    1. Discussion 1: Contrasting local and public test blockchains.
  • Discussion Board


    Contrasting local and public test blockchainsIn chapter 4, the author discusses different options for testing blockchain applications. For our course, we have chosen to use Ganache, a local test blockchain. Explore some of the advantages and disadvantages of using local and public blockchains to test apps and contrast the two options.

    • Create a new thread (by the FIRST DUE DATE)
      • Contract the advantages and disadvantages of using local and public blockchains to test applications.
      • Explain how each advantage and disadvantage impacts blockchain application development, and why each is important to a successful blockchain implementation.

    I’m interested to read what YOU learned from this week’s reading. Do NOT submit a research paper. Tell me what you think.

    • Think of three questions you’d like to ask other students and add these to the end of your thread.
      • The questions must be taken from material you read in Chapter 1 or 2, and each question should start a discussion topic.
      • You’re not trying to test each other, but you are trying to start a discussion.
    • Finally, go to three other students’ threads and post comments, answering at least one of their questions.
      • For EACH comment you post, use the 3CQ approach (described above.)
      • When someone asks you a question, answer it!

    ALL threads and comments must be substantive AND ORIGINAL. (I’m looking for about a paragraph – not just a short answer.) Do not plagiarize!! Use your own words.The discussions in this class exist to simulate face-to-face discussions. To reach that goal, we will adhere to the 3CQ model. After posting each thread, you will post at least 3 comments on other students’ threads, and each comment must conform to the 3CQ model (Compliment, Comment, Connect, Question). This model encourages discussions that extend class learning and participation.Here is a description of the 3CQ model:1. Compliment – Start off positive. Compliment the person on something specific you have read or observed in the person’s blog post. For example:

    • Thanks for sharing your thoughts! I really liked …

    2. Comment – Comment on something relevant and meaningful about what the person wrote. Be specific! Remember your comment might not always be agreement. You can “politely” disagree. For example:

    • I agree with you about …
    • I respect your opinion, but I think …

    3. Connect – Connect with something the person wrote (Text-to-Self, Text-to-Text, Text-to-World). Explain your connection with details giving your audience a clear idea of what you’re talking about by using sensory details. For example:

    • I can connect with you about …
    • I once read a story about …
    • I had the same thing happen to me…

    4. Question – Ask a specific question about something written or the writer. Keep the conversation going!Remember that ALL discussions must use the 3CQ approach to interaction.
