Already posted here, but I just wan to add that, if not a particular class about bitcoin and cryptocurrencies and blockchain, what I would offer is a strong development in programming and IT development.  Those two will strongly be tied to blockchain and with this the learning of it will be automatically done.  About Bitcoin and Cryptocurrencies, I think that the search of this will be natural once they started to learn about blockchain.  There will be a future when everybody will be using it, with no questions or hesitations such as we use right now google or Excel spreadsheet.  Ask anybody who uses Excel in a regular basis in what language is it written....they don´t have a clue but the are users of it.  Same will happen with blockchain and all the apps that soon will be available for people to use.  Good luck.

I personally think people should have the option to study blockchain if they want to, as long as blockchain keeps existing and being used by some companies and institutes more and more universities going to offer blockchain education, probably in next 10 years or so we will be seeing more of this around the world.

What news, I have not even heard about bitcoin courses and classes, especially at university. But I think it is really smart and good ideas nowadays because we can hear a lot about bitcoins as a cryptocurrency and blockchain, so we have to be aware of it and its usage and investment to keep yourself and money in safe. It is a very common topic students light in their papers at school, so I think it worth to be taught professionally. I realized it when I went to the https://studydriver.com/cultural-identity-essay/ project to find help with assignments. I was looking for some cultural identity essay examples but found a lot about bitcoin too.

This is a rather old topic in regards to whether institutions should employ and teach future generations more about cryptocurrencies (Bitcoin is one of the leading one of course) and about the blockchain technology, my answer would be a resounding yes since it will help to build a better future in terms of monetary convenience and value at the same time.

Of course it's very good if bitcoin and blockchain start to be given education in schools. So from an early age already understood about bitcoin and blockchain technology. That way bitcoin growth will also be more rapid. I hope in every school there are lessons regarding bitcoin.

I think people should be aware about the world of crypto currencies. It will be good to have extra classes about this in school, they will know it about it sooner or later tho so might wanna let them know ahead. It might be able to help young individuals to start earning on their own through cryptos and trading.

Teaching children from a young age about cryptocurrencies is illogical because it will distract them from learning and make them turn to obtain those mysterious currencies, but in universities this is good, especially colleges that teach economics because economics students consider cryptocurrencies within the field of their studies and it is possible to develop the field of encryption So I support economics students after the age of 18 for cryptocurrencies

The University of California is now offering a class on cryptocurrency. Arizona State University has launched a blockchain research lab in collaboration with the Dash cryptocurrency. Stanford University began offering a Bitcoin class two years ago, and Fordham University started teaching students about cryptocurrency a year before that. Cambridge University is now including blockchain education as a core part of their Masters in Finance degree 
The reality is that an increasing number of universities are starting up Bitcoin education classes, and this push is starting to filter down to high schools. Students, on a percentage basis, are much more well-versed in the cryptocurrency sphere than older generations (such as their teachers), so it makes perfect sense that there’s an increasing demand for such education to be implemented on campuses.
At what age do you think students should start learning about cryptocurrencies?

Yes without any doubt all education institutions should offer cryptocurrency learning as in future ,the world will use currency to transaction, buy,shopping etc...moreover future world will be based on crypto currency so if some one gain enough knowledge about it then they can easily earn money via crypto world...so i think crypto currency education should provide every place of institutions

This is actually pretty good for the crypto industry. For me personally, I think cryptocurrencies will be a huge part in our future. So people being able to learn this things in school is a really smart thing. I already know what crypto is but for sure there are things that I don't know about.so if there was a school like that on my country, I would definitely want to enroll on that.

This is far from being true even in the near future. At best, cryptocurrency could be mentioned in Economics-related subjects as an elective lesson. Other than that, because of the tainted image of cryptocurrencies (being used in clandestine operations and flaws from being irreversible) I really don't think this would happen even in the years to come.

PS: See what happened to Libra?
