might be a taxable event. See IRS Virtual Currency Guidance and Tax Consequences of Virtual World Transactions.

      retailnoodles , 15 January 2018 20:32

      Every single thing you do in cryptokitties is a taxable event(if living in USA). Breeding/buying/selling/siring/listing for sale/paying any kind of free/giving away a cat to someone else.

      As someone who made 21+ ETH from this it is an absolute nightmare trying to figure it out. Luckily you can download all your transactions from etherscan.io if you put your metamask address in.

      TruthForce , 15 January 2018 02:41

      I think the problem is, our rhetoric.

      We need to go from micro-aggressive joviality to revolutionary non negotiability.

      Soon, with such a heavy handed change in the social vernacular "they'll" again realize it's the people that command their own destinies. And that "they" are just along for the ride.

      UberGameMasters , 15 January 2018 04:45

  574. Does anyone have any information regarding if the breeding fee will ever be reduced when the market connection is reestablished?

    acs20596 , 15 January 2018 07:13

      jodiferous11 , 15 January 2018 22:17

      IMO, the fee can be decreased only if ethereum transaction fee decreases

      The fee is paid to people who call giveBirth to actually create new kitty, if they get less than they spent they loose money and won’t do it

      Most of the users probably are not familiar with the mechanics and probably are not willing to do that so it would reduce the playability if they had to call giveBirth on their own

      The devs are also talking about fee’s influence on the market, so maybe even if you remove the fee but make users birth their kitties themselves it would also decrease the price of kitties to the transaction price - I don’t know if it would be true or even bad for the economy, but I would certainly want to have an opinion to birth my kitties and save breeding fee without competing with bots which are doing that now :)

      NARW_Bombard , 15 January 2018 09:02

      High breeding fee is not working because today every common cat is worthless only 'rare' cats have good prices.

  578. Fancy genes and weird search results cymric + tongue

    mhazoldt , 14 January 2018 04:10

      15787 and 17835 and some other early kitties are bugged and show attributes they don't actually have.

      As for fancies, yes, they have been figured out. And you're right about Tongue + Cymric = ducat. The other fancies all require three or four traits, and sometimes one of those traits is an invisible gene that you can only see a kitty has by reading the genome (which is easy enough these days.)

      If you don't want to figure out the formulas for yourself , here they are:

      ducat: tongue cymric

      santaclaws: cloudwhite beard scarlet SANT (hidden gene)

      dracula: laperm spock strawberry DRAC (hidden gene)

      mistletoe: oldlace crazy gerbil

      shipcat: orangesoda luckystripe sphynx crazy

      PhuZiqaat: alien pouty chartreux spock

      stitches: saycheese seafoam hintomint swampgreen

      Overwatch_Falcon , 14 January 2018 08:40

      Yeah ducat is the easiest fancy to make :). Tongue and Cymric need to be the dominant genes in their category for the fancy to display!

  579. New player tips? Things to look out for?

    MellowKitty10 , 14 January 2018 09:45

      My favorite users guide is cryptokitties411. Read up. There are basically two strategies. 1) Breed for cats that are rare or fancy. or 2) look for cats that improperly priced and flip them for a profit. Ok I guess three. Many players are true fans and not all about the money. They breed cats for traits they personally like and hold them.

      ChesterKedi , 14 January 2018 18:47

      poopiecryptocats , 14 January 2018 20:48

      ChuckFresco , 14 January 2018 21:05

      One thing I would love to know, is if there is a way to filter/sort kitties for sale by price, without having to include kitties looking to sire. Also, is there a way to see the Gen "0" kitties that they release every 15 minutes ONLY. I am looking for a cheap entry into the game to fiddle around, and I don't know if that's even an option because filter/sorting isn't as specific as I would like it seems.

      Roninjinn , 15 January 2018 17:02

      I had my fun with the game and don't have the time to put into breeding all the time (day job + school, you know the drill) so if you'd like to buy my 9 kitties for .18 ether I'd be happy to find them a new home! http://catfol.io/index.html?owner=0xb98298735066118727e1af41ec9d17049bcf7465

      This is such a cool site!! Thank you so much for the Breeding Calculator! I could literally play on that all day trying to find the best possible combos for my cats ;)

      I know you've probably thought of this already @jodiferous11, but do you think one of the mystery categories is whiskers (i.e. length, droop, crimp in it)? Comparing my cats I think whiskers are a slightly different attribute from the mouth, but I could be really off base. Either way, thank you for all the hard work you've put in!

      micc117 , 14 January 2018 07:22

      I paid 3 eth to buy/breed all my cryptokitties. You can have them all for 1/5 that price. Unfortunately I think the fad is all but gone and these things really aren't worth anything. I know I no longer have much interest in them. Too bad also as this had potential but creating an infinite number of digital cats with virtually the same characteristics makes them about as valuable now as the Zimbabwe dollar.

      thegolth , 14 January 2018 09:19

      I recommend to try a different browser and/or clear your cache. This sounds like a caching problem. Not related to the game indeed. However if it was a problem with the transaction itself its possibly due to network clogging and a current spam attack https://www.reddit.com/r/ethereum/comments/7q6fsb/why_is_the_network_being_clogged_by_a_single/

      artiscience , 14 January 2018 10:47

      Adding this: if you are trying a very cheap cat, it is possible that it's already sold and therefore doesn't allow you to proceed. Usually it would give you the notice "you are not allowed to buy this Kitty"

  584. Relatively new to genetic-part of the game!

    Luddeball , 13 January 2018 12:29

      At this point, just a touch over one month into game release, no one can really say what is or isn't rare yet. The kitty market moves and changes VERY quickly with a huge amount of players chasing brand new traits while quickly abandoning old ones. What sells for 1eth one day may only sell for .01 the next. Occasionally some traits that are 'old' and not selling well will start selling for higher amounts again once a new mutation or fancy emerges which requires them. All that said, I cannot tell if wolfgrey/persian will become more or less valuable in the future than it is now. I suspect there is a chance because I haven't seen any mutations or fancies that require those two traits yet.

      A few weeks ago, your kitty would have been worth more than today only because those were newer traits that everyone was eagerly breeding at the time that they were 'new'. Currently, I do not see many people chasing those traits but that doesn't mean they won't be seeking your combo again in the future.

      Also, you can always use kitty explorer to help figure out pricing. For example, Gen3 persian Wolfgreys sales are here: http://www.kittyexplorer.com/prices/?generation=3&color=&fancy=&exclusive=&cattributes=persian&cattributes=wolfgrey&order=

      All of the above is just my opinion, based on a fantactic amount of gameplay since just after launch. I hope this helps. :)

      the .008 is the breeding fee. You would pay this same .008 if you bred two kitties that you own. The .001 is on top of the standard breeding fee and is the only portion going to the owner of the sire cat.

      Very cool! I got my first two kitties from CryptoKittyShop today and I love them! Very cool stats, and glad to be a part of helping you mine. :D

      uxbecks , 14 January 2018 04:59

      We thought the community might like to see our first Transparency Report, where we list anonymised statistics about the use of our site.

      We've got a whole heap of new features coming out soon that we think will improve our site a lot, but in the meantime, we have new Kitties available from 13:00 GMT tomorrow (Saturday 13th Jan), and really appreciate the feedback from our users.

      If you've not checked out our site yet, please feel free to take a look: cryptokittyshop.com.

      below is some of the report

      This has been the first week of this site, and early impressions were great - people seemed enthused at the prospect of being able to earn CryptoKitties just by watching YouTube videos. However, there was lots of abuse of the system, and after initially turning a bit of a blind eye to it, it rapidly became clear that the site was going struggle to even make enough Monero to exchange to cover the cost of 1 gifting transaction, let alone the cost of breeding and or purchase of the Kitties.

      There has been many positives this week, however, as 6 of the Kitty transactions were to users with no previous kitties in their litters, so that's a big plus point! Also, lots of people have got in touch, and we've received a great review on TrustedSite.com (http://trusted.site/r/08j71USIz0). Whilst real world issues meant we were unable to reach out much this week, these issues shouldn't regularly occur going forward. This meant that we couldn't restock the shop with Kitties which has reduced the number of visits over the week, as people are obviously a little alarmed at the lack of available products!

      The high gas price has made this first week quite expensive, and we've so far only generated enough mining hashes to cover 1/20th of the cost of the gifting transactions. Obviously, at this rate, the site isn't going to be sustainable for very long, so we're coming up with various other solutions, the first of which should be implemented this weekend. Fraudulent use of the site has markedly decreased since we introduced various measures towards the end of our first weekend, and we've introduced a zero tolerance to anyone seeming to abuse the system. Our logs are fairly detailed, so whilst it's a time consuming job tracking through, we hope that this zero tolerance will be supported by the many users who are using the site fairly in the hope of making the site self sufficient, and introducing lots of people to the joy of having CryptoKitties.

  590. Bought my first. Now what?

    sims226 , 13 January 2018 00:15

      So I work for a digital signature company that's building a smart contract platform. In an effort to understand what the hell I'm doing for a living, I decided to buy a CryptoKitty.

      After about 5 hours of diligence (I've never bought crypto-anything before), I finally ended up with Kitty #267787.

      I generally understand the breeding (autonomous operation) of the kitties (smart contracts), and how that changes the traits (terms).

      I'm curious about how (or if) I can edit my kitty. Like, how would I give him (he's definitely a him) a name instead of the creepy totalitarian number?

      Thanks in advance!

      sims226 , 13 January 2018 00:20


      Also realizing that the Kitties are tokens whose creation is governed by a smart contract, but not contracts themselves. SO CONFUSE! But fun.

  593. CryptoKittie RARITY: 0.00008%GooD??

    Accokitan91 , 13 January 2018 04:25

      It's kind of hard to say, especially since it is Gen 10. Rarity is not just from the combination of traits, but also the Gen of the cat. To be honest there are probably cats that are stacked with 3 to 4 of the newest traits which would make their rarity 0.00000000000001% since there are only like 4 of them in the game.

      For example this cat http://www.kittyexplorer.com/kitties/460883 is Spangled 0%, Verdigis 0%, Stunned 0%, Icy 0% ......... those traits are very few in the game they are essentially 0%.

  594. The "Trash" Kitties of yesterday...

    whyohbee , 12 January 2018 17:08

      We know that certain traits, when bred together, can mutate into other traits. For example Otaku+Simple could mutate to Fabulous. There are lots of so called cheap kitties that we don't know what their complimentary trait is, e.g Sizzurp, Cymric and others.
      When a new trait emerges that requires Sizzurp to mutate its value will rise.

      nightporter , 12 January 2018 18:40

      Each kitty must have at least a value of 0.008 ETH. The breeding fee.

      kryptofan , 12 January 2018 17:31

      If they are "virgins" and Swift cooldown, some of trash kitties become a bit more valuable, when new traits come out and they need old "trash" traits for the mutation.

      FreljordianKing , 12 January 2018 17:18

    grimdiam , 12 January 2018 18:31

      Hi, every transaction you do on the Ethereum network comes with a transaction fee. During high traffic you may need to pay a higher gas price to get your transaction confirmed, see https://ethgasstation.info/ for more details on the gas prices.

      There is a 3.75% commission on all transactions you do through the CryptoKitties contract.

      leema_ , 12 January 2018 22:51

      It would cost you 7$ if your transaction would use up all the gas you allow it to. (Gas limit) Ethgasstation tells you (on average) how much gas is actually used, given 21 GWEI "per gas" so-to-speak.

      That difference is because of the "Gas used" amount set on Eth Gas Station. You shouldn't mess with the "Gas limit" number on metamask (if it shows something over 6 millions, then it means the transaction has a problem and will fail). Metamask shows you the maximum you will pay as fee, with the preset Gas Limit mulitplied by the price of Gas, which you can edit according to current numbers of Eth Gas Station. If you are canceling a sale, you should be able to use the "Gas Price SafeLow" even though it might take a little longer. If you want it faster, use the "Gas Price Std" or increase that number to have the transaction go through even faster. In the end, you will see how much gas your transaction really used, which should be slightly less than the price announced on Metamask, as the transaction should complete before the Gas Limit amount is reached. (but it won't be as low as the price you see on Eth Gas Station as they wrote 21000 by default for the gas used) I hope I was clear enough and this helps you :)

  597. If you want to play this game properly! AND are thinking about seriously starting.

    helium_bet , 11 January 2018 23:23

      I just wanted to chime in on the "1 in a million chance" bit, cats have genomes and there's an algorithm that controls the breeding (read: decides what kind of genome the baby will have). I suggest doing some snooping on https://cryptokittydex.com/ to delve into the genetics. One in a million really doesn't apply to breeding if you understand what you're doing :-)

      DERPYBASTARD , 11 January 2018 23:55

      I know a few person including myself, didn't buy any gen 0 yet making some profits.

