The CryptoKitties #1 Fan contest winner is sharing his collection of Kitties with the community — and you can take part!
In August, we ran a contest asking who our #1 Fan was — and now that fan is giving his prize back as part of a White Elephant Christmas contest.
And the winner was…ADHD!
We had some amazing entries to our #1 Fan Contest. We even got some pretty incredible fan art!
But the winner was easy to choose. @ADHDKitties sent us a touching missive in six parts:
1/6 I don’t believe I am Cryptokitties #1 Fan, as there a lot of very dedicated community members that very much love @CryptoKitties as well. But this is a chance for me to share my story. I grew up in a very poor family, and around not so great group of delinquents i called
2/6 “friends”. Upon certain actions last year around this time, I was dealing with a major identity crisis. I grew up into a life where I believe the actions of my friends were right based off of the fact that I grew up with them and upheld the principle of loyalty.
3/6 Yet, I knew what they were doing was wrong and I started distancing myself from them. But doing so, I started wondering who I was. And then I found Cryptokitties. I was surrounded by some of the smartest and not to mention most talented people, I have ever met.
4/6 I realized that I want to be like my new friends, I wanted to grow in this direction. I started saving up any money I can make doing little jobs for people and investing what I could whenever I could into making more cats and hanging out with the community.
5/6 I then realized how educated most of the community was and that inspired me to go back to school this upcoming fall semester. I know I’m not very good at school, but a few members of the community have reached out to me and offered me help
6/6 anytime I am lost with my assignments or when I don’t understand something. TL;DR: My main love for @CryptoKitties stems from the awesome community it brings forth and helped me figure out the person I wanted to be.
Good luck getting through that with dry eyes!
After we gave, ADHD gave back
