CryptoCelebrities Adapts the Ethereum Blockchain to Trade in People

Cryptocurrency is riding a wave of both popularity and economic value (though lately, that wave has felt like more of a steady drop for investors), and CryptoCelebrities is a game that plays off of the technology's recent newsmaking. Rather than trading in cash, though, the system adopts the Ethereum blockchain and repurposes it to create currency representing celebrities.

In the CryptoCelebrities game, celebrities like Brad Pitt, Snoop Dogg, Bruno Mars, Donald Trump, and hundreds of others are recreated as unique digital tokens. Each celebrity is represented once and only once on the blockchain, and they're assigned a value based on how often people exchange them. There's no bidding involved in the game; any player can buy a celebrity from another player at any time, but that purchase automatically charges a set percentage more than the original player paid.
