Why Ruthless Kitty?

“Cats” is one of the most-searched-for terms on the Internet, and YouTube videos starring felines account for more than 26 billion views, making them the single most popular category on the site.

There is a challenge within Web3 / blockchain space to develop the first cat-themed project capable of reaching a $1B USD market-cap.  The information contained within is an analysis of the broader macro market, outlining key attributes required to become the highest market-cap cat-themed project. The thesis is that “Ruthless Kitty” embodies all of the necessary attributes to become a $1B market-cap cat project.

The methods involved in this analysis include:

  • Reverse engineering top funded project keys to success, across all markets
  • Isolate and understand “crowdfunding” contributor behavior data
  • Identify cultural trends contributing to project success
  • Understand psychological motivators behind success
 
The objectives of this analysis include:
 
  • Create perfectly optimized project
  • Leverage highest liquidity platforms for multi-phased project launch

Key Demographic Data

At it’s core, a blockchain game project launch is essentially a crowd-funded endeavor, and the larger dataset from crowd-funding platforms gives us valuable insight into what resonates with backers.

Due to the relative anonymity, relative nascency and insufficient self-reporting within the web3/blockchain space, we will analyze more readily available data sourced from traditional, more mature and data-rich crowd-funding platforms (i.e. Kickstarter, Indiegogo) in order to establish a baseline foundation for our thesis. Moreover, we examine crowd-funded projects from traditional Web 2.0 campaigns in order to gauge authentic interest, and eliminate noise and statistical anomalies attributable to trading and speculation. At it’s core, a blockchain game project launch is essentially a crowd-funded endeavor, and the larger dataset from crowd-funding platforms gives us valuable insight into what resonates with backers.

Category Performance

Metrics include funding success rates, amount pledged, and the performance of successfully and unsuccessfully crowd funded projects. Across 15 categories, “Gaming” generated the highest revenue pledged (measured in Billions $USD below), and has the highest successful funding rate.

The gaming category represents over 31% of successful crowd-funded projects, across 15 distinct categories. Gaming is the leader in successful campaigns, total dollars raised, and highest value per backer.

Top Crowd-Funded Game

We initially looked to identify the most successful game project crowd-funding launch, with the assumption the game would be a digital / video game. We discovered a couple of points of interest; (1) Video games perform better than non-digital games, and (2) The most successful crowd-funded game in terms of capital above stated goal raised, number of backers, and on-going revenue is not a video game, but rather a cat-themed card game. Exploding Kittens is the most successful crowd-funded project and it is a card game. Video games statistically perform better than card games in amount pledged and number of backers, however, Exploding Kittens tapped into the viral cat-themed internet sensation. Despite being a card game, Exploding Kittens isn’t only the most-backed project, it’s also the most-funded Games project ever, raising $87,826% over its pledge goal amount. This cat-game makes it the third-most-funded project in crowd-funding history.