      I appreciate your thought, but there are other ways to play this game, which you need to explore yourself.

      vanitasCG , 12 January 2018 02:34

      I'm a bit sad now, because I was all hyped and ready to play, thinking I was about to make money. But I read your post and seriously, it makes more sense compare to everything I've read so far. So in a way, thank you !

      creaclique , 12 January 2018 01:48

      I love the idea of this game and wish I had invested when ETH was lower cost but I am concerned about the longevity of the project.

      1. If there aren't enough users willing to buy cats, don't they become devalued below their original ETH price? Or even become worthless in most cases?

      2. Where exactly does the ETH go when you purchase a cat? Does it get burned on the chain so no one can ever use it again? Does a percentage go to the developers or any company/personal wallet?

      3. You say there is no way to get ETH back out of the game besides selling cats. Is there any possibility of the devs adding a feature to "put down" the cat and receive a refund ETH? (with potentially some going to fuel the network/GAS)

      I appreciate you taking the time to explain the current ecosystem even tho I still don't understand it 100%. If you send me a kitty I would definitely try to breed and trade them! 😺

      Plenty of guides online - a number of scripts for tamper monkey as well that really help you find good kitties.

      If you want to drop money, do research first - have a plan, spend a couple days looking at cats etc.. gas is expensive & if you drop your money on trash kitties you’ll never get rid of them & you’ll buy yourself into a hole

      cdminnie , 12 January 2018 07:01

      I bought the parts and set up a rig a few weeks ago. It was quite an investment for me ($4000), but seeing the price of Eth going up and my rig supplying heat at the same time(I turned off the heating in 2nd floor in because of the rig).. I live in Norway, i think I will break even / ROI in april maybe? This was a investment for me and its really fun! I might loose it all if prices drops, but hey ho! go check out /r/ethermining and /r/gpumining

      rocketleaguebr0 , 11 January 2018 01:16

      I once put a dollar in a vending machine and got 2 cokes. Pretty much the best investment I have so far. Looking forward to what TRX can bring.

      Can you explain how the auto-birthing works / what it means?

      nanolucas , 11 January 2018 06:22

      Because of the EVER RISING FEES, ETH is not the ideal platform for games...

      let's take crypto-kitties over to EOS when it's available. It will be a smart contract OS to compete with ETH, and has NO FEES.

      We might even be able to do it on STEEM, since it has JSON capable ledger and it's a FREE BLOCKCHAIN as well, very smart, it could probably keep the data, and do the logic off-chain.

      Besides, the ETH software I have seen, has been very bad, and not fun to work with. There is no reason crypto has to be so difficult, it just needs better UI! Sheesh..

      buys-high-sells-low , 10 January 2018 23:31

      Agreed. Before breeding, if you're trying to breed and make a profit, you have to consider the chances of breeding the one you're after, and the cost involved. Breeding costs .01 ether and listing the new kitten for sale costs .003 so there's a .013 investment.. if.. you breed something good.. and it better be good to sell for more than that now.

    Xen626 , 11 January 2018 04:54

      There isn't any point in breeding anymore.. I can't see how you can break even.. .008 +.002 gas to breed .. cost total is .01. Then if you want to sell it it's another .003. .01 will buy you a better cat than you're likely to breed. GEN 0's now are selling under .08.. I can see them going to .01 also.. because .. really.. what good are they lol.. And I own 2 of em

      ennis_guy , 11 January 2018 05:02

      Not to mention ETH is about 3 times more valuable than when the game started. If ETH goes up to $10,000, I guess it will cost $100 to breed.

      TyPark , 11 January 2018 05:25

      I totally agree. I would really like to breed just to have fun, but at $10 a pop, it is just not worth it. I got into ETH late (pretty much just to play this "game"), so I don't exactly have a stock pile just laying around :/

      groovesquirrel , 12 January 2018 03:56

      The trick is to breed certain attributes to produce a kitty with more desirable attributes and sell that at a profit. Certain traits when bred together can mutate to better/more valuable cats.

      Yep I agree the network pretty much doomed this game. Devs already made a lot of money tho might be more beneficial for them to start a another game or just leave it up to run its course even selling at .1 gen:0 they are making a ton

      ChuckFresco , 10 January 2018 19:39

      Point 2 is already set in stone, gen 0 release will last one year until november this year. With a hard limit of 45000 gen 0 cats from the kitty clock and a limit of 5000 minted cats (from giveaways and contests etc.)

      Point 3 the ethereum devs are working on scalability, I haven't found a clear timeline yet though.

      Regarding concerns about the future of the game I would suggest waiting until the devs publish their first weekly log post at the end of this week.

      DERPYBASTARD , 10 January 2018 21:01

      Actually point number 2 is incorrect.

      If the first gen0 was created on Nov. 23, 2017 the last gen0 will be created 468 days later on March 6, 2019.

      45000 total gen0 cats. 4 cats an hour = 468.75 Days.

      gacbmmml , 10 January 2018 22:53

      Edit: spelling

      Kessarean , 10 January 2018 15:15

      Its the extremely high transaction fee and breeding fee that cause CK dead. Gen 0's dont cause CK dead, because lots of cheaper kitties bring in lots more casual players. Old players should be complaining about CK playability, and not about their own profitability.

      WiseGrub , 10 January 2018 15:25

    BeaverCams , 10 January 2018 00:20

      It's beyond a joke. I finally decided to put one of my cats up for sale after nearly a week of waiting due to gas prices...... safe low gas was 23, I put 30 because I really wanted this cat to sell. 0.004 eth later and the transaction still failed. Paid nearly $5 to not sell a cat. I get that it's not CK's fault but it's ruining game play.

      Milnash , 10 January 2018 01:27

      Yes, we have to wait until it goes to 5 Gwei. 40 Gwei + Birthing fee = Serious loss

      Sipho1 , 10 January 2018 01:16

      It's because the value of Ethereum is spiking. So investors are buying and selling, creating a lot of transactions. That raises the price.

      madogvelkor , 10 January 2018 04:16

      Yes can't afford to sell sh*t cats. Can't afford to breed them. Maybe can't afford to play CK...

  616. Random Cat I did not Breed??

    ALB269 , 10 January 2018 15:41

      .....I can give you mine if you want. It's a gen 8 with slow cooldown. My selling price probably would only 0.02 eth, but I'm also siring it for 0.008 eth.

      You'd have better chances of breeding a kitty that has 3/4 of these traits: alien, pouty, spock, chartreux with a PhuZiqaat. I'd say you have a 20% chance of getting one if you do. But if you bred two kitties with those traits, the chances can go as low as 8% and up to 16% if you have the right ones.

    jezztharipper , 09 January 2018 11:30

      Regarding your last paragraph, I've posted this announcement in Discord yesterday:

      Hey all! Recently there have been some concerns about the informational flow coming from the CryptoKitty team and the perceived radio silence over the last few weeks. These concerns have been taken to heart and the team is planning on doing weekly "log" posts about the progress they've made with the game and things that are planned for the future (and perhaps some other topics). You can read these posts on the CryptoKitties website, starting at the end of this week. Yesterday I mistakenly announced that an update post would be published, but plans have since changed into making a weekly post. We hope these posts will allow for more transparency in the development of CryptoKitties.

      DERPYBASTARD , 09 January 2018 11:33

      as a new player and I mean as of today.. I've lost over 50$ in tx fees and they are still stuck processing... It just makes me not want to play. I transferred over .5 to mess around with and it's just been a nightmare. So yeah, as a new player and the others that might be trying to "start" playing, this is unacceptable and I want to quit on day 1. I may just transfer what eth I have left out and just forget about it..... Sad Panda.

      obesefather , 09 January 2018 11:50

      One of the intent of the game is to educate people on how ETH and the Ethereum network works. As far as that goes, the game has done wonderfully and has taught me more about the currency than ever. But whatever flaws that ETH has is clearly reflected in the game, and for newcomers who are in the learning process, it's very easy to lose money along the way.

      The CK really need to put their foot down on this and come up with a long-term solution to make the game appeal better to newcomers, while at the same time maintain its educational purpose. I'd suggest to create CK tokens that can be traded with ETH and used to trade kitties, similar to the CryptoDogs game recently kickstarted based on the TRON network.

      When transaction fee costs more than cheapest kitties in the marketplace, you know there is something wrong.

      vanitasCG , 09 January 2018 11:41

      DISCLAIMER: I am not a part of the EThereum or CK team nor do I speak on their behalf, these are just my own thoughts as a person

      As a developer who understands what the CK team is probably going through I’ll add my $0.02. I feel that regardless of what the do, the CK devs will only be able to alleviate the problem so much - this is going to something that will take the best minds from the entire Ethereum community.

      The upcoming Casper update will probably be the actual ‘fix’ for what is making the game so hard to play right now. You can read more about Casper and Proof of Stake here https://blockonomi.com/ethereum-casper/.

      When ETH shifts to PoS, which is going to be likely in late 2018 or 2019, we will see what happens to the transaction speed and cost. At this point, CK will stake ETH on the network and verify transactions themselves much more quickly, like a traditional game backend. Could you then say then that CryptoKitties was a little too early? Maybe, but what great game isn’t just a bit before it’s day?

      Personally I’ve been patient with my kitties and treated this like a game, so I’m not that bummed out. ETH is an incredible (but risky) investment but kitties are just entertainment. For those of you who have tons of kitties tied up from whom you expect returns: don’t lose hope. Think about the fact there is a team who worked on this for years and made something you all love (well at least when it works). If you think about a project you’ve worked on and gotten love for, I’m sure you’ll understand it is most likely in their interests to keep developing CK further and keep players happy. Of course things are different in the crypto world but AxiomZen is a real company with a real bottom line and they’re doing good job given the number of employees they have. And now there is a community hard at work too. If you want to sell, I’m sure there are smart minds creating contracts to clear out your kitty dust for a fee. The tools, ecosystem will come if we are patient and I do believe, just like most things crypto, your investments into the platform will pay off down the road.

  625. Updated sales Emails!

    MayorAdamWest1 , 09 January 2018 18:51

      Thank you Adam West, I was not aware of that

      Your CryptoKitty, 453378, had a successfully siring auction for 0.004 ETH on January 9 2018. What a playboy! They'll be able to breed again once they get a little rest.

  627. "Cancel sale" button is not working at the moment

    acl_crypto , 09 January 2018 20:02

      I think it might be a metamask issue. I couldn't get metamask to open while sending ethereum and my friend couldn't cancel his aution.

      poopiecryptocats , 09 January 2018 20:05

      Couldnt get Metamask to open, either!

      leema_ , 09 January 2018 21:01

      Nothing involving ETH works right for days. I wish they would add support for other coins.

  628. Are you play Cryptokitties for fun or make money?

    zrwd , 09 January 2018 19:56

      For money

      Sipho1 , 09 January 2018 20:04

      What’s to “play”? It’s all about that cash grab. Which ended a couple of weeks ago.

      gacbmmml , 09 January 2018 22:12

      Oh poo. I'm curious about blockchain technoloty, I've read a bunch of stuff on it, and I was curious to actually play with it. I have $50 in CryptoKitties and no plans to put any more money in. It's been educational and entertaining. If my futzing around with them turns out to make you money, I'll be pleased enough.

      lemgandi , 09 January 2018 20:18

      Wait... It's supposed to be fun?

      What's fun about it!

      Its just photos of cats. They don't even do anything. Lol

      2_Genders_I_am_1 , 16 January 2018 20:52

  629. Added genes to search page

    mhazoldt , 09 January 2018 06:17

      I think your tool is a great idea! May I make a suggestion? Since "pattern color" and "secondary color" show up in different places on the genome, it would make it clearer for people searching to separate those on the page. As it is right now, someone who doesn't know better could try to search for two pattern colors, or two secondary colors, and that's never (barring a code change or glitch) going to give any results.

      If you break them out, it would be a matter of picking a maximum of one choice from each category. Your interface makes searching easier for the less-experienced, and since they seem like a perfect audience, I think making that change would add a lot of value to your search interface. Thanks for contributing to the community!

      VeganAtheistWeirdo , 09 January 2018 15:34

      Base 32 is correct if you’re not breaking the geneome into its component genes but simply displaying it as a single number. Everyone else uses kai notation though, which takes each base 32 digit and converts it to base 58 (skipping 0 and I think “l” in the alphanumerobet).

      Can we use this tool to search for kitties on sale containing specific recessive genes? If the final digit is x then it has a dominant x body gene, but the three digits closest to it represent recessive genes and so any x’s there serve to reinforce the x dominant gene.

      Join the #gene-discussion channel (https://discord.gg/Kdxjj9M) on discord and we’ll explain anything you might want explained and also be able to articulate what features are truly useful to CK Power Breeders.

      And to appeal to all the regular folk out there, you could use this design: https://i.redd.it/w7g2qghz69301.png

      WeAllMagic , 09 January 2018 19:12

    poopiecryptocats , 09 January 2018 05:55

      Yep, basically it means there are 89 original art gen:1 serpents in the game and they can't be replicated.

      Quite unique...

