The New Year is in full swing, and CryptoKitties is celebrating it in style. While it worked in collaboration with Coindesk in creating furry avatars for its top 10 influencers list, it’s made two of them into full-fledged NFTs.
While designing this series of avatars, it decided to turn two of them into limited edition collectibles. And rather than sell them on the market like nay NFT, CryptoKitties announced that proceeds will be donated to charity.
The two influencers lucky enough to make the change from avatar to full on NFT were:
Changpeng Zhao – Founder of Binance & Jeremy Allaire – Founder of Circle
Players will be able to take a chance at winning one of these influencer kitties by estimating its worth. This ‘Silent Auction’ system will run until 2pm (PST) on January 4th, with winners being decided on January 7th.
Where there are only seven of each, it’s a very exclusive auction, find out more here.
