Hello again Product Hunt! Blockchain Demo is my attempt at demystifying the technology behind cryptocurrencies. It has a living blockchain, a peer-to-peer network, and a user tour. The popularity of Blockchain CLI (https://github.com/seanseany/blo...) motivated me to build Blockchain Demo. This project is also inspired by https://anders.com/blockchain/ If you have any feedback, please let me know! The more people that understand the technology, the better! Thank you for tuning in! Sean

@seanhan This is awesome, now I can send non-technical friends here instead of rambling about the components that make up a blockchain

This is really well executed Sean. As a visual learner this is *so* much easier to learn with than reading wikipedia or an article. Thanks for putting the time into this 🙌

@ddulic92 It uses the browser to mine a valid hash

@seanhan Couldn't you have done the guide without mining?
