http://cryptocats.thetwentysix.io/ To help you peel back the magic of the blockchain and look beneath the surface, three blockchain entrepreneurs will be exclusively demoing a full stack Ethereum use-case called the CryptoCats.
On December 19th, you’ll get to meet the cute and collectible 8-bit cats that live on the Ethereum blockchain. Gendry Morales, Nas Munawar, and Jochy Reyes, the team behind the CryptoCats, the Melbourne-born blockchain startup will be presenting at ACMI X as part of an Academy Xi hosted event.

  5. 5. Digital collectible 8bit cat. Each cat has a unique number which correlates to the array in the contract Each cat is a token and the token ownership is stored on the Ethereum Network. We are exploring non- fungible tokens, where each has different attributes. A composite image with all the cats in a release is hashed (SHA-256) and is tied to the contract.

  12. 12. cryptocats26 There's hardly anything interesting you can do on Mobile yet UX/UI: Metamask helps but it has�glitches �and requires a bit of set-up Ethereum is slow. It's early days�for error handling from contract responses

  21. 21. cryptocats26 TEST NET Decentralised Ethereum environment challenges Remix browser IDE and Infura API are useful
  22. 22. cryptocats26 THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE MAIN NET Set aside time for blockchain sync to complete Safekeep keys used for deployment wallet Contract deployed on main network is permanent
