ChainEd is an intermediate course in CryptoEconomics for people who want to build on a basic knowledge of blockchain. We seek to teach students to critically engage with key ideas in cryptoeconomics.
We use crypto incentives to manage educational activities. An example, a student stakes money which they lose if they don't complete assignments. And tutors stake for the privilege to mark work which they then get paid for, but they lose their stake if they fail to mark on time.
This course works through key topics in cryptoeconomics whilst actually using some of the blockchain techniques that it explores. So by doing the course and using its materials, you gain a practical understanding of the subject matter.
Here's an outline of the course in action, with buttons that let you actually take part and run the blockchain functions in question.
Note: None of the smart contracts used in this project are live - functions below are illustrative.
