Notes
  • CryptoKitties is a blockchain-based game that uses Ethereum to transact the buying, selling and breeding of virtual cats. The breeding portion includes DNA-like info such as parents, characteristics and 'mew-tations'. Like real cats, CryptoKitties are non-fungible, ie your Siamese is not directly exchangable with the neighbour's Persian. Compare this to a fungible token like the US dollar where each note looks the same (except for the serial number), has the same value and is exchangable.
  • On the theme of pets, a local (property) developer is proposing the issue of a 'horse currency'. This might be an asset tokenisation of the developer's properties. Asset tokens are similar in function to shares but could be more liquid and flexible (regulatory oversight permitting). For example, renters can be rewarded with a step ladder system of tokens - the longer the rental, the more payments go towards asset tokens and asset ownership. Tokenisation is covered in a forthcoming talk, see the listings below.
