I was trying to explain to my girlfriend how the blockchain works and why it is so secure that I simplified the explanation to a point where I was able to build a little game.
The game objective is to make a fork longer than the mainchain. You havo to mine spending electricity and buying electricity spending money. Mining in the mainchain is difficult but gives you money, mining in a fork is easy but you will only waste power.
I want to make this app a nice start for newcomers that want to understand why the blockchain is hard to hack!

The game beta is live in:
http://proofcha.in

GitHub:
https://github.com/proofchain

All sounds were made by using my chipmusic tool called Deflemask (deflemask.com)

Feel free to criticize, laugh or contribute to this blockchain-how-it-works-game.  Grin

Unlike traditional banking where clients have only a few account numbers, with Bitcoin people can create an unlimited number of accounts (addresses). This can be used to easily track payments, and it improves anonymity.

Tried the game,

Could create a fork ... but could not mine a block. Kept left clicking but only electricity decreased.

Can you simplify game mechanics a bit. Most people dont bother reading instructions

Yeah you may have bad luck at first. It is really easy to mine a block in a forked chain actually.

So maybe I am an idiot. Because either I can't get how blockchain works or I am too dumb to understand how I can win in this game.
Because every time I lose all my electricity and I can mine anything. But huge props to Op for creating something like this.

Apart from the sound it's actually a nice  game when it comes to information about how the mining process work.
But the notifications should be displayed much longer, only after 4 times i was able to read it.
