 What are CryptoKitties?

CryptoKitties is the name of an Ethereum-based game that lets you buy and sell digital cats. They function in a similar way to physical cats–they have unique appearances and are bred with each other to create new and even more unique kittens.

Crash Course. Over the last year or so DAPPs aka Decentralised Applications have slowly gained a lot of steam.

As you are probably aware, a DAPP is not owned by any central organization and it represents a much-needed paradigm shift in an increasingly centralized world.

However, for DAPPs to get the proper mainstream exposure they deserve, one of them had to break through and make it big. (Yes technically speaking bitcoin is a DAPP as well, but we are not talking about store-of-value here). Sure, there have been several DAPPs before which got some exposure but something had to make it big and capture the public’s imagination.