      Sandude1987 , 09 January 2018 06:02

  635. Why kitties' price differ so much?

    shenmue000 , 09 January 2018 06:08

      People set their own prices for their kitties. Some people are willing to sell their cat for a dollar while others demand a thousand dollars. Some cats will sell, others never will.

      jodiferous11 , 09 January 2018 08:38

      You set your own price also (demand and supply )

      Sipho1 , 09 January 2018 07:17

      its so different by any features and "Gen" of course

      Jomal_Cornelius , 09 January 2018 11:42

  636. Is Cryptokittie will outbreak of silence or silence perished in silence

    zrwd , 09 January 2018 03:58

      Yes we need more players. Why, because there will be no capital injection by means of buying our existing Kitties so we can continue to breed.

      Sipho1 , 09 January 2018 07:22

      I agree. And players like me, who have hit a complete dead end (no one buying or siring my kitties) have put in A LOT of ether into the game and there's no way of recovering it.

      leema_ , 09 January 2018 08:25

      Move CK to a cheaper and faster network. This is stupid to the extreme. Hold all CK features development until this game is playable by been cheap and fast.

      WiseGrub , 10 January 2018 04:14

  637. Eth price change increase value of kitties?

    xboxerdude , 09 January 2018 00:25

      i don't think so. but i know for sure it increases price of breeding

      dimitar99 , 09 January 2018 00:40

      There is no reason why it should have helped. Auctions still work the same. Prices for gen0 went up.

      You must use the safe low gas price or the lowest were the node pick up. But it will take time. The is no way you can pay what you didnt confirm . Check Gas Fee here


      Sipho1 , 08 January 2018 21:17

      Could you post a link to one of your failed transactions.

  641. Kittie sire, did not receive the fee

    Seek2401 , 08 January 2018 20:12

      Many people make this mistake ( Starting price 0.005 end at 0.000, in this case when no one is buying or siring until it reach 0.00, someone will take it for free or sire free.

      Sipho1 , 08 January 2018 21:21

      Has it gone through on etherscan and not just the site?

      xWounded , 08 January 2018 20:44

      Hey I had a similar issue, check the tab "internal Transactions" on etherscan. There you should see the transaction

  643. What's the easiest way to withdraw ETH from Metamask (from outside the USA so probably also involving Coinbase)? What are the typical transaction costs/fees?

    sslloooww , 08 January 2018 05:51

      If you are in europe, selling on gdax (belongs to coinbase) using a maker order is free. Then a SEPA withdrawal to your bank account costs only 0.15€

      Zyj , 08 January 2018 17:41

      I deposit eth into binance, buy bitcoin, send bitcoin to my localbitcoins account and then find one of the old trusted buyers that pays in squarecash.

      poopiecryptocats , 08 January 2018 10:15

      There’s also localethereum.com which utilises escrow. If I was a shill I’d have a referral link.

      chelsea9898 , 08 January 2018 12:48

  645. I’ve just heard about this craze and I’m intrigued as to how it works, can anyone provide a quick explanation that’s easy to understand?

    lexiesophia , 07 January 2018 19:25

      I don't know that there's a quick explanation that easily covers it...

      If you are doing this to make money... Someone on a discord channel said something I find very true. CryptoKitties is like scratch off lottery tickets. If you spend a little, you have a small chance of winning big, if you spend a lot, you have a better chance of winning big, but either way, you are probably just losing money.

      If you are playing for fun... Buy, sell and breed kitties! Finding new traits is fun! Making bizarre looking cats is fun! Giving them ridiculous names is fun!

      Either way... To play well, you need to do your homework. You will learn FAR more about genetics and how crypto currencies in general work. The crypto kitty market is very much like the alt coin market at the moment. (Check out https://coinmarketcat.co/ vs https://coinmarketcap.com/ )

      You need Ethereum to play, so if you don't own any of that crypto currency yet, that's your starting point.

      alayahlan , 07 January 2018 19:51

      The quickest explanation: they're digital collectibles and using ethereum makes them better than previous attempts at digital collectibles. They use the same technology as cryptocurrency, so you're closer to actually owning something than you are with other "collectibles" based in software like Hearthstone cards because each cat is unique, has an identified owner, can be bought/sold, and access isn't tied to a single software application. They're designed to showcase each of the features that they share with cryptocurrencies, so if you're curious, join us! :)

  646. Why are there free cats in the marketplace?

    foureyedraven , 07 January 2018 22:59

      There aren't really any free kitties in the market. The website is lagging badly. Those kitties were already bought, but the site didn't update to register that, so the countdown price timer just kept going even though kitty was probably purchased an hour ago. The odds in you getting a free or almost free kitty are very low, most of the ones on the first few pages of cheapest sorting are long gone.

      alayahlan , 07 January 2018 23:06

      The reason that it says "you're not allowed to buy this kitty" is because it's already been sold, but hasn't been updated to reflect its status yet.

      jodiferous11 , 08 January 2018 01:01

      I put a bottom on my auctions at zero sometimes and people take the free kittens.

      TyPark , 08 January 2018 02:51

      I'm guessing they went down to free because the sellers put descending prices with a 0 minimum, and since no one is able to buy kitties, they went down to 0. But as to why no one is able to buy kitties -- and I tried too -- your guess is as good as mine.

      retailnoodles , 07 January 2018 23:03

  647. If you wrote CryptoKitty descriptions, what would your best lines be?

    alayahlan , 07 January 2018 23:22

      Fluffaykitties , 08 January 2018 13:04

      Awesome! Thanks for this :)

      arthurcamara1 , 09 January 2018 08:49

  653. Just bought my first kitty. Did i overpay at .097?

    josharmour , 07 January 2018 10:02

      I thought you said 0.0097. Yes you overpaid

      Jensen2185 , 07 January 2018 10:12

      Maybe on the surface it would appear expensive for what you got. However, If you like it and it didn't break the bank then who is to say. Nobody knows what it will be worth in a year. I like it!

  654. New Cattribute: "Neckbeard"

    xDezek , 06 January 2018 18:40

      Mutation from Grimace and Dali!

      Overwatch_Falcon , 06 January 2018 18:47

      not sure if newer cattribute is as valuable as u think bc it ll just lower over time

      duysterz , 07 January 2018 05:11

  655. will i get refund of transition, if my kitty is not sold ?

    manistesting , 07 January 2018 00:10

      No. You will also have to pay a transaction fee to cancel the sale if you decide to.

      TLFP , 07 January 2018 00:34

      these people are scum... They deleted my feedback on EtherSCAM, then when I claimed they are being unconstitutional, they deleted my account

      acs20596 , 07 January 2018 01:43

  656. Have CK devs thought about supporting other Coins? such as litecoin or bch?

    dimitar99 , 07 January 2018 01:05

      I recommend you read ethereum's whitepaper, litecoin or bitcoin cash are both unable to run smart contracts on.

      rocketleaguebr0 , 07 January 2018 12:51

      I think the project is totally based on ethereum, seems very difficult to use something different. Using other thing for 'smart contracts' is going to take a longgggg time. But you are right ethereum is not able to handle the amount of transactions of cryptokitties

      kryptofan , 07 January 2018 02:55

      Qtum is a smart contract platform with Ethereum top layer. CK can be port on to Qtum network.

      WiseGrub , 07 January 2018 17:08

  657. Help! Transaction keeps getting rejected.

    leema_ , 07 January 2018 02:01

      hmm...is it pending for a long time before it gets rejected? does it use up the full gas limit before it fails? if the answer is no, then you're gas price and gas limit are probably fine.

      so in that case, my guess is that the kitty may have already been sold but hasn't been updated on the ck website yet, so you were accidentally trying to buy unavailable kitties. if the kitties you're trying to buy seem like a really good deal, this is probably what's happening.

      jodiferous11 , 07 January 2018 06:50

      Incorrect... The network takes up more gas when it is slow (yellow light on main site page) DO NOT TRUST the site when you see anything other than a green light. TRANSACTION WILL FAIL, AND YOU WILL LOSE ETHER

      acs20596 , 08 January 2018 10:48

  658. New Cattribute: "Grimace"

    xDezek , 06 January 2018 16:50

      This is from a mutation of 'Grim' and 'Saycheese'. There should be one more mutation of 'Grimace' and 'Dali' to create another cattribute.

      xDezek , 06 January 2018 16:53

      Wow such cat

      grimdiam , 06 January 2018 17:40

      It has an unidentified recessive on the eyes too.
      Edit: it turns out to be "stunned"

      zimmah , 06 January 2018 17:53

  659. Too Many New Catributes

    LaxBrother , 06 January 2018 20:35

      I quit playing for like 3 days because of gas prices and now Im completely out of the loop. Not to mention like 90% of the new Cattributes are gen0 releases. I dont have much desire to go back. Just hope my 200 cats sell over the next year...

      MayorAdamWest1 , 06 January 2018 20:47

      What is rare yesterday is never as rare tomorrow. In fact, with all these new traits coming out during high gas times and low breeding, it will make these traits MORE rare in the long run.

      wohjpt , 06 January 2018 21:04

      I agree, I wish the new cattributes would appear more slowly. With how new the game itself is, there ware WAY too many variables already in play. I've only been playing for about a week and have already seen a new fancy and like 8 new cattributes.

      alayahlan , 06 January 2018 21:39

      They are coming out quickly because people know how to breed mutations. You can read about it in a post I've just written - https://medium.com/@kaigani/the-cryptokitties-genome-project-on-dominance-inheritance-and-mutation-b73059dcd0a4

      kaigani , 06 January 2018 23:10

      Yes you are right.

      Sipho1 , 06 January 2018 20:50

  660. How would updating CryptoKitties work?

    selling-gf , 07 January 2018 00:11

      Depends on what you think defines a "version".

      The website should be no problem, they have done that multiple times. But the main ethereum contract is more difficult than you might think.

      All the kitties are administrated in one main contract. So, moving out all the kitties over to a new contract will cost a lot of gas. Not really an option I think.

      Also, to give another contract access rights to a kitty, you will always have to approve that contract first, which also cost gas.

      They might wrap the current contract into a new contract, while keeping all data stored in the main contract. The problem with smart contracts is that once they are live, you can not pull them back or change them. (although self destruct is an option)

      It will be interesting to see how they will solve this, if they need big changes to the contract.

      MrNoxer , 07 January 2018 14:41

      Dont effect notting (dos not work whit servers . you own your kitties)

      niels056 , 07 January 2018 01:42

  661. network makes this game expensive and unplayable

    kittyquester , 06 January 2018 19:57

      Keep in mind Ethereum is a worldwide decentralized blockchain that is not owned by anyone. That means CryptoKitties cannot fix anything regarding network overload, it's an Ethereum issue. But yea, everyone is in the same boat, it can get annoying.

      DERPYBASTARD , 06 January 2018 20:19

      While that sound good in theory, I can't fathom the technical difficulties that would bring with it. I don't think there are any alternative currencies that would be able to run a game like CryptoKitties at this time either. But I am by no means an expert!

      DERPYBASTARD , 06 January 2018 21:57

  662. gac price jumped? Where to check this status?

    dimitar99 , 06 January 2018 20:56

      Check here but its expensive at the moment https://ethgasstation.info/index.php

      Sipho1 , 06 January 2018 21:47

      They will go down again . now its because of the up side of etherium. They will come down in a few days

      Sipho1 , 06 January 2018 23:08

  663. Gen 1 Mistletoe

    matthewc97 , 06 January 2018 14:24

      Nice bro! That may be the lowest one I've ever seen!

      Brandonworst , 07 January 2018 04:43

      Thanks everybody for the advice! I've listed it for 2 ETH to try and see if it sells. If not, I'm just gonna hodl it and see how it goes :-)

      matthewc97 , 06 January 2018 19:59

      sell, prices are going down. or hodl and breed when gas is lower

      DarkKnightLupo , 06 January 2018 14:59

      HODL unless you need money or don't believe in the game. Its either worth 0.2-0.5 now in this depressed market, or >2 later if game picks up. Then again price of ETH may also rise so keep that in mind.

      xDezek , 06 January 2018 16:18

  664. If I am looking to invest in a gen 0, what characteristics should I look for that are most valuable?

    dane_brear , 06 January 2018 19:18

      Make sure it's not ugly

      adventuresociety , 06 January 2018 20:06

      If you buy it today it'll be worthless tomorrow, trust me, I sucked it up and bought 2 gen 0's the last drop of new Cattributes... There has been like 7 more cattributes to drop in the following 3 days and due to gas prices ive made almost nothing. Made 1.7 ether of random garbage cats in 2-3 weeks prior and now can no longer even play

      MayorAdamWest1 , 06 January 2018 20:51

      buy a purebreed gen0 or one with a memorable id, like 555555

      kryptofan , 06 January 2018 20:17

      Buy a gen 0 cat that has fancy cat attributes and try to breed a gen 1 fancy. You can still HODL the gen 0 if it has the right genes for a certain fancy even if you don't want to breed.

