BTC Goes to College: Texas A&M to Launch ‘Bitcoin Protocol’

  1. Texas A&M Has Begun Teaching Students about Bitcoin.
  2. Professor Korok Ray will be teaching the “Bitcoin Protocol” at the premises.
  3. Several schools in the U.S. now provide instruction on blockchain technology and crypto law and regulation.

Texas A&M University, which is one of the major universities in the United States, has started educating its students about bitcoin as the use of the cryptocurrency continues to rise. The news was announced on the 13th of January by Associate Professor Korok Ray of the Mays Business School at Texas A&M. 

Professor Ray will be teaching the “Bitcoin Protocol” course to students in the Mays Business School and the College of Engineering when the Spring Semester begins on the 17th of January.

In his four-part Twitter thread, Ray said that the “Programming Bitcoin” course would adhere to the Bitcoin Protocol and that students will learn how to “create a Bitcoin library from scratch.” 

In addition to this, he said that obtaining clearance from the necessary curriculum committee body at the school was not an easy task. It required a number of months of consistent effort to accomplish this goal according to him.

Josh Cowell, a researcher in the field of cryptography, has stated his opinion that the lack of comprehensive instructional materials on the topic is preventing its wider adoption. He contends that a rise in financial literacy may propel crypto adoption if more people had access to relevant educational resources.

It’s worth noting that a growing number of schools in the United States now provide instruction on blockchain technology and cryptocurrency law and regulation. Though many of the most in-demand positions in the cryptocurrency industry may be fulfilled without a college degree, an increasing number of educational institutions across the world are introducing courses in cryptocurrency.
