Based on the concept of Squidgame users receive cards with a barcode leading to the game. The crux of the game is that it ends just before the user was about to win- on gnista.io’s website users manually put in IoT sensor data and learn the value of the data on energy optimization and Co2 emissions. After completion users are taken back to the game to complete the challenge. The purpose is to help engineers understand the value of their data and learn how to use gnosis.io’s API in an exciting and engaging manner.
