The Power of Blockchain

We are going to demonstrate how you easy it is to make an application that can be trusted by anyone by leveraging the Power of Blockchain. We will create a game where *cheating is impossible*. The game is a live guessing game. Anyone can set a challenge consisting of a question, its answer, and maybe even prize money. The first person to give the correct answer wins that challenge, and takes away the prize money.

The game consists of a web based UI, and a smart contract on the Ethereum blockchain where you would normally find the backend. This smart contract ensures that *not even us* can cheat the game.

We won’t bore you with powerpoint bullet lists from hell, nor will we simply use handwaving to explain the concepts. We will go on stage and *actually program* the game during this session. We’ll show you that especially in immature development environments you can rely on good coding practices such as Test Driven Development and Pair Programming.

We intend for you to walk away from this session not only knowing how to start developing a Blockchain app, but also wanting to!
