Dutch hacker puts his kid’s LEGO train on the blockchain

Blockchains are everywhere, we get it. But did you know blockchain is now powering a little toy train?

Dutch hacker/dad Roeland P Lanparty has turned his son’s LEGO Duplo toy into a literal STEEM train. It’s been modified to be driven by mining the STEEM cryptocurrency.

Even cooler, the number of transactions in each block has an effect on its speed. The bigger the size of the blocks, the faster it goes. If less people are using the blockchain, it will go slower.

But wait, it gets better. Lanparty is an active STEEM miner, and he’s hacked the STEEM train to make a little “choo-choo” noise when he signs a block to celebrate receiving the reward.