      BeaverCams , 06 January 2018 20:54

      as it stands, this game is expensive and unplayable. avoid buying anything until they fix the issues with the network, transaction times, prices.

      kittyquester , 06 January 2018 20:06

  665. Who would like to see a CryptoKitty Store?

    unknownplayer44 , 06 January 2018 09:17

      Wow such idea

      grimdiam , 06 January 2018 17:41

  666. I tried the new kittyhat extension (by kittyexplorer developers) and its awesome

    spb9 , 06 January 2018 01:33

      https://www.reddit.com/r/CryptoKitties/comments/7oe9xk/kittyhats_launch_giveaway/ the link to the extension is here. These are tokens that you can add/remove to a cat. If you sell a cat with an accessory on, the accessory goes with it. Also, while the extension is activated, you will be able to see anybody else's accessories on their cats!

      spb9 , 06 January 2018 01:35

      wow such a nice one! I submitted it into the contest for ya.

      KittyHats-Official , 06 January 2018 01:47

      maluno88 , 06 January 2018 01:19

      This will be a great addition to the game! It will help owners personalize their favorite kitties.

  669. Hodl kitties during High gas

    LaxBrother , 06 January 2018 00:52

      I agree 100%. I havent even tried to play in like 3 days.. It sucks!

      MayorAdamWest1 , 06 January 2018 03:11

      Lol then you are missing out some good opportunities out there. High gas = fewer sellers = less competition.

      flexr123 , 06 January 2018 03:37

      Tbh, this is when you should sell. All kitty prices are steadily increasing with the gas price. If you want a chance to sell your kitties with a higher value, this is it.

      But make sure you sell what you are confident can be sold. Otherwise, if you set it all up for sale but no one bought, then you're forced to cancel all the sales once the kitty prices goes down again.

      izzulaizad95 , 06 January 2018 07:23

      be careful, I tried two purchases that failed. lost the gas :(

      ChesterKedi , 07 January 2018 04:54

  670. Launching CryptoKittyShop.com - get totally free CryptoKitties

    cryptokittyshopcom , 06 January 2018 01:06

      With the new update you should remove videos that are over 2 min long.There is no point in watching a 30 min video sincde i noticed the 20 points notification pops up only once

      ornella99 , 08 January 2018 01:20

      Thanks for being upfront about the monero .js miner. Good luck with the site!

      pnrrr , 06 January 2018 01:38

      Good idea. Something new to pump up CryptoKitties suffering a bit in the last days.

      manaland , 06 January 2018 10:37

      I think it's a great idea, I think that browser mining on your site is fine, since you're so upfront about it. Are there plans for a referral program on the site?

      1gpayAtinlay , 07 January 2018 09:51

      Ehi, something changed?

      "You'll get 5 Kitty Points for each full video that you watch, and after 2 minutes a claim form will show below the video that will reward you with 20 Kitty Points. Please make sure that you watch the video on this site, don't use the 'watch on YouTube' button"

      manaland , 07 January 2018 14:35

  671. Idea for invite more players enter the game。

    zrwd , 06 January 2018 04:56

      DarkKnightLupo , 06 January 2018 13:08

      Do you want this game to turn into a ponzi scheme? lmao

      rocketleaguebr0 , 06 January 2018 16:12

      if this game referral system have reward. the game will be crazy.make a guess,activity player 50000 now,6 month will be 500000, 9 month will be 5000000.......1 year cats will rule this planet.

  672. Pricing and Cost to Sell

    BigGatorD , 06 January 2018 01:32

      They were listed when gas price was 1-5, ( most prices that are 0.003 eth started from 0.07 eth. to take it of it cost its better to get the 3$ than 0$ . and if you have the guts to take it of. When are you going to sell it. please say if I am wrong.

      Sipho1 , 06 January 2018 17:37

      $3 is better than $0.

      liamchar-gaming , 06 January 2018 03:49

      bigGator I totally agree with you, at this time it is possible to buy some good cats underpriced.

      kryptofan , 06 January 2018 08:34

      Their accidentally listing them that low imo

      Brandonworst , 06 January 2018 10:01

  673. Band For CryptoKitties

    Phillips_inc , 05 January 2018 22:45

  674. New to Cryptokitties - transactions keep failing

    Nillim , 05 January 2018 14:02

      In my personal opinion you are better of as a new person to the game to spend this time to do some research into what is good cats to buy and breed and await gas prices to drop to 1-7 again, which will happen as soon as Etherum is done with it's current explosion and bonkers trading volumes as a result.

      Make targeted buys if prices on stuff drops too low, but wait with breeding and keep transactions on the whole to an absolute minimum. One of the slight downsides of having the game running on ETH, the awesome part being that your game currency itself goes up in value over time and helps pay for the game ;o)

      If you had purchased 1 ETH on the 1 Dec and you had invested 50% of that into kitties at this stage - you'd still be at a plus in USD..!

      And I am aware of the opportunity cost, but having a game pretty much pay for itself while playing is also pretty awesome.

      madmaister , 05 January 2018 15:21

      try higer gas price 23 gas price must by oke

      niels056 , 05 January 2018 14:16

      I tried yesterday 21 gas price (about 5pm eastern time)... all transactions are still pending

      kryptofan , 05 January 2018 14:38

    Sipho1 , 05 January 2018 15:58

      Recommended Gas Prices keep going higher and higher, im waiting for them to return to what they were when i started playing, but right now im kinda getting scared

      Kappagpt , 05 January 2018 17:21

      I waited for it to be 21-23 then I paid 2 $

      Sipho1 , 05 January 2018 17:45

  676. Unable to do anything, is it just me?

    Noiprox6 , 05 January 2018 08:01

      Yeah, today's been really bad for transactions. It's not just you.

      It'll get a lot better, though. Hopefully tomorrow.

      jodiferous11 , 05 January 2018 08:16

      I tried buying a kitty about 45 minutes ago, and it still says "pending." The kitty's page still shows it for sale by the prior owner. Also earlier in the day I was getting intermittent problems with pages not loading.

      Hard to say if this is out of the ordinary though, as others here have been reporting problems all along. But personally I've bought about 30 cats and this is only the second time I've had a problem.

      retailnoodles , 05 January 2018 08:17

      One thing to know is that ETH transactions happen one at a time. So if you queue up 20 of them, 19 will not even start trying to complete until the one(s) before them have completed. If your current oldest transaction had a low gas price then it will hold up all the other ones, potentially for days or more. Even if the gas price is good on all of them there are many more pending transactions than the ETH network can handle right now so it’s going to take a long time. And then once the ETH transaction happens, it will take a while for the website to catch up to all the network activity so you won’t see your purchased kitty for a long time either.

      It’s crazy right now, and it’s not just you, but since it’s ETH network traffic there’s not a lot that the devs can do about it. This is a learning experience for everyone involved, and it’s been mostly fun but there are things like this that will crop up from time to time.

      WeAllMagic , 05 January 2018 08:49

      Well, as an update I had moved to a second pc last night and was successful in purchasing my first cat but after that it was all pending in metamask again so as a test today on the original pc I took my 12 word seed and removed metamask and used the seed to reinstall my account and now my transactions are working no problem so I guess it's metamask messing up then?

      Noiprox6 , 05 January 2018 18:43

      This sucks paid to breed the eths been taken but the kitties did not hump or anything so im down £8 what is pure extortion anyway and left with nothing the game is essentially useless at the moment

  678. Fix the problem of accidentally selling your kitty!!

    faatnntaaf , 05 January 2018 01:15

      NOOOOOO!!! That's so heart-breaking! I absolutely agree that there should be more "are you sure...?" checks. Mistakes can be so costly and sad. Give your sister my condolences.

      jodiferous11 , 05 January 2018 02:46

      What if this is an elaborate scam to get people to donate eth :))) ?

      titieuro , 05 January 2018 07:23

      Actually no. I mean, I feel sorry for your sister, but as heartbreaking as this story is: from the very beginning Cryptokitties has had an educational purpose, that is to educate people about cryptocurrencies and if there is one thing you NEED to learn when it comes to cryptocurrencies, it´s that there is no failsafe. YOU are fully responsible for all your actions. It´s good that bad things can happen, because they are never as bad as losing all your funds due to a lack of oversight.

      The gen0 was worth about 200-300$ at that time, correct? Let´s say that was something comparable at that price range, i.e. 300$ headphones. Would you give these headphones to someone who has really no clue about how to use them and then complain when they are wasted after a shower, since the package didn´t say "not waterproof"? I hope you get what I mean. It is crucial that people learn that actually controling your assets means you have to be educated and act responsibly.

      I´d donate a low gen cat if that is of any help.

      artiscience , 05 January 2018 04:49

  679. How can I credit the acc

    Keong88 , 05 January 2018 11:50

      Hi! You can send ethers to this account, or you can import your existing account with ethers and kitties.

      Since Tokenary app is not an official CryptoKitties app, let's better talk in in-app support chat or our Telegram group. You can access it from Settings tab.

      grachyov , 05 January 2018 12:01

      If you own ETH, you have to transfer them to the address you control (I don´t know the app, doesn´t look official btw.). If you don´t own Ether, you need to buy them at an exchange. The metamask browser plugin allows to buy ETH at Coinbase. I personally prefer to buy at other exchanges that are less expensive, but coinbase comes with a user-friendly interface, so if you are new to all this, it might be the best place to go.

      artiscience , 05 January 2018 12:18

  680. This is too expensive for me (or I am doing something wrong)

    titieuro , 05 January 2018 07:20

      0.008 eth breeding cost * 1000 usd / eth = $8

      we are all paying

      appxmatthew , 05 January 2018 07:23

      Come back in six months when things are working better, and the costs will be way lower.

      StickeeHands , 05 January 2018 07:22

      Used to be 0.015 and gas cost was 60+ gwei. Way she goes.

  681. Recommendations on Pure Bred Amur

    ADHDownsyndrome , 05 January 2018 06:54

      IMO: Hold it until we find a fancy combo that needs Amur, then sell or breed to try to make a fancy.

      WeAllMagic , 05 January 2018 08:54

  682. How do I check my kitty's recessive genes?

    StickeeHands , 05 January 2018 07:31

      If you look at the kai genome, each cattribute has four values. I think the rightmost one is the dominant one and the other three are recessive. I get more info when I mouse over/tap each number.

  684. How to choose a kitty that stays rare

    jodiferous11 , 04 January 2018 17:40

      Great article I also made a video similar to that thankfully we touched on similar points. I was going to release an update to that video mind if I include the ideas of purebreda and first of its kind?

      ChuckFresco , 04 January 2018 19:07

      X can't rotate (to mutate), and W should be in tier-3. Tier-4 mutations can't exist. However, X may come via a gen0, but then it wouldn't be a tier-4 mutation.

      incredibly frustrating. 3rd time in 3 days I've tried to breed my kitties with no success. Network is slow.

  687. What I've learned, and wish to learn

    izzulaizad95 , 04 January 2018 13:20

      I think it´s Keep It Simple Stupid as always. A simple strategy scaled to the maximum gives you the most secure gains. Everything else is rather speculative.

      There is an account (saw it recently, forgotten which one )that focussed solely on producing and selling gen1 and gen2. The account accumulated around 15-20 gen0 and had them constantly breeding. I think this is quite a solid win situation, given the person didn´t buy the gen0 at, say 8 ETH or so. If you can buy them at around 0.5 you should be able to recover the price after some time and then produce gains. Since it is a rather "conservative" approach (if one could call a one-month-old strategy in a completely explorative game based on a still not mature technology like that) and it won´t make you a lot of money, but as far as I see it, it still works.

      There are other and more risky straight-forward-strategies that are profitable, but involve more risk. Some people collect new traits and sell them immediately as you did. I personally find that too risky since you don´t really know whether a trait is actually rare at the beginning, but if you miss out you won´t be able to make profit if it turns out to be a valuable trait. Losing money on this strategy is not surprising, but of course there is also money to make.

      I personally find collecting the most appealing strategy. I am looking for interesting ID numbers, old kitties (<10.000 and <100.000) whenever someone sells them for a good price. I also look into genuine cats. I think the Hamster Cat that was generated in the recent Breeding Contest is such a genuine cat and buy using the traits we already have you can think about many other good looking cats (i.e. completely white cats with red eyes). And then there are funny numbers. I recently found that someone managed to generate cat number 444444 at generation 44. This person had a strategy and followed it with rigor (I don´t see how this would be possible as a matter of coincidence - the person deliberately bred a gen43 and a gen1 and probably did that many times).

