Blockchain Based Game CryptoKitties To Join Ubisoft In Hackathon

The blockchain-based collectible game Cryptokitties will be present in the Blockchain Heroes hackathon organized by Ubisoft, the giant french gaming company. The hackathon will be held in the Ubisoft Strategic Innovation Lab, and it will gather several blockchain companies that are into the gaming side of the cryptosphere.
Ubisoft, based in France and with offices around the world, is one of the most important game developer companies in the world; having developed and published several important franchises such as Rayman, Assassin’s Creed and the adorable Rabbids, they are now interested in integrating blockchain to gaming and see the possibilities of this integration.
The founder of Cryptokitties, Benny Giang expressed his enthusiasm for this special collaboration with the French company by tweeting a drawing of a special RabbidsKitty , a fusion of a signature Cryptokitty and a rabbid from one of the games that Ubisoft has developed that will be awarded to the winners of this special event.

The Hackathon will be attended by several other companies that will arm multidisciplinary groups to examine the possibilities of blockchain gaming for the future. Among the possibilities mentioned on the hackathon website, it mentions that blockchain could affect the state of gaming as we know it. This alliance could also be good for the people at Cryptokitties, that are experiencing a drop in the number of daily deals on its platform.
Cryptokitties revolutionized the blockchain gaming industry by offering the first blockchain collectible game, and even creating a standard for unique tokens on the Ethereum platform, showing another application for blockchain different from cryptocurrencies, but nowadays, even with new money coming from investors and also new features added to the game, interest has started to dwindle.
Benny Giang mentioned in his tweet that this is the start of more interesting official crossovers, so we will be waiting to see what they will do to revitalize the crypto kitties universe. You can read the whole press release here.
