Crypto Makes Its Way to Academia

“A recent university study has endorsed Bitcoin as the next level in the evolution of money. Researchers at Imperial College London believe that cryptocurrencies are poised for mass adoption. The study which was sponsored by eToro examined the barriers to trust and mainstream adoption currently being faced by the emerging cryptocurrency movement,” reports Ethereum World News.

While the aforementioned survey focused on elite universities, data also suggest a wide range of colleges are offering crypto courses.

“Though their ‘analysis found that 42 percent of the top 50 universities offer at least one class on blockchain or cryptocurrency, and 22 percent offer more than one,’ if their findings included already existing courses in crypto, a whopping ’70 percent of universities offer at least one crypto-related class,” according to the survey.
