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 used the same form of blockchain layout. 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 feeds on digital “rice grain (米粒)” in the game.
