Oxford Professors Plan Launch of World’s First Blockchain-Based, Decentralized University
A group of Oxford professors are seeking full-degree granting powers in the EU for the world’s first “blockchain university”, according to an email shared with Cointelegraph today, June 14.
The proposed “blockchain university” will adopt the traditional Oxbridge course and collegiate structure by focusing on individual tutorial-led modules that will be available to students either on- or offline.
The project’s design is “geographically agnostic,” prioritizing a “borderless” academic community over local or national ties.
