Abstract

Blockchain is one of the hottest topics nowadays at many societal, industrial and academic conferences. The Blockchain is the core mechanism of digital currencies like Bitcoin. It has far reaching possibilities for applications in healthcare, public document management, and voting systems to name just a few. However, due to the many intrinsic technical aspects of blockchain technology, it is not easy for the general audience to understand the concepts well. This paper deals with the most natural methodology to educate Blockchain technology to young students and the general audience in a manner intended to those who have a very limited technical background.
