Demand for blockchain and crypto education is on the rise, as the technology becomes more popular. Coinbase and Qriously were conducted research on the topic which found that students from 50 top Universities around the world have signaled greater interest in cryptocurrencies and blockchain

Last year, courses on the subjects saw a sharp increase in the number of students, with 70% of them from Non-Computer Science Departments such as law, finance, and humanities.

Student’s interest in blockchain grows beyond IT

Nina Willdorf, the Director of Content at Coinbase, said:

“The fact that students from departments other than the traditional IT – law, finance, economics, and engineering, are also showing a substantial interest in the field of blockchain is exciting. Universities are also exploring ways to grab their students’ interest by meeting the surging demand in such courses.”

Likewise, Coinbase also found that the percentage of the top 50 Universities that teach crypto and blockchain increased from 42% in 2018 to 56% in 2019.

It has been reported that according to the research, Cornell is the “best” University for crypto, followed by MIT and the University of New York. The 10 best universities include top-ranked colleges in the U.S., Europe, and Singapore.

However, crypto and blockchain education emerged in 2017 when a group of Cornell students founded a blockchain club. A number of students from other departments across the campus joined the club soon after it was formed.

One of the club’s advisors said that Computer Science students accounted for only 30% of the total attendees.

Thus, most Universities, as well as educational websites, have already started to teach crypto and blockchain online. These online courses are taught by experts in the crypto sector.
