NFTs continue to be a growing trend. T-Mobile Accelerator Startup, Krikey, a gaming studio, has announced the launch of “SolarPups” on the Flow blockchain. “SolarPups” is a 3D, animated, interactive NFT game where fans can adopt, play, breed, collect and sell NFT puppies.  

“Inspired by CryptoKitties and virtual pet games of our childhood, this game innovates on the future of play," says Ketaki Shriram, chief technology officer, Krikey.  

By building on next-generation blockchain Flow – home to NFT properties like NBA Top Shot – Krikey is giving “SolarPups” the right foundation for consumer-scale growth and adoption. The SolarPups game is a good introduction for those new to web3. For those wanting to learn more about Web 3.0, License Global presented a webinar last month, “Everything You Need to Know About Web 3.0,” which can be streamed on demand here

"T-Mobile is always seeking to push the boundaries of 5G and expand adoption of 5G networks," says John Saw, executive vice president, advanced and emerging technologies, T-Mobile. "We are excited to support the SolarPups team as one of our current Accelerator cohort companies, working together with Qualcomm's Snapdragon Spaces platform to power the next wave of 5G innovation." 

In the first NFT mint, fans can adopt from a group of 1,500 NFT Shiba Inu puppies featuring traits including a Hawaiian shirt, Christmas sweater, sunglasses, tiaras, crowns and more. 

"I couldn't be more excited to see CryptoKitties inspiring new generations of NFT-based games and entertainment," says Dete Shirley, CryptoKitties co-founder and chief technology officer, Dapper Labs. "The 3D, interactive elements of SolarPups will offer players interesting new game dimensions to explore – all made possible by building on Flow." 

Dapper Labs has previously partnered with the National Football League (NFL) and the National Football League Players Association (NFLPA) to create exclusive digital video highlight NFTs for NFL fans. Last December, License Global reported Dapper Labs’ launch of Seussibles, collectible NFTs of Dr. Seuss characters. 

The “SolarPup” NFTs are available now at The playtime and breeding features will launch Aug. 22.
