The infamous CryptoKitties – the popular blockchain-based cat breeding game that brought blockchain tech into the mainstream for many – will launch a brand new version of its app for HTC mobile devices.
The partnership was announced on Tuesday when it was revealed that the app would initially be available on the U12+ smartphone and the upcoming HTC Exodus.
The HTC site describes the game as: “CryptoKitties is a game centred around breakable, collectible, and oh-so-adorable creatures we call CryptoKitties! It is one world’s biggest game to be built on blockchain technology – the same breakthrough that makes things like Bitcoin and Ethereum possible. Bitcoin and ether are cryptocurrencies but CryptoKitties are cryptocollectibles.
“For the first time, CryptoKitties is exclusive to HTC,” the company adds. “Learn why the future is meow – anytime, anywhere.”
HTC this week confirmed its first blockchain smartphone, The Exodus, created “to expand the blockchain ecosystem by creating the world’s first phone dedicated to decentralised applications and security with the release of the HTC Exodus we can now make this a reality.”
CryptoKitties and other associated third party apps will launch on the HTC device by the end of the year.
