Sean Han4 Hey PH! As Bitcoin rose to unprecedented levels, it caught my attention & curiosity. I wondered, how does bitcoin really work? As I went down the blockchain rabbit hole, I found that many resources rarely go beyond the “revolutionary”, “distributed” and “immutable” dialogue. Many talk about the what, but not so much the why and how. I resorted to reading technical papers and source code to uncover this black box. What I realized was bitcoin was just blockchain + transactions. This app will cover the transaction part of the equation. Hope you enjoy and find this app helpful!
Stephen M. Levinson15 It looks nice, but I'm having a really really hard time understanding this. I'm actually more confused. It doesn't explain how mining works - which is what I think I have the most time understanding.
Sean Han4 @stephenmarklevi Thanks for the feedback :) Maybe this would help? https://blockchaindemo.io
jeremy carson3 @seanhan i think a layman’s language explanation accompanying what we’re seeing would help a lot.
jeremy carson3 @seanhan for example, explain to me what mining means. what is a block? those kind of things. this still seems just like a visual representation of an engineer’s brain. but explaining each step and not just making a flow chart could make the concept of blockchains much more digestible by the public. i don’t have any existing examples offhand, but those are my $.02
Alexander Isora 🦄3 Hello, @seanhan! Thanks for your contribution to the Bitcoin community. I've pushed the project to the 'Learning' section on <a href="https://github.com/coinpride/CryptoList">CryptoList</a>.
Sean Han1 @alexanderisora Great! :)
Rick Kats6 i have to admit, this is pretty confusing.
Rick Kats0 @seanhan i trade bitcoins daily, using coin base and other platforms - howevery the app you made, doesn't make much sense to me
Ross Dyson4 No sure why this or your other teaching app is getting upvotes. I don't understand blockchain or blockchain transactions any more than I did prior to using your apps- which I should note are nothing more than pretty todo lists creators. Haven't used PH for a few years and honestly sad to see it reduced to silly attention-seeking 'products' like this.
Daniel Montgomery2 This works particularly well if you're showing it to someone while explaining what is happening. Of course, that requires prior knowledge about how bitcoin works. I'm not sure I'd get it just from using the website.
Bohdan Vorona2 Hi. Thanks for the website. I wrote about Coin Demo on my Telegram channel -> https://t.me/bohdan_v/85 And Twitter -> https://twitter.com/bohdanvorona/status/945360731700191233
Adi3 I would have to agree with others - it is pretty confusing. Here is short video that explains blockchain really simply. If you can replicate this it'd be awesome! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_160oMzblY8
salim madjd0 @adinew excellent video. Thanks for sharing
