Volunteering to teach a crypto elective
This Friday, I am teaching an elective at Wyatt’s school on the topic of Crypto. We will be discussing a number of the basic concepts of blockchain / crypto, answering some questions and finally discussing something called “Play to Earn” gaming.
Play to earn is a somewhat new concept that is enabled by various characteristics of the blockchain, as well as tokenomics and various NFT (non-fungible token) characteristics.
I have seen multiple articles and videos discussing the fact that people can earn potentially hundreds of dollars playing these games, with power players earning much more. Below are some links that I’ll be using in class.
I plan to watch a very good Blockchain Basics training video with the class courtesy of LinkedIn Learning. I checked with LinikedIn already and they said it was OK to view with the kids.

We are going to look at up to 6 different Crypto Game websites today to show the kids the various types of games that allow you to earn crypto either through playing, or cultivating and selling items in the game.
