Abstract

Serious gaming lets participants experience a simulated world and can be used for three purposes: skills improvement, changing behavior and knowledge creation. It can provide a way to let employees of a company understand and discover applications of new technologies in complex ecosystems. The aim of this study is to build upon the knowledge of how serious gaming can be used to stimulate understanding on new technologies (by using DLT as a case study). A game is designed and used to create an environment to let participants experience a technology and have a better understanding of what the technology does in practise. Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) is used as a case for which serious gaming is tested. This subject is chosen because of two reasons: (1) the hype \cite{gartner2017} that exists around the technology blockchain and (2) companies are eager to learn what the applications of this technology are and how they can create value with the technology in their business. An application that is interesting to discover is the use of blockchain in distributed energy systems. This is a system where households with solar panels can exchange their produced electricity, supported by blockchain and without the need for an intermediary (utility).
