After Baidu’s financial blockchain lab released the blockchain pet Cryptodoggies (莱茨狗), Netease also launched a similar product “Lucky Cat (招财猫).” Now, Xiaomi seems to have to use the same form of blockchain layout. It is reported that Xiaomi’s blockchain product is called “Cryptorabbit (加密兔)” and is currently being tested, Chinese media iFeng is reporting. Xiaomi chose a rabbit since their mascot, “Mitu (米兔, meaning Rice Rabbit),” is a rabbit.

According to the “User Services Agreement,” Cryptorabbit is a digital pet service provided by Xiaomi based on the blockchain and feed on digital grain “rice grain (米粒)” in the game.

Crypto-collectibles show the potential of future gaming because, unlike traditional games, which focus on recreational entertainment, it is highly opportunistic and attracts players into the game. With blockchain technology, the platform guarantees that every pet is unique in the world, cannot be copied and cannot be destroyed.
