Blockchain Arrives on College Campuses
Sarah Gonser, The Hechinger Report
Earlier this year, several dozen University of California, Berkeley students folded themselves into gray chairs for a three-hour class on how to think like blockchain entrepreneurs. The evening’s challenge, presented by Berkeley City Councilmember Ben Bartlett, was to brainstorm how blockchain technology might be used to alleviate the city’s growing homeless problem.
A growing demand for scholarly research on blockchain and professionals with skills in the field is prompting more colleges and universities to add coursework on the technology.