      TL.DR, I believe in strictly followed yet simple strategies. If you have a plan and evaluate it, you can eventually make money or have a lot of fun.

      artiscience , 04 January 2018 14:56

      Liked reading. Problem is the new traits they come fast. If you look at seafoam how many people that have it. In case if it is needed to breed a new trait. Collection for us is going to be tough with this 0.008

      Sipho1 , 04 January 2018 17:21

      I just wanna say I did the exact if not almost exact same thing as you.
      Imma sucker for breeding new traits and chased them as you did.
      I broke even twice, the most recent was the Elk season. I was so happy I finally broke enough back then and the moment I know, those 4 new traits happened.
      I spent way too much during that time and finally made a G2 Flamingo which I kept on breeding like no tomorrow only making one G4 Seafoam.
      The profit definitely didn't cover much of the cost and then PhuZiqaat happened. Didn't managed to make any of that new fancy and today these 4 traits dropped again lol.
      I personally feel that the new traits are dropping too fast for us breeders to cover back our cost. We're not even talking about profit and since there's more people selling than buying, we're in some kind of trouble here.
      I truly enjoy breeding and getting them success, but with the current state of the game, it's a little tough to sustain.
      I lost more than I should and kept telling myself to stop/slow down lol.
      I'm gonna rethink my strategy and most likely gonna end up spending more, lol. Stupidity at its finest XD
      Cheers, man!
      You're not alone :)

      thattanna , 04 January 2018 15:37

      It is supossed you must have 'purebreed' cats ready to generate the new rare traits, to get better chance of breeding the right thing.

      kryptofan , 04 January 2018 16:53

      this is great that you are self reflective. these were good lessons and should help you continue to improve in the future.

  689. Dev Status Update - 1/3/18

    Bojakn , 04 January 2018 05:04

      The full-time community manager should be a big thing, people need to be reassured the game is going somewhere with regular updates, much like anywhere else in the business world. Sadly people have treated this like an investment so knowing the game has a future will come a lot from regular updates.

      Dynamic gas price defualt - Excellent - I am super lazy and hate having to check ETH Gas Station. However due to Bun in Oven bug I have been useing MyEtherWallet which allows me to set once then forget.

      Kitty Sink or Kitty Sink alternative. Good to know they are looking into this. Anything that lowers the %age of kittens on sale (over 1/5th atm) and incentivizes players not selling more than they breed is good. Right now we can breed and sell. I get told I am ruining the game by playing too much basically. That shouldn't be possible.

      If achievements come out it would be good to go back in time and add them to profiles that managed X and Y in the past, I mean that is what the blockchain is all about anyway. I got the first gerbil and persian for example - would be nice to have that on my profile!

      I haven't exactly been quiet about the fact I think the sink or sink alternative needs to be in before more players come to the game. The longer the delay of a fix for that the lower gen 0s will go in the short term but it does mean when the new languages launch players are much more likely to stay and there will be a lower entry price for them.

      Carlini8 , 04 January 2018 05:15

      This is just great! I like all the updates!

      appxmatthew , 04 January 2018 07:24

      I am extremely excited by this article.

      I am about on my first full week of CryptoKitties and I like it a lot so far. I'm a college student who regularly daytrades and I found this via twitter from a few Crypto traders.

      I believe this game will have both recreational value (fun) and monetary value (investments) more than it has at the current moment with these future updates.

      A CM will be able to grow the platform I think, per say. As it allows an outreach to a good amount of skeptical and unsure players as well as gives those already involved a spark of interest in things ahead to do .

      The Kitty Sink, as an investments standpoint is entirely needed in my opinion. To provide a finite amount of cats dated November 2018 as the end of Gen 0 production, and then pump out cats at the levels they do while remaining with the current player involvement needs to stop, and this seems like a great solution.

      I noticed someone around here said that they think a good amount of the players are from North America, and I have to say I potentially agree. To be able to have these languages implemented and then maybe a regional CM as well should bring enhanced traffic for sure.

      I am extremely happy to hear all this and excited to see where this takes us!

      Brandonworst , 04 January 2018 07:34

      Thanks for the update. I mentioned it in a previous thread but would be great if you could put it to the Devs, 'A WATCH LIST' so you could keep track on kitties you'd like to buy.

      nightporter , 04 January 2018 15:31

      Omgosh the ETH gas defaulting to the correct ETH will be amazing. Thanks that will a TON! Tired of checking ethgasstation.

      Also achievements ideas like Global Fancy Leaderboard could be implemented where the person who discovers a new Fancy gets some recognition!

      Thanks for the updates!

    siddartha1492 , 04 January 2018 08:46

      i vote yes. according to my calculations developers made over 1,000,000 from founder cat sales alone. Put some of that to use!

      9hil , 04 January 2018 09:16

      I vote yes but at the same time I think it’s a little too late for that

    nightporter , 04 January 2018 12:09

      Wonky is eye type. Pumpkin and Thundergrey are eye colour.

      nightporter , 04 January 2018 12:10

      Pumpkin mutates from combination of thundergrey + gold, right?

      So far, there's no mutation resulting from wonky + another eye type

      izzulaizad95 , 04 January 2018 12:40

      Market is still dying, pushing new traits even with gen0 would not save it

      Hecatonquiro , 04 January 2018 12:49

      True, but market is destroyed, cause of imbalance on prices. Gen:0 0.25 - 0.18, Gen:1 0.015, more than 10 times...

      Hecatonquiro , 04 January 2018 17:12

      New trait Gen 0, are the main killers of the game. Mutation keeps it going

  694. Transactions pending for hours

    Rombock , 04 January 2018 10:23

      you need gas price 21 to get the transactions completed quickly for now.

      vanitasCG , 04 January 2018 10:56

      See https://ethgasstation.info/ for the standard gas price needed to get your transactions confirmed in a reasonable time.

      You can retry transactions with higher gas price via metamask if you wish. Transactions with low gas price will also get confirmed eventually, but it can take very long when the Ethereum network is seeing high traffic.

    izzulaizad95 , 04 January 2018 05:27

      Sorry guys, I'm quite new. Could you please explain me what is OPSkins and how it works and why could be better to be used?

      manaland , 04 January 2018 10:55

      I'm buying certain traits via OPSkins, be happy to pick yours up there if they're the traits i'm looking for.

      ChartreuxCollector , 04 January 2018 05:30

      Have a look,


      All the rare ones were kinda sold before the price went down. But then again, the ones up in OPSkins weren't all that rare too.

      CatCreators , 03 January 2018 15:56

      I'm still buying haha! Just only buying kitties I actually want (specific traits).

      ChartreuxCollector , 03 January 2018 15:09

      Just check the transactions happening. Yes, people are still buying, hiring and breeding.

      artiscience , 03 January 2018 15:10

      Yes buying latest trait and sire latest. Older if its needed like alien, daffodils etc

  699. come on CK devs. You really not going to lower 0.008 ETH breeding fee?

    dimitar99 , 03 January 2018 07:50

      While ETH steadily rising, the breeding fee remained the same. This means that it becomes more and more expensive to play. Breeding fee should be dynamically adjusted, to remain the same in fiat.

      hermetrikus , 04 January 2018 02:34

      We understand that this is frustrating for you folks. With the highly fluctuating price of Ether, it seems like the birthing fee is different every day. We appreciate the input, user voice is important, keep it coming!

      We are considering improvements all times, and this is a issue that involves many aspects so I'd like to share some technical perspective on that fee.

      To start off, this fee that exists only for the maintenance of the ecosystem. Users pay the fee and it's an open market to give birth, whoever gives birth to a cat that is due earns the fee.

      Also keep in mind this mechanism was ultimately implemented as a decentralized guarantee to the community that CK will remain forever despite of what the future might bring.

      Ok, now understanding the values! The giving birth operation is actually costly in Ethereum, which is the flip side of the guarantee of immortal kittens. It costs approximately 250k gas, and the gas price itself fluctuates a lot as we know by now. Take as example this recent tx: https://etherscan.io/tx/0x5cd71d4266c20a23e9ede537728f433cbdd3e82230a009a57201a8883c33bcad The caller got back the value of 8 finney, but at a gas price of 31gwei paid 7.9 finney, leaving barely any gain margin.

      Summarizing, changing birth fees is not an easy call at any rate, and we got strong responses before when doing it without warning. For all that, please keep in mind we do consider it, but there is immense value for the maintenance of the game to make it stable and predictable.

      flockonus , 05 January 2018 01:05

      No, don't do this.

      Already 96.5k kitties on the market, basically 1/5 of all kitties are on sale.

      If the fee is lowered people will breed more. Overpopulation will continue at an even higher rate. If anything, up the fee! Slow people breeding while trying to fix the issue.

      "More money in the ecosystem means more activity which means more chances to sell, even if it is at a lower price." More breeding = lower %age of the cats of sale getting bought.

      Carlini8 , 03 January 2018 16:24

      The devs mentioned a thorough market analysis is required to see what the breeding fee can be changed into. You can expect them to devote some time to this soon once things speed up in the office.

      DERPYBASTARD , 03 January 2018 16:52

      My kitties already dropped in value 50% when they lowered from 0.015. There's nothing we can do about crazy gas prices, but lowering the breeding fee will only flood the market even more.

      Jensen2185 , 03 January 2018 08:36

    Brandonworst , 03 January 2018 23:59


      titieuro , 04 January 2018 00:08

      It's not a Santaclaws. It is a Mistletoe. And I guess without looking at its genes it is probably because the genes of the mistletoe parent remained dominant.

      artiscience , 04 January 2018 00:49

      My BAD. The genepool of the wild is "dddd" which is all Santaclaws, that is what I had meant. Not sure if that means anything.

  702. I am noob on cryptokitty Need help!!

    kazish009 , 03 January 2018 22:38

      Hello Kazish, I will do my best to try to explain what you can do now.

      You can buy, sell, and breed your kitties. You can breed between you own kitties, or you may put your kitty up for sire and vice-versa for a fee to breed with another users kitty.

      The thing to breeding is breeding the selected "Cattributes" you want. Certain cattributes have more value than others. There's a type of kitties called "Fancy" which is a specific makeup of genes that pops out a more "rare" kitty. All the tools needed to get a good idea on this are located on the right hand side of the Reddit under "Cool Third Party Sites"

      Right now, to me, this is the beginning stages. Kitties are constantly pumped out in Gen 0 Rate every 15 minutes until November 2018. Then, Gen 0 Kitties are done being made, in theory raising the price of lower Gen kitties.

      Also, in Spring 2018 there's a rumored App coming out for the Cryptokitties.

      Above, I also forgot to explain Gens. Gens are constantly evolving and it seems that the lower the Gen the more valuable, as well as kitty #.

      This is very choppy, as I am new myself, but I hope I could alleviate on some of the things swirling around. It's a lot to wrap your head around.

      Hell, I have been really trying to get into this and have yet to make my first fancy >:(


      Brandonworst , 03 January 2018 22:48

  703. I have a question for cryptokitties

    niels056 , 03 January 2018 22:30

      The IDs 101-5000 are reserved for exclusive cats and minted cats. They are all manually created so it's still possible they will create new exclusive or minted fancies in the future. Maybe for contests/events and such.

      DERPYBASTARD , 04 January 2018 03:51

      Okay, thanks for the information Good that I know that I do not buy something that can still be added to.

      you are sure that the kittens have to be made with this idd then they can still have 500 fance relaes or a former vampire kittie then the original vampire kittie number 1 is certainly not worth much

      niels056 , 04 January 2018 10:22

  704. How do I sell some ETH with Metamask?

    Mr_Frodo_Cat , 03 January 2018 22:16

      Send your ETH to an exchange where you have an account and a deposit address set up. Coinbase/GDX is the most popular in the USA. Then you can exchange your ETH for USD and send it to your bank account. Note that this requires becoming verified with the exchange, a process that will take time - sometimes several weeks. Or you could use Metamask to send it to shapeshift.io and convert it into BTC and use a website like localbitcoins to sell the BTC in person for cash to a person - technically faster but also much riskier. Don't attempt this if you don't know what you're doing.

      Overwatch_Falcon , 03 January 2018 22:19

      How do I send my ETH from Metamask to the ETH wallet I set up on Coinbase please?

    ChuckFresco , 03 January 2018 10:44

      Hi everyone,

      As a person, with a bit of experience playing this game from about the start, I decided to create this video to explain some topics about the game. More importantly what is "RARE" in the market at the moment.

      Topics covered:

      • 0:36 What Generation Kitties are "Rare"

      • 2:00 What Cattributes are "Rare"

      • 3:15 What is the end goal of the game

      If you are wondering WHY your Kitties are NOT SELLING this should help. Keep in mind these are my opinions regarding the game, but I have been able to successfully sell in the past few days pretty consistently. Please feel free to ask me questions below or follow my channel for more videos.


      EDIT: Please use https://kitty.appx.hk/ for your kitty breeding predicting needs it was a site not available when I first made the video and is the site I use now! Hope to release a new video this weekend!

  707. High tx fees

    playfulexistence , 03 January 2018 20:12


      Look at the bottom right of the page, what's the low?

      Right now its like 21 gwei which is pretty high.

