Distributed “Tic Tac Toe”: Playing with the Blockchain consensus​

February 22, 2018

In this 2-day course we will design the flow of a Blockchain powered “Tic Tac Toe” game where, regulated by the Blockchain Consensus System, users can play one against the other, one Blockchain transaction at a time. While having fun, you will gain an understanding that Blockchain is more than a “distributed ledger”; you will also learn about the difference between a “Smart Contract” and a “Smart Transaction”, how the Blockchain Consensus works, and what it can be used for.

After this course, each participant should have acquired the conceptual notions to design systems that are able to solve any decentralised and distributed process using Blockchain as a parameterised communication channel between parties.
