Cryptokitties Breeders Rules
Terminology for breeders of Cryptokitties:
- Parents – Mummy Kitty and Daddy Kitty
- Siblings – offspring having one or both parents in common
- Sire / Siring – being Daddy to more kitties
- Matron – being Mummy to more kitties
- Cooldown – period during which the Kitty cannot do any more breeding
Breeding Rules for Crypto Kitties
- 2 Kitties can breed, except with their siblings or parents
- Kitties must also be either owned by the same user, or one user offers a Kitty siring to another user.
- If you have 2 Kitties that fits this condition, you can use one as sire (father) and the other as matron (mother).
- Kitties do not have fixed genders.
- After breeding, the assigned matron will be pregnant and under cooldown, the father will also be under cooldown.
- Cooldown stands for the period of time the kitty cannot perform any breeding actions, a Kitty’s cooldown increases each time it breeds.
- After the matron cooldown is complete, it can give birth, and engage in breeding again right away.
- As kitties breed their cooldowns increase.
Breeding With Kittens You Don’t Own
In this case you provide the matron, and have a permissioned sire. There are 2 practical cases this can happen:
- The owner of a Kitten can allow siring to another ethereum address.
- The owner of another Kitten can submit their Kitten into a siring clock auction, and the bidder must supply their matron.
