CryptoKitties contributes to 14% of Ethereum transactions

CryptoKitties, a game introduced to create awareness about crypto currencies is now contributing to about 14% of the transactions done in the Ethereum network.

The game, introduced in November 28, allows players to buy, sell and breed a huge array of DNA-unique cats. The world’s first block-chain based game looks quite simple. However, it has now gained huge popularity among crypto currency enthusiasts.

A player can purchase a Kitty to sell it later or breed with another Kitty, and create a new specimen.

The new Kitty can be listed in the marketplace for sale. The creators of the game release a Generation ‘0’ CryptoKitty once in 15 minutes. The starting price of a Generation ‘0’ CryptoKitty will be equal to the average price of last five CryptoKitties, plus 50%. A CryptoKitty can be purchased only using an Ether coin. According to Eth Gas Station, a website that records the percentage contribution of apps to the overall transactions in the Ethereum network, CryptoKitties accounted for nearly 14% of the transactions processed in the past 1,500 blocks.
