The Blockchain Game
"The Blockchain Game" is a hands-on exercise that explains blockchain's core principals, and serves as launching pad for discussion of blockchain's real-world applications. In the Blockchain Game students act as nodes and miners on a blockchain network for storing student grades for at a university. 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 hashs, private keys, and what uses are appropriate for a blockchain ledger.
