Visualization of Blockchain Consensus Degradation

The goal of this project was to develop a software framework for generating local versions of different blockhains that allows students to gain hands-on experience on various popular blockchains by using environments which are as close as possible to the production systems. This includes creating their own versions of the popular cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Ethereum, mining blocks, exchanging assets and creating smart contracts underlying the decentralized applications such as decentralized exchanges and tokens (both fungible and non-fungible). This is achieved by developing slightly modified blockchain clients and streamlining the process of running blockhain nodes and validators so that students can easily participate in the blockchain network and develop their own applications and use cases.
