Cryptokitties’ Decline Resembles That of PokéMon Go

Sat Jun 09, 2018 1:41 pm

After peaking at its launch, CryptoKitties has been steadily losing its momentum, showing Non-Fungible Tokens (NFT) aren’t the new craze. Not too long ago, Pokémon Go suffered a similar fate.

All those who were involved in the crypto world six months ago can definitely remember the hype over CryptoKitties. The digital pets were unique, at the time, as their very own existence was also unique — no one could own the exact same kitty. The game allowed crypto kitty owners to breed their bundles of join and sell their offsprings.

Things have changed drastically for the digital kitties, though. Nowadays, no one really cares CryptoKitties exist, apart from hardcore fans — Igor Barinov, for example, purchased the cat number 127 at a cryptocurrency-themed art auction for $140,000.

According to Bloxy, CryptoKitties is barely registering 250 daily active users these days. Yesterday, June 8, the digital cats had only 244 pet owners logging in and playing around. That’s a drastic fall from its 9,750 users peak.
