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

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.
