The blockchain-based system is widely being studied and implemented for dealing with various real problems from securing money transactions, data sharing in healthcare, and supply chain in businesses. In this study, we study a conceptual framework of a serious game for teaching how the mining process occurs in the blockchain using the proof-of-work consensus. The purpose of this game is to educate blockchain newcomers or developers the importance of mining within a short time, how the consensus works, the increasing problem complexity, and how coins can be obtained as the result of the mining. We believe that this conceptual game can contribute to the development of blockchain technology in general.
