Kryptina and I are presenting "Generation Bitcoin" topic at Defcon Kids TODAY (sunday) at 11am and doing a crypto workshop at 2pm PST.

We will be talking about a GenerationBitcoin.com, which redirects to a facebook page for young adults to discuss Bitcoin topics. We will be discussing our experience with Bitcoin and giving a general overview of how Bitcoin works.

In the workshop, I will be presenting the kids with 4 crypto puzzles that will make them use different encoding methods to gain access to some private keys. Here's where you come in and will make a great talking point for the presentation. You have the opportunity to contribute to the reward for solving these problems.

#1 Basic key import, freebee giveaway to the quickest, teaching basic usage : http://blockchain.info/address/12SFHpZhGEZqabJ8nQTgb6y8p6pTt6dcJQ

#2 Rot13 puzzle : http://blockchain.info/address/1MV4fkTGeuxhdrKWkzS9B5STHCwWeTkNBW

#3 Base 64 puzzle : http://blockchain.info/address/1NVbbmwU1n41wVCzpxPizVqstKLjaTkDiv

#4 a secret is split 5 ways and hidden around the workshop. they must find at least 3 of them and combine the secrets with the SSSS source code to gain access to the key with the grand prize: http://blockchain.info/address/1CXePecRqV9fydDN25HFs9Gc8xw73FqENN

I got a chance to see the event live. Very inspiring stuff to watch kids engaged with solving the puzzles and learning about bitcoin. We need more of this kind of outreach.

Kudos to Tuxavant, he really put a lot of work into making this a great event!

I wish I'd seen this earlier.  If you do something like this again (bitcoin outreach) please PM me so I can send a few coins.

While no idea is perfect, some ideas are useful.

Thanks for the support guys! This really was an awesome experience! I'm very proud of my kid PWNING a lot of the other events and challenges. They had to create a new award category just for her this year: Most Valuable Hacker. Proud dad is proud.

We had about 30 people in our Generation Bitcoin talk and there was over 100 kids in attendance for the whole Defcon Kids event.

BTW, I think the thing that flipped my lid the most was the number of girl hackers there were. The ratio was 3:1 girls to boys at my crypto challenge.

I am so jealous of all the little hacker dudes. I wish girls were this interested in hacking on computers two decades ago. Better late than never I guess.

Congrats to your daughter for getting the MVH! She is lucky to have such an awesome Dad.
