"Cryptocurrency" and Bitcoin

Bitcoin Education Grows as Universities Begin Offering Crypto Classes

College can be an exciting and monumental time for many people. As the Wizard tells the Scarecrow, “Men enter universities, and when they come out, they think deep thoughts.” While this statement still holds true today, many of those thoughts focus new technologies and ideas. Until now, it wasn’t uncommon to run into students majoring in subjects such as psychology, communications, or even nursing. So many degrees to choose from, but if none of them fit your fancy, what can you do? Well, why not try Bitcoin?

If you wanted to learn anything about the blockchain, altcoins, and their functions, NYU and Duke were the places to do it. NYU’s first course was known as “The Law and Business of Bitcoin and Other Cryptocurrencies,” while Duke’s was called “Innovation, Disruption, and Cryptoventures.” The main focuses of the class were on businesses oriented around the blockchain.
