*Edit Reason: Python tags*) Can anybody help? Why am I getting a AttributeError: Blockchain has no attribute "latest block. Error message

Please post all code, output and errors (in it's entirety) between their respective tags. I did it for you this time, Here are instructions on how to do it yourself next time.
