The Blockchain Game

The Blockchain Game is a hands-on exercise that explains blockchain's core principals and serves as a launching pad for discussion of blockchain's real-world applications.

Participants record the grade and course information and then "build the block" by calculating a unique identifier (aka a hash) to secure the grade ledger, and miners get rewarded for their work. As the game is played, the audience learns about hashes, private keys, and what uses are appropriate for a blockchain ledger.
