Bitcoin Price Boom Sees Students Flocking to Take Cryptocurrency Courses

The rise of bitcoin is seeing an increasing number of students signing up for cryptocurrency classes at top computer science schools such as Stanford.

According to Dan Boneh, co-director of the Stanford Computer Security Lab and professor of cryptography, he is attracting a large number of people to his cryptocurrency courses. As a cryptography researcher for almost 30 years, Boneh began teaching a bitcoin and cryptocurrency class in 2015, attracting more than 100 students. His online cryptography course has seen over one million signing up, reports CNBC.

As a result of bitcoin’s increase in value more students are turning their attention to learning more about them. To date, the digital currency has hit a new all-time high near $6,500 pushing its market value above $100 billion. It’s no surprise then that a rising interest is being experienced. Aside from the huge attraction in the valuation of cryptocurrencies, Boneh believes that they have another benefit too.
