A Python based educational platform for learning and teaching the basic concepts of crypto currencies

Project description

Consult the module API page at

https://engineering.purdue.edu/kak/distCeroCoin/CeroCoinClient-2.0.1.html

for all information related to this module, including information regarding the latest changes to the code. The page at the URL shown above lists all of the module functionality you can invoke in your own code. That page also explains how the module can be used in a classroom setting to explain the following three fundamental concepts in crypto currencies: (1) What it means to mine a coin; (2) How the ownership of a coin is transferred from one CeroCoin client to another; and (3) How the notion of blockchain is used to prevent “double-spending”.

Version 2.0.1 is a Python 3.x compliant version of the CeroCoinClient module. This version should work with both Python 2.x and Python 3.x

Version 1.9.1 includes enhanced and cleaned-up documentation. The module implementation code remains unchanged.

Typical usage syntax for creating a CeroCoin client after you have installed the module:

ceronode = CeroCoinClient.CeroCoinClient(
                                  cerocoin_network           =  network,
                                  modulus_size               =  M,
                                  starting_pow_difficulty    =  N,
                                  num_transactions_in_block  =  K,
                                  max_iterations_debug_mode  =  200,
           )
ceronode.initialize_node_and_run()
