If you’re not familiar with how blockchain works or you’re looking for a simple explanation to share with your students, Common Craft has you covered. Blockchain Explained by Common Craft makes a great analogy between keeping a ledger of tangible assets to keeping a ledger of digital assets. The presentation of that analogy makes it easy to understand how blockchain works.
