New York University (NYU) has become the first university in US to introduce a blockchain technology course.

Offered by NYU Stern School of Business, the new course  has been started with a hope to establish a groundwork so that the students can understand Blockchain and its implications.

According to a data released by Coinbase, more than 42 percent of world’s top 50 universities have atleast one class on crytocurrencies and blockchain.

The US is witnessing an increase in the investment in digital currencies. In fact, according to a study, 21.2 percent of college students used loan money to fund a crypto investment, hoping that the upward price volatility in crypto would help pay their debts faster.
