It was a peaceful, quiet and clear summer evening. Mama Meow and Papa Paw cuddled around a little Kitty Crib, admiring the newly minted egg that the Ethereum Blockchain had blessed them with. A digital kitten was about to be born and they already knew what they would call their furry bundle of joy – “Page” – a name to mark the exciting new chapter about to unfold in front of them.
The spotted egg shell first gave way to a small and curious purple ear. Shortly after, another ear made its way through. After just a few moments, Meow and Paw saw the shell eventually make way for a purring baby CryptoKitten with adorable purple cattributes. When all the hatching was done, everyone knew that this Kitty was going to be a different kind of non-fungible furrball. Page was a Fancy Cat!
All of Page’s siblings had arrived with the typical spots, stripes, smiles and the raised eyebrows you’d expect from a feline ERC 721. Some had thicccbrowz or crazy eyes, all determined by the characteristics of their parents and would later determine the uniqueness of their own kittens.
But this Kitty appeared quite differently. Page had a sword handy, along with a shield, and all kinds of fancy features never seen before in all the immutable generations that Meow and Paw could remember. Could all those exotic purple features have something to do with that magical purple eggplant? Satoshi only knows. One thing was absolutely certain, Page was fired up and ready for adventure.
Of the 4-billion combinations of Kitty traits, and mewtations, Page’s fancy purrsona could only be found in a few hundred places across the entire KittyVerse. Page craved to learn more about the almost 1 million CryptoKitties surfing the Ethereum Blockchain. Meow and Paw could sense that Page’s eagerness to be far more than a simple digital cat in a collectible online game.
While Page’s other Kitty friends and family were quite content with their catatonic lifestyle, Page yearned to learn more about the world and explore everything there is to see in the KittyVerse. There was adventure to be had out there!
And so, here begins the journey of Page to discover a CryptoUniverse full of new friends, new games and new quests. Stay tuned for the second part of Page’s Journey into the Blockchain Beyond!