      But yesterday it was 2 or 3 so I just sent them with 4 gwei and they went quick af.

      elgrandesombrero , 03 January 2018 20:28

      and remember ethereum ETH right now is sky rocketing, the price is going up and up. so people is just waiting for an eth price drop to start buying again ck

      kryptofan , 04 January 2018 17:52

  708. Weird gas prices

    titieuro , 03 January 2018 20:02

      I just paid 0.89 USD now. With the cheapest kitties I see on the site

      Sipho1 , 03 January 2018 20:06

      Gas Fees were 0.89

      Sipho1 , 03 January 2018 20:50

      When metamask suggests an abnormal gas limit (around 6 million), just reject the transaction. You need to refresh the page and try again until a proper gas limit is suggested (75k-250k). Check https://ethgasstation.info/ for the current gas price.

      DERPYBASTARD , 04 January 2018 05:28

  709. I finished my Crypto Kitties paper toy script! I wanted to share the results (more info in the comments)

    Fold-Friends , 03 January 2018 01:03

      This finished version shows the cat's name, number and owner. The colour blocks at the top and bottom of the page are determined by the original's background colour.

      I've started putting some of these printable kitties up for download on my paper craft site - folduptoys.com. It's a pretty basic page for now with 8 cats, but now I've figured out how I'm displaying the images etc I can clean things up a little.

      There are plans to add a "request cat" feature in the future to turn your favorite pats into printable pals. But for now the plan is to release the rest of wave 1 (16 cats) before turning my attention to fancy cats since downloadable versions of all of the unique cats would be really nice.

      This project is part of a larger series of design challenges I do for my youtube channel "Let's Design Paper Toys", so far the script for the video explaining how everything was done and what went wrong/right with the [project is 8 pages long, but I'll start work at recording/editing what I need to tomorrow. So keep your eyes peeled for the video.

      In the meantime I've been trying to live stream myself converting kitties, but I keep lagging out, again, I'll try more tomorrow.

      Thanks for this! I know you're a big fan of the shading, but I really prefer the cartoon original look. Any chance you might offer one without the shading? :D

      Overwatch_Falcon , 03 January 2018 02:20

      jodiferous11 , 03 January 2018 08:29

      Hi! Thanks for all your work, brilliant! I am wondering can I mad the paper model for chosen No. kitty? I thought it was a script to generate the paper model for input No. and that is a good idea

      logan0055 , 03 January 2018 09:23

      I really like it (aside from the shading). To serve as a giveaway, however, we need another script that generations an address and prints the seedphrase or private key + introduction to CK onto the cat (i.e. the inside). While this is far from "secure" in a cryptographic sense, it would be a nice starter for non-crypto folks.

  710. MetaMask not working?

    Klu8Klu6 , 03 January 2018 18:37

      Metamask seems to be working just fine - the ethereum network is seeing high traffic today which means the suggested gas price (not the gas limit!! The suggested gas limit is always good unless it's 6 million) is too low. Always check https://ethgasstation.info/ for the recommended gas price. 10 may take a while longer because miners prioritize transactions with higher gas prices.

      zrwd , 03 January 2018 06:05

      what it's worth? What are you talking about is the question As a market grows and real people will ever collect it can price high

      1st fancy of every race (virgin not so important I think) and first 100 fancy's ever made wss then first 5000 kittens also mss

      if my now knows what the potential is then wss can make a lot of money but now you are not sure there are so many factors, but it can be big

      niels056 , 03 January 2018 13:23

      advantage if the game is still growing for collect value 1: it is the internet 2: clear prices 3: only 10,000 collectors needed for higher value ever 4: collectors wss will not be poor people 5: there is only 1 of each (not 1st series 1000 pieces made of)

      as you can see and think, you can become mad;)

    kittyquester , 03 January 2018 03:03

      Hey everyone as an experienced crypto kitty player please note that at the moment only gen:0 and gen:1 with rare traits have any value if you are breeding past gen:5 you will not sell much barring a fancy cat. Please keep this in mind if you are past gen:5 you probably won’t sell.

      If you have any questions please feel free to ask or check out this video I made explaining my reasoning for what is valuable:

      Sipho1 , 03 January 2018 05:16

      For those of you saying the marketing hasn't shifted, I'd love to know why there are now pages of new gen0 kitties that are at .3-.1. That's a HUGE drop in days. A few days ago cats were at 1+ ETH. People aren't paying a premium for them anymore...

But, everyone needs to be aware that you need to watch your gas when using this method. 2 or 3 times now I have setup everything, made it to the metamask pop up and say the gas is at a safe 5? I'll put 8 and the transaction will fail and I'm prtty sure I keep losing my .008 ether. (my stupidity for not setting the gas limit im assuming :./ )

      How do you do this with bidOnSiringAuction? For the amount to send, do you send the breeding fee (0.008) plus the current bid asking price? And what causes the metamask gas limit to be set too high? Is it safe to lower it to a sane amount?

      multinationalcat , 02 January 2018 22:16

      Can't recommend to do that without focus. Shit kitties may not be shit kitties, but a lot certainly are. For instance in the early days sluggish and slow kitties were assumed to be "shit kitties", but some of these were in the first 100.000 row, which certainly gain value if the game keeps being developed. But just buying without plan/strategy /focus seems to me like a waste of money on the wrong end.

      Check out the sidebar for links to websites that have intro guides!

      Bojakn , 02 January 2018 22:36

      Take your time to learn about the value of different traits at different generations; look at sale history, not just current asking price. Use a breeding calculator to see what the chances are to pass on valuable traits you want so you’re not (too) surprised by the results — these only give probabilities but the probabilities can sometimes be hard to intuit. And have fun! Name your kitties, go for unique traits and colors that mean something to you, don’t focus 100% on profits (day trading alt coins is more lucrative and probably just as risky).

      WeAllMagic , 03 January 2018 05:45

      Only buy kitties with almost all the traits you want to pass on. You can get lucky sometimes, but breeding out unwanted traits can get expensive. It's usually worth the extra cost for the right sire. Also get as low as generation that you can afford. When you breed, the offspring with be the next Gen after the parent with highest Gen. So if you breed a G5 and G8, the offspring will be a G9.

    AuroraPurrs , 01 January 2018 23:00

      While I suppose it's possible that all your other cats are related to the sire, it's more likely that you're a victim of the siring bug. I even have one cat that can't be bred at all anymore. As far as I have seen, CK Core has not even acknowledged this issue, though several people have asked about it.

      Sometimes moving the desired matron to a different kitty wallet will allow you to breed with the sire--it worked for me one time. But it shouldn't be necessary to work around this issue.

      VeganAtheistWeirdo , 01 January 2018 23:15

      It is with personal breeding and from the marketplace. Also, I can pick the 4 below even though I can only see part of the box. It just seems to be a problem with ability to actually view or scroll to my other cats. Once I was able to sort them differently before and pick the one I wanted because it then showed up first. But that doesn't seem to work now. I would attach a picture but I am not sure how lol

  742. New Years day 2018 finds us with 4 New cattributes. Not sure exactly when they showed up as I was busy Celebrating creating this hangover I now suffer from. LOL

    codypanama , 01 January 2018 19:50

      4 new cattributes started new years eve morning and new fancy (PhuZiqaat) started at night.

      weareallfungi , 01 January 2018 19:57

      Did anyone see the UFO kitty? It isn't showing up in cryptokittydex and I couldn't find it again after looking for alien eyed sires, but it was a green cat with 3 alien eyes in a flying saucer.

      AuroraPurrs , 01 January 2018 22:30

      Where do you find out what attributes create something new? Like the list for UFO kitty?

  744. I have a sub 5k kitty. How can I figure out how much it is worth?

    FuckILoveBoobsThough , 01 January 2018 22:04

      I wouldn't sell it - you won't get much, at least easily. The value of low ID kitten won't be appreciated as much as it has potential. In my opinion, people are currently following latest traits more than they actually deserve. A lot of traits are really completely common, they just happen to appear at a later point by gen0 injection. There will be a time where ID under <10.000 will be treated as real rarities. We are not there at this points and it will take some time (2-3 years) so I can only recommend to keep and wait. At least if you plan to sell.

      artiscience , 01 January 2018 22:16

  745. Question about Fancy cats

    BeaverCams , 02 January 2018 01:45

      Maybe later they will make Fancies with 5 or 6 traits, making them even harder to get :)

      weareallfungi , 02 January 2018 02:04

      I would be tickled to death if the combination ended up creating a real fancy hamster cat. How hilarious would that be?

      jodiferous11 , 02 January 2018 04:05

      Not always. There's DuCat, which has only 2 required traits (cymric, tongue). But all the others discovered so far do have 4 traits involved.

      As long as the cats you're matching up are of a reasonably quick cooldown and you have patience, your combo will probably work eventually, but you should still check on one of the available breeding calculators to get a better idea.

      VeganAtheistWeirdo , 02 January 2018 02:00

      When I am intersecting the cats on kittydex, do the genes I need to make the fancy reflect when intersecting the fancy or the parents?

  746. How to best promote my kittie for siring?

    CKJU , 01 January 2018 19:05

      Some kind of Kitty personal ad would be cool, but it probably won’t happen because some people would use it to trick and mislead new users who don’t know any better. That’s why you have to click just to see kitty names these days. If someone wants to make a third party solution for this, that could be neat though, and would probably solve the “new user” problem since you’d have to be a little advanced to even find the website.

  747. Identical Twins

    Concorde899 , 01 January 2018 19:36

      that's interesting. what are the odds of that happening do you know? Cheers

      codypanama , 01 January 2018 19:54

      Every blockchain transaction tx is unique, hence every kitten must be unique since their attributes generation algorithm is based on blockchain tx id. The only difference in these twins are the number (ID). Like identical twins in real life I guess...

      Concorde899 , 01 January 2018 20:03

      They're identical, but not twins. The parents are different.

  748. How do One of a Kind Combinations Affect Worth?

    calicoleaf , 01 January 2018 13:51

      Just a side note about stats etc. Uniqueness doesn't imply rarity.

      For example if everyone in the world rolls 25 dice and you roll just some uninteresting sequence of numbers, it will actually be highly likely that your sequent is unique but among the whole world. (Someone can do all the math if they like. But that's statistics for you!). Probably noone else on earth rolled that exact set in order.

      Its unique but not rare or interesting because, without putting some constraints on what constitutes interesting or rare (All one number etc, only even.), The are presumably untold other examples of unique numbers. So it's unique but completely common and boring.

      beetlefeet , 01 January 2018 19:27

      I agree with you 100% that's why I only breed rare like this one https://www.cryptokitties.co/kitty/436855

      Increase your gas limit. Think of 21000 as a minimum.

      You can refer to https://ethgasstation.info/ for current recommended Gas price in relation to transaction time.

      No way! That's amazing! You should get some sort of award for that (after you get elk, of course).

      My ideal cat would be a cloudwhite calicool with wingtips, chestnut or topaz or strawberry eyes, whixtensions or soserious, and skyblue with granitegrey OR coffee with kittencream.

      Oh man, that would be such a pretty cat.

  767. Some old cat stats (Kitty ID <10,000)

    spb9 , 31 December 2017 02:07

      Very interesting. We need more data crunching. Thanks for your research.

      artiscience , 31 December 2017 03:47

      I have made some similar incomplete research showing there is a wast difference between the early cats themselves too. Unlike what is to be expected there is actually only 118 cats between 0-1000.

      As a result 0-1000 can't really be compared to anything else in my opinion, and the sales data seem to suggest those cats are treated very very differently.

      However even between 1000-1750 and say 1750-2500 there is a massive avg. price difference. So I'd say it would be a very useful analysis to also look at prices purely based on cat # rather than generation (or even combine the two).

      But super analysis, thanks so much!

    SparklePriestess , 30 December 2017 20:03

      Seconding this. And I'll add: I'd like if I could get an email if one of my bookmarked kitties is offered for sale. Or maybe they could show a running list of events for bookmarked kitties -- change in ownership, had offspring, etc. Kind of like the kitties are posting to Facebook.

      I'll go out on a limb and guess that the current "bios" are a placeholder for future user-generated content. Clearly people want to write about their kitties and are trying to cram things into the name field, which isn't ideal. If would be great if people could write their own kitty's bio and then people could reply to it. Or post comments/replies about whole collections of kitties. I love browsing and wish I had a way to complement people on individual kitties or whole collections.

      retailnoodles , 30 December 2017 23:11

  773. This is why crypto kitties is broken...

    gihn17 , 30 December 2017 20:41

      If you put in double gas it shouldn't have failed.

      1. Did you get a warning in metamask when you tried to purchase the cat?
      2. Was the gas limit set to something like 7535729 (7 million or higher)?

