Development Update The WAX Explorer and beta WAX Blockchain are live, and an update on the WAX Blockchain release

CryptoKitties are now tradable on OPSkins!

Dec 21, 2017

Today, the global ETH blockchain-based gaming phenomenon meets the skins trading market. That’s right — CryptoKitties can be purchased and sold on OPSkins. Browse for your favorite kitty here.

Why fulfill your virtual cat addiction on OPSkins rather than CryptoKitties? Because you can pay with WAX Tokens, Bitcoin, USD, Euros, and dozens of other fiat payment methods on OPSkins — not just ETH. CryptoKitties on OPSkins also do not trade using the ETH blockchain, so you’ll buy and sell your kitties much faster, without any frustratingly slow ETH network delays due to network congestion. We’ll also be adding gamification features.

CryptoKitties utilize Ethereum’s new ERC-721 protocol, which provides for more personalization than the popular ERC-20 standard most commonly used in token crowdsales.

While visually different from most items you’ll see on OPSkins, CryptoKitties have many similarities to the in-game digital items and skins that OPSkins has become the world’s #1 marketplace for trading. CryptoKitties and in-game skins are both collectible digital items, totally unique from other variations of the item (especially in the case of CS:GO items where there can be hundreds of unique versions of a single skin), and incredibly popular. And when the WAX Platform is developed in 2018, both CryptoKitties and in-game skins will trade on the blockchain.

“Everyone is talking about CryptoKitties, and not just because they are cute,” said William Quigley, CEO of WAX and CEO of OPSkins. “The concept of a virtual collectible item on the blockchain adds a fresh value proposition to the crypto world and we see OPSkins and WAX as a key player in developing what we call the ‘Crypto Collectibles’ space.”

With the integration of CryptoKitties onto the OPSkins platform, WAX tokens gain additional utility and more players are incentivized to join the ecosystem. OPSkins boasts over two million transactions on its platform, with 200,000 new users added each month. WAX allows anyone to create a virtual goods marketplace, onboarding millions of gamers to the growing cryptocurrency space. Its platform is uniquely designed to serve the 400 million gamers who already collect, buy, and sell virtual items.
