Someone paid $170,000 for the most expensive CryptoKitty ever

Blockchain-based game CryptoKitties has seen the highest trade volume since February over the past 24 hours, and it has only one cute little kitten to thank for it.

Someone purchased Dragon, a CryptoKitty, for 600 ETH ($170,000 approximately) on Tuesday, making her the most expensive kitty to be ever traded in the history of the game.

Dragon broke the record of Founder Cat #18, which sold for 253 ETH ($110,000 at the time of sale) in December last year.

On primary inspection, Dragon looks like your average CryptoKitty. She’s got average looks and average attributes (called “Cattributes”). Remarkably, she’s a ninth generation kitty – earlier generations tend to be more expensive. Overall, she doesn’t fit the stereotype of what an expensive CryptoKitty should look like.
