A survey has been done on the amount of interest that universities and students have in cryptocurrency, and the results may surprise you.
According to the study conducted by Coinbase for the exchange of mega-cryptocurrency, there is an appeal that the currency-based currency blockchain and the attraction to technology is gaining significantly despite the recent decline of the market.
Coinbase shared results:
- 42 percent of the 50 best universities in the world now offer at least one course on cryptography or blockchain
- Students in a series of majors are interested in cryptography courses and blockchain and universities are adding courses in a variety of departments
- Coinbase's original research includes a Qriously survey of 675 US students, a comprehensive review of courses at 50 international universities and interviews with professors and students
As a case study, Coinbase used a cryptocurrency class at New York University's Stern School of Business to show growing interest. At the university, David Yermack started a blockchain and financial services course in 2014 and only 35 students signed up. However, in 2018 the number of enrolled students was 230 students, which led the university to move the course to the largest classroom. This is an increase of over 550% of students.
Regarding the course, Yermack stated that a system " is well underway and will lead to the migration of most financial data to blockchain-based organizations [and] much by studying this area."
Stern Business School is not the only university to show more attention to cryptocurrency studies. Coinbase discovered that Stanford offered ten different courses in the field, Cornell offers nine and the University of Pennsylvania holds six.
According to the study, students who opt for cryptocurrency courses come from a range of different departments, such as finance, computer science and anthropology. Dawn Song, professor of computer science at the University of California, hypothesizes that it is possible that the blockchain is interesting for its potential to influence different domains in society, stating that " Blockchain combines theory and practice and can lead to discoveries fundamental in many areas of research " and offering that it could" have very profound and large-scale impacts on society in many different sectors. "
At the beginning of this & # 39; year, it was found that 20% of American students had used their university loans to buy cryptocurrencies, so it makes sense that students are interested in digital currencies and how the blockchain on which it is based works.
