Hello hackers, I’m really proud to announce that we’re launching Blockchain Battle, an online class to learn the fundamentals of blockchain and cryptocurrency in a fun and engaging way.

Our goal is to get help the general public understand important topics in science in technology through games.

This project started as a game that we showed at a few festivals in France. But we found a bunch interesting questions that we couldn’t address in the game. We decided that it would be fun to record videos to answer those questions, and then assemble them into an online class.

In the class, we ping-pong between levels of the game and the new videos, to get the best of both worlds. Here’s the trailer to give you a better idea of what I'm talking about:


I'd love any feedback you might have!

Best, Jesse

PS: As a Hacker News reader, you might know this stuff already. But the goal is to help non-tech people get a grasp of how it works...