      EDIT: I've done over 100+ buys and 250+ sells on CK and rarely if ever have problems. The only times I have problems if when I forget a cat is still resting when I try to force breed it through the direct contract.

      weareallfungi , 30 December 2017 21:04

      It failed (most likely) because you chose one of the cheapest cats. Since a lot of people are doing that, there is a high chance that the transaction fails. If you show me the failed tx I send you a kittie.

      artiscience , 30 December 2017 23:06

      WiseGrub , 31 December 2017 12:33

  774. So what do you do after you've ran out of ether to breed/buy/sire?

    kenoshiro , 31 December 2017 00:05

      Yes you need to actively try to sell them. I breed about 20 (+/- 5) cats a day and I list about 15 of them up for auction ASAP, the majority sell for around breeding value (0.02 to 0.008) so they effectively pay for themselves (0 net gain/loss). Then I get 1 or 2 cats out of the 20 that are actually worth more and post them up. Although the ones that are usually worth more take longer to sell, but there are people buying them out there. Then I normally keep around 2-4 to add to my collection for future purposes. I also try to find deals, I bought a Gen2 Elk for 0.07 and flipped it for 0.16. I also bought Gen 2 Dali for 0.04 and the next swift Gen 2 Dali is listed for 0.5, so I figure I can flip it for like 0.25 or so. I also sired out a Gen2 Elk 3 times so far for 0.075 each time. Yes it was a nice cat, but I needed some funds to fuel my most likely overly active breeding.

      I started at the peak of the game, made some mistakes and then got back on my feet. I currently have 300 cats (and some rare cats that I am holding as an investment). Everyday I typically add more cats to my collection while staying around break even. If my rare cats sold I would be up a lot

      weareallfungi , 31 December 2017 00:23

      Personally I think I'm going to wait a bit and see if breeding fees go down. I like the kitties I bought and don't want to sell them. I'd like to breed them, but am worried about the fees being more than I could get by selling the offspring. I'd like to buy a few more, but keep going back and forth in my mind, especially about whether to splurge for a 0 generation kitty.

      retailnoodles , 31 December 2017 01:11

      Go to ebay. Com and sell your kittie at 10x value to a user who has not yet enough affinity to buy the kittie on the marketplace and is therefore willing to pay more. Sell $ and buy new Ether. Repeat that and don't forget about paying your income taxes minus your loss of investment due to worthless cats.

      artiscience , 31 December 2017 03:54

      I do everything I should have done before my ETH ran out: I learn about Kitty genetics, Fancies, etc. I build tools.

      WeAllMagic , 31 December 2017 01:55

      I have 2 kitties sitting there doing nothing because I don't have enough Ether to breed them and even if I did the baby prob wouldn't be worth the breeding cost lol

      dragondoot , 31 December 2017 09:01

  775. Selling kitties costs more than what they sell for?

    Ramon_Robben , 31 December 2017 01:18

      What gas limit and gas price are you entering? If you use the suggested gas limit (given that it is correct, it should be between 21,000 and 250,000) and enter the recommended gas price (see https://ethgasstation.info/) it shouldn't cost you more that $0.20 generally speaking.

      If metamask suggests an abnormal gas limit, you need to reject the transaction, refresh the page and try again.

      DERPYBASTARD , 31 December 2017 01:24

    BeaverCams , 31 December 2017 03:53

      You’re right, waste the competition’s breeding capacity if you think it should be worth more. That’s basically how the free market should work :-)

      WeAllMagic , 31 December 2017 05:09

      i sired an old lace tongue for 0.07

      spokesz , 31 December 2017 06:28

      I sired an Gen2 Elk 5 times for around 0.075 each. Siring is not dead if you have something worth siring.

  777. Is there a way to send Kitties to someone else for free?

    Gilhuly , 31 December 2017 02:57

      You can do it real cheap by gifting it and using a 0.5 gas price. Might not go through for a long time and you won’t be able to do anything else while you wait. But it will cost less than a gumball.

      AFAIK you only have to pay the Tx Cost/Fee, which was like .48 cents when I did it. Someone can correct me if I'm wrong.

      Icanasksomething , 31 December 2017 03:33

      Yeah it costs $1 each cat. Was just trying to get rid of them but after paying the fee for CoinBase and then to transfer it to the app and then to pay it becomes like $2 a cat with 9 days of waiting for Coinbase.

      Is it a valid mating pair and is siring permitted are the two things it checks.

      jus341 , 30 December 2017 19:59

      Are you able to get a result other than "false" for any pairs of kitties? I just tried some random other pairs and it said false for all of them.

      I have only bred once but checked several times and the kitties I can breed with ( non siblings or parents ) where very limited all times but all my kitties came from different sourses. Some day might be hard to find a non relitive match ( no Royal family cats LOL ) Good luck finding a mate.....mate hehe

      Currently yes, next week don't know. I don't think the current game mechanics would allow enough player edge to overcome the house edge for consistent positive expected gain. Unless the game designer constantly study and try out new mechanics / or cut some of their earning back to players, and fine-tune it to become a serious long lasting game.

      This is the first popular crypto-collectable game, it is shame to see it go down because of that.

      rocketleaguebr0 , 30 December 2017 22:03

      Yes you can still make money, you need to do some homework on the gene and how it works in breeding first before start buying. Even the cat looks shit and cheap it might have some good underlying gene.

      Currently, I made some eth by breeding Hotrod Elk Alien Combination

      You can go to Discord Gene Discussion channel for help and refer to Kittydex for gene. Refer to below and check the Kai portion: https://cryptokittydex.com/kitties/434020

      And dun set the price too high even it is very rare most new people now only buy 0.05 below most of the time unless it is extremely rare.

      And try to look out in Reddit or Discord to see when new cattributes are coming out and how to make them. New cattributes are the best way to make money.

      Nick0005 , 29 December 2017 19:04

      If the supply of kitties goes up(by lowering breeding costs), the rarity of traits goes down too, which means the price of cats goes down as well. Higher breeding fee encourages users to buy more cats rather than breed pointless cats with common traits that clog up the ethereum network. If the kitties remain scarce and hard to produce, more people will want to have rare kitties, which increases the demand and popularity of cryptokitties. Flooding the market with cheap and common kitties decreases kitties value, which I believe have already gone down enough.

      LaxBrother , 30 December 2017 01:33

      I just started and was shocked that breeding cost MORE then both my cats. I was hoping to muck around and breed some kitties but unless your going for the golden ticket rare kitty lotto it seems pointless.

  787. Sire fee question

    whoohw , 30 December 2017 08:32

      Add it to your siring price? The .008 fee is for birthing the kitten. After the cat is pregnant and the kitten is ready to be born, somebody has to call the function for the cat to give birth, which costs gas. The fee pays for the gas (probably plus a bit more) and incentivises someone to make sure the kitten is born promptly. It's actually very interesting because anybody can call the birthing function when the time is ready and collect the .008 fee. I'm not sure who does this, though.

      jus341 , 30 December 2017 09:43

      The person who starts a breeding pays the breeding fee. So when you put up your kitty for public siring, you don't pay 0.008 but the person who uses your cat does.

  789. What do you wish you would have known?

    jodiferous11 , 29 December 2017 17:59

      When I started (and that quite early in comparison to most players) I bought several cats for 3-5$. I didn´t pay attention to the generation since I didn´t really know anything about cooldown (fortunately at that time, the worst you could get was "slow", but sure, new players may fall for a catatonic one easily).

      Then I made the mistake to buy when Metamask had an issue with the gas limit. Now the UI will notificate you and ask you twice before a transaction is ordered. Back then (some days ago :) it only said that the transaction may fail and one should simply reload the page. Long story short: I think I paid around 150$ for a cat that wasn´t even at that time worth more than 9$.

      Also, like many, I didn´t pay attention to generation rarity. If I´d start from scratch and at these cheap prices, I´d definitely buy gen0, gen1 and gen2 as speculative investments and several gen4, gen5, gen6 for breeding fun.

      artiscience , 29 December 2017 18:29

      Gas prices!!! When the ETH network got slow, CK suggested raising the gas prices. I wanted my kitties, so I took the advice - not realizing every time I clicked the up arrow that I was spending dollars more per transaction.
      I did my math, if this trait is selling for this much then I should breed this + this, and sell those cats and make a profit. (at first, I also didn't understand breeding fees, so that skewed my math even more).
      Explain breeding fees better upfront, when I was a total noob, what I read was you buy 1-2 cats and either breed them or pay to hire a sire. I don't recall reading anywhere on day 1, that you had to pay, pay, and pay some more to actually breed the kitties you already paid for. The company objective was to have cats selling for $1 each, with the current breeding fees that is not even remotely possible without infinitely losing money. I had cats coming and going every day and assumed at that point my ETH was just tied up in my "inventory". Then after about a week, I truly got to understand the gas cost (and breeding fees). I then realized where all of my money went, to gas prices and CK fees. I took a final shot with the last of my ETH to buy 2 kitties with one of the newest rare genes - that almost overnight became "common". So the offspring of my new kitties were no longer worth pretty much anything. I now had cats up for sale or sire, that reached rock bottom - and I had to pay MORE gas just to get them out of the auction.

      One thing I STILL don't understand, and likely won't for a long time. The first 3 genes in the sequence still haven't been discovered/implemented. I'd like to know if I hodl my cats for 6 months, and then breed them together will they still be worthless or is there a chance these other genes could produce offspring that are greater than it's parents. Can I breed 2 of my old cats, and get lucky with a mutation of newer genes or will I always be stuck with totesbasic? Also, similiar situation, if I hodl my cats and then hire a sire in a couple months - how will my basic common cats breeding fair? Will I still be mostly stuck with common dominate genes, or will the sire be more likely to introduce updated/ newer genes. IE is it best for me to sell all of my cats now, and buy back in when the market improves or hodl until new genes are released, hire a sire with those genes, and hope I get lucky?

      To add to the last point, are current worthless cats truly worthless? With ascensions etc, could 2 very common traits now become valuable in the future if new genes are dependant on those now seemingly worthless genes.

      With my early lessons, here are a couple suggestions to fix these issues going forward.
      Most of the best fixes I can see is CK improving their infrastructure. There really is no reason to be paying gas multiple times for one transaction, in addition to breeding fees and "sales tax".
      To fix this my thoughts are to hold auctions on CK's internal site, you can list sales and sires with a consistent nominal fee for these transactions. Then ONCE and only ONCE, does the buyer pay for gas to transfer the cat over the ETH blockchain. I understand this process would reallllly slow down the CK website, but would drastically improve transactions being processed over the ETH blockchain - which would speed up transactions and keep gas prices down.

      I mentioned this in another thread, but lower breeding fees and raise the sales tax to compensate. This would open the game to more people, with more people the dynamic of supply and demand would change. Yes, we'd probably still be flooded with worthless cats, however, the rare breeds etc that sold well above the average market would take a small hit with a higher tax to compensate for the birthing fees CK pays out. The one caveat to this is implementing a sink that devs have already spoken of to eliminate the surplus of worthless cats.

      Since I'm here sharing ideas, I'll add this here since I was going to create a new thread for it. But I would like to see litters of kittens. CK could set the birthing fee at 3x current = .024 ETH and by RNG your breeding has a chance of having 2-5 kittens. Obviously, this would need to be skewed in favor of 2 kittens so CK wasn't losing money on birthing contracts. I'm thinking the math would go like 2 kittens=40% chance, 3 kittens 30%, 4 kittens 20%, 5 kittens 10% chance. As an added bonus to this method, add a pick of the litter bonus. Pick of the litter means breeding in this fashion kittens should have a higher chance of taking on more valuable recessive genes and a much higher chance of mutation. So if you have a litter of 4 cats, at least one should see a good ascension. For a fair drawback, your mother cat should have their cooldown time increased 3x (same as the breeding fee) of their current cooldown (without counting each cat against the lifelong cooldown increase).

      Last shameless self-plug, if you like any of my ideas and would like to donate so I can keep playing... You can send ETH or kitties to:

      Or buy or sire one of my kitties : https://www.cryptokitties.co/my-kitties/0x5b2dd3214df0e4a892496aa4f771043b0cc397ea

      WeAllMagic , 29 December 2017 20:43

      Definitely wish I understood better what "rarity" really means over time - I invested too heavily in sandalwood, excited because it was very rarely represented... not understanding that it's not as valuable as I thought because most of the representation is in low gens. Also, while i knew breeding and listing prices existed, I still didn't have a good concept of just HOW MUCH of my eth those would eat up - in retrospect, I wish I had saved half my initial investment for breeding and listing over time. At this point I just have to sit and hope someone breeds/buys so I can get enough eth for more listings...

And most people currently playing probably got here by way of cryptocurrency investing, so they're thinking in terms of investment value. But assuming the game hits the mainstream, most players won't be thinking in those terms. I randomly came across this person (not me) collecting cerulians. That's why I don't understand the people on here talking about "junk/trash/worthless" kitties. One man's trash is another man's treasure, you know? If millions of people start playing, at least one of them will want your "worthless" cat for their collection.

      That seems to be a 9th cattribute type. There are two more undiscovered cattribute types, what will they be? One of them could be the cat bio, and the other one could be a pet? Accessories?

      DERPYBASTARD , 28 December 2017 16:17

      It's classed as "wild" (vs "color" or "eyes"), according to the code.

