How Global Universities are Embracing Cryptocurrency
In so doing, the university joined a growing list of global higher education institutions which have also embraced the digital currency.
Here’s a run-down of some of the most crypto-friendly universities from across the globe.
Simon Fraser University, Canada
In August last year, Simon Fraser University (SFU) became the first in Canada to accept bitcoin, publicly announcing that it would take donations in the cryptocurrency.
New York University
Founded in 1831, New York University (NYU) – the largest private non-profit institution in American higher education – launched a cryptocurrency course in September 2014.
Launched by McGill Cryptocurrency Club in conjunction with Montreal’s Bitcoin Embassy, the event was inspired by the MIT Bitcoin Airdrop.