      SleepyHarry , 28 December 2017 18:51

  802. What do you think is next after CryptoKitties?

    imgarrett , 29 December 2017 03:49

      cryptopets definitely- has similarities to cryptokitties and etheremon, also 20% of their proceeds goto animals. its gonna be epique

      spb9 , 29 December 2017 08:46

      I´m quite sure about Crypto TCGs. Unsure if Nova Blitz is what we are going to look at, but this kind of stuff is certainly going to lift off. I also believe a Crypto-Pokémon copycat will be in the race. I don´t think it is Etheremon, though, which imho looks like a CK ripoff to take profits from the hype. I also believe CK could develop towards this direction.

      artiscience , 29 December 2017 04:13

      I'm collecting CryptoCopycats over at the Awesome CryptoKitties (& CryptoCopycats) page. So far upcoming copycats on the blockchain include:

      • CryptoPuppies (Yes, Cute Little Cartoon Dogs)
      • CryptoMonsters
      • CryptoFighthers
      • CryptoDrome (CryptoHorses)
      • CryptoPets (incl. Unicorns, Galapos Turtles, ...)
      • and some more incl. CryptoTulips :-).

      geraldbauer , 29 December 2017 13:51

      I'm interested too.

      I discovered CK only a week ago and the best days seemed already finished.

      How did you discover CK earlier? Was it discussed somewhere, for example, here in reddit?

      Hatchan3 , 29 December 2017 17:49

      Fishbank.io looks interesting - breed and fight fishes PvP. What's interesting and may give it longevity and popularity is that it's being developed by a big and well established gamification company ChatRobotic who already have a few million members..

      On a tangent is cryptozombies.io, which isn't a game, but a free step by step online coding tutorial to build your own cryptokitties-like ethereum DApp ..but with zombies.

      It's free so far, but I haven't completed the lessons yet, so I don't know what their end-game is..

      redqlac , 28 December 2017 18:54

      I purchased 2 kitties today, but I'm not able to get them to breed. For some reason the transaction doesn't seem to be going through. :(

      Congrats on your kitties though!

      kurohoshi , 28 December 2017 21:10

      Congrats fella! I don't have one yet :/ How are you doing??

      grimdiam , 29 December 2017 05:15

      Hello, fello n00b! I was up until 2 AM a couple nights ago, because I was determined to buy a couple kitties and get them to breed before I went to sleep. Then woke up early to see my new kitty! Yeah, everything seems a bit beta-ish and it could be more n00b-friendly. But I'm enjoying this greatly.

      retailnoodles , 28 December 2017 20:14

      Welcome and congrats on your new kitties :)

  805. CryptoKitty Image Generation

    cuumsh , 28 December 2017 23:57

      It's front end, meaning somewhat centralized. The kitties you own and all the contracts you pay for with eth are all decentralised. It'd be extremely expensive to store and generate the art in the block chain, if it was done that way then the entire app would be open source as well which the devs don't want (they're a for-profit company, after all).

      rocketleaguebr0 , 29 December 2017 03:43

      Start with the image url - https://storage.googleapis.com/ck-kitty-image/0x06012c8cf97bead5deae237070f9587f8e7a266d/423007.svg

      423007.svg is the id of the kitty 0x06012c8cf97bead5deae237070f9587f8e7a266d is the ethereum address for CryptoKittiesCore

      The images are svg which are vector files. I guess they are generate when the kitty is generated. Using the cryptoKittiesCore ethereum address makes me think they plan to allow multiple ethereum addresses in the future.

      There could be some gene code that can be deduced from the svg file. Easy enough to edit a svg in a text editor and play around.

  806. Help Me Understand

    reduellc , 29 December 2017 01:04

      Well...the way the elk came about is a little bit complicated. I've written a bunch of articles about cryptokitty genetics here (https://cryptokitties411.weebly.com/) and you'll have to understand four of them before it'll be clear how the elk happened.

      But here's the gist of it: to get an elk, you need an "i" in that particular position in the genome (where the red dot is). To get an "i" there, you need:

      1) A LOT OF LUCK (or ether)

      2) a parent (preferably both) with an "i" somewhere in that four-character Wild section. The more "i"s you have and the closer they are to that end position, the better your odds.

      3) if you don't have a parent with an "i", you can use a parent with a "3" and a parent with a "4" (in the Wild section)(the more 3's and 4's, the better). Hopefully they'll pass forward their "3" and "4" genes and hopefully they'll mutate. If that happens, you'll get an elk.


      jodiferous11 , 29 December 2017 01:39

      From what I can gather, it is timegated and just randomly happens at a certain kitty number(given the right parents).

      It seems that every so often new traits just "come out" and people "accidentally" create something. I don't think the devs would leave it up to random chance, until proven otherwise, I strongly believe every few days or every week a few new things will be discovered through complete accident by random people.

      Look at the "ELK", it was from brand new Gen 0s that had traits that were already in the game and bred before, but never yielded an ELK. It happens on many other things too. Sometimes the Gen 0s have a new trait, like ragdoll and others.

      TruthForce , 29 December 2017 01:59

  807. Sandalwood undervalued?

    airaani , 29 December 2017 01:51

      I don´t think Sandalwood is overvalued, rather the opposite. To a certain extent it´s really hard to say, because we don´t see what is yet to come from future gen0, but just take this comparison:

      There are around 9000 Sandalwood kitties right now and more than three times that many Cloudwhites. However, if you search for gen:1 cloudwhites you will only find 106 with only 21 of those for sale. There are, however, more than 1100 Sandalwood kitties, 183 of these for sale. The reason for that is, that there are around 70 Sandalwood gen0 Kitties, but 0 Cloudwhite gen0. That may change in the future, but maybe doesn´t. If I´d see a gen0 cloudwhite, I´d immediately buy it.

      That´s just to say: it´s not about the current state of scarcity, it´s about the long term scarcity trend for specific generations.

      artiscience , 29 December 2017 02:02

  808. Okay so I just bought an elk with half of the eth I have right now, and I need help knowing which kitty I breed it with will result in another elk

  809. Tips for unlocking genes

    reduellc , 29 December 2017 05:47

      Scan all Gen 0 kitties that come out and look in their genome until you find something that hasn't been seen in other kitties before that. Then breed that cat. That is how it is done.

      weareallfungi , 29 December 2017 17:33

  810. CryptoKitties noob!

    grimdiam , 29 December 2017 05:02

      The point is that a free kittie wouldn't help you in any way. You need ETH to interact (breed, gift, sell). Also, if there were free kitties, it would kind of devaluate existing kittens. Currently you can get cheap kitties at around 2-3 $. That's cheaper than breeding (around 5-6 $). The main point of the game is educate people about cryptocurrencies.

      Btw. Kittie begging is not allowed on this subreddit.

      artiscience , 29 December 2017 11:07

      Thank you a lot for the comment, really helpful!!! So is necessary ETH for all in the game!! Good to know hehe I will try to buy cheap kittie!

      grimdiam , 29 December 2017 13:39

  811. How to value my kitties?

    3BlackDiamond , 27 September 2018 15:02

      At the current price level I think one can´t really advise breeding for profit. You can do that, I personally just find it stressful.

      I created a profile apart from my general collection just to breed rare cattributes, because you need to stay focussed on price development and constantly evaluate the value of your cats to not get left behind. In short: you need to add value by providing liquidity to buyers interest in a constantly rushing market - and that can be stressful.

      I personally think that the best approach you can currently do is buying kitties that you really like or have some rare aspects, i.e. lucky ID numbers. I still breed, but think it´s much more risky at the current price levels.

  813. Gen 0 Question

    reduellc , 29 December 2017 01:31

      New genes in terms of "have never been in the game"? Then no.

      artiscience , 29 December 2017 01:57

      Neighboring genes can mutate, so potentially. I wouldn't bet on it, though, unless you're familiar with the genome.

      Plus, the mutated genes may not even do anything for a while, so by the time they're expressed, they may be in lots of cats already.

      logan0055 , 28 December 2017 08:40

      It would be interesting if it did a coin flip and returned the kitty on success. I'm guessing you could see how many times it survived and that could make the kitty more valuable.

      You simply sell uninteresting or overpriced kitties atm. Depending on the kittie you can make profits, but there is no automatism. Not everyone can print money - I guess you understand that this isn't sustainable model.

      Is there a way to filter by multiple genes? For example, the second block of 4-genes below is '8888'.


      If I click on the last '8' it takes me to this:


      ..showing all kats that have that last gene [#40] as 8. But is there a way to filter results by all 4 numbers (8888 in this case)?

      ekwenzu , 28 December 2017 00:27

  822. Problem-difficult to find my siring kitty

    CKJU , 28 December 2017 03:09

      You pretty much answered your own question - to find it you have to look for it. You have to give it a reason to be at the top of people's searches. Most people search Sires by 'Cheapest first' since they don't care much about your cooldown period. So if you want to be on that first page - make sure your asking price is in range. If it has a desirable trait people may look for, search cheapest by that trait and then decide on the price accordingly. The lowest Sire price is often less than 0.001 ETH and to compete with those you have to put you Lowest Price as 0 making breeding higher Gens for profit difficult unless you have a new fancy or a kick-ass trait. I see looking at gen:10 cooldown:plodding the cheapest sires are all stuck at 0.001 for the first 3 pages so nobody is using them and unless your kittie is visibly better than anything on those 3 pages you might as well not even bother. Or put lowest price as 0 and you should go straight to the #1 spot once under 0.001. Either way - good luck!

      Evil_Landlord , 28 December 2017 02:28

      Very true. I'm guessing these will go up in value over time as well. All depending on what ETH does as well. Do you think you could sell your kitties as a job lot?

  825. There's a lot of trait combinations I'd like to try, but can't do so without going broke

    izzulaizad95 , 27 December 2017 11:58

      Well royalblue and royalpurple most likely has been done. Pretty sure I did that myself. As for daffodil and bloodred someone must have tried it since the post the other day. Also a Body type (chartreux) + a pattern type (hotrod) will not yield anything new as traits come from like traits (i.e. Henna (pattern type) + tigerpunk (pattern type) = hotrod (pattern type)).

      Weird combos are already being tried everyday. In addition, that is not exactly how new traits are made. Most new traits are released as recessive traits in Gen 0's and then new mutations are brought about from that new trait with a pre-existing traits. For examples, Serpent was a recessive trait that was introduced into Gen0's and Alien is a mutation of Googly induced by the Serpent gene. (similar to how jaguar induced the new Henna mutation from the new trait Amur, and how tigerpunk induced the new mutation Hotrod from the new mutation Henna).

      Most if not all of these weird combos have been done. We are just in waiting games of when the Devs want to release a new trait, which will then spark other new traits. If a trait came from pre-exiting traits, it would have been discovered already.

      I don't think that the high breeding cost is a problem. Actually I think it is good to keep the cat population growth in place atm. However, I believe it could be used to create incentives for players: imagine if 2$ of the breeding cost would be assigned to a ca(t)sh-pool and reassigned after 20.000 new born cats to the owner (not the breeder). This would a) keep breeding cost at a decent level, b) give breeders a perspective of risk revenue and c) lead to a market squeeze since breeders won't sell of quickly.

  829. New To CryptoKitties - This is my first breed... Is this good or rare? Hold or sell?

    Th3Ent1ty , 27 December 2017 06:21

      I am a little biased but I think my search page can give you an idea of the rarity of cattributes/sell price.... in addition to some of the stuff on the sidebar.


      mhazoldt , 27 December 2017 07:55


      This will give you an idea of what “cattributes” there are and how rare or common they are at the moment. You can then search the sale/siring marketplace, filtering on certain cattributes to see what others are charging, taking into consideration the age and generation of your kitty.

  830. Unidentified Recessive Gene Finder

    54973742562690104903 , 27 December 2017 02:45

      People are already doing that. Scanning every new Gen0 and searching its binary against their spreadsheet.

      weareallfungi , 27 December 2017 03:04

      Yeah, I have that tool. It also does a lot more. I'm sharing with people who are interested ... Let me know.

  831. Dominant / Recessive genes

    jodiferous11 , 26 December 2017 20:17

      Rotation begins with R3-R2 pair (otherwise R3 could never make to D). So there's 25% probability that R3 and R2 are swapped, 25% that R2 and R1 are swapped and 25% that R1 and D are swapped. It would be wrong to take 25% probability for R1 to switch into dominant, as there's 25% chance that R1 gets swapped with R2 before that.

      So chances to land into D are (for one parent):

      R3 25% * 25% * 25% = 1.5625%

      R2 75% * 25% * 25% = 4.6875%

      R1 75% * 25% = 18.75%

      D 75%

      In your example:

      75.8% calicool

      18.8% luckystripe

      3.1% totesbasic

      2.3% spock

      OOOOHHHHH! I see where I went wrong. I stand corrected.

      Thank you for correcting my math. I will fix my post.

      Will it have the private key to that kitty inside?

      Small Update - https://i.imgur.com/XTlLaRq.jpg

      Spent the day fixing bugs and issues, now the sides are a lot more clean, and the tail comes out of the back of the toy rather than the side. Now I just need to make a preview generator and I can put wave 1 up for download.
